Overall very nice tour with lots to see. The only comment is a choice of timing: we arrived very early to Les Baux village - all shops and restaurants were still closed and starting to open; and then we arrived to Avignon around 13:00, so some of restaurants were going to close for a day-rest break in an hour or so and only touristy bistros were opened (not what I enjoy).. For wine tastes can differ, so I will not say enything here. But otherwise it was a very interesting journey if you like historical places and a feel of Provance. I am glad I went and would recommend.

J.B. was fantastic. He was informative, engaging, and thorough in his tour. The winery tour was great - getting to see a smaller operation and learn about its roots made us feel like we were getting to see a "behind-the-scenes" view of this region of France. The same can be said for our Oyster stop. We would recommend this tour to anyone visiting this area.

We had a fantastic day exploring the best sites/towns in Provence with an equally fantastic tour guide. Sylvia was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting to see the highlights of this region.

Thoroughly enjoyable view of very unique countryside. Exactly as expected; pleasant people, pleasant, informative guide. Great insight into the culture and history of the Camargue. Nice stops for photos.

Wonderful, moreover the guide is very professional and does not lack humor
