London's gems are as plentiful as those on the Crown Jewels and you’ll discover many of them when you enhance your base tour with extra time in the United Kingdom’s capital. Your Superior First Class hotel is just steps away from some of the world’s best shopping, dining, and museums, and you’ll enjoy just the right balance of included visits and leisure time. Perhaps you’ll discover the world of Harry Potter in your free time, or go shopping for the likeness of Paddington Bear.

Arrive in London
Today, if you purchased Vantage air, you and your family will be transferred to your centrally located hotel after being picked up at the airport. Take advantage of the hospitality desk, where you can plan your next couple of days’ activities, or use our complimentary Concierge service in advance to do so in advance.) The desk or hotel concierge can make recommendations on where to enjoy an independent dinner.
Wake up refreshed and head out on the town. Perhaps you can head toward Paddington Station and chase the pawprints of one of Tinseltown’s most famous bears, or check out the Harry Potter tour (independently) at Warner Bros. studios. Or, simply wander around and enjoy a summer’s day. Kew Gardens is a lovely option to experience 250 years of history, botanical marvels, and check a UNESCO World Heritage Site off your list.
Meet the rest of your group
This morning, free time is yours before the rest of your base tour joins you at the hotel this evening. You’ll be treated to a double-decker bus ride and dinner when you meet the rest of your fun group!
The glittering capital of France awaits on an optional trip extension that allows you the freedom to explore this historic city thanks to a conveniently located hotel. You can enjoy the pace that suits you and your loved ones as you check out iconic museums, perhaps wandering the spooky catacombs, checking out nearby landmarks like historic châteaux or amusement parks. Wander in Madeline’s footsteps, visit Disneyland Paris, or just grab a coffee and watch passersby on the Champs-Élysées. The choice is yours!
Paris at your own pace
Today the day is free to explore the city — or beyond — from your centrally located hotel. There will be a City Host or Adventure Leader to consult for recommendations. Perhaps you’ll explore more museums, like the Musée d’Orsay, or the newly opened interactive museum, L'Atelier des Lumières. Summer is also a great time to rent a bike and pedal picturesque paths.
A full day of sightseeing awaits
Today, a full day enjoying Paris’ splendor is at your fingertips. Explore more of the city, or perhaps venture out on a fun day trip. The train system makes it easy to venture out to châteaux like Cheverny, which inspired writer/illustrator Hergé to create the Adventures of Tintin. You can also check out exhilarating Disneyland Paris. Your entire day and meals are at leisure.
