France has something for every sense: the sight of the elm-lined Champs-Élysées lit up at night, the sound of church bells ringing out over Avignon, the full-bodied flavor of a ruby-red Bordeaux, the aroma of fresh-from-the-oven baguettes, the feel of centuries-old cobblestone beneath your feet. The world’s number-one travel destination has enough experiences to fill several lifetimes, and the greatest challenge facing a visitor is deciding what to do first. This far-ranging trip touches five of the country’s most beloved regions — Paris, the Loire, Bordeaux, Provence, and the Côte d'Azur — with signature experiences in each one.

It begins in Paris, the City of Lights, witnessing landmarks like Notre-Dame, the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, and the Eiffel Tower with a private guide. Then, discover the lavish Palace of Versailles, an symbol of the lavish royalty of France prior to the French Revolution. Next, it’s on to the Loire Valley, the sprawling UNESCO-protected “Garden of France” that’s home to lavish chateaus, medieval towns, and some of the country’s top vineyards. Stroll through the grounds on privately guided tours of historic French chateaus like Chenonceau, Chambord, and Cheverny. In Bordeaux, take a guided tour of three prestigious Médoc wineries (with a tasting session, of course) and explore the medieval village of Saint-Émilion. Later in Provence, tour the historic Roman-influenced town of Orange with a private guide before a wine-tasting appointment in a Châteauneuf-du-Pape cellar, then take a tour of the olive groves and vineyards, the Pont du Gard aqueduct, and hilltop towns like Gordes and Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. Last stop: Nice, where you’ll embark on a private walking tour of the Baroque city center before an afternoon in Monaco and a glamorous evening in Monte Carlo, complete with dinner on a terrace overlooking Casino Square. This grandest of tours concludes in red-carpet style with visits to Cannes, the perfume mecca of Grasse, medieval Gourdon, and enchanting Saint-Paul-de-Vence. ... Show More »

  • Irene Y. — September 13, 2018 — Europe

    This trip was just what we were looking for, a private tour of England, Scotland and Dublin. Julie C. was awesome! She and I worked together to figure out what my family and I wanted to do. I could have never done it without her! The cars/guides were waiting at the airport for us. Everyone associated with Kensington Tours was so helpful and kind. The location of the 3 hotels, we stayed in, were amazing!! We walked everywhere! Each tour, we were scheduled for, went smoothly, and on time. The tour guides were so smart and informative about the places we went. I didn't stand in one hotel concierge line. My tickets and vouchers were printed out and in hand ahead of time. Julie even researched and scheduled horseback riding in the Dublin Mountains, which they hadn't handled before. What a highlight that was!! This trip was everything I asked for. I will be using Kensington Tours and Julie again!!

  • Lesley M. — September 04, 2018 — Europe

    We thoroughly enjoyed our entire trip to Greece. Everything went as planned, our hotels met and exceeded our expectations. The tour guides were all marvelous - knowledgeable, personal, patient, organized and pleasant to be with. And our sunset cruise in Santorini was superb - first class catamaran, crew and their other passengers were great to be with. We met a couple who also were frequent Kensington Tours clients and we all agreed you are our top choice when it comes to travel tours. Thank you for another unforgettable trip!

  • Ronnie B. — May 29, 2018 — Europe

This was our second trip with Kensington and we will without a doubt utilize their services again!
