I have looked at different itineraries touring Northern France after our 3 week River Cruise Trip. I'm finding some of the tours are a little rushed and doing it totally on our own a little challenge with luggage, Hotel and no car. Rick Steve's 11 day tour looks great but we leave two days before the tour ends so that won't work. I was wondering what everyone thought of spending all 12 days in Paris and taking day trips out either on one day tours or train out of Paris and spending the day but not worry about Hotel and Luggage.
I know they have day trips to Normandy and the Loire Valley. We are both seniors and in my youth this wouldn't have been a problem.
Let me know what you think I have to decide by Friday of either a rushed tours or basing all 12 days in Paris.
