"...and when you took us to Versailles and to the Louvre and for our lunch date at the Eiffel Tower -- you had us into all three of those hugely popular places by special entrances within 15 minutes! Even though the general public lines were hundreds and hundreds of people long in all three places! We would have stood there for HOURS if we had tried to get in on our own. Again, John, it was the mark of a real pro knowing where to go and how to take care of your customers!"
