Lots of opportunity to see Lavender fields - breathtaking! Also sunflower fields - olive trees, along with tastings of different olive oils, etc. Loved being able to tour the charming towns- and with the benefit of a driver so that’s we did not have to deal with parking or navigation. The tour guide we had, Remy, spoke English very well- and since we and the other members of our tour spoke English our guide was in English - however he does them in French as well if that is better suited. Remy was knowledgeable about many subjects from the lavender, to local farming, to the history of the villages, the region and France in general.

Exceptional, everything was perfect. Between the lavender fields, the Verdon gorges, the day was magical. Landscapes took your breath away. The icing on the cake our guide Rémy was brilliant, very nice, professional, all along the way giving us anecdotes about the region, took his time at each stop. I will come back !

I would recommend this tour to everyone

So then, it was pretty nice or wonderful or just excellent. I've never thought that I could spend my free time so amazingly good. This tour is good structured, our guide, Rimmy (I'm sorry if I wrote your name badly) was a really professional guide, with high level English&good sence of humor and everything he was telling us was really interesting. Thank you to all of us. You are making a good job!
