Our happy customers have a lot to say about our services!
All the travel plans were flawless… this was exactly the trip we’d hoped for!
We wanted to let you know we had an excellent time on our trip. All the travel plans were flawless and we had so much fun. The hotels in the Loire Valley (Hotel Pavilion des Lys) and Dordogne (Les Hauts Saint Vincent) were especially excellent…
…Le Hauts was amazing – so relaxing and comfortable. Also, the homemade dinner at Les Hauts was an absolute a must! Our hostess Stephane is an amazing cook and was also a very nice conversationalist…. I’d definitely recommend these 2 places to others!
The tour guides were also fantastic both in Nice and at especially at Versailles (I wish we’d had even more time at Versailles with our guide – we learned sooo much and his historical stories brought the place to life!). The private drivers were also great (prompt, polite and helpful). Also, thank you for including the audioguides at many of the museums… They were fantastic, especially at the Louvre (we used them until the batteries ran out and wished for more)!
All in all, this was exactly the trip we’d hoped for!
Thank you so much for helping to make it a reality.

Working with French Side Travel was the best experience ever
Working with French Side Travel was the best experience ever. Celia provided expert advice, set up all activities, tickets, transportation, and tour guides that were excellent. My trip to France (which was postponed twice due to Covid) was a birthday gift to my mom for her 80th birthday. She has not stopped talking about the overwhelming joy it was and I have Celia and French side travel to thank. Anyone looking for a great experience and professional experts, this is the agency to choose. I am thankful, grateful, and very happy with the service provided.
Helpful, responsive and had very good suggestions
I used French Side Travel by picking them from their nice website. Not my usual way of doing things but they turned out to be the right choice. They helped my wife and I frame a two-week trip around a wedding we attended in Toulon. They were helpful, responsive, and had very good suggestions. From the hotels to transportation to the private guide we had in Normandy for three days, the stress was taken out and the fun put in. Just what I had in mind and then some. Happy to recommend them.
They made our first time in France absolutely incredible!
We used French Side Travel to plan our first visit to South France. They made our first time in France absolutely incredible! Despite the time difference, very responsive, professional. Very reasonably priced for the service they provide. I will definitely use them again, already thinking of my next trip to France!
A true-life experience
I want to thank you all at French Side Travel for organizing a true “life experience” and to give you some feedback from what has been a tremendous trip to France specifically where your company was involved.
…Wonderful driver and guide… He served as our knowledgeable driver and expert wine guide. Absolutely superb! … the visit to the wineries all were exceptional, with each visit what I would call a very private and sophisticated review of their chateau. The cooking class also was superb and very fun. And the trip to Arcachon, including a trip to la dune du Pilat (a good hike up the dune) and oyster tasting, was different and fun. Again highly recommend it… a very sincere thank you to all for developing a wonderful itinerary and for managing all the details. If we or our friends will be heading to France we will be in touch.
Thank you and be well.
We met some of the most wonderful people!
We really loved our time here and the activities you had planned
We met some of the most wonderful people. I will be contacting you for our next trip and would 100% recommend you to anyone traveling to France.
Very high-quality itinerary planning
Used French Side Travel to plan a trip to Bordeaux and Paris. Outstanding planning (Andrew S) and management of details (Celia). Very high-quality itinerary planning with top-notch guides and transportation. Will use it again. Highly recommend
An excellent and stress-free trip
We used FrenchSide to help us plan our honeymoon in France! It was the first time either of us had used a travel agent. There were so many things that we wanted to see that we decided to let someone else narrow down into a trip that was relaxing but made it possible for us to see the things we wanted too. Matthew at Trailside helped us narrow down our trip, made recommendations to things we hadn’t even thought about, and helped stay completely within our budget while getting to do excursions that felt luxuriously out of budget. Because we ended up traveling while Covid-19 was still a concern they were very flexible with us and our contact while we were in France, Emilie was amazing at helping us book Covid tests to come back into the US and getting us options when something we had planned to do turned out to be unavailable. It made for an excellent and stress-free trip.
I highly recommend
They did a wonderful job finding unique experiences for the whole family. They were extremely flexible in letting me do some of my own and supplementing with just the right activities. . It made everything about our experience so easy. I highly recommend it.
Great for getting a personalized experience
After deciding fairly last minute to travel to France and explore a new region (Bordeaux), I found French Side Travel online and was impressed with their abundance of information and options for personalizing your trip. In addition to creating a fun, diverse itinerary, they coordinated all of my travel and accommodations. The tours themselves were either private or small, which was great for getting a personalized experience in the city and vineyards. They were also very flexible and responsive with me during the trip when I asked to switch the timing of tours. Very much recommended.
