Any tips on good tours or cooking schools while visiting 5 days in Aix. Any suggestions welcome! Thanks in advance. Karen
khayes, which Aix, there are lots of them? It is better always to use the correct full place name.
- Aix-en-Provence, in the département of Bouches-du-Rhône, the best-known Aix
- Aix, Corrèze, in the Corrèze département
- Aix, Nord, in the Nord département
- Aix-en-Diois, in the Drôme département
- Aix-en-Ergny, in the Pas-de-Calais département
- Aix-en-Issart, in the Pas-de-Calais département
- Aix-en-Othe, in the Aube département
- Aix-la-Fayette, in the Puy-de-Dôme département
- Aix-les-Bains, in the Savoie département
- Aix-Noulette, in the Pas-de-Calais département
- Aixe-sur-Vienne, in the Haute-Vienne département
- Île-d'Aix, island and commune of the Charente-Maritime département
And of course
- Aix-la-Chapelle, or Aachen, Germany
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!
Thank you all! And, Chris, thanks for the clarification.......
One that Chris missed is Aix- en- Pains
