Dommage pas de lavande en Novembre mais le canyon est impressionnant.
The tour was amazing! I've taken dozens of tours across the world and this one was by far one of the best ones and just incomparable to other tours I did in Provence. Giles was very knowledgeable and fun with many stories to share about the places we visited. It was the biggest highlight of my trip
