Day 1 - 4
Lucerne, Switzerland | 3 Nights
Upon arrival in Zurich Airport, you will be directly transferred to your accommodation in Lucerne. Enjoy your time at leisure.
During your stay in Lucerne, enjoy the following activities suggestion:
Daytrip to Interlaken
Spend one day, enjoy a privately guided excursion into the Swiss Alps aboard mountain trains. At the Sphinx observatory platform atop Jungfraujoch (elevation 11,388 feet), see enormous glaciers, impressive peaks such as the Eiger, and verdant valleys far below. Perhaps opt for hiking, tubing, sledding or other activities on the snow. Throughout the journey, stop in villages such as Wengen and Grindelwald to take in the spectacular views.
Sunset Cruise Lake Lucerne
Known as the “Lake of the Four Cantons”, Lake Lucerne is a stunning body of water with an irregular shape that invites you to explore. The lake has four arms going off at sharp angles, with epic mountains on all sides.
Lucerne sits in the northwesternmost nook, and you can make for the Luzern Bahnhofquai to catch one of five early-20th-century paddle steamers for cruises on the lake. Experience the natural spectacle of a radiant sunset over the towering peaks of Central Switzerland. Let the tranquility of the lake and the majesty of the mountains do their bit.
Golden Tour of Mount Pilatus
Standing in Lucerne it’s impossible not to be mesmerized by this 2,128-metre mountain to the south. The peak is steeped in folklore, and has the nickname “Dragon Mountain” after a medieval legend claimed it was inhabited by dragons with healing powers. In summer a special loop, the Goldene Rundfahrt (Golden Tour) has been devised, in which you depart Lucerne by paddle steamer.
Day 4 - 8
Paris, France | 4 Nights
You will be transferred to Zurich about 1 -1,5 hours’ drive and ready to take your flight to Paris.
Arrive Paris, you will be picked up and transfer to the accommodation & free at leisure.
Enjoy the following activities during your stay in Paris:
Full day tour to Versailles
Enjoy a private excursion out of Paris to Versailles. Tour Louis XIV’s opulent palace, extensive gardens, and Hameau de la Reine, the mock hamlet created for Marie-Antoinette.
This mind-blowing historic marvel is one of France’s most opulent jewels, and is crucial to understanding the country’s history and a very specific moment of leadership. A 17th century Château and estate that spans over 800 hectares (1,977 acres). The Sun King’s grand creation during his reign, the Palace is open for visits year-round and includes bedrooms, the King’s state apartments, the Hall of Mirrors, and some 2,300 rooms in total. Every summer, one contemporary work of art by an iconic modern artist has been installed in the gardens, from Jeff Koons to Anish Kapoor and Olafur Eliasson. The old and new come together beautifully, a nod to its initial mission to support artistic creations.
VIP Tour Disney Land Paris Theme Park
Enjoy a full day playing at Disneyland Paris. There are shows including Mickey’s Magic Show, a stage show featuring performances from many wonderful Disney films including The Lion King and Frozen, and my children particularly loved being able to explore Sleeping Beauty’s Castle and the cave network on Adventure Isle. Ticket Include:
- 5 hours VIP Access
- Personalized visit
- VIP Places
Daytrip to Giverny
The tiny country village of Giverny, 74km northwest of Paris or 1, 5 hours from Paris is a place of pilgrimage for devotees of impressionism, though the summer months herald the tour-bus crowds, who shatter the bucolic peace. Monet lived here from 1883 until his death in 1926, in a rambling house – surrounded by flower-filled gardens – that’s now the immensely popular Maison et Jardins de Claude Monet.
Bateaux Parisiens River Cruise
Experience a Seine cruise to discover the most breathtaking Parisian views from a boat. Large choice of lunch or Seine river dinner cruises, by day and night.
End of journey.
