About French Tours

French Tours is owned and run by Michael Smith. He is a French government approved bilingual guide/interpreter. All guides employed by him are suitably qualified. He is happy to work with any size and type of group, from an individual to groups of fifty plus, from school groups to individuals wanted to find ancestors who served here.

Michael has a licence to drive all types of passenger vehicles, from the smallest car to the largest touring bus, if necessary. He can provide the vehicle to suit your requirements or if you have your own vehicle, whether it be a car, a minibus or a touring coach, the rates for guiding only are very competitive.

As a licensed national guide/interpreter, Michael is allowed to guide in other regions of France, so that you could combine your trip with a visit to the battlefields of the Somme, or sightseeing in Paris.

We can arrange, at cost, accommodation of any kind for you. We can put together itineraries to suit your particular interest or nationality.

Importantly, in this age when we all depend on the internet, more than 80% of our work is from recommendation or repeat business. Michael is not here to show how much he knows, but to share an experience, and to learn from you, about your lives, your experiences.

When you contact Michael he will give you a quote. If you decide not to use his services he won’t be in the least offended. We believe, though, that our prices won’t be bettered for the level of service offered. Bear in mind that Michael is approved by the French government and by local tourist offices.
