Comments from Other Participants

We had a lovely time in Paris this fall and Ami wrote these kind comments:

Kathi, I received your card the other day and wanted to thank you and let you know how much I enjoyed the trip.  I loved Paris and had an amazing, memorable experience. It was all great! I really appreciated your encouragement to explore and the accurate directions you provided.  I felt very confident about getting around on my own despite the language barrier and was so glad that I could see so much in just a week.  The company was also wonderful and made me miss Canada all over again.  I plan to seek political asylum from your handsome new PM if Trump is elected president.
Thank you again and Go Blue Jays!

Hi Kathi,
Thank you for making this another memorable vacation. Lovely and interesting tours, and fabulous restaurants.   As always you handle everything with such charm and grace. Thank you for all the planning and preparation you put into these trips, so we can have a wonderful and memorable time.
Meryl (Welland)

The trip was lovely.  You choose the best places to take us to and gave us enough freedom to do our own exploring. I agree with the others that you were wonderfully patient and a cheerful presence at all times. I have unpacked my soaps and sachets, the chocolate for my husband and all the other little things that I have brought home. I have my many photos to bring back memories.

Hi, Kathi,
When I get your emails I realize what a true luxury my trip with you to Paris was.
I can see the Rue Clair and the patisserie windows and the hotel poodles(?) and the base of the Tour Eiffel and ride the boat under the bridges again and feel all that great energy.  So glad you are still making that opportunity available to others.  Maybe I can do it again one day.  Forever a Pariswoman......

Dear Kathi,
Many thanks for all your efforts & commitments in this Women’s Week. It will be one birthday I will never forget. The group of gals have been great as they remind me of some of my gal pals in Calgary. I will certainly look forward to any more of your trips.
With many thanks,
Judy (Calgary)

Thank you for your superb leadership, your flexibility and above all your kindness.

This is my second trip to Paris with Kathi Oliver. Again, I had a most enjoyable and memorable trip. Different activities and excursions this time, but all so enjoyable. Kathi's charming personality and excellent planning make every day an adventure. Wine tasting, museums, shopping excellent dining — what more could any woman want??

Dear Kathi,
The trip was absolutely what dreams are made of…you made it so. Your itinerary was thoughtful and excellent. It truly was an adventure……It was a pleasure to meet you and this lovely group of women.
Mary (Toronto)

Hi Kathi: Thanks for your e-mail. I am so looking forward to the Paris trip. You do such a super job at organizing — the helpful tips, a meet and greet at Le Select, the well-planned itinerary with built in flexibility and all the great dinners in lovely restaurants — just perfect. See you on the 8th.
Donna (Toronto)

Hi Kathi, Thank you for your thoughtful note that I received today. The pleasure was all mine on your special Paris sojourn. I loved every minute of it. Like you I am sure, I no longer even know just how many times that I have been to Paris. It was so much fun to be with a small group of women and have company for the evening dining. Your itinerary was exceptional. Everyone can find their own way to the Louvre, Musee d’Orsay, Notre Dame etc. but the small elegant museums that you took us to are not easily found on your own. Your restaurant choices were excellent. I enjoyed them all. I hope when the Ritz reopens that you will be able to include the cooking class again. That was so much fun and the dishes were not intimidating. I plan to make the recipes.

Thank you for your e-mail Kathi.  I also just received your delightful card in the mail. It brought back so many memories of Paris. I have told so many women of my trip, and they all say it sounds perfect. Hopefully, they will experience it also some day.  For my first trip to Paris I was very fortunate to meet such a group of knowledgeable, entertaining and just wonderful ladies. Every day brought new experiences and I smile when I think of all we did. The weather here has been wonderful, but you know sitting on the deck with a glass of wine, just isn't the same as sitting in a little cafe sipping Bordeaux and watching the world go by. How lovely it was. Thank you to all the Pariswomen for making my holiday so enjoyable.  Salut,
Meryl (Ontario)

Hi Kathi. I felt certain that I would enjoy being in Paris, what was an exceptionally wonderful bonus was the group of women that, thanks to you, I got to travel with. It was truly a great holiday. I loved it all — from the sites we saw, the places we visited, the food we ate and the laughs we shared. I waited a very long time to go to Paris, too long I often thought, but given the fact I may not have gone on your trip if I had visited earlier, then I must say, the wait was worth it. Thank you so much.
Sharon (Toronto)

Thanks Kathi. I had a wonderful time. Unfortunately, it went by way too fast. Once again, thank you for providing such a magical experience. As it pours rain here in London, I happily think back to those warm evenings when we strolled over to the Eiffel tower to watch the twinkling light show.
Maria (London)

Hi Kathi! Thank you so much for all your work organizing such a wonderful visit to Paris. You made everything seem so easy. I would be very interested in joining you again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend your trips to others. Please keep me updated. Again, thanks again for making our visit so lovely.
Lucynda (Kincardine)

Hello Kathi, Just wanted to send a short note saying thank you for everything you did for us. I enjoyed the trip very much & it certainly provided me with the flavour of Paris & the confidence & interest to return at a later date. Ciao for now.
Maria (Toronto)

Hi Kathi, I am still basking in the glow and joy of my trip with you to Paris in October. How I would love to go in May... such a superbly organized holiday. Everyone loved their Christmas gifts from Paris. It was so much fun for me to watch people open their gifts and then in my mind I could go right back to where I had purchased the item. I re-lived my Paris holiday many, many times as gifts were opened.
Linda (Niagara)

... a wonderful trip. The Etobicoke Three talk constantly about our super adventure and how wonderfully you treated us. It truly was Trip of a Lifetime.
Bonnie (Toronto)

What a marvellous holiday — thank you for all your efforts in putting the trip together, for your attention to detail and also for your very pleasant company! It is a great way to take a holiday and I would recommend the experience to anyone that wants to travel, but doesn't have the time or the inclination to do all the research that organizing such a trip would normally entail. You make it completely stress-free and a real "break" — I felt wonderfully refreshed by the whole experience.
Joyce (Toronto)

Thank you for a wonderful trip. It was the trip of a lifetime. Your itinerary was perfect - I felt safe and in good hands the whole time. As someone seeing Paris for the first time, I really felt that we had covered most of the interesting parts of the city.
Carole (Toronto)

I had such a wonderful "European Experience". I feel like a "Paris Woman" thanks to you. You were kind, organized, knowledgeable, so accommodating -just the perfect guide of such a beautiful city. I will remember you forever, your bright pink scarf on your shoulder, everything... everything — I loved it all!
Linda (Fenwick)

Oh, how I would love to join you in Paris again this year. I had such a wonderful time and have such marvellous memories of sights seen and friends made. One thing I hadn't realized might happen after having been in Paris, is that if I see any pictures or scenes of French streets or vistas I have such a longing to return to that romantic environment. I've attached a photo of that lovely lunch under the trees in Giverny. Wasn't it just a breathtaking experience!!?? Have a great visit in May and, who knows, maybe another year??
