I partnered with the website Girls Guide to Paris a few years ago to design special Girlfriend Tours of the Marais, St. Germain, and rue St. Honoré.
Girls Guide to Paris recently started a Travel Club to help navigate readers trip planning to Paris. They have hand-picked 100 partners to offer their members some of the more offbeat and more interesting places and hotels moving beyond the usual Moulin Rouge show and Seine river cruises.
The Passport to Paris membership rewards website readers for only $95 per year, the choice of “Paris perks” which reads like a traveler’s wish list. Among the featured highlights are travel discounts beginning at 10% off, check-in privileges, room upgrades at select hotels, and a VIP welcome amenity. Ten do-it-yourself Girls Guide Walking Tours to Paris are available to help plan your day. Discounts on spas of 15%, members’-only savings on airport transfers, up to 60% off on tours and classes, and as much as $100 off luxury apartment rentals, plus special pricing at boutiques, restaurants and bars can be enjoyed throughout Paris. Total trip savings can equal $500 or more.
For those who want every detail taken care of, Le Club travel club status is available at $325 or $575 per year, depending upon how many days (three or seven) a full-service concierge may be needed in Paris. The Girls Guide concierge can help plan a trip in every detail, and is able to create some very special experiences not available to the average traveler, such as shutting down a store for an exclusive shopping experience or arranging helicopter service for private dinner at a chateau. The full-service concierge will work to make members feel pampered and 100% happy during their stay, and members will also receive all the benefits which Passport to Paris members receive. Even more important, Le Club members can experience VIP Parisian memories with invitations to exclusive fashion shows, previews at art galleries, film screenings, and private parties.
Additionally, Girls Guide to Paris is currently offering a special discount of $20 per Passport membership for those who follow Girls Guide on Facebook or Twitter, or who subscribe to their newsletter.
