I have been meaning to post my gratitude to Rick Steves' Europe for recommending David and Association Imagine Tours. I was on the "Paris and the Heart of France" tour in mid-July, and stayed on to take a one day tour of Provence, and specifically the lavender fields. What an amazing time I had! From start to finish, Imagine Tours was wonderful to work with, replying promptly, and offering help and suggestions for every question I might have, as well as providing information I never thought to ask! My personal tour guide (yes, it was just the two of us), Evelyn, was a gem. She picked me up at 9:30 in the morning, and we spent the next 10 hours in the exquisite countryside of Provence. In addition to the lavender fields and a distillery for lavender, we visited a beautiful, ancient abbey, charming little towns, enjoyed delicious food and wine, and so much more. It was a full and splendid day....the perfect end to my time in France. Contact information is in the Rick Steves' guidebook for France, and the staff can also provide it for you via e-mail or phone. I suspect Imagine Tours will be happy to cater to whatever aspect(s) of Provence you most want to experience. Enjoy!
