Travel as a Local
Our mission is to help you experience the wonderful French culture and share good times. Thanks to our small group size we will blend in with the locals and get a better feel of what it is like to live in France. Traveling is not just about the history and the monuments, it's also about experiencing a new culture. That's why we have included fun and unique activities such as the French Picnic (South of France Tour) & Dine At The Guide's Home (Normandy Tour) are part of the tour. Plus you will have the expertise of a local guide (friend) all along the tour that know all the secrets of France!

Your Tour Guide, Your Friend
Julia and Stephane will share with you their culture and traditions and show you the hidden gems of the Southern France region. Since we only put together groups from 4 up to 14 people you will get plenty of attention from your tour guides to help you along your journey and answer all your questions. We truly believe that we are more than just tour guides, we are your French friends that you are coming to visit! On your arrival we will lend you a cell phone in order to be able to reach us at any moment of the trip that you are on your own, just in case you need us!
A True Vacation
We make sure that our journeys are full of amazing sites and unforgettable visits while also allowing breaks and free time to relax and be by yourselves. Departure time from the hotel won’t ever be before 9:00 am, we allow enough time to really explore each site that we visit, no need to run place to place! We average driving 2 to 3 hrs total per day so you spend less time on the road and more time enjoying France! Plus you don't have to worry about anything, everything is already planned for you. What a true vacation!
Traveling is a fun way to discover new meals and new cuisines. This is why we selected great authentic French restaurants that we have personally tried and approved of. We want you to enjoy trying all the different food France has to offer, so we won't ever take you to the same place twice! If you are a Vegeterian or Vegan or have any food allergies we will always work something (delicous) out with the chef! See Example of Menu Here
Learning French can be easy and fun! If you are interested we will help you learn basic phrases and expressions while you are on tour. Julia will teach you her language as she does during the school year in Washington D.C. Then you can impress the locals and your friends back home while picking up a second language and make your trip more memorable and rewarding! And if you already have a good level of French, Stephane would be delighted to speak only in French with you during the trip.
Our goal is to make sure that you spend the most memorable time and for that we have carefully planned everything for you. This is a complete stress-free vacation. Our price includes guides, hotel, breakfasts, lunches, 3 dinners (Normandy includes all dinners!), snacks, admission fees for stops on our tour, wine tastings, all the activities and a phone with a sim card to stay in touch with your guide at anytime. All you need to buy are your plane tickets, the extra diners, your drinks, and your souvenirs!
