          Great tour to Lascaux caves and knowledgeable guide!
          Christian was professional, knowledgeable and very pleasant. (He speaks English and French fluently, Spanish (I think) and a smattering of other languages, too!) He arrived early at 8:20a.m. at the hotel for an 8:30 pickup, and was a very good driver. We felt safe with him. We arrived at Lascaux with 10 minutes to spare before our tour began. Lascaux was just wonderful ! It is a fantastic museum and exhibit, expertly done. We ate at the café de Lascaux. It was just a panini, but it was tasty. Christian then drove us to tour the caves at Rouffignac. Although we had never before heard of Rouffignac, it was very interesting. It took roughly 2-2.5 hours to return to the hotel. The ride was smooth.We got back to the hotel at about 5:30p.m. It was a long day for us, but very worth it.

          Outstanding Tour
          It was a perfect day. Christian is pleasant, knowledgeable and provided a comfortable ride. Lascaux is outstanding. The museum and tour were excellent, as is their restaurant. Rouffignac cave was a pleasant surprise. Tour was in French, but the guide was considerate of English-speaking visitors and answered questions when asked. It is a very fine tour.

          Good driver but not really a tour guide. Vehicle used was not comfortable, insufficient space & short leg room

          Visit to Lascaux IV and Rouffignac from Bordeaux
          We were in Bordeaux for two days on a cruise and wanted the experience of seeing cave art by visiting these two sites. Christian was an excellent guide to the region and made the two-hour trip each way very pleasant. We definitely recommend him as a tour guide!

          A Day With Christian
          Christian could not have been a better guide. He picked us up on time, had a very comfortable vehicle, and was very knowledgeable.

          Nice Day in Giverny
          We enjoyed our day with Christian. You can tell he is really passionate about showing his love for France with others. He is very knowledgable and easy to talk to.

          A fun, reliable guide with a love of France
          We have used Christian Mayer as our guide throughout Normandy, the Loire Valley, and the Basque Country of France and Spain. He has become a genuine friend and with his American heritage, we have always had easygoing, informative tours. Wouldn’t think of hiring any other company when we return to France! Pam Carey

          Adventure Exceeded Expectations
          Christian provided our small group of four adults with a customized tour through the South of France. He was very professional but also personable. We learned a lot about the history and saw many wonderful and interesting places. It was worry free as he took care of everything and we just got to enjoy the trip. I would highly recommend Christian.

          Phenomenal Guide and Tour
          Christian was amazing. His personal stories and knowledge of the areas that we visited was extensive and entertaining. We had a large group with us and Christian quickly warmed himself into all of our hearts and minds. He was adept at the more traditional sites and was more than willing and eager to recommend activities outside the normal boundaries. If we ever have a chance to visit France again we will most certainly return to our new friend, Christian. Oh, and don't forget to ask him to play the saxophone!

          Incredible personalized tour of Bordeaux
          My husband and I had a wonderful experience touring Bordeaux and Rocamadour. Christian's insider knowledge of the area let us see France in a way few travelers get the privilege to experience. Our visits to Font de Gaume, the hanging gardens of Marqueyssac, and the Dordogne towns and Castles were very special. The authentic French restaurants that we were taken to allowed us to eat like locals; and then there were the wines!! Traveling with like this was like visiting a trusted friend with great knowledge and love of local history. We have travelled on tours all over Europe and the world and were especially impressed by the guide's professionalism and love of this area.

          A tour that gave us just what we wanted
          We booked a five-hour tour with a car and driver through 8rental.com and I was a little nervous about it as I could not find much about them. But I need not have worried....David Jonke has been running the Bordeaux tours for only a year and we were lucky enough to have him as our driver and guide. It is often hard to get across to a driver/guide what it is you want but David understood perfectly: a visit to a picturesque town (St Emilion), and a small family run vineyard where there wouldn't be crowds of visitors. And, finally, most difficult of all, a good meal at a traditional local restaurant. And that is what we got - no menu, just eat what is put in front of you. Six courses, wine and coffee for 14 Euros each. Perfect. Thank you David for a wonderful, authentic day in the Bordeaux region.

          Private Tour in Paris
          We had a day in Paris with Christian. Christian was very well informed on all areas of tourist interest as well as the current events happening in France. We were there the day before the Presidential election and he was open to all kinds of questions about their process and the implications of each candidate getting elected. He was raised in the states then relocated to France so his English is excellent. Very pleasant, arrived on time, was negotiable about extending his time an extra hour for us, allowed us to direct our plans for the day and as we changed our plans slightly went with the flow. He is amazing!
