    Tutto ha funzionato come un orologio svizzero: la nostra guida, la simpatica Florence, è stata estremamente professionale. Parla ottimi francese ed inglese, ed è stata anche una perfetta guidatrice. L'auto, una cross over Mercedes nuova, era estremamente comoda e pulita. Abbiamo imparato un sacco di cose nuove nel corso della nostra gita. Grazie, Florence!

    We really enjoyed the tour. But I found a problem of the voucher. We booked the tour on Dec. 4, 2019. We printed out the voucher from the confirmation email. However, there is nothing described about the meeting address or meeting hotel, a rough map was described, on the voucher. We visited the “putative” meeting place with the voucher a day before the tour in order to check the meeting place. But, we failed to find the meeting spot. Later, I found, from my PC in the hotel room, that the meeting address and Radisson Blue Hotel are described in the confirmation e-mail, but nothing was written on the voucher issued on Dec. 4. Remember the customer brings only the voucher with him/her, but does not bring printed email. The voucher must contain everything important. The night before the tour, I received reminder email of the tour. The new voucher described everything including the meeting address, but too late. It is impossible to print out the voucher in the hotel late night.

Superb day of visits in a friendly atmosphere with an extra guide who not only knows history very well but knows how to answer the most varied questions! The format of the activity is perfect (comfortable car, small group, walking balance and visit by car). I only had one day free and I feel like I have learned Provence very well! Thank you Alex for this beautiful day! Julie from Quebec

Aix en provence was beautiful ! After that we went go Cassis, this was magnificent! The view, the rest, the beach. We didn't make a boat trip, we swim in the sea and lay down in the sun on the beach. Natalie was our guide, she told us everything, shows a lot, it was very good! Even the time was not a problem, she scheduled very easy.

The local operator needs to get more manpower to transport the kayaks from the trailer to the water and back. Otherwise, lady guide was lovely. She was left alone with the guests to haul the kayaks. Not good.

Great trip, guide very flexible and helpful! Our guide was able to tell a lot and knew very well about our destinations! Top guide !!

A must see, however the departure should be earlier, for fall and winter to avoid darkness
