Having Anna as the guide-driver saved time and missteps in touring Arles, Nimes, and the Pont du Gard. We were able to cover all three locations in a day (about 8 hours) which would not have been possible without her insights and knowledge of the region and cities. Anna is a talented young business professional who has a world-perspective but adapts her local knowledge to make the trip informative, entertaining, and worthwhile.

Excellent guide with firsthand knowledge of the region and culture. Well-times tour of Arles to understand VanGogh's work throughout the city and its influence on his art; a major motion picture was just released in Dec 2018.

We could be more please with Anya as our tour guide. She on time, pleasant to be around, very knowledgeable and spoke English perfectly. There wasn't one question she could not answer. We had Anaya 2 consecutive days.... both in Nimes and Avignon. Both days were near 100 degrees so it was challenging but Anya kept us going! I would highly recommend her for local tours in this area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your warmest feedback! I spent very pleasant time with you family. Enjoy the rest of you holidays!
Anna KoganUnited States
This was a great, informative, fun and very interesting tour. Anna make it an engaging and interesting experience both for the adults and our 2 little kids. This tour with Anna is a MUST if visiting this region of France.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much, Anna! It was my pleasure to show Arles to your family. And thanks for recommending me to your friends, I was very happy to find out that one of my clients who booked my tour at ToursbyLocals due to your recommendation. I hope to see you soon in Provence!
Anna is very knowledgeable, good social skills and interact great with people + speaks a perfect english - 5 stars for sure. As a "gourmet tour" it fails. In our 3 hour tour we only had our first serving after more than 1 hour (we were starving). The first serving was a huge collection of cheese, ham and paté where we only ate half of it. There should be more stops with specialities plus at least one stop where we could sit down and eat+drink. I am the owner of * and have been on 10+ foodtours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm really sorry to hear my gourmet tour didn't quite meet your expectations.I recall we visited 10 food stores (6 inside the market & 4- outside) and tasted more that 20 local specialties. One of stalls was left off as per your preference regarding shellfish.I asked you if you'd prefer to start with Avignon's highlights with your approval. I appreciate all the feedback that you have provided, as I am always eager to improve the quality of my tours. I hope to welcome you back to Avignon.

Our tour was wonderful. Anna was lovely and very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Marseille. She knew all the answers to our inquiries and tailored her tour to match our interests as she got to know us. There was definitely a LOT of walking, including stairs and hills, but worth the views and information we got. Anna planned her stops well so that we could rest in the shade and that older members of our group did not overexert in the heat. I would definitely book with her again!
Lynn MaherUnited States
Anna was a delightful tour guide. She has excellent command of English and is very knowledgeable about Marseilles. Good communication and flexibility prior to the tour, and despite road closures due to activities in the city and "la Mistral" being very active, she managed to provide us with a very thorough exposure to the city and the shoreline. What's more, she very kindly adjusted the pace as needed. I would confidently and enthusiastically recommend Anya as a guide for Marseilles.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for much Lynn for your kindest feedback! It was a pleasure to guide you in Marseille. All the best!

William WaddillUnited States
Anya was terrific! My wife and 2 college aged daughters took the 2 hour tour of Avignon. Anya couldn't have been nicer, and she had thorough knowledge of Avignon and regional history. We loved Avignon - Anya showed us some great parts of the city we likely would not have found on our own. She also shared a lot of history, & gave us recommendations of other things to do in Avignon and the region. We would definitely recommend her and use her services again next time we're in the area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks William for such a kind words! It was a real pleasure to show you and your family Avignon.
Peter BurlowUnited Kingdom
Anna is a very nice Russian Lady, who speaks perfect English and has a good deal of knowledge about France and its food. We had a good walk around the town, then stopped in some food shops and sampled some local seafood and cheese.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks, Peter! I am really glad that you enjoy your time in Sete and I wish you a wonderful holidays!)
Dennis AllendorfUnited States
Scheduled for 1:00PM, but we would be late; called Anya who gladly met us at 2:00PM. I was probably unclear in my request of not doing a city tour (which we were doing the next day), but seeing The Camargue. The City Tour was as expected.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Dennis, I was happy to work with your group! I usually try to adjust to my clients requests as much as possible even when they ask me to change or add something during the tour but in this case the tour you've ordered is 2 h walking tour of Arles city and as stated in the description no private transportation included. Camargue visit requires the preordered private van and minimum half a day visit so these adjustments need at least a couple of hours prior notice.I wish you a wonderful trip
Anna gave our group of 8 (4 adults and 4 kids) a fantastic tour of Arles. Anna is very knowledgeable. She is kind, patient and delightful. She shared stores of Arles, Provence, Van Gogh in much detail. She walked us thru the Arles market and helped translate when we couldn't resist the regional delights. We would definitely recommend touring with Anna!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for your kind review, I was delighted to spend time with your wonderful and friendly group and guide you around Arles!
