Here is what Bill, Gail, Tom and Lil would like to share with you about what they consider the most valuable about Audrey’s service:

  1. Because we only speak English, your fluency in five languages is invaluable.
  2. The transportation that you personally provide or arrange is extremely valuable. It gets us to our destinations and allows us more time to see important things.
  3. The hotels, chateaus, etc. that you book are all very nice and close to the sights we want to see.
  4. The special city guides you arrange for us are always exceptional. They speak good English, know the history and get us in the front of the lines. You and the guides always take us to neat ‘off-the-path’ places.
  5. Your flexibility is valuable. We can say ‘no, we don’t want to see a…’ or ‘why don’t we do this…..first tomorrow’ and you respond.
  6. The restaurants you guide us to are incredible. They are not full of tourists. Even in Bayeux-buckwheat crepes!
  7. You are a history buff and are always telling us lots of history about what we are about to see. It makes it real special.

About Audrey De Monte

Born in New York City, to European native parents, and raised in Western Africa, I have studied, lived and worked on three continents (Africa, Europe and North America), and have traveled extensively throughout the world. Travel has shaped my life, who I am, and how I look at the world and travel continues to be my biggest teacher. Together with my native Italian husband, we speak 5 languages (French, Italian, German, Spanish and English of course). I have spent a lifetime in several countries in Western Europe, since early childhood, visiting family, friends, studying, living and working. I grew up with the local customs and traditions of these countries.
