Travel Opportunities with Kindred
MAY 8-16, 2016
London, the Cotswolds and 2 days at the world famous Kensington Dolls' House Festival
Our group will fly directly to Heathrow Airport from their nearest major airport.. .and each of you are met by a representative of the booking agency I use, plus I'll be there to greet you as well. We gather at the official meeting place and, once assembled, are escorted to our waiting private coach to begin our trip.
First stop Windsor.... we'll catch the changing of the guard at Windsor Castle while gathering for a pub lunch overlooking Queen Victoria's statue. If the Union Jack is flying, it means Queen Elizabeth is in residence! For those who haven't been in Windsor before, you'll have time for an optional visit to view Queen Mary's Dollhouse or explore Windsor.
We'll visit Dorney Court, Sulgrave Manor - ancestral home of George Washington with private tour, including the famous bed hangings there, a visit to Moreton in the Marsh, Waddesdown Manor - the spectacular Rothschilde's manor house - award winning gardens there and at Ham House, Sezincote House & Clivedon House and a visit to Kristin Baybars' shop. You'll be overwhelmed by the incredible collections in each of these historic places we visit, be it porcelain, tapestries, furniture, paintings by the Masters, amazing silver, sculpture, plasterwork and paneling.
Join me for an optional visit to Portobello Road's wonderful Saturday morning street fair with silver stalls, antiques, art, engravings and junque - we'll get there early and still have all day at the Saturday Kensington Show - it begins on Friday in May.
The Victoria and Albert Museum is across from our London Hotel, Harrod's is down the street, Valerie’s famous pastry shop - a great spot for afternoon tea is a block away.... plus we have one day with a double decker bus pass for exploration on our own.
Breakfast and dinner included with two nights free to have dinner "out". Airfare and lunches not included as we've found most of our travelers have accrued mileage to use or want to go in early to visit friends or family in England... or just have a night's rest after the flight to get brain and body in the same time zone.
My trips are always smaller groups, so it's essential that I receive your deposit early. If you are interested in joining us, please send me your name and address, and I will send you a printed brochure. Deposits may be post-dated to October 1, 2015 with balances due March 1, 2016. This is a Molly Cromwell Presents Tour so all questions and deposits come directly to me! 703.978.5353 or firstname.lastname@example.org Love to have you join us.... I already have names started on our passenger list, so don't delay reserving your spot!
JULY 30 ~ AUGUST 14, 2016
THE RIVIERAS: FRANCE, ITALY and THE ISLES
It's one of Grand Circle Cruise Lines most popular trips, great cabins - with choice of one bed or twins. As I write, we have 2 cabins on the top deck and 2 on the middle deck, the same level that you enter the ship. Heads up, if you're serious about wanting to join us, any remaining cabins will revert to GCT's general inventory on Friday, Aug 7, 2015.... and after that, they'll disappear in a NY minute! This luxury experience is made so, by having only 50 passengers on each voyage.... like having our own private yacht - with the captain, crew, chef and dining room staff ever present to make sure your every need is met. I advise taking the optional three night pre-trip to Aix en Provence - a charming small town, easily managed. It's fun just to sit outside a cafe and people- watch! Your cultural itch receives it scratch with four included days in fabulous Florence - a medieval town that will become among your favorite places to visit. Our ports of call include Cannes, St Paul de Vence, Nice, Santa Margherita Ligure, Portofino (be sure to have a gelato here!), Porto Venere, Cinque Terre, Marina di Carrara, Corsica, Elba Island, Livorno, Lucca and Florence. Included: 31 meals, including 14 breakfasts, 8 lunches and 9 dinners ~ including beer, wine and soft drinks at both lunch and dinner. Be sure to make your deposit today, as Friday, Aug 7th any remaining cabins are up for grabs.
Call Grand Circle Cruise Lines 800.597.2452, press 2 and give them my Group's Code # G6-20068 and our departure date, Dec 1, plus the name of this cruise.
Can't wait to travel with you again...or for the first time!
