A very fun day indeed! Unfortunately, we had to cut our tour short due to a change we made in our itinerary, but Thibault did a great job making the best of it. He was a great host and full of interesting information that made the tour all the more enjoyable. Highly recommend!!! Thank you, again, for a wonderful day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Very enjoyable tour with such a great team. Merci for your writing and I am looking forward to giving you as other fun tour next time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comment. You have been amazing traveller. Warm regards

Incredible!!! A group of 5 adults spent five full days discovering Provence with Thibault. We have spent many days with many TBL guides in many countries all of whom were very good but Thibault was definitely the best we have ever experienced. He was extremely friendly, courteous, timely, respectful of any time constraints or special requests with unsurpassed knowledge (history, culture, geography, politics, geology could not stump him on anything). If in Provence He is the best!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank for your very kind comment. I am glad the rest of your trip has been great. I enjoyed very much this week we spent together. Your friendliness and happiness made you a very special group for me. I hope we will have the chance to travel together again.
Great tour. Thibault was accommodating and found an activity for our children which made it special (Van Gogh light show).
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Daniel for your writing. Regards to you and yours lovely family.

Thanks to Thibault (Tim) for an awesome tour! Thank you for sharing/learning about the beautiful cities of Villefranche, Eze, Nice, Monte Carlo and Monaco! Our group thoroughly enjoyed the tour and time you spent with us and time we were given to enjoy each stop as well as the many photo opportunities! Fabulous guide and tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wonderful, It makes so happy to hear such a nice comment. Thank you so much and all the best to your lovely group. I am looking forward to be your guide on a TBL tour one more time.
Ron YonoverUnited States
A wonderful experience. Great guide and excellent driver. We had a very special day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your writing. Hope you had a great journey. Best regards
Good knowledge of the area. Felt we traveled too long on motorways. Perhaps a more rural tour in parts would have been good. Very considerate of our guest who had mobility issues. A very enjoyable day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Nadine for your writing. I hope I will have the chance to show you our beautiful countryside next time. A tour like "A day in Provence" focus on the countryside. Indeed the tour Marseille, cassis and Aix focus more on the cities side. So no country road in between big cities. Only the beautiful "route de la Gineste". Let me know next time you will be in Provence so we will do a countryside tour. It will give you a full vision of Provence. Kind regards

We had a great day with Thibault, our tour guide. He was well prepared with information on a variety of topics, and he was both interested in our priorities and skillful at adapting the tour to focus on what we would enjoy most. He was an agreeable companion, drove safely, and showed us everything promised for the tour. We recommend Tours by Locals and Thibault Martin to anyone who'd like to learn about the history and beauty of Provence without the headaches of driving and parking.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour Karen, Thank you for your comment. I am so glad you have spent a wonderful day. I love this job because I love people. Kind regards

