to plan your trip
You're coming to Paris! Or France! Either way, you can't wait to make the most of your trip. But, maybe you're feeling short on time, don't love researching and planning, or just want the expertise and assistance of a bilingual American who lives in Paris. That's where I come in 😊 I offer custom itinerary planning that will relieve you of the nuts and bolts of your trip while allowing me to do something I genuinely love: sharing Paris and France with others. If you're interested in my Custom Itinerary service, I strongly suggest first booking a Consultation Call. This allows us to get to know one another, and help you determine if I'm the best fit to help with your trip. ✅What I do BEFORE your trip 1. Provide your itinerary DURING your trip (ADD-ONS, for additional cost) 1. Restaurant Reservations (add-ons for Standard & Premium packages; included in Luxe package) 2. WhatsApp Support: literally a friend in your pocket during your trip for last-minute questions, research, or advice. 3. Carbon Offsetting through Sustainable Travel International AFTER your trip 1. Send a post-trip survey to collect feedback about what you loved and what could have been better. 2. Request a Thatch review. ❌What I don't do 1. Book your flights or guided tours (I'll give you suggestions, though!). 2. Pick you up from the airport. 3. Escort you around Paris.

Hilary Matson | @hilaryinparis
Hello et bonjour ! I'm (another) American in Paris. I've lived in France since 2016 and I loooove sharing my Paris & France recs in hopes I can help others love this city and country as much as I do. I'm quite confident I've seen more of France than most French people, so no matter what you're looking for, I've (probably) done it! ✅ What I'm a great fit for: Mature travelers, couples, solo travelers, and families who enjoy soaking in authentic experiences, great food and wine, off-the-beaten-track gems, classic sites, and sustainable travel. 🌱 What's sustainable travel about? Traveling in a way that is kind to the environment, respectful of local culture, & supportive of the local economy. My trip-planning services are always through a sustainable lens. ❌ What I'm not a great fit for: Travelers focused on bars/clubbing or high-end shopping. ➡️ Follow me on TikTok, Instagram & Pinterest @hilaryinparis for Paris & France recommendations, tips, personal stories, and more. 🌍 PS: I'm on Thatch because I genuinely love sharing France with folks. My day job is running Yugen Earthside, a booking platform for responsible package trips primarily catering to groups of mature American travelers. My company's website is linked below.
