London with Teens in Tow

written by | Posted on September 1st, 2009

Brendan Vacations has an 8-day London Week that starts at $960 pp dbl (land-only) and includes accommodations, an initial half-day tour highlighting the most popular attractions in the city and tickets to one of a dozen available theater shows. The rest of the week is at leisure so clients can explore as they wish using their Oyster card (also included) to hop on the bus or Underground system.

A more elegant and pricier option is Artisans of Leisure’s London in Depth, priced at $9,935 pp dbl—an unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime treat for a single parent and their teen daughter, for instance. Clients stay at one of London’s top hotels, Claridge’s, and get private tours tailored to their interests by city experts who have received the Blue Badge—the highest qualification in Britain. They also choose from several other excursions: Windsor Castle and its surroundings, the green beauty of the Cotswolds, Stonehenge, legendary Bath, or a gourmet lunch at a manor home. They can also enjoy afternoon tea or perhaps take in a show. The tour is a very flexible alternative designed by city experts who can recommend specific options for clients’ tastes, from museum lovers to gourmands.
