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 the past 6 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 am passionate about the mountains and adventure. Having worked in the Media and the Financial sector in London for a number of years, I spent 4 years training for the Dakar, which I managed to complete by motorbike in 2012. That sparked a period of change and in January 2014 I arrived French Alps (the view from our terrace). After a brief interlude with the birth of our first son, I have been training to become a Ski Patroller (Pisteur Secouriste) here and from June to October I usually work as a Ski Patroller in New Zealand.
I hope to see you out here soon!
