London and Paris, the imperial cities of England and France, have withstood — and often shaped — the march of history for centuries. The palaces and grand cathedrals of the former stand watch over a vibrant metropolis filled with sights both grand and simple. The latter enchants visitors with streets seemingly built for strolling and speaks to them in a language they understand even if they know not a word of French. Experience them together on this breezy itinerary that combines English tradition with Parisian flair.

Begin in London with a privately guided tour of the city’s fascinating sites, including Buckingham Palace, Piccadilly Circus, the Royal Albert Hall, and the West End before heading back in time on a privately guided journey to Stonehenge and an afternoon in Oxford, the fabled “City of Dreaming Spires.” From there, the scene shifts to Paris where your first day includes a private tour of the Louvre and a guided twilight cruise down the Seine to see the city’s famous landmarks lit up at night. Finally, witness the gilded splendor of the opulent Palace of Versailles in the company of a private guide before a true only-in-Paris experience: a romantic dinner on your own atop the Eiffel Tower.

Kensington Tours creates private trips from the world’s finest ingredients. Tailor-made with care by your personal Destination Expert, your personalized trip is always a one-of-a-kind experience made just for you. Expert local guidance and 24/7 service come standard. ... Show More »

  • Durriya E — March 29, 2017 — Europe

    This trip was the perfect balance of guidance and independence. Each local guide brought a very personal touch to the tour and were both engaging and informative. Luiz was a pleasure to work with and provided the guidance we needed to create an itinerary that suited our interest and the pace we wanted.

  • Gary J — March 29, 2017 — Europe

    We wanted a quality trip for our anniversary; and got more than what we expected. Well planned, well thought organized and well executed. We will definitely use Kensington tours for any trips in the future

  • Pamela P. — March 24, 2017 — Europe

    I had never had the desire to visit London. After going, I am so glad I did. Kensington Tours made this once in a lifetime trip one I rate as the best. I have done some extensive traveling and this company made sure every detail was in place.

  • Maria L — February 07, 2017 — Europe

    This Trip was amazing! We enjoyed every minute and second of it... Thank you.

  • Joy L. — August 10, 2016 — Europe

    Private tours were the best. Enjoyed being able to stop and see sights big groups wouldn't be able to do.

  • Tilda B. — August 10, 2016 — Europe

    Our agent Enrique was phenomenal. He booked every aspect of our trip, from transportation, tour and hotel. All we had to do was show up. Best vacation!!

  • Gary C. — August 10, 2016 — Europe

    My excellent experience with Kensington Tours started with Michelle Callaghan, a consultant for Ireland and UK, followed by a very friendly and knowledgeable person in KT Air, ending with our guide Paul Wilson who my whole family loved. I am lucky enough to have traveled internationally for both business and pleasure for decades, therefore I have to compare. The entire experience with Kensington, from start to finish, was a 10.

  • Elizabeth M. — August 10, 2016 — Europe

    I love being able to call Kensington and tell their agents where I want to go and what I'd like to see when at my destination. All I do is pack my suitcase and from the moment my plane lands, I am taken care of and looked after. It turns a "trip" into a "vacation" as well. It's hassle free, first rate.

  • Margarette H. — August 10, 2016 — Europe

    We enjoyed the trip immensely! All our tour guides did a good job. I'd like to especially call out Alexandra from Lisbon and Javier from Toledo as outstanding. Our primary drivers Jose in Lisbon and Muhammad in Morocco were also outstanding! Special appreciation for our Riad accommodations in Marrakech which was magical!

  • Noor K. — August 10, 2016 — Europe

    Very well organized tour . I will recommend it to every one who wants to travel. Excellent tour.
