PAR0109 from £435 to £590 per person according to transport mode - sharing reduces this by £50 per person Minimum number of participants will be six - date 25 - 28 June 2009

"Court Dress in Europe 1650-1800" now runs to 28th June thus overlapping "Madame Vionnet" at the Musee de la Mode Louvre - I'm in the process of arranging an English speaking guide there. We will visit "Accessoires de Mode sous l’occupation 1940-1944" at the Musee Jean Moulin and "Sailor Chic" at the Trocadero, Friday 26th June on arrival in Paris. Thus we have a unique fashion and costume perspective - all the greats in one weeekend

Either Sail Thursday 25th PM, overnight from Portsmouth Friday 26th meet up in Paris. Or Via Eurostar, it will be essential to meet at St Pancras International at 0845/0900 on Friday 26th – no later – We have an arrangement to purchase Eurostar tickets in advance. We must catch the 0926 to Paris arriving 1247 French Time. Sorry NO refund if you miss it ! (catch up with us in Paris)

Price – based on six people booking fairly soon, and Euro = £1, I can offer
Via Eurostar (= An estimated ADDITIONAL £100-140 return ) my costings are £ 400 shared £450 single occupancy Bed & Breakfast – I include all museum and metro tickets.

by Ferry itinerary and costings look like this - from Lytchett Matravers Thursday 25th 8 PM via Portsmouth –Caen overnight with cabin to Paris return in van Sunday evening £435 shared room £485 single occupancy B&B and all museum and metro tickets included (free parking here, or collection Portsmouth Harbour) I have booked space at our usual small, central hotel, as it has been an excellent base. I feel we may decide to eat somewhere new this time, but Paris offers many choices, and we may chose to eat out on Saturday. That's right out nearer to Versailles, dependant on our transport mode. Versailles has a new café, no reviews yet. The costs of dinner and evening meal Friday Saturday Sunday are your choice.

As the guide I'm willing to go via Eurostar - a new experience for me – Booking Deposits will be £150.00 payable to Rogers Tours Limited and posted to address below to arrive before April 20th 2009 please; any Eurostar price increases will have to be passed on, and I must pre book the Versailles tickets otherwise we queue for up to two hours – this is the last weekend of the exhibition, demand will be high !
Phone 01202 622115 or E-mail tourwithroger@aol.com for any queries before April 21st please:

I am away on a tour until May 2nd; by which time I expect Eurostar will cost more; ferry is a fixed price if I get three passengers for that route
