Passport & visa requirements

This tour includes the following countries: England, France and Italy (and Spain on the extension). In order to enter these countries, U.S. and Canadian citizens need a valid passport. The expiration date must extend at least six months beyond the date of your return home. No visa is required for U.S. or Canadian citizens. If you’re not a U.S. or Canadian citizen, you must contact each country’s consulate for your specific entry requirements.

Baggage allowance

Airlines have varying weight restrictions on luggage. Some airlines may impose additional charges if you choose to check any baggage; be advised that you are responsible for such costs. Contact your airline or refer to its website for detailed information regarding luggage size and weight restrictions for your flight, but please note that Go Ahead travelers are restricted to one checked bag per person due to storage limitations on motor coaches and other internal transfers, which may include train connections or flights. One carry-on bag is also permitted, provided that it does not exceed 45 inches (length + width + height). Make sure you label your baggage and carry valuables, medication and documents in your carry-on luggage.

Baggage handling

Please note that porter service cannot be guaranteed on the Eurostar train. Please be prepared to handle your own baggage.

Clothing & packing tips

To ensure you’re comfortable while out exploring, we recommend packing lightweight, loose-fitting clothing that can be easily layered. For sightseeing, we suggest bringing a sturdy pair of walking shoes or sneakers, as well as a lightweight sports jacket or rainwear. If you’re planning a visit to a high-end restaurant or performance, you may also want to bring dressier attire. Also, please remember that it’s preferable to avoid showing bare legs or shoulders during visits to churches or other religious sites (entrance may be denied on this basis).

Health

There are no major health risks associated with traveling on this tour. Be sure to check with your healthcare provider for the latest updates and travel requirements.

Cuisine

For traditional British fare at a reasonable price, try a pub meal. Stilton cheese, steak and kidney pie, and Cumberland sausages are specialties. Sip afternoon tea with finger sandwiches and scones at Harrods for the ultimate in English tradition. Modern- day London also boasts an array of ethnic restaurants, including Indian, Thai, Indonesian, Greek, and West African cuisine. Throughout Paris, you’ll find endless opportunities to sample wonderful food at every price range. For a casual snack or picnic, stop at a small grocery store for cheeses, patés, cured meats, fresh-baked bread and fruit. Sidewalk vendors are known for their steaming crepes, filled with cheese, ham, fruit or chocolate. Flaky pastries and hot café au lait beckon from the cafes. At restaurants, opt for the prix fixe option, which offers a set three- or four-course menu for a good price. Most of the staples of the Italian diet have already become favorites in America, but on your tour, be sure to try those less familiar pasta sauces and the vast range of cured hams, cheeses, rustic breads and desserts. Rome has especially good gelato— authentic Italian ice cream.

Transportation

Round-trip flights arrive in London and depart from Rome (or Barcelona on the tour extension). When you first arrive in London, a Go Ahead representative will meet you at the airport. Please remain in the arrival lounge, as the representative may be escorting one of your fellow travelers to the bus at the time of your arrival. There is also an included flight from Paris to Rome, and an included ride on the high-speed Eurostar train from London to Paris (and a flight from Rome to Barcelona on the tour extension). All other transportation is by private motor coach. In your free time, you may wish to explore the three cities by public transportation. London’s tube system, consisting of 12 lines, needs no introduction. Tickets and passes can be purchased in singles or in bulk. London also has an extensive (and perhaps more fun to ride) bus system. Paris’ massive Métro is world-class, easy to navigate and efficient. Make sure to take time and look for the best deal on travel passes. Ask your tour director which one might work best. Often the daily passes are not actually the best deal. Rome has a very efficient transportation system, serving all the major attractions from the Roman ruins to Vatican City. Tickets can be purchased separately or in bulk and also cover bus and tram travel.

Electricity

The United Kingdom uses 240 volts. France, Italy and Spain operate on the European standard 220 volts.

Time zones

The United Kingdom uses Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), which is five hours ahead of U.S. Eastern Standard Time (EST). Both Paris and Rome are one hour ahead of GMT and six hours ahead of EST. When it’s noon in New York, it’s 5pm in London, and 6pm in Paris and Rome.

