We thoroughly enjoyed our day in the Provence countryside. Thank you.

Our guide, Ginny (Virginia), was very friendly and informative. She made the journeys in between the locations fun and was very happy to answer questions etc. Each location was worth stopping at although it would have been nice to have longer in the village near the Quarry of Lights. But overall it was very enjoyable and we are glad we signed up.

Great tour, perfect taste of Provence. Our guide was very knowledgeable and provided advice and answered questions throughout. Perfect time distribution among the sites, if only there was more time in the day! Made a great day-trip from Marseille, not too early and also returned in time to find some dinner.

Our guide was just amazing, his name was Djilani!! Luxury BWM, very nice, clean and pristine. He was wonderful and from the moment we met him we knew we were going to have a great time. I would highly recommend him as we did another today, also very nice but it was a different type of tour.

it was our first tour using this site, so we didn't know what to expect, but the guide was very nice, trip destinations were better than expected and it is a good way to get to know provance in a short period of time
