This was our second time with Janicke from Discover Provence. She was able to tour us for two days during our trip to Provence. One day was a Roman day. On this day we explored the theatre of Orange and the Arc de Triomphe of Orange and then we went to Glanum to see the Roman ruins of Glanum. The... More

So we have kids - ranging from solid teenage to 6 year old. They can be tough on tour guides. Hell, I can be tough of tour guides. However, Jacky, our guide in Aix, handled us all very well. Getting into enough detail to satisfy me but keeping it interesting for the kids to enjoy what they were seeing. So... More

Like other's, we only had one full day to spend it Provence and wanted to make the most of it. I am so thankful that we booked the Town and Country tour instead of wondering aimless around Aix, not really knowing at what we were seeing. Both Sarah and Janicke are the most delightful ladies. Janicke took us on the... More

My friends and I were visiting Provence for the day and wanted to jam everything there was to do here in one day! Not many tours let alone tour guides catered to our specific needs. So thankfully we saw Sarah's listing on trip advisor! She customized an all day tour for us and it was just incredible! She was so... More

I booked this last minute as I wanted to spend a day exploring the surrounds of Aix en Provence. Because of my restricted dates the only tour that Sarah had available was the 'Van Gogh, Arles and Les Baux-de-Provence' trip Though this would not have been a tour I would normally avail of, I must say it was one of...

I spent 3 weeks traveling around parts of Spain, France, and Ireland and this tour was one of the highlights of my trip. It was incredibly well planned and put together. The tour guides were knowledgable and friendly. Provence is spectacularly beautiful and this tour really helped us to get an understanding of this region that we otherwise wouldn't have... More

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
