Let's explore amazing Paris for a week - optional 3 day Amsterdam extension $699

  • March 31, 2013 · 12:00 PM
  • LAX

Inland Empire Travel & Adventure meetup is going to fabulous "April in Paris" for a 7 night trip.

Flying from LAX on Easter Sunday at 4 pm.  So we can have Easter brunch with family

Landing in Paris on April 1st to start our "April in Paris" week.  Spring flowers will be blooming, we will head over to our 3 star hotel which will include breakfast every morning.

The next day we have a 1/2 day city tour, I will take everyone over to the Metro to explain how this great transportation system will take you all over Paris with your 3 day metro card included in the price.  2 day Museum pass will get you into all the best Museums - The Louve, Muse de Orsay, and many others.

Having been to Paris 6/7 times I will be leading optional trips to see Versailles, Monet's Gardens, a lunch cruise on the Seine River with music and dancing, a Day in Bruge, Belgium (home of the beautiful Belgian Lace, Belgian chocolates etc), Normandy and perhaps the Loire Valley where all the French Castles are located.  Many exciting optional tours or just spend all your time exploring the vast beauty of Paris itself.

If you have never been to Paris, it is a delight, we will visit Sacre Coeur Church, high on a hill people from all over the world gather to watch the lights of Paris unfold as night falls.

We will also have an 3/4 extension to beautiful Amsterdam - it's tulip blooming season. Price will be announced shortly as soon as the air is loaded into the airline computers.

Mark your calendars - this is one trip you will not want to miss.

I am offering a "christmas club" type of payment schedule for you -  $100 or more per month sent in to me will go a long way to paying on this trip in easy payments.  Invoices/reciept will be sent out each month to show how much you have built up in your "Paris Club trip payments".  Initial deposit: $150 per person.  Then you may pay as little as $100 a month each month.  Deposits will be refundable up to 90 days before departure.

I expect this to be a big trip so sign up as soon as possible.

 

As always, I highly recommend Travel insurance, it protects not only your trip money but many other benefits - trip interruption (remember the Volcano smoke grounded many planes a few years ago - those people had to find lodging until the planes started to fly again), Baggage and Personal effects loss, baggage delay, medical expenses, Emergency evacuation, also Accidental death or loss of limbs.  So, there is more to travel insurance.

Plus if you buy Travel insurance with 7 days of your initial deposit they add $50, 000 Flight insurance, Coverage even with a pre-existing condition, Missed connection of $500 and coverage of cruise, airline or tour operator default.

Call me about the price of trip insurance - it's $169.00 per person or $110 if everyone buys it.

I hope you will all take the opportunity to visit my favorite city in the World with me.  I love to show 1st time travelers the beauty and the treasures of Paris - the City of Lights!!!!!

    Hi Nancy,
    I cannot RSVP because in order to RSVP you need to make a payment via PAYPAL. I sent you a check, but How do I show on the webpage that I am going and also looking for a room mate?

    November 29, 2012

    • Nancy

      You have commented that you are looking for a room mate and I will put it out to the other meetup groups so those people will also know. :)

    Hi Nancy:

    How long is the flight and is it a direct flight

    September 12, 2012

    • Nancy

      Yes, the flight is a non stop, typically 11/12 hours. I will look it up for you. :)

      September 12, 2012

  • Nancy

    Thanks for understanding, keep in touch and we'll see how it works out.

    July 2, 2012

  • helen

    ok..i understand..i have been to paris over 25 times so the tour is not something I am interested in doing ..just felt like going over if the airfare was reasonable to walk around and visit friends

    July 2, 2012

  • Nancy

    Hi Helen, actually I have just the amount of seats for the group and not any extras. I can keep you in mind and about Dec. could let you know if I have any extra seats at that point. This is a group trip so the group gets first priority. Have a good week. N

    July 2, 2012

  • helen

    I have paypal. You would go to paypal.com my account username is [masked]. That lets you in so you can pay your initial deposit of $150 and then monthly either paypal it in or send a check to me. I will have a monthly invoice sent to you showing how much you have paid, the balance etc. Once the trip price is set (soon!!!) if you change your mind because of price or timing etc. You will get all your money back. :)

    April 23, 2012

  • CAROLYN W.

    How so I make a payment and sign up?

    April 23, 2012

  • Nancy

    Thank you Sandy Habeck for your initial deposit of $150. You are on your way to paying for your trip with easy monthly payments. Good for you. :)

    April 23, 2012

  • Nancy

    Price is not firm yet, should be soon. We can't even request the air until Apr. 30th That's why I said that you can start your Paris club payments but when the price comes out or later if you can't go up to 90 days previous to departure - you get a full refund of your money. :) Stay tuned!!!!!
