Pierre gave me the best tour I think I have had. He surprised me with what he showed me and told me stories of history. His driving on the windy mountain roads was expertly and carefully done as he gave me history and geological lessons. He seemed to know what I wanted and gave it to me with honesty and care.
Kathy HeffronUnited States
Pierre was wonderful. His knowledge of the area plus all the little interesting facts about celebrities etc was superb. This area of the Riviera is fabulous and Pierre captured every bit of it for us. He was very flexible and charming. Highly recommended tour and guide!
Ruth Ann TysonHilton Head, SC, United States
Pierre is the guy to show you France! He is a true Historian of French history. We drove in a nice van around Monte Carlo and the surrounding villages. I really loved Nice. The French Riviera is beautiful and Pierre knows all the stops and sites that are important to see.
Irene EffUnited States
Our group of 8 people hired Pierre as a guide through Cannes, Nice, village of Eze, Monaco, and Monte Carlo. We could not be happier. It did not seem to matter which direction we threw the conversation that Pierre did not know the subject both deep and wide. Add in his entertaining stories and jokes along with Pierre's information and the day just merrily slips on by. Be sure to ask Pierre his "ABC" joke. You won't be disappointed. Great guide. Wonderful tour. Beautiful sites.
Mary NeesUnited States
Pierre was an efficient driver, flexible with our ideas, and wonderfully conversant about European history, politics and religion as we viewed Cote D'Azure from his van. We quickly walked the flower market in Nice, grabbed pizzas in Eze, then sat on an amazing perch above Monaco to take it all in. He helped us see some charming villages briefly, and then whisked us back to our ship in just enough time.

Jonathan SeidelAtlanta, GA, United States
This was our 2nd tour with Pierre. We had a fantastic experience as we wanted to do a custom tour designed to visit places in & around Nice with my father who lived there as a child during & after WWII. I would highly recommend Pierre and his company!!
Nancy FosterUnited States
Pierre was amazing. He was so knowledgeable and showed us places that we could have never imagined. We had a group of 8 people from our family and he was very flexible with showing us sites that each one wanted to see. He was extremely conscientious and made sure we got back to our ship with plenty of time to board. We thoroughly enjoyed his company and he was well spoken and fluent with the Engiish language. To sum up - Pierre was excellent and well deserving a 5 star rating

We would all recommend him highly!
Nagamani NadellaUnited States
Linda K.United States
What a great day! Pierre is one of the best tour guides we've ever engaged. He is charming and funny and has a deep knowledge of the history of the area. We are not huge history buffs but he made it come alive and we were fascinated to hear the stories. He took us to many out of the way places with spectacular views, or points of special interest-away from the crowds and commercialism. He did a great job of telling us what we needed to know, but gave us time to explore on our own. A perfect day!
Robert EkedahlBoise, ID, United States
Pierre was SUPER. Informed, efficient, open, professional, friendly and comfortable to be wth. Overall just s nice guy. We've used well over a dozen Tours-by-locals guides and Pierre was the very best. If you get a chance to use him, grab it.
Fredric WhearyUnited States
Pierre was a pleasure to be with and tour with. We had a special tour requirement and he designed a custom tour that fit our needs exactly. The day was wonderful and we would recommend Pierre to anyone seeking a highly personable, knowledgeable and excellent guide.
Kenneth MillerUnited States
We had been to area before, but Pierre took us to new sites and vistas which were magnificent. He chose a restaurant on the beach where we were so close to the water from our table, I could have dipped my foot in the Med. His abundant knowledge ranged from a discussion of lack of tides in the Mediterranan Sea to the geologic history of French Riviera. A remarkable guide and an excellent tour!
Karla D.Asheville, NC, United States
Our family of six (ages 9 to 79!) had a fantastic day with Pierre. He knew just where to get the best views and find the perfect lunch, too. We especially enjoyed the perfume workshop and the beautiful little art village he recommended. Great, great fun! Pierre has a wonderful sense of fun and adventure. We laughed a lot!
Hunter McfaddenUnited States
Very knowledgeable and helpful
Gina WilsonUnited States
We had a wonderful time with Pierre. Our only regret is not being able to spend more time in this beautiful place. We highly recommend his tour!
Pierre found us and picked us up on time from our ship amidst the chaos of a F1 Grand Prix about to close down Monte Carlo. We was flexible and gave us the tour we requested and was most helpful and knowledgeable. At the end of our tour he went out of his way and drove us into Italy to the next rail station when our train coming from France was affected by a strike.
Margie DennerUnited States
We were very Impreesed with Pierre. He was very professional and knowledgeable. He was a very courteous driver and our overall experience was exceptional! Thanks so much.
Julie FedorenkoUnited States
Excellent! I wish I could give Pierre more than 5 stars. My family of 7 were on a cruise, instead of booking with the cruise line we choose to book a private tour. Pierre was prompt, professional, knowledgeable, humorous and a true delight. He was flexible and his English was superb. He was a true gift on our cruise. I highly recommend Pierre.
Samuel NordUnited States
We were completely satisfied with the tour services provided by Pierre, and we recommend them to others without reservation.
Margaret BradburnUnited States
Our group of 8 had a wonderful day of touring the area around Nice with Pierre and William. We used two vans which were very clean and comfortable. Pierre made the day special with his knowledge of the history of the towns and his lively sense of humor. We recommend Pierre highly!
Margaret BradburnUnited States
Our group of 8 had a wonderful tour of Eze and Monaco with Pierre. We were driven in two vans which were clean and comfortable. Pierre is very knowledgable and has a great sense of humor. We highly recommend him!
Michael WilliamsUnited States
Pierre is a wonderful local Frenchman who speaks English well and knows how to listen to his customers and tailor the tour to there tastes. This is a pricey tour but Pierre gave us the royal treatment. He recommended an incredible lunch and flexed on time to maximize getting us to see what we wanted.
Lee ButterfieldUnited States
Wow! Spending a day on the French Riviera with Pierre was a highlight of my 12 day cruise. Pierre speaks English like a native, is incredibly interesting to talk to; when we drove from Monaco to Nice, he knew all these great, secret places to stop for panoramic views. Best of all, he's a licensed tour guide, which meant that when we went to the Chagall Museum in Nice, he could escort us inside and give us a full-on tour, just as if he was a docent there.
Paul McClellanUnited States
Pierre was great. 5 stars. He helped us every step of the way.
Cecil FarrisMurray, KENTUCKY (KY), United States
We enjoyed our tour with Pierre very much.
Tabitha BrandSouth Africa

