Overview

Two iconic European cities, one captivating cultural experience reflecting centuries of innovation, imagination and initiative as you discover such highlights as Big Ben, the Champs Élysées and a little joie de vivre

Delights of London & Paris also has winter departures; click here to see the Winter Season version of this tour!

Travel to Europe often requires an overnight flight. Please arrange for flights to arrive on or before Day 1.

  1. Embrace the pomp and pageantry of a city that combines the fascinating heritage of yesteryear with all the verve of a modern capital. Stroll through its leafy Royal Parks, shop up a storm in the West End or visit some of London's world-famous historic attractions or museums to gain a sense of a place that is certainly larger than life. This evening, join your Travel Director and fellow travelers for a Welcome Reception.

    meal(s):Welcome Reception
    hotel:Cumberland/Hard Rock
  2. This morning leave London and travel to Bath. Visit the Roman baths from which the city derives its name and enjoy an orientation of this World Heritage Site with its beautiful Georgian architecture. After free time for lunch, travel through the scenic countryside and stop at Stonehenge to visit the historic stone monoliths where pagans once worshipped. Later return to London and consider joining your Travel Director for dinner at a lively restaurant and a West End show.

    meal(s):Full Breakfast
  3. London's iconic sights take center stage today during a half-day introductory sightseeing tour with a Local Specialist. See Big Ben, the imposing Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace, before traveling to the town of Windsor with its vast Royal Castle, the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world. See the chapel where Prince Harry and Meghan were married. Spend the afternoon following in the footsteps of royalty. Explore over 900 years of royal history, amble through this historic market town or settle back at an authentic British riverside pub for delicious pub fare washed down with an ale.

    meal(s):Full Breakfast
  4. Enjoy a day at leisure to explore the captivating sights and sounds of London. Ask your Travel Director for recommendations on how to spend your last day in the city or join one of several Optional Experiences. Delve into centuries of history and admire exquisite royal jewels at the Tower of London, visit Covent Garden or take a leisurely cruise along the Thames River. Consider spending the afternoon shopping on Bond Street and in Knightsbridge.

    meal(s):Full Breakfast
  5. Departing London, we travel through the lush green Kent countryside to board our ferry in Dover, watching the impressive White Cliffs disappear into the distance as we cross to France for the next four days. We pass the bloody World War I battlefields of the Somme en route to Paris where we will spend four nights.

    meal(s):Buffet Breakfast
    hotel:Novotel Centre Tour Eiffel
  6. The City of Light shines brightly today as our Local Specialist takes us on a sightseeing tour of Paris. We'll view the grand Champs Élysées, Arc de Triomphe, Place de la Concorde and visit Notre Dame Cathedral before enjoying a walk through the Latin Quarter. Spend a free afternoon soaking up the sophistication of this beautiful city. Wander through Montmartre and admire the imposing white domes of Sacre Coeur, enjoy a light-hearted picnic in the pretty Tuileries gardens or pay a visit to da Vinci's Mona Lisa at one of the world's most visited museums, the Louvre. This evening we connect with locals and indulge in a first-hand encounter with Parisian culture during a Be My Guest dinner.

    meal(s):Buffet Breakfast, Dinner with Wine
  7. Join a Local Specialist today to explore the opulent Palace of Versailles—its splendor and beauty created to reflect the self-proclaimed majesty of King Louis XIV, the Sun King. See the exquisite sprawling gardens, the Hall of Mirrors with its impressive chandeliers and glinting mirrors and the quirky hamlet that Marie-Antoinette once used as a retreat from her royal lifestyle and to masquerade as a peasant. This evening we return to Paris to enjoy the city by night, or perhaps attend a colorful Parisian cabaret performance.

    meal(s):Buffet Breakfast
  8. Spend the day at leisure delving into the sophistication and glamour of Paris on your own terms. Sample delicious French cakes at a local pâtisserie, amble along the cobblestone lanes of Le Marais or journey into the macabre underground catacombs dating back to the 19th century. On our last evening together in Paris, we join our travel companions and Travel Director for a Farewell Dinner in the city.

    meal(s):Buffet Breakfast, Farewell Dinner
  9. After breakfast, we bid our newfound friends a fond farewell as our memorable vacation comes to a close. Transfers will arrive at Paris Charles De Gaulle Airport at 8 am and 10:30 am. Conditions apply.

    meal(s):Buffet Breakfast

Service rating : Everything went well from the time we booked then the service we received upon arrival at the airport and the hotel stays and tours and Trafalgar’s tour director was great. One issue with our arrival at the Tower hotel in London - we had to wait 4 hrs for our room to be ready. Since GET books our flights, please choose flights that will prevent this situation. After a long travel day, we wanted to rest soon after we arrived.
Response from Grand European Travel:
Thank you for your suggestions. We will certainly take them to heart and share them with our team. The standard check in time for any hotel is 3pm, although we are sometimes able to work with the hotels to have rooms available earlier. We do apologize this was not the case for you in London.

