I rarely bother to write reviews, and my wife had organised our trip and well, another tour! However, the morning with Charlotte was simply magical. She clearly loves Aix. Her enthusiasm, knowledge and love of everything simply shone throne. Nothing was too much trouble. We learned just enough, but not too much. We tried everything - macaroons, cheeses, French coffee,... More

We took a morning market tour with Charlotte, and were disappointed with our tour. For $75/person, we didn't feel like the tour was accommodating for our specific requests, nor allowed us any freedom to explore things that we were interested in exploring. Charlotte mentioned multiple times that "Mathilde was busy with another class". We were unaware that we would get... More

We were fortunate to enjoy a morning tour of the Aix markets with Mathilde. She was a great communicator, took us to so many interesting stops with munchies along the way. I can't believe how little I know about food after being with her for a few hours. Really fun, do it!

My wife and I met Mathilde early in the morning of a market day on the main drag, and after a quick history lesson on the origins of Aix, we set off. Starting with a famous bakery where we sampled treats, we continued on to the markets and other shops all around Aix. We tried everything and Mathilde knew every... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Charlotte. She was an excellent guide. The tour was entirely in English. While the tour started with Aix's history, the focus was mainly on the foods, markets, and dining scene in Aix. Highly recommend this tour on your first or second day in Aix to fully take advantage of the shopping and restaurant recommendations... More

Good to walk through the city & have a chance to taste all the good and fresh food. Would be even better if we can have coffee at the traditional coffee shop to appreciate its "ancient" decoration.

We enjoyed our tour with Charlotte. She told us much about the local history and took us to interesting areas and all the markets. I would highly recommend this tour. We made lunch of the tastings!

Mathilde with Tasts of Provence provided a wonderfully informative Market tour of Aix. Her knowledge was impeccable. Well worth it..

We were excited for the Savouring Aix food tour, but sadly it did not meet our expectations. We did many food tours throughout our 7 week trip in Europe and sadly this was the only one that left us disappointed. The tour finished more than an hour earlier than advertised, and did not have as many tastings as promised. This... More

We just enjoyed a three course cooking class with Mathilde. She was gracious and informative. My twelve year old daughter attended and Mathilde went out of her way to involve her in all the cooking steps. We started with a history about Aix, then a market tour with tasting samples. The day ended back at Mathilde's kitchen where we cooked... More
