No Matter where you travel, it’s always best to understand a little of the language, manners and customs of your host country in order to be polite and respectful to the locals. A few of these hints and tips may help you out as you tour through France while it’s also helpful to know a little French.
Contiki’s tour managers live and work in Europe full time and are also on hand to help you out throughout your tour.
The French are a very proud race of people, the Parisians even more so than most and their language is one thing they are extremely proud and protective of. Making an effort to speak a few words in French, (even if it is only hello, please, thank you and goodbye) will make a huge difference (again, particularly in Paris) to the locals attitudes towards you. Your Tour Manager will be able to fill you in and help you get down the basics.
