Valentine worked with me to create an amazing two week solo trip to France!! - Apr 12 - Apr 24, 2022

Valentine worked with me to create an amazing trip to Bordeaux, Tours (Loire Valley) and a quick stop in Paris. My accomodations were perfect - apartment style w/kitchens in residential areas. My apartment in Tours (Central Parc Tours) was breathtaking. Open, bright and looking right over a beautiful park. I did not rent a car and wanted to be able to walk everywhere and feel comfortable as a solo, female traveler. Valentine nailed it!!!!

I opted for several small group and private tours of the cities, wineries and surrounding towns. All of my guides were outstanding and I thoroughly enjoyed each of the trips. Ate, drank, laughed and explored some amazing regions.

Thank you Valentine for making this such a memorable trip (and on short notice). I look forward to working with you again on my next trip to France.
