EXPLORE THE FRENCH RIVIERA LIKE NEVER BEFORE WITH THESE OUT OF THE ORDINARY PRIVATE TOURS
Arrive at Aix-en-Provence and enjoy a private guided walking tour through the old town of Aix, the birth city of artist Paul Cézanne. Discover the Provencal way of life, strolling by the fountains, admiring the old buildings and classical architecture, as well as old Provencal churches. Aix-en-Provence is a canvas of joyful impressions, of colourful festivals, festivities and traditions, Provencal markets, delicious sun-filled delicacies, walks in the countryside and relaxing activities. No visit to Aix is complete without a trip to Les Deux Garçons, the city's legendary brasserie known informally as the 2Gs. Paul Cézanne came here on occasion to enjoy a very leisurely three-hour apéritif with his friend, the novelist Emile Zola. Very many other famous names have enjoyed a glass here too, including Picasso, Churchill, Mistanguett, Edith Piaf, Jean-Paul Sartre, Alain Delon, Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean Cocteau. After lunch, we will drive you out of Aix -en Provence along the famous panoramic ‘Cézanne’s road’ to the Mountain of Sainte Victoire, which inspired over 40 of Cézanne’s paintings.
Gorges du Verdon, known as the French Grand Canyon, is one of the more beautiful river valleys in Europe. In spring the hills are aromatic with wild lavender, rosemary and thyme, and scattered with the tinkling of goat bells. For a day of ultimate adventure, take a Helicopter out to La Bastide de Moustiers, where our professional guide will take you on an excitingly exclusive three hour gorge walk. The walk will culminate with a fabulously prepared picnic by Alain Ducasses’ Michelin starred team at La Bastide de Moustiers.
