Luberon, Roussillon & Gordes Half-Day Tour from Avignon
The guide Gordona was amazing and very knowledgeable. The tour is one of our best highlights for our France trip and it is best suited for those who want to see sceneries from postcards. Everything was great and worth every penny!

Luberon, Roussillon & Gordes Half-Day Tour from Avignon
This may be my favourite half day tour we did from Avignon! The villages are all unique, but Roussiillon, with is varied ochre colours, especially so. Don’t miss the nougat shop - the nougat flavoured with black truffle is exceptional! Our guide Gordana was fantastic - knowledgeable, helpful, and with a real passion for the region.

Luberon, Roussillon & Gordes Half-Day Tour from Avignon
All the villages we visited are beautiful- worth a visit. Even though it is bit early in the season and shops were closed but it didn’t detract from the overall ambiance of each village.7

Luberon, Roussillon & Gordes Half-Day Tour from Avignon
Gordon’s was a fabulous tour guide. She was extremely knowledgeable of the area and very expressive with her language and story telling. Our group loved spending the day with her and seeing all the towns and villages she showed us. We also want her to start traveling with us. We had a great time.

Luberon, Roussillon & Gordes Half-Day Tour from Avignon
Our guide, Gordana, clearly excels in her field. In fact, both my daughter and I came to the same conclusion, which is that Gordana is so adept in her delivery (in our case, in English) that she could very well be on radio or television. She also is extremely vivacious, which was very effective in dispelling our lingering jet lag. No dozing on her tours! Her knowledge of local lore and ancient/medieval history is superb. As for the sites themselves: they are beyond description and even my photos do them no justice. In short, I highly recommend this half-day tour of the Luberon region.

Luberon, Roussillon & Gordes Half-Day Tour from Avignon
Gordona was the most wonderful tour guide! She was so gorgeous and informative and we learnt so much from her! As it ended up just being the two of us, she was sooo accommodating and really gave us a personal insight into the Luberon Valley. We had such wonderful conversations on the way and adored every single second!
