Bonte cofounded his company, French Side Travel, with his father Paul, a 40-year veteran of European travel planning. Tapping that knowledge, Bonte is able to secure perks like an after-hours dinner at Versailles with a menu by Alain Ducasse, or a tour of Bordeaux's immersive art destination, Bassins de Lumières. The duo has a team of specialists across France, ensuring Bonte always has an insider's perspective on even the most under-the-radar destinations.

Naturally, Bonte excels at itineraries centered around history. Clients might explore the Roman ruins of Glanum, in; tour the cathedral of Rouen, in Normandy; and visit the square (also in Rouen) where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake. And of course, Bonte books exquisite hotels along the way.
