Is there anyone else booked on this tour? If so I would like to chat with you before we leave. See you in less than 6 weeks.

    Yep, its been too hot and too windy here too. Looking forward to coolness…. or will it be BRRRRRR!!! Now what to pack? This jacket or that one? Matt I’ve read some bad reviews about certain aspects of this tour…. like the optional extra’s are a rip-off etc. Do you agree with this. Good to know you’ve done this before.

    i have heard that some of the optionals are good, but alot of people say to book the moulin rouge yourself and you only pay about 80 euros. Only thing is that you get one bottle of champagne instead of 4 bottles.

    I thought most of the optional extra’s were decently priced. I know a few people from past tours said a couple were pretty pricey. Like some of the dinners. But not everyone will like everything and do them all. Me personally I will do all of it again. Even the Moulin Rouge. and that’s like $200 US dollars for me. If you can afford it I would do them all or I can let you know next week which ones to do for sure. Have a safe trip to London and see you all next in a week.
