About Sam, the driver :

I am Sam, I am 42, born and bred in Paris, eating croissants and baguettes.

I live in a lovely and quiet historical quarter in Paris called Montparnass with my family.

My children go to school in Paris center.

I enjoy driving and being helpful. That's why I decided to build a career as a professional private driver for prestigious hotels (Bristol and Ritz) in Paris, in the late 90s.

I learned to be a professional chauffeur with high quality of service. 

I have more than 20 years of experience as a driver and as a small business owner, and I still love it !

My story

When I was young , I started by working mainly for the Ritz Hotel, Le Bristol and some of the most prestigious Parisian Palaces and 5-stars Hotels in Paris.

One day, a client asked me if we can go see the Normandy Landing Beaches. On our trip to Normandy American Cemetery, we were talking and getting to know each other better.

It turns out he was a WW2 American Veteran. I was honored to have him as a client.

“My father is a french veteran, he fought in WW2 too, french side”, I told.

As I am the son of a french soldier who was honored and decorated by the french army for his courage. He fought side by side with the American Soldiers on the Normandy Omaha Beach to liberate France. My father told me many stories about WW2 in France.

My client encouraged me to pursue a career as an independent driver and start working on new tours to show my American clients how beautiful France is. So I started trying young.

I was giving my visitors tours and rides to Normandy, to Giverny and other secret, magical and beautiful places in France where my clients can relax, breathe some fresh air, get inspired, get great food, and discover the hidden gems of our country side.

Paris beauty

Serenity

I understand that my visitors sometimes come from a long-haul flight and need to rest quietly, peacefully : they need a serene ride to the hotel. In my car, you will find some snacks, chocolate, water, phone chargers and many more on my driver services.

My vision

I promised myself to do my job attentively, respectfully and very carefully to satisfy the needs of my visitors and preserve their safety while they are discovering my city on their own pace.

  • I am Polite, Modest and Obedient.
  • I am Friendly and very open-minded.
  • I am knowledgeable. I can orient you to good spots, restaurants, museums, and people to meet.

Covid safety rules 

We must Disinfect and clean the cars everyday, before and after each ride

In 2021, we must also separate the driver from the clients with a plastic transparent divider which I installed during the first lock down.

I also use disinfectant gel and wear a mask all the time to protect you and myself.

I will give you masks when you come to Paris.

During this crisis, it is very important for me to be courteous and patient to make things easier for you when you come to Paris.

My favorite spots

I always invite my clients to go to Giverny and to Normandy to see the french countryside.

Giverny is by far my best destination. It is a magical place, only one hour away from Paris.

No wander it was the home of the famous artist Claude Monet !!

With a passion for gardening as well as for colors, he conceived both his flower garden and water garden as true works of art.

Walking through his house and gardens, visitors can still feel the atmosphere which reigned at the home of the Master of Impressionism and marvel at the floral compositions and nymphéas, his greatest sources of inspiration.

We can go there with a tour guide !

The people in the countryside are nice and generous. Life is slow, we can take time to reflect and breathe.

The french have different cuisines. The food is authentic in the country side, we can eat healthy and delicious meals !

We were referred to Sam during the strikes in Paris for airport transfer because the original company didn’t have a... vehicle for our party’s luggage. What a lucky accident! Sam was accommodating and made our transfer super easy and comfortable even in the crazy traffic generated by the strike. We were so pleased we hired him for a day trip to the Loire valley with equally good results. At every point, he made our experience a priority while being flexible with our pace. Hire with confidence!read more

Sam was fantastic! Our family of 5 enjoyed his roomy and clean car and the waters and candy were very appreciated. ... Sam is an excellent driver and took care to be extra careful due to one member of our family not feeling very well. He drove us on 2 separate occasions and was always on time. We especially appreciated when he walked us into the airport to show us where to go for our flight. I would highly recommend using Sam’s services! He was great!read more

I love what Ernest Hemingway said about Paris

“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast

See you soon in Paris !

Best regards,

Sam
