Day 2: Marseille

Embark on an exciting private day trip encompassing two French Riviera favorites- vibrant Marseille and the ancient fishing port of Cassis. Meet your driver-guide at your hotel and travel south to the seaside town of Cassis. Drive along the scenic Corniche des Cretes road, stopping to admire sweeping, magnificent coastal views of the Gulf of Cassis from Cape Canaille. Head down to Cassis where you'll explore the charming fishing village, wandering along the gorgeous harbor, lined with colorful, pastel-painted houses. Enjoy some free time to browse the markets or perhaps scout out a seafront restaurant for a pause in your day. Later, rejoin your guide and hop aboard a shared cruise to discover the magnificent Calanques of Cassis, effectively the Riviera's version of scenic fjords. Be awed by the untamed nature as you glide past the jagged rock formations, soaring limestone cliffs, and tranquil inlets. Return to Marseille where your guide will take you on a relaxing sightseeing tour, and see historic highlights of France's second largest city, including the hilltop cathedral of Notre-Dame de la Garde, the 5th century Abbey of St Victor, the Old Port, and the stunning gardens and fountains of the Palais Longchamp.

Meet your driver-guide and transfer to the chic and bohemian Aix-en-Provence. Upon arrival, enjoy a wonderful walking tour, immersing yourself in the beauty of the city as you stroll along the picturesque streets, lined with centuries-old private mansions with lavish facades, elaborate fountains and quaint cafes. Spot the town's 17th century cathedral built on the site of a former Roman forum, walk the beautiful tree-lined Cours Mirabeau with the 19th century Fontaine de la Rotonde, and stroll past the Deux Garçons, the famous 18th century brasserie frequented by Ernest Hemingway. During the course of your tour, you'll visit the museum of Atelier Cézanne – a studio where the renowned post-impressionist artist Paul Cézanne created dozens of masterpieces, found today in the world’s best museums.

During summer, enjoy lunch on the sunny restaurant’s terrace under the shade of hundred-year-old chestnut trees, and during the cooler days, take pleasure in having a drink in the cozy Le 1924 bar offering a British club like atmosphere.

Day 4: Aix en Provence

Meet your private driver-guide and set out toward Verdon Gorge, admiring the beautiful scenery of rolling hills as you embark on a full day tour. Verdon Gorge (Gorges du Verdon), named after the river’s striking turquoise-green color, is a deep limestone canyon carved over time by the waters of the Verdon River, creating what is today a nature reserve, rich in flora and fauna, and astonishing scenery. Admire awe-inspiring views from the rim before descending to the end of the canyon where the river flows into Lake of Sainte-Croix, an epic expanse of beauty to behold. After spending some time at the canyon, continue on to the picturesque village of Moustiers Sainte-Marie, nestled at the base of dramatic and rugged mountain formations. Explore the narrow medieval streets, admire the old stone chapel of Notre-Dame de Beauvoir tucked up on the mountainside, and the perhaps even visit some of the ceramics shops for which the village is known. At the end of your day, return to Aix en Provence.

Day 5: Aix en Provence - Les Baux de Provence

Departing this morning with your private driver-guide, you'll transfer to Les Baux de Provence, making a stop in the ancient city of Arles en route, with numerous Roman relics. Upon arrival to Arles, marvel at the ruins of the impressive Arles Amphitheater. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this 2,000-year-old structure formerly held up to 26,000 spectators in its prime. Outside of the town hall, you can spot a 4th century Roman obelisk that was pulled from the River Rhone and erected in the middle of Place de la Republique. Check out the exterior of the 4th century Baths of Emperor Constantine, and witness the ruins of the Roman Theater, even older than the Amphitheater, where stone has been impulsively stripped over time and for use in other projects throughout the city. Continue to Les Baux de Provence, named one of the most beautiful villages in France, largely due to its hilltop position and picturesque stone ruins of the upper old village and castle. Stroll through the quaint, narrow streets and picture the aura of 16th-century life here, when the village was thriving. End your day with a drop-off at your hotel.

Accommodation: Baumanière

Both gastronomic institution and elegant country inn, Baumanière les Baux-de-Provence is a charming hotel in Provence that represents the Mediterranean art of living at its discreet, unpretentious best. The magical setting, spread across five different houses on a 50 acre plot of land, is the ideal backdrop to the art of hospitality practiced for the last eighty years at this family-owned establishment. The guestrooms are nestled amidst the peaceful, gorgeous landscape. The impressive on-site gastronomic restaurant, awarded two Michelin stars, delights its guests with an attention to perfection, while tranquility can be found at the spa and outdoor swimming pool.

