What you'll do

Meet me to explore the provençal market; a feast for all the senses that is a must for any trip to Aix-en-Provence. Soak up it's vibrancy, luminosity and ambiance. It's a typical provençal market offering a mouth watering selection of fruits,
vegetables, and goodies from the South such as olives, tapenade and lavender honey.

We will then go off the beaten track where I will guide you around the local artisans where we will taste regional products including patisseries, cheeses and local wine.

We'll wander the narrow streets of the historical center and you'll discover charming town squares and romantic fountains. We'll savor the local delicacy; Calisson - a product originating from Aix itself!

To top off the experience we'll finish with an aperitif next to a fountain with a delicious mezze* and local wine.

*Sunday aperitif will be a selection of cheeses and rosé wine

Claudine is a very special person. Her tour is not only about food but also the culture and history of Aix en Provence. Her knowledge of the food and her relationship with the vendors made the experience truly personal and special. I not only learned about the best places to go for the best food but Claudine shared information about places to go in nearby towns and cities and how to get there. I'm here for a month so this information is very helpful. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone coming to Aix.

What a wonderful, worthwhile addition to our trip! After a week in France exploring on our own, it was such a refreshment to have someone to follow and learn from. Claudine knows her way around Aix very well, knows all the local stories, best shops and market retailers. It felt like a good friend showing you around their city rather than a stiff tour guide and we are so thankful for the opportunity to learn from Claudine! She made it easy to feel comfortable in the city and answered all the random questions I had - it was a delight to spend time with her! I can not recommend this tour enough!

Thank you Claudine for a wonderful tour of the delicious food and drink in Aix. Claudine was warm, friendly and very knowledgeable about local producers and their fabulous produce. We tried wonderful coffee, pastries, tapenades, dips, jams, honeys, nougat, callisons, pissaladiere, a very special chocolate cake, local wine and cheeses. An exhausting list but the tour wasn’t - perfectly paced with time stop and savour the treats. Claudine also pointed out many shops and restaurants where good food could be bought and/or eaten. A must do tour for anyone visiting Aix!
