Provence Exclusive Tours

About Provence Exclusive Tours
I am an independent licensed guide providing tours of the main cities and monuments of Provence, but also driving around the beautiful famous and less famous sites of the area in my own mini van. After working for many years as a guide for groups, I decided to specialize in private tours (2014 is my 10th year!) to share my love and knowledge about Provence and France in general. Having lived and travelled abroad, I know what a difference it makes to visit with a local. Tours with me are always a mix of history, food and wine, local experience and daily life. I also specialize in theme tours (painters, Jewish Heritage, Roman architecture...) and special requests.

We have had a lot of good guides, but Laurence was special. She is very relaxed and connects well with Americans, better than other very good French guides we have enjoyed. We enjoyed her vehicle as well -- including its lovely panoramic roof!
