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.
Phil and Michele
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.

Just got back from a wonderful 10 day visit. The visit and experience with Your Paris Experience made the trip the best ever.
Excerpt from Your Paris Experience Facebook page:
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.
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.
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!!
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!
Sue and the rest of the family!
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!
Steve, Marlene, and Adriana Golden
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!
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.
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,
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.
Excerpt from Your Paris Experience Facebook page:
Lisa is just too cooooolll !! My wife and I just returned from 2 glorious weeks in Paris and Your Paris Experience was the foundation to the best time we have ever had !!!
Thank you Little Badger Buddy !!
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!
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,[Privacy Requested]
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!
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!
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. 🙂
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!
Pat & Jen Sweeney
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.

Excerpt from Your Paris Experience Facebook page:
Lisa and Your Paris Experience is the best investment you can make to ensure an absolutely brilliant trip to Paris!
Merci for all your assistance! We had the most magical trip thanks to your advice, assistance and planning. I most highly recommend your services. Not only were they first-rate but also friendly, easy to work with, fantastic follow up and follow through. You are the best!
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!
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!
We finally arrived home in time for Christmas with the extended family.
Thank you for your help in planning our trip. All of the services you arranged for us went off without a hitch and we believe they enriched our experience of Paris.
We are agreed that the day we spent with Diane and Eric was the standout. Diane put a great deal of effort into the time she spent in the kitchen with our daughters Kate and Maddie. We enjoyed a delightful lunch. Eric was a charming host. A very good time was had by all!
Thank you again,
We are back in Mexico after a wonderful experience in Paris. I just want you to know that our trip exceeded our expectations and that we had a great time. The instructions were easy to follow and complete, and we were expected everywhere we were told to go.
The highlights are too numerous to mention but everyone that you set up to see that we had fun were most thorough and professional. The restaurants were magnificent and we really had fun at them all, especially memorable is Aux Vieux d’Arcole. We met chef Christian Constant and enjoyed his places very much and the Il Vino d’Enrico Bernardo was great fun too. The trip to London came off without a hitch as well.
We had a wonderful time in Paris and we enjoyed the restaurants. Our favourites were Le Christine, Chez l’Ami Jean and Café Constant (who wouldn’t like “head of veal” – brains, tongue and face). Special mention, though, goes to Les Bouquinistes de Guy Savoy. They knew you had sent us, gave us a table at the front window facing Notre Dame and served delicious food. I will not forget the pigeon with foie gras, which I thought would be cut into pieces and service with foie gras on the side. But no. The meat had been cut from the bird, mixed with foie gras and shaped into a patty like a hamburger, then encased in puff pastry. It was served with a stock reduction and chanterelle mushrooms. Fantastic.
Thank you for all your help; we will let you know when we return to one of our favourite cities.
It was an amazing week thanks to all of your wonderful help and recommendations! One of our best days was the Fat Tire Bike Tours bicycle tour to Versailles – PERFECT family activity. I don’t know who enjoyed it more – us or the kids! Billy, our tour guide, was AWESOME!!!! Leo was also very lovely and we enjoyed our time with her at the Louvre.
I am happy to ‘Like’ your page on Facebook and will readily recommend you to any friends we have travelling to Paris!
Thanks again for helping make our trip so memorable!!
Thank you! Everything was really great – the days that you had planned for us were interesting and kept us very busy. We had a couple of days where we couldn’t get through everything (one because we took a detour and went to the top of the Eiffel Tower in the morning!) but all the places we did visit were well worth the trip. The restaurants were very nice as well and we were very glad that you had made the reservations for us once the end of the day came!
I will definitely recommend your company to anyone I know who is planning a trip over there – I know a few families already who are waiting to hear how our trip went with the kids!
Thanks again for all your help!
I am so sorry that I have note written to thank you for your marvelous help on our trip to Paris. I am sure you have forgotten by now, but we will always remember our wonderful time and the great things that you made happen for us.
The apartment was perfect for our girls trip (mother, daughter and two granddaughters). Our guide to the Louvre was just perfect and Michael did a superb job taking us to the Loire Valley (when we changed our itinerary that am) he made the trip so perfect as if he had done it daily.
My granddaughters will forever remember this trip and that is what I had hoped for. Sorry to be so late in my comments but things have been hectic since my return. I do not do Facebook but will always be happy to give you the highest recommendation possible.
Have a lovely summer and hopefully I can return this time with some of my lady friends.

