Amsterdam, Paris & London

10 Day Package from Amsterdam to London

In Ocean’s 12, the characters played by George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Matt Damon hit Amsterdam to pull off a heist. We won’t spoil the movie and tell you if they did, but we can tell you that on this Monograms vacation to Amsterdam, Paris, & London, you may feel like you pulled off a heist. Why? Because we’ve made traveling here so easy, you may feel like you’ve pulled a “fast one.” The truth is, you let us handle the details and logistics for you. On this 10-day vacation, we’ve arranged your hotel reservations, daily breakfast, sightseeing, transportation between the cities, and transfers to/from the train stations. Plus, you’ll have a Local Host® in each city, someone who is there for you to answer questions, offer insights, and help ensure your vacation is everything you want it to be.

Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in Amsterdam, as we can pick you up from the airport and whisk you seamlessly to your hotel. Here, your Local Host will greet you with a welcome and materials to help you get settled. The next day, after included breakfast, we’ll pick you up at your hotel for guided sightseeing with a local expert that includes a cruise by glass-roof boat through Amsterdam's canals. There is no better way to see the houses built during Holland’s Golden Age, its fascinating houseboats, and famous bridges. We've also arranged for you to visit a diamond center to learn about how the gems played an important role in the city’s history, and the Rijksmuseum, where you’ll see masterpieces by Rembrandt and other Dutch masters. During your free day in Amsterdam, you'll have time to explore on your own (with the support of your Local Host, of course). You may want to visit the Van Gogh Museum, take a dinner cruise along the canals, or visit the Anne Frank House.

Then, its off via high-speed train to Paris. We've arranged for guided sightseeing with a local expert in Paris that includes the must-see attractions, such as the Arc de Triomphe. We’ll also take you to Notre Dame Cathedral, where you’ll see its amazing 13th-century, stained-glass windows. The Louvre is the world's most visited museum and houses some of the world's best treasures. We’ll take you to the Louvre, where you’ll see Da Vinci's Mona Lisa and other masterpieces. During your free day in Paris, you may want to take an excursion to the Palace of Versailles or to Monet's Giverny. Or maybe shop at the famous Galeries Lafayette, where we have included shopping discounts, or just relax at a café on the famous Champs-Elysées.

Next, you are off via the high-speed Eurostar train to London. You'll have the thrill of traveling through the Chunnel, an engineering marvel! In London, your exclusive sightseeing with a local expert includes London’s famous landmarks, such as Big Ben and Westminster Abbey, where Prince William and Kate Middleton were married. We’ll also take you to St. Paul's Cathedral with its iconic dome and long, fascinating history, before arriving in time for the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace. Your expert Local Guide will share insider stories that only locals know. During your leisure day in London, you may want to take an excursion to mysterious Stonehenge; shop at one of the famous department stores, such as Harrods or Selfridges; take in a West End show such as Mama Mia, Wicked, or Billy Elliot (your Local Host can get tickets for you); or grab an ale at a local pub.

And did we mention that sightseeing with Monograms includes VIP access to the attractions? This means that rather than being like all the other tourists waiting in line outside, you’ll be up close and personal with the attractions. Wouldn’t you rather be gazing at the Louvre's treasures and enjoying the Rijksmuseum’s masterpieces than wasting time waiting in line? At Monograms, our goal is to make your vacation as enjoyable and easy as possible. That’s why we’ve included VIP access and why we’ve arranged your transportation, transfers, guides, sightseeing, hotels, and breakfasts. Add the comfort of knowing you’ll have a Local Host in each city to translate for you, answer questions, and help you arrange activities, and you've got a dream vacation.

Five of the most popular: Pont Neuf is the oldest bridge in Paris dating back to 1578, the time of King Henry III. The Pont Royal, which gets its name from its royal benefactor King Louis XIV, is arguably one of the most used in Paris. This is not simply because of its beauty, but for its ideal location near the Louvre Palace and the Tuileries garden. Pont Alexandre III is an ornate bridge that is immediately recognized for its beautiful decorations of lampposts, cherubs and nymphs and gilt gold. It was built as a symbol of the relationship between the Russians and French and is named after Tsar Alexander the III. The Pont des Arts was the first metal bridge built in Paris. Arts seems to be a perfect name since the bridge has been the source of inspiration for numerous painters and artists. The Pont au Double is a single arch bridge made out of cast-iron.

Top 10 London Attractions

British Museum

Founded in 1753, the British Museum is one of the world’s great museums. With works dating from prehistoric to modern times, it is a showcase of collections from around the whole world. Ten years ago, the museum’s inner courtyard was transformed into the largest covered public square in Europe; it is now worth a visit in its own right.

Camden Market

Explore one of London's more popular markets. The one-time undisputed center of London’s alternative scene still has plenty of delights, from vintage fashion and retro T-shirts to second-hand books and bric-a-brac.

Covent Garden

Stroll through the famous glass-covered market with its fashionable boutiques, cafés, and arts and crafts stalls or watch the jugglers, mime artists, variety acts, and musicians perform in the open piazza. The small roads around Covent Garden are also full of beautiful shops, lively bars, and great restaurants.

Highgate Cemetery

Now a Grade 1-listed park, the cemetery boasts a wealth of flora, fauna, and bird life. Over its 150-year history, the burial site and its natural setting have become inseparable, and it is this that makes it unique. Its most famous occupant in the east cemetery is probably Karl Marx.

Hyde Park

At more than 350 acres, Hyde Park is one of the largest green spaces in central London and famous for its Speaker’s Corner and Serpentine. Relax in one of the deckchairs that are available from April to September, and enjoy a scoop of ice cream or even a light lunch from one of the many stalls and cafés.

Today, it houses 120,000 portraits dating from the 16th century, including one of the best-known paintings of William Shakespeare, a self portrait of William Hogarth, and Branwell Bronte's famous painting of his sisters, Charlotte, Emily, and Anne.

Natural History Museum

This is the world’s leading museum of natural history. It features hundreds of exciting interactive exhibits, ranging from the dramatic earthquake experience to the spectacular dinosaurs exhibitions.

Old Bailey Criminal Courts

Saatchi Gallery - Sloane Square

The Saatchi Gallery is a London gallery for contemporary art, opened by Charles Saatchi in 1985 in order to show his sizeable (and changing) collection to the public. The gallery has been a major influence on art in Britain since its opening; it presents work by largely unseen young artists or by international artists whose work has been rarely or never exhibited in the UK.

South Bank

Why not spend a sunny afternoon on the bustling South Bank? It is an area equally popular with tourists and locals due to the amazing number of famous venues and things to do along this incredibly scenic walk by the Thames.
