Paris is an overwhelming city and we are pleased and excited to offer you premier access to the Travel Channel's Paris
concierge, Rik Gitlin. Rik has serviced over 2000 guests and
without question will become "your best friend in Paris"
regardless of how well you know the City of Light. Rik can
assist you with all of your requests including restaurant
reservations, spa trips, excursions, car services, or whatever
spontaneous things you wish to organize. His goal is to go
back and forth between the both of you via phone, e-mail
and end up with the 'Paris Visit' of your dreams. He will be
available during your entire stay in Paris as well.
In addition to his concierge obligations, Rik can act as a
liaison between you and your property manager during
your time in Paris to ensure that all of your needs are met.
The best time to start working with Rik is as soon as your
Paris Luxe Vacation Apartment booking is complete since
many restaurants request reservations far in advance.
Here's an excerpt from one of our California based guests, Linda Scilacci.
I want to thank you for recommending our Concierge-at large, Rik Gitlin. Rik single-handedly made this a trip perfect! From the moment we first started our planning on the phone, and for weeks thereafter, he was a consistent, reliable and creative
source of everything in Paris. He helped us in so many ways, in the logistical planning, providing great recommendations, and mostly -- for understanding us and the type of experience we were seeking. And once we were there, he was always accessible, no matter what time I called or what day it was... he was there to answer all our questions, reschedule appointments, and just be a go-to source in Parie! So, thank you for providing us with this gem. "
And another one from William Ingram.
"Rik did a fine job for us and you should recommend him without reservation!"
