Our guide Alex was AMAZING! I have been to Avignon before, but brought my husband back and the trip was so much more enjoyable, because of our guide. We learned so much and had such a wonderful time. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone that visits either Aix or Marseilles- request Alex as your guide. It is hard for us to come up for a suggestion on how it could be improved.

Professional guide, but would have preferred more time in the delightful villages, the time allowed was too short. Avignon for 2 hours was too long given we were left to our own devices, would have been a much more enjoyable to spend time in the villages. Also, is there really a need to visit the lavender outlet, this was not noted in the itinerary and also was not of interest to many of us on the tour.

Good trip. But we dont' like Fontaine de Vaucluse we stay too long. Nothing interesting. Trip doesnt' follow all program such as : paper mill, caves, church or Saint Firmin Palace. Guide disappear after drop us, we should have phone number or line to tell something such as , we won't stay long here, let us drive to another place. Guide is handsome Alex, we love him.

Fantastic tour. It is well paced and gives the opportunity to travel through the beautiful Provence region. You visit a number of towns and plenty of free time is allocated in each town. The views and scenary are amazing. It a small tour group and our tour guide Lucille was fantastic and pleasant!

Our special tour of Avignon and Luberon was with our chauffeur and guide, Lucille. Both beauty and brains, Lucille just finished her studies in Aix-en-Provence. On that very windy the mistral day in Avignon, Lucille managed to give us an extensive background of Pont du Avignon, Palais de Papes, and other highlights about Avignon. From there, we drove to the magnificent mountain village of Gordes and saw its limestone-built homes. We had lunch at Fontaine de Vaucluse, made famous by the humanist Petrarque and its crystal clear spring waters. Then we had our first experience of seeing lavender fields at the Abbaye de Senanque where we bought some lavande and lavandin products including the lavande miel lavender honey! Next stop was in the beautiful village of Roussillon, also known as the Colorado of Provence with its massive natural ocre formations. And the last but not the least, Lucille brought us to Lourmarin, to remember A Year in Provence by Peter Mayle. What a full and memorable day it was! And which part did we like the most? You will need to experience it to know the answer.
