I am late in posting this review as our day with Cecile took place last June, but I didn't want to pass up the opportunity to say what a wonderful day we spent with her in Aix en Provence. Cecile met us at our ship in Marseille and spent the day showing us the best of Aix. Together, we went through the market, as we were lucky to be there on a Saturday, many historical sights, and plenty of great shops. About an hour into our tour, I whispered to my daughter that talking to Cecile is like getting a warm hug. She has a calm, soothing personality, excellent English, and is extremely knowledgable, wonderfully kind and accommodating. The day with her turned out to be the highlight of an extraordinary trip. We had a fantastic lunch at a restaurant she recommended and sampled some amazing cheeses and Rose from the region. We will definitely be back and will absolutely call Cecile again as we ended the day not as customers, but as friends. I cannot recommend Cecile highly enough and look forward to our next meeting!

We can only try to add to the superlatives that precede our review. We went on two excursions with Cecile. The first was with our son, daughter in law, and two grandchildren. We spent the day in the Dordogne and all three generations had a wonderful time.
My wife and I had planned to tour the Camargue the following week. We had so enjoyed our first outing that we decided it was worth it to ask Cecile if she could guide us there. A wise decision. Cecile is friendly,knowledgeable and very flexible. Time was never an issue. As she left, we felt we were bidding farewell to a friend.

Bonjour Phyllis & Joseph
Hope to see you back in Provence may be this september or october as it's a great season to travel to Provence. The light is then different that in summer, softer perfect for some great pictures. You already know Provence quite well but there is always a new area to discover...
All the best
Cécile

Had a fabulous time with Cecile. She picked us up promptly at our cruise ship and took us for one of the most memorable days of our trip. She was so genuine and kind. We felt like we were hanging out with a friend. After showing us around her home town of Aix, we explored the incredible markets in this beautiful town, did some shopping, checked out the culture, and had the most amazing lunch at a little niche we surely wouldn't have found on our own. We can't wait to go back to France to have Cecile show us around some more on the rest of her lovely tours. Thanks Cecile for a beautiful day.

Two fabulous weeks in France and our day touring with Cecile was one of the highlights. To tour the Luberon region with a "local expert" was a treat. Cecile shared local history, culture and even family recipes with us! Even though we had a rental car it was nice to take a day off and let Cecile take control, I would do it again!!

Together with my husband and daughter, we went on an unforgettable tour of the Verdon with Cecile as our amazing tour guide. The famous lavender fields coupled with their lovely smell made our drive very delightful. We truly enjoyed the stop at the village of Moustiers-Sainte-Marie which came with interesting stories told by Cecile, as well as a great lunch by the river recommended by Cecile. Cecile is very friendly, helpful and informative. My family would definitely go on Cecile's tours again when we go back!
