TourCrafters is offering a package for a week in Paris in winter when the lines are shorter and prices are lower. TourCrafters is offering a land-only Classic Paris in winter package priced from $1,139 per person until March 17. The package includes private airport transfers, six nights’ accommodation in a three-star hotel, six breakfasts, one lunch, a sightseeing cruise on the Seine, a five-day Paris Visite Pass, a two-day Museum Pass, and a one-day Hop On Hop Off sightseeing tour.
The Hop On Hop Off bus tour introduces many of the city’s major sights, including the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Notre Dame, Musée d’Orsay, Opera Garnier, Champs Elysées and Arc de Triomphe.

The Museum Pass gives free access to 60-some museums and monuments (including the Louvre and Musée d’Orsay). Also included is a cruise on the River Seine in a glass-covered boat followed by a French-style three-course lunch in a riverside café-restaurant.
The hotels featured are the boutique Hotel Relais Monceau in the 8th arrondisement or the modern Standard Design Hotel near the Place de la Bastille. Upgrades are available to the four-star Concorde Opera Hotel near the Opera Garnier and the big department stores at a cost of $1,456, and the five-star Hotel du Louvre, near the Louvre and Palais Royal, priced from $1,668. Prices are per person double occupancy.
