Travel Planning and Booking – June, 2022
Thank you again for helping us plan a memorable celebration of our first anniversary. The Mass on Saturday evening at The Church of Saint Sulpice was unique. To be able to attend Mass in a church that was built in 1646 with murals painted by Eugene Delacroix just added to the memory of our anniversary. On Sunday, our anniversary celebration at Monet’s Garden in Giverny was beyond our expectations and the lunch at Le Jardin des Plumes was exceptional. The staff made us feel so welcome; the location perfect; and all of the 5 course gourmet dishes were delicious. After a 2-1/2 hour lunch, we didn’t think we could eat again for a week! As you recommended, we finished up the day with a visit to the Marmottan Museum to view Monet’s works of art! It was well worth the trip.
All in all, the Paris trip was so much more special because of your attention to detail and recommendation of venues. We will definitely recommend you to our friends who may be planning a trip to Paris.
Paris Concierge Services – May, 2022
We rented an apartment for a month, and Karina played a pivotal role in ensuring a wonderful visit to Paris. As our own personal concierge, Karina did everything from make recommendations for meals in each arrondissement, to make us aware of (and book) exhibits at museums around the city. She learned our tastes before our trip and then executed flawlessly to ensure we got what we needed. She confirmed/cancelled reservations, set us up with guides, helped facilitate appointments for various personal needs, and so much more. She also has know,edge of great spits outside the city, including wine tasting and Versailles. She is responsive, kind, and takes pride in what she does. An enthusiastic double thumbs up for Karina!

Travel Planning and On the Ground Assistance – April, 2022
Karina at Travel Light Paris made my (our) trip to Paris perfect! I was traveling to Paris with four members of my family for a one week visit. I wanted to see what I wanted to see comfortably. I am a 86 year old woman and I was traveling with my daughter-in-law, her parents and my grandson, age 14.
We were in Paris to visit my granddaughter who was there for her Junior Year of college. Not knowing if I am going to get to Paris ever again, I had a few items on my "bucket list" that I wanted to see. I was so lucky to get in touch with Karina at Travel Light Paris and explained what I needed. Karina was FANTASTIC! She understood what I needed and we worked
together to set up a plan for my week stay. The plan had options for everyone in the group, even ideas for the 14 year old grandson. It ended up that everyone wanted to join Karina and me as we spent three days visiting the sites on my list. Karina mapped out the itinerary, got the tickets, picked me (us) up at the hotel, took us to the museums, knew where to get lunch, and how to maneuver the travel from place to place. Karina was so pleasant, helpful, fun to be with, and efficient--we could not have managed without her and her knowledge of Paris. I recommend hiring Karina for any of your travel plans in Paris.

Karina did a fabulous job planning the trip my daughter and I took to Paris! I would highly recommend her services. She communicates very quickly. She set up things based on our interests. She even gave us directions from our apartment to all the activities and tours. She had great recommendations. She advised the days and times to book different tours and shows. She made dining recommendations and set up dining reservations. She sent all the links to book the activities. Everything went very smoothly. The private driver she set up was excellent. I would advise anyone going to Paris to use her services.

Had a lovely trip over Christmas break. Karina planned all of our tours and dinners and it was fabulous. All restaurants were an experience on its own and delicious. We got to have lunch in the Eiffel tower. Tour the Louvre, L'Orangerie and d'Orsay. It was great and she communicated very well with us and made some suggestions when things were cancelled by Covid. Loved it.

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.
