Quittez Aix-en-Provence et partez vers le nord jusqu'à la ville d'Arles, classée au patrimoine mondial de l'UNESCO, pour une visite autonome d'une demi-journée avec le passeport à Arles ! Après vous avoir conduit jusqu'à la ville en minibus, le chauffeur vous laissera environ quatre heures pour explorer la ville à votre guise, en bénéficiant d'une entrée gratuite aux principales attractions d'Arles. Découvrez quantité de ruines romaines à l'amphithéâtre d'Arles, aux Cryptoportiques et aux thermes de Constantin ; émerveillez-vous devant l'art roman à l'intérieur de l'église St-Trophime, et visitez deux musées d'Arles, si vous le désirez !
Gregoire was terrific! We lucked out, there were only 2 of us in the car. He regaled us with lots of information of historical interest, enthusiasm for the area and for Arles, gave us great tips on things to see. His driving was excellent, but most of all, he was a personable and delightful individual. Glad we met him!
This proved a very convenient way to do a quick tour of the historic sites of Arles. 4.5 hours seems a short time, but if you have done your research beforehand and determined what you want to see and where these sites are located, it can be achieved comfortably. However, if you want to enjoy the main museum the time is probably too little. This museum is quite a distance from the drop-off and pick-up spot which is close to the centre of the old town. It also has a huge amount of material inside for viewing. To give the museum a worthwhile visit you need to miss several of the other sites. Our main target was to see the historical sites so the tour was great for us.
Very pleasant afternoon. The driver told us interesting things without talking too much. Price appeared a bit high but seems to be the going rate for a half day tour here in Aix. It would have been good to know the tour would not return till 7.30, rather than simply that it was leaving at 1.30. That gave us four hours in Arles which was just enough. We were worried it would be returning by 5.30 and there was no response to an email enquiry. If you take the tour please make sure you call Tylene 24 hours before to confirm. No-shows are unfair on the others who may be kept waiting.
Great experience! I was dropped off in Arles to tour on my own. If you're looking for a ride to Arles, it's perfect. This did not come with a guide in Arles but you were given 4hrs to view as much as you could and the guide picked you back up at the tourist office. Great deal!
Renaud was a wonderful driver and guide, going out of his way to point out the best features of Arles prior to taking us to our drop off point. He was prompt, courteous, and kind. An amazing afternoon in Arles.
Renault was our tour guide. Very nice and charming. Provided a brief overview, but our group found ourselves a little lost navigating Arles on our own.On Monday the Contemporary Museum is closed, so that was somewhat dissapointing. Overall, nice to see where Van Gogh painted many of his famous works.
