If you mean Aix-en-Provence, http://www.aixenprovencetourism.com/en/ is a good site for information. We've taken a couple of tours through the main tourist office which were quite good although this year we'll have a car through autoeurope.com (Europcar).

Hi Karen -
Check out the recommendations in the Rick Steves 'Provence & The French Riviera' tour book. He has a few local guides listed and their websites are all accessible and in English. You can sign up on line or e-mail the contacts listed for more information and schedules. I was trying to schedule a local tour and found the two people I corresponded with extremely helpful and accommodating. I heard back from them immediately and even though our schedules did not mesh they made recommendations for other local guides. Their websites are www.provenceandwine.com and www.discover-provence.net. Good luck!
