Thoroughly enjoyed this tour to Nimes,Uves and Pont du Gard. Our guide who was very good and very knowledgable picked us up at our hotel and provided information about the countryside as well as the sites. Travelled in a van for 8 but only 4 of us that trip,very comfortable.
The tour was brought forward 1/2 hour on account of the short November afternoon.This was a good move- it meant we were just in time to see the Pont du Gard from both sides of the river before the light faded.

Excellent tour, guide was great, and did a brilliant job, particularly considering she had to drive the mini bus as well as be a tour guide. Very knowledgeable and professional. Enjoyed the entire trip, the Amphitheatre at Nimes, The Maison Carree temple, the walk around the charming town of Uzes, but the highlight of the tour for me was the aqueduct Pont Du Gard at the end of the trip, awesome! Would thoroughly recommend this trip.

The tour was incredible. The roman arena in nimes is in very good condition. You could imagine all the things that happened there. Then we wento to Uzes a very charming town and the last stop was Point du Gard which was beautiful and serene. Julien was a very good guide. Don't miss it !!

At the suggestion of our guide, our tour began half an hour earlier than was previously advertised which turned out to be to our advantage as it enabled us to see all the sites in the daylight. It turned out that we were the only ones on the tour which was wonderful as we were able to decide how long we wanted to stay at each site. Our guide, Sophia, was very knowledgable and spoke excellent English

We (a married couple and a female friend, all about 65), did this tour in late May 2013.
I recommend this tour highly. The guide, Veronica? was excellent!
It is hard to believe that some of the sites we saw today are over 2000 years old. The Roman amphitheatre at Nimes is the best preserved Roman amphitheatre in the world, where they shot the movie Gladiator. The weekend just gone was a long weekend and they had their version of the running of the bulls. Then we saw the most impressive building, the Maison Carree, a Roman temple, a huge rectangular building with columns at the front. Then we went on to the pleasant historic town of Uzes, where we had time for a short stroll. The best was to come, the aqueduct the Pont Du Gard. This is an amazing arched structure stretching over the river Gardon. One of the wonders of the ancient world, it was built in 1st century A.D. and is still in good condition.

Marion was a great guide. The amphitheater in Nimes was built a few decades after Rome's and seemed a bit of an afterthought if you've been through the later. The Pont du Gard Roman bridge, though, was stunning, especially in the late afternoon sun, situated over a beautifully blue river in acres of park with the towers of a medieval town in the distance.

It's a short but wonderful trip. Anne, our guide, speaks fluent English and knows everything in Provence region. Just onething no one can control or even to predict----local weather. We were lucky since after a light rain in the morning, the sun shine was back that light up the afternoon tour.

The tour was fantastic. It was at times a little fast paced particularly at the Ampitheatre in Nimes however this was needed to be at Pont du Gard at sunset which was magical. Our guide was easygoing and very helpful with any question we asked. We loved it!

My wife and i enjoyed this trip very much. The tour guide Elizabeth was wonderful and we got to see some very interesting and awesome Roman sites. Unfortunately due to roadworks detours and heavy traffic the Pont du Gard site was a bit rushed but our guide extended the trip duration into the evening which was appreciated by all.

What a show stopper - the Roman cleverness at overcoming adversity is again on spectacular show. This is an excellent trip for those who are attached to special historic sites. Thoroughly recommended and good value for money.

I loved this tour.Our guide Virginia was the sweetest lass and so very very well informed as she is also a local girl.She has a divine accent as well.You are left pretty much to do your own thing at each location,not guided as such,but that suited us as we like to take lots of photos.You should be failrly active as there are a lot of steps involved and a few long and sometimes steep walks.Good value for money.Not for the elderly.
