Itinerary
Click for Dates and Prices Day 1 LONDON, ENGLAND.
Welcome to London, one of the world’s most important business, financial, and cultural centers. Your Local Hosts will help you maximize your time.

Day 2 LONDON.
Morning guided sightseeing includes all of London’s famous landmarks. Drive past the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben; Westminster Abbey, where Prince William and Catherine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, were married; Whitehall’s mounted horseguards; the Prime Minister’s Downing Street; Piccadilly Circus; and Buckingham Palace. Take photographs of the London Eye, the giant Ferris wheel situated on the riverbank, and the Shard, the tallest building in Western Europe. Visit ST. PAUL’S CATHEDRAL. Sir Christopher Wren’s masterpiece with its world-famous dome is an iconic feature of London’s skyline, and the awe-inspiring interior holds fascinating stories about its history.

Day 3 LONDON.
Full day at leisure for you to enjoy the very best of London. Your Local Hosts can offer recommendations, such as a river cruise to enjoy unique views across London from the Thames—Big Ben, the Tower of London and Tower Bridge, Tate Modern, the Shard, HMS Belfast, and much more.

Day 4 LONDON–EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND.
Travel to Edinburgh by EXPRESS TRAIN (first class).

Day 5 EDINBURGH.
Morning guided sightseeing introduces you to the 200-year-old elegant “New Town” with its original neo-classical and Georgian period architecture. In the “Old Town,” follow the Royal Mile and visit EDINBURGH CASTLE, perched on top of a rocky crag, the remnants of an extinct volcano. Tour the castle and admire the “Honours of Scotland,” the oldest set of crown jewels in the British Isles and first used for the coronation of Mary, Queen of Scots in 1543.

NOTE: Edinburgh sightseeing might take place on Day 4.

Day 6 EDINBURGH.
Your Local Host will have exciting suggestions for your day at leisure, like a visit to Holyrood Palace, the official residence of the British monarch in Scotland. Located at the bottom of the Royal Mile, the palace has served as the principal residence of the kings and queens of the Scots since the 16th century, and is a setting for state occasions and official entertaining.

Day 7 EDINBURGH.
Your vacation ends with breakfast this morning.

All This Included
Do you know the phrase, “The whole nine yards?” Some say it originates from traditional Scottish kilts, which are nine yards. We don’t know if that’s true or how the expression came into being, but we know that when it comes to your vacation to Scotland—specifically Edinburgh—we’ve taken care of “the whole nine yards.” And it’s not just Edinburgh. We’ve handled the details and logistics for your time in London as well. On this 7-day vacation, we've arranged your hotel reservations in London and Edinburgh, sightseeing, transportation between cities, transfers to/from the train stations, and daily breakfast. Plus, a one-of-a-kind feature: our Monograms Local Host®, someone who is there for you in both London and Edinburgh to share local insights, answer questions, and help ensure your vacation runs smoothly.

Your vacation begins the moment you arrive in London, as we can pick you up at the airport and get you seamlessly from baggage claim to your selected hotel. There, your Local Host will greet you with a warm welcome and materials to help you become familiar with the city. The next morning, after an included breakfast, we will pick you up at your hotel for exclusive, guided sightseeing with a local expert, someone who will share local stories and insights as you see the must-see attractions, such as the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, and Big Ben. We will take you to St. Paul's Cathedral, the historic church where Charles and Diana got married. We will also take you to the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, where you can imagine what it's like to be a royal. In Scotland, your sightseeing tour with a local expert features Edinburgh Castle. Here, you'll see the "Honours of Scotland," the oldest set of crown jewels in the British Isles and used for the coronation of Mary, Queen of Scots in 1543. Your inside visits with Monograms include VIP access, which means you get to skip the lines! Why waste your time waiting in line like other tourists when you can be up close with the attractions?

In both cities, you will have a full day to explore on your own (with the support of your Local Host). In London, perhaps visit Windsor Castle; explore one of the many museums, such as the Churchill Museum & Cabinet War Rooms; shop at the famous department stores, such as Harrods and Selfridges; and enjoy dinner and theater in the West End, where we can get you tickets for shows such as Mama Mia, Wicked, Billy Elliot, and more. In Edinburgh, you can take an excursion to the Highlands, check out the Clan Tartan Centre to see if your name is linked to a Scottish clan, or enjoy coffee in the cafés where J.K. Rowling crafted much of her early Harry Potter stories.

And did we mention we've included the Express train between London and Edinburgh in your package, as well as transfers to/from the train stations? With the sightseeing and guides we've arranged, the transportation and transfers we've included, and the hotels we've booked, all you have to do is sit back and enjoy yourself! Add the time you save by letting us handle the details and the comfort of knowing you have an expert in both cities to help you, and you've got yourself a wonderful vacation!
