The tour was excellent, wonderful scenery. Everything went according to plan, the Solemn guide - by the way an excellent guide - was at the agreed time and place. She took us to wonderful lavender fields and showed us and told us about the region and the lavender cultivation process. I recommend

It was a lovely experience. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable of the areas where the lavender is grown and their different types. She was willing to answer any burning questions. The fields were also very beautiful, making for a unique experience where you could take all the photos you wanted. Lastly, trying the products made was an eye-opening experience as we not long ago walked through the fields where they were grown. I'd highly recommend it.

I chose the tour because I didn't rent a car. The free cancellation deadline was long, so I purposely made a reservation through Get Your Guide. The size of the car was not bad for 8 people to go and it was full for 8 people. I have seen about 4 lavender fields, but I also go to fields where lavender and sunflowers are together. This is the prettiest place, but it was a pity that I spent a little time here. At the end, I went to a store that sells lavender one more time and continued to promote it, so I felt like I was buying it, but it's okay not to buy it. The tour itself is satisfactory.
