Hi Lisa

We all had a wonderful time. It was a great first time experience for the boys in Paris. We were so pleased to have been in touch with you and used all of your fabulous contacts.

Everything went very smoothly with no stress and it has made the destination a special one for all of us. There were many times we said a silent thank you for having been put in touch with you. Much thanks for all your hard work.

Our seats at the Moulin Rouge were incredible by the way…

We will definitely pass on your details to anyone traveling to Paris. Our experience with both you was just that – perfect. I will jump on line and “like” your page. Anything I can do to recommend your business I will do gladly.

Much thanks Lisa, and I hope we will be in touch with you again at some point soon.

All the best,
Danielle and Guy

Hi Lisa,

Randy and I just wanted to thank you for making part of our Paris experience wonderful and unique! We are extremely happy that we followed your suggested itinerary during our 10 day stay.

We dined at a few of the restaurants you recommended, which we could not have discovered on our own. We loved L’Epi Dupin! Everyone was so attentive and friendly and the food was marvelous. It was great too that it was close to Bon Marche!

Thank you! We will definitely contact you again on our next visit to Paris which we hope will be soon!

Sincerely,

Randy and Gina Riesche

Hi Lisa,

We had a wonderful vacation. It was a very memorable visit to Paris. It was definitely successful due to the experiences and information that you offered to us.

All of the events from Your Paris Experience were great! Your visit plan was fantastic. We did not, unfortunately, have the chance to do all of the outings you suggested but it was great to have them planned out the way you did so we could just go out and do something when we had a few hours.

Thanks again for your most excellent service, it truly made our trip.

Au revoir,
Scott

Hi Lisa,

It’s Thanksgiving here in the U.S. and I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for organizing a fantastic itinerary during our stay in Paris. We had such wonderful experiences.

As I mentioned earlier, the Hidden Artisan tour was fabulous! We absolutely loved the architecture museum – Joe made me go through the whole museum – we were there for hours. As a result of the architecture tour, he also discovered the maritime museum, which he tells me was his favorite of the whole visit (I didn’t go with him – I went off to explore the Christmas market on the Champs Elysée on our last day).

All of our restaurant choices were great! We loved La Cordonniere – it was small and intimate and we loved that the chef came out to talk to everyone. We also really enjoyed the champagne tour and the cooking class.

We’ll have memories to cherish forever, but lots we didn’t get to do, so I’m hopeful another trip to Paris will be in our future.

Many thanks!
Barb & Joe

Bonjour Lisa,

Joe and I had a wonderful time in Paris – even though we lost one day due to the storm in the U.S. We absolutely love the city and had a great time exploring new neighborhoods. We had great meals at your suggested restaurants. We really loved Le Christine and had a fun interactions with other diners there and also at Fontaine de Mars. We were successful shopping at Repetto and Hermés and enjoyed “looking” at Bon Marche!

We have certainly recommended your fine services to all our friends and will continue to do so. Everything runs so smoothly when you have planned it for us and we look forward to our continued relationship with you.

Fondly,

Bonnie

Hi Lisa

We are at the airport on our way home. I just wanted to thank you for all your help making this a wonderful holiday. We are planning the next trip back to Paris so that we can stay longer. The tours you organised were a highlight of the trip, as was the concert and the dinner.

We have two very happy children who have really expanded their horizons on this trip.

All the best to you and your family and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Kind regards

Phil and Michele

Dear Lisa,

We arrived home Friday after a wonderful week in Paris. Aside from some rainy days, everything was perfect! We especially loved your restaurant recommendations. Our favorites were Le Christine and REED. Also, we stopped in for macaroons at Carette – so delicious!

I just wanted to say thank you again for your assistance with our itinerary. I have fond memories and hope to bring my boys to Paris someday for a similar experience.

Kind regards,

Lynn

Lisa, you helped us plan a wonderful family trip for my parent’s 50th anniversary! Merci!

All the restaurants you suggested were amazing and I know you were challenged by our larger group of 12 and a toddler. The anniversary lunch for my parents was utterly charming and amazing food. We had our own private room and it was a wonderful afternoon. We couldn’t have planned that without you. Each daily itinerary was perfect. And the private tour guides you set up were amazing. John-Paul in Montmarte, Oliver to Normandy and Laurie & Blair painting at Monet’s lily pond was magical!

What an amazing trip and we couldn’t have done it without you.

