I offer Provence bound travelers private chauffeured excursions and a “change of pace” tour alternative, designed to suit every walk of life. My deep passion for my own region and my never-ending enthusiasm combine to insure that you will see and taste the best Provence has to offer with an emphasis on Cultural Tourism, Entertainment, & Gastronomy. 10 years of combined experience in the guest service and hospitality industries helped me understand the importance of a service that is dedicated to creating a reliable, personal, and positive travel experience. With a comfortable air-conditioned van, I can tour up to 6 passengers in my own vehicle, and up to 8 in a rental one. Along with my personal language skills and my natural curiosity and enjoyment of diverse cultures and people, you can be assured of a journey you will want to share and perhaps repeat.Representing the “heart” of my region to the world is my pleasure.

I was in a small group of women touring Provence areas of St. Remy, Arles, Avignon, among others. I have been to Provence on my own before, but my experience expanded a hundredfold with Marlene as our guide. She is enthusiastic and oh so knowledgeable about the area, good-hearted, patient, fun-loving, and energetic. She knew the best cooking class, the... More

Our small group spent four fantastic days in Provence with Marlene of Experience Provence. Her enthusiasm and energy are amazing not to mention her knowledge of wines, history and local food. I would not hesitate to recommend Experience Provence.

This was our first visit to Provence and we are so glad we opted for the guided tour. We would never have had the same experience and insider knowledge that Marlene, as a native provided. We visited a number of villages and wineries and had unique experiences dining at the homes of two Provencal natives! When we come back, we... More

She was exactly what we wished! I told her what we wanted to do and see and she made an itinerary perfectly customized to our wishes.... More

Marlene is the tour guide to hire if you are in Provence! She speaks excellent English so there is no problem at all understanding every word. Her tours are fun and informative and she will customize them to whatever is important to you. She went above and beyond on our recent visit by making reservations for dinner, a wine tasting,and...

My family spent two of our days in Provence with Marlene, and she absolutely made our trip. She toured us through Arles and Avignon, and then through some hilltop villages. Marlene makes it feel as though you're being shown around by an old friend. She knows all of the perfect spots to eat, shop, sight see, etc, and so kindly... More
