our guide, Florence, made the tour an unforgettable experience. She explained all issues with a deep knowledge and in an interesting way. she had an excellent English. She was very attentive to our questions and wishes. the tour was well organized, has good balance between the the visiting time and the ride to them. the car was comfortable and suited the number of passengers.

Our tour guide Florence was very informative and knowledgeable about the sites we visited. She was excellent. The sites were also good, you’ll get to see a lot outside of Marseille that are maybe hard to get to without a car. The only downside was our tour was on a rainy day so we couldn’t tour the site where we did the wine tasting.

We think the tour is a great way to visit not only several picturesque and unique villages but also magnificent Pont du Gard in one day. Our tour guide, Frederic (spelling?), was very knowledgeable and passionate about his work, accommodating and kind. We don't think we'd have enjoyed it as much if it weren't for Frederic.

A great, and long, day around Provence. The highlights are well selected and the guide was fantastic.

The driver was very nice , he halped us în everything
