About me

Hello! My name is Sam.

I’m Parisian and I love baguettes and croissants - like all Parisians do!

My family and I live in a quiet little corner of a beautiful historic quarter of Paris called Montparnass.

I enjoy driving and being helpful.  But more than that, I love meeting new people. It is no wonder that I became a professional private chauffeur!

HOW IT BEGAN ...

In the nineties, when I first started, I worked for some of the most reputable hotels in Paris.  I’ve had the pleasure of taking care of guests from Le Bristol, Hotel Ritz, and some of the most prestigious 5-star Parisian palace hotels in Paris.

One day, a guest asked to visit Normandy.  He wanted to see the historical sites of D-Day and the Battle of Normandy.  During the trip, we had some great conversations while getting to know each other. I found out that he was a WW2 veteran.

I was truly honoured to have had him as my guest.

I told him  that my grandfather was a war veteran as well, fighting with the allies. He fought side by side with the American soldiers and was injured in Normandy. He recounted many stories from that time. As his grandson, I was proud when he was decorated for his service to France.

He encouraged me to pursue my dreams, to be an independent chauffeur. I was young and still had so much to learn, but he was so motivating and inspiring. This chance encounter gave me the courage to venture out on my own. I started my own company with the enthusiasm and passion that I had for my job, and I never looked back!

I started giving my guests private rides and tours to Champagne, Giverny, Chateau de Versailles, amongst others. I am proud to showcase my beautiful country to my guests. There are so many beautiful towns and historic cities.  My guests can look forward to be inspired, charmed, and fall in love with their encounters; to satisfy their gastronomic desires with celebrated French fare; and to take in all that this region has to offer.

I’ve been so lucky to have met some adventurous, wonderful people along the way.  Today, I run a team of drivers, with the same professionalism and enthusiasm my guests have come to expect from me in the past. It’s been more than 20 years and I’m still loving what I do!

Peace Of Mind

When my guests arrive into Paris after a long flight, I understand their need to restore their well being. We ensure a peaceful, quiet ride to their hotel, alongside all the little amenities that they might want or need - snacks, beverages, and phone charges are just some of the little offerings that they can expect from us.

I take pride in what I do and I make it our mission to give all the care and attention that our guests require during their time with us. Your safety and well-being is of the utmost importance, and you can be assured that you will be well taken care of during your stay.

Let us know if you have any special requirements. No request is too big or too small. Your privacy is our priority.

My chauffeurs are highly trained, professional drivers. Drop me a line if you need any information with regards to the services that we offer, or the attractions and destinations that you have in mind.

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 love being helpful and offer my guests the best souvenirs in Paris

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

“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 !
