Arles, Les Baux and Saint Remy de Provence from Marseille

Arles, France

Next the road leads you to the Baux de Provence, where you will stopover in the Abbey of Montmajour (10th Century) and the Mill of Daudet, where Alphonse Daudet found inspiration to write his famous letters. Enjoy lunch on your own, in the village of Les Baux de Provence.

In the afternoon, you will continue to Saint Remy de Provence, on a beautiful road edged by fields of olive trees.

Fantastic tour! It takes you to many wonderful and exciting places that are not as well known as the coastal towns. To spend time in the area where Van Gogh painted many of his famous paintings, wander through Roman theaters and ruins, walk through castles and enjoy fabulous vistas makes this a very memorable excursion. The guide, Gail, though somewhat inexperienced, made up by being very helpful, enthusiastic and pleasant. I would highly recommend the tour.

Virginia is very good and thoroughly enjoyed. The downside is Provence Tour was bought by another company and the phone number was disconnected. I suggest Viator should provide the update phone number. I wasted two days trying to contact the tour company on the number indicated on the voucher.

Excellent tour; guide very knowledgeable of area. She customized the tour as day went on to meet our needs and requests. Showed us many places 'off the beaten path' that most tourists do not get to see. Would highly recommend this tour for visiting Provence. Absolutely delightful day.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2006

The tour guide was very informative and interesting. Not only did the day pack in all three towns of Provence, we also were on the trail of Van Gogh and saw sites of his paintings. It was thoroughly enjoyable.

4 star rating: Recommended December 2014

After a bit of confusion about the pick up we met our driver and found that we were the only two people on the tour that day. An excellent tour, particularly St Remy and Les Baux and one I would recommend to anyone

The tour was private by luck as no others had signed on. We would rather pay a bit more then have a tour canceled because others are not interested. It took us to areas we would have not seen. Enjoyed the hotel pick up and drop off. Our guide was very knowledgeable.

3 star rating: Worth doing June 2015

Very disappointed that our driver skipped both the Abbey and the Mill. Important sites that we paid to see but we were short of time as two passengers were picked up over and hour out of the way. I thought this was a tour out of Marseille, not Aix-en-Provence!!!!
