A most wonderful morning spent visiting the Luberon highlights. We were expertly guided by Caroline, a very warm, friendly and professional guide. She shared lots of information about the locality and French culture. She was very attentive to all guests and included everyone in conversations as we drove to the villages. She gave us clear tips for visiting the villages and instructions to rendezvous pick ups. A very pleasurable experience and worth the cost. I recommend!

Disappointed the driver only took us for a quick photo shot of Gordes and didn't take us into the city. That was the main reason to take the tour in the first place. Spent too much time at Rossullion. Time spent at both villages should have been the other way around! She was more worried about getting back for her afternoon tour

The guide Silvia was at the top: pleasant, smiling, full of joy. We made this course with great wonder. We have the right to beautiful stories and legends all along the journeys to go from one village to another. It was great to be able to have time from one of the Luberon villages. Highly recommend this experience!

Nice to have an intimate size group. We had extra time and our guide graciously stopped by a lavender field so we could take photos. Had time to walk around in Roussillon and Fontaine sur Vaucluse. Not as much history explained but some , good if you just want to see the Provençal towns !

Miss Lea is a wonderful tourguide and a super sweet girl. I had a terific half-day experience with her.
