Oliver SandersUnited States
This was a private city tour which included visiting places related to the novel All The Light We Cannot See. Valerie met us at our hotel, from where we walked together to the old city (intra-muros). She explained the history, and also how much had to be rebuilt after the war. We visited 4 Rue Vauborel and other locations, walked the ramparts and then visited some streets where 17th century houses still exist. The tour was very interesting and in the case of the book locations, very evocative .

Virginia McGirrUnited States
Valerie was our guide last summer. We can compare her to many European guides over the years and she was one of the best. Her knowledge of Saint Malo and its history was fascinating. Plus she was charming and very accommodating of our physical shortcomings. It was a wonderful half day tour. I wish we could have taken her with us for the rest of our trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What a review ! Thank you so much Virginia, I was so glad to share my passion for my region with you. Yours faithfully Val

Our family thoroughly enjoyed the half-day private tour with Valerie. She was flexible and accommodating. The family walked away with a greater understanding of the history of Saint-Malo.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for your kind review !!! Val

Valerie was kind enough to ask us before our tour what we wanted to focus on. She did a great job of taking us everywhere and tailoring her information to the areas of our greatest interest. Saint Malo is such a special place and Valerie did a great job of bringing it to life.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks, Sue, for your very kind and personable review ! Have a great end of tour in Europe. Cheers, Valérie

Valérie was a great guide. We had read "All the Light you Cannot See" and wanted to visit places from the book and learn the history of San Malo. She was also helpful on other close places to visit. We learned a lot and enjoyed our tour.

Valérie was a great guide and knew ways around Saint Malo that my elderly mother could easily navigate. Not only did she share the history of Saint Malo with us, she also shared stories of her growing up in Normandes, e.g. Christmas traditions, her father making cidre, which made the tour more special.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much John ! A also had a great tour, you were a wonderful and implicated audience. Cheers Valérie

Our tour with Valerie was wonderful! She responded immediately for a request for parking address, was early and waiting for us, and was happily patient with my little boy. We had a lovely, relaxing, day and learned a lot about St Malo. I couldn't have asked for anything better. Thank you! Merci! Darcy
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: A very warm thanks for this lovely feedback. Both of you were just a perfect audience and Tyler is such a nice and witty boy ! Hope to see you soon in France. Cheers, Valérie
