We took this tour after having already spent two days exploring the city on our own and were somewhat concerned that we would be repeating our travels. No worries! Mathilde gave us a glimpse of Aix that we wouldn't have gotten on our own. Small...More

Our tour was fantastic. Mathilde showed us around the market and even had arranged for us to sample various foods from the region. Her knowledge of the history and culture of Aix is deep, and she communicates very well. Worth every penny!
