I offer Provence bound travelers private chauffeured excursions and a “change of pace” tour alternative, designed to suit every walk of life. My deep passion for my own region and my never-ending enthusiasm combine to insure that you will see and taste the best Provence has to offer with an emphasis on Cultural Tourism, Entertainment, & Gastronomy. 10 years of combined experience in the guest service and hospitality industries helped me understand the importance of a service that is dedicated to creating a reliable, personal, and positive travel experience. With a comfortable air-conditioned van, I can tour up to 6 passengers in my own vehicle, and up to 8 in a rental one. Along with my personal language skills and my natural curiosity and enjoyment of diverse cultures and people, you can be assured of a journey you will want to share and perhaps repeat.Representing the “heart” of my region to the world is my pleasure.

We spent a fabulous day with Marlene in May this year (sorry Marlene for taking so long to leave you a review!) and would do it again in a heartbeat. We were interested in scenery, pottering around the Luberon hilltowns, wine and local food, and Marlene put together a terrific itinerary crafted to suit. We started our day at a... More

Our group of 3 couples had a few days to spend in the Provence area before heading back to Nice. We all wanted to get a good taste of the area so we decided a private guide was the way to go. I came across Marlene, read her reviews, and contacted her. I felt that she was very responsive especially... More

I was in a small group of women touring Provence areas of St. Remy, Arles, Avignon, among others. I have been to Provence on my own before, but my experience expanded a hundredfold with Marlene as our guide. She is enthusiastic and oh so knowledgeable about the area, good-hearted, patient, fun-loving, and energetic. She knew the best cooking class, the... More

Our small group spent four fantastic days in Provence with Marlene of Experience Provence. Her enthusiasm and energy are amazing not to mention her knowledge of wines, history and local food. I would not hesitate to recommend Experience Provence.

This was our first visit to Provence and we are so glad we opted for the guided tour. We would never have had the same experience and insider knowledge that Marlene, as a native provided. We visited a number of villages and wineries and had unique experiences dining at the homes of two Provencal natives! When we come back, we... More

My husband and I planned a River Cruise from Paris to Avignon but wanted to extend in Avignon for four days of day trips. I found Experience Provence and Marlene through reviews on Tripadvisor. She was exactly what we wished! I told her what we wanted to do and see and she made an itinerary perfectly customized to our wishes.... More
