Itinerary idea in detail

Ask us if you would also like us to arrange your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • Upon arriving at Charles de Gaulle Airport, your family will be picked up by a private driver and taken to your hotel. This evening, you’ll get a great orientation of the City of Light on our Paris by night tour. Along the way, you’ll get your first glimpses of the Arc de Triomphe and the Place de la Concorde, and experience the Eiffel Tower light show.

  • This morning, we recommend a light breakfast as you’ll be embarking on a pastry and chocolate-tasting tour of Saint-Germain. Not only will you be able to try all sorts of goodies, but you’ll also visit the shops where French staples such as Financier cake, salted caramel and macarons were originally invented. In the evening, your family will take a guided tour of the Louvre. Visiting at night is a great way to see the masterpieces while avoiding the crowds, making it a much more enjoyable experience for the kids.

  • Today, you’ll join a small group tour, exploring the Château de Versailles by bicycle. Meeting your guide in the morning, you’ll take the train to Versailles, where you will be fitted with a bike before exploring the grounds. Along the way, you’ll stop at one of the lakes for a picnic lunch. In the afternoon, you'll have free time to explore the inside of the château at your family's pace.

  • Today, you’ll have a free day to explore Paris as a family. You can opt to tour the Eiffel Tower, take a cruise along the Seine, or learn to play Pétanque, a traditional Parisian game.

  • This morning, your family will leave Paris behind and board a train to Lyon, the foodie capital of France. This afternoon, you’ll get a chance to try a few of the treats Lyon is famous for, as you take a private guided tour of the Old City.

  • Today, you'll feel like you have stepped back in time as your family visits the medieval town of Pérouges. Your private guide will lead you through the cobbled streets and around the half-timbered houses of what many consider the most beautiful town in France.

  • This morning, your family will be picked up and taken to Chamonix, a charming alpine town at the foot of the towering Mont Blanc. This afternoon, you’ll board a cog railway to visit the Mer de Glacé, the largest glacier in the Alps.

  • Today, your family will have a chance to explore the Alps further with a guided hike near Mont Blanc. Your guide knows the area very well and will be able to tailor the experience for your family and even show you a few off-the-beaten-path locations.

  • Today, you’ll say au revoir to France and travel to the Geneva Airport for your flight home.
