What people are saying about Tours, France

Mathieu gave us a two-hour tour in English and we were thrilled: Mathieu managed to convey the history of the city with little anecdotes and pop culture references in an exciting and appropriate way for the target group (trainees in their early 20s). I'm sure that he can share his knowledge with an older audience just as appropriately, adapting to the needs of the target group and obviously having fun with his job. You could ask questions at any time and always received a well-founded and detailed answer. We couldn't have done better! Thank you Mathieu!

Our guide Matthew was informative , and very accommodating. The two gentlemen in our group needed to sit while Matthew talked to us and he always found a place for them. We walked slowly and he was willing to extend the time of the tour so he could fit everything in. He showed up in costume and so we not only got a history lesson about Tours we had a history lesson about musketeers. A would highly recommend this guide, he is a treasure!!!!!

Our guide did not count his time, He was very invested, very interesting, and knew how to adapt to young and old alike.

Highly recommended

We had a great time!! The explanations of the magnificent guide !!

Excellent tour with excellent knowledge and fun stories
