Awesome trip! You going to see European Grand Canyon, totally beautiful, breathtaking! Have a few stops, take lots of photos, swim in the fresh water lake. Groups are small, max 8 people, mini vans are very comfortable and drivers , or I should say our driver/ guide Leo was excellent! Spoken few languages, very good knowledge of area. Just a couple of things every one should consider….. Beautiful lavanda flowering in July, so if you go on this trip in spring or autumn don’t expect purple beauty . Also the cars or minivans as well as comfortable they are for 8 people and driver. Isn’t big room to move, so please be considerate to each other and don’t wear strong parfums please . The rest is up to you to pay ( very good value for money) and enjoy beautiful Provence

We loved the trip! We would have liked more time in the gorge to go swimming/ kayaking. Less time needed in the village. Leo was a charming tour guide! You should have been clearer during booking that lavender would not be out this time.
