Kathy S.

Marseille, France

Greetings from Provence! One of the best features of my tours is the fact that I provide a driver, a great advantage because time isn't spent looking for parking.

We'll be dropped off and picked up as close to the points of interest as possible. The driver concentrates 100% on driving while I give the tour and answer your questions. Also, I've learned through feedback over the years that clear English is appreciated. Although I've lived in France for 31 years, I'm American, so you should have no difficulty understanding my English.
The tours listed are just a sample of possibilities. I'll be happy to customize tours for you. Whether it's cultural and historic sites, wine tasting, nature walking or simply shopping, I'll take you there!
Exploring this amazing region and tracking down its most interesting and beautiful places continues to amaze and surprise me.
My name is Kathy. I grew up in Washington St. , spent many years in Santa Barbara and New York City, arrived in France in 1986 and have been working as a guide and teacher.
Looking forward to touring Provence with you!

A Recent Review of this guide

We started off on a history tour but it quickly changed to an 'experience France' tour as I right away asked if there was a market in Marseille.... and boy! was there a market! Loved, loved, loved this custom tour. The sites, the places, the chauffeur, yep! We even had a chauffeur. Great day. Highly recommend Kathy.
