Curated
Recommendations
I love curating recommendations based on exactly what you want out of your Paris trip! ✅ Types of recommendations I can help with: Classic sites, coffee shops (laptop-free and laptop-friendly), restaurants (French and otherwise), wine bars, cocktail bars, speakeasies, museums, parks, activities, guided tours, day trips, and more. ⚠️ Types of recommendations I have limited knowledge of: Nightlife & clubbing, high-end shopping, Instagram photo spots, 🎯 Please be as specific as possible - especially for the Standard 10 Recs package - when describing what kinds of curated recommendations you want. For example, for an order of 10 recs, you can say "I want 2 French restaurants, 3 coffee shops (including 1 that's laptop-friendly), 2 museums that don't include the Louvre, 1 day trip, and 2 parks," or "I want 4 laptop-friendly cafes, 3 off the beaten path experiences, and 3 classic sites." For Premium and Luxe packages, you can say more generally what 'mix' or recs you prefer and I will do my best to provide a good balance.

ABOUT
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.
