What People Say About Best of Aix
People have great things to say about Wine in Provence and the Best of Aix wine package.
We met our 2 hosts from Wine in Provence Tours, and had a great tour through through the alleyways of Aix en Provence including, an Olive oil tasting, and then onto Fruit, veg markets and wine shopping. It was wonderful to be able to ask questions about local produce in English.
Wine, french dishes, local atmosphere, chatting with other guests from other places if you are interested in either (or all) of them, I strongly recommend this. I myself would love to come back and join the tour again.
