London to Paris Day Trip

When in London next month, We are considering a Paris day trip with 11 and 17 year old sons. Any opinions / experience with this? How long of a day would this be? I don't want to ruin something like this if it is exhausting for everyone!

We'll, we do not know the stamina of your boys but if you take a really early train and a late-ish train back, you could have 6 - 8 hours to sightsee. A hop-on/hop-off bus stops at the Gare du Nord, where you will get off the Eurostar. That is one option. There are also companies (Grayline) which do one day tours from London.

It's doable, but you may find the cost involved will give you second thoughts. If you had purchased the Eurostar tickets six months early you could have gotten the lowest prices. Now it could be a very expensive day trip. I would compare the cost of doing it yourself to the cost of an organized tour.
