  • From Avignon: Half-Day Lavender Tour of Luberon

    1. From Avignon: Half-Day Lavender Tour of Luberon

    Discover the lavender fields in full bloom in the villages of Luberon on this half-day tour from Avignon.  Enjoy a scenic and picturesque drive through the countryside, full of beautiful purple fields that stretch as far as the eye can see. Your guide will organize many stops in the countryside to take pictures of the fields. Stop in Roussillon for some free time to wander through this typical provençal village. Indulge yourself here with a scoop of lavender ice cream. Stop for panoramic photos from the hilltop village of Gordes, listed as one of "The Most Beautiful Villages in France". Finally, take a quick photo stop at the Cisterian Senanque Abbey, surrounded by lavender fields.

    Our tour guide, Joanna, was great! Very knowledgeable, not only on the topic of Lavender (which was what the tour was about) but in general about the area, with historical and modern facts provided with engaging conversation throughout the tour.

A fabulous half day excursion well worth it.

Our guide spoke good English and he kept us interested and entertained. We saw fabulous fields of sunflowers and lavender. Had sufficient photo stops and enough time to browse in the towns. This trip was well worth it!

Well organized. We had an opportunity to see lavender fields, to visit Sault, little and cosy village, and taste delicious lavender ice creams. Our guide Andy was very informative, and helpful.

The tour started on time. As promised, beautiful lavender fields showed. The tour guide was very helpful. I advise everyone.

Excellent overview and visit to sites and lavender fields.
