France Guide Interviews
|Parisian Arnaud Servignat is one of several France guides who have appeared on Rick’s radio show.|
Read — and hear — interviews with Rick's France guides
A fun way to be introduced to a region — and to "test drive" a tour guide — is to read or listen to interviews. This month we are featuring print interviews with a bunch of our popular France guides...
- William and Marie Altman — they share a home, and a love for guiding.
- Elisabeth Van Hest — fell in love with Paris...and stayed.
- Toni Clark — living her dream job.
- Patrick Vidal — the quintessential Frenchman.
...and excerpts from Travel with Rick Steves radio shows that have featured our France tour guides...
