My husband and I did a walking and wine chateau tour with Nathalie and we had a fabulous time!!!!!! Nathalie is so much fun, so energetic and so informative! Not only did she know all about the history of St and the under ground church, she also explained so many interesting details about the wine region! I highly highly recommend Nathalie! She is wonderful!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much to both of you for your comment and also for your interest in our heritage! I had a great time showing you around my favorite place, St Emilion! I hope we will meet again in the future...who knows where!!! Take care!

Nathalie is such a wonderful tour guide. She and our driver, Benjamin, made our day-trip to the Perigord region during our honeymoon perfect. We had such an amazing trip. Nathalie is so knowledgeable and sweet and she made sure to tailor the itinerary to our interests. Loved the places we stopped at, and all the sights we saw and learned about together. She even recommended us an amazing place for dinner, which we loved! Thank you so much Nathalie.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jenna, thank you so much for your kind words! I will transmit it to Benjamin!! Your interests in our history and culture made it easy for having a great day together! Take care! Nathalie

Outside of being a very friendly person, what impressed me the most about Nathalie is her knowledge of the St. Emilion wine business/processes and her persistence in staying in touch with me throughout the year or so prior to the tour. She clearly has an enthusiasm about the St. Emilion area. She filled our time together with valuable information and sights. I give her the highest marks.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Russ, thank you so much for your comment!! It's always very pleasant to read those kind words!!! I had a great time last thursday with the both of you showing you the beautiful place where I am living!!! See you very soon hopefully!!! Nathalie
Louise WebsterUnited States
Our St. Emilion tour exceeded our expectations. Nathalie was not only very knowledgeable, but fun and enthusiastic! My husband and I had been to St. Emilion on other occasions on our own, but this was a totally different experience and I would strongly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Louise! It has been a pleasure for me to spend this day in St Emilion! Hope to see you another time in the region! Kind regards, Nathalie

Nathalie was very professional and knowledgeable of the right bank of the Bordeaux region. She listened and adapted our tour to what we wanted to see but even better shared things that only a true local would know. Nathalie is absolutely the best!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Kathy for your comment! It's always a pleasure to share my region heritages with a group so friendly and curious of our way of life! Hope to see you again in the area or in Seattle one day! My kind regards to the 4 of you!

Oh My Goodness!! We cannot say how nice it was to spend time with Nathalie. We consider ourselves so fortunate to have been able to spend 3 days with her. She is such a pleasure to be with, so full of knowledge, so organized, so considerate.... we could go on and on! We both learned a ton on this trip about the area, the history and (of course) the wine. We will suggest Nathalie to all of our friends that are coming to the SW region of France. Thanks for everything, Nathalie !! - - Bruce & Joy
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bruce and Joy, thank you so much for this comment... Thank you for the trust you had in my propositions of tours and choices I made for you, so you will keep a great souvenir of your stay in my beautiful area! I am sure you are enjoying Dordogne and will enjoy the region of Angoulême! Have a great party at the wedding, sharing time with your beautiful daughters! Hope to hear from you soon... Kind regards, Nathalie

Nathalie is amazing! Knowledgeable, personable and plans every detail. We had a delightful day despite a little gig and rain. Our full day tour was exceptional.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Nancy for your comment! It was a pleasure for me to show you around my wine countryside and beautiful cobbled stones village! I hope you are enjoying your time in the Périgord with sun and warmth now!

Nathalie was consistently helpful and knowledgable. She was a delight to be with, and our tour of Bordeaux and the caves in the Dordogne was suberb. She brought maps as well as her own knowledge so that we would better understand. Her driver Benjamin was also great. We never needed to be concerned about our travels, and he also was most pleasant. We felt very lucky to be able to enjoy the services of these two lovely people. Many many thanks! Martie and Bob Sachs
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for this comment! Wishing you all the best! My kind regards to you and Bob!
Terrell AndersonUnited States
Nathalie was terrific. We were looking for an overview of St. Emilion and wines of Bordeaux and we got it with Nathalie as our guide. She was prompt, delightful to spend time with, and extremely knowledgeable of the area, architecture, and wine. Although we had booked bikes as part of the tour, it was a rainy day so she cancelled the bikes and applied that part of the fee to our lunch. Would I hire Nathalie again? Absolutely! Would I recommend her to others? Without hesitation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Terrell for this comment and rating! Wishing you all the best !!!

Nathalie's tour was great fun. We originally were scheduled to do a bike/wine tour, but the weather did not look like it would cooperate. Nathalie stayed in communication with us as the date approached and was very accommodating and flexible. Ultimately, we switched to a driving tour. Our stop at her family's vineyard was a highlight -- the wine was great!! Nathalie also guided us through the town of Saint-Emilion and was very generous with her time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Larry for your comment! I had a great time with you! You and Diane were my first Tours By Locals traveler! Hope you're doing well! Best regards, Nathalie
