Mike: My wife and I will be at Hyatt Vendome from
29 May through 2 June.
For the last year I have been trying to learn
some French language by reading and reciting-
Sempe: Le petit Nicolas
Le Clezio: Lullaby
George Simenon: La Ginguette a doux sous
My method of study has been:
1) Each week I have two 1 hour Skype sessions with my native french speaking teacher.
2) I translate a paragraph from french to english.
3) my teacher corrects the translation.
4) My teacher speaks the paragraph in french.
5) I repeat the paragraph after her.
6) She corrects my pronunciation.
This has been our method for about 16 months.
So I am improving at reading.
But I have zero experience with listening and with speaking the French language.
Perhaps for one or two days you could-
1) show us some non-tourist parts of Paris?
2) while guiding us, try to interact with me in the French language? You would have to be very patient.
My wife is be able to walk a few hundred meters, slowly (she has some arthritis). We would need to rely on taxis for this reason. I am in good physical shape. I am 67 years old, my wife is 64.
To me our excursions would be very low-key with
limited goals. I am interested in seeing a bit of French life in Paris- how do the French people live in paris:
1) their restaurants/bistros/cafes
2) their parks
3) their grocery stores
4) book stores
6) university campus
7) their stores of all kinds
8) puppet show in park
10) river/canal boat tour
Not so interested in the usual tourist destinations.
What do you think?
Are you possibly interested in working with us?
Jolanda: Below please find the brief of our clients. We are a private office and I am trying to organise this trip for Sunday 18 October and wondered if you can help.
Date; Sunday 18 October
Departure time: 10.00 am (slightly flexible)
We are looking for a 2 hour country side walk (3 hours max) from either Hotel Costes or a 30 minute journey (car or train) away from the hotel.
The party consists of a minimum of 5 and maximum of 8 well educated people.
Although our client is a keen walker, de rest of his party is fit but are not professional hikers.
The walk to end in a châteaux or an ‘auberge’ with roaring open fire, for a long leisurely lunch.
They will be wearing trainers rather than walking boots.
Please advise 2 different options including costs. They are flexible to depart from any airport around Paris.
They have a driver at their disposal so don't need any transport.
If you require any more information, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Many thanks for all your help.
Janice: We are a family of three - with my 4 year old daughter and we are in our mid 30's.
We are planning to make a trip over to Paris via London (eurostar) and stay for at least 3 nights in Paris.
We would love to see Paris in a relaxed manner as we have a 4 year old with us.We plan to take a train over to Disney for a day trip (would that be sufficient)and the rest of the days would be to see the tourists attractions.Eiffel Tower would be a must.;) .With a bit of childrens tour + culture n history;(hubby is a fan of Napoleon),arts n crafts n minimal shopping...
Would you be able to plan out an itinerary for us and suggest a few places (hotels) to stay..would prefer a small quaint boutique hotel as they are usually more personalised instead of the standard usual hotels (eg;Ramada,Hilton,Sofitel) ..has to be child friendly, though.
From paris, we plan to take the rail tour over to Switzerland (4 days)and Italy-4days (Florence n Rome) and then back by flight from Rome to London.
Liz: My husband, sister and I will be in France the end of May. When we first arrive, we will be spending 3 nights in Normandy with Friends. We are interested in hiring a guide for Tuesday, May 25 to take us back to Paris from and do a day of touring the country between the Normandy area and Paris. Two things we are particularly interested in seeing is Chartres and Giverney. Don't know if it is possible to see both of these on the way back to Paris or if you have other suggestions.
I noticed you spent time in Japan. My husband has a great interest in Japan so I believe he would enjoy hearing of some of your experiences there as well.
Would you be available on the 25th to do this tour? If so, what would the charge be and does is make sense to try to see both Chartes Cathedral and Giverney on the way back to Paris? Do you have other suggestions?
