Hi, my name is Richard. I really enjoyed my first year of Aix Walking Tours , my love of this town and history is a great combination . I met lots of interesting, engaging people from all over the world and had a ton of great reviews and I was looking forward to an even better 2020 and then Covid19 . The good news is we are now back, so if you can get to Aix , I would love to see you. I have lived and worked in the UK, USA and Asia . On a year plus family trip around the world we took a lot of walking tours. Its the best way to get to know a city and I got to know what makes a good walking tour - Small groups , so you can hear and ask questions. A guide who knows the facts , but also the stories , the characters , the fun, what its like to actually live in the city. I want you to know Aix and even want to live here , or at least come back and visit again !
