YES, the area is magical and you deliver a fabulous tour! You are willing to accommodate your guests and are most knowledgeable of the local history. Loved our group. The places we visited were delightful and beautiful and the dinners superb. I would now love to organize a private tour to discover another region with my friends. Thank you for everything!!” — Sandie Mapp, Scottsdale, AZ

 

Yes, I would highly recommend the trip to someone interested in French culture and history. For foodies, it is the ideal travel experience. Each dining experience was unique and enjoyable, though I must say that Chefs Christophe and Angelique having us into their home was extraordinary. Cooking classes were fun and I loved Damien’s cheese sampling and lesson. After this, I am in love with French wine! The trip was a nice mix of interesting activities balanced with free time to explore and enjoy being in the Loire.” — Jean Traphagen, San Jose, CA

Yes, trip was very nice organized with a nice mix of scheduled events and downtime. Hotel was in a great location and the accommodations were stellar! Dinners were fabulous. It was nice not to have to plan dinner. Food was amazing! The castles were beautiful and unique. Christophe and Angelique were the best hosts. It was a real privilege to be in their home as guests.

A WORD FROM Our Guests:

“This was my third trip in the same number of years with Christy and Off the Beaten Path. While on her trips you can tell how much effort there is on the off season to make every single week perfect. From the pick up at the train station to the teary goodbye at the airport, everything is perfectly planned and executed. The hotel in St. Remy is magical, and the tour guides Philippe and David are exceptional. If you are considering a trip with OTBP, go for it and come home with new friends, a love of Provence and a longing to return as soon as you can!” — Beth Bower

“We had an excellent tour with Christie and her crew in the Loire valley. We did things that only a true insider would have access to-dinner at a Michelin chefs house, helping/learning to cook at a highly rated restaurant in their kitchen. This was in addition to seeing the sights and touring the castles. A truly unique experience that is off the beaten path. We will use her again when going back to France.” — Karen Berner

“France Off the Beaten Path was so great the first time that I had to return to Off The Beaten Path for a repeat visit. Everyone that works for Christy is excellent and full of life. Loved their tours to Van Gough, Dinner at Catherine’s home, picnic in the woods, wineries – And the only max at 16. So we really got to know each other. Highly recommend.” — Lauren

“Outstanding tour of truly beautiful areas of Provence by a very friendly and knowledgeable guide who spoke perfect English. Gorgeous accomodation, very special restaurant experiences, and an effort made to avoid arriving at tourist hotspots with the hordes made it all the more enjoyable.” — Geoff & Lorrene Evans
