Fouad Z.

Nice, France

Hi, Fouad speaking, My friends know that the best place to look for me is at the bottom of the sea or the top of a mountain: I have a lifelong passion for nature and outdoor sports that brought me to the French Riviera after 12 years in Paris.

I gave up my desk job there, working as a consultant for Unesco's legal affairs department, to share my sense of adventure and love of this spectacular region with visitors from around the world. I have been working as a professional tour guide since 2006 and created my own company in 2014.

Familiar with all the secret trails and little-known spots in the area, I am happy to lead you off the tourist path and arrange outdoor activities for sports and adventure enthusiasts or families with children, as well as gastronomic and wine excursions. Of course, we can also visit the well-known highlights of the region, like St-Paul de Vence, Eze, St-Jean Cap Ferrat, Monaco, Menton and St-Tropez.

To keep the experience personal, all my tours and private and customized. You can expect maximum comfort in my Mercedes seven-seat van.

If you are a curious traveler, if you love nature, art and local gastronomy, if you are open to the unexpected. . . we will have a lot of fun together!
