Lise did a wonderful job of creating a Paris adventure that has been totally fabulous! Our hotel, LeSix, was perfect in every way - friendly staff, wonderful breakfast, and comfortable room located close to everything we wanted in the 6tharr.

Lise did a wonderful job of creating a Paris adventure that has been totally fabulous! Our hotel, LeSix, was perfect in every way - friendly staff, wonderful breakfast, and comfortable room located close to everything we wanted in the 6tharr. Thomas, our pickup & delivery to the airport was polite, friendly and truly an expert driver!

We were more than pleased to discover we had personal tours on four occasions - the Sainte Chapel and Notre Dame (David), the Louvre (Ellen), the Gourmet Food Tour (Barbara) and our drive out to Monet’s home & gardens (Jean) were ALL BEYOND AMAZING. Each and every guide was personable and very knowledgeable.

We actually had a second tour with Ellen, Covered Passages, where there were only four in our group. What made all of these adventures EXTRA SPECIAL is the fact that each tour became totally unique to our expectations. WE LOVED EACH AND EVERY ONE!

Our trip out to Versailles was fun but, quite honestly, after so much individualized attention earlier in the week - we were spoiled and the large weekend crowds were a bit off-putting even though our particular group only had 15. The day was still memorable!

Our culminating adventure was a dinner cruise on the Seine. THIS was the perfect way to wrap up our first trip to Paris. The cruise included a window view, delicious food, a variety of champagne and wines, impeccable service all with lovely tunes provided by talented musicians and a singer. While we did not, dancing was enjoyed by many.

Would we use Kim-Kim services again? ABSOLUTELY, without a doubt. We had never used any such services on our previous travels and I was a bit reluctant to move in this direction of unknown waters (for us) BUT Lise with Kim-Kim did a fabulous job of tending to even the smallest of details, checking in at various points and insuring things were proceeding as planned.

Eight days of great fun - ALL without a hitch, no cancellations, no mix ups, no changes! We had a most memorable FIRST experience in Paris and look forward to making more travel adventures in the future with Kim-Kim assisting. Thank you!

Activity Reviews
Cheese and wine tasting in a Parisian cellar in the Marais
Paris

WOW! We thoroughly enjoyed this activity. Agate (Agatha) did a wonderful job of explaining the variety of cheeses, their regions and processes gif production. She also brought in a wonderful assortment of wines for pairing. Terrific! My hubby actually now enjoys wine a bit more than before.

Latin Quarter Gourmet Tour
Paris

This experience was good and we’d do it again BUT, if done in the future, we’d put a couple days between the wine/cheese pairing with this tour because much of the food tour was focused on wine & cheeses so it pretty much repeated what we had done the night before. We still enjoyed all the knowledge shared by Barbara!

Dinner show at the Moulin Rouge
Paris

Moulin Rouge is a unique experience but they pack you in like sardines do comfort was NOT a concern to the proprietor - it was tight, stuffy and NOT friendly for an easy exit. Dancers were talented…lighting was quite a glare & somewhat blinding for the audience.

Wait staff was efficient considering their working conditions.
