My wife and I opted for a couple of one day excursions with Alain in Provence. We had communicated via email prior to leaving for France and had made preliminary plans to meet in Provence. He had provided us with two one day flexible itineraries and included price quotes. Alain picked us up at the Le Mas des Carassins Hotel... More

Three of us took Alain's tour of Saint Remy, Les Baux and the Camargue and we had a lovely day! The Saint Paul de Mausole monastery where Van Gogh lived when it was an asylum was beautiful and moving. Before Alain took us to Les Baux for lunch and a fascinating self-guided tour of the town and castle, he learned... More

Alain was a wonderful find, four of us, two from the US and two from the UK spent an amazing week visiting various locations all over Provence. We travelled from London by Eurostar directly to Avignon and Alain picked us up at the Station. We stayed at Les Seigneurolles B&B at Alain's recommendation and he picked us up and dropped... More

Alain Lesomptier met us at our hotel near the Marseilles Airport to take us to Avignon. He was on time and his vehicle was comfortable and clean. Alain was very friendly and knowledgeable about a wide variety of subjects about the area -- wine, agriculture, Roman sites and history, among other topics. We had a wonderful trip and wish it...

Alain was a perfect guide for two aging (80/75) New Yorkers - stressed out trying to see Provence in a rented car with a faulty GPS. We felt very comfortable with his low-key, amiable approach and appreciated his taking us to some off-the-beaten path places. Highly recommended.

We found Alain quite by chance and we are so glad we got to meet him. He was our friendly and easy-going guide for the day as we were shown the best of Cassis (the beautiful and rugged calanques), the vineyards in Bandol and the relaxed seaside town of Sanary which wasn't even part of our original itinerary but turned...

Alain met us at Marseille airport to take us to Vaison le Romaine and was absolutely charming, honest and extremely knowledgeable about the area. I would highly recommend him and his company for tours or other services

My wife, two teenage daughters and I took the Best of Provence tour with Alain Lesomptier during our vacation in Europe. It was one of the best experiences we've had. Not just because of the beautiful areas we saw but also because of Alain.

It was a great tour in Provence with Alain being our guide. He picked us up at Marseille Provence Airport at 4pm and drove us directly to our lodging place. Although I have been to Marseille previously, there were some very interesting places that Alain brought us to which is very traditional and interesting. He also told us about some... More

While staying in Aix en Provence, I wanted to show a friend Cassis and Bandol. Rather than rent a car, I discovered Ventoux Decouvertes and decided to give it a try. I would definitely do that again. Alain picked us up at our hotel and provided a really wonderful day for us. Besides the things I wanted to do, he... More
