Paul did a great job. We booked through trip advisor and he was waiting for us as soon as we got off the boat Both stops were enjoyable and he made the most of our time. Excellent driver and a nice van to ride in.

Paul personalized this tour for the 6 of us that were in our van. I can't say enough about his knowledge of the area and his passion for France and the places we visited. It was the highlight of our 10 day cruise!

Took this tour with Paul last week and other tourists. Centrally located pickup location. He spoke very good English for some of us and French for others in the group. He did a great job of making all of us on the tour feel comfortable with each other. This was a very full day with a good amount of time at various stops throughout the tour. (taking traffic and crowds at some spots into consideration) Absolutely loved Nice. It’s a place I’d like to return to in the future. The scenery throughout the entire day was spectacular! Visiting Fragonard perfumery was a nice touch at the end of the day. Strongly recommend this tour! Excellent value for the money.

We spent a great day on the Azure cost, along with Paul, our driver and guide at this time. I left Aix, I got to Cannes, I saw the main attractions, continued to Nice, Monaco and finished with Fragonard perfume factory, and Eze village. We visited the most important tourist attractions by car while our guide has enriched our general culture with information and anecdotes that we did not know about the region.
I think it's an effective way to visit, photograph, see and take full advantage of the Azure Coast!
I truly recommend doing this!

We were on Symphony of the seas and booked this full day tour. We were happy to find a tour that would include visiting both Aix en Provence and Cassis. We were met by Noelle and had a small group tour in a comfortable van. Noelle was knowledgeable and informative. She gave us plenty of free time while making suggestions for where to eat and what to see on our own.
It was a great day. While on a shore excursion with a private company, I sometimes worry about getting back to the ship on time. Noelle knew the area well, knew the travel time and even checked traffic reports to make sure all would go smoothly.
One of the highlights was visiting Cape Canaille, with its breathtaking views.

We had prebooked a half day tour with Provence Connections for our stay in Marseille as well as booking a transfer for my wife and I to Arles two days later. Paul picked us up in a timely manner from our hotel and gave us a wonderful and informative half day tour of Marseille.Silvio joined us for a portion of the tour and they completely met our expectations. Paul took us to areas of Marseille which were out of the way and beautiful. His knowledge, intelligence and delivery are excellent. Well...we were so happy with the half day tour that we decided to continue on to Cassis on the same day. The entire day was informative and comprehensive. Two days later Silvio transferred us to Arles and gave us more information on the area. In summary, wonderful tour company with professional individuals.

We came off of our Symphony of the Seas cruise and were immediately greeted by Simon. He was very entertaining and informative during our tour to Aix-en-Provence and Cassis. In Aix-en-Provence there were some breathtaking sights where we could photograph the city. We saw the marketplace and had a chance to grab an awesome French pastry before moving on to Cassis. In Cassis, we had an opportunity to have a nice lunch outside while enjoying the beautiful scenery of the boats and water. Afterwards, we drove to the beautiful Notre-Dame de la Garde to walk through it. It was a most enjoyable day.

Myself and two friends went on this day trip. We got list on the way to the meeting point. They found us and were gracious and kind. Paul was an excellent and knowledgeable guide. The places we visited were of great interest. The pacing if the tour was perfect and we had a fabulous day in Provence. I highly recommend this tour and this company.

We arrived at the port of Marseille via a cruise ship and easily found our driver Paul who took us on an amazing tour of southern France. My family and I like to see a lot during our visits and Paul made this possible without feeling rushed. He was very accommodating and flexible as we had drinks at the Café that inspired Van Gogh's famous painting, we toured a number of ancient cities, we visited the Pope's Palace and even had ice cream in Les Baux. As we drove between these locations, Paul told us stories about his country and its history which kept the entire family both young and old interested. I would highly recommend Paul and Provence Connection.
