Short trip to London and Paris

Jump to last reply

My family, (husband, son, age 27, daughter, age 19) and I are taking a short trip to London and Paris at the end of June. We choose a group tour for selection of a hotel, transportation to Paris and yet freedom for most of the time in each city. Our interests are varied but we would like to see the highlights, go into some places and visit the countyside. We are tennis buffs and want to visti Wimbeldon... please feel free to give advice to this itinerary. Is it doable? Also, we are figuring about $15/lunch, $25/dinner per person. Is this realistic for a base? We have called credit card companies to notify them about being out of the country, printed the 2/1 vouchers and have photocopied all cards and passport numbers. What are we missing. Here is the plan:
Day 1 Fly to London, land about 6:40am,
Day 2 Drop bags at hotel, go to Westminster/Mayfair area; walking by Buckingham Palace, St. James Park and going into Westminster Abbey. Go back to hotel for a tour briefing.
Day 3 Tour group bus of highlights of London ending in Trafalger Square, then see walking Leicester, Piccadilly Circus, Oxford St. Perhaps get theatre tickets or do a river cruise.
Day 4 Tower of London, arriving early, then take a tour to Stratford/Oxford
Day 5 Wimbeldon (anything on the way out there?), St. Paul's, Canary Wharf, Covent Garden ending at the London Eye on our last night.
Day 6 Take the Eurostar to Paris arriving about 12:30, take the Tour bus of highlights of the city. On our own go to Notre Dame Cathedral.
Day 7 Go to Versaille/Louve perhaps Moulin Rouge at night. How hard is it to get tickets?
Day 8 Go to Giverny/Monet's Garden, and the d'orsay, end the day with a walk along the St. Germain/Latin Quarter ending at the Effil Tower eating crepes.
Day 9 Fly home, we have to arrange our own transport to the airport, any suggestions?
Any suggestions or advice? Thank you.
