Perfect day in picturesque Provence

Had an amazing day! Just in 9 hours we managed to see so much I felt overwhelmed with emotions. Lavender fields themselves were picture perfect, a dream coming true, but small cute villages where we went on our way there were a great addition to the experience. Nicholas took such a good care of us! Made sure that we got the most out of the day. I had a time of my life. Thank you so much!

The tour is wonderful. Our guide Nicolas was very knowledgable. The highlight of this tour is defintely the lavender fields. We had a chance to visit a private field and we had entire field to just 4 persons. IT was perfect. We also visited Saint Abbeye which was good, then Gordes (not a huge fan of this city ), then we had a lunch break at Rousillon and had enough time to visit the lovely trail of ocres. We ended our tour at a museum where we had a chance to understand the process of producing essential oils from lavender. Nicolas also suggested us places from where we should buy souvenirs and where it can be expensive. He also suggested some nice restaurants in Rousillon. We loved this tour and would defintely recommend it to future travellers to Avignon and Provence

Fabulous Guided Tour Of Lavender Fields And Villages East Of Avignon

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!

Very impressed by the personal service from Provans tours. They offered to pick me up at a location more convenient for me even though a little outside the city walls. Great informative commentary along the way and plenty of time to visit each place. Nico went out of his way to find remaining lavender fields since more than 80% of the lavender had already been harvested; he also offered to take pictures of each of us with the lavender back drop. Loved that we stopped by a working lavender distillery and got to watch the distillation of lavender. Would highly recommend this tour. Vans was great with individual air conditioning vents that were adjustable above each seat. Very nice to have when temperatures 100 degrees in Provence!

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!
