This was a fantastic tour--it was so great to relax in a van and be driven around to and around the lavender fields! Our guide, Greg, was very entertaining and informative and worked really hard to find good fields and to help us get great pictures we were there toward the end of the season, so a lot of the lavender was already cut. We even got to see the cutting of the lavender, which was great. Greg was very flexible, telling us it was our tour and he would take us where we wanted. Highly recommended experience!

Wonderful tour. Excellent guide. Very knowledgeable and a totally pleasant day. Everything we expected and more!
This is a must see. Tour guide was excellent and very knowledgable. We will be back some say.
The tour is worth going and highly recommended. We visited 4 different lavender fields and took a lot of great pictures. The tour also included visiting Moustiers, Verdon Gorge and Lake of St. Croix. Our guide, Sarah is prefessional and nice!
Sarah was our guide and she was absolutely the best! The tour was so worth it we got to go to 4 different lavender fields, the Verdon Gorge, Moustiers, and a few more places. I definitely will take this tour again because it was just stunning.
A multi-sensory experience: color, the sounds of bees and the smell of lavender. Truly, a "bucket-list" tour. My only problem was that the AC in the van was not working well as we began our trip. I would encourage the tour operator to make sure the vans are in good working order and that the tour guides know how to operate all aspects of the van. It got pretty tense when the air was stifling, but the tour operator pulled out the auto guide and was able to finagle the AC to begin cooling.
A lot of post-card-views of best time blossoming lavender fields, Verdon and lakes. A lot of thanks to Florence - our guide, with her very gentle and kind attitide to tourist constantly loosing themselves in the lavender beauty!
Actually, i was a little bit disappointed about lavender. But the lake and Moustiers town gave me a big surprise. The town is the kind of place that i always want to go: peaceful, lovely, relaxing. And the lake is amazing! The color of that lake is a kind of pure blue.
Even though it was too early to see the full effects of the lavender fields Ranauld did a great job making up for it by going out if his way for us to enjoy the poppy fields. Enjoyable even though not much lavender to view.
Wonderful tour, we were lucky with great weather and the lavender fields were in bloom. It's not much of a tour meaning not a lot of history/explaining of sites/ etc, but more of a transportation between beautiful locations. And they are BEAUTIFUL. The town we ate lunch at, Moustiers, was probably one of the most beautiful towns I've ever seen in any country. I'm not sure why we stopped at the town before that it paled in comparison, and it would have been nice to see more of Moustiers or the gorge.
The gorge is breathtaking, but we only stopped along the road for a few minutes to see it you don't actually go down near the water. And then we moved on to a cafe on the other side of the lake. Would have loved more time there instead of the first village stop.
All in all, beautiful day tour with lots of driving. Bring water and get ready to shop!
The places speak for themselves, but the tour was really short, the tour guide didn and #39;t speak or explain things - we had to ask almost everything. To expensive for the tour - don and #39;t do it or look for other companies. The best hung is to rent a car and do it by yourself - the and #34;guided and #34; tour is a driver
The guide does give us good commentary , but he keep rushing and hurrying us along from spot to spot, saying we have lots to cover, and little time.
He tried to bring us to the loccitane factory, good initiative as it is not in the schedule, but poor information as the factory is not open on Sunday and he only know after actually arriving there. Again, I expect him to know better as the guide.
the tour was supposed to be 5 hours and in the end, it finish at 4 hours. he could have time manage it better and make it feel more leisurely. Instead I felt rushed and cheated off that one hour.
Not recommended unless all the other tours is fully booked like what happened to us. Frankly, the sense that I get is the guide is newbie in doing tour guide.
