    Itinerary at a Glance

    Welcome to London! Your private driver will escort you to your city center hotel. The rest of the day is for you to relax and settle in at leisure.


    Your private guide will meet you after breakfast for a half day sightseeing tour. Start your day with a visit to the famous Borough Market, before crossing the Millennium Bridge to discover St. Paul's Cathedral. Finish your tour in the vibrant Covent Garden, a must-see destination for anyone who enjoys theater, restaurants, culture and shopping. This area is rich in museums, including the Royal Academy of Arts and the National Gallery, both of which deserve a visit.  

    Continue your day with Afternoon Tea at Fortnum & Mason, an upmarket department store in Piccadilly, which has been supplying the Royal Family with products for over 300 years. Rest of the afternoon at leisure.


    Today you will explore the Tower of London, where your private Yeoman will show you the luxurious Crown Jewels and tell you all about the historic significance of ravens. Then it's time for a romantic horse-drawn carriage ride through London's Royal Parks and historic streets. Your professional coachman will leave you to enjoy a picnic in the beautiful Hyde Park, overlooking the lake. Rest of the afternoon at leisure. 


    Take the Eurostar Train, which will arrive in Paris in a little over 2 hours. After check-in at your hotel, join a croissant baking class, where you will learn the secrets of preparing French pastry from the dough, the rolling and the baking. After this class, you will undoubtedly be able to make home-made croissants worthy of a Parisian Bakery for all your friends and family back home! 

    Rest of the afternoon at leisure.


    After breakfast, your local guide will meet you at your hotel for a city sightseeing tour of Paris. 

    Paris was born on Ile de la Cite, where Notre Dame Cathedral now stands. This will also be the starting point of your discovery of Paris, standing on the brass compass marking the 'point 0' of all roads in France. After you visit the famous cathedral, you will uncover Medieval Paris with a stroll through the enchanting Marais district, its narrow cobbled streets and the elegant 17th century Place des Vosges. Then it's time for a café au lait and delicious French macaroons, followed by a visit to the eclectic Orsay Museum.


    Paris is a cradle of culture, so each and every monument here deserves a visit. Today you will explore the Montmartre area and climb to the Sacre Coeur Basilica. With its beaming white color and unique, romantic style, the Basilica is a must-see for everyone traveling to Paris. The views from the top are spectacular. You will have the entire Paris at your feet.

    In the afternoon, continue with a visit to the famous Eiffel Tower. From the very moment you start climbing the tower, you feel as you've embarked on a fantastic journey, where emotions are heightened as you go further up.


    Your day will take you to the Palace of Versailles, the official residence of the Kings of France from 1682 to 1790. It first was a hunting lodge in 1624, but during the reign of King Louis XIV it expanded to become the vast palace which we admire today. Versailles is divided into 4 different spaces - the Palace, the Garden, The Grand Trianon and Marie Antoinette's Estate. One can easily spend a full day here, admiring the 700 golden rooms of the palace, each and every one filled with different pieces of art, and strolling through the beautiful royal gardens. 

    Return to Paris in the afternoon for a romantic cruise on the river Seine.


    After breakfast and check-out, you will be transferred to Paris Gare du Nord, where you will board the train to Cote D'Azur and the glamorous city of Cannes. Cannes is famed for its international film festival, celebrating its 71st anniversary in 2018. The Boulevard de la Croisette, curving along the coast, is lined with sandy beaches, upmarket boutiques and palatial hotels. The city is also home to the Palais des Festivals et des Congres, a modern building completed with a red carpet and Cannes' walk to fame - Allee des Stars.


    Your private driver will be taking you on a day trip to Monaco. On your way you will visit the old town of Nice, to admire the Promenade des Anglais. 

    In Monaco, spend time at the Exotic Gardens, visit the Royal Palace, where princess Grace has lived and the bay sprinkled with luxurious yachts. Then have a look at the exuberant Place du Casino, the epicenter of all things in Monte Carlo, designed by the same architect as the Opera in Paris. Return to Cannes and afternoon at leisure.

    Saint Tropez

    Today enjoy a Provencal escape with a day at leisure in Saint Tropez. Board a catamaran cruise in the morning, which will take you to the beautiful town of Saint Tropez, known worldwide for its authenticity. Spend the day in the sun at one of the most extravagant beaches in the area, sipping delicious cocktails and taking in the magical beauty of the French Riviera. Return to your hotel in Cannes, this time by air, with a short helicopter flight.


    Private transfer to airport and flight back home.
