Although late in picking us up, Bryce tried to make up for it by giving us a thorough tour of Marseille, Aix-en-Provence and Cassis, including a special vista spot to take photos. He is knowledgable of the history of the area and gave us a constant commentary while maintaining road and passenger safety.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Sandra, my apologies again for the delay at the beginning of the tour which was due to circumstances out with my control. I will ensure this will not happen again and I will work to maintain the high standards I personally care to offer to all the visitors I will keep being very happy to welcome in Provence-Alpes-Cote-D'Azur; happy you eventually enjoyed of my service despite this unprofessional departure; Kind regards Bryce

Our original guide Oliver cancelled on us but Bryce saves the day. He really knows Marseille and Aix en Provence. Marseille is very underrated and Bryce being a native was clearly the right person to show us how beautiful the city is. We actually liked it more than the more celebrated Aix even Provence. Highly recommended

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Gordon; Thank you very much for your kind feedback; I am very happy you appreciated so much Marseille; I hope soon I will show it by e-bike also as I just posted a new service for the sportive visitors also :) Hope to have the pleisure to show you other parts of Provence another time you will return here Kind regards Bryce

Bryce gave us a wonderful and informative tour in Marseilles. He was knowledge on the history and culture of the areas including Aix-en-Provence and Cassis. He was very sensitive to our mobility issues and fought to bring his van close to our ship to minimize our walking. He was also something of a philosopher. We would recommend him for a tour from Marseilles. The only minor negative was his accent making the English somewhat difficult to decipher at times, but we helped him clarify. He liked that.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Phyllis, thank you very much for your feedback; it is true I still have a little french and italian accent when I speak and it is more than true I appreciate those ones who dare trying to perfect my prononciation on the words I choose to employ to make enjoyable the services I offer; I really hope I will have a chance to welcome you again for other tours from Marseille or any other city in the Provence surroundings; Kind regards Fabrizio

the tour was well planned and our guide was knowledgeable and able to convey his knowledge. My only reason for not giving 5 stars was perhaps beyond our guides control. His commentary while driving long stretches between locations was difficult to hear in the back row of the vehicle. A speaker system would have been helpful. Other than that, it was excellent.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Stan; In general my passengers do not have problems to hear at the back that is how I do not use any speaker system so far; You could ask me to speak a bit louder or try to seat closer if you could not hear me, that is what the people do in case they cannot hear me from the back seats; Considering your comment I am going anyway to inform myself about the costs for such a system; I am happy you enjoyed of the tour provided and wish to have the pleasure to welcome you again Stan; Kind regards Bryce

Bryce is a very knowledgeable and engaging guide. He provided excellent commentary throughout our tour. But the real test of a good guide is how committed he is to the clients. In our case we ran into a problem with a broken key that did not allow us to continue to use the van we were using. It was through no fault of his. Bryce continued our tour by arranging taxicabs to finish the tour. We had an excellent time. We recommend Bryce to everyone.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Steven; thank you very much for your detailed comment; it is true I always try to find the best way i can find to satisfy my clients also in case of last minute little problems; I care to thank also you for the fact you did not panic while I was trying to find a solution for us to keep enjoy of the time you booked with me; I hope you also enjoyed of the Rosé I offered you and that I will have a chance to meet you again in Provence to experience new tineraries; Kind regards Bryce

Despite being "just a driver; not a guide" (his words, not ours!), Bryce was so kind and helpful to us, recommending good places to eat in Cassis and taking the time to show us where to go in Aix-en-Provence.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Diane; I always care to remind my passengers I am not a Licensed Guide but just a driver (as clearly indicated in my profile) despite the fact I present the history and culture connected to the sites (I cross during the itineraries chosen) studied and chosen also to help any type of visitor to discover the Marseille region is a place anybody can feel more than welcome; Thank you very much for finding the time to report your experience with me; See you very soon again Diane; Kind regards Fabrizio