Bonjour Lisa,

We had a wonderful trip and much of that was due to your guidance and help. Merci!

I will certainly “like” your face book and put up a glowing review 🙂 My husband is on LinkedIn and I will have him find you that way also.

My parents have fallen in love with Paris and my father even stated “I love this city and only wish we had come years earlier!” This was a total joy for me to hear because he had wanted to go to a resort in Phoenix for this trip and only agreed with lots of feet dragging and my mother insisting.

It was perfect to have the various days planned by you and though we moved around the days some, to have them as a plan was just perfect. We will let all our friends know about your service and how much you can help them with their trips. I also hope we will be planning a girls trip in a few years back to Paris and will use your help again.

Thank you for all your help and assistance.

Hi Lisa,

We arrived back to Dallas yesterday and I wanted to let you know what an exceptional job you did helping plan out the Paris portion of our travels. We followed the plan completely. We really got a feel for the city as we walked almost everywhere yet always had our destination firmly in mind! It was exactly what I would have planned if I had known the city like you do.

I really wanted to thank you for making this one of our most memorable and happy trips as a family. Traveling with 3 teenagers can be stressful and you eliminated that element.

The car service was excellent. Both drivers were professional, on time and friendly.

I will recommend you to anyone I know going to Paris. Do you do any other cities?!

Merci et Au Revoir!!

Lisa,

Hi, thank you so much for all your assistance with our Paris trip – we had an absolutely wonderful experience. It would not have been as special and successful without you!

Your planning, tickets, guides, advice, and general knowledge gave us the extra help we needed to feel prepared and at home in Paris. The Privileged Opera Garnier tour was wonderful and Sophie a real delight! Our trip to Giverny was fantastic as well as everything else. Our private river cruise was my absolute favorite!

We did take a walk down to the Montparnasse tower on our last day – what a perfect way to say good-bye to Paris! I would recommend the roof to everyone – and though the view was spectacular, am glad there’s only one big tower like that. Paris just wouldn’t be Paris otherwise.

We couldn’t have enjoyed Paris as much as we did without your expert assistance and contacts! You truly gave us the Clé de Paris!

Hope to see you again in Paris or maybe London!

Best!
Sue and the rest of the family!

Dear Lisa,

Our Paris trip was perfect, and we all thank you for your wonderful help! We might mention that we really enjoyed having Sophie as our guide to the Musee d’Orsay and the Louvre. She was extremely knowledgeable, very personable, and communicated very well with Adriana. Diane also did a very fine job for us with the cooking lesson.

Our trip couldn’t have gone any better!

Best regards,

Steve, Marlene, and Adriana Golden

Hi Lisa

We returned from Paris today and wanted to thank you for all your help with our dining itinerary. Your suggestions were excellent!!

Le Casse Noix was wonderful. Such nice atmosphere and the service was great. I’m still thinking about the rice pudding I had for dessert.

I’m so glad you told me we would like Fontaine de Mars when I was unsure. It was the perfect spot for our first dinner. We loved eating outside. The service very friendly. My younger son loved the steak and frites.

Le Reminet was such a great spot. Loved the atmosphere and our table was right in the corner as you said. The food was excellent.

Our meal on Friday at Reed was delicious! We spoke with Catherine and she mentioned your name. We told her what a great job you did for us with recommendations and reservations. The risotto with morels was to die for. So was the lemon cheese cake.

La Cordonnerie was another wonderful experience. The food was delicious. Again, the atmosphere was just what we were looking for. The chef was so nice. He and my husband spoke for a bit.

Frenchie was awesome. The food was excellent!! Loved Lisa. She was great and really knows her wines. The place was packed and we had a perfect table in the front. We all had the pork belly which was delicious.

The only restaurant we were unhappy with was Sorza. We had eaten there in 2009 and wanted to go for sentimental reasons. While the food was good, the service was indifferent and the wine list was not good. We would not go back.

Thanks again for all your help and for answering all my e-mails when I was unsure about a restaurant. You helped make our vacation one we will never forget!

Lisa,

Thank you so much for being our “life” line while we were in Paris! You will never know how much it meant to be able to get a hold of you while there and get things talked through! My phone was acting so strange there! It is so daunting to go to a foreign place and try to navigate around but with your help it went great! In fact, it took me about 4 days to get to where I felt comfortable in what I was doing. Now, I want to return while this is still fresh in my mind and stay longer!

Again, I just want to say thank you.

