There are many travel agencies and tour operators arranging holidays to France, some of them specializes in different sectors, like for instance culture holidays, beach holidays, city tour packages etc., all at different price levels accommodating your vacation plans and catering for different budgets and tastes.
Although it is absolutely possible to arrange your own visit to France, a cheaper and sometimes better option is to go on a package tour, or to get a travel agency to plan and book the trip for you.
If you book a package tour, most things are arranged for you as part of the deal, the flight, hotels, meals and sightseeing trips are usually included in the package. You can find package tours in most price categories, from very cheap to very exclusive and expensive.
Cheap and medium priced package tours are very popular among holiday makers, not only because it is an easy way to arrange your holidays but also because the tour operator usually will have their own guide on your destination, who can help you to get around, and help you with any small problems you may have. For the less experienced traveler a package tour therefore is a good option to choose.
On a package tour you will often travel in a group together with other guests on the same tour. For some this is considered to be a disadvantage, for others the opposite. Also you may not always get precisely what you thought/hoped you would be getting.
