Do you speak tourist ?

Finally a great initiative to improve the quality of the welcome of more than 33 million tourists in Paris area every year.

Paris Chamber of Commerce is taking the lead to carry a great campaign to the taxi drivers, hotels, restaurants and storekeepers in the capital of France for them to improve their quality of service to the foreign travelers. This is really true that French people, especially in Paris, have a lot of efforts to make in improving their English skills and understanding the needs of foreign travelers.

This website: www.doyouspeaktouriste.fr  (which is obviously only in French) provides a lot of information on tourists’ expectations, depending on their country of origin.

For instance, according to “Do you speak tourist?”, American travelers expect to get “full package personal services” and they particularly like Paris by night…Spanish travelers like better architecture…The Japanese: fashion and shopping…The Chinese: luxury shopping before all…

Maybe a little exaggerated? YES, but it won’t hurt the tourism workers to get some reminders on the basics.

Cannot speak highly enough of our experience with Emilie and France Just for You. They attended to every detail and request. The B&Bs were welcoming and attractive - quaint and with modern conveniences. The table-d'hotes were very special and a chance to taste authentic, regional cuisine and wines. We were very thankful to discover this wonderful …
