Provence Lavender Fields and Aix-en-Provence Tour from Marseille

Marseille, France

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

We loved Aix-en-Provence . We did get a good walking tour first to get the lie of the land, so to speak.
The Lavender fields were disappointing because the buds hadn't opened - not anyone's fault, of course but an alternative could have been offered.The following drive around to a couple of villages seemed a bit aimless (partly because one village was closed off) |We were asked what we would like instead but didn't know the area.
It was very annoying to be dropped so far from the hotel. We were told this was because the road was closed but there was traffic still going in both directions. (I think it was to be closed off later for the music festival). I feel you should stick to promised arrangements.
We had quite a bit of extra distance to walk because we weren't actually staying at the hotel. It would be much better to be picked up and dropped off at our accommodation, instead of having to make our way through rowdy crowds, after walking the extra distance. Also, the vehicle was much too crowded.

Virginia was utterly fabulous. She is so vivacious and and fun to be with. The villages were just beautiful - a lovely look at an interesting part of Provence.

Auvers sur Oise and Giverny Small Group Day Trip from Paris

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Pablo our guide deserves 5 stars! He is very knowledgeable and passionate about his subject. I loved every bit of Auvers-sur-Oise, and would have liked to stay on for a while longer for the market. The girl who showed us Van Gogh's bedroom was very boring and deadpan - she obviously didn't care a hoot. However, that's not Viator's fault and Pablo made up for it.
The lunch was utterly fabulous. Our little group of four had our own outdoor table, great service, and lovely food, in that dielightful garden.
Giverney was so overcrowded! The watergarden was worth it anyway, but I couldn't stand the house tour - visitors crammed into the narrow stairs and so stuffy. I had to fight my way out! well - I did go in summer, I suppose. ha ha! My friend braved the crush and said it was worth it.
