Veronica is very friendly, informative and funny, and also an excellent driver! The trip includes four beautiful villages - Vaucluse, Gorde, Rousillon and Menerbes, plus Notre Dame de Senanque Abbey which is famous for its lavender fields in summer (went there in September thus not in bloom, but still it was stunning and tranquil). These four villages are well picked because they show different sides of Luberon, Provence, and also each one is quite small so the time Veronica reserved for each village was quite enough for strolling around and taking some cool pictures.

My husband and I took the private tour. We realized renting a car for 24 hours would have cost the same, and this way we can skip the driving and have a tour guide! We loved our guide Ichrak’s explanation of the local areas around Nice and his knowledge of the traditions and landmarks. We went in early September so unfortunately the gorge was on the drier side and the lavenders had been harvested. However we still had a great time exploring the area and would recommend it! Definitely take Dramamine - my husband who normally doesn’t get carsick was quite nauseous.

Mat our host/driver was excellent!! He was funny and very knowledgeable which made the trip very interesting and fun, especially as the other people on the tour were quiet. He made us feel very welcome and happy & wanted to make our trip very good. I strongly recommend this trip if you want to see beautiful villages and the lake. The lavender fields were out of season when we went but I still think we got amazing value for money & we were picked up and dropped off outside our accommodation which makes it very easy! Thanks so much Mat!

Trip was fantastic and riding the segway was definitely easier than I anticipated, it was so much fun and our wonderful guide Abdul was amazing, so helpful and safety conscious. We saw so much of the city and so many interesting places, would highly recommend to anyone

My driver, Ondrei, was great!! The tour was beautiful and fun!
