This was a highlight of our trip to France. Carole was an amazing guide! She is really an historian, not simply a guide - add knowledge to great driving skills. We would HIGHLY recommend this trip!
This tour was awesome - visited some amazing places that are not easily accessible without a car and the guided tour of the winery was great.
Our tour guide Caroline was very informative, enthusiastic and warm, and used a lot of her own experiences and knowledge to make it very interesting. Do it!
Very good tour. Had time to buy lunch but having something at a nice winery would have been fun,
Very comprehensive tour though.
This was a wonderful day - lots of driving in a mini van but we visited wonderful picturesque locations. It was also the first wine tour I've ever done where a sommelier instructed you on how to drink and taste wine properly. The guide was very accommodating and knowledgeable. I do think that it would be advisable to build in an opportunity to eat lunch at one of the many quaint little restaurants in Rousillon rather than trying to grab something on the run. Because we travelled so far, it sometimes felt like we had to dash into a village and then dash back to be on time to board the van. The Pont du Gard was awe inspiring! So glad I saw it. Some time could have been taken away from the visit to the amphitheatre in Orange to allow more time in other locations. The amphitheatre is wonderful but it was a fairly lengthy stop because we followed the audio tape. If the guide did the tour herself, this might expedite things somewhat. Loved this tour however as it took you to places that are difficult to reach on your own and yet are considered some of the most beautiful villages in France.
Unbelievable all day tour of Provence. Saw so many wonderful sights in a comfortable, air-conditioned van with 6 other people. Our driver was knowledgeable and personable. A great trip!
This was a great tour and included more than I anticipated. The towns and sights were interesting and gorgeous. The guide was informative and dropped us off at the entrances to limit the amount of walking and time. I would highly recommend this tour.

Excellent tour with highly personalised service touring interesting, well preserved and restored historical sites from Roman times as well as an enjoyable wine tasting experience.
We took this tour in September and had the best guide - Vanessa! She was so personable and fun! She was very well versed on everything we saw and did over the whole 10 1/2 hours. I was with my mom and sister and we all loved this tour and can't recommend this tour and Vanessa highly enough!!
This was a very enjoyable trip, lots of variety and heaps to see and do. Solene, our tour guide, was great and helped to make the day interesting and enjoyable
The tour guide was the reason for the 5 stars. I certainly enjoyed the sites, but the helpfulness of the leader made it more than worthwhile
Extremely nice tour. Tour guide was wonderful and very knowledgeable. We would recommend this tour to anyone. Thanks
This was an excellent tour, with a knowlagable tour guide. Loved the old villages, fantastic winery and the scenary, supberb. We booked this tour in Australia which was easy and hassel free. Would higly recommend.

Avignon was hot in July and we were there when they were holding the annual Arts Festival. We had a nice surprise as we were the only ones who booked the tour, and we ended up having our private tour.
I loved it! Fun driver/guide and lots of fabulous sights. Long day, but well worth it!
Amazing! I've been to provence twice before, but I had never gotten to see all the small little villages we went to. One of my favorite parts of my trip! Loved it a lot, I would really recommend it because it's just you and 7 other people, so you learn quite a lot. If you've never been to Provence before and don't have much time, I'd suggest to make sure you go to Arles, Avignon and Nimes though!
Vanessa was fantastic! We ended up in a car with only one other person (so 3 in total). Very informative. We saw so much in one day and couldn't have done it all on our own. Short visits to most places but still enough time to enjoy the atmosphere. Loved it! Thanks Vanessa and Provence Reservations :-)
Our tour guide, Vanessa, was excellent. She was very knowledgeable, prepared to put herself out for the clients and spoke good English. The tour itself was compehensive, covering a range of interesting locations. We would highly recommend this tour as a means of getting aquainted with the Provence region.
excellent tour - friendly and informative guide, and great selection of sites to visit.
This tour was great, saw so many beautiful little towns a really good overview of Provence. Our guide was a charming young woman from Avignon who was very knowledgeable.
Wow so much to see amazing hilltop villages could not recommend it more highly. Small van ideal for this trip. Solene was fantastic as a tour guide.
This was a great way to see many sights in one day. The small group size is perfect. If you don't have your own rental car, it's a great way to travel around. The times spent at each site are sufficient without being rushed.
My wife and I enjoyed this trip enormously. Mark/Marc was friendly, informative, patient and fun to be with throughout the long but never boring day. He kept us on schedule, and although there were times during a jam-packed day that we would have liked to linger longer here or there, I would not say that we ever felt rushed at all. Thoroughly recommended.
This tour was a highlight of our trip both because of the places we saw and the wealth of information and gracious care taken by our guide Julien. We visited fabulous towns and sites, and learned of history, food, wine, culture, family life, humor, music and saw more of Provence in one day than we would have in 3 on our own. We had adequate time at each place to explore on our own or together. it was a fantastic experience we will remember. And we came away with a list of suggestions for our remaining time around Avignon..
