I couldn’t recommend this tour enough! ABDEL was an amazing tour guide, he stopped in so many picturesque places and even helped lone travellers with their pictures! The times at each location perfect. The car has aircon and Abel provided water. He even gave the option at the end to stay in Sainte Marie or go down to the Verdon after being in village for an hour (perfect to grab lunch!) each person would then decide what they’d prefer and the group splits and meets at the end. *please note: 1) (at no fault of the tour guides of course! And is the wonders of Nature!) that the ride to the locations is mountain roads and they are not great for people who suffer from motion sickness - rest assured Abdel said he would stop at any moment if needed! There’s turns left and right continuously so please be mindful of that I suppose. Everyone in my group was okay though and we got to the locations is good times. 2) Lavender Fields - don’t bloom until July. Still beautiful regardless!

The tour was very nice, but the organization didn't work out well. We booked a German tour, only found out on the bus that the German guide had dropped out and the tour was only in English. There were 4 of us, only one person could speak English, which was a shame for the others. In addition, we had to wait 30 minutes for the driver to start, because we gave him the wrong address and phone number. The start of the day wasn't so good, the rest of the day, especially the landscape, was great.

It was a wonderful trip to Verdon Canyon. Lavender fields did not bloom. We saw poppy fields. The guide, Chiuos, spoke good English and paid close attention to his client. He also told us about the places we visited. The trip lasted 12 hours and was worth the price. Thank you!

I highly recommend this excursion. The owner of the shop took us on a great tour; he has a great attitude and was very patient. My wife and kids loved it. It's a great way to see Marseille. Riding the Segway is easy, safe and fun.

Great trip, to see so much in one day that words can not express thank you was great!!!
