My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our personalized tour with Michel. We started with some breath taking views of Nice. We spent time in Villefranche which was wonderful. The highlight of our day though was Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild. Michel made the museum and gardens come alive with the history and story. The fountains in the gardens were amazing. This is a must see if you come to this area. Michel was the perfect guide. He gave us the right amount of history and planning the perfect day for us

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Stacy, Thank you. Yes the villa is fabulous, most of the time you're by yoursle fto discover it, with a guide you can understand the philosophy behind each garden, and suddenly you get to see in 3 dimensions...

We were visiting Nice a few days before joining our photography tour and asked Michel to customize a tour for us. He took us to villages that were not on our on other trip, some that I would guess few tourists ever visit. This was definitely the way to go for us. Michel is an incredible guide. His English is excellent, his knowledge of the region and its history is extensive, and he just plain fun to be with. I highly recommend any tour he is leading!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Michel le also handsome, you forgot that part Tammy !!! Thank you for your Kindness It was a pleasure To have you. The village was Peillon

Date: Feb 19/18

Michel was our guide and chauffeur (for 2 days in the French Riviera. I was not able to make a plan for the trip due to other requirements so our group relied on Michel to show us around, and he did just that. The route, scheduling and points of interests were excellently chosen and timed and we were able to get a sense of the history and culture of the area. Best of all, he showed us the best (in our opinion) places to eat which of course required advanced bookings by Michel. Excellent!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It is all the point when it comes to choose a guide, relying on someone who can build the perfect day for You. Thank you for those 2 days, it was really enjoyable and fun!

Date: Sep 18/17

We wanted a comprehensive survey of the Riviera, so we asked Michel to guide us for 3 days of touring -- Nice and central area, eastern area, and western area. (This was Day 3.) Michel provided exactly what we wanted. He has a superb knowledge of the history of each location. He knows where the best views can be enjoyed, where to stroll to best experience the culture of each village, and which restaurant to go to for an elegant and picturesque lunch. Michel is an excellent guide -- truly 5 stars.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Reuben, Thank you. I want to take the opportunity to thank both of you for those 3 enjoyable days. Enjoy your last days in Nice. Best regards, Michel

We absolutely loved our private tour with Michel! He was full of interesting facts & knowledge and so much fun. As a family with 3 teenagers who are easily bored Michel kept us entertained and moving along so we were able to see & do as much as possible! He had great suggestions for us that took us off the "tourist" path. Highly recommend Michel!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: many many thanks for these kind words, it was a pleasure.

We have been traveling and using private guides for many years and Michel was possibly one of the best we've ever had. He was so knowledgeable about every aspect of our tour and answered all of our questions thoughtfully and sometimes humorously. He was fun and relaxed but we packed so much into our day that we couldn't believe it! I only wish we could have him on every tour with us.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lesesne, the region is gorgeous so it's easy to enjoy, but it's breathtaking when you know where to go and how to visit it the right way. Thanks again.

Michel is a wonderful guide. Very professional and personable. He took us on a great tour of Nice, Monte Carlo, St Paul, and Eze. It was a very busy day, but we had time on our own to do what we wanted. Michel was an excellent and informed guide who took our needs into consideration throughout the day.I would highly recommend Michel for your guide if you are traveling in the Nice/Monaco area. In addition I would like to say that our safety was never an issue and that Nice is a safe place to travel.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks !

We had a most wonderful day with Michel. He enhanced our trip in Provence with his extensive knowledge of the history and of the area. We could not have been more pleased. He was flexible as to our wishes, and very professional. We were devastated we had to miss our second day with Michel when our ship could not dock in Monaco. We will definitely seek him out for future travel. Like so many of these beautiful villages scattered around Provence, Michel is a 'gem'!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: "Michel is a gem" ! I'm going to put that right away on my business cards! :-) Thank you very much ladies, i appreciate your very nice words. I'll be happy to see you again and this time we'll also see the mountains.

Michel went above and beyond for our tour of Nice, Eze and Monaco! He is very knowledgeable about the history of the area! He customized the tour for our wishes, and changed the itinerary on the fly as we went through the day. We loved the unexpected surprise at the best view spot on the trip! Definitely feel like we got the best of the day we spent with him!!

Michel is the best. Great knowledge of the area and a personality that makes everything more enjoyable. One of our group had suffered an injury prior to our tour and Michel was able to adapt our tour to meet the needs of the injured party as well as all others need. When we return we will always seek Michel as our guide. Lee Scher
