As a seasoned luxury travel specialist, I have dedicated my career to curating unforgettable experiences in the mesmerizing country of France. With an unwavering passion for travel and an intimate knowledge of the country's most exquisite destinations, I strive to create tailor-made itineraries that exceed the expectations of the most discerning travelers.

With every trip I plan, I embark on a journey to showcase the very best of France, ensuring that my clients indulge in the opulence and charm that this remarkable country has to offer. From the historic landmarks of Paris to the sun-kissed beaches of the French Riviera, and from the rolling vineyards of Bordeaux to the snow-capped peaks of the French Alps, I orchestrate seamless travel experiences that leave a lasting impression.

Allow me to take you on a virtual tour of some of the must-see destinations that I highly recommend exploring in France:

1. Paris, the City of Lights: A captivating blend of art, history, and romance, Paris is a destination that never fails to enchant. Immerse yourself in the timeless beauty of the Eiffel Tower, stroll along the Champs-Élysées, and lose yourself in the world-renowned Louvre Museum, where masterpieces like the Mona Lisa await.

2. The French Riviera: Indulge in the glamour and sophistication of the French Riviera, where azure waters meet golden sands. Explore the glitzy city of Nice, unwind in the luxurious resorts of Saint-Tropez, and experience the vibrant nightlife of Cannes. Don't miss the opportunity to visit the charming village of Èze and witness the breathtaking views from its clifftop gardens.

3. Bordeaux Wine Region: Embark on a wine lover's paradise as you discover the prestigious vineyards of Bordeaux. Sample world-class wines, explore magnificent châteaux, and savor gourmet cuisine paired perfectly with each vintage. The wine enthusiasts among you will be captivated by the beauty and flavors that this region has to offer.

4. The French Alps: Escape to the picturesque landscapes of the French Alps, where snow-capped peaks and pristine valleys create a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. Enjoy thrilling ski adventures in renowned resorts like Chamonix, indulge in luxurious spa retreats, and take in the awe-inspiring beauty of Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in Western Europe.

5. Explore the historic beaches of Normandy.  Hear the stories of the brave servicemen who spearheaded the liberation of Europe. Tour the American Cemetary and Pont du Hoc, the cliff that the heroic Rangers took and silenced the long range guns. 

With my meticulous attention to detail and extensive network of luxury accommodations, private guides, and exclusive experiences, I ensure that every moment of your journey in France is extraordinary. Whether you desire a private helicopter tour over the Loire Valley or an intimate culinary experience in a Michelin-starred restaurant, I am dedicated to crafting a bespoke itinerary that caters to your every desire.

Together, we will create memories that will last a lifetime, as we uncover the treasures and secrets of this captivating country. Give me a call today so we can get started planning your vacation!

Saved my Ireland Trip!
Maureen at AMT really helped me plan my trip to Ireland for myself, husband and in Laws. I was crazy enough to insist that I would rather drive in Ireland than pay the high cost of a private chauffer. And when my father in law dropped the bomb that his drivers license expired, making him unable to drive the manual transmission van only 3 hours before we landed in Ireland, a quick email to Maureen saved the day. She canceled our van and rebooked two automatic cars (which is apparently rare in Ireland) so that my brother in law could drive one and I the other. By the time we landed at the airport, the cars were there, correctly booked, and the money for the van had already been refunded to my credit card. WOW. Then when the London air traffic control CANCELED our flights home for a full day, she helped us book a hotel for the night, and helped us file an insurance claim to cover the cost. Even for the most experienced traveler, she is an invaluable resource.

Dear Georgia, thank you for the kind words. Since that fateful trip you have used my services for travel planning instead of travel rescuing. We make a great team and I look forward to working with you in the future.

Leave your worries at home!
My wife and I have been working with Maureen now since 2015 when we started planning our first European vacation. After dealing with the frustration of trying to book it ourselves, we happened across an American Express travel website. The site was open to non-card members so we elected the country we wanted to visit and were given four agents to reach out to. We decided on Maureen and have never looked back. Maureen made the experience very easy for us since, at the time, we were both working full time. We were sent a short questionnaire which helped her to focus on what worked best for our time, destinations, budget, etc. Our trip was to travel the Northern coast of Spain in a car over a two week period. Maureen and her team handled all the details seamlessly, from the car, to the hotels, to the sites she recommended in each of the five cities we touched. We still talk about that trip! We recommend her to our friends and family constantly.

My New Favorite Place!
Maureen worked with our group of six to arrange THE BEST experience! She was able to accommodate all our collective needs while ensuring each individual was listened to. We explored the glorious Scottish Highlands from our home base in Inverness and ended in the majestic and magical city of Edinburgh. I don't think Maureen could have done any better in organizing this diverse experience.
