Day 2
LONDON | TOWER OF LONDON

Enter the world of the Tudor royals this morning as costumed interpreters lead you on a tour of the magnificent Hampton Court Palace, one of only two surviving palaces owned by King Henry VIII. Later, a genuine Cockney speaker regales you with rhyming slang over lunch in a cozy, traditional English pub, before an afternoon at leisure. More than just a castle of 22 towers, the Tower of London offers a fascinating window into the country’s storied past. This afternoon, explore this formal royal residence, prison and zoo, where you find soothsaying ravens, historic king’s armor and spectacular crown jewels. After dinner at a nearby restaurant, return to the Tower of London for an exclusive opportunity alongside its brightly clad Yeoman Warders (Beefeaters). You’ll be among the few they select to join them in securing the fortress for the night, all part of the Tower’s timeless Ceremony of the Keys.

Day 3
LONDON | LIFE ALONG THE THAMES

Begin the day at the top of the city, soaring high on the London Eye, with spectacular panoramas in every direction. Look forward to thrills of a different kind on the river, when a “rib boat” whisks you at high speed up and down the Thames, offering a very different perspective of the city sights. With your feet back on dry land, stroll the Borough Markets and sample some of the many freshly made items produced here. Then, visit the reconstructed Globe Theatre of Shakespeare, where you learn about Elizabethan society, dress up as a character from a Shakespeare play and witness artful demonstrations of sword fighting on stage.

Day 4
PARIS, FRANCE | SPEEDING TO THE CITY OF LIGHT

Today, board the Eurostar train, which descends 250 feet below the water in the Channel Tunnel and whisks you swiftly to Paris. More than 2,000 years old, Paris is at once timeless and grand with its architectural icons, intimate and charming with its community markets, and entirely fashion-forward with its world-famous style. Upon arrival, discover the City of Light’s most recognizable sights, including Notre Dame Cathedral and the imposing Arc de Triomphe.

The Peninsula Paris
Meals: Breakfast, Dinner
Day 5
PARIS | INSIDE THE LOUVRE

Save room after breakfast for a visit to a traditional Parisian boulangerie, joining its bakers for a Family Foodie Experience and a lesson in the art of making buttery croissants. Paris’s most famous museum, the Musée du Louvre, showcases 35,000 works of art by masters like Michelangelo, Rembrandt and Da Vinci. Explore this palatial museum later, joining an expert guide on the hunt for the Louvre’s most remarkable works of art, including the mesmerizing Mona Lisa. The rest of your day is at leisure to discover more of the city as a family.

The Peninsula Paris
Meals: Breakfast
Day 6
MONTMARTRE | FASHIONABLE ARTISTS’ QUARTER

This morning begins with a guided walk through the markets of Saint-Germain-des-Pres, famous for its many cafés and bookstores. After lunch, Ride Like a Local when you continue by train on the Paris Metro, as many Parisians do, followed by a funicular ride to the charming Montmartre District. First to catch your eye may be the hilltop Basilique du Sacré-Coeur de Montmartre, erected in 1875 in the wake of the Franco-Prussian War and a beautiful symbol of the age-old struggle between conservatives and radicals. Stroll the winding back streets of Paris’s steepest quarter, passing hawkers, buskers and colorful storefronts. Your family also experiences Montmartre’s deep legacy of creativity as part of a special workshop, joining a local artist for a lesson in sketching. This evening, join your Resident Tour Director and fellow guests for a celebratory farewell dinner.

2 Days from $1,495

This independent Tailor Made extension is not accompanied by a Resident Tour Director.

Day 1
Versailles | Magnificent Palace

After breakfast, meet your guide to travel by private vehicle to the Palace of Versailles, located just outside the city. Originally a royal hunting lodge, the palace became a symbol of the glory and excesses of King Louis XIV’s reign and was the epicenter of political power in France at the time. The famous Hall of Mirrors is over 200 feet long, stretching the length of the west façade. It was here that the 1919 Treaty of Versailles was ratified, ending World War I. After exploring the palace, take a stroll through the formal, ornamental gardens, which span nearly 2,000 acres. Take note of the many fountains, and see the Grand Canal that stretches into the distance. Return to your hotel, where the remainder of the day is at leisure.