Laurel SiemonUnited States
Thibault met us right outside of our ship with a sign for easy identification. He was very personable and showed us many beautiful sites on or way to Aix. Cezanne's studio was a favorite and a must see. Thibault shared information about his home town with us and even brought us to see his home. We got a little taste of what life is like living in this bustling Provincial town full of charm and history.
Ada LangUnited States
What a lovely day and Thibault was very accommodating. We fit a lot in for one day and left me wanting to come back for more. France is a lovely place and Thibault is the perfect guide to show it off. Thanks again Thibault for great tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour Ada, Thank you for your message. Indeed, we had an amazing day. It was a nice big sample of Provence. I will be very happy to show you more and the secrets spots too. I wish you a merry Christmas and lot's of joy for the new year.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your writing. We have spend a great time together and share a little bit our life during this day. This why I love my job. I will be so happy to be your guide again.
Elizabeth KeightleyUnited States
We were delighted with our guide, Thibault. He provided excellent context for what we would see and covered many aspects of the city of Aix-en-Provence, incorporating our requested interests of art, architecture, and history. The timing of the tour was perfect, and he provided a few little "extra" surprises, such as tucking in to the garden of his in-laws' home. I recommend him wholeheartedly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. It was so enjoyable to show you behind the walls.
Diane LukoffUnited States
Thibault was a wonderful guide!! Knowledgeable, accommodating and genuinely interested in getting to know his guests. We had a beautiful day that was full of interesting places and activities, but not rushed. We felt welcomed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour Diane, Thank you for your feed back. I wish you a merry Christmas and lot's of joy for the new year.
Marc FloodNaperville, IL, United States
Awesome tour and it was so personalized to the things we wanted to see, knowledgeable and so personable. We had our 7 year old daughter with us and it couldn't have been a better day for her and my wife and I. I would absolutely recommend for your tour of Marseille (which is beautiful by the way).
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your message Marc. It was very enjoyable to have you and your family in this trip, to make you discover Marseille and to share a nice lunch together. You are great Epicurians. Warm regards Thibault
Diana H.United States
Only a part of our group went with Thibault for the tour. We enjoyed a coffee first in Aix and then a walking tour of the town. Thibault was a attentive to our 11 year old, answering many questions. Then we were off to a winery for lunch and a wine tasting. We shorten the day some and was wise because of traffic and need to return to port in a timely manner.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bonjour, Thank you for your message. I am happy to have giving Alex the first step to become a good wine specialist. Kind regards Thibault
John FichterUnited States
Thibault is an articulate, knowledgeable, and very organized guide. He has a great deal of knowledge beyond the immediate tour you will take and has many suggestions to fill in the blanks of your stay in Provence. What we liked is that our tour was adjusted to what we were expressing during our journey. Look for Thibault and you will be handsomely rewarded!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you John for your comment. I will be so happy to make you discover more of our great Provence for your next trip. Best regards
Vicki GordonTempe, AZ, United States
Thibault embodies the traits I look for in a local guide. He is very knowledgeable about the area, has a depth of knowledge of history of the area, is punctual, very flexible and accommodating - and at the same time very funny and charming. This was my second private tour with him, and I have a third tour scheduled for my last day in Provence. I'm so glad Thibault was available when I was booking my tours because he is terrific!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Love You. See you in Texas Vicky. I will bring PROFITEROLES.... The girls give you a lot of SUGAR...
Sue J.United States
Thibault was wonderful. He is extremely knowledgeable. He was very responsive to our preferences throughout the day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your comment Sue. I am glad I have been able to show you a little of Marseille during this day. Hope the rest of your trip has been great. Kind Regards
He was a fantastic guide. We got him on our second day in Aix. He not only gave us the history of Aix but took us on back streets and pointed out local interests. He knew so many people in the streets and greeted them all with a smile. He took us to the Market and showed us the best places for lavender, olives, garlic, etc. After the tour, with a cup of coffee creme, he helped us plan our next few days as we traveled to Gordes. We highly recommend him, his english is impeccable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, Thank you Lawrence for your writing. Your team was a magic team. Hope you left some wine for the french :-))) Kind regards
Vicki GordonTempe, AZ, United States
Thibault was so cordial and accommodating, and wonderfully informative. He customized a half day tour of Marseille with three of us friends with lunch at an off-the-beaten-track restaurant that was fabulous. He then transported us to our rental house in Avignon and helped us get in and assured we were settled before he left us. We enjoyed Thibault so much, and we are very much looking forward to another tour we have booked with him next month.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Vicky. It was a wonderful day. I am looking forward to meeting you again. See you soon
Joyce CalvinUnited States
I never really wanted to visit Aix en Provence...now I want to live there! That is thank you to Thibault for making this day amazing! The market visit was wonderful and the lunch in Cassis made us feel French! Thibault was a wonderful guide and acted more like a family friend. Thank you for this truly special day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello, thank you for your kind writing. I am looking forward for being your guide one more time for your next trip in Provence. Kind regards
Susan F.Omaha, NE, United States
My family really enjoyed our tour with Thibault! He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and extremely flexible. He even suggested a couple of additional stops that he thought we might enjoy. If we are ever in the area again, we will definitely book another tour with Thibault.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Susan, Thank you for your writing. I had an excellent day with your family and I would be very happy to spend an other day with you and your family to show you more of this beautiful area. Kind regards
Jason KochUnited States
Thibault was a fantastic guide. He was very flexible and accommodating to the sites we wanted to see. He was patient with our teenage children and kept them engaged in the experience. The tour was a great way to see lots of Provence in a short time. I would strongly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for this lovely comment. It was a delight to share this day with you and your family.
Robert KeigherUnited States
Our three days with Thibault were delightful. He was extremely knowledgeable and gracious at all times. He understood what we were interested in and made sure that the places we visited were meaningful to us. Also he was very mindful of limitations my wife might have in walking and climbing stairs. I would have no hesitation in recommending him as an outstanding guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your writing Robert. It was a real pleasure to be your guide for these 3 days. I hope we will meet again in France or in California.
Richard LoveUnited States
Thibault is truly the professional guide! He is knowledgeable about all important historic subjects and really brought "life" to the tour. It could not have been better. Thanks so much. We highly recommend this guide to all visitors to Provence.

Andrea P.United States
Wonderful, educated, courteous, well-spoken multilingually gifted gentleman who provided a fabulous private tour in a luxury vehicle. I saw all I had requested, plus many extras, in superb comfort. Lunch was great - nice to tour with a guide who appreciates good food and knows where to find it in France! Would definitely tour with Thibault Martin again, with pleasure. He obviously loves his culture and country and is delighted to share it with his guests. I had a wonderful time on a beautiful day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Andrea, Thank you for your writing. It was so great to have you as a guest. You are a wonderful traveller. I really hope to meet you again. Regards Thibault
