For many, a vacation to France is a considerable expense and represents one of the biggest investments of time and money spent for the year. There is trepidation, especially for first-time travelers, as they worry if they are doing the right thing. Although France is very “foreigner friendly”, it can be difficult to pick which sites to visit, get from point A to point B, choose hotels, budget your time, find a nice restaurant, decipher a menu, try to learn about the history, get a feel for the culture, and do all this while trying to enjoy your vacation.

TripUSAFrance is on hand to break down that barrier by making the entire experience–from booking to embarking to coming home–as frictionless as possible. Because this isn’t their first trip. The family-owned travel firm is operated by French locals Julia Girard-Gervois, her father Stephane, and her husband Peter. Julia, a Southern French native who lives in the USA during the offseason, reunites with her father each summer in France to welcome travelers from around the world on their English speaking tours. Together they use their local knowledge and savvy trip planning skills to deliver a perfect vacation and share the enrichment of living in such a historic and beautiful country.

Being with a passionate tour leader and a small group of people who love to travel is great because you are able to share exciting moments along the trip, form friendships, and have authentic experiences. These things are key to having a memorable trip but are lost on larger tours and are hard to come by if you are traveling on your own. TripUSAFrance’s skill in making them happen is what sets their tours apart from the pack.


Whether you join the South of France tour or the Normandy tour, Julia will make sure your vacation is packed with fun experiences. She will take you to restaurants that she has personally tried and approved, provide activities and history lessons, and show you landmarks that she knows well: Medieval cities, ancient castles and chateaux, traditional farms and ranches, WW2 sites, cathedrals, wineries, Roman ruins, beaches, markets, museums, and more–an insider’s trip where history meets today. The tours include a mix of the must-see sites that most people know about and plenty of the hidden gems that only locals, like Julia, know about.

There are a wide range of travelers on their tours including first timers to France, people who have never been on a group tour before, and people who have been on larger tours that are looking for some off the beaten path sites and a more personal touch. They all end up equally impressed and elated that they chose TripUSAFrance for their French vacation and have left ecstatic reviews on TripAdvisor.


Inclusive pricing provides you with breakfast and lunch each day and half your dinners, local transportation and accommodations, and all admission fees for sites and activities on the itinerary. You will have some free evenings to do as you please away from the group because a balanced vacation includes personal time.

If you want to have an unforgettable French vacation without having to plan anything, head over to to book a tour with Julia today. They still have availability for 2020 and the 2021 schedule will be up soon, but these exclusive tours fill up quickly so don’t wait.
