Born and raised in Arles—and fluent in English—I am un vrai Provencal…a real native! After spending few years living alongside the Mediterranean cost (Marseille, Hyeres, Antibes), I decided to leave home. My adventure started with the USA and New-York, followed with Sweden and finishing up with London, where I lived for over 4 years. But I then was ready to come home and I decided I’d set up business helping people visiting Provence and the Camargue to make the very most out of it. Passionate about food and wine, I created I Am Not a Tourist, offering day tours and authentic travel experiences following various seasons and themes. My goal? To help you discover the region through tasting and meeting local producers. If you fancy a chic gourmet experience, I can organize one-of-a-kind picnic prepared by Michelin starred chefs.

My husband and I were visiting the South of France for our honeymoon- and were looking for a mix of relaxing and authentic cultural experiences- and Seb absolutely delivered. We could not have been more lucky to find him here- he is EXTREMELY knowledgeable, passionate about French food, wine, and art- and an absolute pleasure to be around. He set up the most incredible day for us: a visit to a local goat farm to watch goat cheese literally get made in front of our eyes, a wine tasting, olive oil tasting- even a surprise visit to one of the coolest art exhibits we've ever been to. This was one of the highlights of our honeymoon, and we couldn't be more grateful to him for thoughtfully planning such a memorable day. Seb takes care of every detail for you- when it (unexpectedly) rained and our picnic plans had to change, he didn't miss a beat- and instead took us to an amazing restaurant nearby. His excitement about his home is infectious, and we're so inspired to come back and explore more of the beautiful French countryside!
