The ‘Paris – Free & Easy’ package is designed for travelers who prefer to have their own ground itinerary and explore the city in their own time. However, they can still choose to hop into individual optional tour packages by MASholidays if they wish to visit certain parts of the city with a guide. The optional tours are categorized into city sightseeing that offer either coach or walking tour of Paris. Some of the city sightseeing walking tours include Gourmet Walking Tour, La Vallee Village Shopping Center, Wine Tasting at O’ Chateau, Palace of Versailles walking tour, walk the historic Notre Dame, chocolate tasting tour and many others.

For the adventure seekers, the choices range from the theme park of Disneyland Paris, Asterix Park or Hop On Hop Off Batobus. Mystic seekers have the option to join the eerie tour of the Graves of Paris or Catacombs of Paris whilst listening to the haunting stories and legend that embody these galleries of skeletons.
Customers who prefer to be on a fully guided tour can also choose the all-inclusive packages from the 'Simply Paris' or the ‘Paris & Splendid Palace of Versailles’ tours.
The ‘Simply Paris’ package is a 5days/3nights package that welcomes the customers to explore the splendors of the Parisian gems such as the Champ Elysees, Arch de Triophe, Trocadero, the iconic Eiffel Tower, the Seine River Cruise and the Luvre Museum.
The Champ Elysees is a street in Paris with its cinemas, cafés, luxury specialty shops and clipped horse-chestnut trees. This is is arguably the most famous street in the world and an ideal location to shop for unique stuff to take back home. The Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile, one of the most famous monuments in Paris, is also located at the Champ Elysees.
The holiday trip to Paris would not be complete without a romantic evening to remember on the River Seine cruise. The boats are glass-covered, operating all year around, and everyone gets a great view. The Bateaux Parisiens boats all leave from and return to the Quai Branly, close to the Eiffel Tower which is the tallest structure in Paris and the most-visited paid monument in the world. A visit to the Eiffel tower is also included in the package.
The Louvre Musuem, which is situated the banks of the Seine River is the world's largest museum. This magnificent structure has housed priceless art in France since 1793, including the Mona Lisa by Michelangelo.
In the Louvre, visitors will find some 35,000 works of art divided into eight departments: the Near Eastern Antiquities, Egyptian Antiquities, Greek, Etruscan and Roman Antiquities, Islamic Art, Sculptures, Decorative Arts, Paintings, Prints and Drawings.
Another choice with longer travel time is the 6Days/4Nights, Paris & Splendid package. The visit to the mind blowing Palace De Versailles apartments is added on to this trip.
