Our guide that we hired became ill and she asked Claire to be our guide in St. Remy. Claire was a terrific guide. She is extremely knowledgeable and wants to share her passion for the area with you. She took us up to Le Baux through a winding road that led to an overlook of the town. What a magnificent view. As we toured the town, she told us stories that enhanced our experience. She suggested that we see an art show in the quarry near Le Baux. What an experience. Do not miss this. My friends and I were so glad to have experienced Arles and Carmargue with Claire. She made sure that we were immersed in the culture of the area. We even saw a rodeo!!!!!! Thank you Claire for a wonderful day.

We went on two tours organized by Claire, one with a group of about 20 for 3 days and a one day tour just the 3 of us, myself, my wife and Claire. We had a terrific time with each. She knows Provence well and took us to big as well as little known attractions. She is well organized, friendly and a pleasure to be with. Making quick decisions to alter the itinerary wasn't a problem at all for her. Easy-going and knowledgeable is her characteristic. Highly recommend.

Three friends and I recently spent two full days with Claire traveling in the Provence area. She picked us up at our hotel in Avignon and took us to many wonderful places including a local goat farm which we would not have experienced (including the local goat cheese) without her. Visited small, out of the way places, as well as Aix en Provence which we had requested. She took us to great restaurants and we even had an opportunity to dip our feet in the Mediterranean. Claire is funny, charming, and an enthusiastic guide. She took a bunch of pictures during the two days and sent them to us a few days later. Highly recommend Claire.

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!
