Full description
On this 5-hour tour from Avignon you’ll see some of the most important stone monuments in Provence that date back to the Roman period. First on the itinerary is the Pont du Gard, one of best-preserved aqueducts of the Roman Empire. It was built by the Romans in the 1st century to supply the city of Nimes with water. Visit Les Baux de Provence, a picturesque medieval village that sits on a rocky spur in the Alpilles Mountains, surrounded by olive groves that produce a well-known olive oil. Admire the well-preserved Roman monument for a photo stop at the Antiques of St Remy de Provence. See sites at the northern edge of the Alpilles that inspired van Gogh’s paintings, including his iconic Starry Night.

We joined for the second half of the day’s excursion and it was just great! The air conditioned van made it so much more enjoyable to see all that we were passing by, and the car rides were just as beautiful as the site visits. Jeremy did not spend too much time providing history lessons which was nice, he gave the perfect amount of context to each visit we made.

Hubby and I enjoyed our 4 hour trip with Laure, a very personable driver. The trip was 1 hour shorter than advertised, and the stop at Les Baux would have benefited from the extra hour. I was looking forward to seeing the castle as it is described as outstanding in several travel books. But there was no time Nonetheless, Laure drove us to all the sites and provided good background info.

Not too bad

The tour is a good choice. The guide and the company have rich experience in the field. The landscape in Provence is very good, of course. I think the only problem is the time. In the introduction it is said that the tour wil last 5h. However, when we go back to Avignon, it is only 18:20, and 40 minutes are lost. The guide does not give us enough time at Les Baux and Pont de Gard, and it seems that she just want to finish the tour as quickly as possible.
