Discover Provence’s Roman history, stunning countryside, and art heritage on this half-day tour from Arles. Explore the medieval village of Les Baux de Provence, walk in the footsteps of Van Gogh in Saint Rémy de Provence, and admire the Roman Aqueduct of Pont du Gard, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
  • 4.5-hour tour of Pont du Gard, Les Baux de Provence, and Saint Rémy de Provence from Arles

  • Explore the medieval hilltop village of Les Baux de Provence
  • Follow in the footsteps of Van Gogh in Saint Rémy de Provence

Meet your guide and small group of up to 15 people in central Arles in time for an 8.30am departure. Traveling aboard an air-conditioned minivan, soak up the scenery on the around 45-minute journey to the first stop – the UNESCO-listed Pont du Gard, a remarkably preserved Roman aqueduct dating back to the 1st century AD.

Continue to the hilltop village of Les Baux de Provence and follow your guide on a walking tour of the historic center, where highlights include the Museum of Santons, the 16th-century Hôtel des Porcelets, and the Romanesque style St Vincent Church.

Finally, visit Saint Rémy de Provence to admire more Roman ruins – the ‘Antiques’, which include an ancient mausoleum and Triumphal Arch. As you explore the impressive ruins, hear how the monuments were painted by Saint Rémy’s most famous former resident – Van Gogh.

On return to Arles, your tour ends back at the departure point around 1pm.

Wonderful guide but not as advertised!

Our guide was delightful and very informative from what we could understand. However, we booked an English tour and all others in the group spoke French. The guide therefore had to repeat everything in English and French. The drawback was that most questions were asked and answered in French and only when I asked to repeat in English did we get that feedback & information. Additionally, in part, the tour was described as "...Continue to the hilltop village of Les Baux de Provence and follow your guide on a walking tour of the historic center..." We were actually dropped off at the base of Les Baux de Provence with a brief narrative before the guide left us there on our own. No problem being on our own but it was not as billed to "follow your guide on a ...tour" Based on the cost for a less than advertised tour I'm not sure I can refer anyone to Viator.

Not a ton of time for Pont du Gard but Baux the absolute treat!

We did the half day tour, our only complaint is we wished we had a half hour more at Pont du Gard and skipped the roman monument at St Remy (Glanum) although welcomed the break from the van. We weren't sure what Baux would be like but it was amazing and was small enough that the hour to explore we made it up to the top of the village, had a coffee at a cafe and did a bit of shopping. The guide was friendly and natural in their commentary. For half the ride to Pont du Gard, the mircrophone wasn't on however, so some found it hard to hear. I still recommend this tour but if you're heart is set on a long stay at Pont du Gard, don't pick this one.

Nice way to see these unique treasures. It would be impossible to see all in one day with public transport. Guide was very knowledgeable and pace was good.
