    Fantastic tour, lovely towns visited with plenty of time at each. Very professionally organised and executed by Nicholas, our knowledgeable and friendly guide. We are very happy with our lovely day trip to the Luberon and are very happy to thoroughly recommend Provans to other travellers.

    It was a wonderful tour, the day was managed great, with insightful info and overview on the area. Each village was different and there was enough time to enjoy each of them. Thanks Nicolas for a wonderful tour!

    Perfect day exploring the villages and lavender fields of the Luberon. Veronica was a delightful and informative guide. She looked after each of us, making sure we got the most out of the tour. The itinerary is as described, although the hospitality of the villages and beauty of the lavender fields can’t be captured by anything but experience. Highly recommend!

    We took the yellow tour with Nicolas and the violet tour with Veronica. Both were amazing, it surpassed all my expectations. The places are breathtaking, Nico and Veronica make a perfect tour. They are kind , profesional, well prepared, they really go beyond so you can enjoy every minute. The fact that is a small tour makes it easy to move in small and crowd towns. We loved the whole experience!!!!! We would recommend it to anyone

    I took the 'Orange' Luberon villages tour. * A great option for those not wishing/able to drive in France since it visits several places that are difficult to access without a car * Very well-organised tour, runs punctually, great communication from both the office staff and day guide * Guide Nico was very polite, patient and helpful, and gave a good recommendation for lunch. He was also an expert and safe driver and, needless to say, very knowledgeable about the area. Bottled water also carried in the van - very handy for when the temperature rises! * Small group was great. I able to have a nice chat and get to know the other travellers in the van. * Tour pace was relaxed compared to most regular tours. I personally like to really linger and explore at a place when travelling, so for me it was a little on the quick side and I did feel quite tired at the end of the day, but I think for the 'average' tourist this would be a comfortable pace. I would have liked to have had more time at the Senanque abbey (we had ~25min there) and Menerbes / Roussillon. * Note that the tour requires minimum 2 people to run. I couldn't make a booking for 1 person on Tripadvisor so I booked directly via their website, and was able to secure a place. Staff (Veronica) were very responsive via email - very happy with the service.

    Everything was perfect. Veronica is a lovely and knowledgeable guide. She gave us enough time at every stop and we even did more stops along the way as expected. So we all (only 7 person) had a great day, we were laughing a lot. Further, the contact in advance was great and I also get picked up from my accommodation.

    We did several tours during our stay in Provence but this was the most informative and best organized trip of all . Veronica has an extensive knowledge of the area , was very attentive to the needs of the group - included a detour so we could see Lavender in bloom- and is passionate about her work. It was a very hot day so she kept us hydrated with cold water . I highly recommend Provans tours who are also happy to provide bespoke trips. She also gave each of us a lavender bag as a memento of the trip

    Roussillon was the most fascinating. Others point on the were also enchanting. Beats driving. Veronica is very congenial and informative as well as a great driver.

    Très satisfaite de mon excursion. Petit groupe. Guide très agréable et qui nous a donné beaucoup d’informations sans que ce soit trop indigeste. Découvertes de plusieurs villages avec pauses de durée idéale. Très bonne expérience. Surtout en mai avec un temps magnifique. Juste ce qu’il fallait pour se ressourcer. Suis venue avec mes parents. Merci Isabelle

    Nicolas was the tour guide. He and the tour was excellent. Nico was very knowledgeable and passionate about his job. We saw 3 or 4 different villages and was given plenty of time at each stop to explore. each village was different and unique from each other. Nico even stopped at a beautiful poppy field for our group. I definitely recommend this tour group. Nico is lovely and Veronica was a pleasure to deal with by email. I was a solo traveler looking for a different tour (the yellow tour but no other people booked that tour for my dates) but when they got people for the Luberon Valley Tour she offered me a spot and I am glad I took it. A very pleasant day out
