Enjoy the light meal and drinks served on board in Standard Premier Class (formerly 1st class).
On arrival at the Gare du Nord a private taxi will transfer you across the city to the Gare de Lyon.
Here you continue your journey by TGV through France into Switzerland, alongside sparkling Lake Geneva to the elegant lakeside town of Montreux.
On arrival in Montreux your hotel for one night is the recently refurbished, belle époque Grand Hotel Suisse Majestic (4 star superior) located right next to the station.
You might like to stroll around Montreux and stretch your legs or board the trolley bus for the short journey to the stunning medieval Château de Chillon (payable locally).
As you marvel at the spectacular setting, twixt sparkling lake and breath-taking mountains, spare a thought for the prisoners of this 13th century castle, considered to be one of the best-preserved in Europe.
Make the most of your time in this beautiful city.
You may decide to explore Amsterdam on foot and wend your way along the enchanting network of canals or take to the water on a Dutch barge (payable locally).
Amsterdam has some colourful and lively markets, including the pretty flower market or you might like to stroll around the attractive Vondelpark.
Perhaps visit the Anne Frank House (payable locally) or seek out some of Amsterdam’s lesser-known and interesting quarters such as the Jordaan or the Pijp.
The Museum Quarter gives you an excellent choice of cultural highlights, including the fabulous Van Gogh museum.
You might prefer to simply amble across the criss-cross of bridges and canals from bar to café and soak up Amsterdam’s truly relaxing atmosphere.
Then make your way to Centraal station to herald the start of your journey home as you join the Eurostar back to London.
Sit back and relax with a light meal and drink as the train reaches speeds of up to 186 mph before your arrival into St Pancras International and the final leg of your journey home.
