What You Can Expect
really fun...and long day! I wish we had more time to swim at Pont Du Gard. The tour guide gives a little history on each place and basically just lets you roam around for a while. Nice!
One of our best trips.
The fascinating village of Les Baux perched on a steep mountain side was a highlight, fully supported by the wine and olive oil producers we visited.
In the afternoon, the Roman and mediaeval remains of Nimes were well worth visiting, though I found the Arena a bit underwhelming. The well-preserved mediaval town of Uzès was fascinating to explore. A pity the Pont du Gard was right at the end, when we we were somewhat weary - but it was nevertheless a real highlight.
We thought the tour was quite good. The one improvement that could be made, is to have the stops guided by the driver. We had Carole who was incredibly knowledgable. She gave us lots of background information while driving but it would have been better while actually touring the sites.
This was a very good tour of the top sites in the area, the aqueduct was breathtaking. And the time atLes Bauxite, Nimes, and Uzes was about right. However, two complaints about the tour guide: her focus on two passengers in the front of the van answering there many questions off- line versus the group in the van and her apparent unawareness of the need for nature breaks on a very hot day when water consumption is needed. I found my own stops of necessity.
A nice trip, but I'd suggest to make it different. I think it should start by visiting Nimes and Uzes Nimes is one of the most charming cities I've ever been to, and to finish in the olive and wine tasting. The tasting was good, but at 9 o clock in the morning, it was a little bit weird
Tour was full so they put me on two half day tours which was disappointing. Morning was good, afternoon was ok.
