Duration
8 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,762

What is a Classic Independent Itinerary? SEE Goway Classic BELOW

Combine two of Europe’s greatest cities – London and Paris. Start with a 3 night stay in London. Design your own itinerary with a hop-on, hop-off bus tour operating 24 hours a day at regular intervals. First timers may want to focus on a few of the major sights such as the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, the British Museum, Shakespeare’s Globe, the Tate Modern, or the Changing of the Guard to name a few. Just remember, the world also looks to London for the next ‘big thing’ in culture, entertainment, and food. Treat yourself to the West End’s latest hit musical or let one of the city’s many innovative restaurants do away with those outdated stereotypes about British cuisine.

Also included is a full day trip to Windsor Castle, Bath, and the mysterious and enigmatic Stonehenge. Pay your respects to royalty at Windsor, ponder the mysteries of the ancient pagans, at Stonehenge then wander the Georgian Streets and take in the Roman architecture of Bath.

Cross over the channel (Not included, but we can advise) to Paris and spend 3 more nights in the “City of Lights”.

Here you will have the advantage again of using the hop-on, hop-off bus tour with 50 stops on offer. You can include highlights of this wonderful destination such as the Eiffel tower, the Champs Elysees, the Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre Museum, the Left Bank (St. Germain des Pres) the Palais Royal, the original Paris Opera House featured in the “Phantom of the Opera” and perhaps some shopping at the Galeries Lafayette.

Your second full day is devoted to the splendid palaces and gardens of Versailles, the official residence of the Kings of France, Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI and their courts from 1682 to 1789. It is as much an icon of Paris as any attraction in the city. Receive a guided tour of the gardens, visiting the State Apartments and imagine the Palace during the reign of Louis XIV, the Sun King.

You have a free day next to continue your exploration of this very special city.

    Behind the history of the hotel, hides a love story.... The love story between a rich Russian businessman, Alexander Pavlovich Kliaguine, and a young french student who first met at a "literature salon" in 1928. It was love at first sight. In order to introduce her to Parisian "high society" at the time, he bought a hotel in the prestigious 8th arrondissement and gave it to her as a wedding present. Still today the hotel belongs to the Kliaguine family. Today, following a large renovation program, the hotel is proud to announce its 5th star. With its unique location, just a short walk away from the Champs-Elysees and the Arc de Triomphe, the Hotel Napoleon is one of the most legendary hotels of the city: a fine address to discover and rediscover. All rooms and suites are designed in the Empire style with newly refurbished and modernized colors. A Parisian atmosphere still remains in the Hotel.

Your day begins with a visit to one of the National Treasures. Built high above the River Thames, Windsor Castle has been home to the Royal Family for 900 years and is still an Official Residence of the Queen. Here you will visit the magnificent State Apartments, still used for State occasions and Royal receptions. Your next stop is clouded in mystery. The ancient stone circle of Stonehenge is an amazing feat of engineering and the most important prehistoric site in England, but beyond its archaeological significance and possible astronomical role, Stonehenge is also a place of spiritual importance. Early legends link it with Merlin and King Arthur, but over the last hundred years the midsummer sunrise has attracted pagan groups and followers of the Ancient Order of Druids. You will also visit the beautiful Georgian City of Bath and take you on a panoramic tour of some of the finest architectural sights in Europe, including Bath Abbey, the Royal Crescent, the Circus, Assembly Rooms and the famous Pulteney Bridge. Explore the Roman Baths, built around thermal springs, which have been supplying water for over 2,000 years. In Roman times a great Temple was built next to the sacred spring - the waters were believed to have healing properties and attracted visitors from across the Roman Empire.
