Very beautiful tour of Provence

Purchased based on description. Actual tour was spending 30 minutes at a petro station, 20 minutes at a lavender field, an hour at a city not mentioned in the description. Very disappointed.

Dear Ana, we are sorry for this disappointment. Could you give us more details that we identify the tour you did, the day and your name or number reservation, that we do a search with our guide and understand what happened. thank you in advance. Best regards TEAM A LA FRANCAISE

Provence Lavender small group half day tour
rimbaulttony
, Aug 2019
Overall the trip was very good. The trip was well led and the areas visited beautiful. Sadly it was one of the few days in France during our stay where the weather was really bad. So towns like Rousillon and Gourdes that are beautiful were wet and miserable and there was a lot of mist around.

The rain couldn't ruin the day!
Aminah_B

The guide was very friendly and on the way to the fields he spoke about the history of Avignon. When we got to the valley he spoke about the start of the farming community that lives there. We had more than enough time to wander around the lavender factory and then we went to the fields. Not once were we rushed and the tour guide even offered to help take our photos. It was raining on and off so we finished the fields quickly voluntarily and headed to the town of Sault. He gave us the option to stay in the town longer or to go to another field after the town, which was super nice. Thankfully it wasn't raining when we went to another field that he found so we were all able to get our pictures! Late July maybe wasn't the best time to go as much of the lavender was harvested but the guide made sure we still got to see great fields.

Not as Expected

We travelled from Switzerland specifically to go on a lavender tour. We selected Viatour because we have had many positive experiences in the past. However, we found ourselves on what appeared to be a non-Viator tour. We were waiting at the designated meeting place and the tour guide did not appear until after we had called the office. The tour guide (Jerome) then asked us to describe the itinerary of our trip. We were quite surprised about this. He did not know that we were supposed to visit Senaque Abby during the tour. We set off 15 minutes late and the timing throughout the trip was neither precise nor clear. We visited a traditional lavender distillery which was very enjoyable, but not part of the original itinerary. We did not spend any time visiting any of the villages mentioned in the tour description and we were allotted 2 minutes to take a photo of Senaque Abby. We did have the opportunity to visit three lavender fields in close proximity which was very enjoyable. Overall, the tour felt very rushed and some of the promised activities were omitted. We would have appreciated being told the tour was not run by Viator.

Beautiful lavenders, less time in villages
Rebecca T
, Jul 2019
Enjoyed the three stops for lavender fields on the morning excursion. Jérôme was friendly and took our photos. Unfortunately, the Senanque Abbey was closed, so we couldn't enter. Wished the tour could be an hour longer, so we could have time to visit another village (besides Roussillon). Pleasant tour overall!

Great trip to see the essentials

Jean was really helpful throughout the whole tour. The tour shoes you the essentials of the area. Jean had a great knowledge of the sights and was extremely helpful throughout the entire experience. The Abbey was not in full bloom but it was still great to see. Overall a fantastic opportunity to see the fields and get all the insight knowledge.

Really Great Tour

This was a wonderful tour. One of the fields was beautifully in bloom, However the lavender was not in bloom at the abbey. I think the tour guide should give the option of not going to the abbey, if not in bloom. The only reason to go to the abbey is for the Lavender view. An option of staying longer in the hilltown of Rousillion would have made the tour perfect. Rousillion was magical and we did not have nearly enough time there. I am so glad I booked this tour and would recommend.

Great views

I wish I had done the full day tour. Everything feels rushed to make it back to Avignon within 5 hours. I think if the tour said 6 hours and we were given additional 15-20 minutes per town/village it would have been perfect. I would pay a little extra for a little extra time in each town. But other than that, this tour delivered everything it promised. If I had the time I would do the full day tour, well worth the extra time and money. But if you're in a rush and just need to see some places, then this is perfect for you.

Lavender Fields
ANGELA_L

It was a terrible tour and a complete waste of time. In fact, it wasn’t a tour. The guide was more like a driver. He dropped us here and there and said he would be back in 45 min. He barely spoke English. He said the microphone in the van was broken. I would NOT recommend this tour to anyone and, in fact, I am a user of Viator a not and I don’t think I will use them anymore (after the tour we have scheduled for tomorrow) VERY disappointing!

Kimberly_C
, Aug 2018
The description of this tour has changed since I booked and paid for our family of four. It use to say the morning tour was 4 hours and afternoon tour was five hours because it also included a stop at the Lavender Museum which we really wanted to see. That didn't happen. Now I go back and see that the verbiage has been changed and both morning and afternoon are five hours. Our tour did not last five hours. Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable and dropped us at the parking garage at the conclusion. I don't feel this is the guide's fault. Viator had one description of the tour and the tour guide had other instructions from his local company. First time not entirely happy with Viator.

Beautiful trip to the lavender fields

The trip includes a ride through the beautiful countryside en route to the lavender fields. Our guide gave basic information, and not much more. Would have liked to have a bit more of the history of the area,

Take me back to the Lavender fields

I can’t say enough great things about this wonderful tour. It was gorgeous, charming and fragrant, and easily the best 5 hours we’d spent. From start to finish the tour was conducted in an organized and timely manner. Our tour guide, whose very French name I do not remember how to spell, was informative and kept the mood light. The most important part was that the company was able to provide a car seat for my 20 month year old son 😊 Please if you are in Provence make this tour be part of your itinerary💜💜💜💜

Lackluster Lavender Tour
John C
, Jul 2018
Joanna was a knowledgeable guide but she demonstrated a lack of solid tour guide experience. During very hot days she should have had some cold water available. Also, she should have made an effort to cool down the very hot van before we entered. She was imprecise in the time allotted for the field visits so some guests wandered far afield while others stood by the van sweating and waiting. There was no time allowed for Hordes.

Great venue, knowledgable guide, poor management
Marsha_V
, Jun 2018
The villages were beautiful. The lavender was not quite at its peak, but we knew that. Our guide talked about Provence, lavender, the villages etc the entire 1 hour drive to our first stop. The PROBLEM was the 3 people in the third row heard NONE of the guides comments. I found out later, the company had to rent a van to honor all their bookings. That was creative and accommodating, BUT the failure to provide the guide with a portable microphone was bad for half the guests and really unfair to the guide. She caught the anger of the people she was working hard to please and I don't think she was given any tips!!!

Fun, but rushed and not understood
Anna_S
, Jun 2018
Our trip was very fun, and we saw beautiful lavender fields and multiple village towns. Our host was very accommodating, but extremely difficult to understand. French and English were not her first languages, so multiple people in our can were having trouble hearing and understanding her. Out of the van, though, the beauty of the tour was very worth it! The villages were gorgeous, and the lavender in bloom! At the Abbaye de Sénanque, the lavender was not in full bloom yet, since it was in a valley. All in all, the trip was fun (apart from not understanding 3/4 of what our guide was telling us.)

We were just one week too early before the lavender fully blossoms. But it doesn't mean we didn't enjoy ourselves. Our tour guide has a strong passion of her work is enthusiastic.
