Excellent tour. Cannot praise our guide too highly for her in depth knowledge and attention to detail, and her efforts to ensure that we had a wonderful day. Her personality was outstanding. Many thanks.
Viator contacted the provider of this tour for me to ask if we could do it as a shore excursion from a cruise ship. They agreed to pick us up at the ship, change the start and end times of the tour, and personalize the day's itinerary. Then we found out 24 hours before the tour was to begin that our ship would be docking at a different port due to weather. We were relieved to find that they would simply meet us at the new port. That was easy!
But the new port was an extra hour away and we had to back at the ship before 4:00, so our guide suggested that we go to Aix and Cassis since they were closer than the listed places. That worked out great, since we were much happier strolling around the towns instead of spending the time driving. She gave us an interesting walking tour of Aix and showed us a collection of restaurants from which we picked one that served an excellent lunch. Cassis was charming and picturesque.
We learned a lot about Provence from our guide, who spoke very good English and knew the area well. Although we did not see the places we originally expected, we appreciated the flexibility that gave us a good day in Provence despite the change in port.
