private tours in Provence / with english driver ???? + cooking class

Jump to last reply

Bonjour !!
I am planning a trip to Southern France, (Avignon and Nice) with my family between mid-May and mid-June 2012. I know that most of the places to see around these towns are not easy to reach if I decide to use public transportation.
My husband and I do not feel comfortable driving and we thought about hiring a private chauffeur.
Any recommendation ? what is the average cost for such a service ?

we would also love to attend a cooking class during our time in Provence . I read somewhere that it is possible to do the market with the chef and cook afterwards.
That would be awesome !
In advance, thanks a lot for all your input !

    The Day Trips we took through Provence with a local tour guide named Marlene Boyer was expected to be good but it exceeded our expectations. We love Provence, lavender etc and using that became a catalyst for a river boat cruise starting at Chalon sur Saone and ending at Avignon.That's a depth to the experience that you can't do alone. where we were fortunate enough to have booked some day trips with Marlene to visit Luberon and the surrounding area of Gordes, Roussillon, Ocheres, Les Beaux and Arles. Visited an olive oil mill, a honey farm producing lavender honey and amazing roman monuments. If Provence is part of your plans, at least 1 day with Marlene will add a depth to the experience that you can't get alone. You will not waste time getting lost as we did the first days we had to drive our car and you will enjoy the advice of a native everywhere you go. At the end of our stay, she became a real friend , spending some extra time with us !
    We paid around 400 euros for all 4 of us using her van, and a little less when she drove our rental vehicle.
    I am sure that Marlene can help you arrange a cooking class as I remember that she suggested some culinary services in her brochure.
    Her email is experience.provence@gmail.com
    A truly fantastic lady !
