Yes, there will always be at least one vegetarian option on the menu. And if not, we will always be able to work something out with the chef! We have very good relationships with our partner restaurants and they are always happy to accommodate our guests with special diets.
We decided to remove Aix from our tour in 2019 because it was too similar to Montpellier and that we like to keep our itineraries as diverse as possible. Also Aix-en-Provence could easily take two whole days to visit, we felt like the visit was rushed. Instead we advice you to visit Aix after our tour! It’s a perfect city to visit on your own, stay in a hotel for 2 to 3 nights in the city center and enjoy the city on foot. (Everything is walkable). We actually put together a Aix-en-Provence extension package that you can add to your tour. For $200 per person a private chauffeur will drive you from the hotel in Palavas (our tour) to your hotel in Aix-en-Provence (2h drive). We also include a guide that we made ourselves with recommendations for hotels, restaurants and things to do/see. I also includes a 2 day sample itinerary that you can follow as well as a map making your time in Aix hassle-free! > Read more about the Aix-en-Provence 2 day self-guided tour here.