Excerpt from the Your Paris Experience Facebook Page:
Have been home for about a month and am finally taking the time to write. Lisa arranged some really unique experiences for us this time. Underground of the Eiffel Tower, Josephine and Napoleon walk (lots of fun on the walk with Leontine, our guide), private guide to Giverny and Normandy. Just the car service back to the airport the day we left for home was great. Pascal knew how to get around all of the traffic jams and he took us right to the American Airlines counter. Worth every Euro!
Having Lisa available to email while we were in Paris to recommend restaurants and just ask questions was fantastic. I highly recommend her concierge service.
Thank you so much for the fantastic job you did helping us plan our Spring Break in Paris. As this was the first time we visited the City of Light, and the first time my daughters crossed the Atlantic and visited the European Continent, we wanted to make sure it was a trip they would remember, fondly, for a lifetime. Mission accomplished!
As someone who has travelled extensively, both for business and for pleasure, I have worked with many travel professionals. I have been blessed with the opportunity to visit some of the world’s most significant historical sites, dine at some of the most exclusive restaurants and stay at some of the most fabulous resorts and hotels. So, I came to you with very high expectations for the trip we planned together.
First, I want to thank you for the approach you took to setting up our trip. You asked the right questions, took the time to listen – really listen – and worked hard to discover my family’s specific interests. It was refreshing to work with someone who truly wanted to design an experience tailored specifically for us. That has not always been my experience with Concierge Service.
Second, thank you for the way you managed the details. There was clearly far more to see and do in and around Paris than we could manage in the 7 days we were there. Without your help we would have missed a lot. It is easy to get overwhelmed in a place with so much to explore and discover. This was quite a unique experience for me with the level of detail you delivered. Instead of setting up the major sightseeing activities and providing dinner reservations, you gave us so much more. The inside information you gave us on the neighborhoods around our apartment, and nearby on the places you knew we would be visiting each day – along with either walking directions and information on nearby Metro stops – was invaluable!
Finally, thank you so much for being accessible to us (even early in the morning!) during our trip when we needed you.
Lisa, it has been my experience that there are very few true professionals in this world. You are clearly one of them, and I feel fortunate that I had your help in planning what turned out to be one of the most fantastic vacation experiences my family has shared. I will certainly recommend you very highly to anyone I know who is planning to visit Paris!
Warm personal regards,
Mark E. Platt, President & C.E.O. Multistack LLC Sparta, WI
I wanted to drop you a note and say thank you for your knowledge and assistance with our trip of a lifetime. Your suggestions were excellent. Everything went smoothly using your Gold Concierge Service and your plan was A+. We had a fantastic time and you certainly have my recommendation.
Leontine was a tremendous guide for our trip to Versailles. It made a huge difference in our experience. We just clicked as a group. We managed to rent a golf cart for a trip around the gardens and back. I can’t imagine doing a trip to Versailles without her.
The tour of Vimy was excellent. As a Canadian it was a sobering experience. Terry was a great guide.
In both cases, it was a pleasure to meet and work with people who live and work in Paris and the area. The airport transfers went without a hitch. Everyone was on time and the drivers were very pleasant and professional. I can understand when you use their services.
I was quite pleased with the Paris Perfect people as well. The apartment was excellent. I can’t imagine staying in Paris any other way.
Overall the trip was fantastic for us and I don’t think we would have had the experiences we had without your planning and assistance.
Thank you again,
Ken Malec, Windsor, Ontario
Good morning Lisa,
We had a wonderful visit to Paris and much of our enjoyment was thanks to your accomplished arrangements. Dinner at each of the restaurants we selected and you reserved tables for, was a wonderful and very special experience. Le Chateaubriand was very hip and the food was so interesting and good. Taillevent was a night to remember – the beautiful setting, unmatched attention to detail, and the food! L’Atelier du Joel Robuchon – so very impressive and one of our most memorable meals.
We will recommend your very accommodating service to everyone we know who travels to Paris!
Ann (last name requested withheld)
We had an amazing time in Paris! Thank you for all of your suggestions. We were able to see most of what you had put in our itinerary. We at so many good meals, but had to cancel Guy Savoy. One of our favourite places for lunch was by the Louvre, La Petit Machon. Tell your clients to for there for a late lunch after a morning of art, it was wonderful. We also had a few nice meals at the Christian Constant cafe and restaurant just down the street. We ate pastries at Fauchon, La Duree and Gerald Murot. We thought Gerard Murot was overall the best.
Our tour to Normandy was excellent, as was Philippe. The apartment and people of Paris Perfect made the trip most enjoyable.
All around one of our best family vacations.
