          Best Normandy Tour Available
          We took a private tour in October 2023 with three people. Our guide Phillipe was amazing. His knowledge of the area and history is unparalleled. The van was extremely comfortable and luxurious. The restaurant we went to for lunch was delicious. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to visit Normandy from Paris.

          Wonderful Company!
          A wonderful private tour service. Philippe is extremely knowledgeable and adds so much to the day by sharing all of his insights. We learned so much about Monet and Giverny on our tour. It was a pleasure to spend the day with Phillipe and we highly recommend Best of France Tours. I look forward to booking another tour with Philippe when I return to Paris.

          Professional, Educational and Fun. A must book!
          This is my second tour with Best of France and I will book a third next year. We were two couples on our most recent tour to Giverny and Auvers Sur-Oise. Frederic, our Best of France guide, was a true professional. He picked us up in a large Mercedes van at our VRBO in the city center and skillfully drove us outside of Paris, commenting on landmarks and sites along the way. He carefully guided us through the gardens at Giverny, offering perceptive insight on Monet and his works. After a delicious sandwich at a local cafe, we toured Auvers-Sur-Oise, where Van Gogh spent his last days. Frederic is an expert in art, history and culture. We also appreciated his local travel tips for our stay in Paris. He was mindful of our needs, friendly, and respectful. His English was excellent, but he would also speak French when we tried. When touring with Best of France, there is no worry, they will take care of every detail.

          Rouen & Honfleur Private Day Trip was outstanding!
          We had the best day and highly recommend the Rouen & Honfleur Private Day Trip. Our guide, Frederic, was a wonderful combination of driver and guide. He was very knowledgeable of the area, its history and current trends. He took us to so many places, very competently judging when we wanted to linger or move at a faster pace.It was a delightful way to see some beautiful places outside of Paris. Don't hesitate to reserve this trip.

          Inspirational and so Beautiful!
          I combed through aviator for a half day trip to Giverny that would pick us up at our hotel. We hired Best of France tours to take us, two 66 and two 69 year olds. Frederic Meunier picked us up on time. He entertained and educated us all the way to Giverny. He guided us quickly to Monet’s house as the line was comparatively short. Guides are not allowed in with the groups so he to,d us what to look for. We met back up with him . We toured the gardens while he told us about the. The gardens themselves are stunning as are the water lilys. We felt Frederic was invaluable and would happily us him again. On the way back into Paris he recommended the Mormottan Monet museum in the 16th arr., where he dropped us off. It was our “Monet Day”. It was wonderful.

          Paris in a nutshell
          Frederic was great. Informative and pleasant. We were only going to be in the city for a short period of time and our 4 hour tour was perfect to get a taste of the city.

          We had Frederic as our guide and he was great...very knowledgeable and could answer all of our questions. He was very efficient in getting us in & out of the places we needed to be. Plus, he took us to an awesome local crepe restaurant for lunch. Very nice tour!

          Excellent experience with a seasoned guide
          Had an excellnt trip to Giverny with Frederic from Best of France Tours. Frederic picked us up at our rental, was personable, very knowledgeable, and had a good dry sense of humor. He's been doing this for 22+ years and knew his way around the sites, knew the people there, gave great tours, answered any questions we had, and could take great pictures of us too! Highly recommended.

          Beautiful Chateau and Magnificent Stables and Horse Spectacular.
          I booked a day trip from Paris to Chantilly with my 11 year old granddaughter. We chose this because she loves horses, but the chateau, grounds, and museum are all exceptional. It is a great way to get outside of Paris and see some beautiful things you would never expect to find. In addition, there is a horse production on Sunday afternoons called Totem that is presented in the 18th century arena that was fun to see. Best of France Tours handled all the arrangements. Frederic was an excellent driver/guide and we were picked up right at our hotel in a very comfortable Mercedes van. Frederic speaks very fluent and clear English and his knowledge of the estate and the treasures it contains made the day very enjoyable. He made every effort to provide for our needs and he did an excellent job engaging my granddaughter.

