Reviews- What Other Explorers Have to Say

“The lavender was in full bloom and we got to spend quite a bit of time in the fields. We were in Aix-en-Provence for two hours to explore the town, then went to Valensole and then finally to the Lavender fields. The flowers were in bloom and it was a spectacular sight. Then we stopped at a local lavender/honey/olive oil producer for some tastings. Overall it was worth it and I would totally recommend it.”

 

 The Castles, bridges,food and wine, all excellent places if you want history, scenic views and vibes. Thank you so much for the history book that came alive for me. It was the best thing we did in France, even in the off season. Really gave us a sense of history and spirit. 

“The scene was great! The lavender fields in the rural Southern France was amazing. It coloured the countryside with purple, pink and together with the blue sky, these formed one of the best memory of my travel life. The guide was amazing that she had much knowledge about the area and told a lot of stories. The trip was brilliant.”
