"Bon anniversaire" to the team !

Maria Ruiz

Richard, happy 3rd anniversary. Keep em coming. You are right, I live vicariously through you. I also hope to meet you at some point in the near future. Greetings from sunny Miami!!!

I lived in Paris for three years, I am married to a Frenchman from Normandy and you have reminded me daily of how much I miss Paris. You have shown me things that I never saw despite walking 4 hours or more every day I lived in that most glorious city; but then one could live in Paris all of ones life and never "see it all". I live now in North and South Carolina; both glorious places, in the mountains and at the sea but it is our great desire to once again have a home in Paris. You do a lovely job and I look forward to your blog. Happy anniversary.


Bon Anniversaire!

I first discovered your blog when I was here last summer and have been a faithful subscriber ever since.

Congratulations RICHARD on following your bliss: wresting yourself away from New York, plunging into new careerS, and flourishing financially.

I am a New Yorker with a passion for Paris. When I'm back there, I avidly read your emails and wish I could be in both places tout de suite.

Happy Anniversary, Richard and Eye Prefer Paris! Your blog keeps my dreams of Paris alive while I am forever waiting on the recruitment decision from the UN!


Happy Anniversay, well done. I have never been to Paris,but have you in my favourites, so know where to look if we ever go there.


we are so glad that you write your blog - AND that you do your tours - life wouldn't be the same without you! congrats, and all best wishes, xxo


You are living the dream of so many of us - merci mille fois pour tous ce que vous faites pour nous!

Congratulations Richard,
You should be very proud of all your endeavors. Your Eye Perfer Paris business is one of the best finds in Paris. Continued success. Hopefully I can get over there again sometime soon. My post retirement plans have been re-organized due to the weak US dollar. This is not, however,going to stop me but is definitely slowing me down. Again, Mazol Tov. Love, KC

Norm Kondzielski

Congratulations Richard! Many more years of exploring enjoying and sharing your paris with all of us. See you in September!

you're 3!!! bonne anniversaire. i've been reading and enjoying all the photos. i never delete without looking at what you've sent. if there's too much going on, i'll save for when i have time. ever since i was a little girl i loved New York City and i loved Paris. you're letting me learn all about the City of LIghts. so much to know, so much to see. i'm jealous of 'your' Polly and all the adventures you two have. good thoughts, congratulations, much love. bisous


Bonjour Richard!

I just had to write to tell you how much I enjoyed your past favorites, especially the one about Rogny. I had a friend (started out as a client) years ago who decided to retire to his péniche. He and his friend bought one in the Netherlands and had it reburbished. They spent about 4-5 months of the year cruising along the canals. When he asked when I'd like to come, I jumped at the chance. My husband and I joined them on the Canal du Nivernais for about 5 days. We loved it so much that we rented one of our own a couple of years later and went back with our daughters to cruise the Canal du Midi. We met people from all over the world (this is not an American thing to do apparently, but the rest of the universe has caught on!). I bought a map of the canal ahead of time so I could plan our route. We tried to stop at a place each night where the market day was the next day. We never planned to cook, but the food at the markets was so enticing, we couldn't resist (in our 2' by 2' kitchen). We didn't stop at any place I had ever heard of (except for Carcassonne) but we had a lifetime of adventures--it all comes down to the people, after all, doesn't it? As much as we love the architecture, the history, the language--what we remember most is those with whom we've crossed paths. That's why. of all our trips to France, my two favorite were cruising the canal and renting a house in Normandy--the two trips where we became one with the country.

I just love reading your blog--and I forward it to one of my daughters, another francophile! We'll meet one day..à bientôt!


Hi Richard,
Congrats on your success over the past 3 years! I know my life in Paris ( and London) wouldnt have been the same without you. Your secret knowledge of Paris is unbeatable. Your charm and mangetism is obvious.
Here's to many more years of tours and blogging!