Lisa,

I can’t thank you enough for all the wonderful suggestions you gave us for our family time in Paris. We loved finding your hidden treasures and I’m sure I’ve gained a few pounds feasting on all the macaroons, croissants, cheese, wine and champagne. Our favourite restaurant experience (by far) was at Au Vieux Paris d-Arcole… we adored Frederick – he sang a beautiful rendition of “happy birthday” to our daughter on Friday night and his colleague (I forget his name) danced for her. It was certainly one of our best memories from our time there. Our trip wouldn’t have been the same without your itinerary, you provided us with so much insider knowledge. Thank you so very much…

I will definitely look for your Facebook page and will definitely pass along your information to anyone traveling to Paris.

Have a beautiful day,

Mindy

Bonjour Lisa!

We are home with the most wonderful memories of Paris. It was so very special, and you were a big reason for it! You made me look like a great travel planner, and I truly appreciate it.

The car service was spot on time for everything, and we particularly liked Eric (he drove us to Giverny and the departure to the airport).

We loved O Chateau, especially Charlotte, our sommelier. So young, so fabulous with people and languages and of course, the wine. Then, the dinner afterwards at La Cordonnerie was spectacular food in an intimate setting. They were so welcoming and fun.

The Champagne tour was a long day, but worthwhile to see the area and the caves. The others on the tour were a great part of the trip. Philip was very nice.

I must say though, the Day in Giverny was something I will never forget. I cannot tell you how perfect it was. I loved each minute of it. The weather was just right, and although there was a crowd (couldn’t get Terry to go through the whole house), it was simply amazing for me. The gardens were the best part. I could have stayed all day. Terry did like the water gardens best. I loved it all! Then, to have the lunch at Moulin Fourges — It was so wonderful. Food, people and setting were divine.

There was an artist painting and selling watercolor canvases right on the green space next to the restaurant, and we had a memorable conversation. He had painted a small watercolor with the same colors that had stopped me in my tracks when Terry was trying the macaroons you recommended at Carette at Place des Vosges. There was an expensive gallery just next door and a cityscape in spring green and violet. I was stunned, and Terry had to drag me away. Then to find the same colors in the floral watercolor was just magical. It was so very moving for me, and now I have the perfect souvenir of our trip (along with all the customary small Eiffel Towers of course!).

Sorry to go on and on, but I just wanted to say thank you so very much for your help. We didn’t get to all the places on your itinerary for us, but it was a great guide. Terry walked my feet off, and we ate and drank the best Paris has to offer. We particularly loved the sidewalk cafes where we could rest and watch Paris walk by.

I cannot end without saying how lovely the people were to us. We had very little language difficulty and enjoyed trying our French (little as it is).

We are not on Facebook or LinkedIn, so I cannot help there, but I would be happy to speak to anyone or write something for your website or whatever you can think of that would help your business. Of course, I will and have already raved to everyone I know. Our experience with you was a great one, and again, we thank you.

Bonjour Lisa,

I hope your holiday was as enjoyable as ours!

We had the most wonderful time in Paris. You helped to make our visit so enjoyable and effortless! All of the dinner reservations you secured for us made dining out truly so easy. We loved each and every restaurant. The atmosphere, the food, tres bien!, the warm welcome we received each time made us feel right “at home”.

Our museum passes were waiting for us in our apartment upon arrival. Thank you!
Your help was invaluable and I most certainly will recommend your company to friends and family.

Thank you for all your help and your complete professionalism. We look forward to working with you in the future!

Warmest regards,

Dear Lisa,

Our group has finally made it back home safely. After a couple of days to recover from jet lag and reflect on our trip, we have all reached the conclusion that this trip was a home run!

On behalf of our group, I want to thank you for your hard work in bringing our itinerary together. The tours were top-notch and our guides well informed, professional and just fantastic, lovely people. We all thoroughly enjoyed spending time with each of them. Our dining venues were outstanding – every meal was special and we had a lot of fun recollecting what we ate at each place, from starter to dessert.

I know how much time and effort it takes to organize a week like ours and you pulled it off beautifully. I also appreciated that you were “shadowing” us as the week unfolded, anticipating upcoming events, working out glitches and always available when we needed you. In my opinion, this is what separates you from the rest. Your level of professionalism and caring is unmatched.

When we return to Paris, we will definitely contact you again and we will refer anyone who is even thinking about a visit to this great city.

