Itinerary

Day One

Leaving the local area in the early morning we head to France, arriving at our hotel in the evening.

Day Two

Travel along the Seine Valley to Giverny, once home to France's most famous artist - Claude Monet. His house, with its attractive pink facade, has been restored to its original beauty. Wander the garden paths before we continue to Rouen, lovingly restored capital of Upper Normandy with its Gothic cathedral, famous mechanical clock and monument to Joan of Arc. Stroll the narrow streets past half-timbered houses, or climb to the belfry of the Gros Horloge to enjoy wonderful views of the city.

We'll return to the hotel in the early evening.

Day Three

Today begins with an included panoramic sightseeing tour of the Parisian sights, including the Champs Elysees, Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower. Afterwards, join our optional excursion to the Montparnasse Tower, and ride one of the high-speed lifts to the 56th floor of this fascinating building to discover the incredible city views.

This evening, say goodbye to Paris on our final optional excursion to the cafe-lined streets of the Latin Quarter, which includes a romantic cruise along the Seine aboard one of the famous bateaux mouche.

Day Four

We begin our journey home after breakfast, today, arriving back in the 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.
