Day 2: In London • Visit Madame Tussauds Wax Museum • Guided Tour of Lord's Cricket Ground and Museum • Ride London Eye
• Cruise on the River Thames
Today is an action-packed day in the literal sense of things.

After breakfast we start our day with a visit to the now legendary Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. The museum houses over 300 life-like wax statues of our favourite celebrities including British royalty, such as her Majesty the Queen as well as Hollywood A-listers striking a pose with Bollywood superstars. After some incredible selfies with celebs at Tussauds, we head to an Indian restaurant for lunch.

We now proceed to the holiest of holy site for avid cricket lovers - the Lords Cricket Ground. Here we shall do a guided tour of the Lords cricket ground including the museum. Relive some of the fondest memories of India's 1983 World Cup triumph and witness from close quarters the balcony where India celebrated its victory in the NatWest tri-series final in 2002, each moment special and engraved in the minds of all.

We now proceed to the London Eye that gives you a splendid bird's-eye view of London's South Bank and various landmarks of the city including the Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, etc.

A visit to London is incomplete without a cruise along the River Thames. Sights while on the cruise include the London Eye, OXO Tower, London Bridge, The Shard, Tower of London, Tower Bridge, and Greenwich.

After a memorable day we head back to our hotel after dinner. (B, L, D)

After the sightseeing and a quick lunch, we arrive at Oxford Street. A trip to London is never complete without some retail therapy at England's most in-vogue fashion boulevard. After our visit to Oxford street, we proceed to Harwich (pronounced as Harrich) where we board an overnight cruise to the Netherlands.

Day 4: Onto Belgium • Visit Madurodam • Visit Keukenhof / Volendam & Cheese Farm & Clog Shoes Factory • Amsterdam Canal Cruise
• Leisure time at Dam Square
After breakfast on board, we check out of the cruise, clear immigration and proceed to Madurodam.

Madurodam Park aka Holland in miniature showcases miniature versions of several Dutch architectural landmarks, traditional Dutch houses, canals, parks, windmills, fields and a lot more. What brings this miniature park to life is the addition of human figures that not only give character to this miniature world but also depict the evolution of Dutch lifestyle over the years. Madurodam tops the list of attractions of all tourists visiting Netherlands.

After lunch, we proceed to Lisse to immerse ourselves into a world of all thing's tulip. The Keukenhof Garden is spread over 79 acres and is home to 800 varieties of Tulips and other spring flowers. Interspersed between the flower fields are canals, a windmill, artistic floral displays and flower shows amongst others. The gardens are open up-to only 10th of May each year#.

From Keukenhof we proceed to Amsterdam. At Amsterdam we enjoy a canal cruise watching on either side of the canal regal mansions, houseboats, bridges and more. After the cruise we head to one of the busiest town centre, namely the Dam Square or simply The Dam. From monuments and statues to souvenir shops and restaurants and scores of pigeons and buskers, The Dam is a true reflection of the city's character.

On the outskirts of Amsterdam, is a peaceful and scenic Cheese Farm and Clog Factory which we shall visit to learn about the art of traditional cheese-making and also about the famous Dutch clogs. # instead of Keukenhof

We now proceed to Volendam and spend some free time at a Dutch fishing village. The uniqueness of this place lies in the fact that we are able to witness sea water at a higher level than the land next to it, a phenomenon only heard thus far in most instances. # instead of Keukenhof

We now proceed to check into our hotel for the night after dinner. (B, L, D)
Day 5: Onto Paris • Photo Stop at Atomium
• Visit Grand Place - Brussels Belgium • Vist Train World
After breakfast we check out of the hotel and proceed to Paris enroute visiting Brussels for some must do sightseeing.

At Brussels we visit, The Atomium, the single most unique Belgian structure. Originally built in 1958 for the Brussels' World Fair, the structure was retained, thanks to its architectural brilliance. Essentially, The Atomium is a giant iron crystal magnified 165 billion times its actual size. Accordingly, the structure consists of 9 spheres and 22 pipes arranged to represent the atoms in an iron crystal.

