It begins in Paris with shared tours of the extravagant Palace of Versailles and the city itself that take in can't-miss landmarks like Notre-Dame, the Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, and the Eiffel Tower. Next, it's on to the Loire Valley, the sprawling UNESCO-protected "Garden of France" that's home to lavish chateaus, medieval towns, and some of the country's top vineyards. Stroll through the grounds on privately guided tours of historic French chateaus like Chenonceau, Chambord, and Cheverny. In Bordeaux, take a guided tour of three prestigious Médoc wineries (with a tasting session, of course) and explore the medieval village of Saint-Émilion. Later in Provence, tour the historic Roman-influenced town of Orange with a private guide before a wine-tasting appointment in a Chteauneuf-du-Pape cellar, then take a tour of the olive groves and vineyards, the Pont du Gard aqueduct, and hilltop towns like Gordes and Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. Last stop: Nice, where you'll embark on a private walking tour of the Baroque city center before an afternoon in Monaco and a glamorous evening in Monte Carlo, complete with dinner on a terrace overlooking Casino Square. This grandest of tours concludes in red-carpet style with visits to Cannes, the perfume mecca of Grasse, medieval Gourdon, and enchanting Saint-Paul-de-Vence.

How Kensington Began
Kensington Tours is the inspiration of intrepid explorer and Royal Geographic Society Fellow Jeff Willner. His thirst for travel stems from growing up in Africa where his parents worked for most of his childhood, and where he discovered the richness of global cultures. A veteran of global expeditions to over 70 countries, he has criss-crossed the continents to experience the extraordinary. During these years, Jeff realized the vast difference between a package tour and personal discovery - where deep knowledge and personal attention of a local guide can turn a trip into an experience.
It is from these roots that Jeff began building his vision for Kensington Tours, drawing on his years with McKinsey & Company and Wharton. Led by a team of destination experts with real in-country experience (not a call center) and a commitment to rethinking the way you travel - it has resulted in an award-winning travel company that spans the globe. What does this mean for you? It's simple: extraordinary travel experiences at unrivaled value.
