Christmas Cheer Tour 2023
Christmas Cheer Tour 2023
The Christmas in Provence tour was absolutely wonderful. After traveling with you on the lavender tour several years ago, I knew the trip would be well planned and include delicious food, but I wasn’t sure it could match those days among the beautiful lavender fields. Once the tour began, I quickly realized that the Christmas in Provence tour was going to be fabulous! The trip included such a diverse variety of historical and cultural activities in settings from large cities to small villages and the pace was perfect. The food and food experiences were also delicious and memorable. I truly feel that I experienced Provencal culture and Christmas traditions in so many ways, large and small. Your deep knowledge of Provence, your relationships with locals, and the amount of thought and planning you put into a tour are obvious. Thank you for providing such an exceptional experience!

October small group tour
Emily has an easy-going style that is friendly and accommodating. She delivered above expectation on all aspects of the tour, from market visits, accommodation, stops of interest, and restaurant choices. It was a positive and enjoyable way to see Provence for the first time.

September 2023 – 10-day private tour
Emily was our guide and driver for 10 days during our private tour of Provence. There were 7 of us, all friends and we have traveled all over the world for the past 50 years. Our 10 days with Emily traveling all over Provence was perhaps the finest travel experience any of us have ever had. She completely embodies all of the qualities needed to take complete strangers and make them feel as if they are part of her family. She was so professional, knowledgeable, kind, caring and flexible as well as being an unbelievable driver over tiny roads and in tight places. She takes so much pride in the product that she delivers to her clients and I cannot imagine anyone not being completely satisfied with her service. We all agreed that Emily made our Provence experience ten times better than it would have been had we not been with her. She is simply the best tour guide any of us have ever experienced anywhere!

Lavender & Heritage Sites Tour 2023
I just can’t say enough about the Lavender & Cultural Tour with Emily. Emily has an in-depth knowledge of Provence, and it shows. From the accommodations to the daily excursions, everything was top-notch and well-planned. The tour was limited to 7 guests; having a small group allowed us to get to know each other and develop friendships. She checked upfront with each of us to obtain any dietary requirements or restrictions, and she made sure that a variety of menu choices was available to accommodate everyone. Emily provided a detailed itinerary for each day, which included both sightseeing and free time. Through Emily’s local contacts, we were able to have unique experiences that other tour guides would not be able to provide. She also timed our tours so that we avoided the big tour bus crowds. If you want a truly memorable experience in Provence, Emily is the one!

May Day Tours & Biking the Luberon
We booked Emily for a day trip to Avignon & the Pont du Gard. She was wonderful. She picked us up & dropped us off at our accommodation near Gordes. She accommodated all our requests to the point that the tour was extended at no cost. We had a lovely day visiting the main sites in Avignon and a lovely walk around the Pont du Gard. Her restaurant recommendations were terrific for both the day we spent with her and then her great recommendations for other restaurants in other towns we were visiting on other days. We loved her so much we were lucky enough to book her another day and went E – biking for the day in the Luberon ( Bonniuex, Menerbes & Oppede). Highly recommend Emily & any tour she puts together for you!
