If you are limited in time, but on the other hand you really want to see Provence - this tour is the best choice for you. We visited all must see attractions in one day. We were at the couple wineries with tasting wines in the morning. Return back to Aix-en-Provence, have a lunch and the rest part of the day we were traveling all over Provence, visiting different small villages, lavender fields. We were at Lourmarin, Gordes, Bonniex, Roussillon, Abbaye Notre-Damme de Senanque - everything which I've read about before the trip. In short time we got brief expression of the Provence. Also special thanks to our driver Gregg, he is interested person, told a lot about Provence and villages we visited, explained what better to see in that villages.
The tour was a good taste of some of the more popular sites in Provence. It was a treat and a time saver to have a knowledgeable driver familiar with routes and access to sites. Our group was a mixture of French and English which the guide diligently tried to handle but it left no time for in-depth discussions including history etc. We found the time spent at each site sufficient and the in between driving not begrudged due to our less than perfect weather conditions. One word of caution is lunch options are poor. A packed snack would have been better.
This was a brilliant morning excursion. Greg, our guide, was fun and interesting and very knowledgeable about the area and wine. Both vineyards we visited were interesting for different reasons and we sampled many wines ...hic! I would highly recommend this trip - it is a nice small group and comfortable vehicle too.
Thank you Noelle for the tour! We visited two amazing wineries and learned so much about France. It was a great tour and a highlight of our trip! I would recommend tacking this tour to anyone interested in seeing the wine region.
This tour was one of the best of our 3 week trip to France. Nicholas was friendly, knowledgeable and did not rush. Thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Aix-en-Provence!
