We missed a reservation at Chez Fonfon because we got back at 7.30 the time of our reservation. The tour started at 8 and I was told it would be 9 and a half hours. We should have got back at 5.30. Don’t know why the guide Virginie spent so long in certain villages eg 2 hours in Gordes. Not long enough in some towns with more to see and do and too long in villages where little to do. Went to Marseille to eat Bouillabaisse and missed that experience because of bad timing. Also the guide should not ask for a tip that should be at the discretion of clients. Loved seeing all the villages but if the guide had stuck to the timetable we would have been able to eat Bouillabaisse. We hit the traffic jam coming back because she left too late. Disappointed in all and very tired at the end of the day.
Our tour guide was absolutely wonderful and knowledgeable. He shared information about Marseille during the drive to the countryside. We saw multiple lavender fields, lookout points with plenty of time for pictures. The two villages were a great part of the trip as well-each with its own character and charm. There was enough time to eat, shop and explore. We had thought about renting a car but saw much more of the region with the tour!
The local guide Elisa was very nice and knew a lot about Marseille. She was able to change the planned route because we could not stand the cold strong wind near the harbor.
We really enjoyed the company of our guide Nelly. She was knowledgeable and gave us plenty of time to enjoy things on our own, plus she was an amazing driver
Virgine was an excellent host and was very knowledgeable. We had a memorable and unforgettable day with her.
