I will be arriving at CDG at 11;30 AM on Sunday the 7th. Looking to share a taxi to our hotel. Kevin O'Reilly

I wonder if anyone has experience with Paris in January? Anyone thinking of the January 17th trip?

Laura Steele Aug 26, 2014 at 09:41 AM

I'm scheduled for the 10/4-10/12 Paris trip. Would love to hear/see who else is doing that. I'll be coming from Nice as I'm doing the So. France trip the week before. Oh and I'm leaving from the DC area on 9/25.

John Hayes Aug 19, 2014 at 02:12 PM

21 September arrival. I will be traveling from London on the Eurostar. Is anyone else in the 21-28 September group doing the same thing?
Lynn Forsberg Aug 21, 2014 at 10:19 AM

I am in that group but traveling from Denver, Co.through Iceland. Look forward to meeting you. Lynn Forsberg

This is probably a very early posting but I am signed up for the Independent Paris trip, Dec. 6-14. I have extended my stay, arriving early--on Dec. 5--and staying till Dec. 19. I have arranged through Road Scholar to stay at Le Patio Saint Antoine during that entire period. I am wondering whether anyone else will be staying on after the program ends on Dec. 14. I am interested in taking a day trip or two out of Paris, plus would like to attend the Paris Opera House on the evening of Dec. 17 to see the ballet, La Source. Alternatively, though I prefer ballet to opera, there is the opera Hansel and Gretel on the evenings of Dec. 14 and 16. Tickets can be purchased online. I will be flying nonstop on US AIR out of Philly on Dec. 4.

Hi Carol, I'll be on the same program but won't be staying afterwards. I just wanted to say that there might be some organ concerts (or other concerts) in some of the churches. If possible, I will try to attend one. Maybe you'd like to go to?

Lynn Forsberg Aug 17, 2014 at 08:59 PM

Like to connect with someone going on this trip arriving in Paris Sept. 21. I depart Denver Co. on the 20 and fly through Iceland to Paris. Lynn Forsberg

Anyone arriving at CDG on 9/6 for this program? I am arriving at 8:45 AM and would love to connect and share a taxi to the hotel.

Mary Carol Hopkins Jun 23, 2014 at 05:23 PM

I'm arriving at deGaulle at 6:10 a.m on Aug. 3. Happy to share a ride to Patio Ste. Antoine for anyone arriving within a couple of hours.