Currency

The British pound and euro (in France, Italy and Spain) are the currencies you will use on tour. Better rates of exchange are usually available in your destination countries, although it’s worth ordering some currency from your local bank to use when you first arrive. We advise that you take a combination of bank/ATM cards and credit cards, as needed. We suggest that you inform your bank and credit card company of your travel plans, so that they won’t confuse your international purchases for fraudulent charges.

Tipping

At the conclusion of your tour, it’s customary to offer your Tour Director and driver a gratuity. We recommend tipping in your tour country’s currency, the equivalent of $3USD/CAD per person per day for your driver and $6USD/CAD to $9USD/CAD per person per day for your Tour Director. If applicable, we also recommend the equivalent of $2USD/CAD per local guide. Tips can only be paid in cash. Please keep current local currency exchange rates in mind when tipping.

AWESOME TRIP LONDON.PARIS.ROME 2016!

Where to start- first off to give a little bit of background- I am in my 20's and this was my first big international trip that was not with family. Just myself and my fellow gf. We obviously did a little bit of research but not to the extent where we could go about traveling 100% comfortably on our own. From the availability of the go ahead staff who would answer my ridiculous menial questions to the very best tour guide Pascal Wilson who made this trip A-M-A-Z-I-N-G (Pascal* you the man!), I don't think I would have had this trip any other way. I loved, LOVED Paris- definitely would recommend doing the Versailles excursion. I would also say do your own homework and prepare in advance for the trip (i.e. what activities you would like to do, eat...etc) I would definitely take another trip with GoAhead! Happy travels!

 

Hello! We’re thrilled to learn that you and your girlfriend enjoyed your time in London, Paris, & Rome! We appreciate your kind words regarding our Customer Service Staff, as well as your Tour Director (we think he’s amazing, too!). Our Go Ahead team is happy to serve you every step of the way! We can understand why Paris stands out as the highlight for you, and we’re glad you recommend the Versailles optional. Thank you for your wonderful review. We hope to welcome you and your girlfriend on tour again soon! Happy travels to you both!

second honeymoon

My husband and I were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary. This trip was more than we could wish for. What could be nicer than to be in Paris on the day you were married 50 years before. the tour director was helpful and along with the complements of GoAhead tour had a bottle of champagne in our room after our evening in Paris.The group we were sharing this trip with were diverse and fun all ages and backgrounds. and best of all we just had to relax and take in all that London Paris and Rome had to offer. We enjoyed every moment of it and hope to see other places with Go Ahead in the future

 

Hi Helene! First of all, happy anniversary to you both! We’re so glad this tour exceeded your hopes and expectations – and what a fantastic way to celebrate 50 years! We’re delighted that you found your Tour Director helpful and thoughtful. It’s also wonderful to know that your group could relax and soak up the new surroundings.

Whirlwind tour

This tour was fantastic and well worth the money and time! My traveling companion and I flew into London a few days earlier than everyone else and stayed an extra day in Rome. GoAhead took care of everything for us, including the flights, extra hotel days, breakfast everyday, and the travel insurance. It was a one stop shop which was perfect. The hotel in all 3 cities was perfectly located and all were fairly nice. We also liked that GoAhead let us add on most of the excursions while on the trip itself. We only added the Versailles excursion to begin with, but ended up adding the Vatican and the Seine river cruise during the trip! The only criticism I have is that the food we ate with the group dinners was not the best. The food in Rome was very good, but London and Paris definitely could have been better. However, you do get some excellent wine with the meals. I will definitely be using GoAhead in the future!

Our London, Paris Rome Tour

We had a great time! Never being in Europe before this was the best way to see the major cities. We got to spend a few days in each place which allowed us to get in some great sightseeing. The itinerary was not too confining as to allow us to do enough on our own which we liked. Hotels we good with exception of the breakfast in Paris...could have been done better or on par with what was done in London and Rome. Our tour director Lyn Davies was EXCELLENT!!!

