Provence is for sure one of the most beautiful places we have ever visited! In no small part our visit was enhanced dramatically by the tours that were provided us by Sarah of Discover Provence. We spent two gorgeous, crisp November days with Sarah exploring the ancient villages of the Luberon and the Van Gogh trail. The tours were relaxed... More

Discover Tours owner and guide Sarah Pernet gave my sister and I a very special day in the perch villages of Provence through her great appreciation for the culture, history and cuisine of the region.

My husband and I were staying in Aix-en-Provence and spent a day touring the Perched Villages in the Luberon. Our small tour consisted of one other couple and ourselves, plus Sarah as driver and guide. It was a full day, and we visited at least six villages, including a stop at a winery. We saw so many things that I'm... More

Then Sarah took us to Cassis where we enjoyed some food & local wine before we took a boat trip where we enjoyed seeing the spectacular coastal area including 3 calanques. Throughout... More

After a tour of the eastern boringders of France, we went to Aix-en-Provence for a restful finish to our vacation. However, we appreciate the knowledge and expertise of a good local guide and arranged for a full day with Sarah at Discover Provence. Our tour began with a walking tour of Aix where we visited both the "modern" and medieval... More

Our 1/2 day tour of Cassis with Sarah was spectacular! Sarah was an excellent guide and so much fun to be around. We had no idea what to expect from our trip to Cassis and it ended up being our favorite part of a 2 week trip to France. Sarah was so much fun to be around and pointed out... More

Sarah took us on a walking tour through Aix in the morning and to several perched villages in the Luberon in the afternoon, capped off with a delightful wine tasting at a winery. Sarah was delightful, knowledgeable and provided helpful tips of the local culture. Her knowledge of art, architecture and local customs allowed this tour to not only be... More

My wife and I just returned from France. I had arranged a 2 day tour with Sarah Pernet to the Luberon Villages [day 1] and the footsteps of Van Gogh [day 2]. As I reviewed the 2 weeks in southern France, the 2 days we spent on tour with Sarah had the most impact. She picked us up each day... More

Sarah Pernet picked us up in the morning near the central fountain in Aix-en-Provence and we began the most wonderful two-day adventure in Provence.
