Full description

A most wonderful morning spent visiting the Luberon highlights. We were expertly guided by Caroline, a very warm, friendly and professional guide. She shared lots of information about the locality and French culture. She was very attentive to all guests and included everyone in conversations as we drove to the villages. She gave us clear tips for visiting the villages and instructions to rendezvous pick ups. A very pleasurable experience and worth the cost. I recommend!

We decided on the spur-of-the-moment to take a half-day trip around Avignon to see the landscape and smaller villages. Small group (6 total), which make it easy to get to know everyone. Julian, our guide, was great at explaining the different areas we went through and gave us time at each stop to explore.

Wonderful!!!

The tour was wonderful! We liked the tour and the guide Anais so much that we decided to "stretch" for the afternoon tour that would be with the same guide. The very helpful guide Anais contacted the agency, which in turn authorized us to do the afternoon tour by paying directly to the guide, which made it much easier for us. It was an incredible tour and as Anais spoke Portuguese we can also interact and have important information about the region. We highly recommend it !!!
