4. Who is the founder or owner of the company and briefly describe his/her past activities?
I am Laurence Monclard, founder of the company. I grew up in the camping site of my parents on the French Riviera. It was a lot of fun beeing with many other children and make new friends. It was the experience of all generations: relationships were nice and easy, often lead to long-lasting friendships and included people from various countries. When I arrived in Paris, urban tourism was not offering the same experience: Parisians and tourists did no live in the same world! I studied in the US and I started a career in large companies. After having learnt about sales, marketing and project management, I wanted to create my own company and develop new tourist services based on multicultural encounters.
5. What is your most popular travel package and why?
Food is a good theme for us, well in our French culture and a basis for share and friendship. Our Pastry and chocolate tour, and our Bakery tour are the most popular.
6. What is the best compliment you received from a client?
We are happy when the clients say it was the highlight of their trip.
