Customer Stories

The 2017 tour in France exceeded all of my expectations! Once again, Richard put us in the footsteps of our Acadian ancestors -- both the original 17th century pioneers and the 18th century refugees. His passion and energy is boundless, and it permeated our very convivial and entertaining group. It was a special treat to meet French cousins whose ancestors chose not to depart to Louisiana in 1785. This was truly a once-in-a-lifetime trip.
