It was wonderful experience with beautiful lavender. Our guide “Remy” knew good spots to take a beautiful photos with lavender. And he explains about the village well. It was very interesting for us. we really recommanded him. :) But, the booking agence demanded to change our reservation time. So, it makes us very unpleasant. And, we should have to change our entire plan of day.

Recommended activity

In my opinion it is an activity that is worth it. During the journey from Aix-en-Provence to the lavender fields that lasts approximately half an hour they tell you the story of both the town and the different landscapes that are observed. When you reach the lavender fields, different stops are taken to take pictures. At the end of the visit you stop at the store of one of the main producers where you have the opportunity to try and learn first-hand the main products of the area as well as buy soaps or oils ... I would also recommend once the visit is over Take a walk around the village of Aix-en-Provence as I consider it quite worth it.

Our guide was awesome.

We ended in second smaller group with a new guide that was added because of overbooking. I loved the smaller group, our guide was the best, personable, he took excellent care of everyone’s needs. We had a lady with a disability with us and he went above and beyond to accommodate her. It was probably the most pleasant day I’ve had in years especially being in lavender heaven! Thank you
