Date: Jan 27/18

We are 8 students from Taiwan visiting French Riviera, who don't know much about European culture and history. Jacques responded to our message quickly and made sure that we will see all the highlights of Nice, Eze, and Monaco. Everything is easy to understand with a mixture of history and Jacque's personal experience. The tour was flexible with some places that we won't be able to go or discover by ourselves. We enjoyed everything about it!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: bonjour chia it was nice to spend this day with you I'm sure ; you enjoyed the lights in Monaco I hope you learned more about history in France I wish you good luck for all your diplomes in dentistry be brave and don't give up .... all my best Jacques

On October 28, 2017 we visit Provence, and Jacques was our Tour Guide. We were four couples. We arrived in the NCL - Epic ship and when we disembarked, he was already at the port waiting for us. WITHOUT A DOUBT I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Jacques to be your tour guide. He is very knowledgeable of Marseille and the entire area outside of Marseille. He prepared a customized tour for us based on our requests and it superseded our expectations. He is very pleasant, flexible and always made sure that we were enjoying.

Even before we arrive at Villefranche, Jacques communicated by email and answered my questions about his tour. He met us at the cruise terminal and off we went to walk the old city in Nice. Jacques took us to the open market, where we walked among the stalls and enjoyed the scene. When my husband said he wanted to buy some wine, Jacques took us to a neat wine shop. When my mother indicated she was hungry, Jacques took us to a perfect restaurant. When the traffic backed up, Jacques knew short cuts.

I had to go back and review the recommendations for Jacques as our experience did not reflect what I had read before our tour. I scrolled far enough down and found a review similar to our experience. Jacques spent more time talking about himself, his other "fabulous" jobs with the rich and famous, and his family than about the places we were touring. He did not smoke in the vehicle but did puff on a cigar whenever he could and brought the smell into the van. Bathroom requests were rudely acknowledged.

He was engaging with both our teenage boys and made it clear that his only interest was to ensure all four of us enjoyed ourselves. In addition to our historical sightseeing, he took us to some wonderful shops and restaurants. It was great to be with someone in whom we could place our full trust.

We were able to see in one day what would have taken four separate trips with our cruise line, including what would have been trips the following day when we went to the next port near Marseilles! Needless to say, this is a great way to see Marseilles and the surrounding area and is a great value. Jacques knows a lot about the area and can answer most any question. He is also able to manage and schedule the time to optimize the experience and is very conscientious of individual preferences.

8 of us went from St-Jean-Cap-Ferrat to Monaco for an evening. Jacques took us on a (custom) tour of Eze and stopped so we could take photos at a scenic overlook of Monaco, along the Formula 1 circuit, past the Oceanographic Institute, the Palace, the Opera House, then dinner in the port to see the gorgeous yachts, ending with the Monte Carlo Casino. Jacques was fantastic - so interesting and knowledgeable! We loved our night - it was one of the best of our trip. Jacques was a superstar. A++++ Service!

Jacques was absolutely wonderful. Took our group of four to see the Monaco high points and told us more than we could absorb in facts about Old Monaco. Then we were off to the countryside and saw the town of Nice and its wonderful flower market. At the market Jacques was kind enough to give us a sample of the local fare,Sappo. Just delicious! Then we were off to Eze and had a fabulous lunch and saw the quaint village history, and shopped. We would highly recommend Jacques for any tours he might offer.

We spent two days with Jacques as our tour guide in France and Monaco. Due to his knowledge, expertise, and charisma these were two of the most memorable days that we have had touring the world. During our first day we told Jacques that we enjoyed smaller villages more than large cities. During our second day we visited a very small city founded by the Romans, in which most of the current houses were built during the 1600's and we were the only tourist in town. It was fantastic.

Tour: #946, Saint Tropez and around-private full day-, Saint Tropez, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur, France    view tour
Date: Nov 1/14

This was the only tour that we arranged through tours by locals that we were disappointed in. Jacques took us to St. Topez as we had requested but he gave us no commentary on our way there. He simply talked about all the people he had taken on tours and what he had done in his life. He is also a cigar smoker and the van reeked of cigar smoke. I'm not sure he is all that familiar with this area as he is from Cannes and perhaps he would be more engaging had we chosen that tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Susan, I'm really surprised by your feedback as I did this tour just as I have many other times before.I thank you for your comment as it offers me an occasion to do better next time, I will provide more information between Toulon and St Tropez, and although I never smoke cigars inside the vehicle, I will do my best to ensure the transportation always clean and smelling good. Thanks.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: The guide manager brought the cigar concern to Jacques and now he will make sure that other passengers don´t smoke inside the van.

