Provence Afternoon Half-Day Trip from Avignon

Avignon, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

We were looking to see several hilltop villages in the Avignon area and decided on this tour. We took the tour that took us to Roussillion, Gordes, Les Baux de Provence and the Pont du Gard. As usual with these types of trips, there is never enough time at any one place. But, the great advantage is that one gets to see many places without trying to navigate back roads by yourself. We were able to see these 3 amazing villages and spectacular bridge in the space of one afternoon. These places are located to the east, south and west of Avignon but we did not feel that we were in the vehicle very long between stops and the tour was well paced. Our tour guide was fabulous as she identified a number of points of interest along our journey. Pick up and drop off were at locations close and convenient to our hotel. We certainly felt it was a good investment of our time. We also felt that the cost was very reasonable considering what it would have cost to rent a car for a day plus the added cost of petrol and mileage charges (let alone the driving and navigating). If you are interested in seeing a number of locations in a short period of time, we would highly recommend this tour.

Tarragona and Sitges Small Group Day Trip from Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
The tour started on time and exactly where we told to meet, which in a new/strange city is extremely important. There were only 4 of us on this particular trip, which for us was great. Our tour leader was fabulous. She obviously enjoys her work and was very helpful in providing us with tips for things to do/see in both Tarragona and Sitges. Even though the aqueduct near Tarragona is being repaired, it is still a spectacular site and well worth the visit. Tarragona is a beautiful city with a rich history and much to see. It was unfortunate that we couldn't spend more time there, but was great for the limited time that we did have. Sitges is also a very beautiful city and our guide dirceted us to both the old part of town as well as some good local restaurants. While we were in Sitges, there was a festival celebrating the harvest that was going on while we were there. Our guide spoke to some of the local people and was able to give us details of what the celebration was all about, which added to the experience and understanding of local traditions. She did not rush us at all through the day and was willing to stay on even longer than the tour was scheduled. While the tour was great, our tour guide made it a more memorable experience. She went way out her way to answer questions and provide information about what we saw as well as suggestions for things to do/see in Barcelona. This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Barcelona. I would highly recommend this tour and your company to others.
