“Our Paris tour guide was incredible. She was prompt, she was brilliant, knew a lot about food and where to get the best things to eat. She really cared about our enjoyment and took her time with us. She was exceptional.” – Nissa Brownstein, NY, NY

 

Thanks for the great few days in Paris and its environs. Your guidance made our brief stay very unique and well worthwhile. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing the sights from a non-tourist perspective, and that was especially attractive for me since I’ve been to Paris quite a few times. We would definitely seek your guidance again on our next trip to France.” — Mark Meader, Sydney, Australia

 

“You went above and beyond our expectations. Your willingness to help us find a private Versailles tour guide to begin with was very impressive even after all your tours were booked. Your helpfulness in getting us the voucher at our hotel was amazing and our tour guide was fabulous. She was very informative, not only on Versailles itself but also on the art inside. I learned more from her than any other guides I have had in the past. She also accommodated one of our members who had a hard time walking. It was a memorable visit that was a highlight of our trip. Thank you.” — Victoria Shegoria, California

 

“Both of the private Paris tours were wonderful and both of our drives (Jean & Michel) were very friendly, informative and fun to have as guides. Thank you for helping to make our stay in France such a pleasure!” — Mark Pelsozy

 

“We had a most enjoyable trip to Paris, and our Normandy Tour was excellent. Our driver was extremely knowledgable of the area and its history. Thank you for providing such a good service.” — Marie Speck

 

Claire at Panache Tours – Please know that both our guides, Sandrine and Albrecht, were wonderful Paris guides, not a single complaint about either of them. They showed up on time, were knowledgeable and very informative.  Albrecht in particular has quite a droll sense of humor, and he showed us many out-of-the-way places in Paris, which is what we’d hoped for. Sandrine not only showed us Versailles, but also showed us how to use the train system to get around. We would hire Panache Tours and these particular guides in a split second if we get the opportunity to visit Paris again .” –D.J. Corryell, Rochester, MN

 

“Dear Claire – I am just writing a quick note to thank you very much for the arrangements you made on our behalf, and also to tell you that we were absolutely WOWED by Rozenn! She was an absolutely incredible guide and she helped us have the perfect tour of Paris! She has such great knowledge of the city and she is delightful to be around — we have said again and again that she made our trip more amazing than we could have imagined! We will recommend your company and Rozenn every time we have the opportunity to do so!  With many thanks.” — Hilary Claypool, Connecticut.

 

“Our Normandy tour guide was very prompt. The ride from Paris to Normandy Beaches went very quickly due to the information he provided on the way. I would definitely recommend you to my friends who are interested in a similar tour. When in Paris again, we will definitely use your services.” – D. Phillips, Texas 

 

“Your tour was much more in depth and complete than the ship tours. I thought our guide was very knowledgeable and let us see all we wanted and knew routes and secrets to allow us more time at our stops. All of my friends and my wife thought that our visit to Paris was a highlight of our trip. Again thank you very much for all you did.” — Phil Braden, CA (from Le Havre cruise ship)

 

“Dear Claire…..Please forgive me for being so tardy in saying thank you for the most lovely tour that anyone could possibly have…..It was just perfect.

“The tour was better than expected and our tour guide was probably the best guide we have ever had. He was personable, knowledgeable and kept us entertained the entire day. Highly recommend, thank you.” — S. Kantor, New York 

 

“Our guide, Michael, for the Jewish History walking tour was exceptional. He was so informed and easy to talk to and we liked him so much on a personal level.  (He can come stay at our house in Miami anytime.)  And Claire was great also.  We felt very taken care of when she called us in London to make sure everything was confirmed to our satisfaction.  We will definitely use your tour services in the future and will recommend you to all of our friends.” – Carol Berk, Florida

 

“The planning was quite interactive and I thoroughly enjoyed the email discussion to come up with a tour that exactly fit our schedule. The van was, just as advertised, roomy and comfortable for all 7 of his new charges (and 4 of us were 6′ or taller). (The guide) added a great deal of historical perspective to the sites we visited and greatly increased our enjoyment of the trip. We look forward to our next trip with Panache and recommend the experience highly.” — Marc Leslie, London, England

 

“I just wanted to say thank you for all of your assistance with our trip to Paris. Everything was perfect and went off without a hitch. The tour bus was really nice, and the driver was on time and extremely pleasant. Many people said they learned a tremendous amount and wished (the guide) were with them the  next day when they were touring on their own. The trip was a success because of your help and wonderful recommendations.”  — Shannon Heaton, Tustin, CA
