30 years ago, at the end of my studies, I got my national guide-lecturer card and moved in the most beautiful region of France, the French Riviera, in order to fully experience this exciting profession. Curious little mouse, I love discovering secrets and unique places where only locals go. Over the years I gained a lot of contacts and exclusive addresses I wanted to share : after 15 years of experience and guided tours, I decided to specialize in the high tourist range and I created my own association, Alpine guides Interpreters, with a small dynamic team of qualified and multilingual local guides with a perfect knowledge of their region. Today, we offer quality tours, in English, French, Italian, Spanish and Russian in the French and Italian Riviera from Saint Tropez to San Remo via Cannes, Monaco, Antibes, Nice and many other splendid Riviera's cities. We love to organize themed tours in inaccessible places and sites to the general public to provide a unique view of the Riviera and its contrasts. With us, enjoy local cuisine in a gastronomic route to Nice, Cannes or Monaco; visit the Riviera and its beautiful coasts by boat; or explore the medieval villages such as Saint Paul de Vence, Eze, off the beaten tracks...

Our half-day tour of Monaco with Sylvie DiChristo was amazing, informative and breathtaking. As a guide, Sylvie provided excellent commentary, is very knowledgeable and extremely personable. Coupling this with the blue sky, sunny day and turqoise blue water made for a memorable day and fulfilling experience Deepak
