Trip Planning and Booking – home chef, tickets and groceries! – June, 2017
Thank you so much for your excellent work and all of the care you put into our trip - we had the best time here in Paris, in large part from all of your help organizing our activities. Thank you and we will be in touch when we are here next!
Welcome to Paris Panier – May, 2017
Your welcome basket was the perfect little surprise for my wife! From the gorgeous flower arrangement and bottle of wine to a nice canvas tote and her new favorite soap, the basket was as romantic as it was pragmatic!
Many of the treats included in the basket became staples of our trip! Fresh squeezed orange juice, pain au chocolat and seasonal berries (do I have to mention baguette and french butter?) Thank you, Karina, for setting the tone for our incredible Parisian get away!
Itinerary planning and booking – April, 2017
Karina is a friendly, helpful and thorough travel planner. We had not been to Paris before and she was beyond helpful with the details and planning of our visit. She kindly answered each of our questions promptly and with excellent recommendations. She knew the best dates to go to certain sites and even helped plan train rides to travel to desired locations. She also recommended places to visit in nearby areas and made restaurant recommendations. Having Karina purchase our tickets and tours in advance and deliver them to us was extremely convenient and expedited our trip planning. We would certainly recommend her services to anyone traveling to Paris, whether a first time or frequent visitor.
‘La Famille’ panier and itinerary planning – April, 2017
Bonjour Karina ~ What a delight to arrive to such an exceptional display of gourmet goodies that you selected for us! It was displayed beautifully! We made a nice meal for ourselves and as you said we have lots left over to enjoy for the week.
I am happy to report that my family (especially my husband 😉 is so pleased with the panier! Well done!
Thank you also for your assistance with obtaining the museum passes & creating an itinerary.
Orientation visit of neighborhood, and insider tips and planning – April, 2017
We have been to Paris several times and instead of a hotel, we decided to stay in an apartment for the first time. Finding Karina was very helpful. We spent a few hours with her. She is like a super concierge person at a great hotel. She helped us buy food, plan tours, find restaurants, showed us the important places near the apartment, helped us with metro cards , etc. This was the perfect way to get oriented and organized if you are staying in an apartment or have a lot of questions. She was terrific and we highly recommend her.
‘La Famille’ panier and advice for travelling to Paris with vegetarians and vegans – March, 2017
I would like to thank you for your service which helped to make our family vacation in Paris very comfortable. It was wonderful to arrive after a long flight to our apartment and have the kitchen already stocked with so many of the items that my husband, three daughters and I would need. We were glad to have some wonderful things to eat and drink in the apartment for a few days until we were a bit more settled and ready to do a little more shopping. We loved the French baguette and assortment of cheeses and the snacks and fresh juice and assorted yoghurts. The copious amount of fresh fruits and vegetables were well appreciated. It was wonderful to have good quality coffee on hand and the wine for the evening was a lovely touch.
It was also helpful to receive your tips on Paris and vegetarian and vegan restaurants. You were responsive and easy to communicate with and you accommodated our varied dietary requests very well. There were many thoughtful additions like stamped postcards and metro tickets.
I would highly recommend your service to any visitors to Paris. Thank you for your attention to detail. I was very pleased that you were recommended to us by Guest Apartment Services. Thank you Karina.
Gift basket, restaurant reservations, arranging a cooking class – March, 2017
We loved working with Karina! She customized a most beautiful panier for my mother's 70th birthday filled with an exceptional champagne, three delicious cheeses and accompaniments, the freshest baguette and cherry tomatoes, a sweet bouquet of roses and a card with a birthday note from my sister and myself. It felt so personalized and was such a treat to find it waiting for us when we arrived after our 16 hour flight! But Karina provided amazing service way beyond the panier! We were in touch by text and email throughout our stay, and she was always so quick to respond - answering so many questions about restaurants and cultural activities. She helped us get set up with a wonderful market tour and cooking class and made dinner reservations for just about every night of our stay. It was such a relief to have help with our dining plans and all of her recommendations were excellent. I cannot recommend Travel Light Paris enough. Working with Karina truly enriched our experience in Paris - and definitely made it easier and more delicious!!
Arranging and booking tickets, shows and wine tasting – January, 2017
I am very grateful to Kimberly who indicated you and your service, to greatly facilitate my stay in Paris. Your punctuality and sympathy pleased me greatly. And all the services requested, were promptly done and beyond, giving us assistance until minutes before the shows. Thank you so much.
We loved the wine tasting. As a wine lover, I learned and had amazing information. The oenologist very friendly and knowledgeable, made us travel in the aromas, flavors and sensations. It was a great experience and I recommend it.
In all my trips back to Paris, I would love to repeat the experience.
Planning and restaurant booking – December, 2016
We used Karina to help organise a day trip to Paris for a Christmas party for 44 people! She was so helpful and as a result of her help the whole day was seamless. The restaurant she recommended was superb, we could not have done it without her!
Decorated Christmas tree and assistance – December, 2016
