Your trip begins with an overnight flight to Paris. Then the adventure begins! Here's an example of your itinerary:

Here's What's On Deck:

Hooray! You've arrived at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport. Gather your luggage and belongings before you meet up with your tour leader and hop on a locally chartered motorcoach. The fun starts now :)

Transfer to Paris' city center, drop off your luggage in storage at the hotel and freshen up before starting your journey!

Head towards the heart of Paris and enjoy a bit of free time for lunch in Trocadéro (individual expense).

Embark on a guided tour of Paris aboard your luxury motorcoach, where you'll discover the Arc de Triomphe, the Champs-Elysées, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Notre-Dame and more!

Picture time! The best shots of the Eiffel Tower are taken from le parvis du Palais de Chaillot.

There’s so much to see and do at the iconic Eiffel Tower. Let's check it out!

Hungry yet? Settle in at the Le Malakoff Café and get ready to enjoy a delicious traditional brasserie meal in the heart of the capital.

Before the jet lag takes over, let's return to the hotel for a well-deserved night's rest.

Rise and shine! After breakfast and orientation with your Tour Leader, you'll head out for the day to explore Paris on foot and by public transit. There's no better way to experience the City of Lights!

First stop for the day: the Louvre, one of the greatest museums in the world. An official guide from the museum will lead you through the museum's vast collection, from Venus de Milo to Mona Lisa and everything in between.

After free time for lunch in the Quartier Latin (individual expense), we're taking you to the the magnificent Notre Dame Cathedral. With over 800 years under its belt, it's really something to think of all the major historical events that this architectural masterpiece has witnessed.

Let's explore Ile Saint Louis and Ile de la Cité. You'll see Pont Neuf, one of the oldest bridges of Paris; you'll pass by the Conciergerie, where Marie Antoinette spent her final hours; you'll stroll through the alleys of Square du Vert-Gallant; you'll catch stunning views of Pont des Arts and the Louvre, and you MUST try out the ice cream at Berthillion Cream Factory!

After some free time in the Halles shopping district, we're treating you hungry hippos to a wonderful meal at the Hippopotamus Restaurant near the Champe-Élysées.

Now let's walk that meal off with a charming jaunt through Place des Vosges, where generations of royals once lived.

What a day! Let's head back to the hotel for a well-deserved night's rest.

Rise and shine! After breakfast and orientation with your Tour Leader, we're going to the Père Lachaise cemetery. A local guide will take you to the tombstones of the cemetery's most famous residents and share amazing secrets and anecdotes, proving that cemeteries aren't just for ghost stories!

You might be familiar with the High Line New York City... well did you know that Paris has a High Line too? La Coulée Verte René-Dumont is a former railway track that offers unique views of the city, different architectural styles and a detour from the city's hustle and flow! Don't forget to grab lunch along the way (at individual expense).

Ladies and gentlemen, start your rolling pins! At l'Atelier des gâteaux, you're going to learn how to bake traditional French macaroons... oh, and you'll be eating them too :)

Hey, you've earned some free time to do some shopping! Or if that doesn't float your boat, why not settle in at a café and experience the Parisian way of life? Whatever you do, don't forget to grab supper along the way (individual expense).

What a day! Let's head back to the hotel for a well-deserved night's rest.

Rise and shine! After breakfast and orientation with your Tour Leader, you're travelling by metro (subway) to the nearest train station to catch the C Train to Versailles.

Once you've arrive, you'll be treated to a guided tour of the magnificent Palace of Versailles, where you’ll discover, among other the things, the stunning Hall of Mirrors. You'll also grab lunch on site (individual expense).

Next up: the sumptuous gardens of Versailles, an endless network of gorgeous green paths and hidden nooks and crannies.

Once you've made your way back into Paris, it's time to live like a local with an epic game of pétanque, a traditional lawn bowling game. You'll learn not only to play but also to practice your conversational French :)

Boy, that lawn bowling sure works up an appetite. Time for dinner at an authentic bistro in Place du Tertre!

You can't visit Paris without exploring Montmartre, a storied neighbourhood that overlooks the city from its highest hill. Take in the architecture of the Basilique du Sacré-Cœur and enjoy the effortless charm of Place Pigalle and the Moulin Rouge.

You're going to love the Luxembourg gardens, where we're giving you free time to explore. Then it's time for a wonderful meal at Léon de Bruxelles, a restaurant with Belgian flair.

What a day! Let's head back to the hotel for a well-deserved night's rest.

Rise and shine! After breakfast and orientation with your Tour Leader, get ready for a guided tour of the magnificent Musée d'Orsay, where you'll be treated to the very best by the very best, including Monet, Renoir, Cézanne, Gauguin, Van Gogh and more.

After free time for lunch (individual expense), we're going to the Army Museum in the heart of the Hôtel National des Invalides.

You can't see Paris without visiting the Champs-Elysées! You'll make your way there via l'Esplanade des Invalides; you'll cross Pont Alexandre III and explore the Champs-Élysées from the Arc de Triomphe to Avenue Montaigne, where all the great fashion designers reside.

All aboard! We're going to cruise the river Seine on a bateau-mouche. You'll see Paris from a unique angle and tuck in to a traditional Parisian bistro dinner along the way.

Finish the day at Champs de Mars, where a memorable group picture in front of the Eiffel Tower is in order!

What a day! Let's head back to the hotel to pack our bags and settle in for a well-deserved night's rest.
