We had a great time. Moustiers Ste-Marie was such a beautiful little village with a little shopping for mom and hiking for the kids. The gorges was amazing, the lavender fields so serene. If you'd like a getaway day to see the countryside and mountains of provence, this tour is the perfect choice.

This day trip was fantastic. The visit and tour of the LOccitane factory started a number of great experiences. Moustiers-Saint-Marie is a very pretty village in which to enjoy lunch. The Verdon Gorge is vast and very impressive. Having a quiet drink in a bar overlooking the lake was a perfect way to complete the day before returning to Aix-en-Provence. Thanks to Valerie we had a delightful day.

Great tour visiting L'Occitaine factory and learning the history of Olivier and his discovery? Had lunch in Moustiers. Charming town. One of the prettiest I've seen. We left the best for last - the Vernon Gorge. Magnificent views! Excellent day trip from Aix. Natalie was a super guide - well informed and she is made it a fun day.

The tour to Moustiers Ste-Marie and the Verdon Gorge exceeded my expectations. Our guide, Renaud, was wonderful--informative, enthusiastic, and good-natured. It was a day of spectacular landscapes with picturesque villages scattered throughout. The trip to l'Occitane factory was also interesting, although I might have preferred to have more time in the village. After my experience on this tour, I wouldn't hesitate to book another trip with the local tour company.

Really wonderful tour, highlight of my trip and definitely worth the money! Good guide, knowledgable and did not feel rushed.
Moustiers was charming, it is worth walking up to the Chapel for the view. Verdon Gorge and the lake were both beautiful and we even saw the lavender fields. Great day !
