Silvan was the perfect driver! He met us at the cruise terminal on time and drove us to Aix-en-Provence which is a feast for the eyes. From there we went to the lavender fields which were a feast for the senses. So beautiful and they go on for miles and miles.
Our guide Brian was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our Aix en Provence and Lavander fields tour! Aix is beautiful, we hope to return someday.
The tour through Aix-en-Provence was a nice stroll through the city highlighted by a church tour that just happened to have a choir singing inside. It was one of the coolest things we were able to see on our trip. Then we went out to the lavender fields and the town of Valensole, all of which were beautiful. We had a great baguette lunch in the market and couldn't have asked for a better guide than Sylvain. He was very knowledgeable and spoke great English. This was a perfect relaxing tour with plenty of sights to see. We enjoyed every minute of it.
Our guide, Vicki, was fabulous. She explained the history of the city and stayed with us the entire time. On Tuesdays and Saturdays there is a flea market and she gave us ample time to wander about. We stopped for a coffee and croissant mid-morning and didn't need lunch. Off to the lavender fields which were spectacular. A most comfortable vehicle. A most enjoyable day.
