Amazing day tour of towns and village around Aix

We were so lucky to have Janicke as our guide for what turned out to be a private tour of the villages and Van Gogh. She picked us up in a small car and took us to see the towns, the sites, the foods and we followed Van Gogh's travels. And the restaurant she took us to for lunch, amazing.... More

Our family of four spent two wonderful days with Sarah from “Discover Provence” in July exploring the beautiful region. Sarah was excellent to deal with right from the start and helped tailor the two days to ensure we saw and did everything we wanted to see and do. Every day was fun and interesting thanks to Sarah’s extensive knowledge and... More

I have to admit: I'm incredibly skeptical of day tours. I'm always hesitant to book them in fear that the format will be too rigid, that I won't really get to explore as I'd want to, that I'll miss out on the things that interest ME, personally. But my friend really wanted to do a day tour of the Luberon,... More

Our family of six had way too few days to explore Provence and found the solution in having tours set up with Discover Provence before our arrival in the South of France. In addition to one full day on our own to explore Aix, we took a 1/2 day tour of Cassis with a boat ride to three calanques and... More

Our guide, Janika, was exceptional! Each of the numerous Luberon villages she took us to was unique and charming and she was knowledgable about all aspects of the region. We had a lovely and leisurely lunch at a family restaurant and the tour ended with a very nice wine tasting at winery with superb gardens. This tour is not cheap,... More

My mother and I did the full day Luberon villages tour with Sarah in July and it was the highlight of our trip to Aix-en-Provence. Sarah was so knowledgeable about the history and culture of the region, and took us to some charming and hidden parts of several of the Luberon villages. When we were growing hot in the afternoon,...

Sarah of Discover Provence set up 3 tours for us. After talking to us and understanding we wanted to focus on the painters of the area she modified her tours to meet our needs. We will always remember the Chagall and Van Gogh Exhibits, the afternoon spent learning about Cezanne and the spectacular hill towns. Both Sarah and Janike are... More

While my husband was at work, I went on a day tour with Janicke. She was a great tour guide. She had a vast amount of knowledge and love for the city and surrounding area. My favorite meal for my entire 10 day trip was with this tour, fish soup by water in Cassis. Amazing.

Our friends joined us for a magical day in the kitchen of Marie Helen for a cooking class in the Provençal style, arranged by Discover Provence. We had a magical day, which started with Marie Hèlen's warm hospitality welcoming us with coffee and cookies. She had just been to the market that morning and her kitchen was full of gorgeous...

Two of us joined Janicke on the Perched Villages Tour and it was outstanding. The small group size (5) worked really well. Janicke was very knowledgable about the area and made sure that we all got a chance to see what we were interested in. Plenty of stops for photos too, which was nice. A really nice extra touch was...
