I had planned this trip for over a year with this wonderful France travel agency and will be eternally grateful, not only for the perfect itinerary, but for the flawless execution of every aspect. It was beyond special. Our travel agency teamed us up with the most wonderful drivers and guides, who became friends by the end of our stay! Our driver in Paris, was there for us at every turn; to whisk us to our boat at Bateaux Parisens, to deliver us to and pick us up from the late show at the Moulin Rouge, and he was also there to help us with all of our luggage at the train station in Paris as we arrived from Caen. His unfailing good humor and fearless navigation skills, along with his innately kind nature, made us feel instantly comfortable.
We had a spectacular guide in Paris. She guided us through Versailles, the Musee d'Orsay, the Orangerie, the Marmottan-Claude Monet and the Rodin, just to name a few of the museums we visited. We were accorded instant access and did not have to wait in any of the long queues, courtesy of our travel agency and guide! She was a treasure trove of information and very intuitive with regard to where our interests lay. In American terminology, "we had a blast" with our guide! She had a disarming way with museum staff and in one instance, at the Rodin, was able to charm our way towards an extra 5 minute look at the upstairs of the interior as the museum was closing, so that we would not miss the sculptures of the fabulous Camille Claudel. I simply cannot express how much her knowledge, affability and charm added to our experience! I feel so lucky to have found this company to make my dream a reality!
