Get Planning! →

Private sightseeing tour with an American driver-guide (Expatriate - in France since 1992)

Visit the colorful and historic Midi-Pyrenées Region North of Toulouse.

From Toulouse we'll first visit the Pech Merle Cavern with amazing prehistoric paintings.

Next we'll drive to St Cirq-LaPopie - one of the most beautiful villages in France

. . . One of the greatest advantages to my tours is flexibility.

I may propose or start the day with an itinerary in mind, or list of places to visit, but from there the day will unfold according to your personal wishes.

My objective is to help you to maximize your time spent here in France - so that you will most comfortably enjoy all the beauty and history - that you return home filled with spectacular memories of a marvelous adventure.
