Would it be possible to post Nancy's email contact here. My family and I took a tour with Nancy in 2015 and I lost her email when my computer crashed. If there is any chance in getting it I would be most grateful.
Her tour was wonderful and my family enjoyed the morning. Nancy also arranged a chef to come to our rented house and teach us some French cooking.

Boy did we hit the jackpot! My husband and I were traveling from a week near Carcassone in a rental gite to Marseille To fly home and had several days with no planned itinerary. We decided to try a night in the charming French seaside town of Sete, famous for their water-sport of jousting, more on this later. We found a room at the Hotel L'Orgue Bleu right on the main canal. I picked up some brochures from the stand and expected to get the typical ones for the tourist boat trips, etc. well we struck gold when we saw one for gourmet walking tour, gourmet cooking and also specialty photography through Absolutely Southern France. Www.AbsolutelySouthernFrance.com. We were there on a Saturday and the walking tour started at 9:30 and it was 9am when I called the number on the flyer. Nancy answered and she had no bookings that day so hadn't planned to do a tour but if we could wait a bit she would meet us. We met at one of the Places in central part of town and proceeded to learn about the history of Sete accompanied by stops along the way at Les Halles to sample and learn about the local specialties. She is clearly a favorite of the best purveyors as they stopped their busy morning service to talk with us when we sampled their food and answer our questions. You need to be able to walk good distances as she has selected the best shops in town and they are not all right next to each other, but that added to the experience as we got to see and learn more about the town.
As we were ready to end our morning together Nancy asked where our next stop was and we were planning to spend the night in Aigues Mortes. She told us that this particular Saturday night in France was very special as there would be free music performances in almost all of the towns throughout France and because Sete is quite the artistic town, the choices of types of music and venues would be much more then in Aigues Mortes, PLUS there would be water jousting without the crazy large crowds normally during the big August tournament. Sounded like a great plan, only problem was we had already checked out of our hotel. Being the consummate professional and problem solver, nancy shared with us that she was part of Airbnb, so had a room in her apartment to rent if our hotel couldn't accommodate us, we had never used Airbnb before so decided this would be a great way to start. It was great. Spent the late afternoon watching the water jousting ( go on YouTube water jousting in Sete if never seen before), wandering through one of the public gardens with musicians throughout, ended up having dinner near another venue with music so we had entertainment as well as good food. And all of this great day thanks to Nancy. She is a true professional and a lovely lady. Visiting Sete without booking a tour with Nancy would be your loss.

My family and I traveled to Sete for a day in early May. The Savouring Southern France gourmet walking tour is absolutely the best way to see this charming city.

Nancy is full of energy and incredibly engaging. She lead us throughout Sete to a variety of local shops and markets, treating us to food that was absolutely delicious. We tasted coffee, cheeses, fruit, oysters and more. I only wish I had Nancy on every vacation to tour me around-she is wonderful!

My sister and I are in our early 20's and this tour is great for all ages. Everyone in my family loved our day in Sete and couldn't stop raving about it the rest of our trip in the Mediterranean.

While in Sete, the Savouring Southern France tour is a must!

We booked our tour with Nancy just before the pandemic outbreak and paid for it in full. All our communications were very responsive and professional. As soon as we realized we would be unable to travel we requested a refund. Nancy replied in less than a day and our credit card was refunded immediately.

We are very impressed with her response and highly recommend her.
We are looking forward to touring with her in the future.

Thank you so much Nancy we had a great time on your tour. Thank you for being patient with us filming the tour. We loved all the food, and the knowledge Nancy had of the markets, the food and the people that ran the stalls. There was lots of food, make sure you don't eat breakfast before you go. A perfect tour for your stay in Sete or if you are there for the day on a cruise.

I found this Sete Gourmet Walking Tour via Trip Advisor, knowing that I would be in Sete France in November on a Viking Cruise. I was originally very disappointed that the cruise modified their itinerary from St. Tropez to Sete, as I had never heard of Sete and was looking forward to visiting St. Tropez. Looking on Trip Advisor for things to do in Sete I found this Gourmet Walking Tour by Nancy McGee. The outstanding reviews led me to sign up for this tour, and it was the best decision. This was an absolutely wonderful tour. Nancy gives you the history and culture of Sete as you walk the lovely streets, and a visit to the market where we sampled local food from oysters to mussels to olives and more. The oysters were so outstanding I don't think I'll find anything comparable in taste anywhere! And, because Nancy has a great relationship with the merchants at the market we were welcomed visitors and treated like royalty. The pièce de résistance was the wine and cheese tasting at a local wine merchant. I would highly recommend this tour, and if I'm ever in Southern France again Sete is on my itinerary!

Gosh! I'm flattered and so is Sète! Thank you for this amazing review. Without the kind merchants and fine food items along with the quirky nature of Sète, my tour would not exist. I'm so pleased you enjoyed your culinary experience and hope to see you again in sunny Sète .

Nancy was the perfect Host bringing us, 6 in total along to meet the various Artisans, trying all their wonderful local fare, explaining in detail what we were eating, from Roquefort Cheese to Mouthwatering Apricots and much more besides. I would recommend this tour to anyone with a few hours to spare. You won't be disappointed.

This was a tour booked by a family member while we were visiting Sète. Nancy was absolutely brilliant. The history and culture of Sète were described in a very informative but fun way, with anecdotes and insight into local food which travellers generally miss out on. The trip into the local food market and the chance to taste various local delicacies including fresh oysters, marinated anchovies, mussels were absolutely great. This tour should be on a must do list if you are visiting Sète. Thank you Nancy, for the wonderful day.
