We booked our tour with Nancy just before the pandemic outbreak and paid for it in full. All our communications were very responsive and professional. As soon as we realized we would be unable to travel we requested a refund. Nancy replied in less than a day and our credit card was refunded immediately. We are very impressed with her response and highly recommend her. We are looking forward to touring with her in the future.

My husband and I did the Art Scene Experience tour in Séte with Debra as our guide. We were fortunate to visit 6 different studios as part of the experience. Each of the artists was unique in their techniques and mediums. I won't go into detail because I can't do them justice and also the studios may not be the same on other tours. We didn't buy any art on the tour. You are not obligated to, but if you decide to do this tour, you'll certainly find things you'll want to buy so be sure to take your credit card. Debra did a great job translating when necessary and she gave us some great tips about Séte festivals, of which there are many. The artists were welcoming and open. They all let us take photos, although some asked us not to post them online which is understandable. If you're in Séte, be sure to sign up for this experience. You will be glad you did.

I'm so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your art tour with Debra. She is such a great guide because she is also an artist which makes the tour even more special for the visitors. I"ll definitely extend your thanks to her and to all of the passionate artists who opened the doors to their workshops just for you!

Our small group met at the central square (Kiosk) and we visited 6 studios of different artists in the city. All of them were present, waiting for us to arrive and explained their work in detail. Our guide Debra gave us lots of useful information of the city, its festivals and about the artists during the walk. When we arrived each artist shared their stories and told us about their unique methods and upcoming shows and exhibitions. It was a wonderful experience well worth the small price! They are preparing another tour in the Quartier Haut, and I'm sure to subscribe as soon as it is launched! N.B. Bring comfortable walking shoes, take lots of photos of these hidden gems and a bottle of water!!!

Thank you Kovcsoki. I will definitely share the review with your guide Debra and the artists . Without their amazing talent and warm welcome, the tour wouldn't exist. We'll keep you posted when the second itinerary is launched . We look forward to seeing you again soon in Sète.

We did the "art scene experience tour" by Absolutely Southern France and we didn't regret it. This tour was exceptional and our guide very professional. The meeting with the artists was incredible and seeing them in their workshops added authentic value to the tour. We had a great 2 hours and we loved this tour. Thanks to Nancy the organizer and Deborah our guide. We really recommend this visit.

Thank you! As we have just launched this new art scene experience in Sète, we are delighted with your feedback. We will naturally share your impressions with the artists. Without their talent and friendly welcome, the tour wouldn't exist. See you soon for the second itinerary which should be launched soon!
