What people are saying about Roussillon
On a hot 36 deg C day we toured provence in airconditioned minivan. The locations were unique and have good vistas of the countryside. Our guide was restricted to his vehicle due to drop off arrangements so we received suggestions on places to visit and we explored the locations from there. Would have been nice to tweak the times in the different locations due to heat. Two locations have streams/rivers and would have been nice to have more time there and less in the hotter locations. Pont du Gare was probably my favourite - impressive architecture, river, nice breezes, and museum which I only had time to race through.
Our tour guide, Jean Baptiste (JB), was informative and very knowledgeable of the whole area of Provence. He took us to eight or nine different stops throughout the whole day. My wife and I loved the "all day" tour because we came to France to see a lot of the countryside and Provence......not just one or two towns. JB drove us from city to city while explaining facts of the area along the way. Then we would have time to get out and walk around at each city. This tour is the best for your money.
David did a great job of providing interesting commentary about the history of the various areas we saw during the day. It was an aggressive schedule, but necessary to cover the diverse areas we saw. We could have spent much more time at each site but as a highlights/overview tour we were able to spend just enough to appreciate the special nature of each site.
We had a fantastic tour with Greg! He was very knowledgeable, happy, funny- and a great driver. He explained the history of all the towns we visited and he also pointed out good shopping and eating spots. He clearly loves the area and enjoys sharing it with visitors!!
Gille, our tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly and made the trip a real highlight of our stay in Avignon. The Luberon valley has a lot of interesting sites to enjoy and of course the lavender fields delivered a true delight to the senses.
