Merci ... from our clients:
I finally connected with Neil, the teacher who
accompanied my high school group to Normandy. In his words, the tour was
"awesome!" The driver was wonderful and he and the guide got along and worked
together very well. They seemed to like our group too and said they were so
pleased to have a group that was so respectful and well-behaved. He said
everything went beautifully and they all had a great time. Thanks, as always,
for making such great arrangements!

My husband and I just returned from Paris on Sunday. We had a wonderful
time. Paris is a beautiful city and lived up to its reputation. It's a
great combination of the monumental and the commonplace....And we enjoyed
the people immensely. ...The two hotels you recommended were perfect. The
Hotel Waldorf Madeleine had the classic balcony and view. We
enjoyed the cozy bar at the Villa St. Germain; both very
comfortable hotels in great neighborhoods! Your airport transfers, the
City Tour/Seine Cruise and the Loire Valley Tour were excellent.
Thanks again for your valuable advise, Best Regards, L.D. Travel Agent
(Illinois). P.S. My favorite chateau was Cheverny!"
"We just returned from our trip and loved Giverny...once I learned
to pronounce it properly..! The gardens in April were lovely...I hope to use one
or two pictures in the paper [The Chicago Sun Times]...you made some
great touring recommendations...we'll send you a copy of the article soon." R.

bottle of wine with our dinner!! Sally and I are passing the word." D.
Andrews, Atlanta, GA
"With the war going on in Iraq, we [wife and I], were somewhat
apprehensive about heading off to France for this holiday....the people could
not have been nicer!...they were asking us everywhere about "french fries" being
taken off the menus in US restaurants....[they're] fascinated about that!
The Villa Fenelon was charming and your rates were the best...we'll be back with
you next year too!" C. LaGrange, Norfolk, VA

The bus trip to Reims...although a bit long, was wonderful! The best features of dealing with Paris Plus were your customer service and the variety of trips you make available, the ability to book ahead and have our confirmation vouchers and the museum and metro passes before going to France." J. Barker, Las Vegas, NV

"Dear Paris Plus,
The trip to Giverny was more than wonderful because of our driver..she had a great personality and made the trip more exciting. I wish you sold videos of France...I would have loved to viewed several prior to our trip. Your passes, both the metro and Museum, were really handy in getting around Paris...almost like a native. Next trip, we're going to use your private car and drivers for some of our excursions...[that way] we can focus in on specific areas. Thanks again for everything." Dr. R. N., Grapevine, TX
Dear Paris Plus,
"We just returned from our WONDERFUL vacation to France. We are so glad we used your services. We arrived in Paris expecting to begin our journey by searching for our driver, and were pleasantly surprised to find a young man with our name on a placard right outside the baggage area. We were taken to our hotel, the Campanile Bastille, where we were also met with a pleasant greeting and a comfortable room. It was such a help to have our metro passes and museum passes already in hand, and the Bus/Seine cruise/Eiffel Tower tour was a pleasant, relaxing way to become oriented with the city. We thought you might want to know that, without exception, the vouchers that received from you were questioned by the companies. They all seemed to be expecting something smaller, rather than our full-size sheets. Fortunately, they all accepted them after some convincing. Thank you again for your advice while planning our trip and the prompt delivery of our package. When we return to France (the sooner the better!) we will certainly use your company again, and will gladly recommend you to others."
Sincerely, Carrie W., Modesto, CA
"I learned about Paris Plus from the Internet...then called your reservations staff- they were excellent -very professional and knowledgeable in our booking call. The Museum and metro passes more than paid for themselves! The vouchers you sent were clear and easily understood...no questions at all. We took the Chateau of the Loire trip and the Giverny tours and they were perfect. It was great to be able to get the metro passes in advance of going to France, it make it so easy.! I wish you took American Express [Edit: we now do] Thanks to Steve and Gwyn who did a great job." Kaye Z.; Torrence, CA
"Despite my concerns about purchasing a tour package, hotels, passes, etc. from the internet, every single thing we arranged though Paris Plus-Airport transfers, hotel, tours, metro and museum passes were perfect. Our hotel was a good value, very clean, well located, good breakfast and great value. Gwyn was a big help. Documents arrived via FedEx as promised. Loved the whole trip thanks to Paris Plus!." Judith M.; Homewood, IL
"We purchased Paris Metro Passes, Museum Passes, Motorcoach Sightseeing Tours and your Airport transfers...we thought the value of your products pricing was excellent. I learned about you on the internet and we received excellent value for all the products we purchased. Your reservations and customer services people were very professional and we appreciate the attention to detail shown our booking. I'm glad you've added Discover Card and American Express in addition to Visa and MasterCard. " Ron P.; Orlando, FL
"I just wanted to let you know how happy I was with all your services. I found you on the internet and was really reluctant to provide you my credit card number for the various sightseeing programs and hotels you put together for us. Everything went beautifully, even though the Metro and Museums in Paris were having a work stoppage while we were there; it all worked out great. The transfer service was wonderful...they had our name on a placard when we came out of Customs at Charles de Gaulle and we were on our way into the city within 10 minutes. The driver couldn't have been more helpful!. I found your products and services to be an excellent value and the benefit to us of the products purchased was excellent as well. For my dealings with Paris Plus, you note we checked:..."Customer Service, Documentation/Voucher Preparation, product knowledge or reservations staff, and prices; as the best features in dealing with you. We loved the Louvre St. Anne...the staff was wonderful and most helpful...breakfast was sumptuous as well...and all our tours went well and were on time. We met other travelers from Texas who used Paris Plus as well. Thanks again for everything." JM, San Antonio, TX
"You couldn't have assisted us more in the planning of our client's trip to the south of France.

