What You Can Expect

Saint Remy, Les Baux and Pont du Gard Small Group Day Trip

Pont du Gard, France

Your 5-hour tour of Provence’s stone monuments and historic towns begins with morning or afternoon pickup by minivan from your Avignon hotel. Enjoy picturesque views of the Provençal countryside as you arrive at your first stop, Saint-Rémy-De-Provence, to see ‘Les Antiques,’ a funeral monument and triumphal arch from the time of Augustus. 

Next, head south to the Les Baux de Provence – a fortified medieval village perched in Alpilles mountain range. Meander through the narrow stone streets of the historic center, viewing the town's many original 16th-century houses and main attractions such as the Museum of Santons, the Hôtel des Porcelets and St Vincent Church. Afterward, travel to your final stop, the UNESCO-listed Pont du Gard. Considered an ancient work of art, this three-tiered construction is the highest of all elevated Roman aqueducts. View the perfectly preserved masterpiece of ancient engineering that once supplied water to the town of Nîmes. 

Your tour ends with return to your hotel in Avignon.

The day was perfect.... The drive was delightful, our guide was knowledgable, friendly, and engaging. His obvious love of the country and the art of Van Gogh, made the trip that much more meaningful.

We had a wonderful half day tour of Pont du Gard, Les Baux and the Saint Remy area in April 2014. We were picked up by our friendly tour guide, Marie in the morning and made our way to Pont du Gard. After being given time to walk around and take in the views, she drove us to Les Baux and we had time to walk around and shop and have a quick lunch. Les Baux is a 'must-see.' Then we toured the area surrounding Saint Remy which includes ancient ruins (Glanum).

Marie was a great guide, full of facts about the area. We found out that other people on the tour had signed up for the whole day, which goes on to the Luberon area, but this half day tour was perfect for us.

I like the fact that we received a lot of communication from Viator prior to the trip confirming that our tour was coming up and reminded us to print out our vouchers. Highly organized and efficient. I absolutely recommend it!

This tour is awesome! From the ancient town near Van Gogh's hospital, to the quaint and ancient town of Les Baux and inspiring Pont du Gard - it made for a relaxing and informative trip through the countryside.

We had a great time. Melanie's driving was excellent. Her knowledge of the region was very good. She was friendly and funny. The countryside was very pretty. We only wish we could have had a longer time maybe 10 minutes extra in the Pont du Gard and in Les Baux. Those sites are very touristy and since the streets in Les Baux are so narrow, it took time to get to the castle. By the time we made it there, we felt that we would not have had enough time to visit it. So we turned back.

Excellent tour

The guide is such a nice girl however her instruction didn't give out too clearly. One of the place meant to spend 5, 10 mins for a photo then some people walked further down away to Saint Remy town. We waited there for 40 mins and had to skip the next place then back to Avignon.

Well planned trip with excellent guide. Small group of 9 of us. I would have liked more time at the Pont du Gard - it was rather rushed. Pick up and drop off at hotel a bonus.
