Excellent Day Trip

This was an excellent day trip. Our driver and guide Nico made sure we saw a few lavender fields which we told him our main reason for visiting Provence. He also advised us on how to spot the right lavender products and where to get them at the best prices. He took us to three of the classified “most beautiful villages” in France: Gordes, Rousillion, and Menerbes. He gave us introduction to each of these places. He dropped us off the entrance of each town so we were free to wander about and do our shopping for products unique to Provence. I highly recommend this day trip.

Had an amazing day! Just in 9 hours we managed to see so much I felt overwhelmed with emotions. Lavender fields themselves were picture perfect, a dream coming true, but small cute villages where we went on our way there were a great addition to the experience. Nicholas took such a good care of us! Made sure that we got the most out of the day. I had a time of my life. Thank you so much!

The tour is wonderful. Our guide Nicolas was very knowledgable. The highlight of this tour is defintely the lavender fields. We had a chance to visit a private field and we had entire field to just 4 persons. IT was perfect. We also visited Saint Abbeye which was good, then Gordes (not a huge fan of this city ), then we had a lunch break at Rousillon and had enough time to visit the lovely trail of ocres. We ended our tour at a museum where we had a chance to understand the process of producing essential oils from lavender. Nicolas also suggested us places from where we should buy souvenirs and where it can be expensive. He also suggested some nice restaurants in Rousillon. We loved this tour and would defintely recommend it to future travellers to Avignon and Provence

Fabulous Guided Tour Of Lavender Fields And Villages East Of Avignon
DaveK2447
, Jul 2019
We had a great one day tour hosted by Nico (ProVans Tours). Tour showed up in time and we had a comfortable, clean van with air conditioning for the day which was very pleasant. Nico's English was very good and his narration throughout was friendly and informative and he was happy to answer any questions. This tour was their Violet tour which was a route of 175kms, The pacing was great and we had enough time at all the scheduled stops the museum, Senanque, Gordes, Rousillion and Sault. We are a bit early for the lavender to be in full bloom but Nico managed to find us some fields which were close and made excellent photos. Gordes was lovely and the restaurant recommendations were fab, Rousillion was also lovely and the hike around the ochre path was spectacular. All in all this was a great tour which we highly recommend and can't thank Nico and Veronica enough for making this such a great trip. The restaurant recommendations and places to see in Avignon were also very helpful and added to our enjoyment of the town. Merci beaucoup!

Great trip to the lavender fields!

Very impressed by the personal service from Provans tours. They offered to pick me up at a location more convenient for me even though a little outside the city walls. Great informative commentary along the way and plenty of time to visit each place. Nico went out of his way to find remaining lavender fields since more than 80% of the lavender had already been harvested; he also offered to take pictures of each of us with the lavender back drop. Loved that we stopped by a working lavender distillery and got to watch the distillation of lavender. Would highly recommend this tour. Vans was great with individual air conditioning vents that were adjustable above each seat. Very nice to have when temperatures 100 degrees in Provence!

This tour is a must if you are visiting Provence to see the lavender. We took this tour in July at the height of the lavender season. Veronica our guide was terrific. She was knowledgeable and made great efforts to make this tour a memorable one for us. She gave the tour group ample time to enjoy the sights, take pictures and gave great suggestions how to best spend our time at each stop. I highly recommend this tour!

Nicola, our tour guide was excellent. When we though the lavender has been chopped off, he could actually find a very nice spot of lavender field that have not been chopped off. So our dream came true. He prepared drinks and even gave us a photo as souvenir. Very informative and worth the money to go with Nicola.

What a wonderful experience! We were greeted, at our hotel, by Nicolas. He was a wonderful driver and tour guide. Nicolas went out of his way to find lavender that had not yet been harvested. Given that our tour date was rather later in the season, we were very worried. What we saw was just stunningly beautiful! The villages we visited we lovely and we enjoyed the entire tour immensely.

A good tour to catch a bit of everything. Would be better if the two road-side stops to look at more lavender fields can be replaced with more time at Rousillon.

Tour completo e ben organizzato! Nico ottima guida, disponibile, conviviale e paziente! Tra le varie tappe (che ci sono piaciute moltissimo!) la migliore è stata l'abbazia di Sénanque, con passeggiata tra la lavanda e le farfalle. Bellissima esperienza, grazie di tutto! Le tre ragazze italiane

Grazie mille a voi ragazze, è sempre un piacere per me far conoscere la nostra bella Provenza, in particolare nella stagione della lavanda... e grazie a voi ho anche potuto praticare un po' il mio italiano! A una prossima volta, spero! Nico
