The main reason people contact a trip planner for arranging a trip to Paris is because they want to get local knowledge for arranging their trip: where to stay in Paris, what to do, what are the trendy spots, the main attractions that cannot be missed? A guide book will tell you all this, however what about new restaurants that opened up just a few months ago, or how to get the best ticket deals for climbing the Eiffel Tower, where to stay if you love old buildings, or if you have a more limited budget for your trip? A trip planner will help you solve all these questions.

A local Paris trip planner will also guide you in your choices. Versailles for instance is a big attraction close to Paris. But if you have only 2 days and you are coming in Winter, it would be better stay within the city. There is already so much to be visited there.

Another situation where a trip planner will be of great help is for those who do not have much time to dedicate to planning a trip, yet want a perfectly planned and arranged program in Paris. It takes a lot of time to organize and process the booking of hotels, tickets, and meals. Not only does planning a trip take a significant amount of time, but to get the best choices you need local expertise. A full program offered to you by a trip planner can include: a selection of hotels suited to you and a full itinerary with all the tickets booked in advance.  In this way you save time before departing by letting a trip planner organize all the details of travel and also when you arrive, because you won’t have to queue.

A local trip planner will help you decide on your program based on your tastes, choices, budget, and time.

For groups of more than 10 people, you need to plan your trip in advance. Whether you come with relatives, your colleagues, or for a corporate event, all these situations need advance bookings. Finding a hotel for more than 10 may be tricky, especially if you are looking for attractive prices. Besides the accommodation, you had better plan all activities and your itinerary in advance, to avoid loosing time while in Paris. Monuments visits are not everything, we also recommend booking the restaurants in advance if you are more than 10 people, otherwise you may end up eating at the hotel most of the time. The food may be good, but you will miss out on a Parisian experience.

A Paris trip planner will be of great assistance in choosing your hotel, negotiating the prices, arranging an itinerary and booking your restaurants in advance. You will probably end up saving money as well since group prices can easily be negotiated, as long as they are agreed on in advance.

Organizing a corporate event in Paris will definitely give motivation and rewards to your employees and add prestige to your company. This is true as long as your event is precisely prepared and organized. A group trip for more than 10 people must be planned in advance. Especially if this is a business trip, as people tend to complain more when a corporate events has little flaws.

A Paris trip planner will arrange the hotel, to your company’s budget, design a program combining Paris visits & team building activities and agree with you in advance on a 100% tailor-made offer.


Specific requests

Besides all those cases, as soon as you have specific requests, such as transport to/from other cities, a precise idea of what kind of hotel you want or any specific requests you should definitely contact a Paris trip planner to ask for suggestions, advice and price quote.
