Hi Laurence

We have been home almost two weeks from our travels in France.

We just wanted to thank you once again for your excellent guiding and company when we did our day tour of Provence with you.

It was an extremely memorable and pleasant day.

Thanks also for the restaurant recommendation. We enjoyed a very good lunch there, along with one of the wines from the winery we went to with you.

Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year – we hope you are still guiding when we return – we still have lots to see!!

Best wishes until then

They had a great time on their trip and I wanted to share some of their comments with you. They really loved their guide Laurence in Provence (“She was a wealth of history and cultural information and a great companion”) but they were not crazy about the guide in Eze. For the future, please do request Laurence for any clients visiting the Provence area.

Hi Laurence,

We so much enjoyed touring with you and saw areas we never would have seen on our own.  Thanks so very much for making those days so special.   We thought Menerbe and the Luberon surroundings were so beautiful.  We also enjoyed the olive oil and wine tastings and seeing lovely Eygalieres.  You are so knowledgeable about the details, so we enjoyed learning from you.  Jeff asked if we talked about France’s politics and the new President and that is when I realized Jeff could have brought another dimension to our tour!  Ha!  It was wonderful seeing you again and it just didn’t seem like it had been 5 years ago that we met.

Thanks again for a wonderful few days,

Janice and Francee, June 2012

 


 

We had a wonderful day with Laurence as our private guide, exploring the hill towns of the Luberon region of Provence.

Her impeccable English, detailed knowledge and ability to personalize to our interests, blended into a long day that went by in a flash.

Plus, she is a good driver!

Highly recommended!

Hello Laurence,

It was a pleasure to experience Avignon and Les Baux with you.  Thank you so much for your wonderful tours!

We are looking forward to returning to Provence in the future.  We will be sure to notify you to assist with our planning.

I may have misplaced a pair of Gucci sunglasses in your car.  Please let me know if you locate them. 

Thank you so much,

Bonjour Laurence,

Just a quick note to say that the May 26th clients positively loved your tour. They really had only good things to say about it and mentioned you went the extra mile to make it special for them.

As always, thank you so much for taking such good care of my clients. Here's to many more to come !

Kind Regards,

Nichole, travel agent in the UK, June 2011

 


 

Hi Laurence,

First, want to pass on to you that we've received great compliments about you from the group.  They all greatly enjoyed their time with you! 

Coleen, travel agent in Texas, May 2011

De la mano de la simpatía, la cordialidad y la inteligencia  de Laurence, en la primavera del 2010 pude concretar un sueño largamente acariciado: Conocer esas "joyitas" que son los pueblos recónditos del Luberon.

 

Maravllosa  e inolvidable experiencia  que despertó en mi el deseo y la esperanza  de realizar otros viajes, guiada por el conocimiento,  la afabilidad y el profesionalismo de tan excepcional guìa.Muchas gracias Laurence!

Dear Laurence,

We had a great 2 days in Paris but to be honest we were shell shocked after the serenity of Lacoste.  We have never been so relaxed as we were for that week.  You provided such comfort and knowledge about the beautiful areas in which we traveled.  It is something we will never forget.  Thank you so much for all you did for us and the patience you showed as we moved along very slowly.  At least no one fell and we did get to see so much.  You went over and above in the service you provided for us.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Bonjour Laurence!  Cindy ("Sabine") and I thank you for sharing with us a bit of your extensive knowledge of all things French.  It was a real pleasure to meet you.  Until we meet again -- a bientot.    ---

Cindy and Jeff, NYC, Oct. 2010

 


 

Bonjour Laurence -

Marsha and I wanted to echo what Isaac and Jeff have written to you.  It was a real pleasure to meet you and spend a few days with you.  You made our trip to Provence so much more enjoyable.  You are extremely knowledgable and are fun to be around.  I know that you got us to see places and do things we could not have done on our own.  Those were much appreciated.  I know it was difficult for you sometimes to deal with 10 people.  All in all, having you as a guide to Provence clearly enhanced the experience.  Needless to say, if anybody I know asks, I will recommend you.   

Again, thanks.  A bientot,

David, USA, Oct 2010

 


 

Bonjour, Laurence!

Thank you once again for your wonderful guidance during our visit to Provence.  You made the trip so meaningful, with historical details and background that helped us to understand what we were experiencing.  Your patience and understanding showed us that you are a true professional.

Thanks once again, and we wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors.

With affection,

Robin and Bruce, USA, Oct 2010

 


 

As we have already told our travel agent, you are an exceptional guide.  We would delight in seeing more of Provence when circumstances permit and in seeing more of it with you.  Some how you manage the difficult modern challenge of being a professional woman and still one who guards the traditions of culture and family that women have protected for generations. Both of us respect that.

John and Jeanne, Chicago, Oct 2010

 


 

I contracted Laurence as the guide for a painting workshop I organized. (August 29 - September 5, 2010)  After speaking on the phone and emailing over 6+ months, we collaborated and came up with a wonderful 3-day program (with an additional impromptu day.)  She was everything you would not only want in a guide, but also in a genuine, intelligent and warm person.  The group all felt the same way. I feel privileged to have met her and hope to continue a personal and professional relationship.

