PARIS, FRANCE, September 10 – 13, 2015 – We boarded our private jet one final time to fly to Paris, where we once again enjoyed a gourmet lunch on board. All of our flights have been so enjoyable with our spacious jet cabin, comfortable seats, great camaraderie and attentive service by our exquisite crew.
We settled into our deluxe rooms at the wonderful Four Seasons George V and enjoyed the beautiful floral arrangements in the lobby as we assembled to go out into Paris for our first night. We set out through the city to our dinner onboard a lovely yacht on the Seine enjoying the wonderful views of the city. There is no better way to discover the City of Lights than from its very heart, the River Seine. The Eiffel Tower was as spectacular as anyone could imagine on the clear magical night.
The next day we started our exploration of Paris from the upper deck of our private double decker bus, giving us a great vantage point for viewing the notable architecture of the city including the Arc de Triomphe and Notre Dame. After a fabulous lunch at Pompidou Center – Georges Restaurant offering spectacular views of the city, we continued touring the city in our separate chauffeur-driven Citroen CV2 cars. Our friendly chauffeur-guides took each car to the hidden parts of Paris divulging fascinating bits of history, each one customizing the experience per our interests with photo stops along the way as we desired.
We visited the iconic Louvre Museum, learning all the secrets and highlights before heading out for our own shopping, exploring the city further or simply relaxing at a café. What better way to celebrate the ending of our journey throughout Europe, than to have our farewell dinner party at the enchanting restaurant, Jules Verne, on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower. This rare experience guided us through 5 courses of culinary discovery with the sommelier selecting perfect food-wine pairings from their exclusively French selection. The restaurant’s incomparable view of Paris provided a great setting for us to reminisce about the wonderful sights and cultural encounters we’ve enjoyed the past two weeks as we “Rediscovered Europe” via a magic carpet ride in the sky – our luxury Private Jet.
