This trip was such great value! The driver kept us informed and amused with his stories and information during our drive. We were able to walk through the lavender which was such a joy. Seeing the still rustic and traditional 'processing' building felt like a step back int time.
So worth it, in fact i would do it again.
Remi did a splendid job as our guide. He presented interesting information, took us to lavender farms, a beautiful Abby, and 2 gorgeous villages. The scenery en route was just amazing! Great way to see Provence in 5 hours.
I have offered this trip to my sister as a gift while she was visiting several cities in Provence. She loved Provence, but this trip is, she said, the absolute highlight of the whole stay. She says that the guide Nicholas was the coolest guy ever, putting all the participants at their ease telling a lot of interesting facts about lavender and the region and wine and traditions etc etc.
The trip was also very well organized in terms of time and places visited.
Thank you for making this present a very good one!
Excellent tour. Our tour representative was very informative and knowledgeable. He went out of his way to show us things of interest and was amenable when we requested a stop in Sault, knew where all the best lavender fields were and even though he must have taken so many photos of lavender fields for tourists he took them for us with no sign of boredom. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip, made even better by good company and pleasant driver.
We have enjoyed the tour very much. Our guide, Jean Paul, was very competent and entertaining. During the tour he provided us with exiting facts related to the past and present of this beautiful part of France, without letting us being overwhelmed.
The tour was well structured and with timely departure and arrival. The van for eight passengers was very comfortable and air conditioned, which was especially pleasant on a hot summer day.
We took ahold a day trip. Armed with this experience we are looking forward to coming back and taking a longer at least one day tour, which would allow us to to spend more time enjoying the lavender fields and charming villages.
I LOVED this tour! It was amazing to see the lavender fields in their glory. We also stopped and saw a couple of towns. Our tour guide recommended that we try lavender ice cream- it was delicious! My only caution would be that if you are also taking the Provence grand tour there is some overlap between sites.
The lavender fields were beautiful, as were the villages of Gordes and Roussillon. Absolutely picture-perfect! The guide was very nice and very informative. I do want to point out though that, even though our confirmation had the pickup location as our hotel, no one picked us up there. Our hotel called the tour company and they told us we were supposed to go to the Hotel de Ville. Luckily, it was only 50 meters away, otherwise we could have missed the whole tour. Another detail is that the description said that the afternoon tour included a visit of the museum in Coustellet but the tour guide said that was not included. Ok by us because we didn't have our hearts set on going to the museum, but this may be important for other travelers. Oh, and the visit of Gordes is not really a visit but rather a photo stop standing on the outskirts of it. Undoubtedly the prettiest picture you can take of the village, but still, it should be pointed out to travelers in the tour description that you don't actually go inside the village. In spite of all this, this tour still merits the 5 star because it is an amazing excursion.
I really enjoyed this amazingly beautiful tour.
The knowledgeable and friendly tour conductor made the tour more enjoyable.
It was very nice. We have really enjoyed it.
The area, the villages the lavender fields are amazing
We really enjoyed this tour. Even this is at the end of the Lavender season, but we got to see the harvest, the distill process and especially smelled the nice fragrant in the field.
Even though it was very late in the season, our driver took us right to fields of still-blooming lavender. We learned a lot from our driver, not only about lavender, but about Provence In general. I highly recommend this tour.
Our guide was awesome, he knew very much about the history and agriculture in the area, which I liked very much.
This tour is an excellent way to see the lavender fields. It's much easier than driving yourself as the guide knew exactly where to go to find the fields which were in flower at that time, meaning there were lots of photo opportunities. He was very knowledgeable, telling us all about the different types of lavender and the distillation process. It was also interesting to be able to visit the farm where they extract the lavender oil. The transport was comfortable and air conditioned and we were collected from right outside the hotel. The morning tour is a good choice to avoid the afternoon heat.
It was a perfect day and a perfect time to visit the lavender fields. We saw lavender that was blooming, recently harvested and the sheaves of harvested lavender. The tour guide knew all about the lavender as well as the sights on the trip to the lavender fields.
Had so much fun and saw gorgeous flowers! The trip was nice and small, and I was able to take some beautiful pictures!
Our guide Julien was very helpful, nice, funny and knowledgeable of the area. He took us to the best looking lavender fields, and even made a photo stop in Gordes even though it wasn't on his list. He was also very helpful in giving tips about other places to visit in Avignon and the tour was very agreeable.
The tour was wonderful! The guide was personable, knowledgeable and very friendly. The countryside and towns beautiful and the lavender museum unique!
Erica did a great job of balancing time in the lavender fields and time in the village market in Gordes. The fields were beautiful and she provided thorough descriptions of the history of the region and of the lavender growing process. Highly recommend!

It was very nice tour. Loved the lavender fields and the distillery was very interesting. Would definitely recommend this tour to lavender lovers.
Due to the lavender season being early in 2015 a lot of the fields had already been harvested when we were there but our guide, Julien, took us to two fields which were still blooming and beautiful - one of which had a spectacular view of the village of Aurel as a backdrop.
We had a half hour stop in the village of Sault just long enough to buy some lavender based gifts at a better price than we would have found them in Avignon.
As we had not hired a car during our stay in Avignon, this tour gave us the opportunity to see some of the countryside and mountains in the area.
