In England, we will be using the time during the Stonehenge excursion to visit the museums. So if you want to visit the Tate and the National Gallery do not book the Stonehenge excursion. I will need to know if you are joining us for the museums as I will be buying a group pass. The regular museums are free, it only costs to enter the special exhibitions, which we won't know what they are until it gets a little closer. I will let you know how much the entrance fees for those will be based on how many people we get in our group.
In Paris, we will be using the time during the Versailles Palace excursion to visit the Musee D'Orsay so don't book that excursion. The following day, we will have to skip the Giverny excursion to visit the Louvre. So if you want to visit the Louvre do not book the Giverny excursion. We will have time for the Dinner in Paris and cruise however so feel free to add that excursion Unless you want to enjoy the late night closing hours at the Louvre that day. I will need to know if you are joining us for the museums as I will be buying a group pass. I will let you know how much the entrance fees will be based on how many people we get in our group.
In Madrid, we will be visiting the Prado at the end of the city tour the first day there. You are welcome to stay at the Prado as long as you would like, the admission is included as part of the city tour. The rest of the day is free time so you can use as much or as little of that enjoying the Prado! Then Howard and Shari will be doing the Toledo excursion to visit more amazing art the next day, so if you want to join them for that, add the Toledo excursion!
