We had a fantastic day. The driver-guide was very informative and accommodating. I had been waiting to see tge lavender fields for years as I love the South of France and Provence. It was everything I had envisaged and much MUCH MORE! Many thanks for a wonderful trip.
The guide is professional, and the trip is really worth it for value.
We had an amazing time and our guide was wonderful! I would recommend this trip to anyone traveling to France and looking to make the experience extra special.
Great scenery, great guide. A chance to see a Provence village, take great photos, enjoy a market stop all in one day. Comfortable van and accommodating service in Avignon.
Our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and flexible. We thoroughly enjoyed him and the tour.
I wanted to give this tour 5 stars, and it was very good, the guide Melani went out of her way to ensure we visited some great lavender fields. However, for me personally there was a very big disappointment, that we didn't visit the Senanque Abbey, as per the iconic picture on the website, and as per the itinerary. I had actually been spurred on to book the holiday to Provence, at the early part of July, and take this tour, in order that I would be able to see this specific, beautiful vista. When I booked via the website, the tour info was very specific about the dates that they would visit the Senanque Abbey, 15th June to 15th July only so I booked within that period. When I got on the tour and specifically asked when we would be going to Senanque Abbey, the guide told me that the lavender had been pulled up this year in front of the Abbey, so, if I insisted on going she would take us, but that actually there was nothing to see in the way of lavender there! I had to agree that there was no point, and no on else wanted to go under those circumstances either. I felt that knowing this was the case, the local tour company should not have used this iconic picture on the Viator website, and it should not have been in the itinerary that it was to be visited. Very misleading and for me personally very disappointing. But you cannot take away from the beauty of the lavender, and the sunflowers. That was worth seeing.
Sorry for delay in review. Great tour great day. Francoise (sp?) was lovely and did a good job - felt sorry for her having to try talk over 2 very rude constantly talking guests in the front seat which meant it was difficult for the others of us to hear Francoise talking. Felt the day was just a little bit rushed, however there was a lot to fit in and we had to keep on the move. Pick-up was exactly on time and the vehicle was perfect for our sized group. No complaints (except for rudeness and lateness of several of the other travellers which is outside Viator's control!!)
Very nice views. Time free at all points. In Senanque I think it could be have a litle more time free.
Robin was super friendly and informative. He told us stories and background of the towns. We definitely enjoyed our day out with him. One suggestion for improvement...As it was our first time in those towns (Roussillon and Gordes) that we got dropped off, it's probably worth the extra 15 mins to show us around before free time.
Beautiful lavender fields! It would have been nice to have more time at the Abbeye de Senanque and the towns (Gordes and Sault). Perhaps skipping one of the fields so we can have more time for the other sites would be better.
Lovely tour! Have seen lots of Lavender fields as we expected!

The trip is wonderful as it took us to some beautiful lavender fields. The tour guide was friendly and helpful. The only thing needs to improve is the trip was a bit rush and we did not have enough time to take photo and shop!