 

Hello! We're pleased to learn that you enjoyed your first trip to Europe! It's great to know that you feel you had enough time to explore on your own, which is something we strive to built into all of our itineraries. We appreciate your feedback on your hotels, and we will be sure to share your thoughts on the breakfast in Paris with our Operations team. Thank you for your wonderful review, and we hope to welcome you on tour again!

JR's European Adventure

My trip to Europe was everything I expected and more. The Tour Director, Steel Wallis was great. He was on hand for everything, gave great info and suggestions, and he was lots of fun. Enjoyed Steel's night out - the best night out. I immersed myself in the culture by experiencing the countries' cuisine, shopping, transportation, architecture, and its people. I felt like a queen in London, Paris was my absolute favorite where I danced in the streets. Did not want to leave Paris. Rome was great also. My least favorite thing about the trip was the hotel in Rome and the inconsistency with luggage at Paris airport. But they were slight diversions. I met some great people in our travel group. Go Ahead, I will Go ahead and book future trips!

Hi Joyce! We’re so glad this trip exceeded your expectations. It sounds like your Tour Director had a lot to do with that, and we’ll be sure to share your kind feedback with him. It makes us smile to learn that you felt like a queen in London and that you danced in the streets of Paris. We are so happy you were able to have these experiences! Regarding the hotel in Rome, we regret that it didn’t quite meet your expectations and we will be sure to share that with our Operations team. In terms of luggage guidelines and policies, Go Ahead does not determine these – the airlines do, and the airlines are regularly changing their terms. As a company of avid travelers, we understand how frustrating certain aspects of flying can be. Again, we’re so glad you had a wonderful adventure, and we can’t wait to welcome you on your next tour!

A Wonderful Time!

I am a solo female traveler and this was my first tour. And I am so thankful I chose to go with Go Ahead. Every detail of my trip was taken care of and I had no problems what so ever. The 3 hotel rooms we stayed in were top notch as was the service we received. The tours that were included and the optional tours I took were the best. I met 30 wonderful people, from young newlyweds to a few older than me and we all got along great. We all looked out for each other. Our tour director, Lyn Davies was the best. I don't know how anyone could be better than she was the entire 11 days of tour. I will ask for her again on my next tour. Yes, I will do this again. Thank you Go Ahead and Lyn!!

 

Hi Joy! First of all, we want to thank you for choosing Go Ahead. We are inspired by our travel community because of fantastic travelers like you. We’re so glad your tour went off without a hitch and that you enjoyed the itinerary, your group, your accommodations, and your Tour Director. We will be sure to share this feedback with our team.

Fabulous trip!

Our trip to Europe was wonderful! We had perfect weather, stayed in lovely hotels, had great tours with fabulous tour guides in each city, and had the best tour director ever! Having never taken a tour I was a bit worried that it may not be well organized or the group may be too big or disconnected but it turned out I had nothing to worry about. From the minute we landed to every transition thereafter we were well informed and every detail taken care of by our wonderful tour director. Our tour director, Pascal, was always available, always upbeat and friendly, and extremely thorough with details and planning. We had so much fun with the friends we traveled with in addition to the new friends we met on our tour. Our time in Italy was a personal highlight for me and my husband. The food was phenomenal at the first restaurant and the evening a blast with local talent. This will be a trip never to be forgotten. Thank you Pascal and Go Ahead Tours!

 

Hi Michelle! Thank you so much for sharing your experience. We’re delighted to learn that you had a wonderful time! We’re very happy that every aspect of the tour felt organized and carefully planned, and we will be sure to share this with our hard-working Operations team. Of course, it isn’t a trip to Italy without delicious food, and we’re glad you and your husband thoroughly enjoyed tasting the local cuisine during your time in Rome. We appreciate your feedback on your Tour Director, and we will be sure to share it with him. Thank you again for reviewing your tour, and we hope to welcome you and your husband on tour again!

