We spent the morning touring Dijon, then hopped on the TGV Lyria to Paris for our last day. We had a great time on the Paris Dinner Cruise, delicious food, incredible views & the Eiffel Tower, lit up and sparkling!
Today’s adventures began with a city tour of Narbonne, including many great sites in the city. We left on a TGV train to Lyon, then TER train to Dijon. The day was complete with Teresa’s first experience with Escargot!
An exciting day on-board high-speed trains! We took the France-Spain High Speed train from Paris to Barcelona for lunch & sightseeing. Then hopped on the AVE train to Narbonne.
We had an amazing half day tour of London today, seeing sights such as Big Ben, Buckingham Palace & St. Paul’s. We ended our day with an incredible ride on Eurostar to Paris!
Today Teresa explored Manchester with a city tour, then hopped on the train to Liverpool. A city tour of Liverpool was followed by the Beatles Story Tour & visit to Albert Dock.
Today we departed Birmingham for Warwick Castle & Oxford. After a few train cancellations & delays we were able to continue with our scheduled plans. Amazing sights & cities seen today, we finished the day off in Manchester.
We arrived safely at London’s Heathrow Airport. After taking Heathrow Express to Paddington Station, we transferred to Euston Station and boarded a Virgin train for Birmingham. A walking tour and dinner were enjoyed in this innovative city.
