Michel is a very fun guide who knows every side road and view possible. So many great photo sights and insights into the areas along the hill tops. Michel guided our little group for 2 days and each day was special. He picked us up at our port and delivered us back full of great stories, historical information and many smiles.

Richard WhannUnited States
Our tour was fabulous! Michel was a great guide - he has a wonderful personality and is very knowledgeable and accommodating. He took us to all of the places we wanted to visit. We particularly enjoyed our visits to the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild and Eze. Throughout the tour his commentary was insightful, informative and stimulating. The air conditioned van was very comfortable for our party of 7 people and allowed all of us to enjoy the beautiful scenery. I would recommend this tour highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Richard, when you book a tour with a guide the idea is of course to discover the region in a way you couldn't do on your own, i'm glad to see you enjoyed our day together.

Book any tour with Michel and you will have a fantastic time. It was raining & windy & we were unable to take the tender to the dock. Michel waited all day for us to be able to dock and we kept in touch the whole time. This did not dampen his spirit therefore did not dampen ours. He then took us on our whole tour. Saw Nice, Eze and Monaco. Excellent guide. He is very knowledgeable about the area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, i'm glad that despite the weather conditions you appreciated your time on the Riviera !

We had never used Tours by Locals prior to this tour. Michel was incredible. He was an expert on the region, gave constant commentary, showed a caring attitude for us and gave us the best tour ever. He certainly should be at the top of anyone's list for future tours. We cannot express our appreciation for the wonderful tour that we experienced. Michel should be given 6stars!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for that very nice comment...

Michel picked us up from the port at the end of our cruise and we toured Monaco, and Nice with stops in Eze and a few other historic seaside fortress villages with famous artist coming alive with his descriptions. He is truly a good guide and adjusts to what the group wants. He dropped us at our hotel after a tour of Nice and this made for an amazing day and end to our journey. I highly recommend Michel.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for trusting me with the program, I'm glad you enjoyed it... The secret is 3cheese", everything is about cheese and wine in France :-)
Noah (Dr.) ChivianWest Orange, NJ, United States
Our tour was a wonderful blend of the highlights Nice & Monaco led by Michel, guide par excellence. The Marche aux Fleurs Cours Saleya, Nice Flower market, was a photographer and food lover's delight. Our AM sight seeing was followed a "typical" lunch at Lou Bantry at the water. The scenic corniche road from Nice to Monaco was a sight to behold. Our time in Monte Carlo was spent sipping coffee plus people and exotic car watching at the Café de Paris table, adjacent to the be Monte Carlo casino.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Noah ! I see you took the time to think about your comments :-)) I’m glad you liked it, here all the places south the visit if you know how to see them. Thank you. Michel

Hey Michel- thanx for a great day We did the seven hour shore excursion from Monaco and loved it Michel is a great guide, drives well, is accommodating and flexible - we saw everything except Ese which we skipped because of my bad knee- a pity because I believe it is fabulous We also took in the Effuzi de Rothschild- lovely gardens Overall a great day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: many thanks for these nice words.
Our tour started in VilleFranch Sur Mer and included Nice ( old city) , St Paul De Vence and Eze. Michel was knowledgable ,engaging,personable,accomodating and most important was able to turn a dream from fantasy to reality. Our party of 4 included 2 avid photographers and Michel knew the ideal locations to capture stunning views and landscapes not included in cookie cutter tours.Our group unanimously agreed that Michel deserved a 6 out of 5 stars. we highly recommend Michel
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Henry, i don't know what to say... even if i also think I'm fantastic :))) Thanks again and I'm happy you enjoyed the region.

We scheduled an 8 hour tour with Michel, who is a National Licensed Tour Guide and Lecturer. We found him to be friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. We visited Saint-Paul, Nice, had photo ops at Mont Boron, drove through Corniches of the Riviera, visited Eze, drove through La Turbie, visited Monaco, Monte-Carlo; drove the F1 GP track and drove through Fontvieille. We had time to take photos, shop and had lunch in a very good restaurant in Nice. Would highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this nice comment... i could have write it myself ! :)
