        Oh La La - A bit of French Country Provence in Napier - Quiet & Beautiful
        Stunning Quiet Accomodation in Napier set in a quiet setting in a beautiful garden. We stayed for three nights perfect accommodation in French Country Style - welcoming muffins on the table. Two Rooms - Large Lounge at the front and good sized Bedroom out the back. The decor is antique French chic - comfy bed with high quality linen, good bathroom with hot shower and fluffy towels. There is a self service breakfast of cereals, fruit and toast provided along with coffee pods, teas. There is a microwave. This was all adequate for us but others may wish to go out for dinner. We absolutely loved this accomodation check in was easy and friendly. If you love something that fits in with a beautiful garden with mature trees and statues that you can take an evening stroll in. You might see a rabbit and there are some quail as well. The garden has a gazebo and covered area just outside for use. This is suitable for couples.

        Simon/Cupkovic French Experience
        Our guide, Laurent Nurisso, was excellent. We actually did three full day tours including the tiny hilltop villages tour from Gordes to Lourmarin, Marseille, Cassis, Nice, and Cannes, among other cities. It was historical, educational, fun and a real exhilarating workout, too! On future trips to France, we would definitely use OohProvence again and strongly recommend them!!

        Simon/Cupkovic France Trip
        Our tour guide, Laurent Nurisso of OohProvence was excellent! We had three full days of tours in Provence in the south of France and it could not have been better. It was historical, educational, fun and an excellent workout. We would definitely use OohProvence again on our future trips to France!!

        Absolutely Wonderful!
        My husband and I were on a cruise and had limited time to explore Provence. The Ooh Provence team organized a perfect day with visits to three wineries, a fantastic lunch, and a beautiful drive with views of Mont Sante Victoire. It was a bank holiday, so scheduling visits required an extra effort, but it was absolutely perfect. Highly recommend!

        Excellent Tour
        This private tour was well worth the price. Our tour guide, Laurent, sent us a text message the night before to introduce himself and let us know where to meet him at the cruise port. He was there holding a sign with my name right on time. We arrived in Provence early so Laurent took us to the top of the mountain where we were treated to magnificent views of the French countryside. He took us to three local wineries of varying sizes, but all of them were small, family owned vineyards where we received personal service and a personal tasting guide. Two of them gave us an extensive "behind the scenes" tour of their own wine making process and we walked the vineyards, entered the cellars and saw the holding tanks and barrels so we could see how the wine is processed from vine to bottle. One of them had a small restaurant where we enjoyed a delicious lunch, accompanied by their own wine, of course (the lunch is not included as stated in the tour description but it was not expensive). Our guide ate lunch with us and we enjoyed getting to know each other and became friends. We tried so many different wines that we lost count, but it was probably close to two dozen by the end of the day. The car was very clean and he had cold waters for us as needed. Laurent even gave us a small gift upon departure. We felt fortunate to have such a local, knowledgeable guide - it felt more like a family friend showing us around his town. I would highly recommend this tour and that you request Laurent as your guide.

        An amazing experience!
        Christopher is an excellent guide. He provided us background in the region and guided us through our tastings in our first visit to Chateauneuf du Pape. I highly recommend Oop Provence if you are traveling in this region. They can enhance your visit and mike it unforgettable. The private tour is so worth it!

        Best vacation experience so far!
        We had a great day in Châteauneuf du Pape with Chris! It was nice to have everything arranged beforehand and get a second take on the wineries and the history of the region. Lunch was a real treat, and we liked the wine so much we ended up shipping a case home. Overall a great experience, especially if, like us, you only have one day to take in the Châteauneuf region!

        Great experience!
        So glad I booked this tour! We had an amazing day with Christopher at the wineries of Chateauneuf du Pape. He organized the whole day & gave us a range of different wineries. He was friendly, knowledgeable & was our resident photographer! My husband and I were so pleased. Christopher went above & beyond and helped make recommendations for the rest of our trip. I highly recommend this tour.

        Delightful day wine tasting in Chateaunuef du pape
        We had a fabulous day with Christopher in Chateaunuef de Pape. We tasted many delightful wines, toured the area and surrounding towns and had a delightful lunch in a neighboring village. We highly recommend Ooh Provence for your next visit. We loved our day!

        Amazing Contemporary art Displayed in a vineyard!
        This is a worthwhile tour to take. I advise taking the first tour at 10 AM with a guide. We had an English speaking guide, who was extremely knowledgeable. This is an art project in progress. It seems that art is acquired on a very select basis and placed throughout the 600 acres of land, most of which is a working vineyard. After the tour, there are several restaurants where one can have a delicious meal.

        Wonderful, stress free day in Provence
        ne of the highlights on our recent Mediterranean cruise was the opportunity to spend the day with OohProvence and Christopher Curtis. After arriving in Marseille, Christopher picked us up at the cruise dock and we spent an amazing day exploring some of the less crowded areas of Provence--an olive farm, a farmer's market, a castle and some wonderful wine tasting. Chris was a great communicator (in English and French) and had some fantastic ideas for a wide range of activities that we would never have known about. He was also careful to get us back to the ship on time for sailing that night. I highly recommend OohProvence for your guide to Provence--luxurious and stress-free.

        Nice place - Average tour
        Nice walk through Arles. we stayed after the walk to see other sites that were not included and were glad we did. The formal tour is minimal, at best.

        Day trip to visit Cassis & the Calanques
        My wife and I did the “day trip” visit to Cassis with Laurent of OohProvence booked thru Viator. We have to say Laurent was a wonderful guide and host for our private tour. He surprised us with extra stops at the Norte Dame de la Garde, a small fishing port in the 8th Arrondissment and a winery in the hills above Cassis. Laurent was the perfect host for a wonderful 10 hour day.

        An excellent day in Avignon
        Christopher was the perfect guide— it’s like a friend showing you around their favorite city. He gave us just enough information to give us a sense of the history and culture, but not so much that we got overwhelmed. The Palais des Papes is a lot to take in during one visit, but he made it work beautifully. He also knows the entire region well and had good advice for our continuing exploration of Provence and the Luberon. We would happily take more tours with him and his company.

      Avignon's history, local culture & the wines of Châteauneuf du Pape private tour is very informative excurtion, The guide Laurent is very competent and will give you a lot of info about history of this region, it is very useful excurtion for people who are interested in history and architecture. I would maybe make the Avignion visit a bit shorter and to make Châteauneuf du Pape winery visit longer, with more detailed observing and slower and more comprehensive degustation.
      Thank you OohProvance and Laurent specially for this great day! Very prfessional and responsible company.

      Thank you for your review, I'm super happy you enjoyed your visit. I hope the balance of visiting Avignon and Châteauneuf du Pape somehow manages to bring together the two elements of this interesting story. Hope to welcome you back again when you next visit the South of France. Cordialement Laurent OohProvence.

      We had an absolutely lovely time with Laurent visiting Avignon. Learning the history of Avignon, touring the castle and finally wine tasting at Chateauneuf du Pape was amazing! We even bought some wine to ship home! It was a wonderful way to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We highly recommend this tour and if you are lucky enough to have Laurent be your guide, it will be even better!
