organization takes you to authentic protected remote gems of villages and views Gordes and Roussillon, you do a market in Cavaillon, there are photo stops at beautiful locations. The lavender museum and the fields near and around the monastery of Our Lady of Sénanque are also a revelation. Small groups, smooth transport, a lot of freedom, punctual organization. You can't do so much beauty alone in an unknown region. Our guide was also a great driver and occasionally told us something interesting along the way, always with a big smile.

The day tour grants you a stay of one hour in 3 different locations, and there are also 2 beautiful lavender fields for a relaxed photo stop. The highlight Abbey Senanque could be visited for over an hour, the restored monastery is beautifully embedded in lavender fields, a dream in purple. The guide saves you the hassle of looking for a parking space. I highly recommend the tour. Only the lavender museum at the end should be left out of the program in favor of the other places.

It was a nice and pleasant tour. We were shown beautifully blooming lavender fields. There was enough time for the abbey and Gordes - in Gordes for lunch and a stroll. In Roussillon, however, you ran out of time if you wanted to see the little village in addition to the ocher fields. The guide went to a lot of trouble, you felt in good hands.

It is a pretty well trip, we went to a lot of places we could never go without the guide and the car. I like the guide, he is a super nice cute young guy and the funniest part is that he said my friend is the second french person ever on this trip, so all french people drive there???? hahahahahaha.

This year is too hot for lavender however the agent rearranges the tour to make it a great day. Our guide Majid is very nice and helpful.
