Testimonials

Here are some of our guest reviews about our walking and cycling trips in Provence !

Sonya & Grant from Canada  - June 2017:

Walk Self Guided > Colours and scents of the Luberon trails

"Each day had its highlights. Coming into the towns/villages interesting and reading about the history was great. Coming from a country where the oldest building is maybe 200 years old, experiencing buildings churches and walls building in the 1200 was amazing. All accommodations and restaurantswere exceptional. I would recommend the tour to friends."

"Our Walk Inn guide - David - provided my wife and I a spectacular day biking through the countryside and smaller towns. He was very knowledgeable of local history and repeatedly pointed out items of interest. As he recognized we were strong bike riders, he adjusted our itinerary accordingly....we would highly recommend."

Robert & Junith & friends from Montreal - Canada - May 2017:

Cycling Self Guided > Customized Cycling on the wine roads of Provence with Ventoux cycling
Have a look at the TRIP ADVISOR feed back ! 

"The Nesque Gorge bike ride was beautiful and within everyone's capabilities. Avignon was enjoyed by all. Generally cycling through the countryside of Provence on quiet, good quality roads and having picnic lunches. Nadia and others at Walk Inn were very responsive to our requests for information, choice of routes, hotels, bikes, taxis - and alternate plans when Junith broke her wrist a few weeks before the trip. The trip was very well organized, hotel bookings went as planned and all the taxi bag transfer was on schedule. Walk Inn knows the good service providers and the area very well. We would travel with Walk Inn again and certainly recommend you to friends."

Michael & Celia from Auckland - New Zealand  - May 2017:

Cycling Self Guided > Provence cycling: an Impressionist’s dream

"We really enjoyed the cycling and found your trip to be well thought out. The information in the road book was full and complete and we also liked the extra information given about each location. The hotels were all of a good standard and very comfortable. The restaurants were also good."

Rina, Jeanette & Jane from Toowoomba Australie - April 2017:

Walking Guided > Provence uncovered: Dentelles, Luberon, Alpilles
“Anne Charlotte - our guide -  was the perfect guide for us. Her knowledge of native flowers, herbs was exceptional and we thoroughly enjoyed her company over the 7 days. Her professionalism was second to none. Loved the picnics in such amazing settings. Just loved the different settings for each stay. Staff very helpful and welcoming. Auberge des Seguins absolutely delightful.The scenery - left me speechless !"

Jane & Adam from Henley-on-Thames - UK - April 2017:

Cycling  Self-guided > Provence cycling: an Impressionist’s dream
"We really enjoyed the itineraries and it was very useful to have places of interest written up on the directions. The Fleur de Thym was outstandingly good. The village of Maussane was our favourite. We enjoyed the quieter lanes and cycling by the river, and visiting all the villages. The bicycles were very good and we had no problems whatsoever with them. The gears were excellent. We thought the organisation and directions were excellent. We liked the feeling that we were travelling independently, without any unnecessary interaction with the office."

Hannah, Annabel, and Cecily from London - UK - April 2017:

Walking  Self-guided > Walk from Van Gogh's landscapes to the Luberon
"Absolutely fantastic itinerary, the best walking trip I've ever done. Beautiful scenery, fabulous food and perfect distances. We spent the whole week exclaiming how wonderful Walk Inn are and how well-planned the entire trip was, right down to the punctual taxi drivers and friendly hotel staff. Can't wait to do the next one !! I loved the first walk around St Rémy with spectacular view out over the cliffs and also the walk around Gordes through the valley and via the Abbaye de Sénanque. We also loved the simplicity and lovely setting of the Auberge des Seguins (very satisfying to arrive and leave by foot!).Just a fabulous holiday, thank you for a superb holiday, I can't wait to do the next one with Walk Inn !!!!

