My hobby is serching Provence for interesting places, wineries and craftsmen off the beaten path.
I left the world of restaurants to embrace a new path, that of a tour guide. However, I continue organizing workshops in wine tasting and creating Provencal tapas.
I took a two-year course in national tour guiding and have a professional tourism driver's licence.
We offer organized tours leaving from Marseille but I would be happy to pick up your group in Toulon or St. Tropez by posting a customized tour for you. The idea being that you spend a great day in Provence.
I work with my American guide friend from Washington state, Kathy S.
I provide a comfortable , 8-seat, air-conditioned minivan.
I'm open to your ideas and special requests which we can discuss in order to design the right tour for you.
Here's wishing you a marvelous vacation full of happy memories of Provence.
A Recent Review of this guide
Sam is a lot of fun and really knows how to find his way around the French cities and hillside spots. Our mountain picnic was memorable. We loved visiting the market place and picking out our lunch ingredients. We also enjoyed our trip in the mountains to enjoy and views and wonderful photo opportunities. He seems to know everyone in the little towns. We felt we really got to see the most beautiful spots and experience life the French way.