We will definitely work with you again soon; very professional." Robin N., The Travel Station

"Thanks for getting our order out overnight...I really got behind the time curve and had my wife all over me for not getting your services arranged for sooner.

"John- just wanted to let you have some feedback about the hotel where we stayed. The Auberge du Centre in Chitenay [Logis de France] was fantastic. The rooms and baths were clean and nice, with plenty of fresh towels and such. The have bicycles available for their guests. The owner and his employees were friendly and helpful. The best part, though was the restaurant. The food was definitely 3 star! Apparently, it is known locally, as there were many people from the area who came for dinner at night. I had fois grad maison that was to die for! The location is very close to many of the chateaux, about 10-15 minutes from Blois...Thanks for everything John; my whole family; including our two children had a blast!" Beverly de F.....Dallas, TX
"We found the dinner-dance on the River Seine was worth every penny +...my wife and I want you to know that you were really "'Paris Plus"' and then some...thanks to Hilarie for all her great help." Robert J., New Haven. CT
I want to tell you the Museum passes we purchased were heaven-sent for us this summer...going right into especially the Louvre and Museum D'Orsay...with those huge lines...it really freed up our time for exploring versus standing in lines. [We] found the Paris metro/bus and RER passes a REAL time-saver for us...definitely essential for getting around...it was just one less hassle in trying to negotiate details while we were on the run" Thanks for making our trip so much easier...I will definitely refer my friends to you". Reagan O., Dallas, TX
"With our smaller upscale group, it is more convenient to use Paris Plus' transfers to get around Paris...using taxis would have been a nightmare...alot less in cost than A & K could have provided us!!. Paris Plus was very professional and responsive to all our requests...Thanks again!"L.G., President @ Mustang Travel, Inc.
" Dear Michelle...[we] had a great time with our car rental...driving throughout all the nooks and crannies to be found in Provence...[and] the food was to much to believe. Fantastique...[what] else could you say. The Hostellerie [Logis de France] was great...the owners couldn't have helped us more, not only helping us in our daily planning; they passed on areas that even I had never heard of [after living in Avignon going to school-year abroad]. I have to tell you your rates were almost 15% better than Auto Europe, the car was just as advertised! Now the problem....how do I get my husband to go back again this Fall ['98] after just returning August 26th!! Best & thanks again Michelle." Sunny & Bob J., Elmhurst, IL
"As a French teacher, I knew you could buy Metro Passes in Paris; however, the nominal difference in price between having the passes with me when I arrived at Orly [for my transfers] was worth it buying from Paris Plus...I even had the passes in hand the next day." Laura S., Elmhurst, IL
"I couldn't believe the car rental prices...when I called several companies...in fact, the same one used by Paris Plus throughout France, the savings with Paris Plus was more than $272! Boy, watch for me on the usenet talking up this one! What a bargain..." ....Dennis L., FL
"Without the Museum/monument passes from Paris Plus, we would not have seen the Louvre and Orsay Museum because of the tremendous crowds waiting in line just to get in the door...we went right in with our passes! Thanks for the help!" ... J.S., Owner@ Judith Time Travel
"Our driver was just fantastic...very courteous...always on time...he gave us some great tidbits and super information as we were heading to our hotel from the airport.

Thanks Paris Plus for helping last minute and coming through like champions. We'll certainly use you again on our next discovery trip to France." Paula B., Palo Alto, CA
"...we especially loved the L'Auberge de Pays in Provence...it was clean, comfortable and we appreciated the quaint village...we could see the Mediterranean from our room!. If you looked in the other direction, we saw snow in the Alps too. Your voucher program is great and we've passed on the word to our friends in Michigan too. Thanks for making our trip so special. P.S. The owner of the inn, Henri Claude and his wife were great cooks to[o]...they even shared his grandmother's recipe too!"Betty P., Phoenix, AZ
"Claude, our driver was amazing...we just had a short four hour tour of Nice before boarding our ship...but, he took us to the fresh flower markets, the open air food markets...I was almost expecting to see Julia Child strolling along side of us...checking for freshness. We even met the sous-chef of the Negressco Hotel between the tomatoes and leeks....Claude introduced us and the chef shared his secret for his special Salad Nicoise...was the hit onboard with our other friends sharing this unique time. Thanks again!"...Nicole J., Minneapolis, MN
