 ANNOUNCING
THE OOH LA LA! PARIS TOUR
with author Jamie Cat Callan
APRIL 24 - MAY 1, 2016  
Join Jamie Cat Callan, 
author of the international best-selling books 
and 
this Spring in the City of Lights!

Meet the celebrated French beauty experts  featured 
in Jamie's books.
Discover your own unique joie de vivre
and the stylish woman you were always wanted to be.
  

Your tour includes:

7 Nights in Paris at Hotel Baume, a stylish 4-star hotel in St. Germain Des Pres, beautifully appointed and convenient to all the chic Left Bank shopping destinations.

 Personal Limo Pick-Up at the Airport.  Regardless of your arrival time, you will be greeted by a driver and brought directly to the door of the hotel for check-in.  Trés facile!

Airline Reservation Assistance.  My business partner, The Traveling Professor and I work with Wayne Coven of Empress Travel in New York City.  He will help you get the best and most convenient flights and connections.  Or you can book yourself--it's up to you!

Champagne Welcome.  Upon the evening of your arrival, you'll meet all the Ooh La La! Ladies during our little fete at the hotel. 

Welcome Dinner.  Join us for a get-to-know-you welcome dinner at a fabulous local (and authentic!) French restaurant.  Our treat!

Meet with the Beauty and Style Experts Featured in Jamie's Books.  
No other tour to Paris provides you with a personal introduction to French beauty experts and style experts, as well as the charming French women, you've met in the pages of Jamie's books.  Now, you'll meet them in person!
Professional French Tour Guide.
Mimi Bleu, director of Paris Travel Groupe and the editor of Belle Inspiration Magazine will accompany us every step of the way and assist us with her expert (and charming) advice.  If you'd like to create your own itinerary for the day, Mimi will help you customize something special.  Mimi is an American, married to a French man and she's made Paris her home for the last nine years.  You can think of her as your own personal concierge.

Small Group Size.
The Ooh La La! Paris Tour is limited to 10-14 ladies.  (We like to give everyone special attention!)  Plus, this allows us to dine in authentic Parisian restaurants and cafes and to move easily around the City.

Meals.
All breakfasts are included, as well as our celebratory welcome and farewell dinners.  And since many of us have dietary restrictions, lunches are up to you, and aside from the welcome and farewell dinners, you can chose to go out to a restaurant or just get something light at a bistro.  It's up to you!

The Traveling Professor.
Jamie partners with the international travel expert, blogger and author, Stephen Solosky, The Traveling Professor.   Stephen will help you with travel details, sending in your payments, arranging for limo pick-up and extending your trip beyond Paris, if you so chose.  Stephen is available to discuss trip insurance, airline deals, and any other concerns you might have prior to your trip to the City of Lights.

What else is included?
We take care of all your local transportation in Paris, museum tickets, arrangements for French style and beauty experts to talk to our group, as well as shopping and individual excursion advice.

Special this year for writers and would-be writers.
By popular demand, I am hosting two evening writing workshops, perfect for memoirists, fiction writers and travel writers.  Paris is the perfect place to write!

Helpful Notes:

While the Ooh La La! Paris Tour is a Ladies Only tour, some women have met up with their significant others once the tour is over.  After all that ooh la la! (and new lingerie) you might want to arrange a rendezvous.  

Hotel Baume is a top-rated Paris hotel, recently renovated, and very chic.  Still, Parisian hotel rooms tend to be smaller than what we've come to expect in the U.S.A.

Please feel free to reach out to either me or The Traveling Professor by phone or email before the trip.  We are here to answer any questions you might have--practical or not so practical!

On some days, we walk as much to 4-5 miles, up and down stairs and there are cobblestones!  This tour is for healthy and fit ladies who want to bring a bit more ooh la la! back into their lives.  (That said, you are always free and even encouraged to take a taxi back to the hotel if you feel you need a rest.  Mimi and I can always help you get a taxi.)

Overseas health/emergency evacuation insurance is strongly recommended.  Please check with your health carrier.  Also, trip cancellation insurance is recommended and can be purchased from Allianz or 855-604-4441. Our  travel agent, Wayne Coven at Empress Travel (212) 410-9990 can also help you with with travel details.

Airfare is NOT included.  This allows you to be flexible and arriving early or extend your trip, if you'd like.  Our Ooh La La! ladies fly in from all over the country and sometimes from international locations. 

This trip is perfect for professional women, who'd like to pamper themselves, retired women looking for adventure and mothers and daughters, sisters, girlfriends who would like to experience their own special "Sabrina" moment.  Most of our travelers are 35+ years old, educated, fun-loving, generous, sweet and enthusiastic.

Here's some lovely things previous Ooh La La! Ladies have said about our tour:

"Bon Marche was truly the icing on the cake of this life-changing week.  It really made an imprint with regards to femininity and sensuality.  I see this week as a turning point for me, and cannot thank you enough for guiding me on the pathway to a new way of being."
--Angela V.

"Jamie, you made the week so special.  Your positivity, your joyful enthusiasm, your willingness to ask us to go deeper within ourselves, your choice of Ooh La La Ladies, your willingness to share the connections you have made in Paris, all this made THIS trip so special."

  1. The nine of us had a great time on the May 2015 Ooh La La! Paris Tour. I felt so fortunate to create so many fantastic new memories of my favorite city in the world in the company of such wonderful women, each of whom brought something uniquely interesting to our group.

  2. I went on Jamie’s Oh La La Tour in July of 2014 and had a great time. We did so many fun things – a wine tasting/class, a chocolate tasting, museum visits, the gardens, an evening boat ride on the Sein (magical!), shopping (of course), and lots of walking around the City of Lights. I added an extra day at the end and went to the Monet Gardens in Giverny, which were breathtaking. I also spent plenty of time on my own, photographing Paris. The women in the group were wonderful. I really enjoyed getting to know them. And Jamie was the perfect “hostess,” always making sure things were going smoothly and that everyone was happy.
