Full description
One of the first stops on your day of discovery is the village of Les Baux de Provence. The narrow streets and the imposing castle ruins date to the Middle Ages – a time of proud lords and troubadours. From the rocky spur you’ll enjoy exceptional scenic views. See the Pont du Gard, a fascinating UNESCO World Heritage site that is the best-preserved part of the Nîmes aqueduct. Designed by architects and engineers during the Roman era, it is considered a technical and artistic masterpiece. You’ll continue on to Avignon, the 14th century City of the Popes. See the medieval walls, the Pont d’Avignon that crosses the Rhone River, and the Popes’ Palace, which is the largest Gothic palace in Europe. (Note that entrance fees are not included.) Next on your itinerary is a visit to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, surrounded by its world-famous vineyards. Wine tasting at one of the numerous cellars is included. Please note that you’ll have free time for lunch on your own during the tour, and that the cost of lunch is not included in the tour price.

Excellent, well worth the time and money. Christopher was an excellent guide and showed some hidden gems we would have otherwise not seen. Wish we spent a bit more time in Bonnieux but this will just make it compulsory for me to return! The south of France had been a pleasant surprise!

Definitely glad we did it the trip took us to great places which would be difficult to get to otherwise since we didn’t have a car. I felt the guide could’ve been a little more knowledgeable and given us some more history when we were driving to the locations but overall we enjoyed our time !

Our guide, Gaelle, was wonderful. Very informative and very personable. The itinerary was great though I would have liked a bit more time in Les Beaux. Walking out to the Esplanade and back took all the designated time (and we don't walk slow). The other stops had sufficient time allowed. Great recommendations for restaurant in Avignon.
