'Vacation, all I ever wanted. Vacation, had to get away?' We're sure you remember these lyrics from the Go Go's famous song from the 80s. You've probably even sung the lyrics-maybe in the shower. Monograms knows you need a vacation, that's why we've made traveling to London, Paris, & Geneva easy! We've arranged your hotel reservations in each city, sightseeing, transportation between cities, transfers to/from the train stations, and daily breakfast. We've even arranged for you to have a Local Host in each city, someone who is on hand to offer suggestions, answer your questions, arrange activities, and ensure your vacation is all you want it to be. Your vacation begins as soon as you arrive in London, as we can seamlessly whisk you from baggage claim to your selected hotel. Here, your Local Host will help you get settled and give you materials to familiarize you with the city. The next morning, after included breakfast, we'll pick you up at your hotel for exclusive, guided sightseeing with a local expert. Hear inside stories about must-see landmarks, such as St. Paul's Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, and Big Ben before arriving in time to see the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace. In Paris, your guided sightseeing with an expert local guide features inside visits to Notre Dame Cathedral, the iconic cathedral dating to 1163, and the Louvre, the world's most visited art museum. And never fear?we've included VIP access, so you won't waste time standing in line. Instead, you'll be up close and personal with da Vinci's Mona Lisa and the museum's other famous treasures. We've also scouted out the best place to capture photos of the Eiffel Tower, and we'll take you there.In both London and Paris, you'll have a full day to discover more of these cities. But don't worry, your Local Host will offer suggestions and can help arrange your activities. You may want to take a cruise on the Thames River in London or the Seine River in Paris. Perhaps ride the London Eye or take a ride to the top of the Eiffel Tower. You may want to see a show in London's West End or at Paris' Moulin Rouge. The opportunities are endless!Your guided sightseeing in Geneva features the Jet d' Eau, Europe's tallest water fountain, and an inside visit to St. Peter's Cathedral, the Romanesque-Gothic church best known for John Calvin's sermons during the mid-16th century. A vacation highlight is an excursion to Chamonix & Mont Blanc from Geneva. Chamonix held the first Winter Olympics and is famous for its magnificent beauty. We've included a cable-car ride to the top of Mont Blanc, Western Europe's tallest peak, offering you breathtaking views of Chamonix and the Alps. You'll also have free time to explore on your own. And did we mention we've included transportation between the cities? You'll travel via the high-speed Eurostar train through the Chunnel, an engineering marvel, from London to Paris. From Paris to Geneva, you'll travel first-class on the high-speed TGV train. We'll even take you from/to your hotels to/from the train stations and get you on the correct train! It's just another way Monograms makes traveling easily, so you can stop singing, 'Vacation, all I ever wanted. Vacation, have to get away?'
