Romain was great. He knew his stuff, and showed us interesting artefacts that we would never have spotted. His English was good, he took his time and we were not rushed. The pace was good for all 6 of us. Although we booked 3 hours, Romain was happy to extend the tour. Romain knew La Rochelle. We would all highly recommend him.

My family and I were very pleased by the tour Romain provided us within the city of La Rochelle. We were visiting b/c it was where our family ancestors left France for Nouvelle France back in the 1660s. Between the time I committed to the tour with Romain, he did research on his own, and this research, helped augment and personalize our tour. We would definitely recommend Romain to others looking for a local tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for this nice review, I am glad that your family appreciated your personalized city tour. it is always great to extend my knowledge of La Rochelle history with visitors help!
Our experience of the tour was great. The tour guide assigned, Romain, was very nice and taught us very interesting details of this magnificent city. We were a group of 10 people, with two old ladies and Romain could adapt the visit so that they were able to follow the group.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Asier for your nice review. I was happy to introduce you in Spanish to La Rochelle history respecting the needs of each member of your group. I am glad that everyboy enjoyed the tour!
Romain est perspicace et très sympa. J'ai bien compris l'histoire de la Rochelle. C'est une chance que je l'aie rencontré!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Je vous remercie pour la gentillesse de votre commentaire! Je suis ravi que notre balade historique vous ait été agréable . Je vous souhaite un excellent séjour en France. Romain
The main thing that impressed us was that Romain was very responsive to our needs; he modified the tour as we requested, "on the fly". Very pleasant, knowledgeable; good mix of history, architecture, and anecdotes. Romain is responsible; he kept in touch with us by email to make sure we started our tour right on time. We highly recommend Romain as a guide to La Rochelle.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your nice review! I was glad to add few changes in order that the tour could suits your needs and let you enjoy La Rochelle your way. All the best, Romain
What a wonderful experience. There are not enough superlatives to describe the historical tour guided by Romain. Romain has structured the tour so that you are guided through a historical timeline of La Rochelle. His commentary was always interesting and informative. He obviously has a deep knowledge of the history of La Rochelle and its architecture. If you are able to take this tour you should do so without hestitation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your review! I'm glad you enjoyed La Rochelle legacy through the tour we took. Have a nice stay in La Rochelle!
Excellent tour ... excellent tour guide ... couldn't ask for anything better to visit La Rochelle in just 2 hrs! Detailed and informative explanation of all the important and interesting places. Would have missed on a lot of landmarks if we did the walking tour of La Rochelle on our own. Thanks Romain :)

Romain was an excellent guide and I would highly recommend him. I was the organiser of a small group travelling to La Rochelle and Romain was happy to tailor a tour to meet our needs, he gave us a really interesting walking tour of the city with plenty of history and local interest stories. He has a warm and friendly style and was only too pleased to give us advice about what to do and where to go during our short stay. We couldn't have asked for a better guide, thank you Romain.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot Russel! It was really nice to welcome you and your friends in La Rochelle, I'm glad to read that you enjoyed your time and your tour. I wish you the best!
