I've booked Luberon tour online. The tour took 9 hours starting from ax en Provence. First we stoped in the village of Fontaine de Vaucluse where we saw the famous spring and paper mill. Then we visited Cistercian abbey of Senanque. The lavender field was not in bloom yet. We had a quick lunch in the beautiful Gordes. We proceeded to Roussillon. It was full of tourists but worth the visit. Then we visited takes Lacoste. We enjoyed the tour. The van was very comfortable. Four other people were with us but it felt like a private tour. Such beautiful scenery, I have never took so many photos in a day. I highly recommend the tour and Provence Xplorer.

Even before the tour, Emma had been patiently answering all my queries via e-mail- and I appreciate her efforts!

Our guide, Elise had been very professional and the VW van provided is pretty good as well

The only downside was that Elise waited at the wrong hotel so there was a slight delay to the start of an otherwise good tour. It definitely beats joining a group tour as we get to choose our itinerary and to do it at our own pace.

We engaged them for our transfer to Marseille St. Charles the following day - unfortunately the driver was 20 minutes late. Luckily, we did not miss our train.

We had an ambitious plan for the 8.5 hours our Holland America Rotterdam would be in port at Marseilles. Emma and Fabrice had their immaculate Mercedes van parked right at the gangway, ready to start at 8AM as we had agreed over the internet. Thanks to their planning and timing, we avoided the tour bus crowds and got to experience the historic parts of Aix and Avignon and even see the Pont du Gard on our own terms. Emma was very congenial and knowledgeable and made the sights come alive for us. She knew many people in the Aix outdoor market and treated us to calison candy. Throughout the day, she was sensitive to what we wanted to see and do and let us tour at OUR pace. We were very pleased with our day and felt we received great value for our money. We highly recommend this fine couple to you.

Our tour with Provence Xplorer was absolutely perfect. We were a small group of photography teachers and students planning a trip to Aix and we wanted to see a few sites in the region. We were in contact with the guide a few weeks before our trip and she was always very professional, responsive, flexible and accommodating in her responses and suggestions. She put together a perfect itinerary that included Gordes, Marseille, Lourmarin, Rousillon and a few other locations. When we finally arrived in Aix, the guide was always prompt, courteous and attentive and put us immediately at ease about the plans for the next few days. Additionally, we found her to be extremely knowledgeable about local histories and cultures. No question went unanswered. The driver was also very professional, kind and knowledgeable and the van was comfortable and roomy. Really, the tour package and services were beyond what we expected and it felt like we were traveling with friends which made the entire experience even better. I would not hesitate to travel with them again and neither should you!