We had an absolutely wonderful time in Paris! We so appreciated all of your help and assistance with our reservations and plans. Sunday, we had a marvelous time in the Marais (at your suggestion) and truly wished we had more time to explore this fascinating area. We managed to do some excellent shopping in the Marais and loved Musee Carnavalet.
We enjoyed every dining experience you recommended and were treated very nicely as well, especially at Les Bouquinistes de Guy Savoy on our last evening.
I have forwarded all of your information to my friends who are travelling to Paris, suggesting that you will be extremely helpful with making all the necessary arrangements.
I hope to get back to Paris soon as it is such a lovely place.
All the best,
Thank you for your follow up email, that was kind of you. I am sorry that I have no dealings with Facebook or LinkedIn. However, I will HIGHLY recommend you and your company to anyone I know travelling to Paris.
First, let me say I LOVE MY HAIRCUT AND COLOR that you arranged for me @Elia Thierry Salon. What a fabulous experience!
Second, let me say that my brothers and I very much enjoyed the tour to Normandy. The guide was personable, knowledgeable and caring. Now that we have made the trip we realise it would have been impossible to do on our own. We also had a fantastic lunch in Arromanches with the group.
Please feel free to share my comments with any clients. What’s not to love about a week in Paris??? My “Happy Place” on the planet.
A bientot et merci,
Bonnie Curry Whitehead
We’re safely and happily back in the US, and I just wanted to follow-up about our activities. As I told you on the phone while we were still in Paris, the Behind the Scenes tour of the Eiffel Tower was wonderful, and Olivier was just fantastic. Every restaurant you recommended was perfection from the fabulous tables and service to the delicious food, especially at Le Grand Colbert on New Year’s Eve…over the top spectacular. And, of course, you know Margot is our new favourite! You can be assured I will advise all my friends when visiting Paris to call you for your expertise. In fact, my friend is visiting in June with her sisters and daughters so I’ll be sending your information her way.
Thank you for all the wonderful recommendations, Lisa. It is a trip we will always remember with great affection and happiness.
Excerpt from the Your Paris Experience Facebook page:
We just returned from the most amazing holiday in France! Lisa Buros worked with us prior to our trip making suggestions and then coordinating our activities. I will tell you that all our plans were executed flawlessly! Our experience took us from Normandy to Champagne, the Paris Opera, a Grand Crus wine tasting and French cooking lessons.
Lisa was completely available throughout our trip which took a lot of the stress off of us. We feel as though we had the opportunity to really experience Paris and some of the countryside.
I highly recommend Your Paris Experience and Lisa Buros to all!
We wanted to thank you for all your assistance in planning our trip to Paris. Everything you helped us put together went so smoothly and really enhanced our experience. The guides were terrific, the tours you recommended were enjoyed by our entire family and all the restaurant reservations were in place. We additionally appreciated your restaurant recommendations and tips about the neighbourhood.
I am pleased to recommend your service in the future.
With appreciation, merci mille fois,
I hope all is well. We had a great time in Paris! Your itinerary was very thoughtful and well organised, so for most days we did all sorts of things, i.e. good balance. We found it was not easy to get taxis so we walked a lot. It turned out that the most enjoyable shopping experiences were found while exploring the neighbourhood on foot. Your suggestions about routes and different neighbourhoods was very helpful.
We had a great time in the Marais Sunday afternoon even though the weather was very grey and cold. Without your help we would not have experienced a lot of these streets and local scenes. The Raspail open market on Tuesday morning was another excellent suggestion. The seafood, vegetables and fruits were so fresh we bought as much as we could manage to carry. Everyone raved about the fresh quality and said we had not come across such quality in London or Shanghai.
All in all, thanks very much for organising such a wonderful itinerary and for providing tips for, for most of us, our first trip to Paris. We’ve done so much in one week and everyone got to see what they wanted to see.
Thanks again and best regards,
Sadly, we bid Paris “adieu” last Thursday, and we have resumed our normal lives back home in California. We just wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed all your tours and restaurant recommendations.
Philippe Brimont was an exceptional guide, and made our visits to Normandy, Giverny and Champagne memories of a lifetime. He really is a student of history, and made the D-Day invasion come to life for us. His knowledge of the Champagne region, having been born there, is unsurpassed.
We very much enjoyed all the restaurants you recommended. Each time we presented ourselves, we were treated like VIP’s and given exceptional tables. You must have outstanding relationships with these establishments!
The two ‘Behind the Scenes’ tours you arranged were well worth the money and very interesting, especially the Eiffel Tower conducted by our budding opera singer guide, Guillaume.
In summary, we are so glad that we decided to use your Silver Concierge Service to enhance our trip to Paris. The value received for the Euro spent is a true value, especially considering the 1 1/2 hours you spent with us on our Skype call getting to know us and our likes and dislikes.
Thanks again. Maybe we’ll get to have that drink together someday, after all.

