Few words about Sam

Hello !

My name is Sam.

I’m born and raised Parisian, 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 Montparnasse.

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 all began ...

In the nineties, when I first started, I worked exclusively for the most reputable hotels in Paris: I’ve had the pleasure of taking care of the guests in Paris airports for the prestigious 5-star Parisian palace hotels.

One day, an american guest asked me to go visit the Normandy region and learn about our shared History.

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 and I found out that he was a WW2 veteran.

I felt truly honored to have had him as my guest.

I shared with him that my grandfather was a war veteran as well, fighting with France along 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.

My american guest encouraged me to pursue this idea of learning about History and Monuments of France, to make my driver services in Paris, not just about driving but also polishing a mindful customer-oriented service and a comfortable moment while you are in France.

My guest 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!

Few years later

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 Serge. We share the same values of professionalism and enthusiasm to help our guests.

It’s been more than 20 years and I’m still loving what I do!

A peace of mind in Paris

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

An amazing gentleman! Spent 2 days with Sam as our driver. Could not have been more helpful, more knowledgeable and more accommodating. I could not recommend him more highly.

Ok so do not look any further for a driver in Paris- Sam is your best choice! My family was traveling in Paris during October 2022 and we needed both transports to and from the Eurostar train station to our hotel and again as a driver for our private tour of Paris we booked. We are a family of 5 with 5 large suitcases and everything fit into Sam's vehicle. We are also lucky enough to be well traveled and have had drivers in many countries. I can honestly say Sam was the best driver we have had so far anywhere in the world. First, he is beyond reliable, trustworthy and easy to deal with. Second, he is a very considerate and kind person. On our return there was a train strike and he would not leave us until we let him know we were on the train. He was already strategizing what other options he could help us with if our train was cancelled. After the day we spent together on our Paris tour, my family felt as if they had a friend in Paris. I even texted him and asked questions while we were in Paris which he did not hesitate to answer. He also took us to a place where the croissant was voted best in Paris. OMG we still talk about it. This is your guy if you need a driver.

Serge came and picked up my grandmother directly at her hotel. She thoroughly enjoyed all the stops including a café in Montmartre. She also really liked how comfortable the car was. I would recommend this service to anyone who speaks English or French and wants a personalized experience while visitng Paris!

We had a short layover and Sam and Joel helped us make the best of us. They picked up my wife and I and our 4 kids and made sure we can get in as much of Paris as our stopover allowed. They were great with us and our kids and would highly recommend them.

Serge was our driver for a private tour and drop off to airport. Clean car, extremely friendly and knowledgeable, even stopped at a local bakery (after I said I was a bit hungry), walked in with me and guided me through the best items to choose from and helped me communicate with the gentleman behind the counter at the bakery. Worth every penny - highly recommend.

If it was possible to give a higher rating, I would do so without hesitation. We’d just arrived in Paris for the first time ever when our driver, Serge, picked us up and instantly put us at ease. He had curated a driving tour to specifically meet our needs and we had an amazing couple of hours driving around with him. He taught us all the essential terms, showed us everything we wanted to see, and didn’t hesitate to answer any of our questions. Despite being jet-legged from the trip, he quickly had us laughing and having an amazing time. We actually ended up running into Serge again at the end of our trip and it was like running into an old friend. We will not hesitate to reach out to him again when we come back in the future!

Serge made our day in Paris as seamless as possible. We did not have to be concerned with getting around to key locations and given the fact our transport to Paris was almost 1 hour late this made so much difference. In combination with his colleague (tour guide) we really saw what made the highlights of Paris. Excellent value if time is tight. Philip, Sydney.

My wife and I had the pleasure of having both Serge and Sam as drivers for the duration of our stay in Paris. Both were phenomenal. From the moment Serge picked us up at CDG to the moment he dropped us off at the end of our trip we were treated with top notch concierge services. Serge and Sam were professional, on time, very helpful with recommendations and a pleasure to be with. They had our itinerary before we arrived and made sure that all logistics worked according to our travel plans. There were a couple of occasions where they took it upon themselves to follow-up with the attraction to make sure we had contingency plans in place. Throughout the trip they made us feel as if we where THE client and not just a client. The trip to Paris was for our 25th anniversary so we wanted it to be special. Mission accomplished! It was an overall wonderful trip in large part to the service we received from Serge and Sam. Thank you both.

I like 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
