I would fully recommend this tour to anyone thinking about taking it. My sister and I enjoyed learning about the area from our very knowledgeable,enthusiastic,and friendly guide Nicolas. The day was spent with laughter and fun. If I had to I couldnt pick a favorite stop. Each place had its own special charm.
This was our tour:
10.5-hour tour of Provence from Avignon Visit the 1st-century Roman town of Orange with your guide Admire top attractions such as the Triumphal Arch and the Roman amphitheater Drive through the Châteauneuf-du-Pape region and visit the medieval village of Les Baux de Provence Sample local wines during a tasting session Marvel at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Pont du Gard, an ancient Roman aqueduct Tour includes round-trip travel from your accommodation in Avignon.
This tour gave me a great feel for the Provence. It was a perfect small group and although we didn't all know each other, we had a great time together. The driver and tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the area and all it has to offer. It was a day I'll never forget and it enticed me to rent a car the following day to spend some more time in some of the neighboring small villages.
Excellent tour - a long day but not too much walking. The stops offered a variety of historical periods and geographical differences. Melanie was a great guide her English was excellent and she was very knowledgeable about the history and geography of the area. There was sufficient time at each stop for taking photos and doing a bit of shopping. There isnt much time to enjoy a restaurant meal, so take some snacks along or grab some takeout food enroute.
This tour was well worth the time and expense. Our guide, Remy was both knowledgeable and delightful. Pont du Gard and the hill towns would have been hard to get to by public transportation. Even if you have a rental car, knowing the proper turnoffs would have been challenging if you are not familiar with the areas.
We loved this tour. Our guide drove us to so many places that we would never have known about, and places that we wanted to see but never would have found if we had tried to drive ourselves. This was our first tour. It was such a good experience that we have signed up for several more tours in Spain
What a fabulous day! Caroline was an excellent guide and shared a lot of information with us during this busy day. There were quite a few stops and, with the exception of Pont du Gard, we had enough time to see everything. I could have used 15 more minutes at Pont du Gard, but did have time to climb to the top of the overlook for an amazing view. This was a great way to get a good feel for the variety in Provence in just one day.
Carolyn was awesome. Can't say enough great things about her as our guide. She is a knowledgeable, friendly and gracious. The day was long yet packed with beautiful, interesting and historical sites from the start until the end.
Fantastic! Remy was great and very knowledgeable. The wine tasting was fantastic! We never would have been able to see all these places on our own, let alone learn the cool stuff about it.I loved seeing the lavender fields and learning about Van Gogh. Thank you!
This was a really good tour. The guide Julia was extremely helpful.
My husband and I enjoyed this trip immensely. Our guide, Anna, was very knowledgeable and personable. Although this trip packs in a lot, it was everything we wanted to see and I never felt rushed. We had sufficient time at each stop. There really is nothing I would leave out. Had my husband and I tried to do this on our own, we never would have found all these places. Thank you, Viator! We will book with you again. - Joy Z.
The tour was great. We really enjoyed. Though it was a long day, our tour guide was very informative, friendly and accommodating. Given the short period of time we have, it was a great way to see Provence without having to drive ourselves.
julian was our guide and he was great. never could have seen as much without this tour. highly recommend tour
When in Provence you have to do Le Grand Tour! It's a lot of travelling in the bus which wasn't good for my arthritic hip and knee but these are places that have to be seen! Loved the tour, and tour guide Remi was very patient and very knowledgeable. Les Baux de Provence, Roussillion and Gordes were lovely but the old Roman amphitheatre in Oange and the Pont du Gard were particularly impressive
Marc was a great tour guide, very knowledgeable about wines in particular.
It was my first time to travel to the south of France. I have heard so much about the charm, beauty and magic of Provence and southern France. I went into this trip with lots of fantasies and images about this place. Needless to say, the Reality far exceeded my fantasies. From the moment our tour guide picked me up to the moment he dropped me off, the whole day was just mesmerizing. The town of Orange was a good starting point. I learned so much about wine from our visit to Chateauneuf du Pape, the hilltop villages were heartachingly beautiful and the Pont du Gard...I am lost for words. I was stunned into silence at my first sighting of it. Julienne our driver/tour guide was just perfect. His nice, friendly, easy going personality were a big positive factor for the tour. He was very informative and had lots of knowledge about the places and the whole region. We talked about wines, grapes, palaces, romans, rivers, mountains, french food, french people and culture, lavender, van gogh etc...All in all it was defintely a grand tour and I loved it and I was very happy that I booked it.
This is a reasonably comprehensive tour to a number of locations. It is a long day but if you have limited time is it an excellent tour. The wine tasting class was excellent and I am sure everyone attending left knowing a lot more about wine and how to tell a quality wine than they previously did. I wish I had taken a map so I could have tracked our travel as we were doing it.
This is a great tour of you want to take in winery, Roman ampitheatre and beautiful villages of Provence, all in one day. A long day, but very rewarding. Mark was an excellent tour guide.
We had the good luck to have Phillippe Hendricks to be our tour guide. He knew the area well and provided historical information beyond our expectations. The area is beautiful and the Roman ruins were beyond our expectations.
Because we had only 3 days in Avignon, we signed up for this tour. I had wanted to see all these places and had originally planned to rent a car and drive to them. I am very glad we took the tour instead. We could never have found, much less driven to, all these places by ourselves. Especially for this price. They are all beautiful. My friend said she could have done with one less, but which one? They were all amazing places I was so glad to see. The partner group, Provence tours arranged the tours by language, and our guide Violette was superbly informative and friendly while keeping us on track for the day. We had a nice Mercedes 8 passenger van that was a comfortable ride with air conditioning. Bring snacks and water. No time allowed for a sit down meal. We stopped for sandwiches at one point. It was a 12 hour day, but I would do it again.
Great! The time is just nice for all the destinations listed. Emmanuel is very informative too. Thank you so much!!
We skipped Notre Dame since this was so easy to access and before this trip, we had already being there twice. Cassis is a very lovely village. I would strongly recommend to go this place. The boat ride to Calanques was fabulous experience. This is the high light of this tour.
