    Excellent tour and guide Nico did an excellent job. Took us to some back roads to view lavender without the other tourist. Awesome day, highly recommend tour.

    We enjoyed our tour tremendously. Our tour guide Veronica was super friendly and bubbly, that made our tri even more enjoyable. Our group was consisted of people that spoke English, French, and Italian, Veronica was fluent in all three languages and was able to take time to explain everything. A big thank you to Veronica, we highly recommend.

    We had a great one day tour hosted by Nico (ProVans Tours). Tour showed up in time and we had a comfortable, clean van with air conditioning for the day which was very pleasant. Nico's English was very good and his narration throughout was friendly and informative and he was happy to answer any questions. This tour was their Violet tour which was a route of 175kms, The pacing was great and we had enough time at all the scheduled stops the museum, Senanque, Gordes, Rousillion and Sault. We are a bit early for the lavender to be in full bloom but Nico managed to find us some fields which were close and made excellent photos. Gordes was lovely and the restaurant recommendations were fab, Rousillion was also lovely and the hike around the ochre path was spectacular. All in all this was a great tour which we highly recommend and can't thank Nico and Veronica enough for making this such a great trip. The restaurant recommendations and places to see in Avignon were also very helpful and added to our enjoyment of the town. Merci beaucoup!

    Great tour guide who picked us up/ dropped us off from our hotel. Great day out with even some lavender farms seen off the beaten track.

    We really enjoyed the time that we had with this tour. We had 2 hours to enjoy our lunch at Roussion. The lavender fields were beautiful. The tour guide was excellent and attentive to our needs.

    This tour is a must if you are visiting Provence to see the lavender. We took this tour in July at the height of the lavender season. Veronica our guide was terrific. She was knowledgeable and made great efforts to make this tour a memorable one for us. She gave the tour group ample time to enjoy the sights, take pictures and gave great suggestions how to best spend our time at each stop. I highly recommend this tour!

    Enjoyed it very much. We saw everything we wanted to see and the driver/guide was very, very accommodating and resourceful!

    Nicola, our tour guide was excellent. When we though the lavender has been chopped off, he could actually find a very nice spot of lavender field that have not been chopped off. So our dream came true. He prepared drinks and even gave us a photo as souvenir. Very informative and worth the money to go with Nicola.

    What a wonderful experience! We were greeted, at our hotel, by Nicolas. He was a wonderful driver and tour guide. Nicolas went out of his way to find lavender that had not yet been harvested. Given that our tour date was rather later in the season, we were very worried. What we saw was just stunningly beautiful! The villages we visited we lovely and we enjoyed the entire tour immensely.
