Amazing trip and a beautiful day through the small villages. Our guide stopped to see some of the lavender fields at our expressed interest. Our guide was also very attentive, kind, and informative. Great day trip... small shops, quaint villages, antiques and flea market, beautiful views.

This was a tour that was well worth the money, Guide Benjamin was fun, informative, and flexible. Lavender had been harvested the day before our trip ,but he went out of his way to find one for us and to take our pictures. Number of villages and timimimg at stops was very good. Just a perfect day!

This was the absolute most beautiful day. I traveled to France for my 30th birthday alone and this was the tour I chose for my actual birthday. I have never experienced such beautiful sights, and we saw a quaint street market where I made several purchases for myself and for souvenirs. I recommend this tour to everyone who considers France!

Our guide arrived punctually at the pick-up point. She explained where we going and what we would see at Isle-sur-la Sorgue, the Lavender Museum, Gordes, Roussillon and Lourmarin. Her English was good and she would answer any question posed during the day. At every location she would drop us off, allowing us time to explore at our own pace, and then she would pick us up at a pre-arranged time.

We had started early, 8am on a Sunday, to visit the market at Sorgue. Both the antique and produce markets were interesting as well as the many water wheels on the water channels running through the town. Our tip is to amble through the antique and bric-a-brac markets and then go to the Tourist Office where you can get a free local map which shows a scenic walking tour of the town. We only discovered this by chance and managed only part of the route.

Gordes is a small picturesque village perched on a cliff. We stopped just outside at a viewpoint to take pictures. Our tip is to buy a take away sandwich from the shop at the entrance to the village you can eat it at the tables outside the shop.

The ochre quarry at Rousillon is spectacular, which our guide
recommended, and you will have just enough time to do the short Ochre Trail.

The whole day was excellent.

Great trip and Cedric was a great guide - good humoured and unflappable despite having to cope with horrendous traffic jams resulting from a forest fire, and having to rearrange our schedule. He really went the extra mile for us - literally - to make sure we were all happy! Thank you cedric for a great day.

Our guide, Violet, was great. Very knowledgeable of the towns and the history. The views were amazing and we had just enough time to see everything we wanted to without feeling rush. A great day.

Great day trip! The markets at Isle sur la Sorgue were amazing and I only wish I didn't have a limit on what I can take with me on my flight back home. Gordes, the Abbey, and Roussillon were also amazing, and it was great to have someone who knows the area to take us to these places and give us a little background/orientation before we got to wander around on our own. Cedric, our guide, was very friendly, knowledgable and enthusiastic about the area.

The tour met all my expectations and your descriptions of what we were to see as far as driving thru and stopping to view and poke around were spot on. Many times what you read and think you are going to see and experience are 2 different things which result in disappointment. I was happy that this was not the case.

The guide was lovely and was always prompt and explicit about where we were to meet up. She knew the area well and gave us a lot of background information. The car was immaculate. I would book again with Viator. Thank you for a lovely day.

With the Luberon day tour we had such a great time with the tour guide, besides, the other people had cancelled and it was just my wife and me. The agency was Agencia Provence Tours the tour guide was Granier Laurent better known as Paco as a matter of fct i wrote the agency giving Paco a very good commendation he really-really deserved it. He was funny, extremely serviceable, very knowledgable, polite and he went above and beyond for us to have a good time. The villages visited all four in total were a paradise each one in its own way. The scenery out of this world and the knowledge we received that day was excellent. Overall it was an excellent day. Again Viator knows how to pick it's agencies.

Reno was a gracious and knowledgable guide. Beautiful villages, each unique, with lots of free time for wandering and sampling regional food and wine and historic locales. Friendly fellow travelers in our small (5) group.

Fabulous day. Thank you Viator. Our tour guide Marina is an angel and went out of her way to give us information and help with things we were interested in. I truly wish all tour guides were "marinas". Would make life wonderful. A great day to remember. Thank you

Just fantastic. Our guide was great. Very friendly and knowledgeable. We visited spots that would have been quite tricky had we tried on our own. The tour itself was also a nice mix of photo stops and time in the towns and surrounding areas. The Luberon proved to be a perfect day trip from Marseille for us. We'll definitely be looking for similar opportunities on future trips!

Nice trip. Beautiful villages. Especially Gordes and Roussillon are nice villages. I would recommend doing this trip in the second half of June because of the lavender fields. Note, however, that the villages have cobblestone streets that are rather steep (not fit for disabled people)
