Insights from a local trip planner in Paris
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.
