What people are saying about Avignon
Veronica is very friendly, informative and funny, and also an excellent driver! The trip includes four beautiful villages - Vaucluse, Gorde, Rousillon and Menerbes, plus Notre Dame de Senanque Abbey which is famous for its lavender fields in summer (went there in September thus not in bloom, but still it was stunning and tranquil). These four villages are well picked because they show different sides of Luberon, Provence, and also each one is quite small so the time Veronica reserved for each village was quite enough for strolling around and taking some cool pictures.
If you like wine this is a must to try. Christian was an amazing and patient guide and he took extra time for us at the end to explain why Châteauneuf du Pape is unique in its way-it is made out of 13 different grapes. Plus he told us some funny local stories of the Pope which added an extra smiles to the trip. We saw 2 wine producers and got some wine tasting lesson to compare the wines between each other. You could understand better why wine is important in the French culture. It is a whole science behind it. Warmly recommend it.
Our guide picked us up on time and took us to firstly Arles where vince van gogh lived most of his life and also later in St. Remy where he was in his asilum. He guided us to some of the main attractions in arles and told us many interesting facts about the history, why arles was the capital of Provence etc. We had a lot of free time also to explore the city by ourselfs afterwords. It just has an amazing vibe and you get the idea why Vincent stayed here to create his work.
We had a fantastic day exploring the best sites/towns in Provence with an equally fantastic tour guide. Sylvia was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to see the highlights of this region.
Nico was a fantastic guide and provided so much information (and wine!) during our half day tour. We really enjoyed our tour and our only regret was that we didn’t book a full day tour.
