rovence Tour Guests Stamp of Approval!“Our guides David and Philippe are so wonderful, funny, smart and nice! I enjoyed them so much, as did Jen. The cooking class with Yvan was so great! The tour really exceeded my expectations. Wonderful food and zine and plenty of it. I loved that you took us to so many villages. We saw a lot of Provence, and the guides are so full of great knowledge about the area and its history. I will definitely recommend this tour to friends! I’m bummed that we didn’t get to meet Christy as she sounds like a wonderful person. Will be back for another tour!  Thanks for such great memories of beautiful Provence!”  —Barbara Farrell and adult daughter Jen Ewers, Seattle, Washington (Provence Tour) – Provence Tour Guests Stamp of Approval!

“Yes, we would recommend this to anyone who loves walking! Our favorite place was Cassis — so beautiful, and Les Baux was fabulous too, as were all of the villages we visited.The picnic was awesome — we got such a sense of the French good life. Of course our cooking class with Yvan was such fun. This was a great trip!  Our guides were  pure magic! They made this trip even better than we could have imagined. They were funny and charming.  All of the historical context they provided throughout the trip was impressive. We’re so sorry we missed you on this tour Christy, but you were right, David and Philippe took exceptionally good care of us. We hope to see you in Bordeaux soon!” —Mike & Pam Curtis, Dallas, Texas (Have traveled on 2 OTBP tours – Provence Tour and previously on our Loire Valley Tour) – Provence Tour Guests Stamp of Approval!

“Definitely! I will recommend this trip. There was so much to like about this trip starting with the marvelous meals and as much wine as we needed! The fabulous tour guides (loved the small tour given by Philippe at the Van Gogh hospital), The hilltop towns, the picnic, St. Remy town visit and market, were the best (and so much was very good!). Wonderful cooking class too. I think I’ve said it all but just to add a bit more was the way the group was so friendly & supportive (I was traveling as a single woman). We had lots of laughs and I hope to keep in touch with my fellow travelers.Also great to meet Christy! THANK YOU! xoxo” —Kate Norrie, Melbourne, Australia (provence Tour) – Provence Tour Guests Stamp of Approval!

“Yes, we are definitely going to tell our friends and recommend your Provence tour.  You are targeting a niche market —not everyone would want a walking and foodie trip, but for those who would find this attractive, it’s very enjoyable and very well organized, at a reasonable price.  Our guides love of Provence and its history were evident in their enthusiasm with everything they shared. We particularly appreciated Philippe taking the time to show us Glanum! Food, wine, places visited were all top notch. Logistics were well executed without ever feeling rushed. Thank you!” —Frank & Chris Silvestri, Farmington, CT – Provence Tour Guests Stamp of Approval!
