Hello, my name is Toby and I set up Hero Transfers as a privately run French chauffeur company providing transfers to and from the Tarentaise from all the nearest airports and train stations; Geneva, Lyon, Grenoble, Chambery, Turin.
It is pretty special to live in this part of the world, so I believe your journey out here needs to reflect that.
With me you are in pretty good hands. I offer you experience, reliability and safety. I have been driving for over 30 years and I have lived in the Tarentaise for nearly 8 years so I know the best and safest routes, whatever the weather.
I am a licenced chauffeur with the Carte Professionnelle de Conducteur de Voiture de Transport avec Chauffeur (bit of a mouthful!), which also means I carry the appropriate insurance for carrying passengers in France, Switzerland and neighbouring European countries, if we need to travel that far!
Like you I'm passionate about the mountains, but to live out here you need a few strings to your bow.... In the summer months you can usually find me at Treble Cone ski field in NZ where I work as a ski patroller, and some time soon I will qualify as a pisteur secouriste here in France. As part of my patrol training I am qualified in advanced first aid, both with the New Zealand PHEC3 and French PSE1&2 certification. And when I'm not patrolling or driving, you can usually find me up a tree, when I'm working as an arborist climber/ elagueur grimpeur!
So I should have a few stories to share on our journey to the mountains, hope to see you out here again soon!!
