Met the nicest people. Our tour guide was great. On this particular tour, in the morning the tour goes out to the wineries. Then you're dropped back to Aix for lunch. We'd bonded with a couple of young Brits on the tour and had lunch with them. Our other companions only took the first part of the tour, so after lunch, the remainder of the Luberon excursion to the villages was just the four of us. Wonderful time.
I had an absolutely amazing time on this trip!!!! Florence was my tour guide and she was wonderful. We experienced 2 wineries, the red mountains of Roussillon, the shops and sites of Lourmarin and Gordes, one of the most beautiful villages of France. This trip is a must for anyone visiting the Provence region. 5 stars!!!
Absolutely brilliant. Perfect size of group, only 5 people in the morning for the vineyard tours and wine tasting and then 7 in the afternoon for the luberon villages. Our tour guide Remy was excellent, very friendly and knowledgable and really enthusiastic!
The trip was good. Many aspects were interesting. Matt, our tour guide, was warm and inviting, and always willing to answer questions. The afternoon part of the trip was somewhat strange. We stopped in Aix for a 20-minute lunch brake, which was rushed. We were then taken to three villages in the Lubéron. In each village, we were given 1-1.5 hours to explore the town. It would have made so much more sense to have a more relaxed lunch in one of these villages. The main activity in these towns was to walk around and shop. More time was allotted to each one than necessary. They were fairly touristy, despite being old and quaint. Different scheduling would have allowed us to see more, eat a leisurely lunch, and shop less if we didn't want to....
Absolutely outstanding! We visited two wineries with guided tastings at each. We toured several of the local villages/towns. Greg was very attuned to the needs and desires of our group. He pointed out highlights and key sights for each town and was patient as we explored. My daughter and I would definately go on this tour again. This was our second tour with Greg as a guide - he was very insightful and openly shared information and local cultural insights. He is also a very good camera man. He helped us capture some great pics and took several of us together.
Enjoyed the day. The Luberon village tour made for a fantastic experience. Loved all three villages, especially Gordes, because it's so unique. It was fun to see the wineries, grapes, understand how Rose is made. It such a quaint drive through Provence. Natalie was our tour guide and I can't say enough great things about her. She knows the area, has lots of facts and stories to share, is funny, and made the day a grand adventure. Our tour group was four people which also made for a fun experience. I'd recommend this day experience.
This tour is the perfect way to capture the essence of this area of Provence in a day. I had been to the region several times previously, but finally got my wife to come over with me - so decided to give this tour a try. It did not disappoint! In fact, I learned a few things from our guide Remy that I did not know from my previous visits. It's a nice, intimate setting - there were just eight of us in a very comfortable coach. In fact we bonded so well that during the free time on our last stop we all just visited an outdoor cafe and shared drinks - now THAT is how to experience France :- It's a good balance of guided tour and free time - so if you have just the day available this is a great way to pack in a lot of what Provence has to offer.
