Overall rating

The Aix-en-Provence tour with Benjamin was excellent. We covered a lot of ground and a lot of history in a relatively short amount of time. What meant a great deal to me personally was Benjamin's personal connection to the city and the history. It's one thing to hear of Jews killed or displaced during WWII, and quite another when some of them are the guide's relatives. Clearly Ben knows his stuff, is witty, and very personable.

“We had an absolutely wonderful experience on our walking tour of Aix. His extensive knowledge and intelligent way of presenting information made the tour both educational and highly engaging. We learned so much about the area, its history, and culture, all while having a lot of fun. It was truly a memorable tour, and we are grateful for his guidance and expertise. Highly recommend!”

Our guide, Emanuel, was knowledgeable, entertaining, witty and most enjoyable to spend the day with! Everything worked out well after some confusion regarding the meeting place at the start of the tour. Both locations are beautiful and well worth the visit. I recommend this tour.

Great tour by very knowledgeable guide. Benjamin made the tour fun and informative. I really enjoyed the whole tour. I highly recommend to take this tour and have a great view of the city. Than you Benjamin. I surely will be back. So much to see and the food looks soo good.

We loved this tour! Our guide was fabulous and made it exactly what we wanted!
