Hello everyone - I'm planning a trip first 2 weeks in June. I would like to spend 9 days in London and 3 days in Paris. My budget is $5,000
- $1,000 return airfare
- $1,500 hotel
- $1,000 food
- $ 500 for side trips
- $1,000 for "just in case"
Is this a realistic budget?
I want to go to Hampton Court, Windsor, British Museum, do a walking tour, a trip on the Thames, do a countryside tour including a visit to a country pub, attend the theatre to see a play.
In Paris I want to visit the Louvre, Montmartre, Eiffel Tower, and have a coffee and croissant on the Champs d'Elysses (sp?).
Is this possible to achieve within a 12 day period? I have allotted 2 days for a return flight from Vancouver.
Also, I would like to book a reasonably priced hotel including breakfast if possible, close to the tube in London. And in Paris, any recommendations for a central location?
Did I miss any important things, places to visit, that should be included?
Any help I can get would be much appreciated. BTW, I am a youthful 70 year old.
