Noe was the perfect guide for our recent trip through France. He was knowledgeable, spoke perfect English, was kind, accommodating and willing to go above and beyond to assure that my family and I had an amazing experience.There is no doubt that we will use him for our next European vacation. The trip would not been anywhere near as relaxing nor enjoyable without his expertise and guidance.

Zen was recommended to us by our hotel concierge. We were introduced to Noe, the owner, who sat down with us in-person at our hotel to tell us about all of the lovely places to see around Montpellier. Over the next 2 days, we worked with Noe, via text and phone calls, to arrange a tour designed for our interests and budget. Noe was extremely helpful and responsiveOur tour was first class and tailored to our desires. Noe picked up my wife, daughter, and me in the morning in a large, comfortable Mercedes van.We were first taken to the Grotte des Demoiselles for a private tour of the caves given by the cave guide company. Noe then drove us to see 2 small villages, a waterfall, and a view of a gorge from the bridge. Noe had prepared a picnic lunch for us with sandwiches and salads as we had requested of him prior to the tour.The highlights of our trip were the caves, Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert, and our picnic lunch. Noe took every opportunity to make us comfortable, to educate us on the region, and to give us a wonderful bespoke day. Highly recommended.
