Absolutely and Highly Recommended!
Oct 2021 • Couples
We did the tour in mid October. We were lucky with the weather, great conditions to start the tour with Christopher! Christopher is a great tour guide. He showed us paths off the beaten track, provided detailed historical information combined with contemporary insight knowledge about Avignon, so that in the end, after a few hours we felt like we knew so much more of the city now. The Pope Palace tour can be very long and tiring if you use only the headphones guide, but Christopher knew where to set the highlights die go his experience not only with the Palace but also with his tourists. We had a tour in Aix in the rain with our teenage son, which he handled as well as the tour in Avignon with the two of us as a couple. Also it is Great chatting to him over coffee and lunch. We would always book Ooh Provence again!

My daughter and I had the opportunity to visit Avignon in early January, and Chris was an excellent guide. He was knowledge and personable and made our short time in the area very memorable. I highly recommend OohProvence, and I look forward to touring with them again.

Excellent opportunity to visit a walled city
Oct 2019
Funny thing to say, but I remember singing the song in school about the bridge and the visit to see the bridge completed my memory.

We spent about 2 hours exploring the town and could have used more time.

Lots to see and a great place to visit.

Chris is the best guide!!
Oct 2019 • Couples
Anyone who wants personal attention and to learn the history of any city in Provence needs Chris as their guide! He gave us a phenomenal tour and then helped us find our parked car, which we’d still be looking for otherwise. He was the best guide we have had to date. He is originally British so very easy to understand. We also had him the next day for Aix and he showed us how to get to the parking lot and moved our time back a half hour to accommodate us. I cannot say enough good things about him. I will recommend him to everyone I know going to Provence. Thank you, Chris!!!

Christopher knows Provence
Jul 2019 • Family
Had a perfect tour with Christopher of Avignon. His English is perfect because he’s from England. His knowledge of the region over many time periods was very impressive and detailed. He did an excellent job customizing the tour to our needs. He moved at the pace we wanted with appropriate content. Strongly recommend.

It was so nice to read your review and am so happy you enjoyed the visit to Avignon - it's such an interesting and quite diverse town and in many ways the focus is just on the Palais which is understandable, but what we hope to show is other sides of this beautiful town. Please come visit us again - it was our pleasure to welcome you in Provence. Christopher OohProvence
