France Explorer

for Cubs and Scouts

Discover Paris

Exploring Paris is a journey of discovery; the Louvre, the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the sights, sounds and smells of a bustling French market. Cubs and Scouts experience French culture in an authentic environment - and adding a day at Disneyland ® Paris is sure to get them interested the trip!

We tailor-make your itinerary to meet the requirements of your group, and to get the most of your time away, we provide a PGL Tour Leader who accompanies you throughout your trip. They’re there to support you and ensure every day runs smoothly – it’s that little extra reassurance you need when taking your Cubs or Scouts abroad.
