What to expect
  • Your morning or afternoon small-group tour begins with pickup from your Avignon hotel. Take a seat in the comfortable minivan and enjoy the passing Provençal landscape, famous for endless swathes of lavender and postcard-worthy villages carved from stone. The summer particularly affords glorious views, which you’ll have the chance to capture at photo stops such at the medieval Sénanque Abbey. Explore beautiful Rousillon, a hilltop village at the edge of the Luberon mountain range, marked for its brilliant red stone buildings. Learn about the town’s unique mining history as you view the surrounding ochre cliffs, painted in shades of red and yellow. Then continue to Gordes, one of France’s most gorgeous villages. Composed of white stone, this ancient town seems to rise straight from the earth. As you walk the narrow cobblestone streets, take in the scenery that inspired artists such as Pablo Picasso and Peter Mayle, author of A Year in Provence.  Your last stop is Fontaine de Vaucluse, a typical provençal village built at the spring of the Sorgues river.  Your 5-hour tour ends with drop-off at your Avignon hotel by early afternoon or evening.

Lavender full-day tour to Valensole - July 8 2018 (code PRW004696)
Jul 2018 • Solo
Tour pickup was at Radisson Blu Marseille. Tour departure was delayed 30 minutes due to one passenger being late. The minivan ride to Aix took far too long. Upon a passenger's question of why we were seeing the 'Marseille' hillside letters and port area twice, the guide mentioned a return to Marseille was needed due to a rock slide impacting the highway to Aix... Funny, as I thought simply an exit taken too early (side note, my wife is from Marseille - I've been there many times). Upon arrival in Aix, the guide specified to meet at the tourist office at 12:00 with 'free time' to walk the town. As he was fumbling with a printed map trying to determine where we were in proximity to the tourist office, I simply walked to the Aix cathedral, saw the highlights (this was my fifth trip to Aix) and returned at the collection point timely. I was lectured by the guide, as apparently I needed to tell him if I departed from the group. I thought it a waste of time to counter his lack of argument. We then visited Valensole, where the group had an hour to eat lunch and sight see if possible - again, 'free time'. As I knew Valensole would be very crowded this time of year, as well not many places for food, I had already eaten in Aix. Others in the group did not eat as wait times at the few cafes were long. A reputable guide would have known this. We met at the meeting spot; the guide arrived 20 minutes late. Explanation: he checked the spot, and we were not there... right... Upon departure to a lavender field, some wrong turns (including into a dead end) and then we arrived. Unfortunately another passenger forgot her mobile in Valensole. We were left in the lavender field for a relatively long period of time (hot in July, no water, etc.).Upon pickup, we were dropped off at a roadside souvenir shop nearby where again the guide left in an attempt to collect the mobile. After another extended period of time, we finally departed for Marseille. A disappointing tour from start to finish. Pity.
