“Aix,Cassis and Marseilles trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

We were with Brice on a day trip to these places and really enjoyed ourselves, even tho we didn't know anyone else on the trip. We soon became a group having a good time with him. He is a character for sure.
Marseilles is a lovely city and he showed it off well, Cassis is a gorgeous village and the overlook he took us to prior gave breathtaking views. Aix is more of a provisional town but not without charm.
Would recommend them to anyone.

“Wonderful Tour..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

Our group just came back from a cruise to the Mediterranean. We had a group of 19 people. 10 adults and 9 kids, and decided to book a tour with Provence Connection. Silvio took care on all the logistics. He was always prompt, courteous and patient in answering all my questions. We had Brice, Christophe and Frank as tour guides. They were on time in meeting the group at the port, and were good at keeping the kids entertained which could be difficult sometimes. Unfortunately, it rained most of the day, but Brice, Christophe and Frank, went the extra mile, and gave us extra time to let the group enjoyed more of the city. Thank you guys! You rock!

“Provence Connection Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

So many things have happened since our tour in November 2012 with Brice. Now that the holidays are over and things have slowed down we wanted to let everyone know how much we enjoyed our tour. Brice was so knowledgeable about the surroundings and history of Toulon, Aix-en-Provence, and Marseille. We enjoyed the day immensely. We really enjoyed the market, where we tasted local cheese and breads. Brice gave us plenty of time to tour on our own but kept us on a tight schedule so we could see as much as possible in one day. The van was very easy to get in and out of, and was very clean. We would recommend Brice's tours to everyone.

“French Riviera”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

My wife and I just finished an all day tour to Monaco, Cannes, Nice and Eze with Provence Connection with our guide Cristophe and guide in training Frank.

We have used this type of tour before in other parts of Europe and consider today one of the best if not the very best, specifically in regard to the service, friendliness and knowledge of the area and sites. It was no worry that we did not speak French as they explained everything to us in English.

The unexpected highlight of the trip was Eze, a medieval city built on the side of a mountain. It gave a great opportunity to let us tour and imagine what life would have been like hundreds of years ago. Great shops as well where we purchased several unique items.

We highly recommend.

“Wonderfull day in Provence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

We spent the day with Silvio on a private tour. He was waiting as the ship docked at La Seyne-Sur-Mer (outside Toulon). We went to Marseille, Aix and Cassis. Silvio was a wonderful guide, the van was clean and comfortable. Silvio provided detailed information on the sites we visited and was good company. He is also an outstanding driver. On our way down from the Basilica de Notre Dame we ended up behind a tour bus that hit a car. There was no way down until the accident cleared. Silvio backed up on the uphill narrow road and found an alternative path down. We strongly recommend. A great trip, thanks.
