    We came from Finland for theatre festival in Avignon and we were 14 people. We had only one free day so we wanted to know this city better and to see the famous Aix en Provence. We met with our guide Jean in the hotel lobby. He enchanted us with his extraordinary knowledge of history and architecture. Before we got here, we all knew or heard little things. But without Jean, we wouldn’t have learned so much detail. The Palais des Papes is already an impressive building but especially its history was interesting. Aix was very beautiful. We had lunch in a very nice typical restaurant that Jean recommended to us and we had time to drink something and buy local products. There is a beautiful cathedral in the middle of Aix and there are many nice shops in small streets.
    We booked this tour on internet and champagne was included in our tour. On our way back we all enjoyed the delicious champagne.
    Thank you for your great service.

    We did Avignon and Aix tour in September 2019 (Friday 6th September). We were a group of 16 people. Caroline was waiting for us at the port of Marseille with a signboard with the name of our group on it. She was superb! She was a very knowledgeable guide.

    When we saw the Popes Palace, we all said “WOW, what a beauty!” A massive and impressive palace located at a beautiful square. The building offers perfect insight into French Architectural history and It is surrounded by a high city wall with 7 gates. It was a great experience to visit this palace. Overall, Avignon is a city with a great dynamics in itself. There are very pleasant and elite shops, restaurants, cafes.
    Aix was very beautiful. Definitely a very peaceful and well preserved city. Many shops have wonderful lavender products, natural soaps, delicious cheeses and wine. There was a large main street that surrounded by many cafes. A huge fountain at the beginning of this main street. You can see that many people sitting in cafes and they’re chatting, eating or drinking. The church of Aix is also worth to see.
    We all had a great time. Thank you so much. Highly recommend.
