WHAT OUR TRAVELERS SAY

"France through the Ages" was a feast for the body, mind, and soul!


David B.

Even though each of us has traveled to France on several occasions, taking "the road less traveled" on Smithsonian's "France through the Ages" tour was thoroughly enjoyable and enlightening. This was our first Smithsonian tour but assuredly will not be our last. 


Marie L.

This tour offered me a glorious buffet of France. Each day we got to sample new things and they were all wonderful. With my appetite fully whetted, I want to return and see more. 


Sharon S.

I loved this tour of France. The trip lived up to all my expectations. My tour guide was exceptional. 


Steven M.

This trip was very well planned. It would have been difficult to get to all of these places on my own because we covered a lot of territory in a short time. You'd have to be an expert already to do this alone.
