enjoyed our tours very much. We took four
tours, and all of the guides were knowledgeable,
friendly, and professional.
want to thank Jean-Michael, our
guide in Burgundy. We spent two full days
with him, and he took us to vineyards, wineries,
cellars, and tasting rooms. The second day,
we tasted 25 - 30 wines. He gave us a
real education on wine-making and tasting.
We'll always remember him.
definitely think of your company in the
future and recommend you to our friends.

BURGUNDY PRIVATE TOURS...
First, we had a great
trip – and your part of the trip was the
who picked us up at the Train Station in
Paris was very professional, well dressed,
polite, spoke excellent English, and was
waiting for us with a easy to read sign.
Our two days
in Burgundy were the trip highlight. Our
guide – Jean Michel – was simply unbelievable! We
were extremely fortunate to get him. I cannot
imagine how he could possibly have been any
better. He was thoughtful enough on
Sunday to contact our hotel in Beaune to
confirm our meeting time on Monday morning
and to let us know that everything was set.
We started at the shop run by Domaine de
l’Ange Gardine in Beune. We had
a very nice tasting with the owner and his
wife – a lovely couple. However, we
learned very quickly that tastings in Burgundy
are quite different from most tastings in
Napa. We tasted 10 different wines
at l’Ange Gardine. We had to
hustle thru that tasting in order to make
our appointment at Domaine Olivier Leflaive
in Puligny Montrachet. I think the French
just do things at a slower pace – which is
certainly fine when you are tasting so many
really added to the tastings by giving us
tips and making suggestions and pointing
out differences and similarities between
the various wines. We followed that
up with a nice tour at Domaine Olivier Leflaive. The
tour was conducted by Patrick Leflaive and
was followed by a lovely lunch tasting –
where we tasted 14 wines! The lunch
lasted a good 2.5 hours. The tour and tasting
were not as intimate as our tasting at l’Ange
Gardine, but were still very nice in large
part due to Jean Michel’s guidance
and comments. Jean Michel, Doug and
I then went “off script” to visit
some of the local wineries in Mersault that
Jean Michel knew – I think he felt comfortable
that Doug and I were very interested in the
wines and learning as much as we could about
Burgundy. We had a wonderful time and
got to spend some very nice, quality time
with these people. And, after spending
the day with Jean Michel, we felt comfortable
in telling him to feel free to change our
plans for the following day to suit our tastes
and the girls’ interests! It
could not have worked out better! We
started the day by touring the Grand Cru
vineyards and getting out to learn
a little more about the grapes, planting,
tending and harvesting. We even got
to visit two of the vineyards owned by the
people that we visited next for our tastings!
at Chantal Remy’s home in Morey Saint
Denis. That was probably the highlight
of our entire trip! We did 2 barrel
tastings of their 2 grand cru wines, followed
by sharing 3 bottles with Chantal, her husband
and son. A lovely day that
would not have been possible but for Jean
Michel’s 30 year relationship with
the Remy family! We then had a lovely lunch
at a restaurant picked out by Jean Michel.
We then visited Gerard Quivy’s winery
– another friend of Jean Michel. We
were able to simply take the keys and tour
their cellars! Very fun.
We then got
to Dijon about 45 minutes before we needed
to get to the train station so Jean Michel
gave us a quick tour of some the major tourist
attractions in Dijon. He dropped us
off at the station with a bottle of wine
from his winery! It was a great 2 days
– I can’t begin to tell you all of
the wonderful things that Jean Michel did
for us. I would tell your guests that
if they feel comfortable with their guides,
they might want to allow their guide to make
suggestions. I know we deviated from
the schedule you had worked so hard to work
out for us, but that made our trip!
Day trip to
Champagne area. Our guide
was very professional, well-dressed, polite,
spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable
about French history and the area. He
was very accommodating and helpful to our
every request. We enjoyed our
tours at Moet & Chandon and Ruinart.
when (not if) we go back, we will be definitely
using your services. Feel free to use
me as a reference if you need one in the
future for your Burgundy and Champagne tours! Thanks

want to thank you for providing an excellent
tour guide (in Normandy) for us. We
have used private tour guides in Italy,
Greece, Turkey, Mexico, England, Ireland
and Scotland. The Normandy tour was truly outstanding. The guide's knowledge of the tour area and history
is comprehensive and impressive. The
Normandy tour and transfer to Paris provided exceeded our expectations.
Private Tour of Normandy
have just returned from France and wanted to thank you so much for arranging
our tour of Versailles. Our tour guide was most pleasant and informative. Versailles
is much as I remembered it – with the exception
of the appalling crowds. I would pay a great
deal more to be in the company of a great
deal less humanity, but the gal I was traveling
with had never been there so it was a first
time experience for her.
any event, I do not recall ever seeing the
Grand and Petite Trianon’s so that
was a real bonus for me.
you for organizing this for us on such short
notice. It was greatly appreciated!

