London to Paris- mother daughter trip

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip with my 16 year old daughter to London in early July 2013.
We will be in London for 10 days during which we plan to spend 2 days and 1 night in Paris.
We would like to go on the Eurostar roundtrip. We orginally thought we would book an escorted tour with either Golden/Grayline Tours or Premier Tours. Upon reading some unfavorable reviews I am wondering if we should plan it on our own?
Any advice on these tour companies or any others would be greatly appreciated!
Safety is my main concern and since we do not speak French how hard is it to get around?
Our plan is to spend the first day touring Paris and the second day at Paris Disney for my daughter's birthday. I am not sure where to book a hotel? The ones closer to Disney offer shuttle service to & from Disney. Also, when I looked at the Eurostar website there is a train stop in front of Disney but it looks like the time table is limited?
Being from Hawaii we are not familiar with the underground systems for transportation so we are looking forward to the adventure! Also, in London is it better to buy an oyster card as well as the paper rail ticket (with the 2 for 1 deals)? We look forward to any thoughts and advice!
Thank you!
