Provence vs Provence & Paris

We are trying to decide which trip to take, 8 days in Provence or 8 days in Provence and Paris. Have never been to Paris so thinking the overview of Paris might be helpful as we want to extend our stay in Paris. The 8 days in Provence sounds wonderful as well and we could do Paris on our own. Any thoughts anyone.


  • We did the French Waterways in 2016. 2 days in Paris then river cruise on the Rhône starting in Lyon and going through Provence. It was a very good trip. Only negative was the opening dinner at Fouquets which was not worth the time. This exact river cruise is not available but Savoring France seems to be a very similar replacement. I highly recommend this trip.

    In general I'd say go for the Provence only since you plan on adding time in Paris.

    However, two things to consider.

    Which itinerary/sights do you prefer? Provence only is a culturious branded tour so a slightly different focus than the standard Tauck land tour.

    Note that the Provence tour is a 4/3 activity and pace tour vs 2/2 for the combined tour. Are you up for the more rigorous activity and pace?
