You might dream of a romantic weekend with the hubby when you first think of Paris. But, after a Paris hen do, the only thing you'll be dreaming about is when you can head back there with the bride's tribe.
So, forget about being a romantic holiday destination and take the girls to Paris for a wild weekend of shopping, clubbing, partying and whatever else you want during your Paris hen do.
Famed for the Eiffel Tower, the Moulin Rouge, the Louvre and now incredible hen parties, you'll have everything you want in this world-famous chic capital city.
Pastry, stunning architecture, all-around beauty and delicious wine aside, Paris is an incredible city where you and the girls will have an incredible hen weekend. We are pretty sure it's a city everyone dreams about visiting at least once in their life and we can't think of a better time to visit then with your best friends on a hen weekend.
With an office in Paris and a true love for the city, plus years of experience, we know how to make your hen weekend in Paris even more amazing and memorable.
From sightseeing or cruising down the Sienne to strippers in your hotel room, Paris hen do activities are top-class and absolutely fabulous.
When it comes to sightseeing, we tend to opt for the no walking option with a Beer or Brunch Bike. The concept of the Beer Bike is very simple--pedalling and drinking with a spot of sightseeing through one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Perfect for your hen weekend in Paris. The Brunch Bike includes French pastries, Hot drinks, Juice & Smoothie, Sweet & savoury items and a mixed board.
If you and the girls prefer wine over beer, there is also our Drinks on the Seine activity, which will see you enjoy a private cruise down the Seine with a few bottles of wine.
Being the capital of France, Parisians know a thing or two about good wine and after a Wine Tasting session during your hen do, so will you. Wine tasting sessions are always a great addition to a hen weekend and this one in the heart of Paris will be no different.
If it's relaxation and chic activities you're after, there is a French Pastry Workshop, Cocktail Making Workshop, Spa Days, Massages, Photoshoots, a Beauty Party and chic dinners with fabulous views.
Just like how the French know good wine, food and Champagne, they know their nightlife and how to party too.
We have an office in Paris and they know their city's nightlife better than anyone. Luckily for us, they've shown us how to have an amazing night out in Paris.
In Bercy, near Gare d'Austerlitz you'll find hoards of great clubs playing all the dancefloor favourites. You'll find the majority of them in Cité de la Mode et du Design (City of Fashion and Design). Some of the most notable clubs include Café Oz, Wanderlust and Garage. if you walk a little further, you'll find a famous techno club called La Concrete, which is on a boat.
If bar hopping and guided bar crawls are what you're after, Bastille or Oberkamf will be a great starting point. The streets are laden with bars, crepe stands and restaurants. If you are in Oberkamf and fill like shots, you won't find better then Espit Chupitos. You can choose from hundreds of shots, but you choose by name and don't know what you're getting, which is part of the fun and appeal. More importantly, they are only €3 each.
Apart from being home to the Moulin Rouge, Pigalle is a vibrant and colourful area that's home to dozens of bars and clubs. None more important than the multi-level, multi-room party madhouse that is La Machine du Moulin Rouge.
Rue Princesse and Rue Saint Maur are what the French call Rues de la soif, which translates to drinking streets. We think we have said enough here!
The most famous street in Paris and known for its designer stores, the Champs Elysées is also a party hot spot with top clubs including Hobo, Duplex, Regine's and L'Arc, which is on the fancier side.
From a Bar Crawl with challenges to Club Entry and Drinks Packages, we can plan the perfect night out for your Paris hen weekend. Trust us, with local knowledge, local guides and a ton of experience, you can't have a better night out in Paris than what Maximise can organise for you.
If you are choosing to fly into Paris, you have the city's main airport Charles de Gaulle, as well as two smaller airports Orly Airport and Paris Beauvais-Tille Airport. You'll find plenty of daily flights from throughout the UK to both Charles de Gaulle and Orly Airport, however, flights are limited to Beauvais-Tille.
Once you arrive in Paris, skip the taxi queues and enjoy airport transfers with Maximise instead. Regardless of what airport you fly into, we can get you to your accommodation in the city centre with our airport transfers.
If you are taking the train to Paris, you'll be arriving at Gare du Nord. You can either book transfers with us or take public transport. For the metro, we recommend getting a Paris Visite Travel Pass. Valid for 1, 2 or 3 days, you'll have unlimited travel on all of the public transport in Paris. These are great if you plan on moving about and relying on public transport otherwise you can get a single one-way ticket starting at £1.65.
When it comes to the famous Eiffel Tour, the closest station is Champ de Mars (Tour Eiffel) on the train line RER C. Other Metro stations close to the Eiffel Tower include Ecole Militaire on Line 8 and Bir-Hakeim on Line 6. However, for the best view of the Eiffel Tower, get out at Trocadéro on Metro Line 6 or 9. It's on the opposite side of the Seine River but makes for some great views and photo opportunities.
For other great views and places you must visit during a hen weekend in Paris, don't go past Montmartre. Known as The Mountain Of Martyrs, this 130-metre high hill, is an incredibly beautiful and unique village within the city. Along with Sacré-Cœur and incredible views of the city, you'll find cobble-stoned streets buzzing with cafes, artist, street performers, restaurants and shops. Montmartre also connects to Pigalle, which is where you'll find the Moulin Rouge, sex shops and a ton of bars and restaurants.
Shopping. It's an important topic in a woman's life but even more so when it comes to a hen weekend in Paris. Unfortunately, most of us can't afford the designer stores on Champs Elysées so instead, you'll want to head to Rue de Rivoli and Forum des Halles. Also known as Châtelet Les Halles, Forum des Halles is a massive shopping centre in Paris.
