A chance meeting, when Sue Ann and her husband Rick were visiting Arles, introduced them to Mathieu, who has been a partner since that day.
Born in Arles, now living in Aix-de-Provence, Mathieu
knows Provence like the back of his hand. He's fun,
funny, kind, and so very generous with his experience.
The Girlfriends participants will truly treasure their time
with Mat, whose expertise will make their trip most
Mat is a professional guide with
Provence Art Experience.

Three friends in France who give 'local voice' to My heART Trip, leading our private tours in Paris or Provence.
On Sue Ann's very first trip hosting in France, she overheard Joëlle explaining Monet's Grand Panels to a group in the Musée de l'Orangerie, .... and hanging on
her every word. Respectful that she wasn't a part of the tour being led,
Sue Ann pealed herself away; but ran into them again later.
Long story short, she met Joëlle that day, immediately hired
her and her tours have been a part of My Art Trip ever since.
Extremely experienced, brilliantly shared; on her insightful
tour you too will find yourself hanging on her every word.
Sue Ann had been following Corey's blog for
a few months when she hired him to guide her
group in 2017. Her guests raved about the
experience and he now always leads tours when she has guests in Paris. They have since become friends. Sue Ann and Susan have each been guests on his video blog. His tour(s) will delight and intrigue you - filled with history and more knowledge than you can imagine. Can't wait for you to meet him!
Corey was living in NYC when in 2006 a serendipitous encounter on a subway platform introduced him to a random French tourist. She had a cute accent and
he could play the guitar, so things worked out
and after many long Skype chats and even longer
transatlantic flights they married and moved to
Paris. As soon as he touched down, Corey fell
under the city’s spell. He has dedicated
his time to exploring and unlocking its
secrets ever since. He is now a highly
sought-after tour guide as well as an
editor and writer about all things Paris.
