Sara was a phenomenal; her knowledge & professionalism could not be surpassed because of our exceptional experience. From the time she picked us up till the end of our 5 days, she made us feel very special. She scheduled our five days with a driver to maximize our time but never felt rushed. Her knowledge of French history and art made the tours of the Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, andVersailles, special. Our visit and enjoyment of sites and "atmosphere" of the City of Lights will always be a wonderful memory.
