For Immediate Release

New Website,, Brings Service
Into Equation for Groups Securing
Arrangements in Advance of Travel to Paris
SCOTTSDALE, AZ, June 10, 2013 – Europe’s active travel leader, Pure Adventures, has launched a new website focusing on a la carte and group services for enjoying Paris and traditional France.
The site,, brings pre-travel and on-site customized services and one-stop-shopping to organized groups of six or more, explained Loren Siekman, founder/director of Pure Adventures who since the mid 1990s conducted in-depth tours of the country as Discover France.
“A good group organizer knows that travel flows best when hard-to-get hotels and rare visits are booked long in advance as well as technical details such as airport transfers and in-city tours are arranged in the same package,” said Siekman. “We do see last- minute requests for city transfers, or touring a particular museum or experiencing a wine tasting, and we’re here to facilitate and can make arrangements within hours.”
Siekman noted other web sites that provide on-line assistance for touring Paris tend to be what he called “commodity-driven” on-line booking sites supporting cheap prices but without the benefit of customer service from expert consultants.
”This is a pretty crowded space actually, but 68 million people visit Paris every year! Our angle is this: service and expert knowledge. In fact, lots of mass tour stuff in Paris is price-driven because it is so abundant with many sources.  We are bringing service back into the equation; but more importantly we are focused on groups of six or more rather and even unique experiences – something different than commodity tours.  We have affinity and school groups booking day tours, museum passes, transfers, etc. because they can’t/won’t book on their own, and we  help many travel agents because we are a one-stop shop for hard to find services and mostly non-commissioned activities.”
Multi-day itineraries around which groups can customize their own programs are coming to the website daily. These include such classic trips as Paris – Normandy – Brittany – Loire Valley; or Paris-Provence, or Paris-Burgundy, or Paris-Bordeaux. Please see The new site replaces which Siekman operated since the late 1990’s.
