Jacques was amazing! Very passionate guide. We learned so much about all the beautiful places he shared with us and also took us off the beaten path to hidden treasures. Excellent, charming and accomodating with the older members of the group, but also made sure my kids had a great time. Aside from being a fantastic guide, I will also add that he is probably one of the most interesting people you will ever meet! Thanks for the many great memories my family will cherish for a lifetime.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour nicholas thank for your review it's indeed a very nice day I hope you will remember what I show and learn you kiss everybody for me jacques

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: bonjour cindi thank fot your review it was nice to be with you I hope your husband enjoyed the vine he bought.... now you know more about the " French Riviera" and I hope you will like it when you will come back . amicalement jacques guide national

Our tour of Monaco and surrounds was our second day with Jacques as a guide. He was able to supply good history of the area and made sure we had an panorama of the entire state. 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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: bonjour Joan , the day was nice and sunny for october sorry for the restaurant , It always difficult to find good restaurant in Eze as there is a lot of restaurant close in Oct. Next time , I will book in other restaurant and sorry for my english , as I speak more english than "american" Lift for elevator for exemple just I hope you spended 2 good days with me.. I will send you the pictures I promess jacques

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

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: bonjour everybody the day was very nice but we didn't visit St paul de Vence ... it's too far away from Marseille in one day!!( next time !! from Nice; Cannes , Monaco ) We saw Marseille , le Castellet , Cassis and the Calanques. Take care of you. Bises Jacques

Jacques gave us a super excellent tour. In 8 hours we covered the entire French Riveria with a driving tour through the cities of Monaco, Monte Carlo, Antibes and Cannes. We also enjoyed a walking tour of the villages of Eze, St. Paul Du Vence, Antibes Old City and a visit to the Picasso Museum. It was a photographers dream to be given tour by Jacques. He was very accomodating with my photo needs. I am a pro photograper,if you would like to see photos of this tour email me at kris@kristenkay.com. Thanks

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank Kriisten I'm very impatient to see the photos you did during the tour we did... all my best Jacques :)

Jacques is probably the best guide we have ever had in our many travels !!! He is one of the most entertaining and knowledgable guide around. He gets the Oscar for best Tour Guide !!!! We were 2 families and he had my daughter constantly asking him questions versus taking a yawn with other guides. We also had an excellent lunch with him and we would never use anyone else for any future tours in the region. He is the best !!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: bonjour Shelley , thank for your rating .; We had a great day all together !! your daughter is really nice and charming :) all was perfect ! I hope to see you again soon !!!!!!!!!!! Cordialement Jacques

Jacques proved to be very knowledgable and knew his way around the traffic. This however made for an extremely uncomfortable ride through many twists and turns. We did see a lot in the short amount of time we had. Because a member of our group was handicapped we requested no stairs and little walking. Jacques did a fairly good job at meeting our request.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: sorry for the turns but it was the only way to not spendindto much time in the august traffic very very important. You know .. we are living in a montaign and hills district I hope your friends and sister and group is well it was a pleasure for me to be with you jacques :)

Jacques was a great tour guide!!!! It was a miserable rainy day, but because of Jacques, our group had a wonderful time. He was flexible, knowledgeable, and accommodating. He told us all about the places we were visiting, and entertained us with lots of funny and interesting stories. I would definitely recommend Jacques as a tour guide -- he's a winner.

We had a great time with Jacques, saw lots of the Riviera in the limited time available and enjoyed his anecdotes. Only disappointment was not seeing the Palace and cathedral in Monaco,and lunch left too late to enjoy the intended restaurant.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: yes , I agree.. but as you saw; to go to the palace blocked by the police for a reception and the cathedral was close for works for its 100 years . really sorry for all these troubles.

Absolutely fabulous - Jacques found the common bond with us. Took us into places where we could not gone on our own. Told us lots of personal stories, relationships in Monaco and Nice and the Riviera. Extended the tour at no extra charge.

We had 2 wonderful days with the guide Jacques. He is a warm, fun and extremely engaging man who we thoroughly enjoyed. He took us to many wonderful spots, told us a wealth of facts and history, and our days with him were a highlight of your trip. My sons, ages 23 and 25 thought he was “the man!” I want to HIGHLY RECOMMEND him!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR THESE WONDERFUL DAYS WE SPENDED TOGETHER. IT 'LL BE A PLAISURE FOR ME TO GUIDE YOU ONE MORE DAY. CORDIALEMENT JACQUES

We had the immense pleasure of having a day on the french riviera with Jacques. He was tireless and with great knowledge of the past but also the present telling us what happened in an area hundreds years ago and yesterday. He does not only tell about the french riviera he lives it. Thank you Jacques for a perfect day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: DEAR DINA ; THANK YOU FOR YOUR COMMENT. IT WAS A REAL PLEASURE TO SPEND THIS DAY WITH YOU; YOUR FAMILY IS GREAT;KISS YOUR SON FOR ME. JACQUES

Our cruise stop in Cannes gave us just one day to see the French Riviera we chose to tour the area with Jacques and he did a great job of showing us the sights and entertaining us with his stories. We saw so much more than we could ever have seen on our own,and learned alot about the area history as well. Would absolutely recommend this tour for those looking to see it all but have limited time.
