Paintings by Edward Hopper (1882-1967) have the deceptive simplicity of myths, a sort of picture-book obviousness. Each one is a concentrate of the hypothetical knowledge and dreams conjured up by the fabulous name of America. Whether they express deep poignancy or explore figments of the imagination, these paintings have been interpreted in the most contradictory ways. A romantic, realist, symbolist and even formalist, Hopper has been enrolled under every possible banner. The exhibition at the Grand Palais seeks to shed light on this complexity, which is an indication of the richness of Hopper’s oeuvre.

With already over 40 requests for 2012 and 3 years of partnership, it has been a real pleasure working with you.
We have acheived a lot since and hope that our partnership will continue to grow and become stronger over the years.
Here are feedback samples we recently received by Valerie Wilson Travel Agents :

In a nutshell, as the saying goes, my clients loved the trip. To be brief, the first guide in Carcassone was very good-they liked him, but not as great as the guide in Provence. They thought she was very very knowledgeable and so enjoyed her. In the south of France, they really liked the driver/guide. I think they thought it was fine that he might not have been the most scholarly because of the location. BUT all in all-I feel they really loved the trip, and thought it was a big success. Look forward to working with you in the future.
Again, thank you and I look forward to doing other trips with you. Nancy Polley

Hi Lydie,
Mr. and Mrs. Kolb and her mom, Mrs. Murdoch had a great time. Here is the feedback from her that I wanted to share with you:
“We loved our tour guides, and drivers. Corrine in Paris was amazing, full of knowledge and stories of "pop culture" history, like Marie Antoinette! Such fun. The trip to Fontainebleau and shopping in the Marais District, was definitely my favorite part of the trip!! (due in large part to our guide).
Our best dinner was at a tiny Parisian bistro, called La Petite Columbia, next to the hotel. Unforgettable!”
Once again, thank you for taking such great care of our clients.
Best, Franca

“Virginia was a super star guide in Paris. The ladies of YPO and I would have followed her anywhere. I have given them all your contact details - we are all very grateful. Thanks for making me look good - as usual! »

Dear Andre,
I wanted to pass along the wonderful praise I received about Rose, the Hogan's guide.
Thank you again for your assistance with this booking.
Best Regards, Lisa
Our trip was great. The hotel in Paris was good value for the money. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the lobby lounge comfortable and attractive. The rooms were a bit small and basic but comfortable beds and the availability of the lobby lounges made up fit he room size.
The Chateau in Bessiion was fantastic Highly recommended I would go back there in a flash. It has an outdoor heated swimming pool, beautiful grounds and rooms, Good food and also a friendly and helpful staff.
The real highlight of the trip was Rose, our guide. She was terrific. Friendly, good sense of humor and extremely knowledgable about the entire region. Planned the Normandy beaches tours so then we ended up at the American Cemetery with time to visit and witness the lowering of the flag complete with a 21 gun salute and the playing of taps while looking over 9,000+ graves and Omaha Beach, Very moving and not to be forgotten. My wife and I highly recommend her.
Best Regards,
