Just a note to say thank you for co-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. JK
I'll take an excuse to write about Chantilly. Its one of my favorite places to visit near Paris. It houses the 2nd largest portrait collection in France and the Living Horse Museum is second to none. To do it right you need a private guide for the afternoon or if you have luxury of a full day stop of in the medieval village of Senlis. If you are super lucky it will be market day. I wish i could show you the photos I took on the last one.
