Exploring aix Provence
Oct. 2019
It was a lovely experience using your services. The tour operator/ driver (Greg) was a professional, amiable, and pleasant person with in-depth knowledge of his work. Also, he speaks English fluently, a rare phenomenon in France. I highly recommend this agency for trips, and, inevitably, I will use their services in the future.
P.s1 A comment for this trip. I suggest making this trip on spring as you will see all the fields flourish.
P.s 2 Thank you, Greg, for the charging cable.

Oct. 2019 • Friends
Though it’s not the best season to visit, but the tour is really nice. Our guide was Greg, who is really a knowledgeable guide and very nice person. So all together I would recommend this trip, but when the lavenders are in full bloom, it could be a perfect day out.

Visit lavanda fields and Moustiers Sainte-Marie
Jun. 2018 • Couples
I must confess that I was quite disappointed with this excursion (and two other similar excursions that I booked simultaneously at the Aix Tourist Office) because the only service that is provided in a van and a driver. I assumed that the driver was also a guide but it is not so: he/she drives you to some point, gives you one hour to visit it and you do the visit by yourself. Since I was expecting to be accompanied by a guide I did not bring any guide in book form with me so the interest of the visits was much reduced. The excursions are too expensive for what is done. You do better renting a car with GPS and drive to the places you want to visit yourself.

Dear Rui V, We thank you for your feedback. All our tours are organized to allow our tourists to experience the beautiful villages, monuments in a day as most of them have only one or two days in the region. During the drive, the tour guide gives information about the region and the places you will visit, and leaves the customers for them to enjoy their visit on their own. We are sorry if it did not reach your expectations and apologise for any inconvenience caused. We take your feedback very seriously as it will help us improve the quality of our services of our future tours. Regards

We started the day in Manosque to tour the L'Occitane factory which I wanted to see very much as I love their products made from Occitane herbs and flower essences. Good tour, interesting, not too much time. Onto Moustier St-Marie - spectacular, small village where we could have easily spent much more time. Greg gave us a good tip to tell restaurant we are on a tour with limited time. They suggested a couple meals that could be enjoyed quickly and we had a fantastic lunch at Les Tables du Cloitre and could still explore the village. Thank you Greg! He was very knowledgable on lavender and the fields, and all areas we visited - great tour guide. Onto Verdun Gorge which pictures do not do it justice by far. Astounding views as you approach, from above and also from the bridge. Beautiful place to return to in future. Really good day.