Bryce is prepared to give you a wonderful day in Provence. He is very knowledgeable and energetic to have you feel the countryside and see all small aspects of life in Provence and it's relationship to Marseille. Bryce also has some very good Domain relationships that he will use to your tours advantage.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Edward; I am very happy you enjoyed so much of the tour and I am happy also you could notice how delicate are the realities to accept when we organise a taylor-made tour; it was excellent to quit Aix-en-Provence earlier as demanded on the way back to the ship; despite an unusual 20mn congestion we eventualy drived back quietly (despite your understandable worries) before the strict limits of your ship ; I look forward to meet you all soon again to discover Marseille next time; Kind regards Fabrizio

Thank you to Bryce for a fantastic day in Provence. We met early in the day at our cruise ship and made the drive to Aix en Provence Bryce provided interesting commentary about the area. we went to a wonderful market and Cezanne's work room. We also visited Cassis and Bryce suggested s a beautiful photo stop high above the town with stunning views. Bryce was very accommodating throughout the day as we modified a few things that we had planned. I would highly recommend Bryce and tours by locals

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Vivian, it is nice to receive comments as yours; I always try to follow the original itinerary booked and still open to modify a few things in case it can be possible; It was very nice to take good care of all of you; Wishing to meet you again; Kind regards Fabrizio

This guide could criticize other drivers by calling them donkeys- we asked to see the lavender fields and he made some excuse- then he cut our tour short by 1 hour and offered to take us to another village for an additional some- I would not recommend this guide. plus he was late stating he had sent me an email-when was not true,

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: The part on this comment concerning"the delay and the reduced duration"is a rumor & TBL will confirm(TBL records the messages before EARLY departures also);I presented ALL the sites & the kind people of any ORIGIN(despite 2 dangerous drivers)of this "Aix,Marseille & Cassis tour" FROM TOULON in a enjoyable way and that appeared to frustrate;Despite this feeling I operated the tour patiently and honestly,as usual, despite the extra-delations(sad rumors also)declared eventually TO TRY to discredit an "AREA".

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We can confirm the timing that Bryce states above and we are confident that the misunderstanding on timing was the primary issue with this booking. We urge both travelers and guides to have absolute certainty about the timing of their bookings and to request an update of their booking confirmation if any changes have been made via the messaging system.

Brice was fantastique!!! He was on time--very knowledgeable--professional and spoke relatively good english. He covered a great deal of terretory --and did a great job of navigating some very narrow streets with a large van. We were a group of 8 people--mostly over 70 and Brice was able to explain a lot of local history. We were from a cruise ship and I can honestly say--out of 6 tours I arranged (all private) Brice did the best job.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Michael, Thanks for your great review; I am the first to consider my french as my italian (my native languages) are relatively good also; Since this year I am working on my spanish as every 10 years I want to try to learn how to "better" communicate using a new different language; I want to thank you again for organizing the itinerary considering all the important needs of the great 8 people of your group; I hope to welcome you again soon Michael; Kind regards Brice

Brice was amazing. He was the most enthusiastic guide we've ever had. He was incredibly energetic and full of positive energy. He made us all want to move to Marseilles! He customized a tour perfect for our time frame and desire and took us to one of the most beautiful wineries we have seen. He also made time for Pont du Gard, Avignon, and Aix en Provence! Our only regret is that we didn't have more time to spend with Brice. He was my dad's favorite guide of a seven-day trip! Thanks, Brice.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Regina, in case I will miss you so much do not hesitate to return to Provence, I will introduce you Silvio, my colleague who is also a great person and he always do his best for the people to have a memorable day; I look forward to see you soon all Regina, Kind regards Brice

Good tour. Highly talkative guide. Spend more time in Cassis. If visiting Cezanne's Atelier, spend the time in the garden (free) rather than paying more than 5 Euro to see the unmemorable single room upstairs.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Fay, it is a pity you were not excited of the visit of the humble but unique workshop Paul Cezanne created for himself to enjoy of his endless inspiration; I am happy another member of your group expressed trough the toursbylocals messengery they really enjoyed my commented tour; next time you will visit Cassis I would recommend you to experience a boat tour also to discover the quiet & beautiful Calanques nature I am sure you would love; I look forward to welcome you all again Fay;Kind regards Brice

