Great trip despite not being able to see the lavender fields. The guide was very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions. It was smooth drive if a little cramped in the van. We were given enough time in each village to wander around and have some food. Great day out overall.

We had a very nice day trip to lavender fields and spent good time in Sault and Rousillion. Our guide, Alex was very knowledgeable and fun. He offered good jokes and was very polite and friendly. We apreciate the itinerary and we were amazed to discover the beauty of the Great Canion, "La Castelleras". It was a lovely tour and a great experience. Congrats and many thanks, Alex!

Great tour and a fantastic job by Alex of tailoring the itinerary around the rain and the fact that most of the fields had been harvested a couple of weeks early this year (due to drought). We had to drive up high (between 700-1,000 meters) in the mountains to the few remaining unharvested fields. I gave 3 stars for the transportation because we ended up in a rather cramped van due to the fact that we were a small group (8 guests), which made the long drive to our first stop (approx two hours) a bit uncomfortable.
