Pre- tour arrival, overcoming jet lag makes great sense
Planning a restful day or two ahead of arrival and again prior to departure is ever-so-wise.
Whichever your chosen airline to take you across the pond, be it East or West, arrival at your first destination will without doubt have you adjusting to a new time zone, which for most is a wear on the body. Most travelers tend to plan rather robust itineraries when exploring new destinations, and it makes every bit of good sense to consider an earlier arrival at your gateway city to allow the body to adjust to the new time zone and be well rested when commencing your new adventure. Whether it be a hotel within the city or a seaside escape, the choices are many, the experience relaxing and the benefits worthwhile.
