PROVENCE TOUR ITINERARY – Small Group Tour

mapsandstampmontage2Yes we will definitely recommend France Off the Beaten Path Tours! The reason why we really liked this tour was because it was a small group, and most of all liked the fact that we weren’t hopping around from hotel to hotel – staying in one hotel for the entire tour was definitely a perk we appreciated!! Initially we thought we would be able to maneuver around the region on our own but are so glad we didn’t attempt it. Off the Beaten Path took us to wonderful areas and treated us to some fabulous meals!! We loved every day!! Our favorites were the walks-getting to walk through different scenery on each, cooking class and market day. Thank you!” — Rob and Jane Disch, Watchung, New Jersey
