    What an incredible day with such an amazing, friend, and informative guide! He took us everywhere and before we arrived would tell us interesting information about the place. We were 1 American (me), 2 French, 2 German, and 3 Spanish, and he navigated all of us perfectly--he translated everything into 3 languages...I bet he was exhausted by the end of the day. He was really helpful and kind. I think my favorite was Eze and the perfume factory because I wasn't expecting to like the perfume factory as much as I did, and Eze is simply magical. He gives you time to explore each place on your own, and I definitely recommend going to the Jardin Exotique in Eze. Monaco was also thrilling, as were all the views along the way. On top of everything, he is an outstanding driver!!! I wish I could have stayed longer to go on more tours with him!

    As a solo female traveler - I wanted a private and high quality tour - this tour fit the bill. The Citroen was beautiful and got a lot of attention - it was fun to get waves and smiles from everyone we passed. Phillipe was very knowledgeable of the area and had a great itinerary. He communicated several times before the tour to make sure the time/itinerary was ok. I got the feeling he would be flexible with the itinerary/time which was good. Phillipe had arranged a tour for me at Fragronard Maisson in English. The tour was wonderful and I learnt a lot about perfume and got to see the production line in action. After the tour we took the mountain roads to Gourdon which was really pretty.In Gourdon - Phillipe gave me a tour of the medieval town and told me about the area and history. I really enjoyed the uniqueness of the tour and I’m so glad I did it. Phillipe was very knowledgeable and friendly. I felt right at home with him and enjoyed riding around in style. This is a must do tour!
