My wife and I recently returned from 9 glorious days in France. We spent 7 days in Paris and 2 days in Normandy. The trip was truly enhanced as a result of us hiring Paris Luxury Tours to help us navigate this historically and culturally rich country. PLT was with us for one whole day in Paris, one day in Versailles and 2 days in Normandy.

PLT provided door to door services, intimate walking tours and unique insight into neighborhoods, villages and French culture. Paris is magnificent!! Our trip to Normandy included Monet’s house, French harbour towns dating back 1000+ years and a solid day walking amongst the WW 2 fortifications that American, Canadian and British troops stormed on D Day. At Versailles, PLT provided a first rate review of the property. Don’t miss Marie Antoinettes’ cottages and Norman village. My compliments to PLT: they are at the top of the game.

Once again, on a return visit to France, we chose Paris Luxury Tours for specific tours. [Four day wine tour of Bordeaux and combined day tour from Paris of Giverny and Auvers sur Oise] Shahin organised a four day tour for us in Bordeaux carefully selecting high quality wine estates typical of their areas for us to visit. On each occasion we were given generous time from key personnel at the estates and tasted some magnificent wines.

None of this would have been possible without Shahin’s detailed preparations and his own wine knowledge. Great accommodations and exquisite restaurants added to the experience. Shahin has now taken us and members of our family on a total of six tours which indicates as strongly as anything could, our degree of satisfaction.

We are safely home in Darien, and can’t thank you enough for our wonderful tour of the Normandy beaches [US sector of Normandy D day sites]. Your vast knowledge brought all we have studied, read about and lived through as children come alive. To actually see the beaches was an incredible experience.

We [separately ] went to Mont St Michel and to Arromanches, both of which were wonderful. The museum at Arromanches is so well done. The harbor was far larger and extensive than we imagined. We had no trouble getting to the airport, and even had time to stop at Giverny. Gorgeous!! Thanks for that suggestion!!

Once again, thank you so very much, Shahin.

Both Jeff and I could not be more pleased with Gonzague as a guide and educator [Chablis Wine Day Tour from Paris]. The wineries were absolutely more than we’d imagined. We did not expect to have such individualized attention and guidance at the wineries, as we were treated to. The processes in winemaking were shared from the perspective of centuries of knowledge and experience with masters who love their work and approach their work as an art

Gonzague is a lovely person; very personable, knowledgeable and helped explain, when necessary, what was being described and with his own knowledge of farming and winemaking, gave us a day we won’t soon forget.

He was fun, humorous and enthusiastic about our day and we couldn’t say more but just to tell you thank you for arranging this with little or no lead time. Your attention to our requests and the efficiency with which you dispatched our plans was just plain amazing!

Thanks to both you and Gonzague for making this a day we’ll look back on with such joy and pleasure.Many blessings,

The history lesson you provided on our way to Normandy was very valuable and provided an excellent foundation for the day ahead.

It’s also worth noting that our kids are 9 and 11 and you made the tour enjoyable and informative for them as well.

Please feel free to use us as a reference for your future clients. We’ll be sure to reach out for our next visit. Thanks again.
