We had a lovely day with Kathy in Marseille and Aix en Provence. Communication with Kathy was excellent and she met us at the appointed location and time. She planned a great day for us that started in Aix and then we toured Marseille. Kathy is very friendly, and has such an easygoing manner. It felt like we were spending the day with a friend. She also has a very thorough knowledge of the Provence region. Our group consisted of 3 teenagers and 3 adults and Kathy kept the attention of all ages.

We found Kathy to be friendly, accommodating and a well of knowledge in showing us around the city of Marseille and Aix-en-Provence. She has a passion for the area she now lives in and communicates that in a clear and concise way. Walking through the narrow streets of Aix-en-Provence was the highlight of the tour as she shared it's history as well as sampling the sweets and cookies of the local area. We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with Kathy and would recommend her highly.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Richard, for your kind words. Touring with such a sweet family is truly a pleasure!

We had a fabulous half-day tour with Kathy in Marseille. She's very knowledgeable and we covered a lot of ground on foot and by car in the few hours we had to spend ashore. Thanks Kathy!

The only day of our trip to Provence and Marsielles with lousy weather was the day we toured with Kathy. Pouring rain for our walking tour! However,the weather did not deter her from giving us a great tour,full of interesting facts and sites. She was cheerful and upbeat. She was willing to go on when we were tuckered out and wet. Great job Kathy and thanks so much.

Beyond fabulous. Kathy filled us with lots of history plus magnificent views. She'd has the patience of a saint and was very conscious of keeping us in the shade and out of the hot sun. Marseille can be overwhelming but Kathy helped us capture the essence of the city and culture.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words, Ron. It was a joy meeting you, your wife and friends!

As an 83 year old with a pacemaker, I was a little nervous about touring with my grandkids during a record heatwave--but my day along the coast of Provence worked out perfectly thanks to Kathy. She's a wonderful and knowledgeable guide to Provence.

Kathy was very informative and gave us a fantastic introduction to Marseille and its neighborhoods. Very flexible as we needed to change our meeting times for lost luggage by our inbound air carrier. I would refer Kathy to anyone looking to get an introduction into the history and culture of this dynamic, historical city. Saffer Family

Kathy helped design my day's schedule which included a boat ride in Cassis to see the Calangues and a walking tour of Old Marseille. The time was well spent and the beauty of the coast was enjoyed. I have a new appreciation for the city of Marseille, a hidden jewel on the Mediterranean sea.

Our tour with Kathy was absolutely wonderful! We spent our day in Aix-En-Provence and Cassis. Kathy knew so much history about every place she took us. Our taxi guide Frederick was great and dropped us off at every stop with Kathy and picked us up as soon as we were ready to go. The highlight of our trip! It was incredibly helpful having her show us around and since she's also an American, we didn't feel too out of place and were able to communicate well with her. Highly recommend this tour with Kathy!

Although my wife and I've been to France numerous times over the past 30 years, this was our first to Marseille. We've also used TBL number of times in Europe and in Asia so we knew that the caliber of guides weren't of question. Kathy certainly was terrific. Her knowledge of the city and the region is extensive. We also took an additional day trip to Aix. She is easy-going and really caters to your needs, pace and desires of what you want to see. Our highest rating! Thank you Kathy!

We spent an enjoyable, leisurely afternoon with Kathy as our guide in Cassis. We took a very scenic drive from our cruise port in Marseille to Cassis. Walked though the village, had a memorable lunch and then had fun shopping. Kathy took our cue as to what we wanted to solo and it was a lovely afternoon as we were winding down at the end of a 12 day cruise and this was a perfect ending.

Kathy was a delightful guide and went above and beyond to make our day special in Aix en Provence and Les Milles. She researched locations for us and made a trip to Les Milles to scout out the Camp Les Milles museum for us. If you have not heard of it, it is the only museum in the original site of a holocaust internment camp. Solemn and emotional. Kathy even showed us her favorite spot where Cezanne painted "his" mountain, over and over. Thanks for a wonderful day!
