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 !
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.
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.
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 listen to my clients needs. I am attentive to their expectations.
- I respect my clients privacy.
- I drive safely. I clean my cars daily -> It is the minimum for a comfortable ride.
- Sanitary Rules : I disinfect before and after each ride -> It is required by the Health Office.
- 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 !
