Guided tour specialists

One of the leading tour companies on the coast, France Azur Excursions takes you to the most beautiful spots on and off the beaten path on the French and Italian Riviera, whether your passion is history, culture, nature, outdoor sports or gastronomy.

Formerly an international lawyer and a consultant for Unesco in Paris, its founder Fouad Zarrou ran his own export company before coming to the Côte d’Azur, where his lifelong passion for diving and especially free diving led him to explore the region in depth. Drawn to the bottom of the sea and the mountain peaks, he left the corporate world behind to create his own tour company that would allow him to share his knowledge and enthusiasm.

When he is not touring, Fouad can be found cycling, skiing, climbing and hiking in the mountains or free diving and paddle boarding off the coast. Familiar with all the secret trails and little-known spots in the region, he is happy to lead you off the tourist path and arrange outdoor activities for sports and adventure enthusiasts or families with children. An accomplished cook, he can also organize cooking classes and food and wine excursions.

Born in Morocco, Fouad speaks English, French, Spanish and Arabic and has lived in South Africa and Spain as well in Paris for 12 years. A graduate of the Sorbonne, he has extensive knowledge of French culture and history which he shares on his tours.

France Azur Excursions offers tours to the main cities along the coast including Cannes, Antibes, Monaco and Menton, and the most beautiful villages in the countryside of the French and Italian Riviera: Saint Paul de Vence, Eze, Gourdon and many others.

In order to provide the highest level of service, France Azur Excursions offers only private excursions and transfers.
