About this Package

Saturday
Paris – Reims – Luxembourg (B)

The tour leaves from Paris for a delightful scenic journey through the rolling countryside of the Champagne region, famous the world over for the sparkling white wine produced here. Enjoy seeing the historic attractions of provincial capital Reims, including the City’s Cathedral – a key national heritage site, where coronations of French kings took place from the 11th century onwards.

Hotel: 3* in Amsterdam or city nearby Melia Luxembourg / Novotel Luxembourg Kirchberg or similar

Sunday
Luxembourg – Trier – Koblenz - Frankfurt (B)

Today we leave Luxembourg behind and head across another European border into Germany. The first stop is historic Trier, Germany’s oldest city and the birthplace of Karl Marx. You will have the chance to see from the outside the house where the influential philosopher was born, which now functions as the Karl Marx Haus museum.

Your walking tour then takes you into the centre of Trier; here you can look around the city’s impressive Cathedral, where the celebrated Holy Robe – said to be the tunic of Christ – is preserved and occasionally displayed. Trier is also known as ‘The Second Rome’ (Constantine served as an administrator here for 10 years), and significant legacies of the once-great
empire remain today. The highlight is undoubtedly Porta Nigra, the best-preserved Roman city gate north of the Alps, which you will get to see and photograph.

After an exciting morning in Trier, you will drive on to Koblenz, famous as the location of the confluence of the Rhine and Mosel Rivers. Here you have the option of indulging in a relaxing lunch alongside the water, then afterwards you can also choose to add on a scenic Rhine boat cruise for some memorable city vistas. Back on dry land you will drive through the wine-making town of Rüdesheim. Then it’s on to Frankfurt am Main, where you will discover the delights of Römerberg, a charming plaza with a distinctive medieval town hall as its centrepiece.
NOTE: The Rhine boat cruise is only operational from 3rd April to 31st October.

Hotel: 3* in Frankfurt or city nearby Park Inn by Radisson Frankfurt Airport Hotel / NH Morfelden or similar

Monday
Frankfurt – Bonn – Cologne - Amsterdam (B)

The morning begins with a leisurely drive north-west from Frankfurt to Bonn, the capital of the former West Germany until reunification. The national government is now run from Berlin, but Bonn retains a rich history that is well worth exploring.

Discover the city’s secrets on an orientation stroll through its streets, walking past highlights such as the Rococo-fronted Town Hall and Ludwig Van Beethoven Haus, a museum celebrating the life of the much-loved composer. Then it’s on to Cologne, where you will head inside the city’s glorious Gothic Cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The rest of the afternoon is yours to explore Cologne further, to do a spot of local shopping or to simply relax with a suitably
refreshing German brew. After lunch the day is rounded off with a drive into the Netherlands.

A day of delights begins with a leisurely trip through the Dutch countryside, where you will get to sample at close quarters some of the things that the Netherlands is traditionally famous for: clogs, cheese and windmills. Call in at the hugely popular model town of Zaanse Schans. Next, you will head from the quiet countryside to the cosmopolitan city as your journey takes you back to Amsterdam.

After visiting a well-known Diamond Factory, where you will see the unique cutting techniques that have been practiced here since the 16th century, you can take an optional hour-long pre-dinner canal cruise, which is a great way to discover more about this unique European city. After disembarking you will walk to one of the city’s grandest areas, Dam Square, where the Royal Palace is located and the Queen’s birthday celebrations take place. You will have photo opportunities here, free time for shopping or further sightseeing, and then round the day off with dinner. From mid-March to mid-May the tour will also visit Keukenhof Garden, a 32 hectare seasonal exhibition of beautifully coloured and scented displays of spring flowers - most notably millions of tulips.

On the way, the tour stops to see the distinctive Atomium Monument, a cell-shaped structure of stainless steel spheres and tubes built for the 1958 World’s Fair. In the centre of Brussels itself an orientation tour will call in at the exquisite Grand Place, as well as seeing the famous impish Manneken Pis statue. After some free time, during which you can try some mouth-watering Belgian delights. Then from Brussels it’s south again across the French border and on to the bright lights of Paris.

Thursday
Paris – Versailles – Paris (B)

The next two days in Paris you enjoy guided tours around one of the world’s most celebrated cities. Your Parisian adventures get off to a spectacular start with a drive along the famous ChampsÉlysées to the Place de la Concorde, which played such a key part in the French Revolution. You will also get to see the iconic Arc de Triomphe here too, the imposing monument that sits near the western end of the avenue and commemorates the fallen of the revolution and Napoleonic
wars.

You will take in another significant historical building next as you head to L’Hôtel National des Invalides, where Napoleon’s tomb is located, followed by a photo stop at the most legendary of all Paris’s icons: the Eiffel Tower. You can then take a leisurely cruise along the river Seine, a great sightseeing option that offers splendid views of iconic Parisian landmarks, including Notre-Dame Cathedral and Pont Alexandre III. Finally, you will travel on the coach out through the Parisian suburbs to the splendid Palace of Versailles, the vast regal château that was the residence of the royal family until the start of the revolution in 1789. Today the palace is another popular Parisian attraction. In the evening, you can enjoy one of our optional Paris evening shows.

Hotel: 3* in Paris or city nearby

Friday
Paris (B)

The second day of your Parisian experience begins with a visit to the Louvre, one of the world’s greatest art museums. Here you will set your eyes upon some of history’s most famous masterpieces, including the Venus de Milo, Winged Victory of Samothrace (also called Nike of Samothrace), and Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa. Take a walk in the galleries and enhance
your experience of more than hundreds of works in just a few hours.

After an exhilarating morning of walking the gallery corridors, replenish your energy levels with lunch in the museum before heading to the area surrounding the Palais Garnier, Paris’s opera house. Here the rest of the afternoon is yours to choose to either shop at the legendary department stores Galeries Lafayette and Printemps, or make your own arrangements to visit and ascent to the top floor of the Eiffel Tower, for unbeatable views over the city, a truly magical and unforgettable experience. For some members of the group it will be time to say goodbye to new-found friends, while others will opt to stay another night in this French city of delights before picking up the Green Line tour the next day.
