When my husband and I planned a trip to Europe with a week’s stay in Paris, I chose Robyn to organize ours since I loved the fact she lives in Paris every summer. Robyn gave me not only the must-dos but also tips on how to use the transit system, off the beaten path streets that are still very authentically Parisian and not touristy and she also gave me her valuable insight into what each arrondissement has to offer.Paula Barrera
Robyn was instrumental in crafting our 25th anniversary trip to Paris. It was wonderful and so reassuring to have someone we trust vehemently plan out our excursion and make sure we had nothing but the best at our fingertips, and create a trip of a lifetime, which my husband and our 10 year old son Jack enjoyed tremendously! And we had Robyn come to be with us on this trip as we wanted to fully relax and let someone else do all the legwork. It was worth every euro!
Our journey started by landing at Charles de Gaulle Airport where my family and I were picked up by our very friendly and competent driver, who drove us to our lux 1200 sq. ft. apartment that Robyn connected us with, who also furnished the driver. Our fabulous dwelling for the week was in the heart of the Left Bank of Paris, across from Notre Dame, where we were lucky enough to listen to the tolling of the bells each day. Once we arrived at our apartment, Robyn greeted us with a smorgasbord lunch of fine wine, meats, cheeses and breads, of course indicative of France. What way to wet our appetite for the rest of our trip that lay ahead.
The next day we went on a terrific walking tour with our guide, who Robyn introduced us to, who happened to be from Philadelphia but has lived in Paris for over 20 years. We toured all around our neighborhood, the neighboring churches and Cathedrals (including Notre Dame), stopped for lunch at a cute Paris café, and then carried on all the way to the Eiffel Tower where we stopped to admire the view from the ground up. Along the way we strolled by some of the famous fashion and shopping boutiques along Blvd. St.-Germaine, and on the way back stopped in Montmartre and ended our day at another café after visiting Sacre Coeur Basilica.
On the second full day of our trip my family and I toured the Eiffel Tower, and went up to the 2nd platform-high enough for us! In addition on our way up, we got behind the scenes look at the inner workings of the tower. When we arrived back down on the ground, we met up with Robyn, and again she greeted us with a full array of delicacies and we picnicked under the Tower! We truly were living the Parisian experience! At the end of the day we met up with Robyn and toured along the Seine (a boat tour called “City Lights” tour that she suggested), which was a great highlight to the end of the day!
On the third day we toured Arc de Triomphe, the Palais Royal the famous Opera House and the area surrounding. The day would not have been complete without stopping at the Angelina Café and visiting the Luxemburg Gardens. And while these are typical tourist sites, Robyn showed them to us in more unique and special way that most tourists would never experience by themselves.
On the fourth day, we had a full day of touring in quaint Reims in the Champagne country, all arranged by Robyn, with a chauffeur, who was quite entertaining, particularly with our son, who was with us. We first stopped at a little theatre with a puppet show, putting a kid’s spin on the art of making Champagne, and the history. We then stopped in a small Champagne house to start, then stopped in a café for lunch, and then left to visit one of my favorite Champagne’s house, Veuve Cliquot! What a thrill, and unique experience. Even our 10 year old son got a kick out of going in to the caves (where they provide you velvet blankets to keep you warm!). At the end of the tour we were greeted with a complimentary glass of champagne.
The most unique part of the trip came at the end of that day, where on the way back the driver stopped in what he called a “forest” to have a glass of champagne. Well it turned out that it was a zip lining park, right up our son’s alley and what a surprise! While he took over and made sure Jack had a safe and fun experience, we took a foot bridge over to a tall tree house where we sipped as much champagne that we could handle, listened to some great music, all while overlooking the beautiful vineyards. A wow factor of 10+!
On the fifth day Robyn arranged for a personalized tour of the Musee d’Orsay where I got to see my favorite impressionists up close and personal. We then met Robyn for lunch in Upper Marais and then toured the Marches de Enfants Rouge. We then finished our day with a lovely anniversary dinner at Grand Coeur.
On our sixth and last full day (sadly) we split up a bit, my husband and son went to Napoleon’s War Museum and Robyn and I spent our last day together having lunch on the roof top café at Galleries Lafayette and shopping at the trendy stores within. We convened back together that evening, and finished our trip with dinner right next to our apartment.
This trip I don’t think would have been nearly has memorable had it not been for Robyn’s attention to detail, passion about Paris, pride she took in making sure we were happy. I would without a doubt recommend Robyn to anyone looking to plan the trip of a lifetime to Paris.Jen and Jay Zanone
Our bucket list trip to Paris would not have been half as enjoyable without the help, advice and guidance of Robyn Webb.
From restaurant selection to the “best times” to visit the museums and attractions, Robyn crafted a full Paris expert that we wouldn’t have been able to piece together on our own.
She also set up a fabulous personalized tour of the city, complete with an amazingly knowledgeable tour guide that included all of our must-see sites.
I’d highly recommend Robyn to anyone who is planning a Paris vacation, regardless of budget, duration of the trip or time of year. We had the time of our lives and it was all so effortless. We didn’t need a vacation from our vacation.Janine and Jeff Newman
But once I told her where I was staying ( I selected my hotel, but without a doubt, let her select your accommodations- I might try one of her fab apartments she has access to)she was able to put together a very detailed plan. The relaxed and flexible itinerary she provided started from my hotel and fanned out from there. She broke it down by day.
Recommended which sites would be best to see each day based on my hotel as the starting point each morning. Her goal was to make sure I could see everything I wanted to see in the best possible order. She gave me both walking directions and Paris Metro directions. I was pleasantly surprised at the extreme amount detail provided. In addition to putting together a daily agenda for me Robyn provided me a very detailed list of restaurants she recommended for either lunch or dinner.
She was able to recommend a place in every single arrondissement. Again, Robyn surprised me with the level of detail she provided. Robyn is truly an expert at what to see in Paris and the best ways to see it all. There is no way I could have done this on my own and have the time of my life! I can’t wait to go back!

Robyn even built in time every day to just relax at a cafe or back at the apartment with a bottle of wine. Whether it’s your first trip to Paris or your fourth, Robyn will help you have an unforgettable and unique Parisian experience. Amy and Andy Brown