I want to thank you again. The dinner cruise was a home run and the itinerary worked out great. We toured with Scott and he was great. All of us found our more of interest about the building, the Louvre, than we expected. We took Scott to lunch at Angelina’s and then walked down the famed rue St. Honore, which my wife, in particular loved.
Since I did my homework before coming to Paris, thanks to you, it was really quite fun and efficient. Don’t hesitate to use me as a reference.
I just wanted to say thank you again for all the suggestions and help in our wine tastings, cooking class and driving services. O Chateau was amazing and incredibly informative. My husband and I ended up having a cafe with our sommelier after class and he recommended a ton of awesome places to eat, drink wine and party in Paris! Also, Jane from La Cuisine was a doll! My husband and I had a blast cooking and the food we cooked tasted incredible! And lastly, everyone from Victor’s cab service were friendly and were very prompt.
Overall we had an amazing time in Paris and are definitely looking to come back soon, this time with our three boys! So you can count on my contacting you for what to do in Paris with children!
Thank you again, Lisa! Take care,
Edna De Guia
Home in Sydney again and glad we have the special memories of Paris to keep us going back at work.
From the moment we made contact with you the friendliness and the very personalized service has been fabulous. You really took the time to find out the types of things Alec and I were interested in whilst we were in Paris.
You went out of your way to help us plan very special experiences e.g. the private tour of the Eiffel Tower to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary, the restaurants that you researched and booked for us, the wine tasting class where we gained a whole new respect for the culture and traditions behind French wine, and the fabulous day visiting produce places, markets and cooking with the wonderful Diane.
Thank you so much…you are just so wonderful!
Alec and Jenny Bashinsky
Thanks for all of your great help in planning our trip adventures. The tours of Versailles and the Louvre were very fun and informative. I have to say that the night bike tour with Fat Tire Bike Tours was probably the highlight for all of us. Your recommendation to do that early in the trip was a good idea.
Thanks again for the education you gave us prior to our travels. It went a long way to giving us a picture of what to expect and to reduce any anxieties we had about visiting a place with so much to see and do. Essentially you “shrunk” the city for us which was quite helpful for a family of five with three teenagers.
Thanks again, Lisa. Have a great summer!

