Complex and well organized day

It was really good, well organized and prepared tour (in scheuled as well). Our guide was really nice and gave us a perfect help in each villages. He shared a lot of information about the villages and the surrounding regions and gave us a lot of good tips what we cannot miss from our free time.

This is a must do! Exceptional

Great tour! Well worth the price and more importantly the time. Just the right amount of time in each beautiful visit. I took thr tour because I love antiqued and wanted to go to the Sunday Isle sur de la Sorge antiques market which was our first stop. I didnt buy anything as I found the prices high; however, what an amazing surprise the other villages were...so I was not disappointed. I did think ot was all going to be markets in every village and it wasnt but that was my fault. It was an 11/10 tour. Top tip: eat the lavender sorbet down the hill in Luberon. When you get it...stop everything you are doing and close your eyes to taste it!

Highly recommended

Traveling by myself it was very hard to book a tour just for one person. I finally was able and am very glad I took the tour. Matt was an excellent tour guide, very patient, very knowledgeable and very nice Each of the villages visited had their own charm and although I would've loved spending more time in L'Isle-sur-le-Sorgue and Rousillon, I am very glad we were able to visit them and have this "teaser" so I can come back again with more time.
