Although we started off late (our fault) we had a wonderful fun filled day with Sandy. She was engaging and informative about her quaint little town (Aix de Provence) pointing out points of interest only a local would know. We had a lovely lunch by the sea in Cassis and because the weather was rainy, we passed on Les Castellet and went to a private wine tasting - it was incredible ! Sandy was great and we would recommend her to anyone visiting the area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much John! And don't worry about you being late, i'll still give you a good rating :) Sandy

Sandy was amazing! She made our trip to France unforgettable. She had great recommendations and even made a reservation at a picturesque cafe in a midivil town, it was one of our favorite places to eat and enjoy the scenery. She was very knowledgable and fun to talk with and hang out with. Our only regret is that we couldn't sneak her on board our cruise ship and have her for our whole trip. Loved her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, i always tell everyone i'm fabulous but no one believe me !!! I really appreciate your words, merci beaucoup. Sandy

Sandy is a knowledgeable and friendly guide. Everything on the day worked with precision from our pick up time to our tours. Sandy provided historical information coloured with various stories and legends. She was able to balance history and legend, show patience with poor drivers and ensure every aspect of the day was superb. I would highly recommend her as a guide for the avignon aix en Provence area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Catherine, it was a great day with you !

Sandy was a true pleasure! She is a terrific, knowledgeable and friendly guide. She has a real love for her job, which made the tour enjoyable for the whole group. Sandy is also happy to make lots of suggestions and to tailor the tour to the groups interest. Her vehicle is VERY comfortable, 8 of us fit very well, and the AC is great (we had a very hot day so this was really appreciated). I highly recommend Sandy’s tour!

Michelle KrounerUnited States
Sandy was such a pleasure as our guide. Not only was she knowledgeable but she was a joy to be be with. We loved our day in Aix En Provence, then onto Cassis where she booked us an amazing lunch on the beach. We ended our day at the cathedral and and just cannot say enough about her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Michelle, it was a very fun day with you all! Enjoy the rest of your cruise!
Our family loved this tour. Sandy is an excellent guide. She is warm, funny, and very knowledgeable about Provence. She was flexible and accommodated our itinerary desires. Sandy answered all of our questions with a lot of informative details both about the history of Provence and the present-day aspects of living in this beautiful area. Our tour had good variety: Aix-en-Provence walking tour and time in the market, lunch in Cassis, breath-taking views, and stops at 2 wineries. Thanks, Sandy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Dana, It was my pleasure to have you here. Sandy
Robert RussellUnited States
Sandy was terrific. We had a large group (7), most of whom wanted to shop, and she directed them to the market and then escorted those of us who wanted to see Aix through the streets. Her knowledge of, and passion for, her hometown of Aix was clearly evident. Highly recommend Sandy!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Robert !
Kelly P.United States
Sandy and the tour were both wonderful! Sadly, we had a rainy day but that certainly didn't dampen the tour! The villages that we saw were just lovely. If I'd go back-which I hope to do-I'd get Sandy again in a heartbeat. The whole family (husband and 3 teenagers) loved her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Kelly

Thank you Sandy for an awesome day sharing your beautiful cities - Aix En Provence - the walk through the city and the markets; Marseille spending time at the old port, delicious lunch recommendations and visiting Notre Dame de la Garde Basilica. We also enjoyed visiting Cassis - beautiful resort type city and beaches. Our group thoroughly enjoyed our time with you both and sharing your beautiful cities with us!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Sharon !

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Rebecca!

Sandy is nothing short of perfect. She is smart, affable, able to adjust the tour to fit your personal preferences and full of interesting information not available in any tour book or most likely by any other tour guide.

Just wanted to comment on my experience with ToursByLocals, and in particular Sandy. This was an amazing, top-notch tour. Sandy was friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and a great driver ( some of those roads were so narrow !) She picked us up exactly on time, coming down to the boat to meet us. Her commentary was so interesting and we learned so much. Her suggestions were perfect for us. I highly highly recommend Sandy and I would rate her the highest star rating I could. Thank you so much Sandy!

Tom SedgwickUnited States
Terrific guide, very knowledgeable! First stop Aix en Provence which happened to be her home town. We had a delightful walking tour. Next stop, Cassis where we took a boat tour of the Catalques. This is something we never would have found on our own. After lunch we had a view of the town and harbor from high up on the hill. Great photo opportunity. Last stop was the Basilica in Marseilles. Great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you Tom !
Jeff GowerLittleton, COLORADO, United States
Sandy was an exceptional guide with great knowledge of the area - she also had a creative "flair". We had the opportunity to arrange a picnic in the countryside that was truly memorable. Recommend Sandy 100% as a local guide.

We just finished our Afternoon with Sandy and it was really wonderful. Such a personable and cheery guide with so much Historical and Art knowledge to share. I came away with a real feeling for the rich legacy of art in Provence and so much historical background of the entire region. You have a real gem of a guide in this young woman.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Merci Franck, i'm very flattered by your words. I love my region; its history; its art, i'm glad you felft it. I must say that Provence has so much to offer that it helps a lot. Thank you. Sandy
Mark YohmanUnited States
We booked an 8 hour tour with Sandy from the port of Bandol France but due to high winds our ship did not dock in Bandol. Despite the fact we told Sandy at the last minute that we could not meet her in Bandol she agreed to meet us in Toulon the following day even though she had no obligation to and we did not have insurance. Extremely nice of Sandy to do so. Sandy was punctual, reliable, friendly and very informative - highly recommended. The tour was perfect for first time visitors to area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mark

Amanda NicewanderUnited States
We highly recommend Sandy. She is delightful, and we had a wonderful tour through the Luberon with her. She is a wealth of information and driving between towns we got lessons in agriculture, history, architecture, and local customs and traditions. She went out of her way to make it a special day for us. It was a tour we won't forget!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wahou thank you Amanda! Now i want To take a tour with Her !!!! ;) Sandy
Mike LorussoUnited States
Sandy was a very knowledgeable and informative guide on our tour but more impressive was her personable and passionate attitude during our trip through Provence. My family felt like we were visiting with a good friend who was happily showing us around in her home region. We prefer customized private tours and Sandy will gladly adjust the trip to meet your individual interest. If you are interested in a relaxing exploration of the food, wine, culture and history of Provence Sandy will be a great guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you :) It’s actually the way i like to work and i’m Really glad you felt it that way. I hope to see you again very soon ! Sandy
Deborah ReedUnited Kingdom
This tour was booked as part of my mothers 90th Birthday celebrations and WOW! what a great day out Sandy gave us! Minibus arrived in good time and we had a gentle running commentary all the way to Avignon. Photo stop by the bridge and a guided tour of Avignon with time for coffee and lunch (venues suggested by Sandy were spot on for our group needs). Onto a wine tasting and a scenic tour of the area, followed by a walk from the top of the village to the bottom. Would we use Sandy again? OH YES!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Merci ! It was a pleasure to have you and this area is so beautiful that it’s easy for me to talk about it :) Come back soon. Sandy
