What You Can Expect

Provence in One Day Small Group Day Trip from Avignon

See the beautiful villages in Provence on your day tour

Your 10-hour tour of Provence begins with morning pickup from your Avignon hotel. Meet your guide and small group, then take a seat in the minivan for a scenic ride through the Provençal countryside. 

You'll stop first at the amazing Pont du Gard, constructed in the 1st century AD. Considered an ancient work of art, this UNESCO-listed construction is the highest of all elevated Roman aqueducts. Admire the preserved three-tiered structure that spans the mighty Gardon River. Then continue south to Les Baux de Provence – a fortified medieval village carved straight from the limestone-rich earth. Take some time to explore, have lunch (own expense) and snap photos of the Luberon plains. 

Next, travel to Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, to see ‘Les Antiques,’ a funeral monument and triumphal arch. Perched within view of Saint-Paul-de-Mausole asylum where Van Gogh was institutionalized, this site became a natural subject of his. 

The final leg of your tour heads to Luberon, the setting of Peter Mayle’s A Year in Provence, and to the stunning hilltop villages of Gordes and Roussillon. Admire the medieval architecture and the natural wonders that surround these distinctive towns. 

On the return trip, stop at the Lavender Museum in Coustellet to learn more about the tradition and cultivation of lavender farming in Provence and discover the many versatile products that are infused with lavender flowers. Your tour ends with drop-off at your Avignon hotel in the evening.

There are a lot of tours from Avignon to the Provence region and it is hard to decide which combination of places to visit so they don't overlap with others. I found this to be a very good way to highlight many places in a single day. It was just enough time in each location so I didn't feel as if our time was wasted. The small van of 6 people was ideal and our guide Emilie was terrific. She was also the driver as well as the guide and yet she always was enthusiastic and interesting in her remarks, despite the hot day and extensive driving. There are a lot of scenic opportunities on this trip, so be sure to bring a good camera!

we had an excellent day and saw many beautiful towns that truly reflect what Provence is. The guide/driver Phillipe Hendricks is superb. Very interesting chap that makes the long day very exciting. Highly recommended for those who wants to experience what Provence can offer.

Really enjoyed our day with Maude. She was a great guide and knew so much about the area. It was nice to leave the driving and parking! into the several villages we visited to someone else! This way we could just focus on discovering. The only downside is that there was very little time in Gordes for lunch 45 minutes is not long enough and we probably would have preferred to skip Les Baux de Provence as it is very touristic.

This was a fantastic tour! Emilie was a wonderful tour guide! She was extremely knowledgeable and was so nice! All sites were awesome and I loved the village visits - Les Baux, Gordes, and Roussillon. Top rate day. I want to go back to Provence! We picked a perfect tour.
