Dear Shahin

I wanted to take a minute to say thank you for our experience with Paris Luxury Tours.

I enjoyed the Classic Paris Luxury Tour of Champagne on Friday, October 12th with 3 other women from the United States. We were celebrating a birthday! Shahin arrived right on time at our hotel in Paris. The van was immaculate. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable of the champagne region of France and provided an informative and interesting ride to the vineyards. He had a superior “back up plan” when we had to make a last-minute change, and he was accommodating and gracious when the whims of 4 women changed! It was a delightful day, and a perfect way to see the countryside of France.

I Would recommend this trip highly to all my friends!

Shahin was a fantastic tour guide [Classic Paris Luxury Tour of Champagne]. He was prompt, yet patient; we had four girls all trying to be on time!

His English is perfect and his voice is easy to listen to…he is extremely knowledgeable about everything. We chatted about wines, Champagne and French history while on the way to the Champagne country.

We enjoyed the extra surprise tour of Dom Perignon with you as well–thank you for all the translating!
I will take another tour with Shahin next time I am in France. He responded quickly via email and/or phone and answered all of my questions prior to booking the tour. I would recommend him to anyone!

Thank you so much!

Thank you very much for the day we spent with you touring Versailles [full day tour of Chateau, Gardens and Park of Versailles plus the Domain of Marie Antoinette]. It was superior in every way.

Your suggestions of the itinerary, starting with the Palais-Royal in Paris and ending at Marie Antoinette’s estate, were magnificent. We were taken by your intimate knowledge of the sites and the roles they and their occupants played in the history of France and Europe. Your presentation was incredibly informative and interesting without ever becoming pedantic. Your pacing is perfect (a skill for an all-day tour) and you also have a terrific sense of humor.

Finally, we appreciated very much the lunch with you at the Brasserie du Theatre in Versailles. The food was delicious (an understatement) and the conversation with you was a very enjoyable and appreciated bonus.

We look forward to seeing you again.

Thank you for the wonderful tours of Paris.* Your expertise, passion, guidance and patience made for an exciting journey through the city. Thank you again for sharing your beautiful city with us. Warmly,

I just want to thank you for the wonderful time we had the last 3 days with you [3-day Alsace wine tour]. Your attention to detail and passion for the region was very much appreciated. I learned a lot as a winemaker from the last few days. I loved all the places you chose and hope to one day meet up again and see a different region. I wish you happiness and health.

Until next time,

Paris Luxury Tours and Shahin Akhavi take the extra steps needed to provide their customer with a tour experience that is superior to any others. I found Shahin by researching the web for tours of the Loire Valley, France. We had quite a comprehensive and varied trip planned with several people, to include multiple sites and experiences. After some email communications between Shahin and myself, he took the ball and created a fabulous trip.

We needed everything from transportation, hotels, lunch and dinner reservations, Wine Tours, Chateau and Architectural interest tours, and Champagne Region tours. Paris Luxury Tours can do it all and more.

Shahin’s knowledge and expertise within our interests are incredibly deep and interesting. He was flexible and able to move and add experiences when requested, all this and happy to do it.

My husband and I enjoyed a full week with Shahin, we tapped into his knowledge and learned about France and the French culture in a relaxed, comfortable and fun environment.

We would highly recommend Paris Luxury Tours if you’re heading to France. Shahin is able to offer a wide range of ideas and expert knowledge with 5 Star Service.

Merci beaucoup, Shahin

We have arrived back in the states and one of our fondest memories of our France trip was our Champagne tour [Classic Paris Luxury Tour of Champagne].

The service at the restaurant,* while not great, could not cast a shadow on how much we enjoyed the rest of the day. The champagne houses were wonderful and a great source of learning, they were good choices.

But really Darius was the best part, he is so informed and was able to answer so many questions while showing us beautiful towns, villages and country side. We very much appreciated a guide with so much local knowledge, and he’s very personable. Henry loved that Darius laughed at his jokes.

We would easily recommend your company to others and would also use it again ourselves.

Thank you,

My wife and I selected the Super Luxury Champagne Tour which was an excellent full day experience of the Champagne region, about 7 am to 8 PM. We were picked up at our hotel in Paris by Shahin in a luxurious S Class Mercedes. Shahin was a very knowledgeable guide and was happy to share his broad knowledge of wine and champagne production, history and the local champagne region. Shahin was a pleasure to spend the day with.

My wife and I selected the Super Luxury Champagne tour to include lunch at the [Michelin] 3-star L’Assiette Champenoise near Reims, which was incredible. I highly recommend planning for some extra time at this restaurant as the tasting menu can take more than a couple hours to fully enjoy the experience and dishes.

We ended up visiting several different wine producers throughout the day, some of which my wife and I chose [Dom Perignon] and some recommended by Shahin [Henri Giraud and Gaston Chiquet]. Getting to experience some smaller producers that my wife and I had not yet been familiar with was a true pleasure. We now have a couple favorite new wines from our trip! I would highly recommend this tour for those that prefer a more private, personal and luxurious experience instead of the larger groups, crowds and lines.

This was a trip that my wife and I will remember for the rest of our lives.

My wife and two adult daughters accompanied me to Paris for a work conference so our plans to properly tour the city was ambitious at best.

To make the most of our limited time, I searched for personalized tours and five companies responded. Four asked How Much Do I Want To Spend? Then there was Shahin Akhavi of Paris Luxury Tours who merely queried what and how I wanted to see Paris. He’s the president of this small-but-established company. Fast forward, he put together two balanced, interesting and diverse days driving and walking through Paris and surrounding areas. I was not inserted into a prearranged package; Shahin created one exactly as I spelled out to him.

Shahin led one tour day and his son Darius the other. They were well-versed in the history, architecture, political, and pop relevance of many sights. They even arranged for airport transportation and helped pick out great restaurants. It is in short like having good friends entertain you in the town they love and knew well.

Thank you for a wonderful and educational experience of Paris I did not know in past visits and would not have known by myself.

I’ve been to Paris several times before, so, on my most recent trip, I was looking for something ‘special’ to do. I came across the Marie Antoinette Tour through Paris Luxury Tours [https://www.parisluxurytours.com/marie-antoinette-tours/], and we absolutely loved it! It was thorough and covered many interesting places related to Marie Antoinette. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable on the subject and made the history and story come alive. We covered all of the essentials such as the place of her execution and imprisonment, the Petit Trianon and her Norman village, etc., but also covered lesser known places, including, my very favorite, visiting a chocolatier associated with Marie Antoinette. It was a wonderful tour and I will look for another tour through Paris Luxury Tours the next time I’m in Paris.
