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

First of all, there would be no way to adequately put into words how fantastic we thought both "experiences" we booked with Sarah truly were, and they were both totally different and thoroughly Provencal! The first was the cooking demonstration with Marie-Helene (and Sarah) in Marie-Helene's own kitchen and home. It was the perfect introduction for the two of us... More

My friend and I had limited time to explore Provence and did not want to drive in Europe. We were so glad to discover Sarah from 'Discover Provence' who designed a brilliant itinerary for our two days that exactly matched what we wanted to see. The first day was spent exploring the famous Van Gogh sites and the second day... More

Janneke worked with us for 3 days, and helped us "see" Provence through her eyes. We toured Arles, Aix, and Cassis. She blended history, culture, art and a great sense of humor. We felt like we were friends of her family, and she was showing us the land that she loved. Highly recommend their services!

My daughter and I have done a number of day tours over the years, and these were two of the best. Our initial conversations with Sarah deciding what we wanted to do were helpful and efficient--she had a number of good ideas and was very willing to work with us to make sure we got what we wanted. We then... More

We booked our private tour with Discover Provence and had a wonderful day seeing the local fishing village and a lovely small town. This tour is much different then the type that you book through cruise lines as it was very personal and customized to our liking. Sarah was a great tour guide with lots of interesting information about the... More

This is by far one of the best day tours I have ever done. I felt as if I was going out with friends and enjoying a day in their part of the world. I couldn't have asked for more to be honest. Discover Provence listened to what we wanted to see and made it happen while still staying within... More

We loved our Provence vacation. Our 3 day tour with Sarah was truly the highlight. We didn't want to rent a car since neither of us like driving. I was really happy to see Discover Provence noted in "Things to Do". Sarah and the tour did not disappoint at all. We saw more of Provence than if we had driven... More

We've always dreamt of going to Provence ever since reading Peter Mayle's book, A Year in Provence. When the time finally came for my husband and I to visit, we realised that there were so many things to see. Thanks to Sarah Pernet's Discover Provence 3-day tour package. While it included all the places we wanted to see, we felt... More
