Her entire professional life dedicated to tourism and introducing France to visitors... she relocated to Provence 10 years ago and delights in sharing this wonderful region!
Provence chefs arranged a full day tour of the villages of the Luberon valley which we thoroughly enjoyed. Pricey, but well worth it considering the convenience of having a knowledgeable guide and not having to worry about navigating and parking.
Just a short note to say how much all of us enjoyed our two days with you earlier this week.
You are a superb guide and ambassador for Provence and France - we sincerely hope we have another opportunity to work with you in the future.
All the best.
louise, this is such a belated note to let you know how much my friends and i enjoyed having claire as our guide for two days in early september. she was so professional and entertaining. she made avignon really come alive to us, and we just loved our visits to gordes, rousillion and goult. and, of course, we loved the tours of the wineries in chateauneaf du papes!!
quite simply put, she’s the best!!
Laurence Minard-Amalou is very highly recommended as a a private tour guide. She did two half day walking tours with us (Avignon and Arles). She was personal, knowledgeable and also made appreciated accommodation for the two children in our family.
Claire Paris, who guided us to Avignon and Pont du Gard is smart, incredibly funny, patient and loving. She obviously loves what she does and it is contagious.
Laurence, the tour guide we used, is a wonderful guide as well and we loved every minute of the two tours she gave us - a beautiful, kind and extremely knowledgable guide to history, art, villages and wine.
Claire's tour was fantastic. She is a very knowledgeable guide and she got the tone right
