Detailed Description

London and Paris can captivate for months. Picture famous art in the Louvre and the Tate, a journey by boat on the Thames or the Seine, ticking off world-renowned landmarks like Big Ben and the Eiffel Tower. But everyone seems to see the same side to these famous cities, frantically touring the sights that have been photographed by half the world. Instead, go behind the scenes in the cities that continue to enchant, just without the crowds and with far more fascination. You could see the famous canvases of the impressionists. Or you could tour the bridges and villages that were painted. In the Tower of London, you can get a sense of England's history. But on a private tour with a Jewel House Warden, you'll have exclusive access to the crowns and diamonds owned by the monarchy. Even if you've visited London and Paris many times before, this carefully crafted private luxury tour of London and Paris reveals a very different side, one that few people get to experience.

On this handcrafted itinerary, you combine five nights in London with three nights in Paris. Each day features a carefully selected private tour that showcases a new angle, plus there's plenty of time to explore at leisure, so you don't miss out on any of your must-visit sites. Royal London introductions come at Kensington Palace, a closed-door tour revealing the reception rooms of the monarchy and a fabulous private art collection. Uncover the buildings that have defined rock and roll history with a tailored music tour, including the Abbey Road crossing immortalized by The Beatles. Explore local markets in London's East End, destinations with an atmosphere unchanged for over a century; think cockney rhyming slang and jellied eels amongst other bizarre traditions. After a private viewing of the crown jewels, you discover a clandestine WWII narrative, with Churchill's bunkers and war rooms being another redolent slice of London history.

Paris is equally resplendent when you get off the beaten track. While there's free time to visit some of the monuments that tower above the River Seine, three sumptuous tours reveal so much more. Marie Antoinette is synonymous with the city, and a unique journey covers the evocative chronicles of France's most famous lady. Sensual and surprising, a culinary tour uncovers the cafes and treats favored by locals. Then you're out into the countryside, meandering through cute villages painted by Van Gogh and exploring Monet's hypnotic bridges. You'll even have time for a beer in the timeless cafes that the Impressionists once drank in. While most leave Paris with a postcard of the Champs-Elysees, you will end up behind the scenes at Versailles and in the charming alleyways revered by the locals.
