Date: Oct 11/19

About 2 weeks before the tour, tried to totally change and minimize it saying HIS tour (as presented online) was too much to do. Ship was late, which was not his fault, BUT It was totally his choice to end the tour about 45 minutes early instead of maximizing every minute. No attempts to make things right, never went out of his way. Minimal "teaching us" along the way. Only guide in 3 stops to charge an extra price to rent a larger van. We were jipped, wouldn't recommend and wouldn't use again!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Kristen, I'm sorry but I asked you when to stop the tour and you agreed to return to Cannes early for the tender and also go to the beach. For the rest I agree it was my mistake to plan too much when you first contacted me, my apologies. It was also difficult to have people with walking issues which I should have asked before and plan the tour accordingly. Sorry about it !

Jean-Francois was a wonderful and knowledgeable guide! He wasn't overbearing with information or intrusive - he gave us the perfect amount of alone time to take in the amazing sites! I would highly recommend Jean-Francois and is well worth the investment!

Jean François really helped us to get off the beaten path and see some of the smaller, more quaint places outside of Cannes. This was one of my favorite parts of our entire trip, and a place that I hope to visit again. Thank you so much Jean François!

Jean-Francois was the perfect tour guide! He is relaxed and obliging and we had many good conversations about French and Canadian life as he took me to all the places I had requested. It was a perfect day and I would highly recommend him to friends or anyone who wants a private tour! I will contact him again if in southern France! Many thanks Jean-Francois!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm so glad you liked the tour. I also enjoyed this day with you, especially Curcuron and the movie setting. Many thanks
