Sample five of the Back-Roads tours for which this special deal applies_
Val and Greg said the 9 Day Provence & The French Riviera was “a great trip through the beautiful countryside of Provence with lots of picturesque hilltop villages. Max, our French guide and driver was fabulous. We can't speak highly enough of him. He has lived and worked in Australia and had a great understanding of our 'culture' and sense of humour. At every town he would take us on a walking tour describing the local points of interest and history and putting it in context with what we had seen before. He could recommend restaurants everywhere we went, and he had in depth knowledge of the area.”
