2015

Lisa,

I thoroughly enjoyed my French Revolution tour. One of the best I have experienced so far. Flora was an outstanding guide. She is expert in her knowledge of the subject, professional, and exceptionally well prepared. She was patient and thorough and introduced me to several new landmarks and amazing new facts about the personalities of the period and provided a deeper background on items I was already familiar which only a history geek like myself would love. If this was not enough, Flora recommended a book on Marie Antoinette that I downloaded and have not been able to put down.

I had such fun I plan to take the tour again in the future and I hope Flora is still with your firm.

Finally, Flora is a very nice and kind person.

Thanks to the “three of you” for the experience. Please also extend my thanks to Flora.

Hi, Lisa:

Yes, we are back and buried in 6 weeks’ worth of mail and backlogged work items…so much for semi-retirement!

The week with our friends was certainly enjoyable, with the highlights being the two “Behind the Scenes” tours at the Eiffel Tower and Versailles. Favorite dining had to be L’Atelier du Joel Robuchon and Le Jules Verne. The day trip to Giverny and lunch at Moulin de Fourges was also a fantastic experience.

Our time in Paris afterwards was magical. We really enjoyed our little apartment and the Rue Saint Dominique neighborhood, and we discovered so much we hadn’t seen before, such as the Bois de Boulogne, and the Chalet des Isles; Le Flandrin in the 16th (ate there twice after discovering it for lunch after a visit to the Musee Marmottan); Parc Monceau; and we topped off our 5 week stay with a final dinner at Epicure in Hotel Le Bristol. What a fantastic evening that was, and such warm, welcoming service!!

We’re not sure what we’ll be doing next year yet, but it doesn’t seem right to not schedule a visit for some time back in our favorite City of Light. Maybe we’ll look into hitting other areas by rail, and then finish up with a few weeks in Paris; time will tell.

Also, thanks for being available for real-time questions (nail salon…restaurant in Chartres…). That was a big help having a “go-to” person when we were in doubt.

Take care, and best of luck in your new ventures!

Best always,

Ron & Karen

Lisa,

Thank you for your kind email. Our trip was spectacular! We’ve been raving about it since we got back. Though we were looking forward to it, we did not adhere strictly to the itinerary you helped us create. However, we did most of the things you suggested and every one of your suggestions was a hit. We really enjoyed the tour of Versailles, the river cruise, the best baguette in Paris, the bars at the Minipalais and Georges, dinner at L’Oiseau Blanc, taking pictures from Pont Alexandre III, the view of the Arc de Triomphe from the Champs Elysees, to name a few highlights. Anne and I marveled aloud several times at how spot on each and every one your suggestions was.

The vacation was awesome and the only downside is that I am not sure how we are ever going to top our 10th anniversary. We have certainly already recommended you to several of our friends. I have started bookmarking some other ideas for our next trip to Paris (whenever that may be) and we will definitely call you up again when we are ready to plan that next trip.

One more thing I wanted to share with you: We went to the restaurant you suggested for the best hot chocolate in Paris (was it Un Dimanche a Paris?). The host was surprised to have a couple of American tourists and asked how we heard of them. He was very pleased that we heard that they had the best hot chocolate. We enjoyed our lunch and chocolat au gourmand, and eating like the locals.

Thank you, again for helping us plan our trip and for making it a very successful and memorable one.

Regards,

Andrew

Fellow lovers of Paris:

To make your experience truly unique and enjoyable please contact Lisa. She’s the one to provide you with the best trip you could ever imagine and it’s tailored to what you want to see and do. She’s been my trusted guide for my last 2 visits. I’ve been to Paris many times but when Lisa helped me I was able to see things that I wouldn’t have known about on my own. She’s very professional and there to help if you need her. I wouldn’t go back without contacting her.

Dear Lisa,

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for everything! Our trip to Paris was amazing–your secrets & tips made the difference.
You certainly know Paris inside and out!

I wrote an email to you, but it didn’t look like it sent. If you received it, my apologies. I wish we could have spent more time in France. I will be back!!

Thank you, again.

Sincerely,

Thanks so much for the concierge services in Paris. Our stay there couldn’t have been better. I wanted to make it special and have no hiccups and you certainly came through for us. Your advice and assistance in scheduling tours, itinerary suggestions and “hidden gems” made a great trip into a perfect one.

