One of the highlights of our recent holiday in France was a trip with Provence Connection from Aix en Provence, (where we were staying), to Cannes, Nice and Monaco. Our driver/guide, Fabrizio, was warm, full of information and of fun. He looked after us every step of the way. I wanted very much to take this tour, but was concerned that it might be a lot for my husband, whose mobility has been impaired by a recent illness, but Fabrizio was particularly considerate and helpful towards him, and he enjoyed it as much as I did.
Apart for the memorable visits to the highpoints of the three legendary Riviera towns, where we had time to walk about, and browse, (we took our coffee in Cannes, lunch in Nice and a ‘petit grand tour’of Monaco, as well as a drive around the famed Formula One circuit), our tour took in stops at the beautiful hilltop town of Eze, and to the Fragonard perfumery in Grasse. We had opportunities to stop and take photos at some of the breathtaking beauty stops. It was a wonderful day and covered so much.
I must also add that later that night, back in our hotel in Aix, my husband discovered that one of his hearing aids was missing! The likelihood of locating such a tiny (but costly) device, just a few centimetres in size, seemed remote. It could have fallen out in our hotel, or in Cannes, in Nice or Monaco, or anywhere in between!
But guess what? I made a phone call the next morning (Sunday) to Maria in the Provence Connection office, and she contacted Fabrizio, who was doing another tour that day. Unbelievably, he found the tiny device down the side of the rear seat of the minibus, and he drove over to our hotel with it that evening, since we were flying out of Marseille home to ireland early on Monday morning. Fabulous Fabrizio! What service! Above and beyond the call of duty – many, many thanks!
