Michel Legrand Private tour guide in Nice, Marseille, Toulon - France

Michel Legrand

Guide profile:

Bonjour !

Well not that easy to make a choice isn't it ?

What speaks the most about a Tour Guide are the reasons why he chose the job. As for me it's pretty simple: I'm a France lover, I have a passion for all its aspects vouchers as bad. So my ambition is double: to make you spend the best day and turn it into a long lasting memory, but also to give you some keys to understand the sites you will discover with me. As a writer said "we travel to change, not of place, but of ideas". . .

I'd like you to live the place and not only seeing it.

Finally I think that a good tour must include good mood, that is why I consider the laughter as integral part of my work.

It's been 15 years that I provide guided tours on the French Riviera and Provence. I'm National licenced tour guide & lecturer (Nice university), I have a Master degree in Modern History and one in Political Sciences from the Sorbonne University (Paris). I'm also registered as professional driver.

Like everyone I have my own fields of interest which are mountain running, jazz (Keith Jarrett is my hero), bistro food, countryside, roman history, a quite place with a book, spectacular panoramas, and baseball T-shirts (well, go figure. . . ).

Some tours have a settled itinerary which can be slighty modified to match your expectations of course, and some tours are totally open so we can tailor-made them together. You will also discover that some of my programs are more cultural than others, but they're never boring.

If you don't find the tour, the itinerary or the departure place of your choice, please contact me I can customize a special tour for you. Note that I can also do services for several days in a row.

I'm also the only one to provide running tours (sightrunning) on the French Riviera.

Pick up can be made at your hotel or your residence, at the Nice interational airport, or from your port of call (Villefranche, Cannes, Nice, Antibes, Monaco, Toulon, Saint-Tropez, Marseille), please check the details of each tour to see where it departs from.

For most of the tours you have the possibility to enjoy a real french pic-nic (optional), it's usually much nicer as well as much cheaper than a restaurant. Don't hesitate to ask me about that.

I use a comfortable 9 seater minivan (for 8 passengers), with A/C front and back.

If you have any question please contact me, I'll be happy to provide all the usefull informations.

A bientôt !

Michel

We had Catherine because Michel had a prior commitment. She was awesome in her knowledge and professionalism. We saw Nice, Eze and Monte-Carlo. She parked and escorted us to the casino. The restaurant she suggested for lunch was very good. Also, ample free time for shopping and restroom breaks. Thanks Caterina!!!!

Michel was outstanding...our day with him exceeded our expectations. We had only one day to sight see along the French Riviera and see as much as possible without feeling rushed. Michel provided a nice itinerary which was interesting and enjoyable for my wife and I, son and daughter.

We especially enjoyed his walking tour of Nice and the free time we had at several other villages. He is an expert of world history, speaks very good English. We highly recommend Michel, we will use him again.

Tour Guide Comment: Thank you very much for those nice words !

Michel met us at the cruise port and that was the beginning of a very special tour of the area. He is so knowledgeable but gives information in a very easy to understand way that invites questions. We spent time in Nice, Eze, Fragonard Perfume Factory (our request) Monaco and MonteCarlo. We never felt rushed and were able to fit so much in to our day trip. You will not be sorry if you choose Michel. Thank You Michel for making the start of our cruise so very special!

Tour Guide Comment: Thanks !!!
