3 Nights London, 3 Nights Paris & 3 Nights Amsterdam (DRE)

Gulliver’s Travels…it’s a classic story about a man traveling in foreign lands who doesn’t know the language and has many mishaps. Imagine how different things could have been for him if he had experienced these foreign lands with a local—someone who knew the language, could answer questions, and could offer suggestions to make sure his travels ran smoothly! We don’t want you to end up like Gulliver, so that’s why on this 10-day vacation, we’ve arranged for you to have a Local Host® in each city: London, Paris, and Amsterdam. This one-of-a-kind feature offered only by Monograms will ensure you have a “friend in the city” to assist you and help ensure your vacation is what you want it to be. We’ve also arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast, sightseeing, transportation between cities, and transfers from/to your hotels to/from the train stations.

This vacation includes three nights each in London, Paris, and Amsterdam. It begins the moment you arrive in London, where your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome and a set of materials to familiarize you with the city and to help personalize your vacation. The next morning, after included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for exclusive, guided sightseeing with a local expert. You'll hear the inside stories around places like Westminster Abbey, where Prince William and Kate Middleton were married, and the Houses of Parliament. We’ll take you inside St. Paul's Cathedral, the iconic cathedral with a long history and where Prince Charles and Lady Diana were married. We’ll also take you to see the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, an experience that any traveler to London must have.

And it's not just London where we've arranged a Local Host and guided sightseeing. When you arrive in Paris and Amsterdam, your Local Host will greet you and once again present you with materials to familiarize you with the city. In both cities, we've also arranged guided sightseeing with an expert Local Guide. In Paris, we’ve scouted out the best place to capture a photo of the iconic Eiffel Tower, and we’ll take you there. We’ll also take you to Notre Dame Cathedral, dating from 1163, where you’ll admire its amazing 13th-century, stained-glass Rose Window. For a different perspective on Paris, we've arranged for you to enjoy a Seine River cruise, a beautiful way to see the city. In Amsterdam, your guided sightseeing also includes a cruise. You'll travel by glass-roofed boat through Amsterdam's canals, the best way to see houses built during Holland’s Golden Age, as well as its famous bridges and fascinating houseboats. We’ll also take you to a diamond center and the Rijksmuseum, where you’ll see works by Rembrandt and other Dutch masters.

In each city, you’ll have a full day to explore on your own. In London, you may want to ride the London Eye; shop at the world-famous department stores, such as Harrods and Selfridges; enjoy a cruise on the Thames River; ride a double-decker bus and the famous Underground; or enjoy a show in London's West End. From Paris, perhaps take an excursion to the opulent Palace of Versailles; shop at the many designer boutiques and department stores, such as the Galeries Lafayette, where we’ve secured discounts for you; enjoy dinner at the Eiffel Tower or at one of the many restaurants along the Champs-Elysées; visit one of the many museums; or enjoy a walk in the Jardin du Luxembourg. In Amsterdam, you may want to visit the Anne Frank House or the Van Gogh Museum, join the locals and ride a bike along the canals, or take an excursion to the fishing villages of Volendam and Marken.

And don't forget…your package includes transportation between the cities. You’ll travel via the high-speed Eurostar train from London to Paris (imagine the thrill of riding through the Chunnel!) and by high-speed Thalys train (first-class) from Paris to Amsterdam. We've even included transfers from/to your hotels to/from the train stations. Between that and the sightseeing and guides we've arranged, and the hotels we’ve booked, all you have to do is enjoy your adventures. But unlike Gulliver, we’ll be there to guide and help you—it’s an amazing vacation opportunity!

The Dorchester Hotel

For afternoon tea, why not nip over to the Dorchester? Winner of the 2007 Tea Council's award for Finest Afternoon Tea, this hotel definitely keeps with tradition. Remember, the dress code is smart.

Vinopolis: City of Wine

Interactive learning at its best. Wander the airy vaults of this cellar and listen to the history of wine while sipping on the matter at hand. A museum never tasted so good.

The Old Operating Theatre Museum and Herb Garret

Climb a creaky spiral staircase to a church attic for a look at Britain's only surviving operating theatre, where limbs were sawed off in front of a live, viewing audience. Tour an assemblage of other Victorian medical devices, and you'll be glad to step soundly back into the 21st century.

Red Rose

It'd be a shame to leave London without sampling its celebrated Indian cuisine. From tandooris to saffron fish tikka, there's something for everyone at the Red Rose, smack dab in the middle of town. To test your tongue's pain tolerance, try the hotter than hot Harry Mirch Chicken.

Bramah Tea and Coffee Museum

Tea and coffee connoisseurs will find this small museum fascinating, in which the story of London's premier caffeinated beverages unfolds. Stop by the museum café for a wide selection of the museum's subjects.

Hampstead Heath

Take a vacation from the city without leaving it. Meadows, hills, woods and ponds sprawl across this 791-acre park. Wander nearby cobblestone streets to lose all sense of time as pristine Georgian cottages and gas lamps galore light your path.

The Dove

This charming 17th-century inn is one of West London's favorite watering holes. Tucked away down a tiny alley, this historical pub serves excellent fish and chips and is an ideal place to while away a lazy afternoon.

