Aurélie de Royer
1889 Travel France was named after the year 1889, the year that the Eiffel Tower was built in Paris for the world fair, the Exposition Universelle. In the year 1889, France was first in the world for its excellence in luxury and crafts. At 1889 Travel France, we also place excellence at the heart of our work: excellence of service, excellent attention to detail as well as to our unique locations and experiences.
1889 Travel France is an incoming travel agency focused on luxury travel and luxury experiences. We define ourselves as an experiential agency, one at the border of a travel agency and an events company.
We specialise in creating bespoke holidays and experiences all over France, and our team personally travels all around France in order to source the very best locations and experiences- we are very hands on in regards to the sourcing process.
We enable our travellers to enjoy the privilege of experiencing French excellence in arts, luxury and gastronomy by visiting workshops and spending unique moments with the greatest craftsmen, designers, and experts. Our expertise and contacts allow us to create experiences that are not available to the general public.
At 1889 Travel France, we believe that the ideal travel experience should combine intense emotions and unforgettable encounters, with the highest quality of service.
We pride ourselves on the level of detail and care we put into each and every experience. We tailor each and every request to suit the needs and wishes of the travellers, and do our very best to accommodate every single request- no matter how big or small.
Our travel experiences range from after-hours tours of the Louvre, extravagant dinners in castles, private dinners in the homes of Michelin star chefs, and encounters with celebrated French craftsmen, artists and designers. Our goal is to make sure that we enable our clients to live out their travel dreams!
In March 2019, we opened our Bordeaux office through the incorporation of Unik Experience to strengthen our local presence in the Bordeaux and Cognac regions. Claire Ballarin, founder of Unik Experience, has joined our team in order to create and manage a local 1889 office in Bordeaux.
Our Bordeaux office aspires to unveil the best, the most exclusive and the inaccessible parts of Bordeaux, its region and its fine wines. By placing the client at the heart of their work and by respecting their visions, 1889's desire is to create and realize tailor-made experiences. We also offer expertise in wine tourism through consulting, accompaniment and training alongside vineyard owners.
Through opening a local office, we are able to strengthen our offerings for wine tourism as well as for client-relations experiences with famous Bordeaux Vintage wines and Cognac Maisons via 1889 Experience.
