Our philosophy: now, you have a friend in France
Nicolas founded its boutique travel agency several years ago with one aim : make you discover France, its authenticity, within small private groups, with full assistance and top-quality Service. I was born and raised in France but travelled a lot for several years through South-East Asia, Europe, United States. I also lived in Belgium and South America in Venezuela.
Back to France, I kept this travel spirit: making you discover France with a real contact with the French, go behind the scenes, take off-beaten roads, eat or sleep in hidden gems. Without forgetting two crucial points : CONVIVIALITY and SECURITY.
We now design taylor-made private tours in every French region, even the ‘unknown’ ones touristically. Whatever your desires, they want to make your French trip unforgettable. Don’t waste time with logistics, just relax and enjoy.
‘Why travel with us and why taking a Travel Agent?’
As a Tourism Agency registered at Atout France, the only French National organism for tourism agencies, I do have a profesional insurance and a banking warranty so that your money is protected. Their official immatriculation is n° IM041150001.
A customized tour is the most difficult tour to organize. Meeting specific requests and finding you appropriate experiences require a lot of time and patience. They spend hours on the roads, on the phone to make your trip unique. FLEXIBILITY and ASSISTANCE during all your time in France.
You will never reach a ‘phone platform’ but Nicolas himself on his cellular. He is trilingual English-Spanish and French (with US family) so don’t hesitate to call !
All their experience of demanding foreign travelers added to their perfect knowledge of France will bring you an accurate answer to your dream holidays. Their close relations with many partners allow their clients to have a specific attention and ‘little bonuses’. »
Working with a Travel Agent makes you benefit from his many years of experience, in travelling in your destination ; he knows all the areas, the good connections, the trustworthy persons to make transfers at a fair price. I am now even more demanding than my own clients ; we want everything to be perfect, to go as smooth as possible in our hectic lives.
The Travel Agent saves you so much time in contacting the nicest places, not the « chain hotels » and the TripAdvisor top 5 list. He knows these places, sometimes the very room you are going to sleep in. He knows exactly all the details of these accommodations because he was there before you, he has met the owners or the managers. He has made a harsch selection of these thousands of hotels / B&Bs / private houses or castles. This list is the result of many years of work, of choice, of relations and of insight.
Your Travel Agent is bringing you all his advice at all levels and that saves you a lot of time.
Moreover, your Travel Agent will be there at all stages of your trip : before, during and after. You can rely on him at every moment. Especially if something is going wrong. You definitely have a « friend » in the country who will never leave you alone once the payment is done.
