    • + Full Day Tour Leeds Castle Canterbury Cathedral And White Cliffs

      Heading out into the peaceful Kent countryside known as the 'Garden of England', we stop to visit Leeds Castle, rising like a jewel from its own lake. After time to explore the castle and its grounds, we depart for Canterbury Cathedral - the birthplace of English Christianity, but perhaps better known as the place where Thomas Becket was murdered in 1170. Then see Dover Castle, overlooking the English Channel, and the famous White Cliffs of Dover before returning to London at approx. 7 pm. This optional operates on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday only.

    • + Afternoon Tour Everything Royal During August and September you have the opportunity to discover and explore the world of Royalty. Be dazzled and amazed at the State Coach, used by Sovereigns when opening Parliament and other magical state occasions, when exploring the Royal Mews. And finally, enjoy a relaxed walking tour of Buckingham Palace, visiting the state rooms and throne rooms of this fully occupied working palace. This optional operates on Tuesday/Friday and Saturday during August and September only.

    • + Full Day Tour Windsor Stonehenge And Bath A fascinating day out to three of our national treasures, Windsor Castle, Stonehenge, and Georgian Bath. Windsor Castle has been the home to our Royal Family for over 900 years. Visit the magnificent State Apartments, still used today. Take a peek at Queen Mary's Dolls House. Explore the grounds and take in the atmosphere of St George's Chapel. Leaving the Royal town of Windsor we head even further back in time as we make our way to Stonehenge, where the famous monoliths have stood for over 4000 years. Our final stop is Bath on the river Avon - a town built by the Romans 2000 years ago. We return to London at approximately 8 pm.

    • + Evening Tour Jack The Ripper s Sinister London Fri Sat Sun April - September This evening we re-trace the footsteps of this infamous serial killer, through narrow alleyways, derelict corners and Victorian pubs, following a trail which some experts say leads to Queen Victoria herself!  Your guide will talk you through the suspects that sparked the biggest whodunnit of its time. You will also have the chance to see parts of London, in the shadow of the financial district, which have barely changed since Victorian times. This evening tour starts at 7pm and finishes at Trafalgar Square at 10pm.

    • + Morning Tour Windsor Express A drive through the English countryside to Windsor, with time to explore the castle or stroll through the narrow streets of the pretty town with its many quaint gift shops. Entrance to the castle grounds is included and you may visit the State Apartments (unless there is a member of the Royal family in residence) and St George's Chapel. This optional operates on Wednesday and Saturday only.

    • + Afternoon Tour City And Tower A tour of the old 'City of London', including a drive through the financial centre followed by a visit to St Paul's Cathedral. We then cross London Bridge and Tower Bridge to stop at the Tower of London for a guided tour and viewing of the Crown Jewels. NB: On occasion this tour may be operated by our sister company, Evan Evans.


    • + Le Grand Louvre The Louvre, the biggest and best known museum in the world, was once the palace of kings. Follow the expert guide through the sumptuous maze of galleries to see the main attractions including Leonardo da Vinci's masterpiece - the 'Mona Lisa' - and the State Apartments decorated in the style of Emperor Napoleon III.

    • + Dinner And Music In Montmartre We begin with a visit to Montmartre by mini-train and a guided tour of this delightful artists' quarter of Paris.

    • + Notre Dame Latin Quarter And Seine Cruise We begin by visiting the cornerstone of Gothic architecture in France built in 1163, the magnificent cathedral that lies at the heart of Paris, Notre Dame. Then some free time to have a bite to eat in the Latin Quarter, or perhaps try the famous Berthillon ice-cream - the best in France! The perfect way to discover Paris is with a relaxing cruise on the River Seine, as you sail gently by the wonders of France's capital, and learn about the buildings you are admiring. In the evening Paris is a city transformed - don't forget your camera!

    • + Moulin Rouge Cabaret And Dinner Dinner and cabaret, including wine and champagne, at the world famous Moulin Rouge – the original Paris cabaret – immortalized by the homonymous award-winning film and featuring 60 dancers and entertainers and over 1000 costumes!
