Here you’ll find a selection of photos taken during our Provence Tour seasons. Our Provence Tours keep our entire team busy with travel guests joining our personalized, small group Provence Tours from around the globe; including Australia, USA, Canada, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Mexico, Hong Kong, and Singapore to name a few.

Our 6-Day Provence Tours feature personalized excursions and privately hosted lunches and dinners. From  a privately hosted welcome dinner at friend Catherine’s local Provence farmhouse to a private wine tasting experience in friend, Master Sommelier, Guy’s 13th century wine cellar followed by lunch at his home overlooking the Rhone river valley, and a pastis and Mediterranean foodie tasting with our one-and-only Roger, delight in exceptional experiences throughout. We combine these unique “only available to our tour guests” experiences with three uniquely designed walks to discover Provence’s picturesque landscapes (designed for interested guests), as well as privately guided tours of famous Provence markets, perched villages of the Luberon, Roman ruins of Arles, and a 45 minute Mediterranean cruise to view the calanques (Roman fjords) of the wine producing village of Cassis. Our Provence Tours feature daily options for both WALKERS and NON-WALKERS alike.

Not your typical southern France tour, our Provence Tours take travelers beyond tourist hotspots to discover authentic Provence. Below we’ve included a selection of our tour photos, now updated with 2023 images from our Best Adventures in Provence™ Tours. Travelers are welcomed to the homes, professional kitchens, workshops, and wineries of local friends. Each tour is a personalized experience offering travelers an unparalleled and memorable way to discover the heart and soul of Provence, France.

A WORD FROM Our Guests:

Exceeded Our Expectations!

“This trip to the Loire Valley exceeded our expectations! Christy planned unique and interesting excursions and activities that highlighted the beauty of the area and provided in-depth background knowledge about the various chateaux we visited. The cooking classes with renowned chefs, held in their restaurants and homes, were never-to-be forgotten experiences, and the visit to the winery was a highlight. The hotel was delightful and charming, and staying in one location for the entire time was a treat. Every meal or cocktail hour was planned to highlight the delicious specialties of the region. Christy is extremely knowledgeable about the various places we visited and imparted that knowledge in an interesting and entertaining manner. She and Remi took great care to ensure that we were always comfortable and well-looked after. We could not have asked for a better trip!” — Ron Rose & Sharon Matsumoto (Have done Provence tour and Loire Valley tour)

This was my third trip in the same number of years

“This was my third trip in the same number of years with Christy and Off the Beaten Path. While on her trips you can tell how much effort there is on the off season to make every single week perfect. From the pick up at the train station to the teary goodbye at the airport, everything is perfectly planned and executed. The hotel in St. Remy is magical, and the tour guides Philippe and David are exceptional. If you are considering a trip with OTBP, go for it and come home with new friends, a love of Provence and a longing to return as soon as you can!” — Beth Bower (Has done Provence tour twice and Loire Valley tour)

The Best Tour Company!

“I have done two tours – Provence and Loire Valley – and I am already looking forward to booking another. The tours are all perfectly curated and Christy is a wealth of knowledge. She is so kind and takes all of your needs and wants into consideration. I cannot recommend Off the Beaten Path enough!” — Madison Carl (Has done Provence and Loire Valley tours)

“We did the Provence tour. 8/2019. I had taken the tour 2017 & this time my husband came with me. It was just as fabulous this time as it was in 2017. Restaurants, picnic, sights, wine, all of it just delightful, but the frosting on the cake is a the knowledge, insight, humor, & attention to detail from David & Philippe. To us, they make a great trip soooo much fun. (also, 3 of our neighbors joined us this tour). Don’t hesitate, take this tour & enjoy!!!!!” — Jim & Carol Dean (Carol has done Provence tour twice)

Returning to Provence with France Off the Beaten Path

“I wanted to return to Provence as soon as it was open. I had toured with Christy in Loire Valley in 2019 and knew I wanted to travel with her again. For the second time, everything was well organized, personal and definitely off the beaten path. Christy and Phillippe have a wealth of knowledge and are eager to share. The hotel was perfectly located in St Remy, the tours to the lavender and sunflower fields are my favorite memory. The lunches and dinners were like visiting friends. The boat tour in Cassis was another highlight. Even though I had visited Provence, this trip with France Off the Beaten Path brought a new appreciation for the area.” — Susan Gage (Has done Loire Valley tour, Provence tour, Champagne tour)

“We had an excellent tour with Christie and her crew in the Loire valley. We did things that only a true insider would have access to-dinner at a Michelin chefs house, helping/learning to cook at a highly rated restaurant in their kitchen. This was in addition to seeing the sights and touring the castles. A truly unique experience that is off the beaten path. We will use her again when going back to France.” — Karen Berner (Has done Loire Valley tour)
