Later enjoy a light dinner at an authentic Parisian Bistro. Nothing says ‘Tres Français’ like a 2CV convertible vehicles. Our team of cultivated, smart, courteous and friendly chauffeurs will whisk you around these charming vehicles and introduce you to Paris in an authentic and intimate manner like none other. This fantastic evening tour will take you through the streets of Paris and the hills
of Montmartre where you will admire the twinkling lights of the city below. Meal(s): Welcome cocktail hour, Light Dinner Day 2 After breakfast we will meet our fashion stylist. Prepare yourself to dive into the history and culture of Parisian fashion. We will meet the very heart of fashion in Paris as we follow our experts on a guided walking tour and not only trace the footsteps of all the great icons who left their fashion imprint but the up and coming stars who are “all the buzz.” Next Up... LINGERIE! Much like learning the skill of tying a scarf, Parisian women are taught the art of lingerie at an early age. Beautiful lingerie is 'un plaisir' and isn’t pleasure what Paris life is all about? Our Fashion Stylists will take you to be fitted (like the celebrity you are) at the same linge6

quiche, girls who know a good wine. By this point we will have worked up an appetite and will stop for a delicious lunch alfresco (weather permitting) at a Bistro and watch the Parisians do their daily shopping. Forget the long queues and purchasing tickets beforehand, we will take you behind the scenes of one of the most iconic landmarks in the world -
Meal(s): Buffet Breakfast Day 3 Lets Go Exploring!!! Today we will discover one of Paris' most beautiful and visited Gaden - Jardin des Tuileries. Thanks to it's central location it will be our jumping off point to the left bank. We will walk to the site where many people found themselves a little "shorter on the top" Place de la Concorde followed by crossing (to the left bank) via what many consider the most beautiful bridge in Paris Pont Alexandre III. Once on the left bank we will explore the Esplanades and Hotel des Invalides, the famous burial site of Napoleon Bonaparte. Followed by a walk down the 7th arrondissements most picturesque streets before we make our way to one of our favorite markets - Rue Cler. Traffic-free since 1984 — offers plenty of space for tiny stores and their patrons to spill into the street. It's an ideal environment for you to explore. The street is lined with the essential shops — wine, cheese, chocolate, bread , etc. And the shops of this community are run by people who've found their niche: boys who grew up on
The Eiffel Tower. You will enter first into the former bunker hidden under the Champ de Mars. A true privilege, you will then slip backstage to the surprising and impressive engine room of origin; which still controls the elevators. Arriving next at the second floor, you will be greeted by the amazing and unusual view that awaits you. As a VIP, you ascend the roof of the prestigious restaurant Le Jules Verne to exclusively discover an unprecedented 360° panorama of Paris. We will conclude our exploring by make our way over the bridge to the Jardin du Trocadero and 7
Palais de Chaillot for some great pictures of the Eiffel Tower. Our day concludes with a tour of the late fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent's atelier and gallery. We will view YSL's private collection of dresses, which is not opened to the general public. The remainder of the day is at your leisure to explore. We are happy to give you ideas and suggestions of places to visit. Meal(s): Buffet Breakfast, Lunch Day 4 Coco Chanel acknowledged the importance of accessories and being well accessorized -- or at least being accessorized in moderation. After all, you definitely don't want to look like a Christmas tree filled with ornaments when you leave the house [tragic]. But one thing to always remember is that accessories are just as important as the clothes you wear and the shoes on your feet. Today we will rejoin our Fashion stylists as we spend a splendid day shopping in one of the trendiest and chic districts of Paris - Le Marais. Our Fashion Stylists will take you to the boutiques and ateliers of the many trendy designers that supply Paris's yen for simple things done beautifully (Jewelry, handbags, scarves, shoes, and much more). We will explore this Bobo (bourgeois-bohème) Chic neighborhood after a 'très délicieux' lunch at one of it many vogue
cafe's. The narrow streets, beautiful sights, museums, communities, trendy shopping, people walking or riding bikes. Paris at its best!! Le Marais is the closest you will get to the feel of medieval Paris and has more pre-revolutionary buildings and streets left intact than any other area in Paris. A glance at some of the beautiful buildings and houses indicates the wealthy status of its former residents. After the revolution, much of the area was abandoned by the rich, and poor bohemian types moved in. We will visit what many consider to be the most beautifully built square in Paris, Place des Vo s a g e s . M e a n d e r through Le Marais' dizzying network of hidden courtyards, provocative galleries, and ivy-covered boulangeries. Take in the many aromatic food scents at the stalls of the oldest markets in Paris - le Marché des Enfants Rouges. We will make our way down towards the Hôtel de Ville where we will conclude our day. Optional: Should you wish to continue, we can explore the eccentric area of La Bastille exploring the quaint side streets before working our way into the vibrant, ethnically diverse, and undeniably trendy 11th arrondissement for dinner.* Meal(s): Buffet Breakfast, Lunch Day 5 What would be more mysterious than the secret behind the creation of a fragrance? Get a behind the scenes tour of one of France's premier 8
