Yvonne E.

Nice, France

Hello and welcome to Nice and the French Riviera!

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!

A Recent Review of this guide

Yvonne hat eine tolle Tour zusammengestellt, die uns in fast vier Tagen von Monaco bis St Tropez führte, uns dabei ua Cap Ferrat, Antibes, St. Paul de Vence gezeigt. Ein absolutes Highlight für uns 8 Männer war die Vintage Car Tour, die uns die Möglichkeit bot, in 4 h nacheinander in einer geführten Tour so wundervolle Oldtimer wie den Porsche 356, Ferrari 308 GTS, Corvette C2 und Rolls Royce Corniche selbst über malerische Strassen um Nizza zu fahren. Vielen Dank Yvonne! Jederzeit wieder.
