It's certainly possible to do a day-trip from Paris to London. Eurostar takes a little over 2 hours each way from Paris (Gare du Nord) to London (St Pancras) and back. In both directions you clear immigration (both exit and entry!) before boarding the train, which adds a little to the total time. However, if you've never been to Paris before, I'm really ...

Are you going by land or by plane or boat? If flying or going by boat you will need to apply for an ESTA as you are Irish citizens, Ireland is a visa waiver country. Certain ferry crossings count as land crossings though which I have pointed out further down in my answer. If you are going by land you won't need an ESTA. You will be given an I-94W by the ...

Its the city centre walk around for 2h you will see viennese operas, palace and shopping streets around.

Having recently hiked rim to river and back, I can tell you that hiking in the Canyon has been one of the most transformative events of my life. It's beauty is beyond words. The most important thing to remember is don't be this guy. Take your time, and enjoy the beauty. Staying there, getting there. Ideally, you would spend the night as near to the rim ...

By public transport it's little harder to get there, but yes, it is possible: 1) Go to Brno first. The easiest and most comfortable is by bus with the company Student Agency (it's very popular transport - I recommend to buy a ticket in advance - you can do it online) 2) Brno to Blansko by train and Blansko to Punkva caves by bus Search departures on ...

There are some good opportunities, for example: Fontainebleau (outer suburbs to the south-east, about 45 minutes by train from Gare de Lyon + 30 minutes of bus from Gare de Fontainebleau-Avon to the palace) Vincennes (inner suburbs to the east, terminal of metro line Ⓜ①) Chantilly (northern suburbs, about 1 hour: take a train from gare du Nord (or the ...

It's definitively possible. If you check Google Maps, you can see that an one-way journey takes approximately 3 hours. So If you leave early morning, you can be there on late forenoon. Then you can spend some hours there and go back late evening. However, you have to decide by yourself if that's reasonable for you. You will have to drive a long time in one ...

The City Airport Train will take you (close to) the center in just 16 minutes. It is however a lot more expensive than the regular train going the same way in just 10 or so minutes more. Each of the two trains runs every 20-30 minutes, so the fastest option depends on when exactly you arrive at the train station. From the terminal Wien Mitte-Landstraße you ...

Well it's POSSIBLE. The train ride is 2.5 hours, roughly, plus time in customs/waiting. So yeah, you could do it. However, should you? No. If you only have three days, don't spend what's realistically 8 hours once you include waiting and travel time, unless you're a real train fan and want to try out the Eurostar. IF however, you do, then you'll arrive ...

Yes. I recently stayed at Calangute beach and a taxi driver took me to Old Goa and Panjim for 1400 rupees. This price is from a government table and is used by all the taxi drivers. If Panjim was not involved the ride would have cost around 1000 rupees. If you negotiate you can get it cheaper than the table price. I don't remember exactly how long the ...

Since the trip on the Eurostar to London from Paris is 2:22 and back is slightly longer at 2:27 it is certainly feasible to make a day trip to Paris from London. The earliest train on August 1, for example is at 07:13, arriving at 08:40; and the last return trip from London to Paris leaves at 20:55, getting to Paris at 00:17. Tickets on the Eurostar aren't ...

I contacted Changi Airport's twitter account with the same question, and here is their response: Hi. If you join the free Singapore tour, you will have to adhere to clear and re-enter immigration as a tour group. Hope this clarify. Thanks. So the answer is NO. You must be with the tour from start to finish, including the return to the airport. ...

There is a cable-car going up to Niesen Mountain. As the Wikipedia article says, it is one of the longest cable-cars in Europe. An overview about the prices is available on the official homepage. You should look for the station at the top of the mountain which is called Nielsen Kulm. The price is around 53 CHF for a return ticket if you don't have any ...

I'll try to answer on the assumption that you're asking mostly about the relative practicality of a day trip, rather than asking for a sort of value judgment on the merits of an overnight. You can see a number of popular tourist destinations on a day trip to Kamakura from Tokyo. Additionally, it's a somewhat sleepy city that, in comparison to much of Tokyo ...

Your question is old but this answer might be useful to other users. Is it possible to visit Old Goa (for a day trip) from one of the beach resorts? How long would a taxi drive take and how much would it cost? ---> hooray has answered these questions. Or is it better to spend a night or two in Panaju, and then move to the beach? ----> Instead stay ...

