How To Experience France This Summer Like a Local

If you’ve ever wanted to go to France, or if you’ve already been, you probably dream of quaint villages, hot crepes, sipping espresso, exploring narrow streets and immersing yourself in history and folklore.

You dream of biting into fresh pastries, indulging in cheese and wine, trying to speak French and marveling at the Mont St Michel. You imagine walking in the footsteps of artists like Van Gogh and Monet, discovering relics from Roman times, seeing the Normandy beaches of D-Day and hearing the stories of courage, touring luxurious chateaus and making friends with locals.

These activities are part of the everyday life of the French and now there is a way to authentically experience it all as if you lived there, all while avoiding the crowds.

For the past 4 years local Arlington based tour company TripUSAFrance has been making those dreams come true for hundreds of travelers. Owner, French ExPat and main tour guide Julia Girard-Gervois followed her passion for French culture and tourism and started the business with the goal of enabling travelers to experience the best of France like she does.

She crafted two tour programs so far that each highlight the best of the regions they showcase. They are collecting rave reviews on TripAdvisor and Facebook. Tourists have said they love getting amazing regional food at handpicked restaurants, the small group dynamic (no more than 14 travelers per tour), getting to mingle with locals, amazing off-beaten path sites, fun activities and being treated like friends with the personal service and care that Julia and her father Stephane bestow on each person on the tour.

For an affordable price that includes everything but airfare, you can be whisked away on a trip that brings to life the France you’ve always imagined. Book your trip online at www.tripusafrance.com. Private tours also available by request.
