Meet your local guide

Lindsay and Elaine

"Watch out for those French boys!” Sound fatherly advice, soon forgotten by a teenage Elaine. Our Bristol born guide’s school exchange was to lead to French boy, French love and French marriage. Now “several" years later, she’s here to give you an insider’s take on this region. Ever feel like ditching the day job, to retire to France and drink wine every day? Your guide, history enthusiast and Francophile, Lindsay, did just that. Back in 2011, after 30 years loyal public service, she said goodbye to the rat race and hello to “la belle vie”. They have been professionally guiding for Viking and other cruise companies since 2014. Come join them on a tour of their adopted region.

Lindsay and Elaine has been guiding since Mar 2013

Oh my goodness this tour was absolutely amazing. I learnt so much in such a short time. It was completely gripping. So well planned and perfectly rounded off with the scene of the wine at the end. Not sure how you can top this tour ladies! Thanks so much. Outstanding
