We had a great time learning about the Roman ruins in Provence. Since we were traveling by train, it was nice to see a little bit of the towns outside of our base in Avignon. Our guide was from the area and he was very adaptable to changing situations, even when there was a miscommunication on the meeting point the app gave us. We had a great day in the end!

Our guide Thierry was delightful, helpful and informative. He adapted the tour as required and guided rather than dictated us to make the best use of the available time.

Excellent tour! Our guide Julien was experienced and took the time to explain details to us along the way. We recommend this excursion to everyone!

Our guide knew a lot and was able to explain in several languages. You have just enough time to get an impression of the places visited.

Wonderful friendly guide with lots of interesting facts! Small group and a very comfortable journey!
