What You Can Expect

Provence Le Grand Tour

Visit the pretty village of Gordes on your tour in Provence

The first stop on your Grand tour of Provence is Orange, founded by the Romans in the 1st century BC. The Triumphal Arch is one of the most remarkable monuments of its kind in France, decorated with friezes commemorating Julius Caesar's victories over the Gauls in 49BC. You will also visit the Antic theater, built during the time of August Caesar.

Then enjoy a scenic drive and wine tasting in the vineyards around Chateauneuf du Pape, where you will learn about grape varieties, aging cellars and wine tasting.

Your Grand Tour continues to the Pont du Gard, the best preserved Roman aqueduct. You'll also visit Les Baux de Provence, a picturesque medieval village in the Alpilles mountains, and the Luberon region to see the famous villages of Gordes and Roussillon, which rank among the most beautiful villages in France.

Very good tour. Had time to buy lunch but having something at a nice winery would have been fun,
Very comprehensive tour though.

This was a wonderful day - lots of driving in a mini van but we visited wonderful picturesque locations. It was also the first wine tour I've ever done where a sommelier instructed you on how to drink and taste wine properly. The guide was very accommodating and knowledgeable. I do think that it would be advisable to build in an opportunity to eat lunch at one of the many quaint little restaurants in Rousillon rather than trying to grab something on the run. Because we travelled so far, it sometimes felt like we had to dash into a village and then dash back to be on time to board the van. The Pont du Gard was awe inspiring! So glad I saw it. Some time could have been taken away from the visit to the amphitheatre in Orange to allow more time in other locations. The amphitheatre is wonderful but it was a fairly lengthy stop because we followed the audio tape. If the guide did the tour herself, this might expedite things somewhat. Loved this tour however as it took you to places that are difficult to reach on your own and yet are considered some of the most beautiful villages in France.
