I'm Bérangère and I am a tour planner at Paris-toujours agency. I am passionate about travel and gastronomy. I have traveled a lot in France and abroad since I'm a child and I think traveling is the best way to discover a country with its people, its culture and its specialties especially when you have the best advice!
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"Paris, Normandy, Loire Valley, Burgundy, Bordeaux, Provence, Riviera are the places I am specialized in.
Depending on the area you would like to visit and your desires I can recommend you some walking tours with a private guide, food tours and cooking tours and even wine tours in the wine regions. If you are an history lover I can plan tours to the D-day sites or to the Loire Valley area with the visit of the Renaissance castles. And if you want to discover the French countryside I can also plan for you day tours in Provence, Riviera or Loire Valley.
How did you get involved in travel?
"After a year abroad planning trips for myself I knew I wanted to work in the travel industry and help people creating their itineraries. After a master degree in Gastronomy, Wine and Tourism and some experiences as a tour planner I am now specialized in France destination which has a lot to offer!"
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"One of my best travel experience was during a trip to Bordeaux. I went to Saint-Emilion to visit a chateau Grand-Cru classé located just at the entrance of the village. The visit was very interesting and the view over the vineyards was unique: only nature, glasses of red wine paired with cheese and delicatessen. All the thing I love reunited in one particular moment! After this I had a lunch in a typical and pretty French restaurant and once again it was delicious! I continued this day trip with a stroll in the charming medieval villages and to finish this day I drove in the vineyard before heading back to Bordeaux."
