Franck was amazing! He knows the area so well. On this day, we toured towards Monaco and Eze. We requested an lesser expensive, but unique place for lunch and he took us to a hidden jewel of a restaurant right on the bay. There were three couples and everyone was more than pleased with his help. We all highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Elaine, I do remember very well the 6 of you and the nice lunch with the yachts. Sorry I just come back from Dubai where I spent 1 week holidays with my son.

Franck is an amazing, insightful, and extremely knowledgeable guide. We came into Cannes via cruise ship and he picked us up for a full day tour. He guided us through beautiful Cannes and Nice (we stopped for gelato of course) and put our feet in the Mediterranean sea. My favorite stop was Saint-Paul de Vence. It is a beautiful medieval town that we NEVER would have found without the guidance of an expert like Franck. A special guide and amazing trip. Highly Recommended by these Texans!

Franck is a wonderful guide! He is professional, knowledgeable, flexible and he ensured we saw the most important areas in our limited time on the French Riviera. We were able to see so much more than we could have ever seen on a big tour or by going it alone. Franck was great with our kids and it was easy to see that he was an "insider" with lots of contacts and information about the area. He customized our tour to meet the wishes of our family and we're very grateful to have had Franck as our guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Amy, Thank you for your very nice review. The success of the tour depends also of the family I spend the day with. You were a wonderful family with beautiful kids. I wish you the best and hope to see you next time you visit the French Riviera, I still have much more to show you.

We had arranged with Franck to pick us up at the cruise ship on debarkation day. From the ship Franck took us on a tour of Monte Carlo where we were able to tour the casino before it was open for business. It was so interesting. From there we toured the palace and then a lovely drive through Monaco and from there on to Eze. From Eze we continued on to Villefranche for lunch. After our lunch and quick view of Villefranche Franck dropped us off at our hotel in Nice. We had a lovely day with Franck.

We already spent a few days in NIce and wanted a last minute change. No problem for Franck. He picked us up at our Villa and off we went into the villages. No "typical" tourist tour here. We skipped St Paul and Vence (which Franck explained we could easily do on our own). Instead, he took us to the less well-known places filled with history. We learned about the region, the history the flowers and so much ... all the while laughing and enjoying his great company. Don't think twice. Just book Franck.

Of the five guides we had on private tours during our recent cruise Franck was undoubtedly the best. We felt he was more like a friend showing us around than a tour guide. We will definitely recommend him to friends who may visit Monaco

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Denis & Kam, Thank you very much for your comments. It means a lot to me and your feeling was exactly what I am looking for. I am not giving tour as a tour guide who sometimes seems to talk to himself but as a local person willing to share is experience and the love for its region. I hope to see you both in the future to show you more of the South of France. Best wishes, Franck

5 stars-for sure Friendly, professional Took us exactly where we wanted to go-took care of getting tickets and snack to eat when we came out of museum-to save time. Made special arrangements to visit Nice Synagogue and another synagogue. Took us on scenic tour to Monaco and then Monaco itself (had Monaco license plates.) Complete narrative of sights. Helped with suitcases when arriving at ship. Very happy with Franck. Would definitely recommend him to everyone.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your very nice comments, I appreciate very much. You and your wife didn't deserve less, you were just the perfect clients. Hope you are both very well. All my best wishes, Franck

This rating really reflects the second day we had Franck. He was wonderful for our tour of Monaco however we felt for St. Tropez he was a little distracted and on his phone a little too much.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We brought the issue up to Franck who apologizes and informed us his newborn son was going through health issues when the tour was happening and for that reason he used his cell phone during the tour.

We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our tour with Franck! We have many wonderful memories to take home of French Riviera, particularly Saint-Paul-De-Vence- which, for us, has no parallel.Thank you for your hard work in organising the tour, by making every thing so easy and pleasant for us. You made our trip a memorable one and we will remember you with much fondness (particularly, Little Ali!). With Malaysian spirit, I thank you for sharing your beautiful country with us.With love, Asni-Rahman-Alma-Ali

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Asni, Thank you so very much for your message. It has been a real pleasure meeting your family. Your children were wonderful, and Ali made my day. He is such a wonderful child. I am deeply happy that you enjoyed the tour. Your children are very lucky to have parents like you who give them the opportunity to discover the most beautiful place on Earth. I wish you the best and hope to see you again in the future, sincerely Franck

Frank, took us everywhere we asked for and then recommended an absolutely marvelous place for lunch. we don't normally do lunches but what he recommended was almost a highlight for us. The weather was great which helped, of course, but, he recommended a place that the children as well as the adults all enjoyed. Nothing fancy, just great views and wonderful atmosphere.

Franck was wonderful. My wife, 11 yo daughter, & I had a great day. Thanks. Franck was very knowledgeable and fun. He went above/beyond to meet our wishes. Slipped us in/around Monaco with front door service in the most challenging areas. Very personable, feel like we know him now as a friend. Treated us to a fabulous lunch with locals. Worked in a perfume factory tour when we almost did not have time. By calling ahead, the factory gave us the VIP treatment. His connections gave us VIP treatment all day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lawson, Thank you very much for your comment. It has been a real pleasure spending the day with the 3 of you. Hope you are doing very well and wish you the best. Hope to see you in the future. Sincerely, Franck

Our tour to Monaco with Franck was exceptional. Franck's knowledge of the history of the area was very informative and interesting. He continually gave us information and background historical commentaries that proved how extensive his knowledge is. He obviously enjoys giving tours, and it shows his passion to impart his knowledge on the clients. I would highly recommend to anyone that they take a tour with Franck. I have never had a tour guide who knew so much about the areas he hosts.

Please let Franck know that we are genuinely appreciative of his professionalism and strict attention to detail. We will certainly book a tour with Franck the next time we are in the region.

Franck picked us up from the Monaco port and took us to Eze and Nice. He is a warm and charming person. Our parents joined us on the tour and Franck was extremely attentive to pace the tour to their physical abilities. His van was very comfortable and air-conditioned! (a must on a 100F weather!) He made multiple stops along the tour to let us take pictures of breathtaking landscapes. On Nice he gave us a very detailed explanation of the history and spirit of the city. We had a great time with him!

Franck was on time and VERY HELPFUL. He provided information about Nice from the time we met until he dropped us off at the hotel. Franck was very knowledgable and engaging. He anticipated timelines properly so as to avoid peak traffic periods so that we were able to utilize every minute he had with us. I can't thank him enough for such a wonderful experience and I encourage everyone to use Franck as your guide when you visit Nice;-)

Our luggage did nit make it to Nice with us. Franck was VERY diligent and quite instrumental in tracking our luggage. He then went above and beyond our expectations by taking us to airport to retrieve luggage at the end of our tour so we could enjoy the rest of our plans. Franck is an absolute MUST if visiting Nice. Thank you Franck!!
