Geneva with Mont Blanc, Paris & London
About Geneva, Switzerland
According to one of the world’s most famous authors, Charles Dickens, “What an immense impression Paris made upon me. It is the most extraordinary place in the world!" At Monograms, we couldn’t agree more, but we also think Geneva & London are equally extraordinary. That’s why we’ve created a package that takes you to these extraordinary places in one vacation! And that’s not all…we’ll also take you to Mont Blanc, the highest peak in Western Europe. In fact, on this 10-day vacation , we’ve arranged your hotel reservations in each city, daily breakfast, sightseeing, connection between cities, and transfers to/from the train stations. To help you get the most out of your vacation and to feel at home, we’ve also arranged the services of a Monograms Local Host®, an insider from each city who knows the cities’ secrets and will answer questions, give you suggestions, help arrange your activities, and be on hand as your “friend in the city.”In each city—Geneva, Paris, & London—you’ll be met upon arrival to your hotel by a Local Host. You’ll be given a set of materials to familiarize you with the cities and to help personalize your trip. In each city, we’ve also arranged guided sightseeing with an expert local guide, someone who will share inside stories as well as the fascinating history of the attractions you’ll see. Your sightseeing in Geneva features the Jet d’Eau, Europe’s tallest water fountain situated where Lake Geneva empties into the Rhône River; the Flower Clock, a masterpiece of technology and floral art; and an inside visit to St. Peter’s Cathedral, the Romanesque–Gothic church best known for John Calvin’s sermons during the mid-16th century.A highlight of your vacation is an excursion from Geneva to Chamonix & Mont Blanc, Western Europe’s highest peak. You’ll travel across the Swiss–French border to Chamonix, where the first Winter Olympics were held. We’ve arranged for you to take the cable car to the top of Mont Blanc, where you’ll witness breathtaking scenery of the Alps and the Chamonix Valley. Just wait until you experience it!In Paris, we’ve scouted out the best place to take photos of the Eiffel Tower, and we’ll take you there. Your local expert will also take you inside Notre Dame Cathedral, dating back to 1163, where you’ll admire its 13th-century, stained-glass window. We’ll also take you inside the Louvre, the world’s most visited museum, where you’ll see amazing treasures such as da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. And never fear…we’ve secured VIP access for you, which means you get to bypass the lines and spend your time inside the Louvre with all of its works of art rather than outside in line. It’s just another added feature from Monograms! In London, you’ll see the must-see attractions, such as St. Paul’s Cathedral, Big Ben, and Westminster Abbey. We’ll also take you to the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace. In both London and Paris, you’ll also have a full day to explore on your own. You may want to take a ride on the London Eye or enjoy a Seine River cruise, a beautiful way to experience Paris. Perhaps take an excursion to Windsor Castle, the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world; to mysterious Stonehenge outside of London; or to Claude Monet’s Giverny outside of Paris. London’s theater scene rivals that of Broadway, and your Local Host can help you get tickets to such shows as Wicked, Mama Mia, and more.In addition to all of this, your package also includes transportation between cities. From Geneva to Paris, we’ve arranged for you to travel first-class on the high-speed TGV train. You’ll experience an engineering marvel, the Chunnel, as you take the Eurostar train from Paris to London. We’ll even take you from/to your hotels to/from the train stations and make sure you get on the correct train! That way, your only job is to sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride—just like the rest of your vacation. It’s a vacation of a lifetime!
