Travelers who want to experience a more intimate side of Europe—led by museum curators, master chefs and descendents of important European figures—can opt for one of Kensington Tours’ new Elite Collection of European tours.
The new tours will take travelers on private tours with behind-the-scenes access at sites such as Voltaire’s private library or to the Sistine Chapel after hours with stays at palaces or on private yachts. One tour, France Elite; Cosmopolitan Paris & Regal Bordeaux, heads to Paris, Bordeaux and St. Emilion with stays at castles, royal chateaux and a wine estate. Some of the highlights include making a scent at Guerlain, baking macaroons at Lenotre and experiencing a private clothing collection at a fashion house.
Rates for the France Elite tour start at $18,750 pp and includes accommodations, activities, transfers and meals. For more information, visit kensingtontours.com.
