Whether you choose to explore the city on foot or hop on a London red bus crisscrossing the capital, you're in for an exhilarating adventure.

  3. Day 3 London – Paris (2 Nights)

    This morning meet your Travel Director and fellow travelling companions to board your coach and set off from London. Your journey to the continent begins today. Travelling south through the pretty Kent countryside to Dover. Board your ferry to Calais and leave the chalky White Cliffs behind. Arriving in Paris, you'll have time to explore the 'City of Lights' on your own. The French capital glows bright both day and night, but consider an Optional Experience on the Seine at this evening to make your introduction even more special.

    meals Breakfast
    hotel Novotel Porte d'Orléans
  4. Day 4 Paris sightseeing and free time

    Put the joy in joie de vivre when you embark on a full day to delve into the highlights of Paris. Your sightseeing tour conducted by your Travel Director will take you past the Champs-Élysées, the Arc de Triomphe and the 'Iron Lady' herself, the Eiffel Tower. Relish the afternoon to do as you please. That could mean channelling your inner Parisian and sitting in a leafy park with a baguette and some cheese and wine. Consider an optional tour with a Local Specialist to explore the cobbled streets of Montmartre. Tonight, colourful Can-Can girls will entice you with their remarkable outfits should you choose to join an Optional Experience cabaret show.

On your journey south, the soul-stirring landscapes of the Italian lakes stretch ahead as you venture to Venice, the 'Queen of the Adriatic'. The Winged Lion of St. Mark stands guard over the city. There’s no better way to see the sights than gliding gracefully through its canals on a gondola – an Optional Experience that captures the essence of Venice like none other.

Stand in the centre of the square and capture the historic panorama which Napoleon once called 'the drawing room of Europe'. The exquisite art of glassblowing for which Venice is justifiably famous follows next. You’ll see master craftsmen engaged in the centuries-old craft at a MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experience. Consider an opportunity to visit the colourful fisherman’s island of Burano for an optional meal with drinks or spend the afternoon exploring Venice on your own before heading to Florence.

The dome of St. Peter’s Basilica looms over the expansive St. Peter’s Square – the impressive backdrop for time spent learning about the world’s smallest country. See Michelangelo’s mournful Pietà up close and consider an Optional Experience that will reveal the artistry and heritage of the famous Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums.

Booking is fast and efficient in one afternoon. I would recommend to my friends. The follow up emails to do different steps are also good.

The first two days in London, there is no guide and I was told to be on my own. This was a shock to me as a first time visitor from US to England, because I didn't know any thing and I was scared. If I wanted to be on my own, I don't have to sign up your tour group. The rest of the days were guided by an excellent guide. So I was happy and relaxed.

Our travel specialist booked our flights for us, in addition to our trip. For us being new to traveling internationally, we didn't know what questions to ask. We wish we would have known to reserve tickets/times at various places like The London Eye, The Louvre, St. Mark's Basillica, etc. Those are some things we would have liked to do while there, but were unable to get into any of them.
Vacation
We had a wonderful time exploring Europe. However, we didn't know about reservations for places like Buckingham Palace, London Eye, Eiffel Tower, The Louvre, etc, so we missed out on all of those experiences. The optional excursion to Burano was our favorite experience of the entire trip! Second favorite was going up the mountain in Lucerne!

For my first experience and trip to Europe, I was very satisfied and impressed with how GET made it so much easier to plan, reserve and receive all documents needed before departing on the trip. Every person I spoke to was very helpful, thoughtful & knowledgeable even whenever a question came up during the planning phase. Our travel director, Brent Cooper and motorcoach driver Pio were the best. Very hospitable, attentive to everyone and kept us all safe & sound while traveling in Europe by motorcoach. Overall, it was a great, adventurous and wonderful trip and YES, God-willing, we plan to book sometime in the near future.
