Customer Comment:
""Bonjour Murielle,

Now that our luggage is put away, the numerous photos are downloaded, and family and friends have stopped asking us about our incredible trip to France, we didn’t want to let more time go by without letting you know how EXTREMELY grateful we are to you for putting together such an amazing vacation. We cannot stop talking about how wonderful our France vacation was. And we couldn't have had such a magical experience had it not been for you. THANK YOU -- MERCI -- THANK YOU!!!

Everything was remarkable! The hotels you selected (their locations could not have been any better); our tours were remarkable; restaurant and site recommendations phenomenal; our transportation great (we enjoyed having our car with reliable GPS...it allowed us to wander and explore the magnificent countryside and vineyards)... all TOP NOTCH and FANTASTIC! We appreciated that all our transfers and tours were pre-arranged and prepared, so all we had to do was to "show up". We loved all your recommendations and we were never at a loss for daily activities. All we can say is that the trip would not have been as remarkable had you not assisted putting it together for us. We are still walking on clouds as this was one of the most wonderful trips we have taken. Everything; I mean everything was perfect!!!

>From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for arranging such an amazing trip for us. We look forward to having you assist us with our next traveling “adventures."

Your biggest fans,
Rick & Lulu Carbon

The Italian Lake district to Chamonix to Anncey that you helped guide me to was the trip highlight, as was the time in Beaune riding bikes in vineyards while my daughter was on the Mediterranean coast. Your suggestion that she take the train and meet us in Dijon rather than us driving back south to pick her up was a good one.
Thanks for your help on planning parts of this trip. Since I met you we have spent nearly four months traveling in Europe and it all worked better because of you.
Thanks again.
-Del Draper

Dear Murielle,
You are the absolute best. We would be totally and literally lost without you. Thanks for everything!!!
-John Milliken

Thank you so much.

Hello Murielle,
We just returned from our cruise last night. Well, you did it again! Everything you touched (planned for us) in our behalf was amazing. You even planned perfect weather. The gift in our room from you and the Black Pearl Luxury Services was greatly appreciated. I told you that you were a princess. I have now been to Europe for three weeks and I know what a princess is and yes, you still qualify.
Sonja and I just wanted to say THANK YOU for making our vacation so special. You have done yourself proud!
-Glen and Sonja

I wanted to thank you for all of your efforts. We truly appreciated all of the tours that you arranged for us. They were amazing!
We will use you again and recommend you highly.
Please if you ever need a reference let me know.
-Kristina Schmidt

Hi Murielle,
I have to tell you that you have done a fabulous job for us!!! The icing on the cake is Hotel Minerva , what an amazing treasure!! They have a garage right under the hotel and they tend our car for us! We had cocktails and dinner here and the experience is phenomenal!

Highly recommend it!!! Our room is superb and staff exceptional! Thank you so much!!!
-Lori Bresnahan

Dear Murielle,
We arrived home yesterday afternoon after a wonderful and memorable trip.  We profusely thank you for the excellent advice and assistance that you provided us.
With regard to the French portion of the trip, all aspects were outstanding!  Le Relais du Louvre was very well located, comfortable, friendly and very French, just as we had hoped.  We patronized two of the recommended restaurants twice each; the food and service were excellent, and they were within walking distance and moderately priced.
The Renaissance barge on the Briare Canal even surpassed our high hopes.  Accomodations were spacious and comfortable; the crew members were friendly and very attentive; the scenery was lovely; and the daily expeditions to the various sites were all interesting and unique experiences.Thank you again for your thoughtful and thorough service, and send our best wishes!
- Enid and Rick Grauer"
