Yvonne | about the guide

Discover the beautiful natural wonders of French Riviera on this day tour to the Verdon Canyon, the most spectacular river Canyon in France with its 700 meters deep and sky blue waters. Your licensed guide will pick you up in the morning directly at your hotel in Nice, Antibes, Cannes or any other city nearby. For about an hour and a half North West, you will drive on scenic roads going through the Gorges du Loup, and an impressive 40 meters high waterfall (Please remind that at that place the stop isn’t possible! Only slow driving to take a picture). You will arrive in Castellane, a charming pilgrimage village with a rich cultural heritage. There you will enjoy a coffee and a walk in the cobbled streets lined with colorful houses just before, your guide will drive you along the Verdon River from where you will enjoy some breathtaking views of the Verdon Canyon. Then, you will head further to Moustiers Sainte Marie, a medieval village nestled in the rocky mountains and internationally renowned for its delicate ceramics. You will enjoy a walking tour in the old center, discovering many faience and pottery shops. Then, you will take a little break for a lunch in one of the numerous restaurants around. Your day will continue to the historical Château Sainte Roseline, famous for its eleven different grape varieties producing delicious wines (There is no tour as available at certain times only). There you will enjoy a delicious wine tasting of typical Provence wine. Your guide will drive you back to the departure point at the end of the day. NB: Please note you can customize your itinerary to fit your needs and interests.

German born in Munich, I always loved french culture and I studied it before deciding 26 years ago to move abroad, first to Turkey for a short stay, and then in France, in Nice, where I worked at Nice International Airport as a ground handling agent and where I was in contact with many people and cultures. I really liked this human dimension and I always wanted to help travellers enjoying their stay in the region by giving them local tips and advices. Knowing that, I decided to change my professional direction and went back to study Art (especially 19th-century art) and architecture at the University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis to become a licensed tour guide, leading in go back to study to become a certified tour guide, leading in German, French and English. Moving to the French Riviera, I immediately felt in love with this region, with its golden light, beautiful beaches and picturesque villages filled with history and art; my favorite are Cannes, Antibes, Aix en Provence, Monaco and Saint-Paul de Vence, where I have been guiding the last few years now, always trying to create tailor-made itineraries out of the beaten path with unique details and interesting anecdotes. My job is my true passion and I love to share it with my guests, while rediscovering the region each time with their eyes. Something curious about me: when I am not guiding, I love dancing and horse-riding!

Yvonne was pleasant, informative, and accommodating throughout the day. We enjoyed the tour. The only real drawback had nothing to do with the tour: to get to the Gorge requires a lot of time in the car.
