Coming to Provence from a week in Paris was a wonderful shift to a lower gear of sheer enjoyment and immersion into the gorgeous landscape, the history, the fresh and well prepared food, and the crisp wines of the region. Drawing on her 20 years of living in Provence Sarah Pernet was our perfect guide, maximizing our experience through conversation in advance of our trip to discern our interests and priorities and with her friendly, relaxed personae. I discovered Sarah through Rick Steves' recommendation of her in his "Provence" guidebook, describing her exactly as we found. Our four days with Sarah were full of new sights and experiences enriched with her knowledge of the history of each area visited. I've always said the mark of success is to leave your audience wanting more. I'm eager for a future visit to see more of this lovely region. Mission accomplished, Sarah! Until next time.

My sister and I were excited to see and learn about Provence and its rich history, beauty, and charm. We weren't disappointed thanks to our wonderful and knowledgeable guide, Sarah Pernet. Sarah's fluency in both French and English was a plus, and it was obvious from our first day together that her thoughtful and well-vetted destinations, shops and restaurants made each day fun and rewarding yet never hurried. Our four days in Provence went by so quickly and left me determined to return again. There's so much of Provence yet to see and do, and I would certainly consider seeking Sarah's guidance again in the future, she's terrific.

"Discover Provence" is what we did with Sarah on our 3 day tour in which we learned about Aix-en-Provence (including meeting the Lavendar Lady) on a walking tour, visited Cassis and took a boat ride into the Calanques before enjoying stunning views from one of the tallest maritime cliffs in Europe, to visits to several Luberon perched villages, concluding with exploring Van Gogh's presence in Arles and St. Remy, a view of Les Baux des Provence and a Cezanne immersion. My wife and I very much enjoyed Sarah's company and conversation over the three days of our Provence experience. This was a great tour for those wanting to see a lot of what Provence has to offer, whether it is a one-time experience or just an opportunity to whet the appetite for future visits. Sarah was kind enough to offer to take pictures of us for our memories and to share with family and friends. Over the past several years, we have taken a variety of tours through Europe - both private and group. This offering from Discover Provence is one of the best. We highly recommend it and Sarah as a tour guide.

I spent a few days with Sarah in Provence in September. She is a very friendly and professional guide who clearly feels passionately about Provence and is eager to share this experience and her stories with you. We did a great wine tasting which resulted in me buying a couple of cases and then we went to an olive oil degustation where there was delicious very green olive oil- the wallet was out again! Too many highlights to list but the visit to the convent where Van Gogh spent a year being nursed by the nuns for mental health issues was very special. This beautiful convent still helps people with mental health issues today and many of the patients use paint therapy and copy some of Van Gogh’s works which you can buy! Sarah was very informative about Van Gogh and I learned some things I didn’t know. Do ask Sarah to take you to the perched villages where time has stood still. She’s also a good driver and her bus was very comfortable. Great few days- thanks Sarah. I’ll be back!

My friend and I were on a trip to Paris and last minute decided to visit Provence. We found Sarah on Trip Advisor, we were so lucky that she had a last minute covid cancellation and slotted us in a 3 days Provence cultural and food tour. Sarah is amazing, she is very knowledgeable of the area, she was able to accommodate both my friend and my different interests. Sarah is very professional and she is very flexible and willing to modify our itinerary on the fly. Sarah, thanks so much for making our Provence trip a memorable and stress free vacation, we’ll treasure our memories for many years. I’ll definitely return to hike the hills in Provence with you.