Bryce is a very knowledgeable and pleasant person with a wonderful sense of humour. He is very flexible and we were able to spent more time in places that interested us. We were very comfortable in the van and thoroughly enjoyed our day even though we did not visit and see Old Nice and the flower market. We will definitely contact him again when we visit his home town Marseille.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Shekar, your small family and you have been very kind and I care also to thank you for the nice "Grilled Gnocchi with reblochon" you cared also to offer me in Monaco; Come in "Mars" at the beginning of July so I will be able to show you more than the flower market I want to mean the lavender fields of the Luberon; I look forward to see you again soon dear Shekar; Kind regards Brice

Very good & safe driver. Very nice guy but should gain more knowledge of historical value of sites we visited and passed along the way, (ie statues,buildings). Tour was a little boring for $$ paid, we expected to learn more of what happened in the areas over the years etc. Didn't have time to go to old city market to shop at the end of the tour. Tours by locals (as indicated by Brice) seem to have some problems getting into the gates of ports, perhaps due to other tour cos having contracts with cruise Cos

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Carol; I am surprised because at first you wanted to try to split the costs with other people;In my profile page you can see I am just a driver-guide (not a licenced guide);The people normally enjoy pretty much the historical presentation(I offer for free) & also enjoy the time they have to every places we visit following the itinerary decided before booking;Please consider to invest a more important budget for your next toursbylocals licenced-guide and safe-driver needs Carol; Best wishes Brice

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Thanks for your feedback. As indicated on Brice's profile, he is not a licensed guide and should not be expected to give in-depth commentary on historical sites. Access to the port area for any independent guide, not just ToursByLocals guides, can be problematic and may require a short walk to exit the port. We've asked Brice to make sure and indicate that on his tour description. On this day a Marseille Port security officer was more restrictive than usual.

We met Brice for 2 different tours; both excellant. He is a good driver and showed us how to get a local feel which was our desire. He was able to park for us close to things we needed to see and accomodate my mother who isn't very mobile. Very flexible with your schedule. We very much enjoyed our time with Brice.

There were 7 of us doing a tour from a cruise. Brice is very passionate about his home town of Marseille and the Provence area and it is well reflected in the tour. We were able to see and do a great deal more then tours from the cruise line for less money. We highly recommend the tour and enjoy Brice's passion.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It is always a better pleasure for me to take care of people who really appreciated my comments Howard, I just hope to see you again soon for another tour : ) Say hello to all please ! Kind regards Brice

Thank you Brice! We had a wonderful tour. Brice is very knowledgeable and a very pleasant person. The tour was exactly what we were looking for. An enjoyable ride through the French countryside. The Eagles nest is one of the best places we visited in Europe. Brice knew what we were looking for and provide an excellent itinerary. The visit to the winery was great, but the actual wine tasting was a bit expensive and too limiting. We highly recommend Brice and Tours by Locals.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks you very much for your feedback Miguel, I am going to report your comments to Catherine (the person in charge for you to experience your wine tasting) to check if there are solution to make it more valuable... I know a bit Catherine so please consider their charges are pretty important and that the Chateau was pretty busy also : ) I look forward to welcome you again very soon and really hope most of you could enjoy my "esperanto" looking spanish also ; ) Kind regards Brice

Brice has great energy and really adapted to how much we liked to spend at each destination. We spent more time in places that interested us like Eze and less time in areas of less interest and heavy crowds like Monaco. We were very comfortable in the van and saw everything we expected and more. Great tour Brice, Thank you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Daniel! this is my first review in toursbylocals.com and I really thank you for it, I hope the next time you will come in Marseille I will be able to do the tour for you, Say hi to the two little birds ; ) I wish to all of you the best and really hope to be able to show you the Provence I love one day : ) Kind regards, Brice
