Meet your private guide in central Arles in time for a 9am or 2pm departure (depending on option selected). Traveling by private vehicle, soak up the scenery on the around 30-minute journey to Baux de Provence, a picturesque village perched on a hilltop at 803 feet (245 meters).

Follow your guide on a walking tour of the historic center, where highlights include the Museum of Santons, the 16th-century Hôtel des Porcelets, and the Romanesque style St Vincent Church. Then, enjoy free time to browse the shops, take in the views, or view the audiovisual show (ticket not included) in the famous Carrières de Lumière (Quarry of Light).

Continue to Saint Rémy de Provence to admire the ‘Antiques’, a series of impressive Roman ruins which include an ancient mausoleum and Triumphal Arch. Hear how the monuments were painted by Saint Rémy’s most famous former resident – Van Gogh – and drive past the Saint-Paul de Mausole, the mental hospital where he stayed for over a year. You’ll also have chance to see several other sites immortalized in Van Gogh’s paintings.

On return to Arles, your tour ends back at the departure point around 1.30pm or 6pm.

We were on a cruise on the Rone river when we took this tour. As promised, the guide picked us up by the pier which was very convenient considering that it was a rainy day. When we arrived to Les Baux-de-Provence, the rain got a bit heavier and our guide suggested to beat the rain by visiting the Carrières de Lumières art center. She quickly bought group tickets for us and we did not have to stay in line. That was a very interesting experience that we did not expect. By the time we left the art center, it cleared up and we had a good but short walk in the village. We did not have the time to see the castle though. We also did not get to see the St Paul's Monastry/clinic simply by being 5-7 minutes late which was totally unexpected. It looked like their business hours changed and our guide did not know this. We arrived at 4:05-4:07 pm. They were still open until 4:30 pm but the doors were closed at 4:00 pm and we were totally ignored. I wish this part of the tour was better planned if we had to come all the way here. I also wish the guide would offer more historical information about the places we visited. It would be very appreciated if the guide was able to walk with us and tell us all about what we saw. This is what we would want.
