Brilliant. Second time doing this tour. Ended up booking a private tour as well. Informative, friendly guide who was happy to answer endless questions from all the guests. Great door to door service.
Nice all day trip in comfort to a variety of scenic sites. Guide allowed sufficient time at each location and provided interesting historical information.
Fantastic tour. Our guide was extremely interesing. She knew all the facts and details of the area and made the day enjoyable withour any hic-ups. The highlight for me was Roussillon. Having a small group works really well.
A nice little tour. I would say that there was really no need to stop at the Lavender Farm. The towns we visited were fare more interesting and beautiful and more time there would have been better. Our guide was vibrant, fresh and interesting.
Really enjoyed the tour, Sophie was very informative, and friendly and easy to understand.
We had a great time, our tour guide was excellent! She answered all our questions adequately and was very helpful throughout. Would be great if we can have more at the villages though, we didn't have time to sit down for lunch, had to grab a sandwich and walk around along the way.
Trip was excellent, guide had good knowledge of the area, was very friendly and likable. Would have liked the tour to include a Winery as this has been an essential part of Province since 1200. The trip is titled Province in one day so not including a Winery seems strange.
The tour could bring us an overview of the areas around Avignon which are very beautiful and nice. Tour was good and worthwhile.
Very good tour knowledgeable guide. I wish we had booked a tour that could go to fewer villages and give us more time with them.
needed more time in the town we stopped for lunch as there was a market and not enough time to browse the stalls. Guide was very good.
A full day but worth it to see the sites since we did not have a car - We did not like arriving at St. Remy on market day - way too crowded and no time to see the town. I enjoyed the Lavender Museum but my husband was not interested.
For those with a short amount of time in the Provence region, this trip is perfect. My wife and I initially wanted to rent a car. However, for 1.5 days it was too expensive. You essentially have a guide that takes you from amazing sight to sight without the worry of getting lost. My wife and I do wish we had more time in some of the villages, but again, this trip is designed to quickly see everything. If you can rent a car and have time, this tour is not necessary.
Pont du Gard was fantastic, Les Baux was fake and touristy like no one actually lived there, St Remy was nice for lunch, Roussillon was a real highlight, the view of Gordes was great but the town itself was boring. The lavender museum was really onlly of interest to those who like lavender. Wish we had gone to Menerbes instead of Les Baux. The tour guide was very passionate and knowledgeable, and kept us to our timetable very well.
We saw a lot, but I would have liked a little more description or information about areas along the way.
This was a great way to see some of the highlights of Provence without the hassle of trying to drive yourself. Our guide was a charming young woman who was very professional and knowledgeable. It was a long day, but we enjoyed all of it. I would definitely recommend this tour.
This is definitely worth doing to see the beautiful villages of Roussillon, Gordes, and Les Baux de Provence. I also loved the market at L'Isle sur la Sorgue on Sunday. It was a fabulous day and we could not have seen as much on our own. Our guide was very nice and informative.
Our guide was very informative and made everyone comfortable.
We took the whole day tour and enjoyed it for the most part. We did not tour Avignon other than by a drive through. A lot of uphill walking, and by the end of the day we were tired of tourist shops. The countryside was beautiful, and the towns are very pretty.
Very good. Tour guide was on time to get us at the hotel. Full of information and views of Provence.
The tour itself was terrific. It covered a lot of places of substantial interest and was quite comprehensive. I would have liked to have driven through Apt and Carpentras as we passed so close to these towns, but that's not a big deal. The downside was that the driver was inexperienced - the waterwheel at Tarascon was pointed out to us after we had passed it - and he was involved in a minor accident while driving too fast. With a different driver-commentator, the tour would be labelled fantastic.
The trip was well worth it. I would however, liked more time at Roussillon and less at the museum about lavender.
We saw many wonderful places - Gordes, Rousillon, Baux, Pont de Garde, the lavender stop. The route could have been planned a bit. Enter so that we didn't do so much backtracking. We went by the lavender museum four times. Also we visited one town to see the antiquities market which did not seem to be of much interest to anyone I our group of eight.
