My name is Yvonne and I am a Munich-born German. I always loved French culture and traditions and I studied them before deciding to move abroad 28 years ago. First to Turkey on the Aegean Coast for a short stay, and then to France on the French Riviera, where I worked at Nice International Airport in the ground handling department and where I had to deal with many guests and cultures.
I really liked this human dimension and I always wanted to help travellers enjoy their stay in the region by giving them local tips and advice. Knowing that, I decided to change my professional direction and went back to study Art (especially 19th-century art) and Architecture at the University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis to become a licensed tour guide, leading in German, French and English.
Moving to the French Riviera, I immediately fell in love with this region, with its golden light, the bold colours of its vegetation and picturesque villages filled with history and art; my favorite are Cannes, Antibes, Aix-en-Provence, Monaco and Saint-Paul de Vence, where I have been guiding for the last few years, always trying to create tailor-made itineraries off the beaten path with unique details and interesting anecdotes.
My job is my true passion and I love to share it with my guests and to rediscover all these magnificent sites through their eyes again every single day.
I am specialized in single-day or multiple-day private tours stretching from the French Riviera both to Provence and the Italian Riviera with all their gems but other options of tour durations can be organised.
My every-day-leitmotiv: Share, Laugh and Enjoy.
I would love to meet you and show you around lovely Nice and French Riviera!
