I am a licensed tour guide operating in Provence. I specialize in organizing private minivan guided tours in Provence for individuals and small groups: minibus private tours, wine tours, shore excursion, theme tours. I am a native of Provence and studied History and Art History as well as English language in Aix en Provence.

As a native of the area, I know it very well and thanks to my hobbies like rock climbing and hiking, I am always wandering along the paths of Provence looking for new marvels, new spots to explore and to show to the visitors I tour with. Curious by nature, I will show you, not only the basic spots, those "you must see", but also unknown places that will help you to experience the different faces of Provence. My address book is full of good restaurants, scenic roads, fine wine cellars and of very special addresses that are so typical of Provence (lavender, olive oil, pottery).

You choose a pre-planned itinerary (The Luberon quaint villages / Arles, les Baux de Provence, Saint Remy de Provence / Arles and the Camargue area / Nimes and Pont du Gard / Avignon and the Southern Rhone Valley / Aix en Provence,the Mount Sainte Victoire and the painter Cezanne. Or I customize a tailor-made itinerary according to your wishes: wine tour, shopping adventure, cooking and painting classes and much more. The company also provides transfers (airport, TGV train station, hotel, rental house).

Catherine is a very knowledgeable tour guide and is extremely accommodating and friendly.
My twin sons were on the trip with me (one of them was studying ... view more abroad in Lyon France) and she was able to tailor the tour around our needs and
interests.

In sum, she was delightful and I was glad to have her as our tour guide, I would recommend her to anyone in a heart beat though.

Catherine is a very safe driver, knowledgeable, excellent at determining what to see based on my interests, very good at explaining culture, history, geography, ... view more French society.
Catherine D'ANTUONO was very accommodating in meeting my request to do part of the tour in French. Thus, I also received a multi-hour tutoring session in French. It was a memorable day visiting the charming French hilltowns of the Luberon with a wonderful guide.

This was the best personal tour guide we have ever used.

During our 2 weeks in France, there was no comparison to depth of knowledge and communication skills in guiding our tour.

The best tour we had throughout our 10-day trip. Catherine was responsive to our changes in itinerary as we were shown the sights, was extremely knowledgeable ... view more about everything, and generally was a pleasure to be around. Very highly recommended and would contact her again if I'm in the area. The following are the list of products which you ordered information for.
