You have a choice, you can fumble around in the dark or you can lean on the expertise of others. Sarah and her “Discover Provence - Custom Guided Day Tours of Provence in English” are like a flood light – we just booked a walking tour of Aix-en-Provence – as I’m a wheelchair user that had to be taken into...

This review is long overdue! We visited Provence in September and had the pleasure of spending the day with Sarah visiting Arles, Les Baux, St. Remy and an olive mill. Sarah customized our trip beautifully to meet our needs. Her knowledge of the local area and history was incredible. Without her, we would have seen buildings and streets. With her,... More

Last month my husband and I plus 2 of our best friends toured with Sarah Pernet in Provence. Sarah planned 3 perfect days for us and adjusted the itinerary when we had previously visited a site. She was very informative and pleasant to spend time with discussing the history and culture of the area. One of our favorites was a... More

We recently had the opportunity of visiting Provence and chose Discover Provence Day Tours to showcase the highlights of the area. Sarah picked us up at our hotel in Aix on the first day, and we toured Arles and other significant places in Van Gogh's life, as well as a local olive mill. Sarah made it a fun and informative...

We only had one full day in Aix so we decided to hire a tour guide to see as much as we possibly could in that time. We booked the "One Day in Provence" tour. We met our guide, Janicke, and another couple who had also booked the tour on that day, in the morning at the main circle in... More

My husband and I had one day in Provence as a port on the Mediterranean leg of an ocean crossing. We wanted a more thorough experience in Aix than we had had on a previous trip to Provence. Janicke was our guide and she was wonderful. She met us at the ship promptly and drove us to Aix. We hit... More

This review is LONG overdue. We took a 10 day vacation to France in early October and had the luxury of going on a tour with Janicke. We spent the day seeing the Luberon Villages and Casis. Looking back my fiance and I both agree that day was the highlight of our whole vacation. Janicke was the sweetest tour guide.... More

My husband and I spent the last day of our vacation in France with Sarah, who showed us the glories of the Luberon Valley. Not only was the weather absolutely perfect (did I mention how fabulous the light is???) but Sarah was an informed and entertaining guide. I can't wait to come back and take another tour with her. Cannot... More

We have just returned from a marvelous two week trip to southern Burgundy and Provence and want to mention one special afternoon. It was a cool and overcast day in Aix, but we shared a warm connection with our guide, Janicke. She spent the afternoon with us guiding us through the labyrinth of streets, and sharing the culture, history, and... More

Last month we took two tours with Discover Provence - Luberon Villages with Janicke and Chateauneuf-du-Pape with Romain. Wonderful time and great memories! Thank you Guys! Romain is truly an wine expert!
