Itinerary

Day One

Travelling by comfortable coach, you'll leave the local area today to make your way to your Channel crossing. You'll continue through France to your overnight hotel.

Day Two

Continue south to the shores of the Mediterranean, and arrive in Menton in time for dinner. During your stay, you'll have plenty of time to explore a place that enjoys a mild microclimate, and boasts a delightful old town together with its charming Promenade du Soleil which runs along the pretty beachfront.

Day Three (Christmas Eve)

Today's included excursion is to sparkling Cannes, with its world-famous seafront promenade, La Croisette, and the ultra-exclusive yachting enclave of Antibes. Both radiate Cote d'Azur elegance and charm. You'll return to spend the evening in Nice, beginning your celebrations at the hotel.

Day Four (Christmas Day)

Enjoy a visit to famous, fabulous Nice, the epitome of Riviera-chic, its Promenade des Anglais sweeping round the curve of the Bay of Angels.

During your journey, which will take in the stunning views from the Corniche roads above the coast, you'll discover the breathtaking, hilltop village of Eze, jet-set watering hole St Jean Cap Ferrat, and quaint Villefranche, still a working fishing port and a favourite spot for pleasure-seekers.

Day Five

Rest and relax in the hotel and its surroundings, or join today's optional excursion to the tiny principality of Monaco, with its Royal Palace, the Palais Princier - home to the royal Grimaldi family - its famous Casino and its harbour full of improbably luxurious yachts.

Day Six

Bid 'Au revoir' to the Riviera, as you begin your homeward journey, heading north to your overnight hotel.

Day Seven

Continue to your journey through France to your Channel crossing, the UK and home.

European Christmas Closing Times

Shops in Europe will generally be closed from early afternoon on Christmas Eve until 27th December.

Coach seating arrangements

Your Tour Manager will have allocated seats for you on the main coach in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible, and will advise you where to sit as you board the coach. This will be your seat for the duration of the tour. (Seats are not allocated on any connecting services to and from the main coach.)

Your journey

Depending on your departure point, you may leave your pick-up point very early in the morning and return very late at the end of the holiday, in order to meet your scheduled Channel crossing. There will also be a stop to transfer you from a feeder coach to your main coach, on both the outward and return journeys.

Joining your holiday

Your final travel documents, including the exact time and place of departure, will be sent to you approximately 10 days prior to departure, providing all payments have been made. We are unable to give exact departure times before this.

Meal arrangements

Where meals are not included, your Tour Manager will ensure there are suitable stops made for you to purchase and enjoy lunch and/or dinner each day.

Special requirements

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.

Disabled access

The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.

Ferry/Eurotunnel crossings

Your Channel crossings will either be by ferry or Eurotunnel and will be confirmed with your final travel documents.

Ipswich Couple
The stopover hotels are in the wrong places. Too many early starts after lots of hanging around at changeover stop. Good itinary in resort. Great location 5 mins from promenade, It was business hotel not geared up for Xmas guests. Good breakfast with a fab view. Dinner appalling as we were in a conference room and not the restaurant. Food cold. Slow service. Nice Xmas dinner. Cold buffet in evening consist of a chicken nugget, fish finger and cold slab of salmon with a bit of salad. No choice given. Newmarket need to check what hotels can offer before sending coaches to them. Nice is beautiful

Romford Couple
Excellent value for money and very enjoyable once you got to the resort BUT the first and last travelling days were far too long in transit and has put us off going again or recommending this holiday.
Perhaps it would be better to spread the travelling over 2.5 days and make it an 8day holiday with the cost suitable increased.
Very well organised with excellent drivers and tour manager.

Newport Single traveller
Really enjoyed every minute of trip. The only downside was having to get to pickup point early a.m. I go away every Xmas /N.Y. And with other Companies have always had door-to-door service. The coach was late arriving although whilst I was at pickup point they notified me. Luckily I had someone to wait with me as Newport was very busy with drunks. Had I arrived via a taxi it would have been awful.

Salisbury Couple
Both the resort and the hotel were brilliant, the long coach journey was too much. The drivers were excellent but the guide did nothing to enhance our holiday, he gave us no information as to where we were travelling, and no background information on any of the tours. We would probably fly had we known it was available.
