private guided tour of Provence

June 2018 3-day guided tour

“We had a wonderful time exploring Provence with Emily as our guide! With her intimate knowledge of the region, Emily was able to weave into the itinerary places of interest for which we had made special requests, and was able to suggest good alternatives when necessary.

Emily’s deep knowledge of Provence came through best as she led us through several little villages — the little nuggets of information she shared along the way certainly helped us appreciate much better the history of the places we visited. Friendly, open, and very helpful, Emily makes an excellent private tour guide.”

private 3-day tour of Provence

June 2018 3-day private tour

“The beautiful, relaxed culture of Provence makes it an ideal vacation spot for first-time guests and return visitors alike.

As a return visitor, I reached out to Emily to see some of the hidden treasures I was on unable to see during my first visit. She asked me what I enjoyed, what I wanted to see most, and how I’d like to spend my time. From there, she tailored an itinerary specific to me.

She was able to encompass all I requested and made excellent suggestions! I had an incredible time exploring Aix, Marseille, Luberon and the Camargue region. I learned fun facts about the region, tasted native delicacies and when I made a special, yet at times unique request, Emily obliged. She’s flexible and easy to be around. Incredibly accommodating and well versed in the culture of the villages that make up the region. Months later, I remain well pleased. Thanks, Emily!!”

3-day custom Provence Tour

“We had a great trip with Emily and highly recommend her. Before we arrived, she had designed a lovely tour of Provence villages just for us. Attentive to our interests and needs, she crafted an adventure that was a highlight of a trip to France and Italy.

In several days, she introduced us to the history of these hill towns, the beauty of the rural landscape, and the feel of markets, twisty streets, churches, and Van Gogh’s world. Though we saw a good deal, she also made time for little matters, too, browsing a field of poppies, sipping a cup of coffee during an unexpected downpour, and sitting on a wall to sketch and feel the spirit of a place.

Best of all, she was congenial, thoughtful, open, and just good to be with, adding such a human touch to our little stay in Provence. We loved it! (There was NO way we could have rented a car, navigated our way around – especially with parking –  found a hotel and restaurants, and enjoyed ourselves as much without her.) We missed her company when we got on a train in Avignon to continue our journey.”

“Thank you, Emily, for all your help in arranging my trip and transporting me before and after the tour.  Also, the tour was so special.  I enjoyed it all.  You are a great guide to all the special things, places, foods, and experiences in this area of Provence.”

“Our group consisted of six women and one very brave gentleman with of a wide range of ages, backgrounds, personalities, and abilities. We toured the historic Chateauneuf Du Pape. We visited a Winery, Alain Jaume & Fils, sampled several different wines to include one of the Chateauneuf Du Pape wines and had a full course meal (which was unexpected)… So much delicious food. Toured Le Chateau du Bois, Lavender oil is processed, where I bought a bottle of essential oil for the first time in my life. But the highlight of my trip, the chef! Giuseppina, a beautiful soul from the time we stepped into her home, welcoming and bright. Never did I expect such hospitality! And the food was AMAZING.

There are so many things I can say about this trip, the people, the history, and the food… it can go on forever! Emily is the ever patient tour guide, always offered us wine and food, the best friend you could take anywhere and never feel left out. I feel we will book again, next time I would bring my daughter along.”

custom wedding planning in Provence

Wedding in Provence, 2018

“I used Emily through Your Private Provence to help me plan my small wedding/elopement and tours for my family while we were in the area.

The experience went so smoothly in the amazing hands of Emily. She offered several options from vendors for the ceremony, restaurant choices, lodging, and tours throughout the Provence region. She thought of details for the wedding and the tours that would not have even crossed my mind! She was always in touch and responded promptly.

She took into consideration my family’s little quirks and nuances and was really able to develop a unique one of a kind experience for us. She is so sweet, knowledgeable about the area and its history, and really passionate about what she does. I would highly recommend her for touring and especially for helping you make your dream elopement or small destination wedding come true!”
