Why It's a Deal According to a recent search on Kayak, the lowest round-trip fares between New York City and Paris start from $863 with taxes for travel in early to mid-May (US Airways). Add to that about $374 per person, including hotel taxes, for four nights at Le Quartier Bastille, Le Faubourg hotel, and you'd be paying a total of $1,237 for just airfare and accommodations if you booked this independently. This TourCrafters package not only covers the airfare and four nights' hotel for $25 less, but it includes daily breakfast, a sightseeing tour to Paris's historic sites valued at $26, and all hotel taxes and fees.
More Optional activities include a tour of Montmartre and the Louvre ($96 per person), a tour of hidden treasures of Paris ($51 per person), and a guided visit to Versailles ($100 per person). Additional nights in a double room at Le Quartier Bastille, Le Faubourg range between $83 to $91 per person per night, depending on travel dates.
