This venue is located along the course and serves an excellent 4-course meal with water, soft drinks, beer, wine and champagne. Another nice feature of this venue is that the caravan passes right in front and throws gifts to the crowds. After the caravan passes, you will have a great view of the racers as they pass. Today is a 22km Individual Time Trial which includes the famous Domancy climb…a unique way to watch today’s stage.

Dinner is not included tonight after the big lunch, so it is a perfect opportunity to relax at the hotel and enjoy the magnificent views.

Tour in Paris and private viewing of race on river cruise

Date Saturday, July 22 Hotel Location Paris

We are planning a tour or activity this morning in Paris. We don’t know exactly what it will be until closer to the time, but we are considering an e-bike tour of Paris. This tour provides many little known secrets in addition to several of the famous Paris landmarks. We will keep you posted on this.

After our activity, we’ll transfer to the river for a cruise. We’ll enjoy a late lunch with drinks as we watch the finish of today’s stage on TV, while cruising on the River Seine. Sights you’ll see along the way include Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower. After the race finishes, we’ll head back to the hotel where you’ll have the evening free.

No group dinner tonight as you may wish to stop at a cafe for a bite or indulge in a gourmet dinner at Foquet’s. Bon Appétit!

Day 07

Tour de France finish in Paris!

Date Sunday, July 23 Hotel Location Paris

After an incredibly packed itinerary for the last several days, you will have some free time this morning in Paris. We will meet around 14:00 to walk to our VIP venue to view the final stage of le Tour in Paris.

We will be in the Izoard VIP located at the bottom of the Champs Elysees at Place de la Concord for the final stage. This venue has great food and drinks and will serve champagne to toast the winner of the Tour de France. Another nice feature of this venue is that the team buses park nearby and you can walk around the buses and see the racers as they return.

After the finish, you can make your way back to the hotel. This is a great walk along the Champ Elysees as the crowd is energetic from witnessing the finish of the race.

Day 08
