How do we get from the hotel to the tournament grounds?

It's easy to get around Paris thanks to the extensive rapid transit system, the Paris Métro. The Métropolitain serves a remarkable 303 stations, mostly underground. It's a famous symbol of the city, and it's how we get from the hotel to the grounds. It's an easy, 20-minute ride with no transfers; our hotel is only a five-minute walk from the nearest Métro stop. One of our tour hosts will escort guests to the tennis each day. Métro passes are included in your tour package. Private event transfers are available for an additional fee.

What if it rains?

Luckily, all four major tournaments have roofs as of 2020 now that the French joined the club! So if you have a ticket to Philippe-Chatrier, you’ll only have to wait a few minutes while they close the roof. Other courts will still be at the mercy of the weather, so some matches may be moved to the main show court or delayed. The red clay surface also permits play through light rain.

What time is Rafa playing next year?

Great question and one we receive often. The draw is only released a few days before the tournament, and the order of play is only published the evening before the match. So, if there’s a specific player you’d like to see, we can usually predict which tickets you’ll need to see him or her. However, we can't know the exact time and court until the day before the match.

Is airfare included?

Airfare is not included in the package pricing. We wrote a blog post on how to book your own flights, since it’s the easiest and cheapest way to get your airfare. But if you’d like us to help you with your flights, we’d be glad to do so.

Who will I meet at the Welcome Dinner?

You’ll meet lots of people. The welcome dinner is a great opportunity to get to know your fellow travelers; we’ve had many friendships (and even a few marriages) sparked on our tours. You may also meet a special tennis guest. Some of our past guests include top players Caroline Garcia, Reilly Opelka, and the Bryan Brothers, as well as Hall of Famers Tracy Austin, Fred Stolle, and many others. This is also a great time to connect with your tour hosts.

Is travel insurance available?

Travel insurance is an option and our invoices are recognized by providers. However, we recommend being very thorough in your understanding what they will and will not cover. Additionally, GSTT Trip Protection is available, which gives you the flexibility to cancel your trip for any reason up to two weeks before the event start date. Check out the full details of our Trip Protection in our Booking Policy.

What's the weather like in Paris?

The temperature in Paris is usually around 65–75ºF during the day and cooler at night. We suggest smart casual dress for most restaurants in Paris and the Roland-Garros itself. Make sure to pack sunglasses and summer clothing like dresses and shorts, but also a rain jacket and comfortable shoes for your walks to and around the grounds.
