    What is Paris like in May? May is a wonderful month to visit Paris. If you are looking to find a balance between good weather and crowds, you will not find it any better than Paris in May. In May, spring is in full flow, days are longer, and you will find plenty to do in and out. May in Paris is a great time to stroll through the city, enjoy the numerous parks’ colors, and have a drink in a sunny café. Overall, Paris in May is a combination of city perfection & good weather with busy crowds (but not like in the summer).

    **********************************************
    NOTE: A STANDARD SEAT WILL BE ASSIGNED AUTOMATICALLY FOR EVERYONE IN OUR GROUP 45 days before the tour. BUT (ONLY if you need to upgrade your seat), please see the following fees and information.
     
    AIR TRANSAT - Advance seat selection 
    If you would like to select/upgrade your seat, please let us know AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!
    IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT UPGRADING YOUR SEAT
    • o A standard seat will be assigned for you automatically by Air Transat 45 days prior to departure. It means we don't know what seat you will get until that time. Therefore, if you would like to guarantee a specific seat (Aisle/Window/more Legroom or Exit row), you must let us know ASAP and be ready to pay up-front. Please refer to the above link/table for the rates 
    • o The Group seat block is located in the middle to the back of the aircraft typically over the wing. The block does not include any exit row or special request seating.   
    • o Changes can be made within the assigned block to families that are not seated together (for free), but all other changes will incur a charge.  
    • o 45 days prior to departure you will know what type of standard seat you will be getting (Aisle/Middle/Window). But you may not be able to upgrade it at that time since your preferred seats may not be available at that time. That's why we suggest upgrading ASAP if you really like to guarantee a specific seat (Aisle/Window/more Legroom or Exit row). 

    Pickup

    You will see "Noushin" (your tour conductor) at Pearson Airport, at the departure gate, one hour before the flight. She will travel with you from Toronto.
