“My wife and I would have to rate Emily as one of the most cordial and flexible tour guides we have ever toured with. Emily made sure that our small group (3 couples) had not only toured the top sites on our itinerary but that we also had plenty of time to enjoy spontaneous moments which were many and varied…” –John Evans

  • May 2023 – Poppy Madness Small Group Tour

    "I can’t say enough about our fabulous friend’s trip with Emily for 8 nights in Provence.

The unique experiences Emily created for us were amazing from garden tours, cooking class, painting workshop, face cream making, galleries, private chef and walking tours. Her driving was so good from pick up at Avignon TGV to d..."

  • Wine Tour, September 2021

    ""What a beautiful day with Emily and Your Private Provence wine tour. Having been to the region before, two friends and I were interested in a deeper dive into what made this region so well suited for wine. She really listened to our interests and designed a really fun, insightful and rich day. We honestly expected a driver to just drop us off at several wineries and got so much more. Loved the cultural and geological history, the insights of a local to life in Provence, and a diverse samplin..."
