A graduate of France’s prestigious INSEAD business school who has lived in the French Alps, in Paris, and on the Côte d’Azur, Preston prides himself on delivering exceptional access and experiences (making croissants with a Parisian baker, for instance, or taking a cooking class with a chef at a Michelin-starred restaurant) to his clients. He knows the country’s influencers and tastemakers, and is able to open doors that are typically closed to travelers, including a marquis’s private estate just outside the City of Light. With his finger on the pulse of all things new and notable, Preston can hook travelers up with stays at some of Paris’s hottest hotels, like Hotel Lutetia, which appeared on Travel + Leisure’s 2018 It List.
"I connected with a few potential service providers and Robert’s approach really stood out. As I have traveled the world on business extensively, I was looking for memorable, unique Paris moments. We spent a day with a chef who took us to the market, gave us a cooking lesson, and took us to wine merchants. We also had champagne with a champagne producer at the foot of the Eiffel Tower. Bob’s attention to detail and the high quality of service of the people he chooses locally made the logistics of the trip simple and amazing. We would have never been able to do the same on our own." - Lou Murray
