Very long day of travelling

This tour felt very unorganised. It was good to have some freedom to chose what we did however there was no planned stop from when we left until Valensole, about 2.5 hours driving. We had to stop in a town for toilet breaks and the fact that a few people were car sick. There was only one aircon vent in the front of the vehicle so it got very hot in the back. The road to Valensole is very very windy and made a lot of people sick. If I knew how windy it was I probably wouldn’t of done it. The driver was nice and new a lot about the surroundings. The wine tasting tour was also a bit confusing as apparently the place wanted to charge us to taste if all 8 people on the tour were tasting however because one person on the tour wasn’t drinking 7 people got to taste for free. So really it’s not included in the price.

The driver/guide was excellent. Sebastian was a safe driver friendly

He was knowledgeable, prompt and took good care of us. We did not realise that the drive on the highway would be so long. Aix was interesting but not amazing. Driving on smaller rural roads would have been more interesting. Thankyou
