Highlights

DAYS 1-3 – LONDON
After meeting your guide in London, your first amazing experience will actually be outside the city. In the wide-open Salisbury Plain, your family will visit Stonehenge after it’s closed to the public…and watch the sunset while you wander amid the megaliths. You widest views of the city come on from the top of the towering London Eye wheel, and at street-level, a guided walk will take you to iconic sites like Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and St. Paul’s Cathedral. After a guided visit to the Tower of London, you’ll walk Tower Bridge and sit down to a Harry Potter-style afternoon tea.
 
DAYS 4-7 – PARIS
A fast morning train ride through the Chunnel under the English Channel will deliver you to Paris. There, your guide will arrange a skip-the-line visit to the Louvre Museum to see the Mona Lisa. One evening, you’ll watch the City of Light light up from the deck of a boat on the Seine. Visits to Saint Chapelle Cathedral are musts, not to mention a walk through a neighborhood market and a visit to a chocolatier. And you’ll get a fun and unique look at the Palace of Versailles, starting with a bike ride through the 2,000-acre gardens filled with flowers, fountains
