DO NOT USE - PLAIN ROBBERY!!
Rosa_F
, Nov 2021
We booked this tour the night before it was suppose to happen. We were picked up and another couple already was in the van. No problem. We got in the van and the driver told us there were 10 others to pickup. At the next stop we were told that some of the others were SICK (during COVID pandemic) and they would not be joining, however the 8 others that were also in the SAME GROUP were joining even though they had CLOSE contact with the sick. We opted to get out of the vehicle and WALK back to our hotel, never taking the tour. We called the provider and they said they would refund. THEY DID NOT. VIATOR - no help! Never again. We disputed and the supplier said that we did not want to get in the vehicle with others. LIE - 1. because we took several other tours with others through Viator . We did NOT want to travel with infected people since we needed to get tested to return home. 2. There were already travelers in the vehicle when we got in. FURHTER - they said they checked pass sanitaire... which was also a LIE - they DID NOT check ours or anyone elses. During a pandemic and VIATOR is NO HELP with the rip- off suppliers, Total money grab. This after we took 4 tours with VIATOR on only this trip. We will NEVER use VIATOR Again if they do not STAND UP FOR THEIR CUSTOMERS!!!

First of all hello your comment is totally false and not true .... all our customers have their sanitary pass and negative pcr test. we must tell the truth we have all the customer testimonials that we will also publish the driver was present at your address 34 rue lamartine at 8:30 am, and you got in the van, you arrive at the 2nd pickup do not want to continue because you want to stay alone in the van knowing that it is a shared ride and not private. concerning the covid all our customers have the sanitary pass and a negative pcr test. be a little correct and with principles

Very nice trip with Rodolpho as driver/guide. Pickup at the agreed time, no delays. We were only six persons for the trip, which was nice. We skipped the lavender fields (October being out of season, obviously) and spent more time in the gorge and villages and also visiting the saint Roselle chapel.

Don’t miss this tour with Rodolphe!

Every stop on the tour was memorable—from the lavender distillery to Castellane to the Gorges of Verdon to Lake St. Croix to Moustiers Ste. Marie. Gorgeous scenery and quaint villages. Just enough background information without being overwhelmingly so, allowing us to to explore on our own and to soak in each experience. For me, the most memorable of these may have been our final and unexpected stop: at Chapelle Ste. Roseline, where my patron saint now rests… Rodolphe, our guide, obviously cares about and thoughtfully accommodates the interests of his tour group members.

They didnt take us to the lavender fields only. Before booking only i took a confirmation from the viator team that the fields are in full bloom. But the guide told there wont be any lavender fields now. It was a highly disappointing trip.

Our guide was wonderful, he arrived at our hotel on time and greeted us in friendly manner. He’s driving is good we felt safe during the trip. Did not see the lavender field as it was end of the flowering season.we spend more time at the lake la croix . I just wish we were given more time to explore Mustier- Ste-Marie

Too short of stops, not worth the long ride in a crowded van.
Timothy_B

The tour guide was simply a driver. A nice driver, but simply a driver. We spent 7 1/2-8 hours in the van so packed that the couple sharing the front passenger seat didn’t even fit in the seat. Very unusual to be acceptable considering COVID IS A REAL ISSUE. The three hours we spent out of the van included a stop at a chocolate factory where I’m sure we were expected to purchase something, a 30 min stop in a small town which gave us time to use the bathroom and walk down one street, a stop for lunch which forced us to wander the town looking for an open restaurant with no guidance from the driver, a short 20 minutes after lunch to ‘see’ the town, a quick 10 minute stop in lavender fields which had obviously been cut for crop prior to us arriving, and finally a 10 minute stop at a lake with barely enough time to use the bathroom. The itinerary clearly stated we were to have an hour in the first small town (received 30 minutes), a two hour stop in the town for lunch (received 80 minutes), one hour at the lavender fields (we received ten minutes) and one hour at the lake (we received 10 minutes). But we did have more than 7 hours in the crowded van. . NOT worth the time or the money. And a helpful hint for the driver: when you’re driving on the side of cliffs, please don’t turn your head fully to the side to talk to your passenger. Your eyes should be on the road at all times. That scared us half to death.

hello, thank you for any comments that could improve the services to our customers! but in your case we have trouble finding you in our planning! Can you please give us more details on our email which you must certainly have, your name and your reservation number we will be useful to identify as well as possible which driver makes stops too short or on the chocolate factory without asking for the customer opinion because this stop is optional and therefore just on request! As for the number of people in the van, these are the standards in force for shared tours! (group of 8 customers maximum) with masks for everyone and disinfectant gel that we offer free of charge to all our customers who wish !! Having already had many surprises with low cost and therefore low service competitors? Thank you again for contacting us directly on our email address, Looking forward to, very cordially

Excellent day trip...lavender fields, the lake, villages, and a wonderful scenic drive!
Tyler_S

Ben was our guide. He was excellent. He spoke English, French, and Italian. Prepare to be in the van for awhile...the drive is very scenic. I recommend bringing some snacks/water for the journey as it can be ~1 hour between stops. Bring bathing suit and a towel if you fancy a swim in the stunning lake that you will visit. I went in late July and the lavender was still in bloom. It was being harvested in some spots, however. Plan accordingly for this. The villages are quaint and beautiful with plenty of shops to stop in. Plan for an entire day out.

The tour exceeds my expectation. The tourguide (Lauren) is really nice and gave insightful information. Free time at Castellane and Moustiers Sainte-Marie gave me freedom to do anything I like :) Thank you for the memorable summer holiday!

Not what we expected

Nice tour, but the guides were more like taxi drivers instead of tour guides. Also we were too late in the season for the Lavender fields, but this was not mentioned when we booked the tour and this was one of the main reasons we chose this tour... place we saw were nice, but just no back ground information
icon Response from Host , Aug 2020
Hello thank you for any comments that may bring an improvement. we are really sorry that our drivers do not correspond to your expectations. but this same guide named Ruslan has a lot of good comments from our customers in genial !!! we are still very sorry that this is not enough for you. We will specify in the description of the tour that the flowers are cut at the end of JULY, put in AUGUST according to the seasons and the years. Coedially
