trip to France - what to reserve in advance

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip to Brussels and France in June. My DH has a business meeting in Brussels - hence the somewhat last minute decisions.

We plan to fly into Brussels and stay a few days with a side trip to Bruges one day. Then will take the train to Strasbourg and base ourselves there for 4 nights to explore Alsace. Then will take a train to Paris and spend 5 nights there before flying home. We do not plan to rent a car.

My question is - what should we reserve in advance? We already have plane reservations and hotels in the first two places - I'm working on Paris. Other than that

I assume we should book the train from Brussels to Strasbourg online?
I also assume we can buy tickets at the station for day trips from Brussels to Bruges and Strasbourg to Colmar. Is that right?

If we want to take a group tour of the wine route in Alsace, should we book in advance? (This one looked good, but I'm open to other suggestions

For the final leg, we'd like to take the train to Paris from Strasbourg. Hoping to stop off in Reims and take a tour of a champagne cellar. Can we book all the way through and get off in Reims? Or should we book to Reims in advance and then get a local ticket from there to Paris? Should we book a champagne cellar tour in advance?

Is there anything in Paris, other than dinners in fancy restaurants, that needs to be booked in advance?

Thanks so much for your help.