Chelsea Football Club - Stadium Tours

You probably know Chelsea as home to one of Britain's top football clubs. The Chelsea FC stadium tour offers a unique glimpse inside the very heart of Stamford Bridge where you can visit the world class changing rooms, be the manager in the dug-out, walk up the players' tunnel and see some of the best views of the stadium. Make sure you bring your camera!

The Saatchi Gallery

Housed in the former military barracks of the Duke of York's Headquarters, you find 70,000 square feet of contemporary art exhibition. The former ad man Charles Saatchi champions young artists and many of them are unknown when first exhibited, not only to the general public but also to the commercial art world.

Meet a Local Host

I was born in Paris and have always lived in the picturesque Montmartre area. Thanks to several years in the art history section of La Sorbonne University, I know every corner of the “City of Light.” I truly enjoy sharing my passion and knowledge about magical “Paree.” I have been a Local Host in Paris for many years, and my daily challenge is to make Monograms’ guests feel not like tourists, but like locals.

Montmartre, Latin Quarter

Try a walking tour of the Montmartre district, where artists such as Picasso, Monet, and Van Gogh worked. Your Local Host can suggest other intriguing walking tours of areas such as the Latin Quarter, the fashion district, or where to find the graves of Jim Morrison and Chopin in the Père Lachaise Cemetery.

Sacré-Coeur

While in Montmartre, visit the Sacré-Coeur (Sacred Heart). This pristine, white-stone church was proposed as a memorial to the soldiers killed in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870, but it was not completed until the end of World War I. The church features one of the world's largest mosaics, which depicts Christ with outstretched arms, and a massive 19-ton church bell. Enjoy wonderful views of Paris from the Sacré-Coeur steps.

Musée d’Orsay

Stroll through centuries of artwork at the Musée d’Orsay, which houses an extensive collection of impressionist masterpieces by Monet, Degas, Renoir, and Cezanne. You can also admire Rodin’s statues, and do not miss the spectacular reception room.

Sainte-Chapelle

Fifteen intricately designed panels of stained glass—commissioned by Louis IX— depict 1,100 story-telling scenes.

Jardin du Luxembourg, Parc du Champ de Mars

Families may like to take a stroll in one of the famous parks and take a whirl on their charming carousels. You can also see the “pétanque” players, or sit on one of the “so typical” Parisian green chairs.

Seine Bridges

Find your favorite bridge. There are 37, and they are all different—from plain to gilded and from new to over 400 years old. The special atmosphere they create across the Seine River helps to make Paris one of the most romantic cities.

Shakespeare and Company Bookstore

In the Roaring 20s, this quirky bookstore on the Bohemian Left Bank was the meeting place for some of literature's greats—like Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and Joyce to name a few. It continues to serve as a cultural magnet for struggling writers and visitors alike.

Markets

Ask your Local Host how to get to the flea market for affordable objects d’art, or visit one of the food markets. The French know how to turn food display into an art form. See rainbows of fresh fruit and vegetables, soft palettes of bread, and colossal wheels of cheese—France has over 400 varieties of cheese. And when you're ready for dessert, specialty stores abound—from tarts and pastries to crêpes and pains au chocolat. Other specialties to try include onion soup with a fresh baguette, coq au vin (a classic chicken dish), croquet monsieur, quiche Lorraine, escargot, steak-frites, and famous French wines and champagne.

Champs-Elysées, Shopping

Shop at haute couture boutiques by the Champs-Elysées. Perfumes and scarves are classic gifts, as well as French berets, lace, collection dolls, and pottery. Use your included specially arranged discounts at the famous Galeries Lafayette, or check out the Printemps department store.

Cafés

When you’re ready for a break, join the locals at one of the cafés, sip a glass of wine or a café au lait (hot milk coffee), and watch the world go by in true Parisian style.

Shopping, P.C. Hoofstraat, Jordaan

Wander along the P.C. Hooftstraart near the Museum quarters to shop or browse for exclusive goods. Good buys in Holland include diamond jewelry, wooden articles such as clogs, embroidery and Delft pottery. In the 17th century, Amsterdam's canal diggers, bridge builders and stonemasons called Jordaan home. Now eccentric, one of a kind, shops, chic restaurants and painstakingly manicured courtyards make this a unique spot.

Pancakes, Poffertjes and Pea Soup

When you’re ready for a snack, try one of the local pancakes, there are over 300 varieties! Or maybe sample the similar poffertjes. Then there’s the many varieties of Dutch cheese. Pea soup is another specialty made with peas, potatoes, carrots, celery, smoked bacon, and sausage.

Rijsttafel

The rijsttafel is a unique fusion of Indonesian and Dutch culinary traditions from colonial times. It was a Dutch custom to eat leftovers on Sundays, the Indonesian people decided to reinvent this by cooking everything fresh. The main dish of a rijsttafel is noodles or rice with several small side dishes like meat, fish, vegetables. Tiny plates of food, arranged from mild to very, very spicy fill the table. Round off with a sip or two of Jenever, the Dutch liquor made from wheat or fruit.
