Travel Planning and Booking – October, 2021
I use Travel Light every time I visit Paris. Karina is wonderful! Our most recent trip was a month long and we had different groups of friends and family coming to stay with us. Karina arranged our restaurant reservations, sightseeing trips, cooking classes, batteaux lunch, Eiffel tower dinner, museum passes, bicycle rentals and cabaret tickets. She helped us make plans for day trips to the Loire and Bordeaux. She arranged a French lesson with a local tutor and researched ateliers for painting classes. She even helped us navigate the vaccine pass we needed. I can't say enough good things about Karina! Working with her feels like having a local friend who helps you set up an amazing Parisian experience!!
Accompanying a client during his stay in Paris – August, 2021
Karina was incredibly helpful and I wholeheartedly recommend her and Travel Light Paris. Karina accompanied my father in Paris for two days, taking him to places he wanted to see, suggesting sites he had never visited, navigating public transport, and helping him renew his sanitary pass. My father, who has been to Paris several times, was delighted by her suggestions and enjoyed her company. She's accessible, friendly, and very helpful.
Planning and Booking your Stay in Paris – October, 2019
Karina was a delight to work with. I found her on Pinterest and due to time constraints, I needed help planning our trip to Paris. She had many different options to choose from and I picked the plan where she buys all the tickets and schedules everything. She FaceTimed me for about an hour and got a general idea of what we wanted to do. We emailed back and forth multiple times and even talked on the phone. She scheduled everything, gave us recommendations for other things we could do and was available during our trip. We were going to go back to Paris in October of this year but due to Covid our trip is postponed. When we head back to Paris, I will use Karina again. Thank you so much Karina.

Our trip to Paris was fantastic due to Karina and her expert knowledge in planning an itinerary filled with exciting activities. Karina was always helpful during the week we visited Paris by rearranging activities whenever necessary and giving us any assistance we required. Karina was always pleasant, reliable and quick to respond. Planning our trip before and during was a delight. I highly recommend Karina’s expertise. A true joy!
Planning Q & A Session – January, 2020
I reached out to Karina of Travel Light Paris for assistance with some plans and restaurant reservations for my solo trip to Paris in January 2020. She was very responsive, and her ideas were personalized to my interests. I would not hesitate to reach out to Karina again in the future for my next trip to Paris. Her services are completely worth it.
Neighbourhood orientation walk – October, 2019
Arranging museum tickets and activities – November, 2019
Karina was a great resource for our trip and provided us with theater tickets, suggested exhibitions and was able to get difficult (timed) museum entry tickets for us as well. She met us with the physical tickets and continued to answer questions and provide us with suggestions throughout our stay. It is like having a friend in Paris who tells you what is going on. I would recommend her services very highly.
Christmas Tree – delivered and decorated – December, 2019
Having holidayed in Paris for many years now, our recent stays in apartments allow us more flexibility in the experience. Where it is always a great pleasure going out to bistros, brasseries and fine restaurants; we too enjoy hunting and gathering wonderful french food and delicacies, and preparing our version of french cooking in the ambience of a period apartment overlooking the Seine - while slipping a glass of Champagne of course. Lovely Karina of Travel Light Paris made our holiday all the more perfect by selecting and decorating a magical Christmas tree to alight our little pied de terra. She is such a pleasure to work with and perfects any detail of the French capital's many offerings. With our sincerest thanks, I recommend her services to all staying in Paris for your first or fiftieth time to make it all the more special.
Planning and Booking your Stay in Paris – June/July, 2019
I was traveling solo to Paris for about a month. I contacted Karina of Travel Light Paris to help me plan some tours. There was a wonderful food tour in Marais and St Germain, a private market tour with a chef (fantastic) and tour to Giverny and Monet’s garden. I actually met Karina, who is so nice, and she walked with me to a local street market and helped me navigate the Metro. She also booked transportation to and from the apartment. Even though she does not book apartments, she steered me to a wonderful apartment in the 7th just a block away from Rue Cler. I could ask for her opinion about other apartments or tours. A big help!
