Our 17 days' trip through the Provence, France was very intense. From the outset, one of the ladies in our group, Christine, had provided the broad framework with considerable details on what we wanted to see. This was then put together into a coherent itinerary by our travel agency. On hindsight, we should have made the trip less intense as many of us were pretty exhausted towards the end of the trip. Nonetheless, we enjoyed the diversity of the sights, from alpine adventure to beautiful lavender , sunflower and poppy fields to stunning gorges and gourmet dining. The hotels we chose generally met with our expectations.
Our guide and driver throughout the trip was extremely hard-working and responsible. She went out of her way to meet the various needs and demands of each of the 6 travelling ladies. In particular, she chose routes that would take us to the lavender, sunflower and poppy fields. Our group loved taking photos,shopping for local specialties and eating. Our guide provided all the necessary support to make this possible. I would also like to give special thanks to our guide for taking such good care of everyone in the group, from managing the luggage to helping some of us who had difficulty climbing up steep slopes and roads. Our guide had made our trip memorable.
There is however one small point we would like to raise. The trip would have been perfect if the itinerary had been planned in close consultation with our guide, who is on the ground to bring us around. This guide is the "people carrier" whilst the travel company is the planner. But there needs to be closer consultations between the two sides.
See above .
Yes, we would make it a bit less strenuous and hectic, with more time spent to relax in the lovely hotels