Please let me know how/if I can leave a review on your site or other site as others should know what a great service you provide.

Bonjour Lisa,

I am sorry this email is so late to you. We had such a lovely time in Paris, once again, thanks to you. The hotel was perfect. We just loved everything about it. The restaurants were also wonderful. We could not resist returning to Café Constant one day for lunch, which you also introduced us to. Despite the heat, we loved it all and I can’t thank you enough for your help.

Thank you also for recommending your contact in Barcelona. She is a very special person and we really enjoyed getting to know her during our travels. She planned every minute of our trip to Barcelona and the Costa Brava, and we spent a lot of time together as we covered the countryside and historic sites. We ended up having to pare down the itinerary some days, which was fine. She is a very dynamic person and made our trip great. Thanks so much for introducing us.

I hope you enjoy the rest of you summer. Getting back to states at all? I tell all my friends about you and they promise to let you know when the are coming to Paris. We will let you know the minute we plan a return as well. Possibly planning a trip to Rome this fall — I think I remember that you cover Rome as well? Will keep you posted.

Many, many thanks again.

Hi Lisa.

How are you? I have been meaning to email so many times but we literally have not stopped running since we got home. Wow. Summer is supposed to be about relaxation right…..

We had such an amazing trip. I cannot tell you how exciting it is to visit Paris and know that we are in good hands. Literally everything was perfect and we had the best time. I don’t even have highlights because is it was all perfect. The patisserie day was beyond amazing. To see the ins and outs of such an important part of French culture was outstanding. And the Peninsula. Wow. I don’t even have words for that meal. We have talked and talked about it since we were there. Amazing. And the views. Crazy!!!!!

You are truly a master planner and experience provider. We are so lucky to have found you!!!! We will be back for sure.

I am also wondering if you have any contacts in New York. I am going in August with some girls friends and I am trying to get my hands on some tickets to see jimmy Fallon. I am thinking paying someone is the way to go and wanted to reach out to you first as I have full trust in your suggestion. Let me know your thoughts on this.

Thanks so much Lisa. Chat soon.

Hi Lisa,

Thanks for checking in! Well, we did not get checked in until 6pm the day we arrived so we missed an entire day of the itinerary, but we did our best to make up for it. We had a wonderful time, enjoyed many picnics by the river and found an AMAZING little wine bar right at the end of our street called Chez Nous. The owner is early 30’s and super cool. We stopped for a bottle every night we were there. Definitely check them out! We hit most of the major stuff, missed some of the smaller stuff, and thoroughly enjoyed every restaurant you recommended.

The day in Loire Valley with Cathy and Nigel was top of the list. What a great couple! If we had had a place to stay and extra clothes we probably would have spent the night and attended a barbecue at the Chateux de Pimpean. We will definitely spend more time with them next time we are in Paris.

Again, thanks for all your help. Pictures will post as soon as I find the time to download them all!

Lisa,

Thanks for checking in! We had an absolute blast in Paris. We really appreciated our itinerary, and particularly loved walking around the Marais. It was a huge relief to have structure to our time there, it made the trip for us.

While I am not on facebook, Dana is, and I will remind her to like your page. We will definitely recommend your service to family and friends. I have already started to do so… the response is always “how did you find a service like that?” My answer is “desperation and google.”

Thanks again! Let us know if we can review your service on any other site.

Hello Lisa,

Our time in Paris and the Loire Valley was terrific. The activities and guides you recommended were great as were the restaurant recommendations! The food was fabulous and too hard to resist!!

Thank you for your help and advice that helped make it such a wonderful experience. We hope to do it again in France and the UK. I am not on Facebook or the other social media networks you mentioned but will check back with your Paris Experience when needed for our next trip.

Thanks again and have a great rest of the summer.

Hi Lisa,

I’m at the Lyon airport about to leave for Amsterdam, and wanted to take a moment to thank you for all of your help with Paris. We enjoyed each day we had there, including the private tours of the Louvre, Giverny and Versailles. The 4 hour driving “tour” was also perfect for us, as was lunch at 39V Restaurant.

It could not have gone smoother and I’m so very pleased at how it all turned out. My mother was so happy, which is all that I really wanted to
achieve.