Karen & Bruce from Toronto - Canada - April 2017:

Cycling  Self-guided > Van Gogh's Provence: short and sweet
"I thoroughly enjoyed the first day of riding. The second day had its challenges. I didn't mind the elevation as we just took our time. We found the accommodations perfect! I loved the charm of each place and the very warm reception we received. The restaurants were very nice. It was nice to experience local foods and french cooking. I loved the beauty of the rides. The bikes were excellent and Nadia was very quick to respond to any questions/concerns that I had. I would travel again with Walk Inn. The trip was seamless, very well done! Thank you for making this a trip of a lifetime.  All of the places we went and the people we me added to the experience and I would (and have already!) recommend your company to others! :) "

Jay & Anne & friends from New York - USA - April 2017:

Walking  Guided > Customized 8 days trip in the Luberon & Ventoux - 6 persons
"Stuart was a wonderful guide ! He worked with our private group to arrange day hikes taking into account our varying degrees of interest and levels, and was informative and supportive on the trail. The lodging was excellent, both in functionality and providing unique experiences. The food was amazing, including special arrangements for picnic lunches and guest chefs at dinner. And, Stuart’s company was a great treat. We all had a marvelous time, and we all plan to hike with Stuart again next year !"

"Great Experience ! Having a qualified guide in a place like Provence makes all the difference in the world. Olivier our guide was excellent. He showed up exactly on time, with brand new bikes ready and a packed lunch- with a bottle of rosé. Olivier discussed the terrain, the history, and knew lots of little areas off the beaten path where we can get views and scenery away from everybody else. But he also knew when to step into the background and just let us enjoy our surroundings. We felt we truly had an experience from an insider's point of view. This was one of the highlights of our two week trip. Walk Inn Provence provided great communication while booking the trip with personal emails responding to specific questions. We felt very taken care of throughout the entire experience."

David & Navah from Israel - Nov 2016:

Walking Self-guided > Luberon medieval villages 
"We had a lovely time in Provence. We want to thank you very much for the good planning, willing service, and excellent choices. As you tried to prepare us, travelling in November is indeed a different experience. Provence is lovely, with lovely special autumn colors, fresh air, a bit on the cold side. Very quiet and peaceful. Our hosts and taxi driver were great: warm, friendly and helpful. The booklets with the walking instructions and the maps were easy to follow. The Auberge des Seguin is stunning don't let people miss it because of internet-cellphone addiction. We had a great time. "

James & Betsy from USA - Nov 2016:

Walking Self-guided > Customized - Colours and scents of the Luberon
" We loved our trip and the walking and our hotels. The absolute best BB was Wendy's B and B in Gordes. We loved it! It was beautiful and perfectly kept with the best breakfast and Wendy and her husband were lovely. We also loved Capelongue but the accommodations were not as nice as we had expected. We did however have wonderful meals at both restaurants there and the staff were so kind. We liked Le Clos Violette and the proprietor was wonderful as well. We loved all the restaurants especially Le Vivier in isle ! And also the Bastide de Capelongue was excellent ! The Bergerie restaurant there was also excellent. Casa Rosario in Gordes was great for pizza and pasta. Again, we had the best time !!! Walk Inn was great . Thank you for customizing it for us - we would love to do another one in the future. Maybe with our children! Thank you - we love Provence !!! "

Kathy & John & Friends from Janesville - USA - Oct 2016:

Cycling Self-Guided > From Châteauneuf du Pape to the Pont du Gard 
"We had a wonderful time in Provence. We want to thank you for your support and help in making this a great trip for us. We appreciated your quick responses to questions and concerns we had prior to the trip. We would recommend you to anyone planning a trip like this. We found the hosts/hostesses at each place we stayed to be outstanding! We could not have been more pleased with the accommodations and the people we met at each stop along our route. This trip provided many life long memories we will cherish forever. The route planning was excellent, complete and accurate. Thank you !"

Henri & 12 friends from Canada - Oct 2016:

Cycling Guided > Customized Villages of Ventoux and majesty of the Luberon 
"I would like to say that all aspects of the tour exceeded expectations. The hotels were comfortable and the the food was excellent. Probably my favourite restaurant was at la bastide de voulonne - we were treated as very special family guests and the quality of the food reflected that. Our guide Stuart was wonderful. He is a wonderful combination of gentleman, teacher, mentor and coach. He is a caring man who went out of his way to ensure that each member of our party was well looked after, kept safe and enjoyed the experience. He was able to adapt the itinerary as we went along in order to deliver an experience that was uniquely suited to our group. The vineyard and basil farm experiences added to our immersion in the local culture. The challenge of Mt Ventoux was probably one of the highlights of the trip. I suspect that climb and the subsequent ride down through the Nesque Valley will feature highly in our retelling of our adventures in the years ahead. Any questions Jill and I had were answered promptly and to our satisfaction. We would heartily endorse and recommend your company and wish you every success in the years ahead. thank you again for an unforgettable experience."

