Paris & London
Explore Europe’s two most popular cities with ease on this locally-hosted getaway.
Charles Dickens: A Tale of Two Cities. George Orwell: Down and Out in Paris and London. You: My Wonderful Vacation to Paris & London. Yes, Paris & London are not just perfect settings for novels, but also for a vacation filled with fun, adventure, and memories. On this 7-day package, all you have to do is show up; we’ve arranged everything else for you: hotel reservations, sightseeing, transportation between cities, daily breakfast, and transfers to/from the train stations. To help you get the most out of your vacation, your Local Host is there for you in both cities—to answer your questions, to let you in on little-known secrets, and to help make sure your vacation is everything you want it to be.
Your vacation starts in Paris, where you will be met by your Local Host, who will welcome you to the city and give you a Paris destination guide, so you can get to know the city immediately. Your sightseeing the next day with a local expert includes the iconic Notre Dame Cathedral, where you’ll see its 13th-century, stained-glass windows, and the Louvre, home of Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa (Louvre replaced with Seine cruise on Tuesdays). Plus, you’ll receive VIP access and skip the lines, and you’ll be escorted throughout both—ensuring you won’t get home and realize you missed an important part of the museum or church. In London, your exclusive sightseeing tour with a local expert includes VIP access to St. Paul’s Cathedral, with its deep history and famous dome. Get the inside story and learn its fascinating history before heading to Buckingham Palace to see the Changing of the Guard. In both cities, you’ll have a free day to explore on your own and to take optional excursions. Perhaps take a romantic dinner cruise on the Seine River in Paris and enjoy a pre-theater dinner and musical in London’s West End. Maybe visit the British Museum in London and the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. With these two cities, the opportunities are endless, and your Local Host in each city can help you personalize your vacation perfectly for you!
And that’s not all...this vacation also includes a thrilling ride on the high-speed Eurostar train through the Chunnel, an engineering marvel, and transfers to/from the train stations to your hotels.
