    Was a very pleasant day. Visited a huge market to start the morning and then visited a lavender distillery which was average. We visited Gordes and another hilltop village which was lovely. Despite being a full day, I felt we could of had more time in the villages and the tour driver knowledge of the area and things in general seemed limited. We managed to see some lovely lavender fields even in late july. I would still recommend this tour to anyone as was a lovely day out.

    It was great trip trough breathtaking view points and most beautiful villages which is possible to find. Anyway my main purpose was to see the lavander fields and dreams come true. Our guide knew excellent history of this area, also she was kind and friendly. For sure I could recommend this tour easy.

    There was great sunshine for our all day tour. We're glad we chose to see the lavender in early July, as the lavender was peaking and before harvest. Our handsome guide, Francoise, was so relaxed and comfortable with anyone's requests. These small group tours are the only way to do this tour. Many thanks,

    We were blessed with Remy as our tour guide. He was knowledgeable, helpful and very communicative and I would like to thank him for giving us an excellent day out! He went out of his way to be helpful, especially as we were doing the lavender tour right at the end of the season. We found lots of lavender fields in the hills as well as visiting the lavender museum an being fortunate to visit a lavender farm/distillery in action. The tour was well planned, allowing stops in Gordes, where we were able to explore the market as well as the village itself and another charming village, the name of which I have forgotten! There were lots of photo opportunities and Remy was kind enough to take some photos of his tourists, by request.

    This was the first time we had used Viator, and we were really pleased. After some initial hesitation about the cost, on my part, I felt that it was very good value for money on reflection. I will certainly be using Viator on all my future city breaks, and am very happy to give this tour in particular, and the tour guide himself, my highest recommendation.

    I absolutely loved my full day Lavender sightseeing tour with Remy. He allowed a decent amount of time at both Gordes and Sault to look around the town, eat lunch and shop at the markets. We had plenty of opportunities to take photos. Make sure you try the Lavender ice cream!

    We were in Provence at the very end of the lavender harvest so we missed the grand visual display but there were still lavender fields for us to stop and explore. We also made a stop at a farm to see the oil harvesting process in progress and had a chance to buy lavender oil direct from the producer which was much cheaper than it was in the Lavender museum which ended the tour. I could have done without the commercial Lavender museum ending. I didn't learn as much about the farming and processing of lavender as I did at the farm and I felt I was mostly there to be encouraged to spend money on overpriced items, yet I suppose that is a part of the economy of the region as well. Anyway, the majority of the tour was a delight and we were so glad we took it. Our guide was pleasant and informative as well.
