Planning and Booking your Stay in Paris – June, 2019
Karina was absolutely amazing to work with – very professional, detail oriented and coordinated everything from our arrival in Paris to our last evening dinner cruise on the Seine and everything in between. She was always available during our trip to make recommendations, get our Metro passes or make changes as needed. I would highly recommend using her services – for a first time trip to Paris, it exceeded our expectations due to her fantastic travel planning.
Planning and Booking your Stay in Paris – May, 2019
Planning our first visit to Paris was uncharted territory. I wanted it to be special for my wife. We were most fortunate to find Karina Clarke of Travel Light Paris and secure her services for our first visit. Karina delivered far beyond our expectations in providing guidance and facilitating many desirable activities. She is a personable and intelligent individual who really cares about making things go so well. Her familiarity with Paris and all of France in general was so beneficial regarding places to stay, dine, and sights to see. The time she spent giving invaluable input was so generous considering her very fair fees. I can highly recommend all that she offers including a personal delivery of a panier to your accommodations with fresh and delectable treats. If you are fortunate enough to retain Karina as your concierge your visit will be exceptionally better in every category. Thank you Karina, you are the very best concierge that made our visit so very special!
Welcome to Paris Panier – April, 2019
Bonjour! We loved our trip and your wonderful welcome eased us into a perfect trip (even after a 12 hour plane flight!). We looked at your flowers all week and my husband said the juice and jam you brought were the best he’s ever had. My kids had fun with the postcards. I have your Travel Light bag hanging next to my desk to remind me of our trip.
Itinerary Planning and Booking Service – April, 2019
Planning Q & A Session – December, 2018
I worked with Karina using one of her virtual 'Planning Q&A Sessions', to help plan a last-minute 5 day mini-vacation to Paris with my wife and 3.5yr old. My wife and I have visited Paris before, but this was our first trip with our little guy with us. She was exactly the resource I was looking for, offering great advice on family-friendly things to do/see, restaurants, fun winter/Christmas markets, and some 'under the radar' events around town that I never would have discovered otherwise. It was well worth the money to do the virtual consultation, and I would recommend her without reservations to anyone looking for some inspired/informed ideas on how to plan a great visit to Paris.
Decorated Christmas tree – December, 2018
If you want to take your stay in paris beyond perfect, I would highly recommend contacting Travel Light Paris for the extras that add to the memories and make Paris even more pleasurable. They will stock your fridge, cater a deluxe welcome basket, of even bring in and decorate a festive Christmas Tree as the did for Commendable Rentals' Paris Marais 4 bedroom apartment, Vivaldi , to the delight of our guests who had booked it for Christmas. They loved the tree, and Karina was wonderful to work with. The tree was artful and delivery and clean-up were both marvelously efficient. We will work with Travel Light Paris again and again.

Stocking the apartment -November, 2018
Karina, thank you so much for your grocery shopping and delivery to our rental apartment even though our rental was changed at the last minute due to a broken elevator. You retrieved all of the items from the first apartment and delivered them to the new apartment before we even arrived from the airport! What great service and a life saver after zillions of hours of travel. You are the best!
Guided full day tour of Versailles – November, 2018
Karina helped me book a full day tour of Versailles for a multi-generational group. She responded right away to all my questions and found us the perfect tour guide. She also worked with us to create a unique itinerary when we wanted to visit a local wine store on the way back to Paris. I would absolutely recommend Karina and I look forward to working with her again on my next trip to Paris!
Neighbourhood/Market Visit – October, 2018
Booking with Karina was the best decision we’ve made while traveling! Learned WAY more than being on our own and as such, will certainly get more out of our time here. Worth every penny. And speaking of cost, more than reasonable given the personal and kind attention Karina gave us both throughout the entire tour. She was kind, generous and extremely knowledgeable. If there was a way to rate 6 stars, we would! Thank you again Karina!
Parisian Aperitif Panier – October, 2018
We ordered a panier (basket) from Karina for our 1st day in Paris. It was wonderful..wine, cheese, nuts, jam, meats , crackers , pate and some salad. OMG...it was sooo good. It is for 4 so we 2 had it for two nights. Easy to order and pay. She delivered directly to the apartment and right on time. I would order again!