As we say in Hawaii, “Aloha oe” (until we meet again).

All the best,

Dear Lisa,

Many, many thanks for the wonderful advice that you provided for the birthday celebration week that my 3 best friends and I recently had in Paris.

We were so happy to find you via the Paris Perfect website (what a great organization they are also!) and I believe that our trip could’ve never been so smooth without your input.

The itinerary that you created was streamlined and allowed us to avoid the aimless wandering in a foreign city that so often sucks up the majority of a vacation. You were able to provide the perfect blend of the spots we specifically wanted to see as well as special insider “must-sees” that truly became our favourite memories.

The Metro was easy to use with your simple directions, we were prepared in terms of currency, tipping was not a mystery…these are the types of tidbits that really made our trip seamless.

Thank you thank you and I eagerly await another visit!

Lisa,

I just don’t even know how to begin in thanking you for your help with our trip to Paris. Everything went perfectly as planned and our trip is one that we will always remember and cherish. Everything timed out beautifully and we covered everything that we had hoped to see and more! Your directions, suggestions, and maps were accurate and saved us so much time.

Margot was one of the highlights of our stay. She was professional, courteous, great with the children, and very, very interesting!! We even asked her if she could be our guide when we traveled to Montmartre but unfortunately her schedule was already booked. She was so patient with my children and my youngest boy was quite charmed by her!

The Eiffel Tower tour did take several hours because of the elevator issues but no one complained. The underground bunker was a bit disappointing but the tour of the mechanical room made up for it. My boys and husband were fascinated by the mechanics of the elevator and found that very interesting.

All of the restaurant suggestions were excellent and such a convenient walk from our apartment. If you can’t tell by now, we really enjoyed our trip and appreciate your help in planning. I am quite hesitant to recruit the help of someone without knowing someone who has personally had a positive experience. I kind of “blindly” purchased your services and am so happy with the outcome. I will not hesitate in recommending you to friends traveling to Paris or London. I hope to return again and repeat our experience!

Sincerely,
Mary

Hi Lisa,
Thank you for all of your help! We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Paris, and you were a big part of that process! I was overwhelmed in trying to make all of our choices on my own, but your expert recommendations were spot-on. Your tour guide recommendations were also great!!!
We’ll contact you again next time we get to Paris. And…there will be a next time!!! It was amazing. 🙂

Hi Lisa!

Sorry for the slow response! It’s not been fun getting back to reality! We had an absolutely wonderful time there in Paris! My daughter thinks she’s moving there someday! You did an amazing job on our itinerary! We feel like we covered so much ground! We will most definitely be back someday soon!

Thanks again for everything!

Bonjour Lisa,

We loved every moment of our time in Paris! Already planning a trip back for next spring along with a bit more time in London. We have to say thank you for your help in planning our trip and mostly for your fine suggestions like the museum passes. We passed so many lines during the week and went straight in the front door. Each time, someone joked about needing to thank you!

We will most certainly keep you in mind when suggesting to friends our best tips for visiting Paris and London. First time visitors especially can really benefit from your wealth of knowledge in planning a trip to these two beautiful cities.

Merci beaucoup!

Bonjour Lisa!

We are now home and back to reality. We had such a wonderful time in Paris. What a magnificent city! We loved our apartment and because of the location we felt that we got a flavor for Parisian lifestyle. Our girls have some travel experiences but mostly to places that one would not consider living – like the jungle in South America, Machu Picchu, tropical islands. Paris was really the first city they have been to outside of the U.S. where they could see themselves living. The trip planted a seed for my 13 year old, who spoke with me about the possibility of living abroad. In that regard the experience was very exciting.

I am on LinkedIn but not Facebook. I have already told some friends about the service you provided for us and how worthwhile our consultation was both in planning and during the course of our trip. I will continue to do so as I think you added great value to our time in Paris. Thank you again!

Best regards,
Lisa Mosher

Lisa,

Your plans saved me so much time and we saw things I never would have known about. I will definitely return to the open air market when I am in Paris again. And the restaurants seem to build on each other. All excellent with the next one being even better than the one before!!!
As you know, before my trip, I was already pretty well acquainted with Paris. But, you helped me to see it from a fresh perspective and you organized it in such a way that getting around and seeing so much was effortless.

We are already talking about our next trip and we are thinking London this same time next year. Will you be in a position to help us plan our trip to London?

Again, thank you!
