He was a fantastic guide. We got him on our second day in Aix. He not only gave us the history of Aix but took us on back streets and pointed out local interests. He knew so many people in the streets and greeted them all with a smile. He took us to the Market and showed us the best places for lavender, olives, garlic, etc. After the tour, with a cup of coffee creme, he helped us plan our next few days as we traveled to Gordes. We highly recommend him, his english is impeccable.