Theresa SheffieldUnited States
We had an amazing time with Pierre. He really makes the tour feel custom and goes our of his way to ensure that you see more than just the "tourist" spots.
Jeffrey SchmidtUnited States
Excellent "tailor made tour". Pierre was a wealth of knowledge and information. It really makes a difference to know the history of the places that we are seeing. He was agreeable to do anything we asked. His Mercedes van and driving were wonderful. His English was excellent and extensive. We would highly recommend Pierre to others!
Mark McLarnonUnited States
Pierre met our cruise ship in a very nice van that was able to accommodate our family of five. He knew we wanted to see a lot on a limited time basis, and somehow he was able to give a memorable day seeing more than we dreamed possible. He has a lot of scenic vistas that were not swarmed by tourists. He was very polite and informative, and was excellent with all ages in our group, including the teenagers. Our tour exceeded our highest expectations.
Linnane HaleyUnited States
Pierre was a wonderful guide. I had a conflict and couldn't entertain my houseguest. Pierre came and showed him an amazing time and showed him so many things I didn't know about. Now I am going to take a tour with Pierre of my own home town area to learn and see and do all that my guest experienced with Pierre. Pierre began with an open friendliness and enthusiasm for my needs even before the day of the tour. He emailed me with suggestions and questions about what would best please my guest. 10/10!
Richard SiehlUnited States
Pierre was a terrific guide: courteous, flexible, responsive and very knowledgeable. Very good English and a fine sense of humor. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and would highly recommend him.
William CondonSouth Dennis, MA, United States
Both of our tours with Pierre were customized as we wanted to spend tim in Eze on the second day. Eze overlooks Monaco and the drive to and from was spectacular. Lunch in Eze was special as the restaurant looked out over the city from a great height. We drove to the highest point and enjoyed a spectacular view of the coast, city and our ship.
William CondonSouth Dennis, MA, United States
St. Paul de Vence was one of the highlights of the trip for us. We had been there many years ago and to return was quite wonderful. We had a lovely lunch in one of the sidewalk cafe's and enjoyed the beauty of the French countrside. Pierre is very nice, his tours could benefit from sound amplification in his van.
John F.ipswich, MA, United States
We engaged Pierre for an eight hour tour of Monaco and several museums on the outskirts of Nice. He is very professional and well versed in the history, politics and cultural sites of Nice and its environs. We recommend Pierre without reservation.
Robert CarnevaleUnited States
Pierre did a very good job. He was punctual. He provided good transportation in a comfortable, well maintained van. He was personable, knowledgeable, and friendly. He covered more than we could have expected. He could have provided more commentary. We would use him again and recommend him to friends. Good job.
Robert CarnevaleUnited States
Please see the commentary on the rating for the tour on the previous day. It is the same.
Tracy ChangUnited States
Howard ChinToronto, ONT, Canada
Although Monaco is a very small city, Pierre knows where all the secret spots are.With our small group of 6 he took us to places not accessible by larger tour buses. Very knowledgeble aout the history of this exciting city.
David WendUnited States
The tour of the Cote d'Azur that I arranged with Pierre was fabulous. My wife and I were picked up on time and Pierre took up to a marvelous vantage point, overlooking the village of Eze. Pierre conducted personal tours of the Villa Santo Sospri and the Rothschild villa on Cap Ferrat. He provided us with excellent details about the places we visited. I would arrange a similar tour with Pierre in the future.
David ParsonsUnited States
Wonderful tour with Pierre. He took us to spectacular places that other tours would miss. Especially enjoyed the cliff side overview of Monaco.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David! Manythanks! But shuuut it is a secret! Have a nice end of cruise! Warmest regards Pierre
Barbara DroskoskiUnited States
Wonderful! Pierre provided an informative and worthwhile tour. We stopped for a wine and cheese break overlooking Monacao. His van was roomy and all four of us thoroughly enjoyed the full day experience!
Clare S.United States
Pierre was terrific and we had a fabulous time with him. When we suggested wanting to go to St Paul de Vence, which was not part of the original itinerary, he was very flexible and most willing to take us there. He chose a delightful place for lunch in the town. We spent 8 hours on his tour and delighted in every minute of the tour. Pierre was most personable, friendly and we was so enjoyable to spend the day with. We would highly recommend him and would request him again if we were to come back to Monoco
Billye MueckeUnited States
Pierre was very friendly, very knowledgable and very nice. We enjoyed our tour very much. We would recommend him highly.
Stephanie GiacopelliUnited States
We had a lovely day with Pierre. Our shipped docked at VilleFranche instead of Monaco but Pierre had no problem meeting us there instead. We then drove to Cannes even though it was during the film festival and traffic was very heavy and then to Monaco and Monte Carlo where they we setting up for the grand prix the next day. Pierre was extremely accommodating and good humored,putting up with heavy traffic, crowds and no parking so we could see the things that were important to us. Thank you
Robert StovallUnited States
Pierre was great! He first took us to a mountain-top vista for a magnificent view of southeastern France, then on to Èze. Èze is a VERY charming town, not to be missed, where we wandered on our own (didn't need Pierre for this). From there we visited Nice where he guided us through beautiful & interesting parts of a marketplace & old town. For lunch he directed us to a quaint sidewalk cafe. From Nice we returned to Monaco/Monte Carlo. Great tour, great guide.

