Bond. James Bond. Unleash your inner James Bond and travel to two of his famous haunts—London & Paris—for a two-week vacation that is sure to thrill you even more than an exciting James Bond movie! And don’t worry…unlike James Bond, you won’t be left on your own to figure out these destinations; Monograms will be there for you. On this 13-day package, we’ve arranged your hotel reservations, sightseeing, daily buffet breakfast, and transportation. Plus, in each city, you’ll have the services of a Local Host®, who is an expert on the city and whose goal is to make sure you enjoy your vacation! </BR></BR>On the day you arrive, your London Local Host will meet you at your hotel to help you settle in and give you materials. The next day, after your included breakfast, Monograms will pick you up at your hotel for your exclusive, half-day sightseeing excursion with a local expert. Hear the inside stories about must-see sights like Big Ben and Piccadilly Circus. Pretend you are royalty as you witness the Changing of the Guard and see Westminster Abbey, where Prince William and Kate Middleton were married. You’ll visit iconic St. Paul’s Cathedral, wedding place of Prince Charles and Lady Diana. You’ll also have four days in London to explore on your own (with the support of your Local Host of course). Ride a double-decker bus and take the Underground; shop at the famous department stores, such as Selfridges; grab ale at a local pub; visit the 2000-year-old Roman baths in nearby Bath; see the Beefeaters at the Tower of London; and take in a West End musical.</BR></BR>Then you’re off to Paris on the thrilling Eurostar train directly from London to Paris. And we make it easy by picking you up at your London hotel, taking you to the train station, getting you to the correct train, meeting you at the Paris train station, and taking you to your Paris hotel. The next day, after your included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for sightseeing with a local expert guide. Hear the stories behind places like the Latin Quarter and Place de la Concorde. We’ll also take you inside Notre Dame Cathedral and the Louvre Museum, where you’ll see some of the world’s most treasured artwork. Best of all, your sightseeing includes VIP access, so you’ll get to skip the lines! Why wait outside with everyone else when you can spend your time with the Mona Lisa? </BR></BR>Did we mention that you’ll also have four days in Paris to have fun on your own? You can take an excursion to the 17th-century baroque Palace of Versailles, the vineyards of the Champagne region, or 11th-century Mont Saint Michel Abbey; enjoy dinner and a cabaret show at the Lido; take a cooking class from a French chef; wander around Montmartre; visit one of the many museums; shop at the Galeries Lafayette; ascend the Eiffel Tower; or just sit back and relax while enjoying a drink at a café on the infamous Champs-Elysées.
