Paris & London

Susan & Brad

My husband and I wanted to take my 17 year old daughter and her best friend to London and Paris
during our 2018 Spring Break.  We hadn’t been tourists in these two cities for 20 years, so we wanted advice and help planning.  The girls wanted boutique hotels in great neighborhoods and wanted to tour
some of the major attractions.  Veronique put our trip together from soup to nuts!  She found us affordable
airfare and fun hotels, booked our transfers and train, set us up with knowledgeable local people in
London and in Paris to show us around and give us the history.  She was able to get us access to the
Eiffel Tower on short notice.  Everything worked like clockwork and it took the stress out of the trip so we
could just enjoy showing the girls around these two fabulous cities.

Bordeaux, Wine & Culture

Ruth

Dear Veronique, Nick and I enjoyed the trip enormously. We talk about it every day, and have been telling our friends about it. I think about how all the people we came in contact with were so well informed and enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge. We were so fortunate to be welcomed in chateaux, chalets, and hotel particulier. You certainly have a lot of friends! We saw the beauty of Bordeaux and it’s regions and sampled its bounty, and felt your love and connection to it and its history. Thank you for sharing all this with us!

Bordeaux and its Surroundings

Tim

This trip to Bordeaux was incredible. The city, the history, the wine, the gastronomy, the escape
to the Atlantic Ocean and the cultural tours to the Montesquieu castle and the Mauriac’s house.
I’ve been telling my wife that was the best vacation we ever took.
The high point of the trip for me was discussing Mauriac and Camus with the guide when
visiting Mauriac’s house.
Thank you for your expertise.
