Gordana was a great and knowledgeable tour guide for our day, which was very full but was a wonderful overview of many sites and local charms. Definitely recommend for those who only have a day to see Provence and don’t want to drive.
My wife and myself enjoyed our tour of Provence even though the temperature touched 45 degree celsius. This was all due to our guide, Ms Gordana, who was cheerful, informative and always ready to provide answers to all our questions. The group was small (8 of us) and the minivan was a bit tight, Gordana made sure that all of us had a chance to rotate our seating around the van to ensure we had a chance to experience different views as we moved along the day. We had a great time visiting Provence as she introduced us to the region with good photo opportunities and even brought us to great lavender field for picture taking. She even made an effort to make a 'U' turn back to a great sunflower patch that we missed along the way. This was a wonderful trip made possible by a great guide in Gordana even though the transport was a bit tight.
Was a decent experience but got disappointed. Arranged and informed beforehand to incorporate Lumiere experience, agent was supposed to arrange but there were no results as promised. A lack of effort on their part to consider our interests.
Covered a lot of places in Provence. Short visits in each. The tour guide was quite knowledgeable and a good driver. The only issue was a lack of decent toilets; we were taken to the public toilets in the center of towns or parks. Many were too dirty to use. Better planning for pit stops would help.
The tour guide Gordana was excellent! The villages were wonderful, the country was fabulous! Highly recommend this tour!
This tour was amazing with an excellent tour guide (Anne) ,she was very efficient .I highly recommend this .Great way to experience Provence in a day!!
What a full and exciting day! Anne with Tour 4 Provence picked us up at 9 am and we spent the day touring Fountaine-de-Vaucluse, Gordes, Senanque Abbey, Roussillon, St. Remy-de-Provence, Les Baux de Provence and last but not least Pont du Gard. We has plenty of time to wander around ourselves to explore, with the exception of St. Remy, where Anne took us on a walking tour and of Gordes and the Abbey, which were beautiful photo ops. Anne was a lot of fun and happy to share all kinds of information about the Provence area, having grown up in Avignon. She purposely planned to arrive at Pont du Gard late in the day to catch the best light - an amazing sight. We arrived back in Avignon at 7 pm and really felt we had a wonderful experience. PS. - Anne's English was excellent - so easy to talk with her.
Short stops in many places. And need to pay extra for the ticket. Places are too crowded given summer times.
Gordana tell about all of historical viewpoint in Avignon, really appreciated and joyful along the trip. She also let us taking some photos in many view point we passed by. Very fantastic view and labender field.
Had a great day with Ann. She collected us from the pick up point and spent the next 9 hours showing us the highlights of Provence. We saw lavender feilds, beautiful springs, picturesque villages and towns and numerous photo opportunities.
Gordana was a terrific guide! She was funny, lively and had a lot of knowledge about the history of each location. She can customize your trip if you want to stay longer at a certain location but I thought the timing worked out well as is. She also knows the best photo opportunities along the way. I wouldn't change anything about the trip.
One word to describe: Amazing!!!! Join it while you are in Avignon or regret!
