The many treasures and rich history of the Tower of London – including the British Crown Jewels – await you this morning, followed by a completely different view of the city when you soar 450 feet above it aboard a private capsule on the world’s highest observation wheel, the London Eye. This evening, enjoy a pre-show dinner at the renowned Simpson's in the Strand prior to an included theatrical performance in the celebrated West End theatre district.

The remainder of the day is free to discover Paris as you wish. Your hotel is ideally located close to landmark sights.

You will have time on your own this afternoon to explore city sights as you like; there are gardens to stroll, museums to discover and pastry shops that tempt with colorful macarons, melt-in-your mouth cakes and crusty baguettes, that all defy resistance. Note: On departures with the after-hours Louvre visit on day 5, today will feature a guided walking tour of Paris architecture.

London and Paris were everything I anticipated as far as seeing the really important sites for tourists. The accommodations were excellent even though in the "Beverly Hills" of the each city. The hotels were 4-5 star, located in "safe" areas and had many amenities. The days were full and we walked a lot yet doing that gave you a perspective on each city you can't get from being in the coach. Know that you will walk a lot yet have the option to not do so if you want. Restaurants on this tour are "to die for"...just the best.
