9-Nights Amsterdam, Paris & 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.

Sights that should not be missed include: The Louvre and the Musee d'Orsay.

Essential Paris monuments are the Eiffel Tower, Notre-Dame cathedral, the Arc de Triomphe or the Grande Arche de la Defense.
London is undoubtedly one of the world's finest cities. In addition to numerous monuments from its more glorious past, London is equally well-known for its pageantry and tradition. London has something for everyone - wide boulevards buzzing with excitement far into the night, quiet squares and explorable alleyways. Visit this famous city's parks, museums, galleries, monuments, abbeys and churches, skyscrapers and ruins, Georgian squares. Take in such events as the Ceremony of the Keys at the Tower, or the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, or even one of the many theatrical productions. Some of the most exclusive shops are found along Oxford, Bond and Regent Streets. An old favorite and one of the world's premier institutions is Harrods - offering everything from Chanel suits and sliced salmon to caviar and even pets.
Cosmopolitan Amsterdam is most famous for its narrow, gabled houses lining the canals. Interesting attractions include the medieval weighhouse, Royal Palace on Dam Square, and New Church. Its most glamorous industry is the diamond trade. Not too far from Amsterdam are the flower centers of Aalsmeer, the picturesque fishing villages of Volendam and Marken, cheese markets at Edam and Gouda, and historic Haarlem, the main center of the bulb-growing industry. Enjoy the city’s sights from a glass-topped sightseeing boat which passes characteristic gabled houses and negotiates picturesque arched bridges. Facing Dam Square, the Royal Palace was built in 1648 and is still officially the royal residence, although the royal family resides in The Hague. The marbled Citizens Hall with inlaid maps of the world is worth seeing. One of Amsterdam’s most visited sites is historic Anne Frank House. Rijksmuseum, the city’s most prestigious museum, houses the largest collection of Dutch paintings in the world. Van Gogh Museum houses a striking collection.
