Michel was such a wonderful guide. He took us to the non-tourist part of St. Tropez/France. What made each of the locations so wonderful was his knowledge of the little things that made up a village or castle. Could not have asked for a better companion to spend the day with in St. Tropez. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for those nice words !! I hope you enjoyed the idea to see the E Grand Prix like i suggested, up to the moment you realized that it was on the day before !!! Sorry... my mistake :) But hey you had the dream for few hours ! It was cool to have you here, thanks, if you know how to visit Saint Tropez it’s a fantastic place. Best regards, Michel
Michel is a wonderful tour guide. We were treated to beautiful sites taking less traveled routes, and so avoiding a lot of congested areas. Michel is extremely knowledgeable, personable and organized. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Jennifer. I’m glad you enjoyed discovering the area of Saint-Tropez by the secret roads, so much more enjoyable than the usual touristy itineraries. Best regards, Michel

Michel was amazing! Who has ever had a tour guide buy them a bottle of wine? We had a great tour of St Tropez and Provence. He set up wine tours for us and picked a great place for lunch. His car was a super clean van and he made our day exceptional. His knowledge of the area was great and his English was perfect. he made our day super fun and I would encourage all readers to give him serious consideration.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Stephen, i have 2 techniques to get good feedback : blackmailing or bribing my guests with a bottle of wine !!! :-) Thank you very much for a very enjoyable day. Michel
Our day with Michel could not have been more perfect! He provided a wonderful balance between historical, current and just interesting information about St. Tropez. We thoroughly enjoyed his company for the day and were thrilled with how accommodating he was of the things we wanted to do and the changes we needed to make when our cruise times were adjusted at the last minute. We will absolutely plan to tour with him the next time we are in the area!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Merci Christine, that day with you was especially enjoyable...
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David, love your comment ! :) I hope you had the possibility to recover after the evening parties of Saint Tropez :)

Michel is a great guide. He's extremely knowledgeable, energetic and humorous. We visited Gassin, Cogolin, Grimaud and thoroughly enjoyed the day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, despite the weather the area of Saint-Tropez is always gorgeous when you discover it off the beaten path. It was a pleasure to have you, than you very much.

Michel is the guide extraordinaire! We had him for two days and he advised us about a third, even though he was not available. He is funny, flexible and very knowledgeable. He made the day very exciting and we enjoyed a fun French picnic and a winery stop, that we loved. He made sure we saw everything and we could pick how long we stayed to shop etc. Very enjoyable day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My tour of Saint-Tropez is off the beaten tracks. I choose the greatest sites not the easiest ones and that makes the difference. It was a cool moment, thanks...

Michel is tht best of the best. Fantastic guide, one of the best we have ever used in 3 years of using tours by locals. Very Knowledgeable, very personable. Fun to be with and organized an excellent tour. Cpould not have had any better experience than with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Allan and thanks for an excellent restaurant! I love the program of this tour... The most important is that you remember that we make in France, in any other place it's called a beverage ! :)

Michel has been doing this for more than 20 years and one of the most knowledgeable tour guides we have experienced. He loves to talk and you will never be bored. He knows where to go to avoid "tourist" traps and experience the best of the region. Very efficient large van with WIFI. Plan at least 6 hours per day for each region.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: many thanks for these nice words .

Michel has been doing private tours for more than 20 years and is an expert on the region. He took us to really cool villages the average guide would not go to and knows the secret roads to avoid traffic. Very knowledgeable in all areas from history to plants to clock towers. You will also learn why there are plants on the little streets in the villages. Extra large van with WIFI. You can't go wrong with Michel.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you ! Next time i will tell you everything about the secrets of the clock towers !!! ;)

We were glad we didn't just explore oppulent St Tropez but also experienced the lovely hilltop towns of Bormes-les-Mimosa, Grimaud, and Gassin. Michel provided a wealth of information on history, daily life, and of course food & wine opportunities all with a good sense of humor. Both communication and accommodation to our itinerary were excellent in the planning stages. A comfortable Mercedes van with a/c to travel in and not having to worry about driving/parking etc made for an enjoyable day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thnks, and remember THAT bell never rings ! :-)
