Itinerary

Day One

Leaving the local area this morning you'll head to France via cross-Channel ferry arriving at your hotel by early evening.

Day Two

Visit the small village of Giverny, home and inspiration to perhaps the most famous of the French Impressionists, Claude Monet. Monet's house, with its attractive pink facade, has been restored to its original beauty and now contains reproductions of his work. In the gardens, re-planted to his design, you will find his studio and the lily pond, subject of many of his paintings.

This afternoon we travel up the Seine Valley to Rouen, the lovingly restored capital of Upper Normandy. Stroll along narrow bustling streets, past half-timbered houses or climb the Belfry of the Gros Horloge and enjoy wonderful views of the city. Rouen was also the site of the trial and execution of Joan of Arc - see her monument in the Place du Vieux Marche, next to the church of Ste-Jeanne D'Arc with its beautiful stained-glass windows.

There'll be time to explore before returning to your hotel this evening.

Day Three

Today enjoy an included panoramic sightseeing tour of Paris, taking in such sights as the Champs Elysees, the Arc de Triomphe, and the Eiffel Tower. Afterwards, you may wish to join our optional excursion to the Montparnasse Tower. Ride one of the fastest lifts in the world up, and enjoy incredible city views.

After a day at leisure, this evening bid 'au revoir' on an optional excursion to the cafe-lined streets of the Latin Quarter, and board a famous Bateau Mouche for a romantic cruise along the Seine.

Day Four

You'll begin your journey home after breakfast, arriving back in your local area by mid-to-late evening.

Further Information

Channel crossings

Where possible, we will cross the Channel by ferry at the beginning and end of your holiday. However, we reserve the right to substitute crossings by Eurotunnel when necessary.

Coach seating arrangements

Your seats on the main coach will be allocated for you in advance, taking into consideration any special requests wherever possible. Your Tour Manager or driver 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.)

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.

Meet at port option

To give you greater flexibility and allow you to travel on the date that suits you best, you may like to meet the coach at Folkestone Services (called Stop 24) on the M20, which is just a five-minute drive from the Channel Tunnel and a 15-minute drive from Dover. If you wish to do this, please select the county 'Kent' and the pick-up point 'Stop 24 Folkestone Services Saltwood' when booking. You will be notified of the exact pick-up location in your Final Travel Details, which you will receive approximately 7-10 days prior to departure. Further information and car parking charges can be found at www.stop24.co.uk

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. Please also note that there is no wheelchair access to the Water Garden at Giverny.

Triple rooms

The majority of these consist of a double bed and an extra bed that is often only suitable for children. If this is a concern, you may wish to consider booking more than one room for your group.

All good apart from some people not sticking to their designated seat. Tour guide should have been more assertive.
