  • Description: Buckingham Palace, Windsor Castle, Arc de Triomphe and fabulous bird's eye views from the London Eye and Eiffel Tower – London, Windsor and Paris are favourites for families. It's insider moments like… being lucky enough to see the colourful spectacle of the Changing of the Guards at Buckingham Palace, and being first to hear Big Ben toll as you all stride towards the Houses of Parliament. Walking through the corridors of history at Windsor Castle, you see why this is one of the Queen's favourite residences. And after speeding under the English Channel, you've time to relax to relax in Paris. Your next day begins at the top of the Eiffel Tower with our Local Expert, who shows you the city's famous sights.

    • + Seine Cruise And Paris By Night Paris at night is a city transformed. Enjoy this superb 'city of light' as we take a leisurely cruise on the popular river boats under the bridges of Paris, admiring the wonderful buildings which adorn the banks of the River Seine. Afterwards, as we drive through this amazing city, we stop at some vantage points for you to capture these fascinating sights on camera. (In summer, this trip may take place before sunset).

    • + 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. After enjoying a four-course meal (drinks included)in a traditional Paris restaurant with live music we will have time to visit the charming main square, Place du Tertre, to see the artists stalls as well as the beautiful Basilica of Sacre Coeur, not to mention some shopping!

    • + Giverny House And Gardens Of Claude Monet Visit this charming French house, with its spectacular gardens, the former home of the greatest Impressionist painter, Claude Monet, and inspiration for his magnificent waterlily paintings. Our coach will drive us to the village of Giverny where we will enjoy a tour of this delightful house and garden with its internationally famous Japanese bridge.

    • + Versailles - The Palace Gardens And Fountains We leave the bustle of the city for the splendour of Versailles. Created by the Sun King Louis XIV, the palace became the envy of every other European ruler. Our guide takes us through the State apartments, including the famous Hall of Mirrors. Afterwards, take a stroll through the symmetrical tree-lined gardens while the fountains play. (N.B: This optional is subject to availability.)
