Feedback from previous guests
|A truly wonderful 'holiday' in the true sense of the word. Based in one place, the beautiful Charembeau Hotel, with its beautiful gardens and character rooms, it was the best smelling place we have been in, impregnated with the aroma of lavender and honey. We loved the small group size and ate in charming small local restaurants which would not be accessible to a large group. The tour was was conducted at a relaxed pace and we visited many interesting and beautiful places. Travelling with Graeme was like having a friend showing you around, even to the extent of being taken to his wonderful character home. The bus/van was more than adequate for our small group. Cooking schools were held in a charming provincial kitchen and we learned many different and interesting techniques and recipes. Eating on the terrace, the meal we had cooked, was most enjoyable. We would certainly recommend this tour and Walkabout Tours to anyone. We loved it!

|Our experience with Gabriella was fabulous. The weather was mostly kind and we saw so many wonderful places and shared experiences that highlighted the gourmet delights of Provence. Auberge Charembeau accommodation was well located and the service was excellent. Lovely patio setting for breakfast each day. The highlight of this tour for me was the day spent cooking culinary delights at "l'Oustaou d'Oulivin" with Joyce Borgmann. I was also delighted at the unexpected exposure to art at the lavender and olive museums. The mini bus transport was very comfortable and encouraged little naps to help recover from the cuisine and wine tasting events. I can't speak highly enought of Gabriella and the effort she made to ensure that our group experienced as much as possible in this brief but superb tour. I would love to come back to France and would not hesitate to recommend Walkabout Tours to others who would enjoy fine food and wines within a mix of wonderful local and wider Provence sightseeing experiences.

|I particularly loved the olive farm, the Potager and Vineyard, lunch at Alain Ducasse, the lavender fields, and both restaurants in Forcalquier, Salagon, the goat farm and cooking with Joyce. Thank you for making Provence all that I've read about and more!
