Crinolines, Corsets and Sonia Rykel

Ref PARIS0208 Departing 4th for 5-6-7th December 2008 to Paris and back

Minimum no. of passengers 6 : Last time it was 295 if sharing, 345 for single room; As the ferry company have not replied yet I haven't worked it out but Euro is at parity and fuel price is up, it will be more than last time, but if I can get 6 passengers on board it will be close to the figure above I'm still working on half board and will try for a nice spacious restaurant booked in advance for Saturday ! But first, let me know if you're interested - if you would share a room - if you wish to travel by rail

Do please pass it on to others to reply to me at my e-address tourwithroger@aol.com
- able to take Eurotunnellers into accomodation at our cosy Hotel in central Paris

What is and isn't included: The price includes the channel crossing, with shared cabins for all; scheduled museum visit entrance fees and guided tour, the use of the fully insured mini bus and its driver (who speaks fluent French), bed and breakfast for three nights (one on the ferry) and the evening meals to a set price on Friday and Saturday. It does not include lunches, meals en route, or personal/cancellation insurance. (but we can quote you for insurance) Transport will be by our Mercedes Vito Mini bus so places are limited to seven plus the driver.

Thursday: We expect to meet people to be at Portsmouth Harbour Station by 20.30 hrs
Thursday December 4th. We board our ferry and sail, getting up at a ridiculous hour to breakfast on shore. With a visit en route, we should arrive at Paris by about 1700 hrs French time (16:00 p.m. English), and go straight to our hotel for the weekend. This is planned to be the Hotel de Nice, in central Paris, near the museums. We need to confirm our reservations so please reply as soon as you can.
Saturday: After breakfast we visit a special exhibition at the Galleria. After Lunch out, which may be as a group or free time, we will have free shopping and browsing time till dinner. I will guide people to Les Invalides, and the stunning "Samaritaine" store is a strong possibility.
Sunday: After breakfast at 08.30 am we pack the vehicle, then depart to visit the Sonia Rykel Exhibition Musee de la Mode et du Textile. From Paris, we drive to Caen for 16:00 with a light lunch en route; we should make Portsmouth by 22:15 and back to Poole around 23:30 PM

If I have six vehicle passengers I will arrange hotel accommodation and museum entries for other participants who wish to come by Eurostar but I have to ask them to arrange their own transport to the Hotel- the experiment worked last time and there was a special price for these guests.Eurostar passengers should book to arrive about 1700hrs on Friday 5th. There is one change on the Metro to make; or several of you could share a taxi. After Sunday mornings talk we will have your luggage in the vehicle and you are even closer to the Eurostar terminal at The Louvre - you will be back in London before we land in Portsmouth
Deposits to me by October 31st 2008 please - IBAN No. available for bank transfers
