Jean-François SÉNÉCHAL Private tour guide in Nice - France

Jean-François SÉNÉCHAL

Guide profile:

I was born and grew up in Provence. I'm based on the French Riviera in Vence, the city of Matisse. Since 2005 I've been offering sightseeing tours all over the Riviera and Provence all year long. I also take cruise passengers from Toulon, Cannes, Nice, Villefranche, Monaco, St Tropez.

I give my guests a very interesting touch of French culture, history, art, gastronomy and wine, some hidden gems... in a warm and friendly atmosphere. You can also hire me for several days in a row and explore more. If you want to get an unforgettable experience, please contact me.

My "specialité" is off the beaten track tours.


- skiing package week in the French Alps in a chalet hotel (Chamonix, Megève)

- 1 day ski trips above Nice

- package tours in NEPAL (trekking, culture, people, villages, rafting...) from October 2016

FROM 80 euros per person per day. The rate you can see on this web site is only a reference price for your deposit to Viator. I'll send you a precise and personalized quote when you contact me. So please contact me before any booking. Thank you !

We have used many guides during rather extensive traveling. Their abilities varied from not-so-good to excellent. Jean-Francois was one of the very best. He appeared early as did we. He was very personable and knowledgable. He was open to spontaneous changes. We were never rushed yet saw many things at our pace. It was more like visiting a new area with a knowledgable friend than simply being accompanied by a "guide." If the need should arise in the future, we would hire him again.
