Bonjour Geraldine,
I hope all is well with you!
I thought you might like to see the feedback from Keenan on their trip a couple of weeks ago. please scroll down to see his email regarding the services from Decouvertes!

Paris was great and the hotel had a nice rooftop patio to enjoy the nighttime of Paris.   All in all, we loved each stop and the arrangements were impeccable.  The guides in Paris were the highlight both for the walking tour and for Versailles they were informative and very savvy.  Thanks for all you did it was a memorable trip.


Hi, Ralp,

It sounds  like my clients had a FABULOUS time in France!  Thank you so much for a wonderful experience!  See her note below.

Thank you!

I was planning to reach out to you today (digging out at work - ha!). It was absolutely FANTASTIC -- everything! What an experience! All the trains/planes/automobiles -- our accommodations, the tours - perfect. The tour guides were incredible. Elvira, Petr, Brigid -- so knowledgeable and passionate about everything they showed us. They spent so much time with us and were WONDERFUL. It was the best trip I've ever been on. I can't really call out a favorite because every day was so different. And it ended up being kind of cool that we spent that one night in Caen, because it was very different from Bayeaux, so it just gave us another memorable experience.

Thank you soooooo much! 

Bonjour Ralp,

My client, Jill Feeko for whom you helped me plan their trip to Champagne over Bastille Day weekend contacted me yesterday because they ordered a case of wine at one of the vineyards that your guide/driver took them too and they have not received it. They wanted to know if you could contact the winery and check on it for them? It was Domaine Le Gallais.   The Feekos did have a lovely time…thank you so much for helping me plan a great trip for them. Look forward to working with you again. 


Hello Andre,

The Loewenstern’s had a fabulous time- thank you so much!!!! Here is feedback from Karen

“The tours in Paris were amazing and Denise was a wonderful guide.  She is really an expert.  Please let her boss know how happy and impressed we were.  Gerome was a great driver too.  We loved LV Foundation - the architecture is stunning - Gehry's best.  Giverny a wonderful day with an amazing lunch.  And the Versailles experience was very special - from the private King's Apts. tour to the music in the state rooms, then the fountains lit up with music and fireworks topping it all off.  An experience that most people probably never have when they go to Versailles.  Thanks so much for arranging it all.”

Thank you for taking such great care of them.

Best to you from California,


Hi again Ralp,

Thank you so so much for working on this and finding the option. My client emailed me back and was very impressed you were able to make it happen, however he sadly said it was way more than he could afford to spend, so he will have to pass reluctantly. Thank you again for all your amazing help as usual.

Dear Mathilde,

My clients had a great experience and were very happy with their tour and their guide!

Thank you Ralp,

Our holiday weekend is upon us here in the USA and I’ll be enjoying time away at the beach with family, et.

The Peterson’s arrive Paris CDG tomorrow midday and you have the land arrangements set for them.  If you feel there’s any need to re-confirm the hotel arrangements, please do.  I’m looking forward to a positive experience for them as well as giving my 100+ colleagues a great review on Decouvertes!  This is my first time using your company and I’ve been really pleased so far Ralp.  

Hello Andre,

I hope this note finds you well.  I just want to thank you again for all the arrangements you made for our stay in Paris – everything we experienced met every expectation and indeed some exceeded them.  First, let me say how wonderful Elvira was for our group.  She is a fantastic guide and more than that she is a warm and wonderful lady who became part of our family during our stay.  Also, your recommendation of the Don Juan for our dinner cruise was perfect and we all enjoyed every minute!

I am happy to recommend your services to anyone seeking to create a bespoke experience in France. 

Thanks so much for follow up!  Currently those plans are on hold, but I will definitely reach out once we are ready.  You did an amazing job this year!!!

Again, I know I’ve said this before, but it can be repeated….  THANK YOU for the awesome job you did and are still doing.  The response from Mr. Montbach with everything has been exceptionally complimentary and I second his reactions.  HE and his wife are so excited about the part of the trip and I;m looking forward to hearing about it when they return.  It gives me great confidence to know that they will be well taken care of, again, thank you!

I look forward to working with you in the future and wish I had more clients going your way!
