We took a 2 1/2 hour walking tour of Aix with Janicke a few days ago and it was the absolute highlight of our stay in Aix. Janicke was the perfect combination of friendly, articulate and knowledgeable. We learned so much about the history of Aix in such a short period of time. Janicke showed us a variety of sites...

We were in Provence LAST June 2014 and had a marvelous whole day outing to the Luberon Valley with Janicke! What a tour! What a tour guide! She was superb in every way. So, when we decided to return to Provence this summer, we again looked to Discover Provence for a tour of the lavendar fields! And, just as we... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my day tour of Provence with Janicke. The day was perfectly paced with just the right amounts of both information and relaxation. It would have been impossible for me to see these sights on my own, much less learn everything that Janicke had to offer about the area.

We had a walking tour of Aix with Sarah from 3-5 and it was perfect, we would have never figured it out on our own! Then we travelled with Sarah for a Truffle Hunt in the countryside. The truffle farm and its owners were so accommodating and welcomed us in to thier home. We hunted and toured their farm and... More

My husband and I (38 & 40 from Australia) had the privilege of spending a day touring Provence with Janicke. She was a perfect host, full of knowledge about the local area and has lived in the area herself for many years. We loved the tour of Aix, but by far our favorite was the historical hilltop village Lourmarin where... More

My wife and I booked a tour for June 9 2015 with Discover Provence and had a wonderful, interesting, fun and fact filled tour. The time we spent seeing and learning about Provence and the area was the highlight of our 2 week vacation in France. Janicke was our primary tour guide for the morning and has a great depth...

My husband and I just returned from our travels to Provence. We are both experienced travelers and we can honestly say that Sarah provided the most wonderful tour we've ever been a part of! We went to the 5 perched villages, the tour of Aix, and the truffle hunting tour. We would have missed out on understanding the culture, the... More

We recently had the pleasure of two days with "Discover Provence" in the Luberon perched villages and in the Alpilles. We were with Janicke the first day and Sarah two days later. Both tours were delightful: beautiful small villages, vineyards, olive groves, and art. Both guides speak excellent English and work hard to tailor your tour to your special needs.

Sarah was a most knowledgeable host to six stunningly beautiful perched villages in the Luberon. It was a fantastic opportunity for me to visit villages I would not have been able to see without a car. The bonus was learning so much about the history and traditions of the area. Sarah was just a delight to spend a day with.... More