          An incredible visit!
          Each time we visit France we always call on Best of France Tours. They are professional, extremely knowledgeable and always have a "surprise" site or stop on any tour we've taken. Our tour of Normandy Beaches with Phillipe was extraordinary. My future son in law was with us on his first trip to France and a WWII history buff. He was so impressed with all the new information and uniqueness of the various sites and monuments on the tour. Phillipe has been in the tour business over 20 years and it shows! He knew many of the people at various restaurants and historical privately owned sites and took us a little "off the beaten path" in some areas. Their Mercedes van pick up from our hotel with drives to the sites was prompt and comfortable Do yourself a favor and book with Best of France!

          Best Tour Service in Paris
          Group of senior lady friends visited Paris for 3 days and were treated like Royalty by Phillipe, Fredric and Jose Luis! From our first contact with Phillipe about arranging a limo and driver to pick up at the Gare du Nord, touring Paris, delivery to their hotel and return to the train, was perfect! Friendly, polite, knowledgeable, right on time, reasonably priced! Highly, highly recommend!

          The Best Tour Company in Paris
          My husband who recently had knee replacement surgery and I spent two days in Paris to see the highlights in a way that wouldn’t be too taxing . Frederic our driver and guide picked us up from our hotel and took us on a city tour, tour of the Louve and the next day out to Versailles. Frederic was knowledgeable, saavy of our surroundings and graciously found us wheelchair accommodations so that my husband could enjoy our adventures thoroughly. If we were staying longer we would have asked Frederic to fashion another tour for us! It was a pleasure hearing the history of this wonderful city from someone who clearly loves what he does and is excellent at his job! Merci Frederic!

          Perfect Paris Immersion
          We spent a week in Paris and were fortunate enough to start our holiday with Frederic showing us some of the city’s iconic offerings. Frederic’s extensive knowledge of art and history made our visits to the Louvre, Mont Martre, and Versailles meaningful and enlightening. Frederic was a consummate professional and always met us promptly and expressed his desire to honor our preferences. His wit and charm made our time spent on his tours engaging and enjoyable. When you visit Paris, Frederic and Best of France Tours will ensure you have a memorable experience.

        We had a wonderful day exploring the Champagne region with Frederic Meunier as our guide. His English was excellent! He was knowledgeable and shared a lot of interesting information about the region and the champagne houses we visited. Frederic took us to a local restaurant which was very enjoyable, and the food was terrific. It was a day to remember!

        Frederic made our day in Champagne absolutely perfect. He arranged for us to tour one large Champagne House, along with two smaller Houses, that we would never have known about. He also directed us to a fantastic restaurant for lunch. I have limited mobility needs and he went out of his way to make the trip manageable for me. This attention to detail is so valuable and appreciated! He also easily engaged with my young adult children and was knowledgeable in pretty much everything! My kids words “hands down the best tour guide we’ve ever had.” Highly highly recommend!

        This tour was recommended by a close friend with very high standards and it met all my expectations.too. We were led by Frederic who was prompt to pick us up, choose three small growers for us as my friend said they were a lot more "interesting" and personable. We were not let down by the quality of the locations, the tastings, the knowledge of Frederic and the experience. Best Of France Tours made the experience worth every moment and every dollar as an experience of a lifetime. We were all very pleased. This was a 5 star day. Merci, Frederic. Jon

We spent the morning at Veuve-Clicquot and the afternoon at Mason Penet-Chardonnet. We had lunch in Reims and toured the Reims Cathedral. The day was fantastic and we would recommend it to anyone!

        Philippe, our guide and driver was absolutely amazing. He's originally from the Champagne region so extremely knowledgable on it. He booked great champagne houses for us to visit and knew all the best scenic spots. He took care of restaurant reservations and the timing of the whole 2 days. We got to spend time in the whole area. From the minute we were in touch I knew we were in very good hands. I can't honestly imagine a better experience than the one he made for us. The mode of transport was a brand new 6 passenger van. If you are thinking of doing any sort of guided trip out of Paris, look no further, Best of France tours more than lives up to its name!