Thanks again, Lisa. Your support and help was invaluable, and I truly and deeply appreciate all that you have done!

Best regards,

Dear Lisa,

Just a word of thanks for all you did to make our week in Paris so lovely! Dinner last night at Goust was heavenly and the champagne you arranged for us to sip before dinner was delicious. What a nice gesture and we so appreciated it!

Our Privileged Opéra Garnier tour with Sophie was unbelievable! We loved every minute and it was so special to be able to learn about the Palais Garnier with her. Really an amazing experience!

Thank you very much again. We will definitely return and will also pass your name along to any of our friends who are planning a trip to Paris.

Kindest regards,

Hi Lisa,

The four of us had a fabulous time in The City of Light! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and I believe we are still all on our Paris high……… even after a week of being home! The apt was lovely and spacious……. a great location and terrific view!

Our days were hectic and busy but we saw everything we planned on seeing. Restaurants were all unique and different, and food and wine choices were many. Flora was an excellent guide at Versailles……. it was a pleasure to spend the day with her. And the SHOPPING……….. fantastique!!!!! We all so appreciated your guidance, suggestions, and MAPS!!!! Your professional services gave us the opportunity to see Paris with ease and with an abundance of information which certainly added to our overall enjoyment and fun.

We are all thinking about our next trip together in 2016……….. A return to Paris is on our list of possibilities. We will certainly keep you in mind should we decide to return!

Merci again for your help. Will check you out on Facebook!! It was a pleasure to get to know you!

Lisa,

Thank you for all your help. We had a great stay in Paris as we followed your itinerary, great walks in les Marais and Montmartre. Louise was just awesome on the Louvre and Versailles tours; we had a great day touring Champagne with Philippe. Thanks again for your restaurant recommendations. We have great memories of Paris to share.

All the best,

Hi Lisa,

We’re back, 9 1/2 hrs back on the plane was the hardest part of the trip. Thanks to you, everything else was easy! We saw all the sites that you helped us plan, we even went to Versailles on Wednesday. The weather was beautiful all week. We very much enjoyed the Marais, walked there several times to shop, eat, and sit in Place des Vosges (my favorite). Can’t wait to go back.
Thank again for all your help,

Hello Lisa,

Our trip was perfect. Your planning and input made it that way, and we appreciate it. Paige has a Facebook and will post a review. We also have a friend of my mothers from Australia that are going and we will give them your information. I know you will make theirs as wonderful as ours.

Also, we have decided to continue our French lessons and will be returning to Paris very soon. Maybe that time we can show our appreciation. My only problem is confusing my Spanish when I am trying to speak French. Pero, me gusta la Francis.

Merci, from Oklahoma.

Dear prospective client,

I contacted Lisa to help me organize a trip for my family of five plus my in laws… so 7 people, 3 generations, lots of opinions!

At first I signed up only for the single phone call, I questioned how much value someone who didn’t know us could add. We were not on the phone for long when I realized Lisa’s help would be invaluable. She organized our wish list into a wonderful and sensible itinerary and gave us many additional wonderful ideas. A few days after our call I received our comprehensive itinerary. I was amazed by the detail!

Lisa not only helped us to plan our itinerary, she booked all of our restaurants, she obtained the tickets to attractions we wanted in advance and she organized the most amazing day trip to Normandy. Once we arrived, used our plan, ate in the restaurants and met our Normandy guide we were all amazed at how spot-on her recommendations were.

Vacation stress can come from difficulty navigating, trouble choosing and pleasing everyone. I would not hesitate to recommend Lisa to anyone planning a trip to Paris. You get Lisa’s intimate knowledge of Paris, but you also get access to her curated and wonderful network. She will keep you on track (your itinerary contains details about how to get from A to B), you will always know where you are and what things are around you even if not on your itinerary.

This service is a wonderful value at any level, we are so glad we made this choice!

Dear Lisa,

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you again! Having heard snippets about your work over the past couple of years, I just knew we had to call upon your wonderful insight and passion for Paris to help us plan our weekend break.

Your recommendations and detailed itinerary were invaluable and ensured we could make the most of our trip – incorporating both the key tourist sites along with some lovely streets, parks and shops that we would definitely have missed without your help!

We had an amazing time and are already planning a springtime trip in the near future – we have certainly fallen in love with this wonderful city!

Thank you so much again.
