Provence Tour Guest Testimonials…

  “Fabulous Provence!” from Kerry & Warren Seeto  

“Our week in Provence, with Off The Beaten Path, was absolutely amazing. The itinerary was exceptional, with so many highlights…amongst them a private cooking class with one of France’s most recognised chefs. We had a fun-filled week in the company of like-minded travellers, exploring what Provence had to offer….stunning scenery, beautiful walking trails, gorgeous historic villages, Michelin starred restaurants, wineries and so much more. …We loved everything about our tour of Provence with Off the Beaten Path ……amazing itinerary, tremendous organisation, fabulous people and fun! Congratulations, and thanks to Christy!” Click here to read Kerry & Warren’s complete independent review on our Trustpilot page… (opens in a new window)  

  “A Week in Provence: Our Delightful Adventure” from Bob & Susan Horn  

“When my wife and I decided that it was time for us to visit the south of France, we knew that, if we tried to do it on our own, we would miss out on too many experiences that we might enjoy if we only had some guidance. But we didn’t like the idea of the standard sort of tours that we’d read about, with large groups and rigid itineraries and name tags – feeling like we’re being herded around with a bunch of strangers. We wanted something different, but we didn’t know if it existed. It does! After spending a great deal of time researching tours and looking at travel options for the south of France, we began seeing comments, here and there, about someone named Christy Destremau and the tour company that she built and owns, Off the Beaten Path Tours. We were immediately drawn to the OTBP offering, both for the interesting tour locations visited and the daily outings that combine walking, great food and education about the local customs. Once we initially discovered Christy and her company, we did more digging and found that Christy doesn’t just have fans, she has devotees! That doesn’t come by accident – it only comes when it has been earned, and if you choose an Off the Beaten Path tour, I’m confident that you’ll agree that she has earned this sort of following … Thank you to Christy and the entire Off the Beaten Path crew for giving us such wonderful memories.” Click here to read Bob & Susan’s complete independent review on our Trustpilot page… (opens in a new window)  


Provence Tour Guest Testimonials…

  “Well thought out and well run tour!” from Barbara Frish  

“I just returned from last week’s Provence tour. I’ll preface this by saying that this is only the 2nd tour I have ever taken. I travel a lot but usually on my own. I wasn’t sure I would like someone telling me where to eat and what to see and when to do things. I didn’t want it to be touristy. I didn’t have to worry about any of that! At least for a tour by France OTBP! This tour was amazing! The days are well planned. The group is small. The guides excellent … I wouldn’t hesitate to take or recommend any of her tours!” – Barbara and sister Wendy have traveled on 2 OTBP Tours, They joined us along with 4 friends on our May 30-June 4, 2017 Loire Valley Tour  

  “Great Small Tours of France” from Marti Hyland  

“I have been on two OTBP tours – the Loire Valley and Provence. Both trips were great. The hotel for each trip was really lovely and it was great to have be able to stay at one location the whole week – no packing and unpacking to change hotels. The daily excursions were interesting and included a good mix of history, culture, food, wine, and downtime. One of things I enjoyed most with both tours is that every detail is taken care of for you, and all you have to do is show up and enjoy yourself. On both trips, our guides were incredibly knowledgeable, gracious, and entertaining. …I would highly recommend OTBP tours.”  – Marti and Thor are joining us on our October 2-7, 2017 Bordeaux Tour – This will be their 3rd tour with us!

Loire Valley Tour Guest Testimonials…

France Tour Schedule - France Off the Beaten Path™ Tours  “Loire Valley food, wine and castles” from Sandie Mapp  

“I contacted Christy Destremau after searching many tours of Loire Valley online. Christy’s reviews are what caught my eye. All her clients were raving about their travels with Christy. So, after checking thoroughly and viewing all the photos and reading more reviews……… I booked it ! Christy had a wonderful itinerary planned for me and my 3 girlfriends . The occasion was my big birthday (60) destination trip with my friends. The foods, the wines, the history, the hotel, the KNOWLEDGE of all things France that Christy had, truly exceeded our expectations.”  France Tour Schedule - France Off the Beaten Path™ Tours

France Tour Schedule - France Off the Beaten Path™ Tours  “Wonderful Loire and Provence Tours” from Tim and Nina Ku  

“We joined France Off the Beaten Path on the Loire and Provence tours. Both tours were very well run. The small group size makes a big difference in comparison to larger tours. When traveling with these small groups, you feel like you are traveling with friends, not a tour, and the guides (we had Christy, Philippe, and David) were excellent – knowledgeable, attentive, friendly, and charming. …If you are looking for a small group tour in France, we highly recommend Off the Beaten Path. We would do another tour with this group in a heartbeat!” – Tim and Nina also traveled on our September 2016 Bordeaux Tour  France Tour Schedule - France Off the Beaten Path™ Tours

“OTBP is a top notch small group tour company. Every aspect of these tours – from the hotels, experiences, food, and guides – just couldn’t be better. We’ve done the Loire Valley and Provence trips, and we’re hoping to get to Bordeaux soon! For us, staying in one hotel and enjoying the local area is a highlight. Hotel hopping is not fun, and with Christy you don’t have to! Go on one of these tours!” … Pam and Mike have been on 2 OTBP Tours to Loire Valley and Provence  France Tour Schedule - France Off the Beaten Path™ Tours
