What You Can Expect

Luberon Villages Half-Day Tour from Aix-en-Provence

Walk around the quaint village of Roussillon in Provence

Leave Aix-en-Provence by air-conditioned minibus, and travel north to the gorgeous Luberon region with your guide. Embodying picturesque rural France at its finest, the area is awash with charming little hilltop hamlets and villages peppered around the hills – and you’ll see the best of them on your tour!

First stop is Lourmarin for a photo stop against the backdrop of Lourmarin Castle – Provence’s first Renaissance castle. Continue by minivan along the scenic river valley of Combe of Lourmarin, and then arrive in the neighboring village of Bonnieux. Spend time at leisure here, perhaps visiting its 12th-century church or relaxing in the shade of its century-old cedar trees.

Travel through more swathes of soft-hued countryside, passing a Roman arched bridge called Pont Julien, and then take a stroll through the village of Roussillon – known for its orange clay cliffs that are tinged from the soil’s rich ochre pigments.

Before returning to Aix, visit Gordes, a cliff-top village, to soak up its dramatic view. Head back to Aix and finish your tour at the start point in the early evening.

Very enjoyable. The tour guide Natalie was informative and fun. As an initial quick look at Provence it was excellent. It certainly puts me in mind to return. Everything went perfectly to time with no hitches. Thank you.

If you have no car in Aix, it's a great little get-away for an afternoon out of the city. Provence lives up to expectations.

Excellent tour would not have wanted to drive this route ourselves. We ended up with private guided tour for just the two of us. Excellent sites. I had researched much of the history before we did not get a full history lesson which we love.... Afternoon gave us best lighting and visibility for photo shoots. Our guide was delightful and showed us interested countryside info....sheep herder huts, wash basins along the route,etc. We love this kind of info This tour is essential if you are staying in Aix....not to be missed! We took Viator through Spain...we are never disappointed! Viator site easy to use... We ended up with the same tour company suggested by our bike tour rep, but their site was difficult to use and not it was a win-win situation! We will stick with Viator!

A perfect afternoon - we enjoyed to have time to walk aroun on our own after having been informed about the attractions of the villages. We are especially grateful to the guide. She was very enthusiastic, helpful and crucial for the great trip.

We had a wonderful guide, who was very knowledgeable, interesting and funny! We only wish we had been allowed a bit more time in the last village, skipping the initial castle we visited.

I am a Travel Advisor with my own travel agency. Our tour guide Rino made our entire trip! He was very informative, friendly, and interactive with me and my children. We will remember our tour for many years to come because of him.

This was a wonderful tour. Our guide, Lea, was charming, fun, and knowledgeable. We enjoyed every minute of the tour perhaps not the heat so much, but Lea had no control over that. I would highly recommend this tour. We would not have been able to do this tour ourselves, and these villages are definitely NOT to be missed!
