Each year, my dad and I take a trip to Europe. This year, we explored France; we ventured to Paris, Aix-En-Provence, Arles, & Lyon--we both agreed that the Tastes of Provence Tour in Aix was the highlight of our trip! We couldn't have been happier with Mathilde; she was welcoming, informative, and helpful. She started the tour by providing some... More

Matilda's tour of Aix is excellent! Her summary of the history of the town was better and more compete than the one we took from the City Tourist Office. The afternoon delights tour took us to a pastry shop, a chocolatier, a macaroon shop and ended with tastings a Matilda's kitchen with wine and cheese and tapenade. The suggestions in... More

Five of us arrived in Aix on a Monday afternoon, and early the next morning we met Mathilde near the large fountain at the rotonde on Cours Mirabeau. We then enjoyed four hours of the most interesting walk around Aix -- with fascinating information that she shared with us about the history of the area and the city (I wish... More

Our tour was fantastic. Mathilde showed us around the market and even had arranged for us to sample various foods from the region. Her knowledge of the history and culture of Aix is deep, and she communicates very well. Worth every penny!

For our business event, 'Taste of Provence' organized a gourmet-market tour for 70 people. All world-travelers and highly demanding. Mathilde and her team did an EXCELLENT job. We had three guides, Mathilde, Charlotte and Jennifer, the founder of 'Taste of Provence'. Every single person of our group was impressed by the knowledge and enthusiasm of all three guides and they... More

This was a wonderful walking tour of Aix-en-Provence. Mathilde is a great guide, filled with enthusiasm about her city, Aix. She took us to the hot spots, gave short concise histories and then to the farmer's market where the venders she knew gave us samples of their yummy products. She finished the tour with a visit to her "cooking school"... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our market tour and cooking class with Mathilde! As a guide, she was enthusiastic and extremely informative. The cooking class was one of the stand-out experiences of our trip - we can now brag that we've made creme brûlée in France! We would definitely recommend this activity!

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
