“Just a note to say thank you for coordinating our sightseeing in Paris. The morning day drive was just right as was the all-day tour to Giverny -Versailles with the helicopter overview. The Seine (Marina) dinner cruise was great, and the night lights tour was OK in spite of the confusion about the pick up location after the dinner. Thank you for the credit of the one hour of time that we missed. I did not take into account the later sunset in July; the last time we did this was in April and we started the tour later in total darkness so all of the illuminations were much better--my fault! I would be pleased to recommend you and your services to any of our friends or to any of your potential clients”