Service rating : My granddaughter and I both had a wonderful time on the London and Paris tour. If I were to voice any less than perfect aspects of the trip it would be just two things: 1. The optional tour of Monet's house and gardens was pretty crowded and it felt a bit rushed; and 2, I would have liked to have had a really top notch dinner at some point in Paris. The food was good but not great.
Vacation : It was a great trip all the way around and our tour guide, Anna, helped to make it especially memorable.

Service rating : The booking was fine but later, when we had some problems with my husband health, we didn't have any help with additional information to make a right decision about taking the tour. Booking agents referred us to the travel director who didn't bother to send an email in time about the tour, and was not available to address our issue. As result, my husband could not participate in many events we paid for. Our Travel director was very vague about directions during the trips, not correct about physical challenges we would have during those trips, and pushed extremely hard for optional excursions (she booked optional tours one after another with very little or no time between them, and left the impression that returning to the hotel after not optional excursion was annoying inconvenience for her). The quality of not optional excursions was not good sometimes. For example, our introduction to Paris was in 1 hour, during which we stopped to take photos near Eiffel Tower for almost 20 minutes but then didn't have time to drive by the Louvre and around it. On the other hand, Eve was trying to be friendly and funny but I felt that she was thinking about her/Trafalgar's interests more than ours and this did not leave a good impression. Regarding our hotels, in London, Cumberland Hotel had a good breakfast, but there was a bad odor in the room and the A/C was not working and one of two lifts was out of service. In Paris, Novotel Hotel was much better.
Response from Grand European Travel:
Thank you for your detailed feedback. We are sorry to hear that the trip was not what you had hoped for. All of our tours require a great deal of walking and some have very long days, which is why we note this in our brochures and on our website. However, we feel badly that the information you were looking for was not properly communicated. Please accept our apologies.

Response from Grand European Travel:
We are sorry to hear this. All of our trips require a great deal of walking. The leisurely classification refers to the number of nights spent in each city which is noted in our brochure and our website, but we apologize if this was not made clear to you.

Service rating : The service was quite good. The tour director and bus driver were excellent. I am not sure the $ value of the tour was what I had hoped for---there were numerous optional tours, some of which I think could/should have been included in the tour price. It got to be quite an expensive tour with all the extras thrown in.
Response from Grand European Travel:
Our optional experiences are designed to complement our itineraries and offer our guests flexibility to tailor their vacation to their own preferences. Our hope is to provide a well rounded, experience for all guests. Nonetheless we understand your concerns and we thank you for bring them to our attention.

Service rating : In my way of thinking, there were too many optional experiences versus included. I know due to the wedding things had to be changed but the schedule itself was ill prepared as far as I am concern.
Response from Grand European Travel:
Thank you for your honest feedback. The optional excursions are designed to enhance the overall experience of the trip or allow guests free time to do as they please. This is common with most Guided Vacation companies, but those who include them have a much higher total tour price. We hope that you enjoyed the trip overall.
Tuesday, June 5, 2018
Vacation : The rate was fine until you get to see that you had to spend more on options. Also paying ahead of time would have been better for a rate exchange. I did not care that the other excursions be it London or Paris had to be paid in pounds.

Service rating : The tour director was excellent. Our room at Hotel Cumberland is dirty. The shower door did not close and refrigerator had rust inside. Hotel lobby is not comfortable for waiting, no seating areas. The area is full of middle eastern people and we feared for our safety. Please do not use this hotel again.
Vacation : Except for the above, we enjoyed our vacation.

Service rating : Our tour guide was very good as was our coach driver. The hotel rooms were too small. It would be nice that you have two prices for each tour--one for the small room and one for a larger "upgraded" room. I did call GE Travel way ahead of time and asked for this. I was told I would have to wait until we arrived at each hotel and request a larger room if available.
Response from Grand European Travel:
We appreciate the time you took to share your experience. This trip has alot of activities and some of the days do have early starts in order to be able to see and do everything in the program. Many of European Hotels have smaller rooms compared to US standards and unfortunately we did not know in advance which rooms will be available during your trip. We do hope that this was a positive experience for you overall. Grand European Travel

Vacation : The tour followed a very rigorous daily schedule. I, personally, would have preferred that each day started at 9am or later. The regional meal included in London was just so so and the "dinner" that went with the show was very poor. The regional meal in Paris the first night was well selected. I felt that most of the optional excursions should have been included--just charge a bit more to include them. All in all, though, we got to see quite a bit in the time allowed.

