What a way to explore the little French Riviera! I am not new either to walking tours or to Pondicherry and yet I was surprised by both. I had taken the Moscow Free Tour when I was in Russia last year. For a long time, I considered it one of the best tours I’ve done. But French Connections has blown me away with it’s the attention to detail and depth of research. The stories of generals and generals, wine and women came alive and took us back in time.
