overall good and beautiful

Our tour guide was great (Sebastian) especially for his second time! the area is beautiful the medieval village beautiful, the farm stop and taster was fun and interesting. with great views at each stop. The lavender wasn't fully bloomed but was still good. it would be better if for the cost you stopped at the lake for longer, dip your feet in the beautiful water! and relax. the Loccane (I think, the factory and shop) wasn't very interesting or compare to the rest. it would be better to spend time at that lake!! Do an activity there :) overall good.

Magical experience

To me it has been a dream for many, many years to see the lavender fields in Provence and it's been the best idea possible to book this tour and make it come true at last. A heartfelt thank you to Alex, our guide who did an amazing job. It almost seemed like a trip amongst friends to be driving around with him and five other lovely people from Korea and Canada in a Minivan. The landscapes are breathtaking and the lavender fields unimaginably beautiful. Another highlight of this tour was our visit of the gorgeous village Moustiers Sainte Marie and the Lac St. Croix before we could visit the shop and museum of Occitane en Provence. This day will remain unforgettable to me and I highly recommend this tour to everyone!
