Montmartre and Sacre Coeur Walking Tour in Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Excellent small group walking tour that took us from the base of Montmarte to Sacre Coeur. Our guide was well prepared as he led us from the Moulin Rouge, to the cemetary and past the homes of many of the Impressionists. He told it in a very personal way which made it even mor einteresting.

French Wine Tasting Dinner

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

What a lovely evening in a "real" French wine bar and cellar. Pierre our sommellier did a wonderful job explaining the different wines we were drinking and how it was pared with the foods. While the food was ok - the great wine and the intimate setting in the wine cellar made for a fabulous evening. The table holds no more than a dozen folks, which makes it a lot of fun. Pierre was generous with is pours, which made it even better. Once you have experienced a few very pricey meals in Paris (it seems every one is)- this event is a great value andwe highly recommend!

Champagne Region Day Trip from Paris

My Review

Full tourist bus to Champaign Country. While it does say the tour is in English - it was also in Russian, Japanese and Spanish - it takes a little getting used too, but you learn to tune out the extra languages.

Our first stop was Mumm's - the factory guide was not the most proficient English speaker - but did ok. After a brief video of the history of Mumm's (pronounced Mooms) -we were taken on a tour of the cellars and the chanpaign makng process.

For those who wished, a quick tour was given of the Cathedral - though majestic, it's a re-build after being destroyed during World War I. Enough time was gicen to grab lunch and walk around before head for Moet and Chandon.

There is no question the Moet is the more upscale of the two name brands we visited. From the marble reception area to a deeper history lesson on the company. The cellars were unbelievable! Never mind the millions of bottles of Moet - being aged in the bottle in different states - but also the million bottles or so of Dom Perignon.

Both wineries offered a one glass per customer tasting.

All in all a nice way to spend the day.

My Review

We used this service to get from DeGaulle to Central Paris. Company answered the phone quickly, knew to expect us and picked us up within minutes of our call. Driver was polite and informative. A lot easier than dragging your luggage on the RER, then transferring to other lines - As a whole, the Metro is not that friendly to multi-train transfers if you are taking luggage with you.

Paris Latin Quarter Walking Tour

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

A great walking tour of the Latin Quarter. Our very small group tour - just my wife and myself - thouroughly enjoyed this tour. From the Pantheon to Notre Dame and points in-between, our guide walked us through history new and old. From where the French kept their prisoners to where Woody Allen filmed parts of Midnight In Paris.
