Overall very nice tour with lots to see. The only comment is a choice of timing: we arrived very early to Les Baux village - all shops and restaurants were still closed and starting to open; and then we arrived to Avignon around 13:00, so some of restaurants were going to close for a day-rest break in an hour or so and only touristy bistros were opened (not what I enjoy).. For wine tastes can differ, so I will not say enything here. But otherwise it was a very interesting journey if you like historical places and a feel of Provance. I am glad I went and would recommend.

Great experience! Spectacular views of landscape scenery, little old villages and beauty of simple countryside life. Our guide Florence had provided us extensive information about culture, historical background, architecture, local agriculture and lifestyle of people in Provence. We had enough time to visit sightseeings in every place and also try some local food. We really enjoyed the wine degustation and learnt how to distinguish different types of wine and enjoy it! Highly recommended!

5 star service, our driver just brilliant, found out so much history about reagion and wine tasting... from the grape bite to gorgeous wine and all in between was magical. Definitely recommend this experience if you visiting Marseille first time specially.

The trip was amazing and our guide Lucy was knowledgeable. The wine tasting and the lesson on wine making was very informative. Would recommend the tour to anyone.

Your guide was very pleasant and knew the subject matter.