Irwin C.United States
Pierre was timely, friendly and an encyclopedia of knowledge on the French Riviera. He tailored our tour as we requested and was very receptive to changes we would suggest as we were proceeding. When we suggested a couple of unexpected changes he made sure to make it happen. When we unexpectedly added the Chagall Museum to our tour he escorted us and thoroughly knew and described the background of each piece of art. His vehicle was clean and comfortable. We highly recommend Pierre
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Irwin, Thanks for your kind comments! I am pleased that you had good time on the Riviera! Hoping next time will be longer! A bientot Pierre

George BagdonUnited States
Pierre gave us two tours, one in the Riviera and the other in St. Tropez. He was very nice but we hoped he would have more details on the cities we visited. His energy level seemed a little low. He has a good command of English.
George BagdonUnited States
Please refer to my comments on the St. Tropez tour with him.
Pierre was a fantastic guide. He was on time and very professional, funny and definately very knowledgeable on the region. I felt very comfortable with the day tour and would highly recommend him for future tours. It was our pleasure to spend the day with him.
Jean GashHouston, TX, United States
Pierre was terrific in giving us a tour of Monaco and the French Riviera. The scenery was stunning and Pierre's description of the Riviera and its history was excellent.

Alan MandellWELLINGTON, FLORIDA, United States
Pierre was a competent guide and driver. If you have more than four people, we had six, his voice is not heard in the back of the vehicle and he does not talk loud enough for all of the passengers to hear his comments. However, once at a destination he was helpful and made sure we saw the necessary sights in a timely manner.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nancy, I know that it is difficult to hear from the back seats, when air conditionning is working. I will set a microphone this winter in the van, I promised! Thanks for your comments Best regards Pierre
Pierre was amazing!!...his knowledge of history as well as points of interest was excellent...great personality and command of the english language.....vehicle was wonderful and always filled with water for those hot summer days...we will certainly recommend to others and have his business card for the future!!!

Great tour. Very friendly. Water in car for all passengers. One suggestion: need to speak to all members while in car Not just front passenger. Difficult to hear in the back....maybe a pa system! all in all I would rebook!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Maureen! Thank your for the feed back! I promise next time I'll take a bear's voice! I know that sometimes it is difficult to hear in the back. I will think about it and try to find a micro system... Take care... Pierre
