France Explorer

for Brownies and Guides

Making memories

See the Mona Lisa, the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe; buy a croissant from a street merchant, take in the sights and sounds of a local market.
This is France with all your senses engaged!

These first-time experiences are priceless, and great when shared with friends.

Imagine how your Brownie unit or Girl Guides will love the highlights of Paris – and a first-hand experience of French culture. Add in a popular day out at Disneyland® Paris and they’ll be competing for a place on the trip!

Your programme will be tailor-made to suit you. We advise on our most popular trips, on free trips – on the trips that best meet your girls’ interests.

We plan itineraries we know you’ll love.

And you’ll have a PGL Tour Leader to go with you on all your trips. You’ll get more from your days out, plus the extra reassurance for you when taking a group of Brownies or Guides abroad.

Activities

Excursions

Enjoy Paris - one of the most iconic capitals of Europe! Getting out there and exploring the city is the prime motivator.
We’ll bring the history, culture and lifestyle of the French to life to inspire and motivate your Girl Guides and Brownies.

Adventure: The PGL Bonus

The perfect counterbalance to your excursion programme: bring out the best in all your girls with PGL adventure sessions (supplement applies).

An Evening Programme

A French themed evening programme (e.g. making crêpes, snail tasting) means your girls get even more value from their trip.
Make the most of these opportunities to engage and entertain your girls and give them even more memories to take home.
