“Normandy, D-day tour”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

The entire day was excellent. From pickup to drop off, the Normandy tour was truly the highlight of our France visit. Phillipe is very knowledgable, kind and punctual. Our entire family enjoyed the day (girls ages 9, 14 and 17). Upon request, we also attended the German cemetery and it was incredible to compare with the American cemetery. Phillipe's knowledge of the area and the events of June 6, 1944 made it a powerful day. We will return to France and will be booking our next journey with Best of France. It is a first class tour--worth the money.

“Amazing Tour Guides! Wonderful Experience!”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

We contracted with Best of France Tours for three days while visiting Paris. There were 17 of us, so we decided that a private tour would be the best way to go. This company is an all-around class act. We toured Notre Dame, Versailles, two champagne houses, and drove to numerous attractions throughout Paris. Our guides were professional, attentive, and knowledgeable the entire time. The tour vehicles were Mercedes 19 passenger vans (including a seat for the driver and tour guide) and they were spotless and beautiful. I highly recommend Best of France Tours. You won't be disappointed.

“Normandy D-Day beaches and Giverny Tours”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Both tours were wonderful! We took the Normandy D-Day tour with Phillipe who was very knowledgeable and kind. The Giverny tour was with Michael who also offered background and history that enhanced our trip. Both Phillipe and Michael were very professional, arrived on time, and offered us a memorable experience in both locations. We thank both of you!

“Informative Tour”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

We found Frederick a very informative tour guide, he knew his sites, added some humour and was somewhat flexible with our different preferences. We covered a lot of ground during our 8 hours and felt we saw a lot of Paris that we would have otherwise missed.

He was very Parisienne in his interaction with others and us sometimes so you are getting the real deal with him.

“Fantastic private Versailles tour. Guides speak fluent English & Spanish!”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

We used this company for a full day Versailles tour on July 6. Ask about their cash discount.

We're a family of 5, with our 2 sons (14 & 12) and Grandma (67.) My 14 yr old and I are English only, my wife and 12 yr old are English/Spanish bilingual, with Grandma being Spanish speaking only. This usually presents an issue as to which language for tours, but not this time.

We were picked up at our hotel in Paris at exactly the set time by Frederic, our best friend for the day. Frederic is an extremely knowledgeable and likeable guide. He's also completely fluent in English and Spanish, easily switching between the two throughout the entire tour. What a pleasant surprise and it made my life so much better since he could include my mother-n-law in the tour.

Frederic is very patient and will accommodate your own pace for the tour. We're somewhat slow and disorganized, frequently stopping for too many photos. Not only did Frederic not rush us, he often volunteered to take our group photos, a task many tour guides find beneath themselves. He provided many interesting facts, individually tailoring the info for my boys, wife, me or madre. Everyone felt included and entertained throughout the entire experience.

We went on a weekend to see the fountain display. It only lasts an hour and Frederic was able to get all of us there at the same time, and on time through some miracle. You will want to see the fountains if at all possible.

I highly recommend setting up a tour with Best of France Tours.
