I booked a Best of Aix package before I left for France as a surprise for my wife and I was really looking forward to it. When our date arrived, I went to the designated meeting place and waited for over half an hour past the meeting time. I then left my wife at the meeting place while I went... More

Hi Chris, I want to personally apologize for the last-minute cancellation and to you and your wife having anything but a great experience with us. It was due to extenuating circumstances and not due to the fact that enough people hadn't booked (our minimum is two people which you had booked) that we had to cancel. As soon as we... More

It is safe to say that our experience in Aix would not have been the same without the skillful and knowledgeable guidance of Wine in Provence! Hilary was great and had the ability to cater to wine beginners and wine connoisseurs. My favorite moment was probably when we literally got to bottle our own wine! As part of the wine... More

In the morning Hilary showed us around the food markets and shops selling cheeses, wine, cakes, macaroons, tea and coffee. We bought food items with her guidance and then brought them back to her home to prepare our own lunch, which turned out to be delicious - see photo. Accompanied by great wine and cheese. The whole event was very... More

We are Australians who have moved to Provence and we had a really enjoyable time with Hilary who was a enthusiastic and enjoyable guide. Hilary took us to some awesome wineries at the base of famous Mount Sainte Victoire. She was very informative and helped us to understand the art of wine making as well as the opportunity to enjoy...

I first traveled to Aix-en-Provence in 2008, when I met Hilary and Brian at one of their French Wine 101 tastings. I arrived knowing little to nothing about wine and feeling self-conscious about my ignorance. After a fun couple of hours with Hilary and Brian, all that changed! I left with a newfound appreciation for good wine and the wine-making... More

While visiting Aix I went on a small group tour with Wine in Provence. Hilary and her assistant Maddy were exceptional hosts and truly teach wine appreciation. We visited a beautiful chateau surrounded with ancient olive groves & terraced vineyards that I would have never found on my own. Wine in Provence exceeded my expectations and gave me a taste...

We loved our tour with Hillary - so full of life & a great knowledge of Aix-en-Provence! Starting out in the markets where we shopped for local produce for our lunch, as well as picking up some bits from the local cheese shop, butcher, wine shop, & bakery - shopping like the locals do! Along the way Hillary told us... More

My wife and I, along with 4 friends, spent a great 6 hours with Hilary shopping, cooking, learning about French food, wine and culture and laughing. Hilary was engaging and entertaining and led us on a food and wine shopping expedition through Aix's market while also filling us in on the history of the city and the market. We then... More

We shopped for our lunch in the local market on a Thursday morning and then went to explore some of the fascinating shops selling cheese, wine, olive oils and breads all from... More

This past October my daughter & I traveled to Aix and signed up for Hilary's market day tour and cooking class. We were thrilled with the whole experience and found Hilary and her assistant to be incredibly knowledgeable and fun to be with. She explained the in's and out's of this fascinating world of French markets while we shopped for... More
