    My partner and I had a brilliant 2-person private tour through the Luberon region this July (2017), setting off from Avignon. The best aspects of the tour can be summarised thus: -A friendly, knowledgeable, humorous and interesting guide who tackled questions on history and everyday life in the region -Not having to drive, especially through the narrow streets of the hill-top towns -Having the opportunity to select exactly what we wanted to do and for how long, and to be able to divert from the planned route whenever we wished -Avoiding the worst of the tourist crush by setting out early It's not the lowest cost way of seeing the region of course, but totally worth it.

Excellent guide. Really enjoyed her tour. Learned alot about the area as well as the lavender growing, industry and history in the Luberon region. Well worth the time and money spent doing this tour, would definitely recommend to anyone interested not only in lavender but also the towns and lifestyle living in this area... beautiful country!
