Nimes, Uzes & Pont du Gard Small Group Half-Day Tour from Avignon
This was a very good, casual tour to see the highlights of the three locations. It was a bit of a drive between the stops, but our guide entertained us with information how the weather and soil combine to produce such fine grapes and wine. Instead of only showing the sites, we learned the history and the significance of the sites.

Nimes, Uzes & Pont du Gard Small Group Half-Day Tour from Avignon
Our trip was wonderful and memorable thanks to Anne, she drove, guided and showed us all main tourist attractions in Nimes and Uzes. She’s also a good photographer who helped to shoot many beautiful photos. I highly recommend her for your tours. Thanks again Anne!

Nimes, Uzes & Pont du Gard Small Group Half-Day Tour from Avignon
Ann knew the best photo spots and she was glad to take some of us with noteworthy backgrounds like the Pont du Gard or the coliseum in Nîmes. There was a lot to see in a long half day but for us it was time we’ll spent. You don’t have a lot of time in any one spot. We learned a lot even though we’d done preliminary reading. Helps that we had a beautiful sunny day.

GREAT HALF DAY TOUR TO NIMES, UZES AND COUNTRYSIDE

Nimes, Uzes & Pont du Gard Small Group Half-Day Tour from Avignon
This tour was very good for seeing a little of Nimes, Uzes and the Pont du Gard and was the only way we could have done it in the time.. We would have liked more time to explore Nimes ideally. The minivan was very clean and comfortable and the guide extremely knowledgeable - it was like a university education in the area's history! Guillaime was very personable and happy to answer all sorts of questions. We enjoyed the morning and would recommend the tour.

Pont du Gard was amazing. Ann was a fantastic guide. She was punctual on the pick up, spoke excellent English, knew her history of the sites and was a great driver on the twisty hilly roads.

Nimes, Uzes & Pont du Gard Small Group Half-Day Tour from Avignon
Guillaume was our guide and driver and was extremely knowledgeable about French history and kept us informed and amused throughout the trip. Good amount of times at the Pont du Gard, but could have done with more time in Nimes to see more of the arena. Uzes was also interesting and gave us taste of the area.

Nimes, Uzes & Pont du Gard Small Group Half-Day Tour from Avignon
Our tour guide Gordana was lovely and full of knowledge. We had a wonderful day learning about Provence and Gard history. The car was comfortable. Gordana went out of her way to accomodate our needs and make our trip as enjoyable as possible. This is a wonderful half-day trip from Avignon with adequate time to see the sites and towns. We would highly recommend this day trip. Good value for money as well!

Nimes, Uzes & Pont du Gard Small Group Half-Day Tour from Avignon
Gordana was an extremely knowledgeable, articulate and accommodating guide. The tour was well paced and we were able to see many highlights of the region without feeling rushed or that we were skipping anything. This tour is highly recommended, especially if you have a limited amount of time to spend in Provence.

Nimes, Uzes & Pont du Gard Small Group Half-Day Tour from Avignon
Gordano was an excellent and friendly guide who provided lots of great information. She gave us time for pictures, and made special stops to allow us to do so. Six of us in her comfortable van, water bottles provided which was a nice touch. Definitely recommend this tour with Gordano (sp?).

Nimes, Uzes & Pont du Gard Small Group Half-Day Tour from Avignon
Gordana (sp??) was lovely! Very upbeat, cheerful with incredible knowledge of the area. She was very professional and did a great job of balancing the group. I would highly recommend this tour as it is a bit off the beaten path but some amazing sites that are not overcrowded during the high season.
