First time visitors and repeat travelers alike will enjoy this tour that brings together two of Europe's most enticing cities: London and Paris.
Begin with four nights in London. During flexible private touring, discover London's discreet charms—heritage architecture, private gardens, and exclusive boutiques. Trace London's history at the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, Fleet Street and Lincoln's Inn Fields. Visit some of the world's great museums, such as the Victoria and Albert Museum, British Museum, Tate Modern, and National Gallery, or smaller museums such as the Sir John Soane Museum, the Freud Museum, Courtauld Gallery or the William Morris Gallery. Perhaps take a ride on the London Eye followed by a visit to the wonderful Borough Market. Stroll through the city's elegant parks, or walk along narrow streets lined with mews homes. Have a pint in a cozy pub, and sample traditional and "new" British cuisine at fine restaurants. Visit some of our favorite shops, such as Liberty, Harrod's and Fortnum & Mason. A day will be spent out of London at the destination of your choice. Options include Windsor Castle, Highclere Castle, Bath, Stonehenge, Oxford, the Cotswolds, a VIP tour at the Harry Potter Studios London, or lunch at a gourmet manor home such as Cliveden or Le Manoir aux Quats Saison.
After London, transfer to Paris by high-speed Eurostar train. Experience the architectural beauty, artistic richness and culinary savoir-faire of Paris. With your own guide and driver, tour the very best of the cityaccording to your interests. First-time visitors may wish to tour major attractions such as Notre Dame Cathedral, Sainte-Chapelle, the Eiffel Tower, the Luxembourg and Tuileries Gardens, and major museums such as the Louvre and the Musee d'Orsay. Other possibilities include an epicurean tour of Paris; walking tours through the exclusive residential streets on Ile St-Louis, the old Jewish quarter in the Marais, the former art colony of Montmartre, the medieval streets of the Latin Quarter, or to Left Bank cafes made famous by poets and philosophers; visiting museums such as the Centre Pompidou, the Rodin Museum, or Musee de l’Orangerie; and shopping for antiques or haute couture.
