We had read a number of very positive reviews of Xavier and his tour, and he deserves all the praise he's received. Our group of 7 ranged in age from 17 to the mid 60s and he engaged everyone equally. It seems as if he knows every inch of the island and is justifiably proud of its beauty and history.... More

Having read all the reviews I was very much looking forward to using Authentic Tours and they did not disappoint. I wasn't able to do the two tours I wanted to do, because of my schedule, but because of the reviews, accepted the one tour that did fit my schedule (Calvi). It was excellent, in spite of inclement weather and... More

We decided to do a half day tour rather than a full day tour in Corsica. I contacted Xavier and though he was already spoken for, he promised our group an excellent tour guide. We all just loved Emmanuel! He was so charming and told us many, many interesting things about Corsica. His delivery was so unrehearsed, it felt as... More

We are a party of 4 adults planning a cruise in the Western Mediterranean in August 2016. With Alex's help via several emails, we arranged a private excursion in Corsica. His honesty and knowledge of the area were greatly appreciated. Unfortunately, we had to cancel our plans, but we wanted to share our positive experience.

We visited Ajaccio by cruise ship and only had one day in Corsica. While the seaside town is very quaint, the highlight of our day was definitely our tour with Xavier. You really cannot experience the beauty of Corsica without traveling outside of the city. Our wonderful guide picked us up promptly from the cruise ship dock, and we had... More

We had a wonderful half-day tour with Xavier when our ship docked in Corsica. He met us promptly at the port and off we went to seeing the sights. Breathtaking views along with our guide who was delightful, friendly and most knowledgeable made for a perfect excursion. We also had time to stop at a honey farm where we tasted... More

A very nice bunch of people, great Corsican scenery, a genuinely friendly and helpful guide (Xavier) who took us to some out of the way places, Bonifaccio itself and the boat ride. It was a magic day really. Many thanks to Xavier.

My wife and I had the chance to find authentic tour on trip advisor during our short trip to Corsica. We were very lucky to have the last seats left. Xavier is a great person with a great sense of humor. We visited the mountain side in the morning, tasted local food; in the afternoon we went to the sea... More

Took the trip to Bonifacio. Great service by Xavier, nice and friendly, and very knowledgeable. Perfect with the included boat trip at Bonifacio and the stops he had planned both ways.