He was very thoughtful about choosing which champagne houses we toured, and it was so fun to learn about the region and French history from him. Hotel pick up and drop off made the trip convenient and easy, and the car was spacious & comfortable. Overall the tour was fun, enjoyable, interesting, and well organized.

        I booked this tour with the expectation that it would be a PRIVATE tour. What we ended up getting was a really expensive driver who took us to only 2 Champagne houses. Even though Vueve Cliquot is advertised as one of the stops, it is actually not an option.
        The driver picked us up at our hotel and drove us about 2 hours to the Champagne region, during the trip up, he gave us some "Snapple facts" about Paris.
        Once we arrived at the first Champagne house, we had to 2 other groups (about 10 people) for the cellar and tasting tour.... we were a little annoyed since this is NOT what private tour means... after we left the first Champagne House, we again drove to second Champagne house, and there, again the driver, handed us off to the Champagne house to give us a tour, this time we had to Join a 20 person group/ tasting, with a crying baby.

        Our whole intention in Paying over $1,200 was to avoid crowds, and have a private tour, where we had more attention from the guide and the Champagne House.. I would NOT recommend this to anyone who is seeking a private tour, Save your money, get an uber, rent a car, or hire a driver for the day, and save yourself $1,000...

        Dear Sir, we deeply regret that you booked this private Champagne tour only three days before the tour date in early July (one of the busiest times of the year), not really knowing what you were booking and most of all without contacting us first. You chose to book this tour via Viator, owned by Tripadvisor, who are charging all their tour providers worldwide a 25% commission fee, hence the price you paid. You did not specify which Champagne houses you wanted to visit like Veuve Clicquot that you are mentioning. Viator/Tripadvisor simply sent us a tour confirmation saying « specific request: none ». We do precise online that you will visit two Champagne houses and that you need to tell us which ones you would like to visit. You did not do it. If you would have just called us or even written us an email before the tour, you probably would not have booked the tour and would not be as disappointed as you seem. You did have a private tour, including private transportation (only you and your guests in the van including pick up & drop off at your accommodation in Paris) and a private licensed tour guide driving you and commenting about the Champagne region. The smaller producer you visited in the morning is one of the finest in the region. They can also include sometimes some of their guests (they also have a B’nB) in the tour. We never promise a private tour inside the cellars. It would be like asking a private tour in the Louvre or in the castle of Versailles without anyone else in the museums ! Some big Champagne houses do offer the possibility of a private visit inside the cellars if you make a reservation weeks/months ahead of time, however when you booked it was too late & since you did not communicate with us at all, we selected the best options for you on such short notice. For a private tour in their cellars, Veuve Clicquot charges 550 euros extra, Ruinart & Moet & Chandon/Dom Perignon 600 euros extra for a party of 5. Shared tours in the cellars are way less. We have been giving exactly the same kind of tours since 2000 to hundreds of clients who were extremely happy with their tour experience with us. We hope that this review will help many travelers in the future: please do contact us first and ask us which Champagne houses you would like to visit and we guarantee you that you will spend a great day with us in the Champagne region! And remember always: “a good trip is one you plan in advance” Sincerely, Philippe Brimont, Owner.

        I have used Philippe Brimont and his Best of France tours since 2010 each time we visit Paris. He has personally shown us Normandy (2010), Giverny (2010) and Champagne (2010 & 2018), his birthplace. His colleagues have just as expertly guided us through the castles of the Loir Valley (2013) and Mt. Saint Michel (2015). Each experience has been truly, "The Best of France". I cannot recommend him and his company highly enough. We will be returning to Paris next year with friends, and will undoubtedly be using his services again for our day excursions.
