The stone villages of Gordes and Baux de Provence were so beautiful, we couldn't get enough pictures. The Pont du Gard was unbelievably majestic, and my daughter and I were in awe of the genius of the Roman engineers; however, we would have liked a little more time there.

Booked to see Pont du Gard, which had plenty of WOW factor. Skillfully saved for last by our very pleasant female driver and guide. The villages were well worth a look and all very different.

This is a great tour of a truly beautiful part of France. We saw much of the local scenery, even more than the destinations promised. Our guide was very knowledgeable and answered every question we threw at him - antiquities, local customs, culture, agricultural practices, history, architecture, local politics, and even cooking with truffles! This is the best way to see and learn about the region shy of actually living there. Highly recommended.

The scenery was fantastic. The mini-bus arrived on time at our hotel and although there was only the four of us we received the full tour. The young woman driver was a very competent driver and also gave us an excellent commentary. We had ample time at each stop to sightsee and browse. All of us, three adults and an eleven year old boy, thoroughly enjoyed the whole afternoon.

Excellent guide and great places visited. Only problem was it got dark by the time we got to the last village. A shame the start time could not have been brought forward once the clocks had gone back the previous weekend.

We were picked up about 15 minutes late from our hotel for this trip, but it was nice to have a smallish van with just enough people for us to all meet and talk to each other as we travelled. We travelled through lots of delightful villages as our tour guide chatted to us, and stopped at the Pont du Gard, Les Baux des Provence and Gordes. We had just the right amount of time at the Pont du Gard and Gordes but nowhere near enough time at Les Baux des Provence, it is such a gorgeous village with beautiful shops but also a fort at the top of the hill which we never even had time to see. I would recommend more time in this village, half an hour simply is not enough. Apart from that, it was well worth the time doing this tour, we fitted a lot of sightseeing into a short amount of time.

We have a lovely afternoon i this tour...the guide is a littlte bit late..but she is responsible for everything in the tour, and we saw a lot of great town and scenery...but it seemed every location is just too little time to explore...that is the downside if you want to join a tour..overall..it;s lovely and worth it

If you only have a short time this half day tour is worthwhile to do to experience a small part of Provence. It is a beautiful area, the historic towns embedded on the top of a hill and of course The Pont Du Gard. Even though we have seen it before you can never get enough of this magnificent site.

Recommended! Really glad we included the Rousillon option. The guide was friendly, van was spacious and clean. I wish I knew b4 going: the tour guide gives a quick summary about the destination and drops u off at the destination for 30-40 mins to wander on your own and 30-40 mins can be a little rushed

This tour was great! Our guide, Aurelie, was fantastic. She had great English and was very friendly and open to questions. The trip took us to some fantastic locations that I don't think you would necessarily see on your own and allowed us to have a good look at the countryside whilst travelling. I think this tour would be even better in Lavender/sunflower time (August I think?) as we did pass some fields that would have been spectacular if out in bloom. All in all, this tour was a great day out and I would highly recommend to anyone. Thanks again to Aurelie for doing such a wonderful job.

The size of the group was perfect, the guide lovely. The Pont du Gard was particularly great to see but we covered a lot Ian half day.

Our driver/guide was fabulous, we saw a fair bit of the Provence region that we wouldn't have otherwise seen had we not done the tour or hired a car. I would recommend the tour to others, however think it's over priced.

Beautiful scenaries, but not enough time in each sightseeing spot, 45min max each. Suggested to allow more time for each spot.
