Bonjour Provence Reviews
The Provencal culinary tour included an interesting variety of experiences. It was well planned. The drivers and guide were on time, fun and knowledgeable. We went from markets, to restaurants, mountains to the sea town of Cassis. The cooking classes too were fun and informative, each one very different. One class in an old French house with an artist and chef, another in the market of Avignon and the third with two jolly sisters and large amounts of foie gras and truffles. The picnic in the lavender field was lovely and the house in Massane was comfortable, with a nice pool, important on hot summer days and good air conditioning. The host was friendly and helpful. More bath towels and toilet paper would have been nice. The breakfasts were lovely with croissants and breads and fresh fruits and home made jam. It was a wonderful trip!

Bonjour Provence was an absolutely delightful tour! Every detail was thoughtfully planned, and our local contact, Amelie, was extremely professional and one of the best tour guides we have ever encountered. Her attention to detail is to be commended. Our cooking workshops were educational and entertaining. Both Chef Yvan and Chef Pascal made us feel at home in their kitchens. We greatly appreciated their kindness and patience, and the food we prepared was simply divine! Our daily trips to many of the local villages gave us a good feel for the Provencal history and culture. We highly recommend the Mas in Maussane les Alpilles as a place to stay when in Provence. It is very comfortable, has lovely gardens, interesting art and decor, and is conveniently located for exploring this beautiful part of France. This was our first trip with The International Kitchen. It went beyond our expectations, and we will certainly check their offerings when planning our next trip. If you love food and travel, as we do, this tour was the perfect combination of both.
