Wir haben eine zweistündige Führung von Mathieu auf Englisch bekommen und waren begeistert: Mathieu hat es geschafft, die Geschichte der Stadt mit kleinen Anekdoten und Pop-Culture-Referenzen spannend und der Zielgruppe (Azubis Anfang 20) angemessen zu vermitteln. Wobei ich mir sicher bin, dass er sein Wissen ebenso angemessen mit einem älteren Publikum teilen kann, sich also den Bedürfnissen der Zielgruppe anpasst und dabei auch sichtlich Spaß an seiner Berufung hat. Man konnte jederzeit Fragen stellen und hat stets eine fundierte und ausführliche Antwort erhalten. Besser hätten wir es nicht treffen können! Vielen Dank, Mathieu!

Our guide Matthew was informative , and very accommodating. The two gentlemen in our group needed to sit while Matthew talked to us and he always found a place for them. We walked slowly and he was willing to extend the time of the tour so he could fit everything in. He showed up in costume and so we not only got a history lesson about Tours we had a history lesson about musketeers. A would highly recommend this guide, he is a treasure!!!!!