Outstanding Tour Director - Pascal Wilson you ROCK

We had a trip of a lifetime with my husband celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. The tour was so amazing. From the time we were picked up at the Heathrow Airport in London to our flight home from Rome, the trip was well organized and hassle free. Our tour director, Pascal is the BEST! He was very knowledgeable and knew each city in and out. He was always there when we needed direction, assistance of any type and suggestions. He brought our group together and by the end we felt like we are all one big happy family. We look forward to our next tour with Go Ahead Tours. Thank you.

 

Hi Susana! Happy belated anniversary! We're glad you and your husband enjoyed celebrating in London, Paris, and Rome.

Amazing Trip

Worth. Every. Single. Penny. I was very apprehensive about doing a tour. I was encouraged to use a tour by my father since it was my first official trip to Western Europe. My husband and I were a little nervous because we didn't want to be bothered with time restrictions and always having to be with a group. Now, we can't imagine going without a tour. First of all, I wish I could give Pascal 10 stars. He was wonderful! He kept us on track but it was like spending time with an old friend. Perfect mix of professionalism and friendliness. Second, we got to skip all the lines at some of the biggest tourist spots. Third, if you want to go off on your own and see some of the map places then your tour director (if you're lucky to have one as awesome as mine) can help you. Finally, the tour guides at each city was wonderful and knowledgeable. This was a trip of a lifetime and Goahead made it a reality. Thank you!

 

Hi Sandra! It's wonderful to hear that you enjoyed your first group travel experience. Although we're a little biased, we love it, too! We are happy to learn that your Tour Director felt like an old friend and that his organization skills made for a smooth, worry-free journey. We're pleased that this was a trip of a lifetime for you, and we hope to welcome you on another trip of a lifetime in the future!

11 Day Tour

Please note: Tour was not for 1 days(see mistake under London, Paris, Rome heading at top of page). Tour was (eleven days) from August 15, 2016 -August 25, 2016. Tour was very good, comprehensive, and convenient. Level of activity was very high. I advise traveler to be in optimum health and physically fit.

 

Hi June! You’re right that this is an ambitious itinerary, as it strives to maximize time in each location. Thank you for your review, and we hope to welcome you on tour again!

A trip of a lifetime

From day one we felt like everything was in good hands. The cities were amazing! I could not have expected more. We were able to see all the must see places in each city. Well planned by the tour. Free time was also great with advice given by the tour director. (David) I cannot express how much fun my wife and I had. It was unforgettable! We will be using go ahead again for any other trip we find time for.

A Geat Trip

This was an excellent experience with Goahead. Monique was our tour guide. She was the best along with the local guides. Everyone was very knowledgeable. I travel by myself and had a wonderful time. I always felt safe and secure. I met plenty of wonderful and interesting people, all in all, I had a lovely unforgettable trip. Although my flight was two hours late when I arrived in London, Goahead had a cab driver waiting for me. Thank you for a great trip that I will never forget.

Great tour, Great tour director!

I hadn't been back to Europe since I was a teenager, and now that I'm in my mid thirties I wanted to go back and relive that awe. I wasn't disappointing. This tour offers something for everyone. Great optional excursions and plenty of free time to experience each city at your own pace. Our tour director was phenomenal, she knew each city in and out and was the best resource we had on this trip. She brought our group together and by the end it felt like we were all family. I look forward to my next tour with GoAhead (which i'm planning right now)! Thank you to GoAhead and thank you to Ali!

 

Hi Billyjack! We’re thrilled that this tour lived up to your expectations! We appreciate your feedback on the itinerary, and we’re very glad you feel it provides plenty of free time in each location. We’re also pleased to learn that your Tour Director made a positive impact on your tour, including making your group feel more like a family . Thank you for your review, and we look forward to welcoming you on your next tour!

Great Time

My daughter and I had a great time. It was great to have a fun, knowledgeable, English speaking guide throughout our trip. Traveling abroad can be nerve racking and exhausting if not done correctly. We were able to see just about everything we wanted to in each city. Letting Go Ahead Tours take care of most of the planning was great. And have time to ourselves was wonderful too. I would definitely vacation with them again. The only issue I would say was that a guide should be very careful when spending to much time with a few couples as it can seem like he/she is ignoring the rest of the group.
