TAUCK BRIDGES TOUR
London, England & Paris, France

MARY POPPINS JOINS TAUCK BRIDGES TOUR

One of the many hallmarks of a Tauck World Discovery trip is the chance to engage with local personalities who bring the history and culture of each destination to life. Travelers to Russia, for example, attend a lecture by a former Kremlin official in Red Square, while visitors to France can enjoy a private dinner with a baron in his Loire Valley chateau.

Tauck Bridges, sister company to Tauck World Discovery and the top-selling name in escorted family travel, is continuing that tradition. This year families on Bridges' "Castles & Kings: London To Paris" journey will enjoy an evening with a celebrated icon of popular British culture - Mary Poppins.

During their four-night stay in London, Tauck guests will attend a performance of the new blockbuster play "Mary Poppins" at the Prince Edward Theatre. The spirited Disney musical opened to rave reviews in December, receiving nine Olivier Award nominations including Best New Musical, Best Actress in a Musical, Best Actor in a Musical, Best Director and Best Choreography. Critics have praised the show as "a joyous spectacular," "a glorious and utter delight," and "a soar-away hit full of wonder and magic."

SEEING THE BEST OF LONDON AND PARIS

The London performance of "Mary Poppins" is just a small part of the eight-day Bridges itinerary. While in London, families will also experience a private tour of the city aboard a double-decker bus, as well as private guided tours of Windsor Castle and the Tower of London. In Paris, families will dine overlooking the city lights from atop the Eiffel Tower, and enjoy private tours of Versailles and Notre Dame as well as a private cruise on the River Seine.

"Castles & Kings: London to Paris" (from $2,995.00 per person) is offered throughout June, July and August, with additional departures in December and April timed to coincide with school breaks.
