What an experience, it was heaven!
We had the best day on this tour with our guide Natalie. The transportation was comfortable and ample time was given at each stop. We really enjoyed the amazing scenery and got some exceptional photos!
Great tour to the lavender fields. Our driver took us to spots around the fields that maximized out opportunities for great pictures. Highly recommended!
Greg was our guide. Excellent guy, very knowledgeable, flexible and fun. The tour destinations were fantastic, and the small group of people on my trip were very nice also.
Just do it.
Fairly easy to get to the meeting point even if you're coming from Nice like what I did 2 1/2 hour flixbus ride. The meeting point, which is the Apple store is in the center of town by the big fountain and the market, is rather easy to get to. You get into a big van and the guide takes you an hour outside of Aix first to the L'Occitane factory then to two lavender fields. The second one includes sunflowers! The final stop is a small French village in Provence which feels a world's away from the hustle and bustle of Aix and the Riviera. The biggest disappointment in my opinion was that the lavender is not everywhere like you'd expect. It's a crop like corn. My biggest annoyance was when some of the group members and the guide kept discussing politics in the van. This was rather inappropriate as I didn't sign up for this tour to hear about politics, I signed up for lavender. Finally on a positive note, Victorine, our tour guide, was very prompt in returning us back to the meeting which I appreciate since I had a tight connection in terms of using trains to return to Nice.
This tour was absolutely amazing. Nathalie was a magnificent guide who explained everything to us and took us to some amazing lavender fields and a distillery. We also stopped at Luberon, Sault and Monieux. Breathtaking views. We had a great lunch in Sault and everyone was friendly. Enjoyed lavender ice cream and cocktails. The prices in Provence are very reasonable. Take cash as the small towns do not accept cards. If you have the opportunity to visit the lavender fields, please do. One of a kind experience. Bees buzzing everywhere in the fields. Beautiful nature experience. Comfortable van.
The tour was wonderful and especially our driver-guide Natalie. It was a dream come true to visit the lavender fields!
My only criticism is that the last village stop in Monieux should be dropped to allow more time in Sault for a leisurely lunch and more time to shop.
Beautiful lavender. Guide was very knowledgeable about lavender types and distillery process.
I had a great time at the All day tour to valensole to the lavender fields,
I loved this tour! It was my favourite thing in Aix en Provence. Our tour guide was lovely, very chatty and knowledgeable. It was a small group of 8, perfect size. We went to two different lavender fields and a lovely old village, the fields are absolutely beautiful and made for some great photo ops. I would definitely recommend this tour.
