Welcoming you in France

Travel differently with Finding France

“I am so happy to welcome you to “Finding France.” I founded this incoming travel agency because I love my country. I’m passionate about sharing the hidden gems of our beautiful regions.

At Finding France, we strive to break down the clichés about France that often mislead international travelers. Our goal is to go behind the scenes for an in-depth look at French culture – all while taking time to build relationships. To this end, we encourage and arrange for you to meet with locals.

We aspire to allow travelers from different cultures and backgrounds to broaden their horizons and share on a different level with others. The very essence of my passion/profession is to introduce another culture’s “savoir-vivre”, “savoir-être” and “savoir-faire” (etiquette, social skills and know-how) to you.

The journeys we design become unique moments, wonderful memories, and even new international friendships.”

1st Class tour guide…Clement catered to our needs & exceeded our expectations ♥️ Such a gentleman We traveled as a family of 7, age range 11-74! Our trip was planned for us per our ideas….Clement squeezed all our wants into 6 glorious days in France! This was a trip of a lifetime for me (I’m the 74 year old) His attention to detail & his knowledge of French history was awesome! We visited all the sites plus took a day trip to Burgandy…we visited a real medieval village & ate an authentic meal prepared by local farmers wives with an added trip to a local winery! Look no further because you will not find a more professional host to enjoy this beautiful part of our world!
Trip of a lifetime
"Finding France was recommended to us by a close friend that raved about their tours. We booked about a weeks worth & went on the adventure of a lifetime. Finding France IS AS advertised & beyond!"
A Seven Star Sensory Experience
"Attention to detail is the least I can say about Clément our travel planner and guide. I run a company specialized in tourism, so believe me when I say, I am a critic. The van was impeccably clean, sanitized prior to our departure and throughout our transportation to different destinations. The choice of hotel was perfect in Bayeux! A little footstool prepared and I did not even have time to open the door, as our host did it before me! (...)"
Excellent Tour Guide
"Clement took my daughter and I on our first city tour of Paris. He has tremendous knowledge of French history and was a very pleasant human to spend the day with. While planning the outing, he offered various suggestions, beyond the typical tourist attractions, based on our specific interests and preferences. I would highly recommend a tour with Clement for a very personalized experience."
Perfect day in family with Clement
"Our family of 7, with children ranging in age from 11-19, had an absolutely wonderful time with Clemente during our tour of Normandy and during the stop at the goat farm. Clement was full of fun, interesting facts, and really connected well with our kids, who just adored him. At one point, all of us were singing together in the van! The day was absolutely perfect. Highly highly recommend!"
Champagne Region Day Trip
"Clément is an excellent tour guide that will customize your trip and take you anywhere within driving distance from Paris. He picked up our family (2 adults, 2 children) at our hotel, had beverages, free Wi-Fi, chargers at hand. We visited Moët and Chandon, had lunch at a lovely hilltop restaurant/resort, visited the Abbey where Dom Perignon resided, a smaller vineyard and the Cathedral in Reims. Overall a wonderful experience!"
Amazing Experience
"Carine was our tour guide. We were on a siblings trip for the 5 of us. She was so personable and helpful! She picked us up from our hotel and drove us to our first location. She stopped a few times to show us the beautiful scenery and told us a lot about the history of Champagne. Our first stop was great, A little local champagne wine maker. They were super friendly and welcoming. We stopped for lunch at a local restaurant. Then we moved on to a much bigger champagne producer. We enjoyed our tastings so much that we veered off the agenda. Carine was perfectly happy to accommodate us. We were all so happy to have her as our guide. We can’t wait to come back again!"
