Which location is best for buying gifts and souvenirs?
Both Paris and Nice are brimming with beautiful markets and local shops. Your Pack Leader will be able to offer more in-depth information depending on what you’re looking to buy.

Your days will normally start at around 9 am.
How long is each activity?
On day 2, you’ll explore the streets of Paris’s Quartier Latin on a scavenger hunt, then board a boat down river, this should take you around 2 hours. Your painting, cycling and boat cruise in Cassis will all last for approximately 2 and a half hours each.
You can use your app to see a more detailed itinerary before your adventure begins. You’ll also be reminded of the itinerary at the welcome meeting.
What will we do if it rains?
You’ll be in amazing places on this trip, your Pack Leader will have a back up plan for any bad weather.
I don’t know how to ride a bike, is there an alternative activity?
If bike riding isn’t for you, your Pack Leader will help you with an alternative. If you’re not a confident cyclist but would like to take part in the activity, the bikes are electric and the route doesn’t take in any steep hills so you can take the cycle at your own pace.
I don’t know how to swim, is there an alternative activity?
Life vests are provided on the boat for your Cassis cruse on day 7, or you can sunbathe on deck if you’d prefer not to snorkel. If you’re not keen on sunbathing you will have the option to explore Provence and Nice on days 5 and 7 during your beach/free time.
What is there to do during the free time?
Paris’s seductive charm is world-famous. As a global centre for art, fashion, and culture, it has its fair share of landmarks. We recommend arriving a day early if possible to fit in time for shopping and to visit the many museums and galleries.
Vieille Ville is the oldest part of the Nice, its winding alleys of local shops and restaurants is worth a visit. You’ll also be spoilt for choice for beach side bars and restaurants along the Promenade.
