Laurence has been a pleasure to work with. She is knowledgeable, professional, and showed flexibility when putting together our travel plans. She responded promptly to our phone calls and emails. Her recommendations were well thought out.
On the ground, we found that things were well planned. The drivers and guides showed up on time, spoke excellent English, and were knowledgeable about their chosen area of expertise. Each one of them was friendly and we developed an excellent rapport with them
All in all, good value for money! And I highly recommend this France travel company.
That is a difficult question because we did several different things and they were all very enjoyable.
This trip was a combination of art history (Chagall, Cezanne, and Van Gogh,) history of the region (Roman influence) with Glanum, Pont du Gard and Amphitheater in Arles, the culture of all the towns and villages we visited; Nice, Aix en Provence, Arles, St. Remy, Gordes, Jaucus, Maubec, Avignon and Monaco. The cooking class was an excellent experience as was the regional cuisine and wine.
In the end, you would have to say that everything we experienced was so enjoyable because of the people we met. Our guides, people at the restaurants, and French people in general; made us feel welcome and safe in their country.
A special mention to our guide Sarah who works in partnership with her husband Laurent. My sister had a terrible fall and hurt herself. Sarah was resourceful, acted with urgency and got her to a clinic, got her seen by a doctor, got her medications, etc. She went above and beyond what could be expected, and we are all very grateful to her.
On this particular trip, I would not change much.
The hotel in Avignon is very understaffed at this time and they had very few guests. They told us we were upgraded to better rooms, however, they were on the side facing the main square, and it was noisy. If there is a better 5-star option in Avignon I would have chosen a different hotel for that reason. It was a minor issue and we still had a good stay.