Jacques became our personal friend. We spent two weeks in Luberon and he was our guide for three days. We wanted to see "the real life". Guides are expected to be punctual and polite, know fascinating places, get you there, and avoid traps . . .and Jacques did. Friends are patient with your eight-year-old French, laugh at your jokes, and challenge you to eat things you would never dare at home. With Jacques, the France we met was stunningly friendly. That is precisely what we wanted! Would use him again.

Do not his the automobile museum. Spectacular! After the standard sites in Monaco, Jacques took us to the hill town of Eze. Do not miss this. It is wonderful. The only thing I would have wished were better was a restaurant recommendation (poor) and Javques' sometimes strangely accented English.

Our guide spent most of the day trying to boost his ego and tell us wild stories about himself. We did not visit any Picasso Museum as advertised nor did we see Princess Grace's grave site or the Casino in Monte Carlo. We realize we could not get down into Monte Carlo but some of us had been there before when there is a race and you can get to the Casino, we did not. Disappointed our friends who had not been there. This man charged a large sum and did not deliver. You owe us a refund.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: monsieur , It was the grand prix historique. they closed the parking lot completely! What was I suppose to do? I apologize but some days it is impossible to do things! Monaco is a very unique place as I explained to you and I did my best to overcome the issues we faced. When the police ordered us to move, we had to obey them. Due to the lack of mobility of one of the customers in the group, we were not able to move as fast as other groups usually do.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: The comments above came up as a surprise to us and to the guide since Jacques has an impressive feedback history with ToursByLocals. In order to improve his services, we forwarded Mr Gambone's comments to the guide and to his support manager who are working on strategies to avoid impressions like the ones mentioned by Mr Gambone.

Jacques was our most favorite guide. Everyone loved him. He's warm, funny & engaging. You really felt like he was a friend immediately. Our full day tour began with a visit to St. Paul de Vence, then a visit to Cassis, the most enchanting fishing village. We had lunch at a delightful lunch there. We also spent some time in Castellet another beautiful little village. We highly recommend Jacques & will definitely book him again. He has so many amazing stories to tell. Never a dull moment with Jacque

The guide was Laurent (not Jacques). He was not as knowledgeable as other guides we used during our holiday and less organised. The itinerary was over-optimistic - it would have needed at least 3 hours longer than the 7 hours we had available to have fitted in all the places shown so we were always slightly on rushed to see the places we were able to visit. Notwithstanding this, the visits to the old Synagogues in Cavaillon and Carpentras were very interesting.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: As I told you, with the mistake you did with the reservation date: october 7th instead 9th I said to you It was impossible for me to guide you , I was with another group for the 7th. then ,I asked to Laurent/Dov to be your guide as he know perfectly the tour and he live in this district. now; for this tour,from Marseille there oftenly problems with the traffic during office hours.

He used our time to conduct business related to the Cannes Film Festival on his cell phone. We truly never had his full attention...incredibly disappointing! Here are just a couple of items for your info about him: 1. His van smelled of cigar smoke, and he 'smoked/sucked' on the cigar during the out of doors time with us. 2. The 3 Nice art museums he took us to were all closed. He seemed way too proud of himself and his doctorate in art history, but why didn't he know these museums would be closed?

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sorry that you were disappointed. I received 5 calls from the film festival organisation in 8 hours, sorry for this problem, but I explained the situation and thought you were OK with it. I do hold a cigar, but it was always unlit and I never smoke in my vehicle. The museums had a surprise strike that day and it was impossible to know.

In the morning we managed to get the the Vieux Port which gave us an up close look at Marseilles' busiest fish market. We then drove along JFK cornish arrived at Cassis. We had a beautiful lunch by the old port, then moved on to see the sights. Overall, I definitely recommend this as a great experience!
