Travis was our driver and we had such a great time with him. We had such a great time that our two hours had flown by so quickly!
I had been in communication with Fabien, who I am assuming is one of the business owners, for months about my tour. I constantly added and subtracted the sites that I wanted to see. Therefore, my tour went from a traditional structured tour to a non-traditional one as he gave me the creative freedom to pick and choose the sites that I wanted to see within the time frame that I had paid for. He was very flexible with me, even allowing me to change the date and time of my tour and also gave me the option to pay in cash after the tour was over.
I booked this tour as a surprise for my husband who is a fan of classic cars. Travis, our driver, waited outside of our hotel for us in a cute little car. He had actually come about 20 or so minutes early although my husband and I were late getting back to our hotel to begin the tour. Then, once he introduced himself, we got into the car and he gave us a bottle of champagne (which can be ordered in advance) and we began the tour. Because the tour was late at night, some of the sites that we wanted to see were closed, but Travis took us as close to the attractions as he could, and even helped us map out a route to get from our hotel to these attractions so we could go back the next morning when it was light outside.
Travis gave us the history of the attractions that we wanted to see and was able to answer all of the questions that we asked him. We even asked him all sorts of strange questions, including ones about his personal life and how he liked living in Paris and he answered all of them without hesitation. Needless to say that he kept us entertained the entire time. He was very engaged with us and was not "stiff" and "rigid," but instead, very fin to be around.
I even asked him to take us to the Pont des Arts so that my husband and I could put a love lock on the bridge, and he parked next to the bridge and even took our picture as we did so. He was not at all offended, but very happy to take our pictures at this site as well as all of the other sites we asked him to take us to.
