We were recently introduced to the boutique travel company Via Rue Travels and are instantly ready to book our next trip to Paris! Specializing in fashion and lifestyle tours, Via Rue Travels gives fashion enthusiasts a deeper look into the world of fashion from exclusive visits to haute couture and pret-a-porter showrooms and ateliers (they’ve visited Lanvin and Valentino in the past), to creating your own scent at Maison Guerlain and that’s literally just a small sample of what their week-long tours have to offer. Other highlights include taking a pastry class at the Ritz with a gourmet chef, a private class at a Chanel-owned atelier and a tour of the Moet & Chandon cellars in the Champagne region. Oh and let’s not forget the shopping!
The tours aren’t limited to Paris either. You can book a trip to Milan & Venice, Rome & Florence, plus they are also planning to expand to London, Stockholm and New York later in 2012. Another exciting addition to the upcoming lineup is Jessica Quirk of What I Wore and Postlapsaria‘s Keiko Lynn will be co-hosting a selection of the 2012 programs.
Start planning now because some of the earlier 2012 tours to Paris have already sold out! The prices are really reasonable too, and include not only your 7 nights accommodation, but breakfast, the guided tours, and any of the museum and attractions on the itinerary, plus your transportation. You will however, have to get yourselves to Paris or Milan first.
Sound like something you want to do next year? Well, luckily for you, Via Rue Travels and Pretty Chic Travel are offering our readers $500 off a 2012 tour! Amazing, right? All you have to do is use of code: PrettyChic at the time of your reservation and you will automatically receive your discount. Enjoy!
