An amazing day! We went to some gorgeous villages - the markets in Lourmarin, lunch in Roussillon, and time to wander in Gordes and Fontaine de Vaucluse. Lucy our guide was friendly and informative. Thoroughly recommend this trip as a great way to see the best of Provence.

We had an excellent day with Florence - she had so much interesting information about the places we visited and was a great guide. Communication from Get Your Guide was timely and helpful.

trip was changed to a different trip due to lack of people for my tour so I had a good day for the price I paid for half a day Florence was amazing

My daughter and I really enjoyed the visit. Full of little savory and sweet discoveries from the center of Aix en Provence
