How difficult can it be to book one night in London and three nights in Paris for late March!?
Perhaps complicated by there being another 27 in the group it would have been easier to have beaten the Curiosity space ship to Mars (first French link as March in French is mars)!
But after several different itineraries which included returning to the Timhotel in Montmartre a previous group had stayed at, after wanting to look at four nights in Paris, having been offered and rejected a hotel on the Boulevard de Sébastopol and then another on Boulevard de Grenelle it was obvious FD wasn't going to get the trip it wanted.
Only option left open - change the date. Big shout here for Dot in Travel and the boys and girls of Adaptable travel for sorting the visit.
So, on Monday 20 February the group will leave Wigan and head south. Fingers crossed there will be an opportunity to visit one of the 'Worlds' preeminent design consultancy, one night in our usual hotel in London before setting off the following day from St. Pancras on Eurostar.
Gard du Nord by 2pm, hotel Excelsior in the Quartier Latin, on the BatoBus down the Seine alighting at the Place de Concorde, up the Avenue des Champs Elysées, dinner there and then over to the Eiffel Tower where the group intends to go right to the top!!!
Earlier in the week the editor sent télécopieurs to the Louvre and Pompidou to book the group in and already the Louvre have said oui!!
