The day with Marc in Provence was one of the highlights of our time in France. He was a wonderful guide. I would highly recommend this trip to friends and family.
Our guide was excellent! The trip was well worthwhile. In the future if possible please add a bit more time in St. Remy de Provence. Otherwise, it was great!
An exceptional all-day experience with a terrific guide. It exceeded our expectations. We covered a lot of territory actual and historical. As our good luck would have it, we were the only two people on the tour-which made it private. A great day in Provence!
We were very pleased with the guide and the pace of the trip.
We had a great time! Our guide made the day incredibly fun and special, and it was a great way to see the sights of Provence in a way that was relaxed yet still very organized. I would definitely reommend this trip to anyone who wants to see the sights in Provence without all the hassle of organizing it all themselves!
We had a great trip, interesting mix of things to see and do. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, having lived in Provence all her life. We would definitely recommend the trip to others.
The trip was interesting and extremely intensive. It is a pity that the minibus comes back to Avignon in the middle of the trip, for the traffic there is rather heavy. The advertisement does not explain that it is in fact a modular trip changing passengers in the middle of the day. All in all, however, the trip was highly rewarding. The short visit to the mental hospital where Van Gogh stayed during the last year of his life was especially moving.
We wish there had been less time in Arles and a lit more time in Les Baux. We felt cheated that we only had an hour there. Our guide was very good and took a little extra time at the end to take some ohotos of Avignon from across the river. It was a very nice day.
Wonderful opportunity to see some special places. Orange theater really spectacular. Spending time with videos in galleries behind bought it alive. Loved Le Baux and would have liked more time there. Arles a great place to wander. A bit irritated that commercial arrangements with chocolate factory and wine tasting drove the schedule. Knowledgeable guide.

We (a married couple and a female friend, all about 65), did this tour in late May 2013.
The guide, Anais? was very good. The day started slowly, we went to a winery and we spent far too long there, but that's what you get when you do a tour, they try to meet everyone's interests. This time it wasn't ours. We could have spent more time in Orange, where the amazing Roman theatre is. It is one of 3 in the world, but this one is in the best condition, and is still being used for all kinds of musical events. We did a short walking tour of Arles, which was a very important Roman city, so has an amphitheatre and lots of other Roman sites, mostly ruins. Arles was one place that Van Gogh lived, so part of the tour took us to some of the sites he had painted. I liked that. We also visited a small village Les Baux de Provence, built into cliffs, now only has 22 people living there, but over 1.5 million visitors.
This particular tour was not available however the booking group kindly found two other half day tours that incorporated everything we wanted to see. So much to see outside Avignon, a great place to visit. Highly recommend.
The tour guide was great (forgot her name). Loved the small group of 8 and the pick up at the hotel. Great sites to see - only complaint is that we did not get enough time at each spot. The tour is set up as a morning and afternoon tour. You can buy one or the other or both times. We did the whole day so we came back to Avignon to drop off the morning only people and get the afternoon only people. An afternoon couple was late and we waited half hour for them. The guide did extend the trip which was nice. Seem silly to double back to town but all in all a great day!!! Loved the Roman ruins - some of the best in Europe!!!
