Susan Blechschmidt /Andrew Harper/October 2022

Just wanted to let you know what a great trip we had. All of the Harper hotels were 5 stars and all were so different. It would not be possible to rate one over the other. Our tour of Normandy with Eric was a never to be forgotten experience and the American cemetery was very moving. This was our seventh trip to Paris and we have stayed in many hotels going back to our first visit in 1969. The Cour de Vosges was quite special  and Carole, the manager was so gracious and the Place de Vosges was a great and vibrant neighborhood. We walked 5 or 6 miles both days while  we were there which I think was pretty good for a 77 and 78 year old. Also stairs everywhere The Meet and Greet at CDG was as I said previously worth every penny. We saved so much time.

Eric who guided us through the D Day sights was fantastic with a wonderful knowledge of WW II. We loved our hotel in Normandy. It was really beautiful. Our suite was huge.

We had a wonderful day in Dinard on a sunny Sunday and the Castelbrac is in a great location not far from town center and between the 2 ferry lines that go to St.Malo. The restaurant at Castelbrac was terrific and the staff very helpful. Our room was great with a sea view.

The Covent Garden was also great with a fantastic staff. This is a perfect location if going to see plays as we were. Great neighborhood with many restaurants and theaters  in walking distance Probably the best bathroom as it was very large with a double vanity which my wife loved. Room was very comfortable You might want to tell people taking the Eurostar that since Brexit, it is more complicated in that you must go through French and British customs at Gare du Nord which does take some rime but the train is still the best way to travel between Paris and London I hope we will be able to travel more but as George Burns used to say when he hit 80 “I only buy ripe bananas”. Anyway our next trip is to Hawaii in January for the winter. Thanks again for all your help on this trip and on prior trips
