4 of us toured Provence with Silvio while our cruise ship was in port and what a day it was !! Not only did he take us to the sites we were interested in, but he had a few of his own special spots that added so much to our wonderful experience. His informative and relaxed demeanor were a perfect blend in not only showing us the land he loves, but guiding us through some history and culture of the area. This was without a doubt a First-Class tour !!

Cruising on Nieuw Amsterdam with HAL, the 12 of us had no more than 7 hours to see Marseille. Even though we made it clear when booking the tour that we had a toddler, this information somehow did not make it to Christoph and Claire(spelling?). We were lucky that they magically found someone with a car seat so we could begin our tour in two cars. After driving through the beautiful country side to avoid traffic, we visited Aix-en-Provence, did a wine tour and tasting at Château Lacoste, a photo stop at a red poppy field before a stop in Lurmarin.

All in all Christoph was extremely knowledgeable, pleasant and humorous and genuine Claire patiently satisfied our inquisitiveness about Marseille. She was also very thoughtful. With two elderly parents traveling with us, we did not feel rushed. In addition to giving us a relaxing and memorable tour, they managed to help us in many ways upon request. We definitely recommend them!

We joined Provence Connection for a Day Tour to Marseille, Aix-en-Provence and Cassis on June 28th. We were met by Paul, our guide and driver for the day. He was patient and knowledgeable, even volunteering to stay in the van to look after our son was was sleeping.

Paul took the time to answers any question that we had, and did not rush us while we are busy taking pictures and generously offer to help to us take the pictures so that we can be in the pictures.

We were brought to many nice sites in the 3 towns that we visited, places that we will not see if we went on our own. Aix is a very nice town, but most probably we would have gotten lost if not for Paul guiding us.

Thumbs up!

Thanks Paul and Provence Connection

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company! I spent a lot of time on the internet booking tours in 5 cities. Usually I would receive an automated response. Most times I received a short quick one liner for a response. However I felt like Silvio was really out there to help. I had a question about trains in Marseille and he even took the time to look up some info for me and make a suggestion. What service! Frank was our tour guide and he was just as great! It really was like having a relative pick us up and tour us around. He seemed to know just what would be right for us and our teenage sons. He was very knowledgable, and interesting to listen to. It was obvious that this company had no other agenda other than to make sure we had a good time! Thanks so much Frank and Silvio. :))

I cannot say enough great things about our experience on our trip with Brice touring the Luberon. He is animated, knowledgable, and funny! We visited several quaint villages throughout the Luberon including Lourmarin,Roussillon,Fontaine de Vaucluse, Gorges and the amazing lavender fields. You are given free time in each town to get a flavor of each. This tour is an incredible value.
I also want to share that the owner Silvio is very responsive. He wrote detailed emails answering my questions in advance of booking. Thank you Silvio and Brice for a truly memorable experience!