Marlene & Perry & 11 friends from Winnipeg - Canada - Oct 2016:

Cycling Guided > Customized Villages of Ventoux and majesty of the Luberon 
"We absolutely adored this trip. The landscape is breathtaking. The rides took us through vineyards, orchards and small medieval villages. Our guide, Stuart was informative, extremely friendly, fun and he made sure we all had a fantastic time. He's a great combination of leader, ambassador and friend. The choices of hotels, restaurants and coffee stops were all first rate. We dined at a vineyard and even got to pick grapes, which we crushed and tasted. We sat outside for an excellent home cooked meal with accompanying wine. On another occasion, ate at a basil farm and made some pesto to drizzle over a delicious soup. You work hard for the meals, but the biking was a great way to see this gorgeous area of France. You don't feel guilty eating or drinking at the end of the day. The Gorge ride was spectacular. The bikes were great and we were accompanied by David in a support van in case we needed a minor tuneup. Markets and picnics and swimming pools....We were pampered and catered to. Felt so special. Exceeded my dream of a biking holiday. So much fun. I'm ready to do it again! We have your team and especially Stuart to thank for a most wonderful trip."

Phyllis from Hawai - USA – Sept 2016:

Walking Guided > Provence uncovered: Dentelles, Luberon, Alpilles
"The Walk Inn trip was everything I hoped it would be. The hikes were neither too difficult nor too easy, but just right in their length, surface, and degree of ascent/descent. My favorite was Fort de Buoux, Les Baux, the Glanum monuments and Cloitre St. Paul in St. Remy. The itineraries were well designed. Our hard-working guide Jean-Bernard was terrific. Knowledgeable (especially about the region’s flora), able to communicate to our mostly English-speaking group, and a terrific cook (excellent picnic lunches). Most importantly, I felt safe with him. I really enjoyed all my interactions with the staff of Walk Inn Provence. In thinking about next year’s walking vacation, I am seriously considering traveling with Walk Inn again and looking at the Corsica trip. All in all, I would highly recommend Walk Inn Provence to anyone looking for a close-up experience of the Provencale countryside. I came away with a real sense of pride and accomplishment, fresh eyes on the world, and despite the hours of walking, probably an extra pound or two (but have no regrets and would eat everything all over again)! Thank you to everyone who made this trip possible."

Debbie & Duncan from Vancouver - Canada - Sept 2016:

Cycling Self-guided > From Chateauneuf du Pape to Pont du Gard
" It was an excellent experience, we could have gone on for couple of days, maybe we could have extended to the Carmargue for an additional experience…next time!
We would you recommend us to your friends : Yes, and yes!"

Eric & Gerri from California - Usa - Sept 2016:

Walking Self-guided > Colours & scents of the Luberon
"Overall, we had a great walking tour in Provence. The route, directions, and accommodations, were all very good. This includes the dinner reservations and the lunches. It was near perfect. The staff at the Bastide inn in Saignon, including the owner/chef, were outstanding. Also, having pools at all of the inns was very nice, given the hot days. Again, the trip was great. We will certainly continue to recommend you to our friends."

Pam & Norm from Australia - Sept 2016:

Cycling Self-guided > From Chateauneuf du Pape to the Pont du Gard
"Arriving early on the first day at Chateauneuf du Pape was a good introduction to reading the directions and also a great place to taste wines in the afternoon. At La Casa de Boulbon, we ate as part of the family which was enjoyable. The special HIGHLIGHTS for uw were the restaurants in Avignon, the delightful town of Boulbon and the great timing for our visit with the running of the bulls with the big Carmague white horses. Yes, we certainly would travel again with you and have already recommended you to various friends."

Maureen & David from Oregon - USA - Sept 2016:

Walking Self-guided > Wine & Gourmet walking : Chateauneuf du Pape
" We two couples did enjoy our walking trip. The overnight accommodations were excellent choices; the two included dinners very well prepared and served and the wineries and village destinations were well chosen providing a diverse and quality experience.  Best wishes to you and Walk Inn."
