Gilles was an expert in this Region, he would go an extra mile to make all guest feels safe, comfortable and feel welcomed, a bonus is that he shared historic background, insider knowledge and some surprise destination. Would recommend a day trip with Gilles and would book again!
Great experience! Perfect planning of the tour: we visited a lot of places but with enough time to do a proper sightseeing. Totally recommended!
Honestly, a great and wonderful tour with a great guide!!! I definitely recommend it....worth the money!
Great trip to beautiful places that I would not have discovered otherwise. Thanks a lot, Gilles!
The tour was flexible and I didnt feel any pressure. I like that the guide was very particular with good hygiene practice to make sure to prevent covid-19. We spent a lot of time in the lavender fields and had more than enough time for photos! Plus we were able to visit historical towns in the region.
Giles really knows his stuff. We first decided for the tour because we thought it would be similar to something we could do, had we rented a car. After we finished the tour, it was clear that this was something rather unique. Giles took us to all the places listed, in the scorching heat, but managed to adapt to the circumstances brilliantly, without leaving anything out. Not to mention the fact that he was well prepared and has a lot of knowledge and fun facts to share about the area. We got to see the real Provence, the lavender fields, the distillery, and so much more. It was great!
We enjoyed the trip to the lavender fields a lot since we didnt have a car so we booked the tour. Gilles took time to explain everything and gave us heaps of informations about things we did. He was very attentive so that we could have an unforgettable experience. Thank you Gilles.
The tour is wonderfully designed by Gilles. We explored the beautiful medieval villages of the Luberon valley. We also visited the Lavender fields and Gilles shared with us information about the different varieties and uses of Lavender and some personal anecdotes! The scenery of the region is exquisite in itself. Overall I had a wonderful time and would highly recommend the tour.
What a beautiful way to see the area around Avignon in one day. I had limited time, and wanted to be guided by a local: this saved me time and resources and was perfect. Gilles is a kind and thoughtful guide, he is a local in the area and an expert. I especially appreciated his expertise with locations and how efficient and clear he was. I have the most gorgeous photos of Provence, a belly full of delicious local treats, and I'm taking some very special souviens home with me. Thank you Gilles, I will definitely be back and I highly recommend this tour.
