What an amazing experience. Susanne was extremely articulate and knowledgeable. Her stories of French history and culture were mesmerising and exciting leaving us, especially our 17 year old son with a sense of awe and wonder of France and it's history. We covered a great distance filled with many sites to feast our eyes upon, each one with its own story accurately told with great enthusiasm and detail. Unfortunately our time was too short with this young lady, book a whole day it will be money well spent
