This was certainly an experience I would never forget! Florence, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable, personable, and accommodating. We had a chance to get to Aix early enough to frequent the market and Florence continuously gave us good tips on shops and streets to check out along the way. Everything about seeing the lavender fields in person with your own two eyes is simply surreal. It is better than any postcard, that’s for sure! I loved the small villages and towns that we visited and ending our tour with a demonstration of organic lavender products made on site, complete with olive oil and almond tastings, was a perfect way to finish the day. I HIGHLY recommend this day trip!

Trip was in small bus (5 person inside considering some spaces between due to vivid requirements), it was relax full, quite asked us how much time we want to spend in different place. Driving way was very good and the guide person was really careful about us. I can fully recommend, it was nice trip.

Great spots

Our driver took us to some lovely spots to see the lavender fields and sunflowers. Loved our visit to Aix. I was surprised that the driver was not with us during our visit to Aix like a guide, but I actually preferred it this way. 3 hours in Aix felt right but we could stay there the whole day :) Felt overpriced though as we didn't have a guide to accompany us. The driver took us to places, gave us suggestions and presentations about the history and present of Aix and lavender culture, but that's it.
