John Paul MacdonaldSaint Hubert, QUEBEC, Canada
Sophie organized a tour covering Roman times, present-day France and (the best part) wine! We saw some of the most beautiful Provence wine villages and classical sites. Sophie is extremely knowledgeable in ancient and contemporary history and conveys such in an instructive yet easy-going manner. She also knows wines and gave excellent commentary on what we were tasting. She has a great sense of humour and lots of colourful anecdotes. She also helped us in our solo visits to Aix and Avignon. Merci, Sophie!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!! I had such a fun time with you too!
Anne HabeckUnited States
Sophie is delightful, personable and knowledgeable. Our trip to the food Halle with her was terrific as was the walk through old town and our visit to the Pont d'Avignon. Helped steer us as to other things to see and so in town.

Sophie made us get the most of our day in Chateauneuf-du-Pape. She know so much about the area and the wine. In addition, her English is perfect and she is very educated in history. She has a lot of energy and love for food, wine and the area. We give her our highest rating and will call on her again when in the South of France.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much Melissa and Ed! It was a real pleasure for me to have you both. Don’t hesitate to get back

Sophie is a knowledgeable guide who provided a thorough picture of Avignon in our half day tour. Whether it was illuminating the history of the papal residents, or demystifying the origin of the nursery rhyme about Pont d'Avignon, Sophie pleasantly shared the rich history, geography, architecture and culture of the city. She introduced us to various neighborhoods, preparing us for further explorations when our tour was ended. We would highly recommend Sophie to anyone seeking to learn more about France.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Nancy and Walter! It was a pleasure to guide you.

Richard LoveUnited States
Sophie is the perfect guide for Avignon. She is extremely knowledgeable and gave us the perfect tour of Avignon. Highly recommend her to all visitors who want to learn the history at the perfect pace. Thanks
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Marguerite and Richard! You were perfect as well, with endless curiosity and thirst for culture and history. Just one regret though, not enough time together to share another passion: Châteauneuf-du-Pape wines ;-)
We loved the relaxed easy going yet very informative nature Sophie provided. The wineries she chose for us to visit were very welcoming and served us fine wines which we enjoyed sampling. We would highly recommend this tour with Sophie.
Bambi FeinbergUnited States
Belated reply, but no less deserving! Sophie tour was 5 Stars! She provided us with the greatest day of sites and the best lunch of our 14 day trip! Les Demoiselles Dupuy. The most amazing, freshest, bbq'd mussles! The Feinbergs!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Bambi! Thanks! Hope you’re getting fine

Erin MeitzlerUnited States
Sophie was the perfect tour guide. She has a wealth of information on the area and a passion for what she does. She did a perfect job of incorporating the history with the modern. Not only was her tour informative for the history enthusiasts in our group, but her experience and knowledge of the local viniculture is vast and she put together a wonderful tasting for us too. She met every one of our requests. Whether your interest is history or wine, she is the expert to call upon.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wow what a rating! Thank you Erin. But it was a pleasure for me too to have you: your curiosity and interest in everything was mostly motivating.
