What people are saying about Lake of Sainte-Croix

It's a great trip.

I was a great combination of a learning experience and beautiful nature. Although I would prefer spending more time at the Canyon Verdon and the lake, I also enjoyed the visit to the L'Occitane factory. It was an interesting experience to see how the products are developed and manufactured. I would definitely recommend this trip. The best is to do this trip in June because there are plenty of lavender fields around which were unfortunately already harvested when I took the tour.

It was the best. Verdon Gorge is not famous in Japan, but it was a really wonderful place. The village of Moustiers-Saint-Marie was also very unique and fun, and I had enough time to go sightseeing. But after all, the guide is very nice. He was knowledgeable and told me a lot of fun stories while driving.

Magnificent view

The guide is humorous and the trip is fun. Verdon canyon is especially amazing but we met a thunderstorm there. Hence, had no chance for the boat ride. Not really interested for L'Occitane factory visit. If we could opt out of the visit or replace with wine tour, it may be more fun for us.

Perfekt day.

For the Verdun Gorges could have been a bit more time , to enjoy this wonderful scenery. Better without perfume. Our travel guide Natalie did a good Job.

Fantastic guide and Loved her friendliness.

Interesting tour with fantastic views. Wld b better if the lavenders are still in bloom
