Our problem was how to see all the small intimate places we had loved in Provence with 15 people of varying ages and interests and without doing any driving ourselves. Sarah Pernet and her colleague Janneke came to our rescue with their eight person vans and personalized tours of Provence. Their itinerary included some old familiar places for us and... More

Sarah provided my family with the perfect day in the Luberon. Her pace was ideal and she was very sensitive to our needs. Sarah was also great company, easy going, and incredibly knowledgeable. I would highly recommend her as a guide!

My fiancée and I spent a wonderful day with Sarah in Provence. Sarah immediately made us feel comfortable by tailoring the day to our specific interests. She took us all around Aix where she explained historical backgrounds and significance... she waited patiently as we did some shopping... and gave us the insider look at the city. After that we visited... More

We did a half-day tour to Cassis with Sarah on March 3rd. The weather was beautiful and I'm so happy we chose to take the chance on going to Cassis so early in the year. Sarah is a wonderful guide and told us about the surrounding area as she drove us to Cassis. I know that some people will choose... More

My wife, daughter studying abroad and I spent a superb day with Sarah touring around Aix-en-Provence and three of the magnificent "perch" towns in the hills of Luberon. During the morning tour of Aix, Sarah met us at the Rotonde (main fountain) and walked with us through the beautiful streets of Aix-touring the Cours Mirabeau, the Quartier Mazarin, the Eglise...

The two days my family and I spent with Sarah at Discover Provence were the most memorable part of our 2 week adventure in France. I can't thank our guide enough for being flexible with our plans and ensuring that our tours were nothing short of perfect. The first of our two tours with Discover Provence was comprised of a...

I am fortunate to have visited France several times prior to this trip but this was my first trip to Provence, and have to say this was the best trip yet due to Sarah's wonderful tours. Sarah is extremely knowledgeable about the area but the custom guided tour and flexibility based on what our group wanted to see made it... More

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
