Very well organized tour that combined couple of picturesque villages and amazing views of the Verdon river. Our tour guide Nora was super at optimizing the tour for our group, and she had a plenty of interesting information. I recommend renting a paddle boat at the lake, so you can admire the views from different angles. FYI the lavender fields bloom from June to mid July.

You should know that the lavender fields are blooming June- mid July. We visited grand canyons and several nice old villages, had a wine degustation on the way back to Nice in April. This trip made our trip to Nice unforgettable. It is worth visiting as these small ancient villages and nature are more beautiful than Monaco or other worldwide known cities.
