Amazing day in cassis from Aix with our tour guide and a fun crew of people we met on the tour. The drive to cassis and from Cassis went by so fast with our livelyconversations , the boat ride to the Calanques was breathtaking, )the boat driver did most talking in fresh but he let us Americans in on the highlights in English). Great walk through the town afterwards without tour guide leading the way and explaining some History. , lunch near the port and then the bonus of a wine tasting in our way back. Wear comfortable shoes!

It was a great tour with a great guide. There was plenty of time to look around each village. The villages were beautiful and we could stop in the photo zone and take pictures. Our guide knew history so well that he could answer all the various questions. I had to take a car for about 2 hours, but the guide's history story was interesting, so it was not boring and fun.

We had a marvellous day exploring these beautiful villages carved into the Luberon mountains. Expect breath-taking views, lovely churches, cafes and restaurants and some colourful geological landscapes. Greg drove us round (rather him than me) and conducted the tour with impressive knowledge and good humour.

Love it! The 3 little towns are gorgeous and so different from one another. The only thing I would have made me love it even more is to do it in July with the lavender!

Our guide was wonderful. We had free time to wander around and have lunch on our own. Guide was very knowledgeable.
