Owner description: Let me take you on a private tour of the wonderful markets and charming shops in Aix-en-Provence. I will introduce you to my favourite speciality food shops and market stalls; I can help you purchase the ingredients for dinner or perhaps a picnic for lunch, or maybe just do some tasting of the best foods that Provence has to offer. Alternatively, my shopping tour will help you track down that special gift or reminder of your holiday in France. Shopping trips to Isle-sur-la-Sorgue, one of the largest antique markets in Europe are also available.

We had a wonderful experience with Rebecca tour in Aix-en-Provence! The good thing with her tour is that in a short time we could covered a large area of information regarding history of the town, location of important monuments and museums to visit, cathedral, the baroque architecture and nice places to shop presents, coffee, chocolate and local delight. She helped... More

A delightful inside view of the local food and markets in Aix. Rebecca, originally from England,showed us the highlights of the beautiful market and the vendors. She arranged tastings of some local specialties, olives, olive oil, cheese, bread with olives, and callisons to name a few. Everything was delicious. She also gives some wonderful history highlights so it was two... More

Thoroughly enjoyed touring the food markets with Rebecca! She managed a few tastings for us and showed us all the beautiful food that we would hope to see while in these great markets. Rebecca shared some local history as well as providing maps so that we might understand the city streets. It was also nice that she was British and... More

Rebecca was a great tour guide. Friends who were getting married in Aix hired her to entertain us guests for the afternoon, and it was an excellent idea. We visited markets, tasted cheese and delicious olive oils, visited an amazing bread shop and more. Rebecca also added in a good amount of history as we passed landmarks. Definitely recommend her!

We had a lovely tour with Rebecca; it was exactly what we were looking for to both orient us to the city and to enjoy the food market. Without her, we'd likely be too shy to ask for tastings and to choose from all the amazing cheese, produce, and baked goods. She was an expert at the market and took... More

I had the opportunity to spend a week in Aix with my three teenagers. I am so glad that we decided to spend the first few hours with Rebecca. She taught us so much about the area and made it interesting for all of us! We found out where to go for almost anything, and this made the rest of... More

We were in Aix for only four days and Rebecca gave us a good understanding of the town and it's history. She also recommended a beautiful restaraunt for lunch, helped us buy items at the market, then took them back to our hotel so we could continue looking around. How wonderful! Her love of Aix shows in her comments indicating... More
