Ando and Rock (Paris Sept. 7 – 15) are now back from Europe with Rave Reviews for your drivers, guides, escorts… they were well groomed, polite and professional. Thought you’d like to know everything went very well.


Hi Lea, the tour in Paris was fantastic. We did not go  to the Picasso museum or any of the other plans. Instead the tour guide was totally flexible took us where we wanted to go and I would really recommend him for other people. He was knowledgeable and interesting. He took us to Le Marais, the Jewish section of Paris and we enjoyed the tour of this very trendy neighborhood, also saw the new Louis Vuitton museum which is amazing and considered the best new art museum in France.
The hotel in Paris was lovely but we thought the staff was snobbish.  The location was great but the vibe was different than the other hotels—where people smiled and chatted and seemed eager to help.  We had lunch at another hotel which was fabulous and I would really recommend it: L Hotel.  Wonderful, romantic dining room.  The hotel has famous guests, its historic and cool.
One thing I would remind people who like boutique hotels is the storage room can be very limited.  Peter and I had small suitcases but the Paris hotel did not have much space for us to hang clothes or put them in drawers.
La Traviata was wonderful—thank you so much for getting us the tickets.



Hi Jessica, Littmann’s had a wonderful time. Loved their guides. Everything went smoothly. I’ve been talking you up in the Travel Leaders group.  Hopefully, it will lead to more business for you! Thank you, Kim Tripp

Bonjour Silvia, I want to thank you for assisting our group to Normandy this past weekend.  It was a very  difficult trip and not much fun for me because of the cancelled flight last Friday.  But everything worked out and we actually saw everything except St. Mere Eglise.  Thank you for putting up with all of the changes.  I don’t think I will be working with that group again, but I hope to possibly have groups in the future.  Thank you again for everything.

Bon Chance

Hello Ralp,

I just wanted to give you some feedback from the Godley’s and Bauman’s trip that you did for me.

They loved their Guide in Loire Valley, Claire was wonderful.

They enjoyed the accommodations.


Hello Celine
Hilary just called me – she has had a wonderful time!!  Thank you again for arranging the school and her accommodations – all has been great!!

Hello Jessica and Bastien,
I did hear from my clients, they had a fabulous trip!!!!
Thank you,

Dan Kraft

As you know, Andy Brumby is in St. Petersburg today (yay for him!) and is loving it. He asked me to tell you that Petr in Paris, Robin in Normandy and Victoria and Kate have all been very nice and very good and would like for you to convey that to their bosses…he’d like for them to get some “kudos” as he put it.

Hi Celine,
I’ve heard back from the above clients & they very much enjoyed the arrangements you made for them in France – THANK YOU for all your help!!

Hi Ralp,

I spoke with the Weissmans today.  Aside from the two issues with the transfers, the Weissmans were very happy with their overall experience.

The thing they highlighted the most was their guide, Jeremy.  They said the two days they spent with him were the highlight of their entire time in Paris and Burgundy.  The term Mr. Weissman used was that he was "off the charts" fantastic.   They explained that many of the wineries were closed, as they were visiting over the weekend, but there were a few places that opened just for them, and it was "magical".

They also enjoyed having the Meet and Greet upon arrival at CDG, so I know I will continue to offer that to my clients (and since I just made plans to visit Paris in April, I will probably contact you to arrange it for myself as well).
Thanks for your help on behalf of our mutual clients.  Please let Jeremy know the Weissmans thought he was awesome!

Warm regards,

Stacey Barone
