Our private walking tour of Aix with Jennifer was one of the highlights of our vacation. We learned a great deal about the culture, food and wine along with some history. The 4 of us spent 3 hours walking through the old town, visited a wonderful market, met local vendors and tasted excellent local foods. We had some dietary restrictions and she was more than willing and able to accommodate us. Jennifer is originally from the U.S., so her English is perfect as well as her French. After the tour, she gave us a little booklet with information about Aix that was a nice touch. She also made a lunch reservation for us at a local restaurant, the Green Tomato, which was very good. Jennifer's tour is well worth the time and the price.

Jennifer possesses the one thing all good tour guides needs - LOVE for what she does. It is totally evident in the way she describes Aix, the things she points out and the little shops that she takes you to which are all well established gems that other tours might have missed. And all the shops seem to possess the same love for what they do and it shows in their products.

She was wonderful with a large group so I can imagine her being better with a smaller one. She was extremely organized and that organization made even the free time on the tour more enjoyable as she pointed out places of interest and let you explore on your own.

I would definitely go on another tour with her.

We had a great time exploring Aix en Provence with Jennifer. Her regular tours were already booked for the week, so we decided to arrange a private tour rather than miss out while we were in Aix. We were not disappointed. We meandered through the town exploring historical sites, sampling goodies from the top shops in town, and listened to her many wonderful stories about Aix. Thanks Jennifer!

Jennifer was an incredible hostess to our large group (about 24!). She went above and beyond to accommodate us and show us the best of Provence. She truly loves what she does and her excitement made us excited about exploring and discovering what Provence has to offer. Her tour is well rounded and her connections with the local artisans gave us opportunities to meet them and taste the very best they have to offer. Jennifer is a great teacher and we learned so much about the lifestyle and history of Provence - never boring! It was one of my favorite stops on our 5 country cruise, which had much to do with Jennifer!

Jennifer was amazing! She is knowledgeable, passionate and extremely organized. She met us timely at the hotel we agreed to and had pre-arranged with the owners of each little business. We enjoyed our tour of Aix and I was sad to leave. A wonderful, memorable day! Thank you Jennifer.
