What people are saying about Avignon

Excellent tour!

Excellent guide. Really enjoyed her tour. Learned alot about the area as well as the lavender growing, industry and history in the Luberon region. Well worth the time and money spent doing this tour, would definitely recommend to anyone interested not only in lavender but also the towns and lifestyle living in this area... beautiful country!

Nice tour of Provence but less lavender than expected. we did do photo stops in multiple fields and the Lavender Museum which were nice. However, the field stops were photos for maybe 15min and the bulk of time was a market in St Remy and lunch in Rouisslon. Both nice, but not as much lavender as the tour name implies.

Well organized to the best places

A friendly guide drove the 7 people to the most beautiful places in the minibus zz. He was also happy to respond to special requests.

It was a great way to see the Luberon and all it ahead to offer!! Guide was excellent!
