4 wonderful places: Lourmarin Roussillon with its market and, if you wanted, time for lunch, the source of the Sorgue and the village of l'Isle sur la Sorgue. Of course, all places tempt you to come back because such a trip is and can only be a way of getting to know each other. But never rushed. Additional photo stop in Gordes. Good time management by the guide, Ludo. He also explained well during the drive and was very calm and drove well [Mercedes Van, 5 participants]. Excursion was worth the money. I really liked it. The group was international, everyone was nice and interested.

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!
