What people are saying about Provence

Excellent half day tour to the wineries with an extremely knowledgeable and friendly guide, Thierry. We visited three wineries in the region and Thierry added wonderful details about each town and the wines produced by them. The wines we tasted were fabulous and we ended up picking up a bottle from each winery (including one in Chateauneuf de Pape of course). Friendly folks at all the wineries, I would highly recommend this tour if you have half a day to spare in Provence.

Terry was very good! We got lucky and got a private ride even though it was booked as a group event. The wines were excellent. We bought 4 bottles. The time allowed for this trip is too short and we could only cover 2 wineries instead of three but this was enough.

A perfect way to get oriented in Aix— our guide Elisabeth— was charming, passionate, fun and extremely knowledgeable! We were taken through the heart of Aix with samples of history, food and wine… a MUST DO tour!!

That was an amazing morning ! Olive harvest and very nice food under a very sunny day in Provence. We will come back for sure for more activities ! Thank you !

So so beautiful. Amazing tour guide, funny and very informative. You learn a lot and you get gorgeous city views. 100% recommend, you will not regret it.
