This France travel agent and her colleagues arranged accommodations and activities for a 9 days in Paris. Originally we had planned only to spend a couple days in Paris and then move on to Italy after spending a weekend with friends in Nancy, so we didn't call an agent and booked a place to stay for two nights on our own near the Eiffel Tower because our boys (4 and 7) wanted to see it. When we changed our plans to spend more time in Paris our agent, who had already arranged activities for us in Italy, didn't miss a beat with her wishy-washy clients and created a great trip. We got in all the sites we wanted to see with the right amount of "down" time. The guides she arranged were all very good and the second place we stayed (5 nights after returning from a weekend in Nancy) was waaaaaay better than the first place we chose ourselves and we would have never found that place in that location on our own. Only hiccup was it was an apartment and we were supposed to pick up a key in a lockbox but when we got there the property manager didn't put the key in the box, so we had to call and wait about 45 minutes (with the Taxi meter running) for them to bring the key. Not our agent's fault but she might want to know.
It was our first time in Paris, so the night-time driving tour at the beginning really gave us our bearings and we finished at the Eiffel Tower just as it lit up for the evening. We made it to most of the standard sites, but the kids like the Eiffel Tower and of course Euro-Disney the best.
After France we spent time in Sicily and although she didn't arrange any part of that trip our agent provided a ton of recommendations for stuff to see and do which was really helpful.
Jet lag really killed us at the beginning. I might do a better job trying to get a connection that makes that easier on the family, if that's possible. I should have cancelled the reservation I made and let our agent hand the whole thing, as well.
