Trip Planning FAQs
How to get around France?
Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport and Nice Cote D'Azur Airport are the two major international airports in France, for entries and departures. France’s train network is widespread and runs frequently, so it is a fantastic way to travel within the country. You are advised to book the train tickets in advance, the earlier, the more you save! Also it is quite convenient to get metro, buses and taxis in cities, and Uber is available throughout the country. If you take a private guided holiday package to France, the guide and transfer service will be arranged.
How about the voltage and plugs in France?
Electricity is supplied at 220 to 230V 50Hz. Travelers from the US, Canada, Japan and other countries using 110V, 60Hz may need a voltage converter. Travelers from the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark, Italy, Switzerland and other countries using 230V 50Hz which use different plugs simply require a plug adaptor for their electrical appliances in France.
Is cheap wine equal to bad wine in France?
In some countries, it is widely believed that you get what you pay for. In France, however, you'll be pleasantly surprised at how cheap the wine is. So you do not have to splash out at the restaurant to get something drinkable, sometimes the house wine in the barrel, delivered from the vineyard to the road, can be a very pleasant experience!
What is the traditional French food?
A very traditional French set meal has thirteen courses, and tends to have three parts for a meal: an appetizer (sometimes soup), a main course (steak and French fries), and a dessert or cheese afterwards.
Any tipping suggestion for France tours?
In France, tax and service charge will be included in the bill, and tipping isn't mandatory. Leaving a small tip is a courtesy if you are satisfied with the service.
The amount is up to you, usually 20 cents for coffee, and 1-2 Euros or more for high-end restaurants or even Michelin restaurants.
