About St Paul's Cathedral

As the name implies, this vacation is a sample of some of the major highlights of Europe. Start with two nights in London where sightseeing with a Local Guide includes a visit to St. Paul’s Cathedral and time to watch the Changing of the Guard (if held). Next, board the Eurostar train to Brussels, followed by a comfortable drive to Amsterdam where sightseeing by way of a leisurely canal cruise awaits you. In Germany, cruise the romantic Rhine River, take pictures of Heidelberg Castle, and enjoy dinner with beer at a local restaurant. Stop in the Black Forest, and enjoy a woodcarving demonstration by a local woodcarver, followed by lunch with Bratwurst and Sauerkraut. In Switzerland, visit the Rhine Falls and spend two nights in charming lakeside Lucerne. Admire the Lion Monument, receive a Swiss chocolate surprise, and enjoy the Alpine scenery before driving through the Burgundy wine area to Paris. Here sightseeing with a Local Guide includes all the Parisian highlights and a ride up to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower.
