What people are saying about Lourmarin

the activity was replaced by the Arles, les Baux et Remy de provence tour. it was more an “markets” tour, I thought it would be more a visit of the interesting places in each of these towns. two hours in les Baux is really too much as it is more a tourist trap than anything else, in St Remy we didn’t see the hospital where Van Gogh has been, I though we would be able to visit it from the inside. All in all an enjoyable day

It was an amazing excursion with a great guide. He knows a lot about the region so the explanations about history, nature etc were very interesting. The spots we visited (villages in the Luberon) are difficult to be reached by the public transportation. The guided tour deserves to be paid.

Such an amazing tour with a fabulous guide. Remy was full of brilliant knowledge and made the tour fun. The villages are so idyllic and picturesque, I would definitely recommend this tour and the guide. Overall great experience. -Leah
