London + Paris Tour

May 7 - 15, 2018

London Overview
The crown jewels, Buckingham Palace, Camden Market…in London, history collides with art, fashion, food, and good British ale. A perfect day is different for everyone: culture aficionados shouldn't miss the Tate Modern and the Royal Opera House. If you love fashion, Oxford Street has shopping galore. For foodies, cream tea at Harrod’s or crispy fish from a proper chippy offers classic London flavor. Music and book buffs will love seeing Abbey Road and the Sherlock Holmes Museum (at 221B Baker Street, of course).

Paris Overview
Now you're in Paris!  Time to people watch and sip on your favorite champagne, vino or cappuccino at a nearby sidewalk café, after a day of strolling along the Seine and marveling at icons like the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe.  The perfect Paris experience combines leisure and liveliness, with enough time to savor both an exquisite meal and exhibits at the Louvre.
