We spent a day with Claire on a recent trip to Avignon in May, 2013. We asked her to take us to Pont du Gard (a must see) and off-the-beaten-path villages. Wow! We got our money's worth! Claire is especially knowledgeable about obscure villages and out-of-the-way places that most tourists do not see. She gave us lots of anecdotal and historical information as we drove through Provence. Be aware that if you ask for her off-the-beaten path adventure, there is a lot of walking. It will be a long but very pleasurable day. Claire speaks very good English and is a pleasant companion. We spent several days in Avignon, and she gave us good information about where to eat and things to see. We would be happy to engage her services again.

Our best memory from our stay in France will undoubtedly be our meeting with Claire, definitely more than a guide. She has proved to be not only a travel guide but a fantastic travel companion for the 4 of us! It was such a great pleasure to join Claire in her comfortable car for an unforgetable trip! She will drive you safely on the gorgeous roads of Provence that she knows very well and will share with you her love for that amazing region as if you lived there: walks off the beaten track that only local people know, unexpected encounters with inhabitants thanks to her warm human contact, visits adapted to avoid crowds, evenings in picturesque villages to finish a wonderful day. She's always smiling, always in a very good mood and a wonderful joie de vivre! Whatever your desires are, Claire will organise the trip you dreamed of: La Provence de Claire is 100% tailor made tours! We are already planning to return to France next year with La Provence de Claire for a full week! Claire will not let you visit Provence, you will live it! Bon voyage!

We spent 2 days tour with Claire during our stay in Avignon, May13.
I love our customised unique 2 days itinerary , 1st day covering area in Luberon- mainly Roussillon, Goult, Gordes & Lacoste villages. 2nd day focusing on Van Gogh at Arles & Saint Remy, Carrieres de Lumieres & village at Les Baux de Provence.
She can accommodate our request to start our Day1 tour started from Avignon & ended in Les Baux de provence, Day2 tour started from Les Baux de Provence & ended in Avignon.

Prior to the tour, she promptly reply my email & clearly explain on what we expect during our tour.
During the tour, she show us everything in Provence & I personally like the local restaurant she brought us in Saint Remy, the provencal fish soup. She also take many great pictures of us.
After the tour, she even follow up & send us the photos, love it!

As a fans of Van Gogh, the best part of our tour is when Claire brought us to Saint Paul Asylum in Saint Remy, Langlois Bridge and Van Gogh café in Arles.
Claire is enthusiastic about her job, what can I say? I am looking forward my next trip with her during the lavender season.

Loved the tour, and got what we want to see from the fields and refinery. Ended up going at the perfect time of the season. My wife even got a chance to buy some lavender soaps and such. Guide was good as a local with experiences, but could have had more information background on several questions we asked. Overall we enjoyed the trip, and think we got our moneys worth.

Claire is a enthusiastic and great guide! We spent 2 days with her this May where she drove us to the picturesque Luberon villages of Roussillon / Goult / Lascote. We had fun time travelling with her and she is always ready to share her knowledge on the areas and sights we visit. We took many scenic photos along the way and we felt comfortable travelling with her. Last but not least, she was very flexible and accoomodating, as she drove us to the Langlois Bridge in Arles on the 2nd day after one of my friends made an additional request. (My friend is a Van Gogh fan...)
If we visit Provence again, we would definitely approach Claire as our guide again!