Day 6: Les Baux de Provence

Setting out with your private driver-guide, you'll head out into the Provencal countryside where you'll visit a lavender processing factory, immersing yourself in the pleasant aroma and learning how the essential oils -with effective antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties- are extracted from the plants. The lavender fields of Provence spring into bloom for the balmy summer months of June and July each year, blanketing the region’s fields with a vivid violet color. End your factory experience as you're brought out into the fields of these beloved plants and treated to a picnic lunch in a picturesque setting. Later in the afternoon, you'll head along the beautiful Luberon Valley to discover one charming Provencal village after another. Admire the cliff-top settlements, sprawling vineyards, antique shops and the postcard-perfect sights along the way.

Day 7: Les Baux de Provence - Avignon

Meet your private driver-guide and transfer to Avignon. Upon arrival, you'll set out on a wonderful walking tour of the medieval city. Stroll narrow streets filled with history including the 1,100 year-old St. Peter's Church. Discover the iconic Pont d'Avignon, an iconic bridge which appears in nearly every picturesque photograph of this ancient city. Walk up to the Rock of the Doms to enjoy its public gardens and a panoramic view of the city. No visit of Avignon is complete without admiring the massive Palais des Papes (the papal palace), one of the most important Gothic buildings in all of Europe. In the afternoon, head to the UNESCO-listed town Orange where you'll discover Provence’s ancient roots. Home to a Roman amphitheater and a beautifully preserved 2,000-year-old Triumphal Arch, Orange has thousands of years of history to appreciate. Conclude your day back in Avignon.

Accommodation: Hotel d`Europe (B) (Superior Room)

The luxurious Hotel d’Europe is one of the oldest hotels in France. Set in a 16th-century building in the heart of Avignon, it occupies a magnificent location just a 5-minute walk from both the UNESCO-listed Palais des Papes, and the picturesque Avignon Bridge.

Its 44 rooms and suites are decorated luxuriously, yet simply, offering exceptional comfort. Hotel d'Europe creates a timeless place where hospitality is offered discretely, and with warmth, by a loyal and dedicated team of professionals.

Day 8: Avignon

With your private driver-guide, make your way to Chateauneuf-du-Pape, a lovely town in the Rhône Valley surrounded by prestigious wine estates. Marvel at the rolling vineyards, learn about the region’s distinct viticulture and terroir, and stop at a charming family-run estate Domaine de Beaurenard to taste some fine wine and tour the wine cellars. The Coulon family has been managing this estate for 7 generations, respecting traditional wine-making techniques, and their winery boasts an extensive catalog of vintage wines. Afterward, you'll make a trip to the unique Brotte Wine Museum, a must-see for wine fanatics, as it seeks to put guests "in the footsteps of the winegrower."

  • Mary W — May 05, 2019 — Europe

    My Kensington Tours Destination Expert, Jessica Clements, was so helpful and patient as we planned our trip. She was so helpful in recommending things based on her experience and so patient as our dates changed, and we had more ideas about what we wanted to see. Once we got to Greece, our pickups and transfers were seamless. Our tour guides, drivers and destination greeters were all so warm and welcoming. The hotels were fantastic in terms of service and location. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I have already recommended Kensington to several friends.

  • Rita B — April 24, 2019 — Europe

    Our entire visit to Poland was outstanding, first-class. Booking the tour with Karolina Stringer made it so easy. All I did was tell her the places we needed to visit and what was the feel we wanted for the visit. Not only did we want to see the landmarks of Poland, but we also wanted time to walk the squares, sit in the cafes, take public transportation. Everyone we encountered in Poland was top-notch. Our guide for Gdansk was Ewelina Danecka. This amazing woman enchanted us with her knowledge and her joy in sharing her country with us. On our first day, I requested we reverse the first two days of our plan and she was totally flexible. I gave her the name of a very obscure town and she and the driver found it! Ewelina acted as my interpreter with the parish priests of the two towns we specifically needed to visit for our family research. She and our driver stayed with us an extra two hours after they were scheduled to be done for the evening and because of their generosity we saw Wawel Castle, which wasn't on our schedule, we loved it! Our three days with Ewelina were so intense and emotional that we felt we were leaving family when we said goodbye to her. The Hanza Hotel was wonderful, overlooking the riverfront. Warsaw was waiting for us and so was Agnieszka Tomazuk. Agnieszka was wonderful. We were specifically interested to visit the Warsaw ghetto and the war monuments commemorating the valor of the Poles during the WW2. And we were very interested to know about the Polish life under communism. I specifically requested a "good" Chopin concert. We didn't get good, we got a brilliant concert given by Agnieszka Przemyk-Bryla, in the Szuster Palace, not some impersonal concert hall. Her passion for the music combined with her technical ability made that evening unforgettable. The Polonia Palace Hotel was very nice, though not quite within walking distance to the Warsaw town square. On the way to Krakow we stopped at Jasna Gora to see the Madonna. We were guided and educated by one of the nuns of the Monastery. Totally awesome. We could not have done Krakow without our guide, Marta Bochenek. She made sure we knew not just what we were getting into when we went into the Wieliczka Salt Mine, but how to get out and meet up with her, since there were not one, but two exits from the mine. And when we went to Auschwitz, Marta very wisely said that she would be waiting if we decided not to go to the Birkenau portion of the concentration camp visit. Respectfully and reverently done as it was, Auschwitz was so powerful, we decided not to go on to Birkenau. I'm so glad we did go to Auschwitz. The Sheraton Krakow was very fine. Our first cup of "real" coffee in Poland. Most of the hotels' coffee is made from Nescafe or some instant coffee. The coffee at the Sheraton Krakow was really whole roasted coffee. Kensington Tours is contracting with the first class tour agency in Poland. We could not be more satisfied with our entire experience. The mood of our tour exactly matched the attitude I relayed to Karolina at the very beginning of our planning. This trip felt like it was planned just for us. This is our second time using Kensington Tours. Like the first trip, this was OUR tour.

