Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Choose an 8:30am or 2:30pm tour between mid-June and mid-August — when the lavender fields are in bloom. Then, begin with a pickup at Avignon tourist office or your centrally located Avignon hotel and head out into the Provence countryside with your guide.

First, visit the town of Sault — widely considered to be the French capital of lavender — and enjoy free time to capture the rolling hillsides on camera. Stroll among the rows of purple flowers, and inhale the heady scent for which lavender is famous.

Then, visit a local lavender farm and learn how the essential oils are extracted from the plants. Afterward, explore the surrounding countryside further with your guide before returning to your original starting point — where your 5-hour tour will come to an end.

Our morning tour has been confirmed but then cancelled by the company without any notification! We have found out it is cancelled only after contacting them at 11 pm (during the day and the evening they were not picking up the phone) to actually confirm the pickup location. Awful service, please avoid! There is a plenty of other companies who would treat you better

I have fully experienced Lavender during this tour - Sight, Smell, Hear, Feel and Taste (yes thumbs up for lavender ice cream). Our tour guide, Nicolas, is very great and knowledgeable about the lavender, the village of Sault and Avignon as whole. We get to learn MORE than we expect to. I would highly recommend this tour especially our tour guide Nicolas. Can’t wait to come back.

Not what was advertised

The tour description was as follows: First, visit the town of Sault — widely considered to be the French capital of lavender — and enjoy free time to capture the rolling hillsides on camera. Stroll among the rows of purple flowers, and inhale the heady scent for which lavender is famous. Then, visit a local lavender farm and learn how the essential oils are extracted from the plants. Afterward, explore the surrounding countryside further with your guide before returning to your original starting point — where your 5-hour tour will come to an end. This tour did NOT visit neither Sault NOR a local lavender farm!!! Instead, we visited Roussillon (which I have visited on another tour as planned). This was very disappointing and I want to be refunded since neither of the 2 sites that I wanted to visit was on the program as advertised.

The tour was a bit too rush. As it is named as a Lavender Fields Tour, I would expect more time in the lavender fields, but turn out only 10 mins in one lavender field, then rush to another field for 10 mins. I would prefer they skip the villages, and just stay in the fields to admire the views and smell the lavenders.

A great tour - lovely French scenery. Four of us took the TGV from Lyon to Avignon TGV station where we were picked up by our guide Thierry. We did 2 more pick ups then off to the countryside. Thierry was extremely knowledgeable and although we asked him a question he didn't know the answer to immediately - as soon as he could he got us the answer. The lavender fields were just magnificent but the whole area is spectacular - a well worth trip to get a real good feel of the French countryside. Gold star to Thierry

Due to a disease, apparently, we saw no big fields of lavender in the first half. All were just cut and dried out. Not very interesting and it seemed like endless driving around. The second half was better and we saw lavender. I would have preferred to drive out, see the village of Sault a little longer and the come back the by same road instead of the circular route. That would have meant more time to see lavender fields, which is what we paid for. It could have been better if the itinerary was more flexible to cater for the situation.
