Our group of 6 did the 3-day "Discover Provence" tour package with Sarah Pernet. We certainly enjoyed the Provence scenery and learnt much about the history and art of the region from Sarah, a highly professional dedicated and extremely knowledgeable guide. Sarah has carefully selected the places to see and we had no doubt at all that we would never... More

We had a private tour with Janicke, who was wonderful, exploring Cassis and the villages of Le Luberon. She was knowledge, kind and clearly passionate about Provence. We were initially hesitant to book the tour, given the price, but it was thoroughly worth it. So much better than in a large group setting. Interesting, fun and informative!

I cannot express how amazing our two tours with Discover Provence were. Janicke is everything all of the other reviews have expressed - she is charming, friendly, accommodating, and very knowledgable. We took the walking tour of Aix and her enthusiasm for the city was obvious. She knew so much about the history, plus how to best take advantage of... More

I searched the Internet quite a while before deciding on this tour operator. Now in retrospect, I’d like to say, both hands on heart, that I am completely satisfied with the services I received. Janicke, our tour guide, is convincingly knowledgeable, overwhelmingly pleasant and unforgivably chic. She took us to a hand-picked galaxy of French villages, each of which is... More

During our trip to France I wanted my daughter (age 15) to see a little more of Provence than Aix, even though it was wonderful. Since we were traveling by train and hadn't rented a car, I booked a half day with Discover Provence. Janicke, our guide, was absolutely delightful and informative. We felt like we were in the company... More

Sarah Pernet and her team have developed wonderful day tours with a focus on Art and History and Wine and Food. She is knowledgeable and prompt. You will not leave from your tour without a new appreciation for the Impressionist Artists and the local flavor of Aix. Wheter you go to Cassis, or the Luberon, or the Roman Antiquities, the... More

Thank you for your review and your generous comments about the Full Day Tour you took with Discover Provence to Arles, Les Baux de Provence and St Remy. Just a small precision: On a full day tour our clients are given the option to eat a full meal in a local restaurant or eat more simply with just a quick... More

My husband an I are both over 70 and wanted to see and learn more about this beautiful part of France. We booked our tour " A Day en Provence" with Sarah and were so thrilled with all that she had planned for the very diverse day. Her personal consideration for each of us in the group went beyond anything... More

We enjoyed a 'bespoke' 3 day tour of magnificent Provence and thanks to Sarah, we have wonderful memories of sights, experiences and meals. I cannot rate the personal service too highly. We visited The Valensol Plateau to see the gorgeous lavender and sunflower fields, visited the local market and then walked around three lovely Luberon villages. A final treat was... More

I am not normally one to take tours and I debated long and hard about renting a car and driving around the Provence countryside (as they did in all of those books). Boy, am I glad that I ditched that idea!! I decided to go with Sarah and Discover Provence and take her three-day tour. She was wonderful at helping... More

My husband and I spent a day with Janicke visiting the Luberon hilltop villages. We have been in France for 4 weeks and booked a number of tours but this was by far the best. Janicke was a wonderful companion rather than just being a guide and her knowledge and passion for the area gave us a wonderful experience of... More
