Location visible to members

Details

Travel Divas we are making our debut in Europe! We’ve visited lots of places but this trip just may be the “Grand Daddy” of them all! Get ready for a summer like none other! Please join me in August 2014 for an independent tour of 2 Cities known as Europe’s finest; London & Paris! As guests, we’ll have the chance to explore the full meaning of why London and Paris are indeed a tale of their own and learn more about the rich history that lies between both. Additionally, we’ll experience at first hand the many cultures, foods, wines and architecture each city has to offer. If the Eifel Tower, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey or even meeting the Queen is on your “bucket list”, take advantage of the opportunity to cross it off by joining us!

*Please read the next several paragraphs carefully as many of your questions have been answered below.*

Guest Age Requirement
Guests ages 18 and over are invited to join us.

Roommate Placement
Ladies, if you will be requesting a roommate, please let me know ASAP. If you do find a roommate, and your roommate can not make their deposit in time, as long as you are willing to double your down payment by making a deposit of $500 instead of $250(of which $250 is Non-Refundable Non-Transferable), your reservation can still be made. The total $500 will be applied to your trip balance and will NOT be divided between you and your roommate’s balance unless you give specific instructions to do so. Your roommate must be able to make deposit within 10 business days of making the reservation.

WHAT TO EXPECT WHILE TRAVELING
Expect to live like the locals! We’ll be using Metro just as we would Septa, Patco and DART to navigate throughout both cities. Comfortable footwear and clothing are highly recommended. Also, I HIGHLY recommend making copies of your Passport, Drivers License or State ID and your Official Itinerary. Leave a set at home with your Emergency Contact Person and bring a set with you.

TRAVEL DIVAS BE PLEASE ADVISED THAT THIS TRIP WILL TAKE PLACE NO MATTER THE GROUP SIZE!

A complete itinerary will be sent out and a Meet & Greet will be held 3 weeks prior to departure.

LET’S GET READY FOR PARIS & LONDON!
