Sandy and I had the best time with Janicke, who is a partner with Sarah. She was not only very passionate about sharing Provence with us, but she was also a very engaging person with a broad range of interests and information that made the tour much more enjoyable. She was the kind of person you'd just like to spend... More

We had a lovely afternoon tour with Sarah and her friend Jackie (who is in training to lead tours). The drive to Cassis was made extra enjoyable because of the conversations we four shared about life in France and all kinds of other topics. The experience itself in Cassis was perfect - the weather cooperated, we saw beautiful sights and... More

We spent our final day in Provence on a delightful day trip with Discover Provence. After exploring Aix we enjoyed exquisite views of the Mediterranean and a wonderful lunch. Sarah, our tour guide, was informative, answering our questions and teaching us a great deal about this beautiful region. The whole day was a feast...for the eyes, taste buds, and the... More

After spending several months in the North of France, I have completely fallen in love with the lifestyle, architecture, and charm of the South thanks to 'Discover Provence'! The tour provided by 'Discover Provence' has completely changed my perceptions of France and has left me convinced that the Provence may be one of the most beautiful and lovely places on... More

Touring Provence with Sarah and our small group was a truly intimate and enriching experience! As we drove from one wonderful spot to the next, we chatted about the food, customs, fauna and flora of the region. Sarah had planned the day in a meticulous fashion, which included a lovely lunch under the red and white checked awnings of an... More

My wife and I decided to do the 2 day gourmet food and wine tour during our honeymoon stay in Aix En Provence. Our wine tour was with Romain who was extremely knowledgeable about the wine and general history in Provence. We had a great experience and learned an incredible amount throughout the day. Sarah took us on the food... More

Sarah and Janicke were fantastic during our three days in Provence. They gave us a great variety of places in the area, were flexible if we wanted to stay longer in some areas, and patient when we were running behind. They gave us great insight into the places we went, but also French culture, the history of the area, and... More

I am writing this on the last evening of our three day tour with Sarah. My husband and I have been fortunate to have traveled to many countries and have experienced the best and worst of tours. If you want to be on a bus with 40 people, wear headsets and have a guide that is not memorable or inspiring,... More
