From elegant royal apartments to opulent mirrored rooms used for diplomatic affairs, cobbled lanes and castle towers, lush garden avenues and exquisite masterworks, your 8-day family friendly tour to London and Paris is an endless display of splendor. Begin your adventure in London, the capital city of England, and the seat of the British Empire. London offers continuous allure to both the British and people from around the world. Upon your arrival at Heathrow International Airport, your private transfer greets you and escorts the family to your fabulous hotel near the heart of the city.

The following day, the kids are excited to board a double-decker bus to explore the cityscape. Visit Westminster Abbey and witness the famous Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, including a visit to the Guards Museum. Continue the day with a private high-speed boat ride along the Rive Thames. Your guide will take you to Windsor Castle, summer home of the Royal Family. Follow up your castle tour with an exclusive cooking class making scones and English tea in a traditional teahouse before learning how to shoot a bow and arrow in the English countryside.

Next, your guide leads you on a walking tour along the River Thames, taking you to the stunning Tower of London. The following day, the kids delight in the opportunity of a train ride, traveling under the English Channel en route to Paris.
