    Just a metaphor! Transportation connections, hotels, meals and tours were all well handled and top rate. Staff in both cities were helpful and polite. For 1st time travelers, we had a fairly easy time finding our way around. Air travel portion was simpler than than I projected. Would highly recommend.

    London-Paris 2015 - 9 Day Independent

    6/13/2015 Frederick Maas Jr, Phillipsburg, United States

    Great hotel accommodations! Daily breakfast was always good and plentiful from early on in the morning until about 10 AM. All transfers from/to airports, hotels and train stations worked without a hitch. Beyond those conveniences, this was a truly an independent vacation which we thoroughly enjoyed being left to our devices to explore and discover with the help of guide maps and books. Highly recommend but go for more than 9 days which was way too short. Happy Travels!
