This was a really fun tour with a great guide. We visited small villages and toured the lavender museum. We were early for the full lavender blooms but it was still beautiful and I would highly recommend this tour.

We had an excellent time with this tour on 10 September 2013. Our guide, Julian (not sure about the exact spelling of his name), made it all worth while. He was prompt, informative, and accommodating in the schedule and the sites we visited in order to insure we got the most of our experience. We especially wanted to maximize out visit to Gordes in order to visit the market day there, and he helped us to do so. He helped us to learn all about the surrounding Avignon area and was especially good at pointing out the "sites" and providing background. We truly enjoyed this and would recommend any other customers to particularly request Julian. Thanks, Julian.

Very professionally handled. Our driver was delightful and prompt. I only wish she had offered her opinion of the time constraints on our itinerary. Had I had a better sense of the drive time vs visit time, I would have eliminated a stop and not felt so rushed.
