Michel drove us us around some of the most beautiful small towns of Provence; Sanary sur mer, Bandol, Saint Cyr (where he treated us with a surprise taste of local cheese, wine, and baguette), then on to Le Castellet, the quiet town of Evenos, and the lovely Ollioule Canyon. He was well versed in the history and art of the region and had the best sense of humor. We had a very enjoyable day and highly recommend Michel as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so glad you liked the sites, this tour is different of what is usually done and that mix of countryside and seaside is really one of my favorite blend. Thanks.

Michel was the most attentive, knowledgeable, entertaining and helpful tour guide we have ever had... by far! Book him now, while you can! We had a fantastic day with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for a very plaisant day! The program of this tour is different than what people do usually and it is, I think, much more enjoyable. Thanks again. Michel

Michel was our guide for the Clinesmith family of eight when we toured Toulon France on May 18, 2017. Tours by Locals arranged the van, driver, and guide, and it was a very great tour, excellent guide, and Michel even arranged a super pic- nic for us. It could not have gone better, and we all enjoyed it very much.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you very much for these nice words, it was a pleasure for me too.

Michel was incredible! This was our first stop on our cruise and we knew he set the bar high for the rest of the guides on our vacation. He was friendly, informative and very attuned to making sure he kept our group of 7 entertained while showing us an unbelievable amount of the country in the limited time we had. Could not have asked for a better guide and experience!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for that

This tour was the last and by far the best tour of our 12 day cruise to 8 ports!!! The reason is simple: Michel. He is an encyclopedia of information blended with his wry wit that is offered in doses that anyone can understand. He is insightful and has a true sense of caring and pride about what he does. Remember when we were in school and there was one teacher that really impacted you and your perspective....that's Michel! I'm spoiled now for any other guides. You are 10 star my friend **********
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Well, what can I say... If that day remains engraved in your memory I will be very happy.

Our party of 8 senior people felt we were very blessed to have Michel as our guide in our private tour of different small villages around Provence. Not only did we enjoy the romantic and beautiful sceneries he showed us but also his wit and humor! We all loved Michel and his powerful voice and charming French accent!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Shirley i'm still working on my accent, it's never sexy enough ! :)

Michel is the best. He really took care of our group of 8. Excellent and fun communicator. Extensive knowledge of area and it's history. Took us to places general tours don't go and even put together a wonderful French picnic with a spectacular panoramic view. Just a great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Next picnic in 2016 ok ?
WONDERFUL TOUR This tour was truely a highlight. The tour shows the most beautiful countryside and some of the best views you will ever see. Lunch was a picnic with, you guessed it, the best views. Michel has a wonderful knowledge of the area and loves to share this with you. This is a must do tour you won't be disappointed. Can't rate this tour highly enough.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: many thanks !

Michel is the best ! He was informative, took us to all the right places, gave great descriptions of all the locations and his driving skills are excellent. We all ate lunch together and again Michel shared more information in a very relaxed atmosphere. I strongly recommend Michel as a guide, a driver and a wonderful human being.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, it was a pleasure to have you on tour.
We had a wonderful 3 full day trip around Provance with our kind guide Michel. He was very helpful, he made every thing easy and comfortable for us. We learned a lot about Provance history, social life, food, wine, art etc with fun, as Michel explains so much through the drive with his rich and deep intellectual knowledge. He is keen on time, fits the plan, flexible for changes, can make extras! We laughed a lot and had a wonderful time. Thank you very much Michel and hope to plan for French Riviera soon.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks.. we did have a lot of fun indeed...

What a charming day we had exploring Provence - driving along the seaside in Marseille and strolling along the narrow streets browsing in the quaint shops. We actually spent two days touring with Michel who gave us excellent suggestions for how to spend our time seeing the sights and where to enjoy the best ice cream in Cassis!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I told you about the ice cream ! :)
