“First class tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

We were extremely happy that Frederic met us at the gate at CDG. This was a ladies trip and we had many suitcases. The van was immaculate and comfortable. He also made sure we could check into our hotel since we were early. I highly recommend them for airport transfers. The next day we had a wonderful panoramic tour of Paris before arriving at the Louvre. Our driver and guide was Sandrine. She provided fascinating history and her english was perfect. We also traveled in a new Mercedes van so all the ladies were comfortable. The entire experience was First Class so the next trip we will book them for a different tour every day!
Philippe responded to my emails quickly and with details so the reservation process was easy too.

“Day 2 - Paris, France”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

This morning we are up early again to go to the Eiffel Tower and be the first to go up. Thanks to Bob and the Insight group for this coup. You would not believe the mile long line up at 8:30 a.m. to buy tickets and we got to go right through. We went as high as the 2nd level. This is high enough and you get a great view.

Now we leave there for the Louvre. We have been here before but it was good to go again. We had a light lunch (thank goodness) then we boarded the bus again and went to the Notre Dame Basilica (beautiful).

Having listened to a very knowledgeable guide, Nicolas, we then walked through the Latin Quarter. This is known as the student section of Paris.

Okay, my hip has now said ENOUGH. I barely made it back to the spot where we got on our bus. Now it is getting sad. We leave the group and have to say goodbye to our new friends, our guide, Bob and driver, Franco.

To make up for it, we go on the hunt for detergent to do some laundry and find a Bistro for a glass of wine. That now done, back to our hotel to do some laundry and get ready for dinner – just the 3 of us. Paris is now ours…..

“FABULOUS!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

My husband and I, daughter, son-in-law and two teenage grandchildren went on our "Trip of a Lifetime" in September 2013. We began in Paris and Best of France Tours was absolutely wonderful making our visit to the "City of Lights" fantastic! While planning our vacation, email with Philippe was easy -- he was always prompt and courteous replying and clarifying details and information. We booked Best of France Tours for several tours and it was definitely worth every penny.
When we arrived at Charles de Gaulle airport, Noel was waiting for us. He was delightful and pointed out so many sites on the drive into the city. That afternoon, Philippe picked us up at our hotel for a 3 1/2 hour overview tour of Paris. Philippe is friendly, knowledgeable, understanding and humorous. We saw more than we ever thought possible; he even parked at crowded Sacré Coeur so we could spend time there. FABULOUS day!
The next day Frederick picked up for a very special afternoon – drove us to the apartment building in the suburb of St. Cloud where I lived for three years (1956-1959). Frederick's patience was successful in getting us through apartment security; and by kindly engaging an elderly woman exiting the elevator in conversation and explaining why I was there, this woman invited me up into her apartment to take photos of Paris from her balcony. Amazing!!! We spent the rest of the afternoon visiting the Arc de Triomphe. Truly perfect!!
On our last day, Michel was our tour guide -- he picked us up at our Paris hotel and drove us (with luggage) to Normandy for a full day of touring, finally delivering us in the late afternoon to our hotel in Bayeux. Michel had great knowledge of European history, Normandy, the D-Day beaches and told poignant stories about D-Day. It could have been a very frustrating day because when we initially arrived in Normandy we discovered that the American Cemetery in Colleville-sur-Mer was closed (first day of the US government shutdown). But Michel quickly and cheerfully 'reorganized' with a wonderful plan for the day. We were very impressed and thankful with all that we saw and experienced with him.
Our entire family cannot say enough good things about Best of France Tours. Next fall when my husband and I return to Paris, we will again use Best of France Tours. All the guides were enthusiastic, kind, knowledgeable, prompt, drove safely, and the vans were new and clean. BRAVO!!! WELL DONE!!! Thank you, Carolyn and Ted

“Beautiful Brugge and Charming Champagne”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2013

During our just concluded Paris holiday with the family, my husband booked 2 day trips out of Paris to Brugge and Champagne respectively with Best of France Tours. Philippe Brimont was helpful and prompt in replies to my husband's emails. Our driver-guide Frederic for both trips was excellent - careful, calm and smooth driver (despite heavy traffic on the return journeys into Paris), and was extremely knowledgeable, polite and articulate. He was able to converse about anything, made concerted efforts to remember all my children's names, and had ready suggestions for us without any hint of inducement or pressure. The trips felt unrushed and relaxed and we were able to experience the innate beauty and essence of the places we visited. Frederic also took the initiative to book a table for us (we were travelling as a large family of 7) at the lovely Les Crayeres Le Jardin Brasserie in Reims where we enjoyed one of our best meals of our holiday. We will certainly opt for Best of France Tours for our future french sojourns!
