Your afternoon and evening are free to explore London with your included Oyster Card, a public transportation pass.
Day 3: Tower of London & Windsor Castle
Visit the Tower of London and experience an early entry inside the walls to see the opening ceremony, where the main gates are unlocked by the Chief Yeoman Warder or one of his fellow warders, using the Queen’s key on a huge iron ring. Learn about the history of the Tower, which was founded in 1066 as part of the Norman Conquest of England, and view the Crown Jewels. Go to Windsor and enjoy lunch in the city before visiting Windsor Castle, one of the Queen’s official residences. You will have time to independently explore the largest inhabited castle in the world, including the State Apartments and St George’s Chapel. The evening is free to explore and dine on your own.
Day 4: Eurostar to Paris & Seine River Cruise
Board the Eurostar train in London and travel through the tunnel deep under the English Channel on your way to Paris. Enjoy a panoramic drive down the monument-lined boulevards of this romantic city this afternoon. See the Eiffel Tower before boarding your early evening Seine River cruise, floating under lamp-lit bridges and past some of Paris’s most beloved sights along the banks.
Day 5: Louvre & Iconic Paris
Visit the Louvre Museum, the world’s largest, housed in a Paris landmark built in the late 12th century as a fortress, then rebuilt as a grand palace in the 1600’s. Home to great works of Greek and Roman antiquity, medieval masterpieces, and the Mona Lisa, you’ll discover some of these gems on a guided tour. Stop for a photo of the iconic Gothic cathedral, Notre Dame. While the roof was recently damaged by fire, the flying buttresses, rose windows and most of the intriguing gargoyles remained safe. Try a sweet French macaron before returning to your hotel. The rest of the day is free to explore and dine independently.
