Well worth using a tour guide

Our guide met us in front of the Apple store. There we 6 plus the guide in a large comfortable air conditioned van. It was hot as blazes out, so nice having the AC and a driver who knew where to go. Lots of people on the highways by the lavender fields creating crowds. Our guide took us to some more secluded fields. It’s a long drive to the fields from Aix en Provence. Fields of Sunflower and Lavender were a once in a lifetime experience.

렌트를 하지 않았기 때문에 투어를 선택했어요. 무료취소기한이 길어서 일부러 겟유어가이드에서 예약했고 갔을 때는 다른 사이트 통해서 예약하신 분들도 오신 것 같았습니다. 8명 정원에 꽉 채워서 갔고 8명이 앉기에 차 크기는 나쁘지 않았습니다. 4군데 정도의 라벤다 밭을 봤는데 라벤다와 해바라기가 같이 있는 밭도 갑니다. 여기가 제일 예쁜데 여기서 제일 시간을 조금 줘서 아쉬웠어요. 마지막에 라벤다를 파는 상점을 한 번 더 가서 계속 홍보를 하시기에 사라는 느낌이 받았지만 안 사도 괜찮습니다. 투어 자체는 만족합니다.
