We had 2 wonderful days with Jane Satow from Provence Cultural Tours. She is the perfect guide - well immersed in local culture, a good story teller, knowledgeable about everything from food to wine to architecture to history and able to share just the right amount of information. We were a multi-generational group ranging in age from 3 to 70 and she hit the right notes for every one of us, from delighting the 3 year with a visit to a goat farm (while the adults learned about artisinal cheese making) to amazing the adults with a tour of wineries and engaging all of us with a picnic at the Pont du Gard. I highly recommend booking excursions with Jane.

We were on our honeymoon and it was our best decision to use a private tour. Jane and Sharon were really professional and had best knowledge of Provence. On our first day, Sharon took us to Les Beux de Provence and St Remy. Since it's a private tour we can manage our own time. We also saved a lot of time by not having to find a parking lot. She dropped us where we wanted. If we drive our own car we must have at least two hours here.

On our second day, Jane took us to Luberon villages. Along the way she explained useful info about Provence which was really interesting. Jane is really nice and funny. We went to Gordes, Roussillon, Bonnieux, Lacoste.These villages are magnificent. Jane managed to have us having lunch at Le Fournil which serves fresh and good french food. I must say that this private tour made me appreciate Provence more in the time given. You get to travel with good guide, good people, having good food, seeing all the bests and worries free!

ทัวร์แบบส่วนตั้วส่วนตัวโดยไกด์ผู้เชียวชาญ ขอแนะนำเลยค่ะ สะดวก ง่าย พูดภาษาอังกฤษเข้าใจง่าย เค้าจะแนะนำสิ่งที่ดีที่สุดแบบจริงใจ ไม่มีแอบได้ค่าคอม ถ้าอยากทานอาหารเที่ยง อาหารเย็นยังไง จองให้ได้หมด อร่อยชัวร์ ไปรับตั้งแต่สถานีรถไฟ พาไปเชคอิน พาไปส่ง ระหว่างอยู่บนรถก็จะบรรยายความรู้ไปเรื่อยๆ ทำให้การมาเที่ยวได้ข้อมูลเชิงลึก ไม่ใช่ชะโงกทัวร์ สามารถจัดสรรเวลาได้เอง อยากอยู่เมืองไหนนาน ไหนเร็ว ดีมากๆค่ะ

We spent two days touring with Jane in Provence and had a wonderful time. She helped us navigate the language as well, as we do not (unfortunately!) speak French. We visited the beautiful hilltop towns in the Luberon on one day, and other beautiful cities and villages in D'es Alpines on the other. It would have taken us so long to find the "ins" and "outs" of all we saw on our own. With her help, we now know more about where we'd like to return. She is bright and friendly, with an excellent knowledge of the history and culture.

Jane Satow is an amazing guide and trip consultant in provence. We had a birthday celebration with 13 people. Jane arranged everything. She was amazing, knowledgeable, of great humor, flexible, she arranged three days of individualized tours of all different kinds of events to fit everyone's tastes. She found us great restaurants and got our large party in. She found specialty stores and sights for everyone's tastes. She was superbly well organized and perfect for Americans letting us know what we are doing and, would do in the future. She helped arrange a welcoming party, wine tasting and dinner for us. And she arranged for a great picnic where we bought things at the market. Finally she arranged for a chef to take us to the market, do a cooking class, serve a gourmet dinner, and total cleanup. She knew art, culture, history, food, wine. And she had a fabulous upbeat personality. We couldn't recommend anyone more.

I so enjoyed working with Jane Satow who I found to be a warm and knowledgeable guide of the provence area. She put together a wonderful week of touring of local villages and Provence towns ,restaurant dinners, picnics, market day visits and cooking classes for a group of us who were renting a house in provence. No request was too small. If you are planning a trip to this area for a few days or a week , enhance your experience and let her take care of your touring . I am a travel agent and can honestly say that finding Jane made the planning of this vacation effortless and enjoyable. Her company is Provence Cultural Day Tours and I promise you will not regret it.
