Vad du kommer att göra

We will be walking in the old town of Aix, most of which has not changed for over 400 years. In our 2 hours together we will travel from Roman times to the present, Aix has a colourful history.
We will also see and stop at some of my favourite markets , bars and ice cream shops ! We will start at the Rotonde, the symbol of our city .Stroll the famous Cours Mirabeau boulevard and discover the stories behind the grand doors.Next we enter the Mazarin Quarter , it remains an elegant place to live, beautiful mansions and still the site of the school where Cezanne and Zola became life long friends . Wind up through the lanes of the old medieval city, past fancy shops, daily food and flower markets to the Cathedral dating from the 5th Century finishing at the still standing medieval town walls.
Other things to note
Children Under 13 Free !
Parking in Aix on the street is possible but the Car Parks are not expensive and all are within 10 minutes walk of wherever you want to go. I wouldn't stress looking too hard for a spot. Nearest Car Park to our meet is La Rotonde , 1 min walk .

Hi , I'm Richard . lts May 2021 and we are back and making up for lost time. Bars and Terraces are busy and I am strolling through town with new faces again, great . I am fully vaxxed up , remembered my dates and found some new stories. I have lived and worked in the UK, USA, Asia before settling in Aix. On a year long trip around the world, we took a lot of walking tours, its the best way to get to know a city. The best tours were small groups ,the guide knew the history, but also the stories, the characters not just the dates,
You will hear the stories of Aix, noble and not so noble , at the end I want you to want to live here , or at least visit again.

Var ni kommer att vara

We will be taking a stroll through the old town of Aix. The medieval winding streets and the beautiful grand townhouses of Aix's golden age in the Seventeenth Century. I will tell you the stories and details which are hard to find, especially if you don't speak French. The stories that have made Aix what it is.

Richard's tour was informative and interesting, it was a good way to familiarise myself with parts of the city at the start of my trip. Richard was friendly and put everyone at ease.

We booked this tour for the day after arriving in Aix. Richard is full of history and and stories and a great sense of humor. I think he really gets a feel for the group he's showing around and caters to them, making all inclusive. Richard quickly offered up honest insights and suggestions when asked. The value of his tour is honestly off the charts and well worth it. Thank you for starting our visit off right!

Richard had some great insights into the history of Aix, all told in an casual yet informative way. He had a real love for the place and was nice to get an ex-pat point of view also.

Richard put the cherry on top of our visit to Aix. The tour was very educational and the information was delivered in an entertaining way. Richard did a great job connecting the Aix of today back to the Aix of old.

If you enjoy walking through time and learning about past and present day. Absolutely book this. We choose to book private which was definitely worth it. Richard is extremely knowledgeable and takes the time to walk u through present day all the way back to B.C. with a large focus on how Aix has become the city it is today. Great humor and exciting story teller. He has definitely done his research. To be honest my husband and I have become quite enchanted about Aix because of this tour! It is a must!
