The perfect 40th wedding anniversary trip to France!

Isabelle was incredible - patient with us as we worked through every detail of our trip, responsive when we ran into a snag, thoughtful in arranging both transportation and hotels that exceeded our expectations. Every request was met! At the end of a long day how wonderful it was to seamlessly check in to our hotel or walk to a fabulous restaurant all arranged in advance by Isabelle.

We thoroughly enjoyed an emotionally moving tour of the D Day beaches in Normandy led by our private guide Valentin. On another day, a precious young man from Bretagne met us at Mont St Michel and kept us out of the crowds for an excellent tour leading up to the abbey.

From small group tours in Champagne with Thomas to biking through the vineyards of St Emilion with Remy, every day was an adventure. We saw the sunset over the Seine in Paris, the full moon rise over Le Marais, dined on a four course luncheon at LaCaronne in Rouen, gathered sand on the hallowed beaches of Normandy, tasted Grand Cru Classe A St Emilion wines, strolled the Blvd St Germaine, rode the metro in Paris to the St Ouen flea market, rented a car, rode the train, toured and tasted champagne from a boutique family vineyard. Just one fabulous moment after another!

Thank you, Isabelle, for taking care of each detail so we had no stress. You made this 40th anniversary trip one of a lifetime!