  • Marilyn R — April 22, 2019 — Europe

    The absolute best trip to Europe we have ever taken. The entire process was flawless: best hotels, best guides, etc. This experience was new to us, but now it’s the only when I will travel! Kensington tours was the best. A truly 5-star experience from beginning to the end!

  • Sharayu T — May 13, 2019 — Europe

    The Eastern Europe trip was fabulous. Everything went smoothly. The guides and drivers were excellent. We enjoyed the trip immensely. To begin with, our arrival at Budapest train station and meeting up with Mr. Sandor went flawlessly. We were a little anxious as the main train station was closed, but when we got down at Budapest Kelenfold, it was such a relief to see Mr. Sandor waiting for us. All our guides, Sandor, Bozena, Agnieszka, and Sandra were very knowledgeable, friendly, and adaptable. They intermixed personal stories and anecdotes that made understanding the history and culture at each place very gratifying. The accommodations were comfortable, and the locations were perfect. Eastern Europe with its old traditions and architecture, and the suppressed existence during Nazi and Russian occupations offers a very different and distinctive experience. Thanks to Jessica Clements for facilitating a unique travel itinerary.

  • Mary Ann C — April 09, 2019 — Europe

    Courtney was wonderful. She worked through all of my concerns and was very flexible when Delta caused a plan change. Her responses to my requests were promptly answered and her communication with me was excellent. Petur, our guide, was a delight. We enjoyed Iceland and his thorough knowledge helped us to experience all the country had to offer.

  • John C — April 20, 2019 — Europe

    Jiri, our driver/guide in Slovenia, really made our trip. He is knowledgeable, flexible, and responsive. Even has a university degree in art history! He connected many of the dots between Slovenia and what has been going on in the rest of Europe over the past centuries!

  • Diana S — May 25, 2019 — Europe

    The itinerary was perfect, considering we only had 5 days to fit in this extension of our 22 day Transatlantic Cruise. Hope did a great job in coordinating for us the highlights of Sicily. All the guides and drivers are always helpful and knowledgeable from Kensington. In Agrigento, our guide was an archaeologist who teaches at universities. He had notebooks with diagrams and maps to show us exactly what we were looking at. He answered questions so thoroughly, we felt that we had a tour and a history lesson. It was amazing and the pace of all the tou

  • Kathleen K — May 15, 2019 — Europe

    We enjoyed working with Jamie Boar. She was knowledgeable, communicated well, friendly, and professional. We got all we wanted from the personal tours planned and were impressed with the high quality of the guide. We will certainly use Kensington Tours again.

  • Cynthia D — April 20, 2019 — Europe

    I found Kensington Tours on Google. At my first visit to the site, I was contacted immediately by Julie Couturier. She made my inquiry seem like we were having coffee, and she just happened to know everything I needed to make me choose her as my representative and travel expert. I was recommended to other tour companies, by friends, but it was Julie that made me realize Kensington was the best choice. We started our discovery in 2018 and because I was traveling with my grandchildren, I wanted to ensure the trip was perfect. We had to make changes as we went along, first because we were able to confirm a suite at the Marriott Grand Residence on Park St. with reward points. Julie was quick to make all the necessary changes in our tours. We felt privileged to have had the tour guides that Julie set for us, each one was so very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humour which kept our 13 and 11 years old interested. Julie suggested a play and what child can say the saw “Matilda” in London. We certainly would not have enjoyed our trip as much if we had tried to do this on our own. Julie suggested a visit to Warner Bros Harry Potter and it was worth every moment. I would have never gone there, so congrats again to Julie. She was also able to advise us as to where to purchase groceries for our room, having lived in London previously. I have had many friends travel around the world and I don’t know of one that speaks as highly of their tour company or their travel expert the way my family has. Thank you Kensington Tours and especially Julie.

  • Rena K — April 06, 2019 — Europe

    We were extremely impressed with every aspect of our trip. We were celebrating our 30th anniversary and it could not have been more perfect. Chantal, our Destination Expert, worked with us to make sure that my physical limitations were not a problem. Each guide and driver took such good care of us. They were so knowledgeable and helpful. We plan on booking with Kensington again in the future. The service and amazing itinerary could not have been better. Thank you for memories that will last a lifetime!
