Hi Olivier. We have had a wonderful stay indeed. A terrific cruise tour aboard your yacht, an exquisite picnic on the champ de mars… and a large part of it is in thank to you and your kind, expert care. Until next time.
I could not have managed this event of the Fêtes Galantes for 40 people without your help. You went to great lengths, above and beyond expectations, to ensure that our event was magical and everything that we dreamed it would be and even more.
I fell in love with Paris and look forward to returning. (…) I would like to think about another visit next spring. May was a good time I think. Please let me know what are your thoughts and suggestions.
Thank you thank you thank you for everything you did for us.
It was an incredible Paris trip. The team shared with me how hard you worked for us. Thank you for getting us that beautiful boat […] Thank you for the party and show at Maxims […] I heard the Païva tours were perfection and the picnic location was divine.
I wish you and I could raise a glass of champagne together right now to celebrate our collaboration! I look forward to doing it all again next year!
We brought a group of nearly 100 persons to Paris this year for our final Creation Course event, and Olivier helped us create an unforgettable trip.
This was our second event with him, and he knocked it out of the park again!
Because of his incredible contacts in Paris, he helped us secure events at several of the most exclusive and exquisite places in Paris, all while navigating our group with ease and grace.
With his personal attention and devotion to every detail, Olivier always makes us feel like we’re his only client. He has shown us again and again that he will stop at nothing to see our vision come to fruition!
Honestly, above and beyond is where Olivier starts and finishes. He exceeded all of our expectations and then some. If you’re looking to create your own unforgettable Parisian adventure, we cannot recommend him highly enough.
Following the remarkable experience we had together on a gray Parisian Friday which turns to be bright and green, I think I must share this with your site’s visitors.
We met at Hotel de la Paiva on the Champs Elysees, a beautiful mansion which seats nowadays a private Gentleman club. We got professionally introduced to the mansion’s history, art, furniture and of course the original holding family’s story.
We then step into a 1956 beautiful and taken-care-as-new Citroen Traction-Avant driven and owned by Fredéric, a passionate and very nice Gentleman.
We were taken to the Château de la Petite Malmaison west of La Defense – the small chateau Of Josephine the Empress which is privately owned today and hosts events and concerts. A beautiful and unique place to host special events.
We then went to visit the Chef Michel Antoine at his own atelier on Montmartre hillside- a small private paradise among a mid-class neighborhood where he cooks privately to small groups.
Michel-Antoine is very nice to speak with and professionalize in variety of kitchen types. We spoke about French kitchen, vegetarian, kosher, gluten-free etc. he has huge knowledge and he is happy to share with.
It was indeed a unique day. Not only visiting new sites I would have never reached without you, we met wonderful and truly nice Parisian people with interesting stories and that added a remarkable impact on the tour.
I absolutely love Olivier! He’s phenomenal in helping to plan adventures and amazing experiences which are not the typical touristy types of things…. But that create memories of a lifetime. He is extraordinary at details for a couple of people, small groups and as we found out in Paris with Mama Gena’s crew, even large groups of people. He goes above and beyond and is a great resource.
I wanted to say thank you so much for such and exquisite experience you created for us! Paiva was a dream come true, over the top fabulous. Maxim’s was extraordinary, to be in that legendary cabaret, with the spirit of Edith Piaf and all the great performers.
And Vaux Le Vicomte!!!!!!! WOW. WOW. WOW. I will never forget singing Tosca on the steps of the castle.
Thank you Olivier. You created an unforgettable experience and I will carry this with me all the days of my life. I would love to stay in touch with you. I will also recommend you to anyone I come across looking to travel to Paris. You are outstanding.
Just a note to say thank you – “Merci” for orchestrating the most magical events for us in Paris! The perfume of our desires thankfully made it to you and you were our hero. I am sure having all of us running around Paris in all our glory and making us happy was not an easy thing for you to do but you did it! It was magical and exciting and adventurous beyond anything I could have imagined. Olivier, you are charming and elegant and fun too; This is an incredible combination.
Thank you for honoring us so deeply and pulling all kinds of strings and who knows what to make it all happen.
How can I ever thank you! You have created a personal relationship between France and myself that I will forever hold in my heart.
As you know, I came with a large group of women, and with a group of that size, I never expected the type of personal and curated experience you offered.
The tour of Maxim’s you arranged, with such a knowledgeable guide, brought the entire history of this iconic restaurant alive. Walking from room to room made me feel like just around the corner I would or could see anyone from Marcel Proust to Sarah Bernhardt to the Duke of Windsor with his famous bride, Mrs. Simpson. I have taken many tours through many countries, but this intimate tour, with a guide who knew every detail and was able to wonderfully share that, was very magical. It was truly an immersion in another time, so much so that when I stepped outside, I was a bit shocked to see it was 2015. I really wanted to turn back and just have a few more minutes to savor that wonderful place in time your guide so eloquently portrayed.
Your other excursions were equally magical.(more…)
Art and luxury describes our tour perfectly. Olivier got us access where mere mortals are unwelcome, and he secured hosts and guides of unparalleled caliber. Not the highly trained tour guides we expect for our pretty penny, rather world-class experts and the owner of the most phenomenal private palace, which has been in his family for generations. Olivier, you were the epitome of grace and hospitality, and we absolutely adore you. I will certainly be in touch when I come to Paris again.
I am so pleased that Regena posted your email as I searched for your card upon my return and it was not to be seen. As I am in the travel business and only focus on high end travel, I am well aware of the value of well placed connections and a talent toward subtle social skills. You are a master of both and Iwas so pleased that you were bestowed so much attention from the most beautiful goddesses. I was also gratified to see that my suggestion and introduction of Satya resulted in a visit to the atelier of Chanel with Regena and a few other goddesses. I like to see myself as a bridge. Seeing a need and an opportunity and putting them together. Again, of this you are a master. This was my first time to Paris with this group, and while I have been to Paris many times, I have never seen such elegant details attended to by a most elegant escort.
I look forward to remaining in contact with you and hope to enjoy your company and talents again.
I cannot speak highly enough of you and your services. You curated the experience of a lifetime for me, my staff, and our 70 students that we brought with us to Paris. You are more than a tour guide – you are a historian and a true gentleman of the highest order, you will stop at nothing to deliver a magical experience for your clients. You met every one of our (sometimes outrageous) desires with enthusiasm and expertise, and over-delivered at every turn. We are already beginning to plan our next trip with you, and trust we will have many more adventures to come.
