    Hello,

    Firstly, thank you for your continued help with all my questions! 3 more - hopefully easy ones.

    Can you hire kettles from Cheyenne? We are planning on making flasks of hot choc for our children to take to park.

    What's Cheyenne buffet like? We are considering for night 1

    Has anyone done a bus tour of Paris?? Is it worth it? I googled and there are a few! Which is best?

    Thanks again everyone

    Tammy

    The Cheyenne is a bit hit and miss with kettles in rooms. Some have them, some don't. If your room doesn't have a kettle you can hire one for a small deposit.

    We did a bus tour of Paris last June and it was brilliant. I have just recommended it on another thread here too - hope nobody thinks I work for the comapny or have shares!

    We went wirh a company called Foxity. You can book and pay online and print out your ticket before you go. Then just get the bus in Place de la Madeleine and off you go! It is on an open top bus which has a clear roof which slides into place if it rains and you get headsets with commentary in English. It goes around the forty most popular sites in Paris and kids under 12 go free.

    We went at lunchtime and took our own picnic to eat and drink as we went round. Saved a fortune on buying lunch in a restaurant and also time as we were only in the city for the day and had plenty to do.

    Hope that helps. :)

    Just looked at the website it looks good and is less than half the price of the city bus tour I had looked at! Can I ask is it suitable for kids or do you think they would get bored? They are 6&4 this tour looks much better but as you can't get off til the end it worries me a little. Thanks

    It very likely was upon your recommendation Carrie! And it was a very good one as usual :thumbsup2 If you get a moment, would you possibly be kind enough to put up the number that can be used to reroute telephone calls at a cheaper rate please?

    I have to telephone a gent in Agde about a holiday let and it could be quite a long call and it would be ever so useful.

    Are you planning on having breakfast at the Cheyenne? If so, you could just get a couple of mugs of hot chocolate from there and decant them into your thermos flasks to take with you.

    Great idea bout the breakfast - thank you. Didn't even consider that they would do hot choc! Any thoughts on if the bus tour is suitable for children those who have been?

    I booked a tour as part of my package deal with Thomas cook. It cost £67 but included going up the Eiffel Tower, cruise on the Seine seeing all the sights and touristy bits. It leaves the hotel New York at 9.45am and returns just after 6pm. You get a headset with English commentary. Has anyone done this tour? Sounded good as I didn't fancy spending half the time getting lost in Paris!

    There were several small children when we went, I'd say from 4-8ish and they seem to have great fun looking at all the sights and pointing things out to their parents.

    Don't know how old Jules children are ? but I'm sure she be back in a bit :)

    Jonjo came up with this site the other day which apparently only charges 1p per minute :wizard:

    http://www.0044.co.uk/france/cheap-international-calls.htm

    So it knocks my 5p a minute to the sidlines :rotfl:

    Good luck with your call :goodvibes
