Francois tailor made for us (a family between the age of 10 -76 yrs of age) very different interesting tours, from exciting boating to mountain touring, hiking and a lovely evening out. We all had a super time, learned a lot and saw Corsica in a great way we could not have be able to see by ourselves. Francois is... More

If your in the position of hesitation, seriously, take this tour, it's the real deal. Francois is a truly open book and tells you any story about the island, the more you ask the more you will hear. So make sure you have all your "but why" Corsica questions ready and don't be afraid to ask - you'll get to... More

My husband and I booked a one day tour with François, guide and owner of A Caminata Tours, several months before our April 2016 trip to Corsica. François was very responsive to my emails, answering my questions and offering suggestions. It was easy to book and pay for the deposit through his website using PayPal. We had a wonderful day...

We consider ourselves "GlobeTrotters" and through the years we have met with good and not so good Tour Guides. Francois Zamponi, A Caminata, was "Brillant" He is dedicated to his profession. His knowledge of the Culture,History, Social, Political and Natural Resources of Corsica is explained in excellent english. The beautiful Island of Corsica is worthy of a guide like Francois...

On the morning our ship was to dock at 9:00 a.m. in Bonifacio, because of weather ,we were forced to dock in another port about an hour away from Bonifacio. I emailed Francois immediately and told...

These conditions mention effectively some limits for myself as well as for my customers. So it is planned there, that I take care of my... More
