"The trip to Provence was fabulous ! It was a wonderful combination of cooking and excursions. Madelaine is a great tour guide, knows so much, has planned things to the nth degree. She has a great way of keeping everything and everyone together in all situations. Our house in Uzes was beautiful, spacious and in a great location. All a life experience !

The cooking lessons at the house were wonderful. We particularly enjoyed the lamb and the ratatouille, as well as the desserts we baked. The Avignon lesson was also spectacular. In fact the whole trip was just great."

"It takes a return to the normal world to appreciate how special a place Provence is, and how much more of it we were able to see under the tireless shepherding of the Bullwinkels.
The accommodations were superb. It was an ambitious itinerary for visiting local sites, one that inevitably left one wishing for more time at some of them.
Ours was a convivial traveling party.. But the Bullwinkels immediately became part of the tribe."

"Provence Odyssey was one of the best travel experiences we have ever had.There is no better way to travel than to be part of a small group of participants who share common interests. In this case it was, France, food, and regional culture. Add to that guides who are well organized, knowledgeable about the locale, and truly concerned that the entire experience is of high quality for everyone and you have the ideal situation for exploring a new place, or learning more in-depth about a previously visited area."

"The experience of provencal food, culture and sightseeing was all beautifully wrapped into one. Thanks to you and George for sharing your love for France and especially the Provencal.

"But, just a quick note to tell you how much we truly loved cooking with you and of course, sight-seeing was wonderful as well. Thank you both for all you did to make it such a wonderful trip for us. I love the pic of George driving down one of the prettiest roads in France. Such great memories of beautiful sites."
