The customer may not always be right, but he is always the customer, even in Paris; an effort to make the rude French waiter stereotype a thing of the past, the Paris Tourist Board is launching a new charm offensive.
As the world’s number one holiday destination (with 33 million international visitors a year) and half a million people working in tourism – that’s 9.5% of the region’s working population – Paris has good reason to nurture its tourist industry. The etiquette guide Do You Speak Touriste?, aimed at restaurants, hotels, shops and taxi drivers, is designed to make travellers feel more welcome in the City of Light.
And more likely to spend their money, including tipping.
