I went on the full-day Lavender and Luberon villages tour with my mum and we enjoyed our time incredibly. Our guide Nicolas was very patient with us, a wonderful guide with great initiative, and the lavender fields he brought us to were amazing. The villages Gordes and Roussilon were so charming. Would highly recommend this tour during lavender season.

Fantastic tour. Ryan, our guide, was so friendly and informative. We really enjoyed the half day tour as it felt so much more relaxed. The stops were fairly short (20 to 25 mins) but didn't feel rushed whatsoever. Beautiful scenery in rousillon and the Abbey. Ryan was a top tour guide. Merci!

Our guide Nicolas shared many fun facts and history about the places we visited. He also gave advices on good photo-taking spots with spectacular view of village and lavender field scenery. Transportation was provided by a Volkswagen 8-seater minivan, which gave us a cosy ride.

Totally recommend the tour we liked everything. Our guide Nico was perfect we were taken to the most beautiful lavender 🪻 fields of the area and to amazing villages of Gordes, Roussillon and Menerbes.