I wanted to thank you for all your help in setting up our itinerary and reservations. We loved Paris and can now understand how she stole your heart!
The City Segway Tour was a blast and we were treated extra special since you made our reservation. Our dinner cruise on the Bateaux Parisiens was the absolute highlight with the Premier Service. Our table was front and center of the boat – everyone must experience this cruise at least once!
For your clients with iPhones, the Metro application is a must. Just put in a start point and end point and it tells you exactly what lines to take. We zipped around the metro like locals!
Hopefully we will be back to Paris in the near future. Until then, thank you for all your help – your expertise is priceless!

We really want to thank you again for all of your help. You were so patient and kind, and so knowledgeable!
Trish, our private Louvre guide, was great! You have fantastic contacts in Paris!! Chez Janou was close to our apartment and it was AMAZING! La Ciel de Paris on Saturday was gorgeous – the table was fantastic!
Thank you so much for all of your help! We had a fantastic time – and thanks to you – felt very comfortable in Paris!
Again, thank you so much – the trip was terrific!!

Our private tour to Honfleur with Auralie was simply outstanding. She was warm, personal, quick to identify our interests and made sure she showed us both the obvious and things off the beaten path. We couldn’t recommend her highly enough.
Overall, we enjoyed our other tours immensely. Scott, Bubba and Jackson from Fat Tire Bike Tours were terrific, Trish from our private Louvre tour was outstanding. Everything went smoothly – trains to pick-ups, etc.
We couldn’t have been happier working with you – it was a real pleasure! I would refer you on in a heartbeat!

We arrived back in New York and want to thank you for helping to make our time in Paris such a wonderful one! We were very pleased with Le Christine. We got a nice table at La Ciel de Paris and the view was great, service decent – thought the food was only so-so (your other restaurants set such a high bar!). Overall, we were very pleased with the varied dining experiences you provided for us!

I wanted to let you know that the party really enjoyed the Paris trip and I wanted to thank you for all of your help and suggestions. The private yacht trip up the Seine was their particular favourite, but they loved the whole trip and it was a great success.

We had such a wonderful time! All of the arrangements you made for us were great! The apartment worked out very well for us, good location. My favourite dinner was La Cordonnerie, Dave’s was Le Coupe Chou.
We’d love to come back to Paris so when we do we will give you a call!

Thank you again for helping us plan and experience a trip of a lifetime! Even the kids enjoyed it…
My husband and I had a wonderful time in Paris. I wanted to stay on, but alas we had to return home. We will be back though. All of your assistance in organising the days for us was greatly appreciated. We saw things that we would have missed in Paris without your suggested places to visit.
Thank you so much for sharing your favourite places in your city; and I can truly understand why you love Paris so much. I am on Facebook and made the connection to Your Paris Experience.
Thank you again and I am sure you will hear from me sometime in the future.
My very best regards,
Thank you again for all of the restaurant recommendations and reservations, the plush robes, and organising our tour with Antoinette. With your help, we had a fabulous time in Paris!
I just wanted to let you know how thankful we are for all of your hard work to make our honeymoon so special. The trip was fantastic and we had a wonderful time, thanks in large part to your hard work. London and Dublin were great, but nothing compares to Paris. I can see why you love it so much! Cristine is hooked on Paris and can’t wait to go back now. We may speak to you again in a year or so!
By the way, please let us know if you ever decide to take a trip to New Orleans. We would love to actually meet you and show you around our city one day.

I wanted to extend my sincere thanks for taking care of our cooking class arrangements while in Paris. We had an absolute blast, everyone at La Cuisine was very accommodating, and Diane was fantastic. It was fun to learn from somebody like Diane who spoke fluent English, yet knew all of the amazing French cooking techniques and taught us how to make an amazing French meal. We will be making the menu soon to share with our Friends and Family. And the price was really reasonable, we’ll do it again next time we are there.

We have just arrived home and I wanted to thank you for organizing our Anniversary dinner and New Years Eve. We all had a wonderful time! Paris was a great experience. The apartment was perfect, as was the location.
Thank you so much for all your assistance.
Myself and my family cannot thank you enough for arranging my Uncle Jim’s last trip to Paris. It was comforting to know that everything was in your hands. My Uncle who usually relishes planning every detail of his fabulous European vacations was just unable to since he was so weak from the chemo therapy. Your organization, mixed with your kindness and attention to the smallest detail, really made his last hoorah! a trip to remember for him, my Aunt Margie and my mother.
The sunset boat trip down the river was just one of the highlights, but arranging to have a birthday cake for my Aunt – surprising EVERYONE including my Uncle – words cannot describe how you made them all feel. Thank you! In his last days he spoke so fondly of not only his trip but of you and your thoughtfulness. I can’t thank you enough for all that you did. You go above and beyond and obviously care about your clients! A simple thank you does not seem enough!
