A Recent Review of this tour

We were delighted with our guide, Thibault. He provided excellent context for what we would see and covered many aspects of the city of Aix-en-Provence, incorporating our requested interests of art, architecture, and history. The timing of the tour was perfect, and he provided a few little "extra" surprises, such as tucking in to the garden of his in-laws' home. I recommend him wholeheartedly.
