My husband and I enjoyed a tour from Ajaccio to Bonifacio in early June. As two Americans in Corsica, we booked with Authentic Tours because it was the top-ranked activity on TripAdvisor, and the other reviews said the tour guide spoke English well. Xavier did not disappoint! He made our day very special. He picked us up near our apartment,... More

6 ladies from Norway were ready for a full day tour out of Ajaccio. We booked a tour with Authentic Tour to Bonifacio; started early in the morning for a wonderful drive south through beautiful forests. We had a nice stop in Sartene which is a very charming old place with its old town and the church. On arriving Bonifacio,... More

We were collected from our hotel on time - a few minutes early infact- the mini bus was extremely comfortable and clean. Xavier is very knowledgeable and funny. We left Ajaccio and headed Bonifacio. This trip runs like clockwork but at no time did we feel rushed. We stopped in Sartene to visit the church and have coffee. We then... More

Xavier picked us up at our hotel in Particcio at 7 a.m. in his airconditoned and comfatrable VW van. After picking up another couple our group of 7 was ready to roll to Calvi to be awed and jaw-dropped by increadable beauty of Corsica west coast. It's quite a winding, narrow and hugging cliffs road, but Xavier made it look... More

We arrived jet-lagged and in need of someone to hand us a perfect adventure. Through TA, we found Xavier and he was fabulous. He pulled up to our hotel exactly on time in his smooth, air conditioned van to whisk us to Bonifacio. We were one American, one Costa Rican, two Portuguese, and four French people. With skill and charm,... More

My husband and I spent one week in Corsica in July; we started doing research for the trip last August. After reading all of the positive reviews on TripAdvisor, I contacted Xavier to ask for some information. From his very first e-mail message, it was evident that he was extremely professional (and very courteous). With his guidance, we planned three... More

We visited Corte and Bonifacio. They were utterly amazing trips and I recommend Xavier to anyone who wants to explore Corsica and learn about its history, geography, culture, agriculture, national identity, geopolitics, &c... in French or English. His people-carrier is incredibly comfortable - even on some challenging bumpy mountain roads - and absolutely spotless too. In addition to being highly... More

We decided to take 3 tours (Bonifacio, Piana Scandola and Corte Restonica) with Xavier in his VW minivan after reading all the amazing reviews from Tripadvisor. When we first contacted him via email, he was very prompt in answering all our questions which we appreciated. Sidebar: when we contacted another tour operator, they took their sweet time. He will pick... More

How fortunate we were to have chosen Xavier and his Authentic Tours of Corsica. Xavier really knows Corsica and its history and provides interesting and amusing information about all the places as we ride in comfort in his VW Van. If you have only a few days to spend in Corsica, Authentic Tour is a great way to see the... More

Our guide, Xavier, came highly recommended via TripAdvisor. He exceeded our expectations. We did a full day tour in a very comfortable Volkswagen van. We covered a widely diverse range of sights, had a wonderful lunch in a quaint hilltop restaurant, did a 3 hour boat tour of the Reserve Naturelle De Scandola & saw the incredible formations of the...
