Born and raised in Russia, I spent some time volunteering in Spain before moving on to France, where I’ve made Paris my home. I graduated with a Master’s degree and started working in the travel industry right after, mainly because I love traveling myself. I spent time in Auvergne-Rhone Alpes; on the Côte d'Azur; in Nord de France before settling in Paris and still try to venture out every time I can to explore new parts of the country. 

We established our tour operator to allow people to discover the real France: we invite you to explore our cities and landscapes the way only a local could. Think gourmet tours learning more about croissants, chocolate and pastry making, active tours exploring the countryside by bike or hiking, or cultural tours discovering living history. We pride ourselves to work with the best suppliers to provide high-quality guides, hotels, and transportation services. Traveling to a new country can be scary, particularly when you don’t speak the language, but we’re here to ensure you’ll make the most of your time in France.

Our tours are most suited to those looking for authentic, unique experiences in France.

Born and raised in New Zealand, I spent some time travelling all over the planet before moving to France 15 years ago, and I’ve made Lyon my home. I graduated with a Master’s degree as an Urbanist, but I have worked for over 7 years in the luxury travel industry. I think taking people out of their comfort zones is a part of my brief.

Our tour operator is based in France, and the UK, so we can work in both countries and allow folks to discover le vrai France and have an authentic British Isles experience. Our background has been creating walking holidays and sharing the joy of eating half-board meals at mountain huts, or chic guesthouses!

I must say, the drivers and tour guides, were good. Two stood out, Mark, who picked us up on 9/5 for dinner at the Eiffel tower and then the Crazy horse, was great. Our driver from Amboise, Xavier, was outstanding. He also took us on the tour of villages along the Normandy coast (Deauville/ Hon Fleur) and then back to Paris via Monet’s home. I’d appreciate it if you would pass on our compliments to his company.the trip was seamless. Every driver was on time, the tours were good, and the hotels were great. We had a wonderful time and made many wonderful memories.

My niece and I attended this terrific workshop. We learned a lot and had tons of fun. The bread and pastries were amazing. It was great to get behind the scenes of a real French bakery. Chef Didier was wonderful!"

We had customized a small trip for us in France. We started out in Paris and then moved to Normandy and Loire Valley. Since the beginning of my interaction I found RG team very prompt and capable in customizing the trip as per my requirements. In India not many people I know take these trips so I just banked on my instincts and glad that I did. I thank you for a memorable trip and will definitely recommend them to my friends.

Our guide, David, was excellent and exceeded my expectations. Friendly, well-informed and gracious. A real Parisian point of view on the specialties of each place we visited. Highly recommended tour and very highly recommended if you are lucky enough to get David as your guide.

"Wonderful tour. Our guide was good and gave us lots of information. The experience itself is something you cannot do on your own. I highly recommend it for families. The place was very busy but the people that work there were welcoming. You cannot get this experience in many places."