We then move on to yet another attraction of the city, the Train World. "We are not just a train museum, we are a train opera," says the official website of the museum and frankly, it lives up-to what it says. The models displayed at the museum form a beautiful narrative, that journeys through the past into the present and then on to the future of trains.

Thereafter, we visit the popular Grand Place, Europe's most beautiful and buzzing square. This exquisite market square is the main tourist attraction of the city that has often left sightseers awestruck, thanks to the historic architectural marvels from the eras of Baroque, Gothic and Louis XIV that give the place an eclectic character. After a well-deserved lunch break, we proceed to Paris, Worlds fashion capital.

On arrival into Paris we proceed for dinner. After dinner check into the hotel. (B, L, D)

Day 6: Visit Eiffel Tower - 3rd level • Guided City Tour of Paris • Visit Montmartre by Oneway Funicular • Seine River Cruise
• Optional 'Paris by Night with Lido'
Paris is a place that need no introduction.

After breakfast today, we begin exploring Paris. Our first stop - the Eiffel Tower! Because no holiday in Paris is complete without a visit to this iconic landmark. The magnificent structure itself in all its gigantism is an utterly beautiful sight. Then there is the panoramic city view that you get while atop the tower which we shall be visiting right up to the 3rd level.

We proceed for lunch and thereafter a guided city tour of this French capital known for its architectural beauty and its cultural treasures. Our tour ends with a visit to Montmartre by a one-way funicular ride.

While the on-road tour certainly is a great way to explore the city, it's a whole different experience to absorb in the city's character while sailing on the Seine River. So, we take a cruise down the famous river that allows us to grab marvellous views of many Parisian highlights including the recently visited Eiffel Tower, the Alexander Bridge, the National Assembly, the Louvre Museum, the Musée d'Orsay, Notre Dame Cathedral, etc.

Alight from the cruise and proceed for dinner before heading to the hotel to wade off the day's exhaustion. (B, L, D)

Day 7: Visit Disneyland, Paris // Visit Louvre Museum and Palace of Versailles
Today we either visit Disneyland, Paris or the Louvre Museum and the Palace of Versailles based on select departures dates.

A trip to Paris cannot be complete without spending a day revelling the wonders of Disneyland. Divided into magical themed lands - Frontierland, Adventureland, Fantasyland and Discoveryland which are the four magical themed lands and the ever famous Main Street USA - the Park has a lot to keep just about anyone entertained from meet-and-greet with our favourite fantasy characters (Pooh, Mickey, Minnie, etc) to fantasy setups like Pirates of the Caribbean or the Mad Hatter's Tea Cups stomach-churning rides like the Space Mountain Mission 2 or Indiana Jones to subtler and more bearable rides such as 'It's A Small World' to that of parades and shows.

If cinema is more your cup of tea than rides and fantasy characters, you can opt for the Walt Disney Studio Park instead of the Euro Disney Park. The park takes us on a magical behind-the-scenes journey of several movies bringing to life cinema sets and characters. The shops, shows and other attractions, all inspired by Hollywood classics and Disney's most famous movies, are nothing short of a feast for any movie buff.

If you have opted for a departure that does not include Disneyland, you will head out for a more relaxed visit of the Palace of Versailles (now a museum) known to be one of the finest and plushest examples of Renaissance art in Paris. While the magnificent facade and the gigantic scale are proof enough of the grand lifestyle of the ancient French royals, the exotic decor and splendid artwork inside are further indicators of their refined aesthetic tastes. The Hall of Mirrors, the Grand Trianon, the Queen's Chamber, the Chapelle and the beautiful garden are some of the more popular areas of the palace. We then embark on another artistic journey to the past as we visit the Louvre Museum, the world's largest art museum with an extensive range of Greek and Roman sculptures, Egyptian antiques, painting and graphics by legendary artists and a lot more. While the impressive collection sure is the highlight of the museum, the majestic palace-turned-museum itself is a splendid piece of art. Admire the Monalisa painting, one of the greatest treasures in the Louvre Museum.

After a long day, have a relaxed dinner before you retire to your room for a good night's sleep. (B, PL, D)
