Experience My France

An alternative option between conventional tourism and independent travel. Do you want to:

  • connect with the local French culture, traditions and people of South West France?
  • choose your own discovery options?
  • gain local insights with your guide, driver and interpreter?
  • get advice on creating your own experience of L'Occitanie?

Then you have come to the right place for a truly experiential travel opportunity.


Why Choose My Tours?

My tours are different because:

  • you can meet local people including family and friends to show you the true character of the region, discover places and feel connected.
  • you deepen your cultural experience by learning some French with a qualified French teacher to deepen your cultural experience in authentic and practical learning situations, which will boost your confidence in speaking French.
  • you play a key role in designing your tour by benefiting from my local insights and knowledge of my region depending on your interests, level of pace, fitness and mobility.
  • you can optimise your cultural experience with a hands on approach such as cooking with locals.
  • you get insight into French lifestyle exploring beyond the popular tourist regions and idealised images of France.
