Peer into Royal life at Windsor Castle… take no prisoners at the Tower of London… pedal through Royal Parks… catch a bird’s-eye view on a private London Eye capsule… and hide away in the British Secret Service’s former quarters. Then cross under the English Channel to Paris, where you’ll step into 17th-century opulence at Palace of Versailles… explore the Louvre on a scavenger hunt… see street artists at work in Montmartre. 

Day 1: Arrive London and take a tour by private double-decker bus

Tour begins: 3:00 PM, The Royal Horseguards.  Welcome to "merrie olde" England for the start of Tauck Bridges' fun and enriching London and Paris family vacation! A transfer is included from London's Heathrow Airport to The Royal Horseguards. Climb aboard one of London's signature double-decker buses for a private guided tour of this grand capital city, which you'll learn about on a four-night stay in the heart of it all at The Royal Horseguards, the former WWI-era headquarters of the British Secret Service. Get to know your fellow travelers at our welcome reception and dinner tonight.


Meals: D

Day 2: The Tower, the Thames by speedboat & the London Eye

Meet the Beefeaters who watch over the Tower of London and the famous ravens that live within its walls; see the Bloody Tower and the British Empire's priceless Crown Jewels. You'll explore more than history today as you embark on a thrilling speedboat adventure* along the River Thames... then ride 450 feet above the city in a glass pod – a private one, thanks to Tauck Bridges – on the celebrated London Eye, the world's highest observation wheel. Tonight's dinner is a Tauck Exclusive – a "progressive dinner" through fashionable Soho; explore historical sites and landmarks led by an expert foodie guide and enjoy food tastings at some of the best Soho restaurants where you'll meet the owners and hear their stories.


Meals: B, L, D

Day 3: Windsor Castle, bicycling & a West End show

The home of English kings and queens for over 900 years, stately Windsor Castle is still a residence of the British Royal Family – and you'll tour this castle "fit for a queen" (or a king) today. As your exciting Tauck Bridges family vacation continues this afternoon to London, join us on a bicycle ride* through the British capital's Royal Parks. After dinner on your own this evening, your family enjoys a special treat... a performance of a hit show in London’s West End Theatre District! 


Meals: B

Day 4: British Museum plus a London Spy Walk

Although two million years' worth of history and culture might be a little tough to see in one day, you'll get a taste of what the fascinating British Museum has to offer on a guided tour of this amazing place – housing the world's most comprehensive collection of art and artifacts, from maps to mummies and more, in nearly two-and-a-half miles' worth of galleries. Later, it’s spy versus spy on an afternoon "Spy Walk," where you'll become a secret agent and try to save the world... will you rescue the damsel in distress... and what about the white cat? Return to your London hotel – where real spies of the British Secret Service roamed the halls a century ago during World War I – for your family's final evening in London, spent as you please.


Meals: B, L

Day 5: Under the Channel by Eurostar to Paris

Say "Cheerio" to London as you ride aboard the high-speed Eurostar train to Paris. You'll travel under the English Channel through the engineering marvel known as the Channel Tunnel (unofficially called the "Chunnel") – arriving in Paris before you know it. Enjoy a sightseeing tour featuring some of the French capital's highlights, followed by a visit to the Île de la Cité in the River Seine. Check into your chic new boutique hotel, then join us for dinner this evening at an authentic Parisian brasserie where you will experience a real taste of life in Paris!


Meals: B, D

Day 6: An opulent château at Versailles & more in Paris

Today takes you about an hour outside the city for a guided visit to Château de Versailles, built by King Louis XIV and the largest palace in Europe, revealing a realm of grandeur and riches beyond imagination; it would cost more than $2 billion to build this sprawling palace complex today! Explore the opulent palace with a local guide and view the exquisite gardens, among the most extraordinary and famous in the world. Return to Paris for a special lunch, followed by a visit to the Eiffel Tower, an afternoon sightseeing tour, and a free evening to enjoy more of Paris as you wish.


Meals: B, L

Day 7: Louvre scavenger hunt & Montmartre visit

Explore the treasures of one of the world's most famous museums this morning – Musée du Louvre, home to Leonardo da Vinci’s mysterious Mona Lisa, the 2nd-century Greek sculpture, Venus de Milo, and about 35,000 other works of art from the Middle Ages to the 19th century housed in this former palace – on a guided scavenger hunt and tour that also includes the nearby Tuileries Garden. Then ride the Petit Train to discover the special joie de vivre atmosphere of hilltop Montmartre, where poets, writers and artists have practiced their crafts for centuries; a guided walking tour may reveal them at work. Following some free time this afternoon, join us this evening for our private, exclusive and magical farewell dinner at a local restaurant.


Meals: B, D

Day 8: Journey home

Tour ends: Paris. Fly home anytime; a transfer is included from Fauchon L'Hotel Paris to Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport or Orly Airport. You should allow a minimum of 3 hours for your flight check-in.