Normandy tour guide was so fantastic that
we still talk about him and the wonderful
time we had that day. In addition to being
a pleasure to spend time with, he offered
the most fascinating information about
the history of the battle and the region.
He truly made it an unforgettable experience
Tour of Normandy
We have returned
and wanted to let you know how happy we were
with our Paris tour guide Jean and our day
trip to Versailles and Giverny! It
was a really great day and everything worked
out beautifully. Jean was very knowledgeable
and easy to be with so we would definitely
recommend you to our friends.
Private tour of Giverny & Versailles
husband and I are finally settling back in
at home, so I had to write to let you
know how the transfers and private day-tours that
you arranged for us worked out. In
short, they made our Paris trip an
extraordinary, over-the-top experience,
the memories of which we will cherish forever!
Even the airport
transfers were enjoyable, with the charming
Phillipe as our driver. He is just
delightful! So personable and funny
and very much in tune with the passenger's
needs and moods. His English, as well as
that of ALL the driver/guides, was wonderful,
too. He also went above and beyond
the call of duty. The Mercedes sedan
was beautiful, spotless, and very comfortable.
It also accommodated our extensive luggage
The 12-hour Loire
Valley tour with Paul was nothing short of incredible. He
is a veritable encyclopedia of knowledge regarding
the chateaux, the royalty and their many
intrigues and escapades. His in-depth knowledge
of French history wove a dimensional tapestry
for us, filled with living, breathing residents for
each chateau we visited, that allowed us
to envision what life was like in the days
when people actually lived in, rather
than just looked at, these magnificent castles...
these treasures of France.
And our afternoon
at Giverny, with our tour guide and drive was absolutely spectacular. We
felt like we had a friend in Paris who was
taking us out to Monet's exquisite country
estate. As with both Phillipe and Paul before
him, Sal was exceedingly knowledgeable. He
anticipated our questions more often than
not. He was extra-ordinarily personable, witty
and totally accommodating. He made our afternoon
at Giverny a time we did not want to end
and a memory we will always treasure.
in all, Ning, I am so very glad that I
found you online. In all honesty, I had
my concerns initially, since this was a
very special trip for us and I wanted it
to be perfect in every way. Never having
done business with your company before,
and not knowing anyone who had, I was very
apprehensive. But you and your partners
in Paris far exceeded my expectations
in every possible way. I would not hesitate
for an instant to recommend you and Well
Arranged Travel to anyone."

husband Dave and I used your services to
arrange a personal tour of Versailles and
were very impressed and pleased with our
tour! The tour guide we had was phenomenal. She
provided us with exactly the right amount
of detail and flexibility that we needed
to make this trip and our niece's first trip
to London and Paris absolutely enjoyable.
In fact, Dave and I have recommended your
tour services to others that we know travel
to London and Paris as well as our travel
and I are planning another European trip
in October. This time we are going to
Rome. We are very interested in pricing information
for a full day private personal tour of Rome.
We look forward to receiving your information
and working with you again."
Kristine and David Tomzik
Tour of Versailles
had a fantastic time in Paris. Thank you
for all your help. Our guide was "Jeff" (apparently
short for Jean-Francois) was superb. He
was extremely polite, spoke excellent English,
and accommodated our every request. He customized
the tour for us, showing us exactly what
we wanted, and then more. He took us precisely
where we wanted to go, then showed us some
extra sights, and also found a fantastic
place in Montmartre for us to have lunch.
I admire people who are good at what they
do, and Jeff is definitely great. Thank
you for arranging this for us. Please
once again send our thanks to Jeff for giving
us a day we will always remember."
Loren Rolak & Family
Private Tour of Paris
wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed
our private tours in Paris. We were just
delighted with Aurelie. My traveling companions
had not had the pleasure of touring a museum
with a private guide. After our tour, they
were amazed by the thoroughness of her knowledge.
We have two new converts to the word of custom
guides! She was able to turn the visits
into meaningful educational experiences.
Our time with her was a true delight.
my travel plans take to Italy or France,
I will be sure to contact you for our guides.
Again, thank you and your team for a truly
exceptional museum experience. "