  • U.S. citizens traveling to England and France must have a current passport valid for six months beyond the conclusion of their trip. You can find information on how to apply for a passport here, and how to renew a passport here. No visa is required for U.S. citizens entering France.

  • The currency in England is the Pound (£) and in France is the Euro (€). While it’s a good idea to bring some euros for when you first arrive in France, you’ll usually find a better exchange rate when you arrive in your destination.  The most convenient way to obtain cash is to use your ATM card at local banks. We recommend you also bring a valid credit card for purchases while you are traveling.  It is important that you inform your financial institutions of your travel plans before you leave home so they don’t flag your purchases as potentially fraudulent charges.

  • One of the most enjoyable parts of traveling is sampling the cuisine.  Restaurants around London serve specialties such as fish and chips, Yorkshire pudding, sausages, stilton cheese, and scones with clotted cream. Culinary experiences to not to miss include a traditional pub meal, afternoon tea, and full English breakfast. 

    The French have an ongoing love affair with food and wine. Meals are lovingly prepared and consumed leisurely through a bevy of appetizers and main courses, usually accompanied by a number of wines. Boeuf bourgignon (beef stew with wine, herbs and vegetables), coq au vin (chicken cooked with bacon in a white wine and herb sauce) and bouillabaisse (fish stew) are featured on many menus. Cheese lovers will not be disappointed with hundreds of varieties to choose from.  And no visit would be complete without a visit to a pâtisserie, with its delicate pastries you will definitely be tempted.

    Wine is the most popular drink in France and is consumed at both lunch and dinner. Coffee is generally served black, unless a café au lait or café crème (with milk) is requested. For a simple and inexpensive lunch or snack, stop by a local bakery or food cart for a baguette au jambon (ham sandwich), crêpes, or a savory buckwheat galette filled with melted gruyère cheese and mushrooms. Many restaurants also offer a simple three course menu at a reasonable price.

  • We suggest bringing a variety of lightweight clothing items that can be layered to save space in your suitcase and give you more options for how to dress. Keep in mind that your shoulders and knees should be covered while visiting religious sites. For more helpful information please refer to our Packing Tips & Packing List.

  • Restaurants in London often include a service charge of 12.5 percent, especially for large groups.  If service isn’t included, it’s customary to leave 10-15 percent of the bill.

    In France, a 15% service compris is included by law in the price of food and drink. Tipping in addition to this service charge is never expected, but always appreciated. If you’d like to leave something extra, keep in mind that even in the fanciest restaurants, people rarely tip more than 5-10%. A good rule of thumb is to leave an extra €1 for every €20 spent. Rather than adding gratuity to your credit card slip, leave coins in the tray where the check was presented to ensure that your waiter receives it.

    At the end of your guided vacation, it’s customary to offer your motor coach driver and Travel Director a gratuity. We recommend €3.00 per person/per day for your driver and €5.00 per person/per day for your Travel Director.  Recommended gratuity for a Local Host and Local Specialist is 1-2 euros per person, paid at the conclusion of each guided visit.  A convenient option is to prepay your tips before your departure.

  • Baggage on our trips is restricted to one large suitcase per person with dimensions not exceeding 30x19x10 inches and a maximum weight of 50 pounds. You are also permitted one piece of hand luggage, which should be small enough to fit under your coach seat or on the small overhead shelf compartment. Please note that luggage with an adjustable handle and wheels will not fit in the overhead compartment of the coach. Hotel porterage is included in your vacation.

  • You will need to be comfortable on your feet, walking and standing for up to three hours in various weather conditions.  All of our vacations involve walking, often on cobblestone and uneven surfaces in historic city centers.  In order to get the most out of your vacation you need to be able to comfortably walk 1-3 miles unassisted in one day, be in good condition and be able to keep pace with the group. 

    If you need any medications, it is important that you bring enough to last you the whole trip and keep them in your carry-on bag while you travel.

  • We highly recommend our optional Travel Protection Plan, which allows you to cancel for any reason up to 24 hours before departure. The plan also includes trip interruption, baggage loss or delay, and medical and emergency assistance. Click here for a summary of coverage details, terms and conditions.
