Create Priceless Memories in Provence

Our tours are specifically designed for those who wish to immerse themselves in French culture. Each tour day is brimming with something new and exciting—French cooking classes, market trips, antiquing and exploring the extraordinary beauty of Provence.

Jackdaw Journeys knows how complicated life is. We’re all guilty of pushing our hopes and dreams aside. Do you find yourself saying, “One of these days, I’ll finally take that trip I’ve always wanted to?” Jackdaw Journeys helps you make “one of these days” a reality—with a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Provence. In fact, many of our Guests love our tours so much, they’ve traveled to Provence with us twice or more!

Our intimate tours are limited to groups of up to 10 Guests. Jackdaw Journeys is about much more than just seeing a new region, or experiencing French culture firsthand—it’s about taking a break from your humdrum routine to unwind, refresh and reinvigorate… by nurturing your soul.

Meet Your Provence Tour Guide, Dee Poquette

“My love affair with Provence began 12 years ago when I attended my first cooking school at Julia Child’s home in Plascassier. Ever since, I’ve made it a point to return to Southern France as often as possible to visit what has become my home away from home, and to share this extraordinary corner of the world with my fellow travelers.”

Jackdaw Journeys Tour Testimonials

“This was more than just a tour, it was a life changing experience that is hard to put into words. I have traveled through many parts of the world, usually on an agenda we plan ourselves, but what separated Jackdaw Journeys from the trips we’ve planned was the amount of regions we were able to visit in 8 days without feeling like we were being rushed around from place to place. Dee has clearly done her research and knows the area left and right – we didn’t feel like tourists on this trip, we felt like we were visiting our home away from home. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for an immersive experience in one of the most beautiful regions in the world.” – Jacin F.

“I’ve taken two amazing Jackdaw Journeys trips to Provence, France. I prefer small group tours so this was perfect for me. We visited many local markets and the most beautiful, quaint villages. The boat ride along the French Riviera was a highlight. Needless to say, the food is amazing! Dee Poquette was the perfect host; highly organized, accommodating, and lots of fun! I’m sure I will be going again in the not too distant future.” – Lisa B.

“Dee’s tours focus on cuisine, sights of interest in Provence, and market shopping, both antique and new. She is familiar with many markets– Aix en Provence, L’Isle-sur-la- Sorgue, Nice, Evenos and the seaside market of Sanary-sur- Mer. If you want to spend 8 days in Provence and on the French Riviera, have company and a fine safe driver and have an itinerary already planed out for you, this kind of experience would be suitable for you. We saw a lot, did a lot, ate a lot, had a lot of fun, and made some fine memories and of course brought a lot of souvenirs. Bon Voyage!” – Diane A.