It is possible. You can go by train. The trip on a direct train takes 3h40. Schedules and prices can be fond on the SBB website. You can arrive Milan between 10:30 AM and 11:00 AM, stay until more or less 6:30 PM and be back in Zurich around 11:00 PM. The lowest price I found was 125 CHF. If possible, i.e. if your package allows this, I would already go ...

Given I've heard of snow on the ground there in April, it could be very cold. However, I'll describe what we did, and you can adapt it based on the conditions when you arrive. First thing was to enter the park (driving) before sunrise. This gave us a chance to park, get our gear together, and race down to Mather Point for a spectacular view of sunrise. ...

Driving to Lake Lucerne have a look and go on to reach the Grimsel Pass. I like doing this by car or motorbike. Another day trip would be Rhine Falls near Schaffhausen, which is the largest plain waterfall in Europe.

Is it possible to make a day trip from around 10-11am from Manchester to Sheffield and return to Manchester (hotel near the airport by 11pm or 12am? Manchester to sheffield and back on a day by train is easilly doable. Heck I know someone who does it as a daily commute. Most of the time there are two fast trains per hour between Manchester Picadilly and ...

Yes. I work in Copenhagen and have colleagues living in (and commuting from) both Odense, Helsingør and Malmø. Odense is (by far) the furthest away, and that is only 1½ hour by train (in the worst case).

Assuming that they layover is actually in Keflavik airport (which it almost certainly is; Reykjavik itself just has domestic flights, and a few connections to neighboring locations in the North Atlantic): Yes, you can leave the airport during your layover. Since your destination is Finland, and both of Iceland and Finland are in the Schengen area, you'd be ...

None of the Trappist breweries lies on the way between Brussels and Ghent. And none of the Trappist breweries is really easily reached by public transport. Most often public transport brings you somewhere more or less nearby and then you still have to do a substantial walk. Be aware that taking a bus in Belgium (outside bigger cities) can be quite ...

As far as I can tell the second-last train to Bangalore from Mysore leaves at 8:30 PM (Mysore-Chennai Kaveri Express #16221, ~3 hours). The palace itself closes at 5:30 PM. The illumination timings are only on weekends and public holidays, and begin at 7 PM (and end at 7:30 on Saturday and 8 on Sunday anyway). That should leave you plenty of time to reach ...

I've been unable to find anything that is definitively less than 20 people, but there are a few promising options. Day trips between Boston and New York typically leave around 7 a.m. and bring you back to your starting city around anywhere between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. (that's scheduled only - do expect delays due to traffic and construction, as the entire ...

I'd suggest you give some consideration to visiting the Loire Valley. Depending on your exact definition of Castle or Châteaux, the number there varies, but it's in the 25-50 range! The best way to get to the Loire from Paris is probably to head to Gare Montparnasse and hop on a TGV. It takes about an hour to Tours, or about 1.5 hours to Angers, which are ...

It is not possible to climb Mt. Kenya in one day. The usual route is 3days. Also cars are not allowed in the whole park. What you could do is driving to the entrance and than walk to one of the huts at, let's say 3500meters. So it is definitely a several day long trip... But it's worth it. I went to Mt. Kenya from Sandai Farm. They organizided everything. ...

Difficult. You're probably going to want to spend a night. In which case you could take a car. IF you wanted to take the train, the service is the Queensland Rail Tilt Train. However, the earliest departure north is 11.55am, and you won't reach Bundaberg until 3.30pm. Coming back, depending on the day, you could be back in the morning if you get the ...

Doing Zurich to Milan in a day is totally doable, if it's worth it it's up to you. From Trenitalia site you can check the train availabilty. I looked Zurigo to Milano Centrale and the first train leaves at 07:09am and arrives in Milano at 10:50am, it costs 71€. The last train leaves from Milano Centrale at 19:10 and arrives in Zurigo at 23:21, it costs the ...

You have to take a train from Munich to Garmisch-Partenkirchen, and from there the rack railway to the Zugspitze. The journey takes almost three hours and the trains from Munich to Garmisch run hourly. Thus it is possible to do a round trip from Munich in one day. Here are some recommended schedules: The round trip from Munich to the Zugspitze costs 59 EUR ...
