France Just For You is delighted to have been awarded the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2019 (and also 2018) for our tours of France. The Certificate of Excellence recognizes businesses that receive consistently great user reviews. We would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to all our travelers for leaving such kind reviews on TripAdvisor! Here are a few of our favorite quotes from our TripAdvisor page:
“If you want to experience France, but are hesitant because you don’t speak the language, this company is for you. Emilie will prepare an itinerary that is so detailed that even the most inexperienced, non-French speaking traveler will be able to navigate France.”
“All of our accommodations were beyond wonderful and the restaurant suggestions were all perfect! Although we didn’t have the time to experience everything suggested, we definitely wish we did!
“Emilie is an incredible listener which was very evident when we received our itinerary. She had arranged for everything, including a French Smartphone with Google Maps, a rental car, skip-the-line tickets, a stay in a castle, wine tastings, etc. All of our accommodations were superb with hosts that spoke fluent English, were very knowledgeable about their area, and had great suggestions from restaurants to local “must do’s” and everything in-between.”
What ‘Excellence’ means to us at France Just For You
The TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence means a lot to us, because at France Just For You, we strive for excellence in everything that we do. Nothing is more important than ensuring our travelers experience the best of France through our eyes. To us, this means:
Visiting all of the bed & breakfasts before we include them in our itineraries. We have a rigorous selection process which ensures our travelers stay at the nicest accommodations with English-speaking hosts. If we have had a great experience, we are sure our travelers will too.
Trying out all of the activities ourselves. From fine restaurants, to truffle-hunting, to private cooking classes, to vineyard tours, we want to be sure our travelers will find them culturally immersive, enjoyable and memorable.
Listening to our travelers. We ask all travelers to provide us with a wish-list before we start planning their itineraries. We make sure we have a clear idea of travelers’ interests, expectations, and budgets, and we encourage travelers to ask us questions and let us know their thoughts as we build the itinerary. We want our travelers to feel as involved in the planning of their trip as they want to be, while we take care of all of the finer details, such as booking tickets, arranging car hire and producing the personalized, detailed guidebook for the trip.
Offering experiences that most tours don’t offer. We understand that our travelers will be keen to see the main places of interest during their trip, and we help them to experience the best of these attractions by pre-booking skip-the-line tickets and private tours. We also send them to some special places off the well-worn tourist track to help them have a more authentic experience of French culture and heritage. This might mean a private cooking class at the home of a local chef in Provence, and then having dinner with him and his family. It might mean a picnic in a private vineyard, or a private tour of the Normandy landing beaches. Whatever your wishes, we will do all we can to make every experience unique and special.
Producing a detailed France Just For You guidebook that is unique to every trip. This includes the full itinerary of the trip, restaurant recommendations, additional activities that travelers may like to try if they have time, tips on safety and etiquette, useful French phrases and much more.
Always being at the end of the phone. We include a Smartphone in our travel pack which comes with unlimited internet access, all the most useful apps pre-installed, Google Maps and Waze to help with GPS navigation, and a digital copy of your travel guidebook so you can easily consult your itinerary whenever you need to. If you encounter any difficulties during your trip or just need some advice, you can use your Smartphone to call Emilie at France Just For You and she will be happy to help.
Leaving our travelers with a unique souvenir of their trip. Their personalized travel guidebook will be a lifelong souvenir that travelers can come back to again and again whenever they want to reminisce. We also give recommendations in the book of where to buy the most authentic souvenirs of France to take home.
