Day by Day Itinerary
Day 1 London: Arrival

After check-in, take time to refresh and get settled in, enjoying the rest of the day at your leisure. You might stretch your legs with a walk to the grand royal residence, through Hyde Park, or simply wander the streets to do some shopping and some people-watching before enjoying a meal in one of the area’s many cozy pubs, cafes, and restaurants.
Day 2 London: Ultimate London Tour
Enjoy a highlight on your itinerary with a classic tour in one of the city’s famous black cabs. It’s led by your own private cabby with local experience ensuring you’ll see all the top sights and more unique spots. It can be personalized to your interests, but some of the must-sees include Westminster Abbey, the site of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding, and the place where the country’s kings and queens have been crowned and buried for nearly 2,000 years. Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament are just a few of the others and you’ll enjoy lunch in a more than 300-year-old pub.
Day 3 London: Half-Day Windsor Tour
Head out on a four-hour tour with your own driver/vehicle to visit 11th-century Windsor Castle, just over 20 miles west of London. The transfer service allows you to explore the royal residence on your own which is the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world. This is where Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wed, and her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II often spent her weekends and is now buried in King George VI Memorial Chapel . Take a self-guided audio tour to explore the historic State Apartments that date to the early 19th century, still in use by the Royal Family today. After returning to your London hotel, the remainder of the day is at your leisure.
Day 4 Paris: Transfer from London
It’s time to begin the second half of your trip by transferring to Paris. Your private driver will meet you at your London hotel, providing transfer to the London St-Pancras Station where you’ll take the Eurostar London train to Paris. Upon arrival into the City of Lights, you’ll be welcomed by another driver for private transfer to your hotel in the Saint-Germaine neighborhood of Paris, known for its many designer boutiques like Gucci and Louis Vuitton. Enjoy the rest of the day on your own, with many cafes and restaurants steps away, you’re perfectly situated for enjoying a fabulous Parisian meal alongside fine French wine.
Day 5 Paris: Private Half-Day Walking Tour
Today you’ll discover all of the Paris highlights on a half-day private tour with your own guide. Tell your guide what interests you most and he’ll bring you there while using local insight to reveal other remarkable sights for the complete Parisian experience. Starting from your hotel, you’ll head out with a metro card which will allow you to make the most of your time in this vast city in, a more efficient, faster way to get around than traveling by car. You’ll see landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, Ile de la Cité, and Notre Dame Cathedral, traveling the Avenue des Champs-Elysees to marvel at the Arc de Triomphe and more. Montmartre and the white-domed Sacre Coeur at its summit is really a must, with the basilica offering a spectacular view over the city. It’s the perfect place to finish your tour before taking the rest of the day to enjoy the French capital at your leisure. Before you take off on your own, your guide can provide local restaurant recommendations for lunch.
Day 6 Paris at leisure
Now that you’ve gotten your bearings, today is the perfect day to enjoy Paris on your own. After several days of touring, you might be ready for more relaxed exploring. The city’s famous food markets are ideal, from the historic Marche des Enfants Rouges in Le Marais to the pedestrianized Rue Montorgueil with fragrant cheese shops, aromatic bakeries, rotisseries, and flower vendors. Alternatively, you can choose to take our private half-day tour of the world-renowned Louvre Art Museum with its incredible masterpieces like Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa and the massive 20′ x 33′ Coronation of Napoleon completed in 1807 by Jaques-Louis David, Napoleon’s official painter depicting his coronation at Notre-Dame de Paris.
