Spend a week in London and Paris in centrally-located hotels and accompanied by an expert Tour Director. After your arrival in London, enjoy a traditional dining experience combined with a relaxed night-time river cruise on the Thames. Guided sightseeing includes all the famous landmarks: the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Downing Street, Piccadilly Circus, and Buckingham Palace, and ends with the London Eye Champagne Experience—a ride on the world’s tallest observation wheel while you sip a glass of champagne. The rest of the time is free for independent activities. Then, hop aboard the high-speed Eurostar train and head for Paris. Start with a visit to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower for an initial view of this amazing city. Guided sightseeing next morning features a visit to Notre Dame Cathedral, then, ride the little train to Montmartre, the artist area, see Sacre Coeur Basilica and end up at the Place du Tertre. Enjoy a light lunch to try out soupe á l’oignon or the traditional crêpe. An entire day at leisure offers the possibility to visit the famous Louvre Museum or the Palace of Versailles, and a special farewell dinner is the best way to say Au Revoir, Paris.
