I had a half day available to explore the region around Marseille. William Templer worked with me to customize the brief time I had to see areas I was interested in. We saw the natural beauty of the area in the National Park (Parc national des Calanques) and around Cassis. These are areas I would never have gotten to see on my own. Wonderful tour! I highly recommend using One Day in Provence for general or custom sightseeing.

We had two wonderful days with William. We had originally booked him for two days one to maybe see lavender fields and one to transfer us to st tropez from aix-en-Provence. What a fantastic decision and investment this was. Of course the summer has been very hot and the lavender was harvested earlier - so he asked us what we wanted to do instead and we turned over planning to him… he took us to the most wonderful villages of Provence hidden away that we would never have found ourselves and then on our day trip to st Tropez took us to cassis and arranged a picture perfect morning for us. He was wonderful company and very patient with our tired and impatient 9 year old who after traveling a month in France was not very enthusiastic about more tours. We will plan to utilize the services of William again when we return (hopefully next time earlier to see the lavender!)

We had a full day excursion planned in July 2020 to visit Lavender fields etc. with William. On our last visit a few years back he was not available and we felt lucky to get our first choice of booking date for the lavender season this year. William is very responsive and we got it all set up with payment of deposit. That was in Dec. 2019. Fast forward to April and Covid 19 and we finally made a decision that traveling this summer internationally was not smart or maybe even possible for us. Contacted William and he was most kind and immediately offered full refund. It was processed in a timely manner and we really hope to be able to return in the future and tour with William. I often find the true test of a good travel company is how they handle unexpected problems and can be flexible. Clearly not only does William have great reviews on TA for his tours but he is also been so understanding due to Covid 19. We look forward to meeting him next year!

William is phenomenal! He has a wealth of knowledge about Provence. Beaucoup de fun historical facts. We did a half day tour of Cassis and even though the wineries were sold out of their best wines, he took us to a shop where we could purchase some. A tour of the Luberon was a highlight. He customized our tour and he reserved us a table at a delightful cafe for lunch in Oppéd. Our day trip to St. Rémy, Les Baux, and Carrières de Lumières was also spectacular, again featuring a lovely lunch spot. He was able to find the best places to shop for wine, gifts and clothing. He goes the extra mile every time, offering to assist with anything to make your vacation in Provence more pleasurable: restaurant recommendations, help with shipping purchases, even offering sound philosophy when Covid complications struck family back home. He saved us money with invaluable travel advice We got to know him so well that he felt like family. We are definitely going to stay in touch. Your trip to Provence would be enhanced immensely with tours from William!

William was our personal tour guide for the day. He has a vast wealth of knowledge of the region. We started the morning off with a truffle hunt then proceeded to Lourmarin where he pointed out a very unique shop, Franc 1884, that has revived an old regional tradition. It’s the only place in the world to get these lavender diffusers. Then we stopped by Château de Beaupré for wonderful wine tasting. We couldn’t visit Provence without trying their infamous wines! And to finish off the day we explored central Aix-en-Provence.

All this in just a day! William created the itinerary and I’m so grateful, because it truly gave us an insider’s experience of Provence.

We will return in the spring to explore Marseille!

Our tour of Provence gave us the opportunity to cover a lot of ground with stops curated for my group's tastes and interests. We toured Roman ruins, shopped a quaint market in Eygalières, enjoyed the gardens that inspired Van Gogh, dined in St. Rémy, and took in the views from one of Frank Gehry's buildings. It was a stress-free day that hit all the right notes. I would recommend William and his tour company to anyone that wants to see the best of Provence.

We are just leaving Provence and the South of France after 5 days touring with William Templer of One Day in Provence. Our experience has been magnificent due to his professionalism, excellent English, knowledge of the region and its history and his wonderful sense of humour!
If you plan to visit-Do Not Hesitate to book with him. After touring with many guides all over the world- we can honesty say with certainty: you will be glad you did!

We hired William on our first day in Aix-en-Provence. By the end of the day, we had seen the beauty of several villages and heard countless historical facts. We stopped for a delicious lunch in a charming local restaurant in Gordes and enjoyed the Rosé of the region! Spending the day with William was such a pleasure so much so that we hired him for three more days! We truly felt like we experienced the best of Provence. William also introduced us to the French Riviera (Cannes, Antibe). We had to say goodbye in Nice but having had such an excellent personal guide experience with William, we have decided to return next year!

We were on a cruise that was stopping in Marseille. Looking at the map, I decided that if we were going to be that close to Châteauneuf du pape I wanted to go! I tasked my husband with figuring out a way to visit while we were in the cruise port. He contracted William at one day in Provence and organized for a small group us (4 people) to be picked up at the cruise port and do a private tour. We started the day early and drove out to Châteauneuf du pape and visited our first winery. William was so friendly and pleasant to speak to on our drive out, which took about an hour. Our first stop was Chateau de Vaudieu, where we were warmly welcomed and given a wonderful tour by William of the grounds and then had a great tasting. This was a beautiful property with exceptional wines! Our next stop was at Domaine La Barroche where we met Manon, who was fantastic. We loved the tour and the wines and we even shipped a case back to the US. Manon was so kind and she made us feel welcomed and we really enjoyed speaking with her. We grabbed lunch after those two stops, and thankfully we had William to guide us on the menu since none of use speak French! We did a little walking around in the area that we had lunch and then we headed back towards Marseille. We stopped at one more winery in Aix-en-Provence on our way back to the cruise port. It was lovely and it was a beautiful property as well. I would 100% recommend William. We had such a lovely time. It was my 45th birthday and this was gift from my husband and we had two friends who joined us. William made our experience special and if we are evern back in the area again, we will absolutely call William!! Thank you William for putting up with us Americans, who don't speak French, and giving us a fantastic memory!