perfume manufacturers. Learn how perfume has been made through the ages, and inspect the elaborate tools used in their production. At the end of the tour, you will meet the "Nez" (French for nose) and learn the basic skills of composing your own fragrance. High-quality raw materials will be at your disposal to create your very own unique 100 ml fragrance to take home. Next up is the Opera Garnier... Who has not dreamt of having a rendezvous in this Palace of a thousand secrets, and perhaps an encounter with the famous Phantom of the Opera? You will be amazed by the rich architecture and decor of the Palais Garnier. The abundant decor, the splendour of the various foyers and the variety of materials used will take your breath away. The numerous paintings and sculptures allow the Palais Garnier to be not only a theatre but also a museum at the same time. After Lunch we will meet again and set off to the quaint island of Île de la Cité. This small island is like an oasis from the rush of the city. While much of Paris has modernized over the years, the île remains romantically frozen in the 17th century. It is remarkably the same as it was centuries ago. We can stop for a quick ice cream at Berthillon, the long standing grande-dame of 'glaces.' Don't worry about counting calories because we will burn them quickly as we continue to make our way towards the epicenter of Paris, Ȋle de la Cité. Here we can visit the island's focal point the Cathe dral of No-
tre Dame, arguably the most stunning gothic cathedral in the world—and undoubtedly the most famous. As we continue on our tour of this island we will stop along the way to admire Palais de la Justice which contains a structure known as the Conciergerie, a former prison that housed Marie Antoinette before her execution. It will also be a treat to visit the small, uncrowded residential park known as the Place Dauphine. The small park has managed to avoid being overrun by masses of tourists. Because you enter the square through a kind of gateway, there is almost no traffic on the little cobblestone street and the trees and benches provide wonderful respite from the chaotic boulevards nearby. Tonight we will enjoy an intimate dinner at one of Paris' best wine bar/restaurants. Meal(s): Buffet Breakfast, Dinner Day 6 Paris, a city known for its sizable population of “Bobo” fashionistas, abounds with vintage boutiques—and on our last day with our Fashion Stylists we will help you find that special item to bring home from your time in the City of Light. As the capital of fashion, the home of illustrious couture houses and a city with a history of sartorial savoir-faire – Paris has also made a name for itself as a top destination for vintage shopping. From high end to affordable, this selection of Paris’ best vintage boutiques will suit every style.
We will explore the extraordinary Paris neighborhood of Saint-Germain-des-Prés and Odéon. We’ll admire the architecture, browse the boutiques, and revise our French history as we stroll along in these wonderful neighborhoods. Whiling away the day at sidewalk cafes isn’t considered unproductive in Saint-Germain-des-Prés – Odeon... it’s considered the perfect afternoon. A former bohemian retreat, this central Paris neighborhood has since transformed into a destination for couture window-shopping and catered relaxation. Saint-Germain-des-Prés – Odeon’s ivy-covered art galleries, corner patisseries, and centuries-old churches only add to the neighborhood’s undeniable romance—the kind that requires quiet contemplation at a sidewalk café.
Meal(s): Buffet Breakfast, Dinner
You will have the rest of the afternoon and to explore Paris on your own.
Seeing Paris from the vantage point of the Seine River is an experience not to be missed... At tonight's farewell dinner, you will discover all of the magic of dinning along the Seine. At night, Paris monuments are illuminated with millions of lights reflected on the dancing waters of the Seine. Once you see Paris on an evening cruise, you will understand why Paris is known as the "City of Light." Paris at Night - Cabaret, in all of its naughty, risqué fun, is well celebrated in Paris. You will be enticed with this modern, creative and audacious celebration of femininity... all while sipping champagne in the VIP area. This prestigious show has been treating customers and famous celebrities to an avant-garde experience featuring beautiful women tastefully in few items of clothing. The perfect way to end our time together.