I would give her a "10" in all the categories. I can't applaud her enough for contributing to the success of this trip.

Regards,

Ellen Greenberg

Laurence,

Many thanks for a wonderful 2 days of touring your beautiful Provence.  For me, it was the highlight of our trip.  

We visited the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and it was a delight to see the paintings through fresh eyes - to have visited

Arles and St. Remy with you and to have stood at the places he painted.  And our shopping stops with you were the best ever!

Everyone loves the lavender, and of course, I am sorry I didn't buy more.

Many thanks and best wishes,

Ellen,

Laurence,

Our trip home was fine and connection was easy, as you predicted.

Thanks for a wonderful trip. Seeing France through your eyes presents a very nice view. Cannot wait to return.

Best to you,

Francee and I want to thank you for a memorable day

We can't wait to return and to visit more of your beautiful world

Best of health and success

Dear Laurence:

What a pleasure to  meet you and spend our delightful day together, we all agree that it was perfect.  We wanted to thank you again for all your careful driving, interesting educational information and your thoughtful and considerate nature.  The day was so much more than we could ever have imagined and Carcassonne is a real jewel.  Everything turned out wonderful, our lunch, our walking tour and the amazing castle.  Your tips are so helpful that we know we will be able to see some very unusual and unknown places we might have missed due to your considerable knowledge.  

Michelle from USA, July 2010

 


 

En el mes de mayo de 2010 hice mi quinto viaje a Francia pero esta vez no fui a París, quería conocer la Provenza profunda. Así conocí, por intermedio de una amiga, a Laurence gracias a quien logré mi deseo de visitar a lugares, diría no convencionales, sino los pequeños pueblos del sur de Francia, luminosos, bellos, tranquilos, con el sello del terruño.

 

Debo decir que la experiencia fue por demás gratificante y rica, gratificante por la amabilidad del entorno y rica por la generosidad en todo sentido de “mi guía”. Sólo deseo repetir el viaje, pues aunque conocí mucho, mucho y maravilloso queda aún por ver.

Dear Laurence,

Now that my head is finally clearing a bit, I am starting to think of my great journey in France.  I believe my time in Provence was my favorite of the three locations which we visited.  Our time with you was so great - thank you for your time and proffessionalism.  We really enjoyed being with you and learning about the history and culture of Provence.  I will most definately be coming back some day with my husband and son.

Bonjour Laurence.  Peter and Larry thoroughly enjoyed your walking tour of Arles yesterday. Thank you so much for squeezing them into your busy Christmas week.  They said you were very knowledgeable, and of course the weather turned out to be ideal.  Both of them came home with some wonderful photos.  Merci et bonne annee!

Patricia, from USA, Dec 2009

 


 

Bonjour Laurence,

Lawrence and I, and even Phillip, truly enjoyed our time with you, touring the various parts of Provence and seeing so much that is different for us.  I particularly enjoyed getting to know you and the glimpses of French life you offered.  Lawrence is still talking about the Pont du Gard to anyone who will listen.  That was truly spectacular.  

My pottery arrived from Arles even before I got home - all in one piece and spectacular. Thank you for taking me to that shop.

If we should get back to Provence I'll be sure to call you, and will definitely recommend you to any friends who are visiting.  If you should find yourself in Florida, do give me a call.  

Take care.

Best wishes,

Tracey, from Florida, Nov. 2009

 


 

Dear Laurence,

What a pleasure it was to spend our time in Provence with you.  You are a delight and I look forward to spending a “girl’s” day shopping with you

During our next trip.

Of course the warm weather would have made a more perfect trip although we couldn’t have asked for anything more.  We loved the shopping, the markets, the food… And your company. (as well as the historical sites, too)

Be well,

Thank you,

Shelley, USA, October 2009

 


 

Hi Laurence, Hope you are well. I have been meaning to write to you to say thank you and since I returned, things have been so hectic. In any case, I did want to thank you so very much for your great guiding services. We really enjoyed the time we spent with you, and what's even more important, my kids were also so satisfied. I would say that's a real vote of confidence since kids that age are difficult to please. Everything was great and all your choices of where to go and where to eat, what to see and do were perfect. We just wish we had another day or two.

Dear Laurence,

The rest of the trip continued to be as informative and enjoyable as the beginning and Ed and I had a wonderful time.  Thank you again for your wonderful tours.  You certainly gave us a wonderful history lesson and sightseeing tour of the region.  We definitely liked Avignon better than Montpellier.  I loved the charm of the former.

Viajé sola a Francia en julio de 2008 a fin de conocer Provence y participar unos días del Festival de Teatro de Avignon.

Con las sugerencias brindadas por Laurence pude planificar un viaje cultural, ameno y muy enriquecedor.

Además de su profesionalismo como guía, destaco su generosidad en cada recomendación y en su interés por satisfacer todas mis inquietudes.

Fue una hermosa y estimulante experiencia!
