Greetings! My daughter (16 yrs old) and I will be in Paris for 11 days in July. We will be taking day trips to London and Brussels. Any suggestions on tours or specific sites to visit. I was thinking on the hop on and hop off bus tours. tks.
I would suggest aspending at least one night in Brugge, Belgium.
It was one of the highlights of our trip. Rick Steves also recommends the city and this hotel. *
We stayed there and was very pleased.
I would skip Brussels and head for Brugge. A great 2 day city visit walking. London cannot be done in a day. make it at min 2 days or more,on and off bus is great then pick one museum then stroll along Thames river by Parliament, Tower of London and St Pauls.
The "one day and see everything tour of London" after traveling from Paris is destined to provide frustration and regrets. Cut a few days off of the Paris visit and spend at least 2 fulls days in London.
