Sarah was a generous and gracious guide. We enjoyed the mix of activities, the history we learned, the exposure to the lovely perch villages, the wine tasting and our interest in Cezanne! We would do another tour with her company in a minute!!

I was lucky to have a full day tour of the perched villages of the Luberon today with Sarah. Sarah's style and pacing was a perfect match for the postcard scenery. She took our small group to villages that are traditionally visited by tourists and to other villages that were just as stunning - but we were the only tourists... More

We generally get to know a city by going on a walking tour on our first day there. Sarah knows Aix so well and made it so interesting. We covered a lot of ground in a few hours but weren't rushed. We liked the tour and Sarah so much we scheduled a half day tour with Sarah, and her very... More

My family of 5 (daughters age 9,12 and 17) had a fabulous tour with Sarah seeing all the highlights of the city center. It focused on the history and development of the city and provided information interesting to ever family member. I would highly recommend for all visitors.

The half day tour subject itself is a very unique experience and Sarah's guidance made it all the more memorable. She took four of us on the tour this particular day but because of her passion you would have thought there were five tourist in the van. We were lucky enough to see plenty of fields of blooming lavender as... More

Sarah was a wonderful host as she took us to lavender fields and a distillery. Luckily for us, it's harvest time and we were able to see the work being done. I'm so glad we decided on this tour as we would have never found the distillery ourselves and were able to purchase 100% essential oil there. I highly recommend... More

We very much enjoyed our tour of the Provence region. The tour hit on historical, cultural and architectural prospectives of Aix. Sarah's knowledge of the region and its history brings the "personality" of the region to life! We enjoyed our drive out in the country where we explored the lavender fields and a local lavender distillery. What was also informative... More

We have never been to Provence so we have decided to be guided. And luckily, we have found Discover Provence and Janicke! The tour was just wonderful! We had a private day tour to the Luberon village and our guide Janicke was very well prepared, knowledgeable, sincere and understanding. She knew exactly what we wanted and it’s just like a... More

When researching our trip to southern France, Avignon kept popping up as the place for touring and we also kept seeing this place called Aix-en-Provence. After some research, we decided to stay in Aix instead of Avignon, which we think is the right thing to do. Next, you need to book some time with Sarah and Discover Provence. Our 3... More

The Discover Provence tour was easily the highlight of our two-week visit to France, and that includes Paris and the Cote d'Azure. Janicke, our tour guide, was personable and knowledgeable, and she showed us things that will forever stay in our memory -- Roman ruins, historic hillside Luberon sites, wine and olive centers, and the Van Gogh trail. We spent... More
