Our concept is a simple one!
We deliver both essentials and luxuries to your Parisian address, using our local knowledge to provide exactly what you need to make the best of Paris. Choose from our attractive and carefully put together 'paniers' of gorgeous, specialty French produce and more, then add tickets, services and ideas to tailor-make the perfect vacation, and have the whole package brought to your door.
After 7 years in the vacation rental apartment business, I decided to create Travel Light Paris to follow my passion for offering excellent service and helping visitors to this beautiful city make the most of their stay, and enjoy an authentic Parisian experience.

J. Rizzo, USA. June, 2016 - Guided tour of the Marais.
Karina at Travellightparis.com was so helpful in booking a 3 hour tour of the Marais for me. She even met me at the St. Paul station to introduce me to my guide. Her attention to detail and easy manner were a treat. She helped me to enjoy an interesting and fun tour. I had a really wonderful morning in the Marais thanks to her connecting me with a fantastic guide.
Mr. and Mrs. Oliveira, USA. June, 2016 - Private wine tasting.
We LOVED the tasting with Helene. It was very intimate and a great little location so close to our apt. Helene was lovely and full of great information. I also loved that she gave us the bottles we tasted so we could drink them later and taste the differences as they opened up. Thank you so much for arranging such a lovely tasting for us both. It was my husband's favorite evening in Paris. Merci!
J. S. , Florida, USA. July/August, 2016 - Cooking classes.
Karina is wonderful. We just returned from a month long stay in Paris and Karina made all those little extras that make a trip, come to fruition. She arranged cooking classes, helped with phone set up, gave general advice and even mailed back items that we left in our flat. Karina is now my go to person in Paris and we WILL be using her again and again. I highly recommend Travel Light Paris to help make your dream vacations a reality.
Mr. and Mrs. P. Kumar, USA. August, 2016 - Eiffel Tower tour and cruise on the Seine.
We immensely enjoyed our stay in Paris.We have nothing but praise and appreciation for your help. Our Eiffel tower tour was a breeze. despite booking at the last moment through you. We couldn't plan alot of things in advance and you definitely helped us set things in order. Thanks much once again. Good luck to you. Great Service.!!.
Mr. R. Daniels, USA. September, 2016 - Arranging various tours, tickets and activities.
We had a wonderful time in Paris and the dinner cruise was the best.
Your services were a tremendous help and made our stay in Paris an unforgettable experience.
Thank you again for all you did.
M. Duffy, USA. October, 2016 - Welcome 'panier' delivered to the apartment.
We loved the welcome basket! The champagne was truly fantastic. What we liked about it was its true chocolate undertones, which, to us, signify an excellent champagne. And the rest of the basket was yummy, wonderful, and useful – a rare combination. We carried the jellies with us all the way to Prague because we couldn’t bear to leave them behind. Travel Light Paris did an excellent and thoughtful job in putting the components together.
We will definitely recommend your service to our friends. Thank you very much. And I forgot to add that that Champagne was chilled, which was so excellent!
Mr. Saucedo, Florida, USA. November, 2016 - Groceries delivered to the apartment.
Thank you very much for taking the time to bring food and flowers for Spiro's birthday! That was such a wonderful gesture.
Farrar Estate Agency, London, UK. December, 2016 - Planning and restaurant booking.
We used Karina to help organise a day trip to Paris for a Christmas party for 44 people! She was so helpful and as a result of her help the whole day was seamless. The restaurant she recommended was superb, we could not have done it without her!
C. Patterson, MA, USA. December, 2016 - Decorated Christmas tree and assistance.
Hi Karina, From my very first contact with you your service was outstanding! Your responsiveness, professionalism and willingness to provide whatever we wanted/needed far exceeded my expectations. Thank you so much for helping to make our stay in Paris a very special one!
Mr. P. Dolce, Brazil. January, 2017 - Arranging and booking tickets, shows and wine tasting.
I am very grateful to Kimberly who indicated you and your service, to greatly facilitate my stay in Paris. Your punctuality and sympathy pleased me greatly. And all the services requested, were promptly done and beyond, giving us assistance until minutes before the shows.
Thank you so much.
We loved the wine tasting. As a wine lover, I learned and had amazing information. The oenologist very friendly and knowledgeable, made us travel in the aromas, flavors and sensations. It was a great experience and I recommend it.
In all my trips back to Paris, I would love to repeat the experience.
