I have had the pleasure of traveling to Paris with Pam four times and I'm ready to go back again! You'll shop the best flea markets, neighborhood sales, antique stores and quirky little boutiques. You'll see world-famous sites and dine at restaurants where the waiters know Pam by name. If you want to have memorable adventures and make wonderful new friends, travel to Paris with the Plucky Maidens.

My mom & I chose the Plucky Maidens tour to introduce us to Paris. We especially loved the smaller tour group, we met for daily breakfasts and wandered the flea markets together. Every day was different and so much fun. We really learned Paris by spending time walking each neighborhood as Pam pointed out local landmarks. And, so many flea markets, obviously the best part! You know how you can fall asleep thinking of a wonderful memory? This trip is that memory for me. I can't wait to join Pam for another tour.

My trip to France with the Plucky Maidens was one of the best trips I’ve ever taken.  Pam’s attention to detail was evident in every aspect of our trip...each day was planned perfectly.  We had so much fun shopping the flea markets but also visiting the highlights of the city of Paris...seeing the Eiffel Tower, a boat ride down the Seine, the gardens of the Tuileries, Laduree for macarons....we really loved every minute!

My friend Pamela and I went on the 2016 Paris plucky trip. The trip was beyond my expectations.  Our hotel was charming and quintessential Paris. The staff was accommodating and lovely. Our group was eclectic and diverse. We all watched out for one another and bonded over our plucked treasures. Our fearless leader Pam took us under her wing, shared her knowledge and tricks, and then  let us fly on our own. And soar we did!

I traveled to France with a group of life-long friends . . .we could not have picked a better "leader" than Pam of Plucky Maidens. My favorite part of the trip was . . .well the entire trip. The lovely quaint French hotel, the tourist sites as well as those off the "beaten path". We had scheduled time as well as free time . . .our trip was everything I dreamed it would be and more!!!
