Your full-day tour of picturesque Provence begins at a centrally located meeting point. Hop in the comfortable minivan and enjoy the scenic ride to nearby Arles, a stunning riverside town known to many as the landscape for Van Gogh’s famous paintings 'La maison jaune,' 'Le café de nuit,' and 'Le jardin de l'hotel Dieu.

Continue on to Saint-Rémy-de-Provence and stop at Saint-Paul de Mausole to see some sites painted by Van Gogh (entrance fee not included).

Next, travel south through rolling vineyards to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, a lovely village in the Rhône Valley surrounded by prestigious wine estates. Stop in one of the wineries to taste fine wine and tour the wine cellars, then pop into the estate shop to purchase some wine and souvenirs to take home. 

Your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel in Avignon.

Our guide Giam was a nice person. However, the tour company changed their itinerary without any notice. When I booked this tour, I was supposed to visit Orange too, but this part of tour was left out. That was very disappointing. If the company informed me of this change, I definitely cancelled it and had taken other tour.

Our driver/guide, Julian was an excellent driver and very informative throughout the tour providing us with a wealth of knowledge about the history and culture of the region. He had a pleasant manner and ensured that we had ample opportunities to visit all sights. This was a very pleasant, enjoyable and informative tour.

The places visited were great but the guide was extremely rude. We got more information from brochures and signage than from the guide. Unfortunately, we were assigned this guide for 2 tours and were stuck with her for 2 days. She was equally rude and discourteous on the other day.

Love the day trip. Packed with information about the places, sights and sound. And was totally amazed by Carrieres de Lumieres. It was a marvellous experience and best to see it for yourselves instead of reading it in a review. A well spent day.

Even though it rained heavily this tour still worked out. The guide was knowledgeable and interested in his clients. His commentary as a result reflected the client's interest. Less time Orange and more in Arles would be better. The wine tasting was good. Learnt a lot about French wines. Thanks Remy for a good day!

The trip covered alot of ground, which was great. But, our group was a half hour late and I felt like we could've covered the same sites by ourselves. The group was not cohesive, that could've made a difference, but you never really know the demographic of the rest of the group until the day of. The light show at the quarry was not of interest to us and it seemed as if the rest of the group was in agreement. But, nevertheless we had a scheduled 45 minute stop there. Our guide was very nice and knowledgeable. The personalities in the group were a lot to manage and he did the best job he could. All in all, because we had a rental car on the trip, we would most likely opt to do these trips on our own if we were to do it all over again.

Wonderful tour! Our guide, Remi, was so sweet and funny, and made the trip delightful for everyone. Our tour guide really made the trip special. His knowledge of the area was very apparent and very appreciated. Was considerate of our needs, and different desires on the trip. Very worthwhile.

This was a great tour. Melanie picked us up in Avignon at the appointed time. The van was spacious. Melanie was very conversant in English and extremely knowledgeable about all of the areas that were toured. Melanie made for a very wonderful experience and we came away from the tour with a much greater knowledge of southern France.

It was a memorable day trip, covering many places I could not have done myself. Our guide Violette was knowledgeable and helpful, showing several points with handheld illustrations. I would recommend this trip, especially from September onward as public transport to Les Baux stops.

Our tour was very good. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. We enjoyed the towns of Les Baux and Orange as well as wine tasting in Chateau Neuf du Papes. We would have liked longer in Arles and went to St Remy which we were not expecting. All in all very enjoyable.

jeremywmeisinger
, Jun 2015
This tour is really two separate tours stuck together. You go north, and then come back to Avignon to pick up other people before going in the opposite direction. I think this led to a lot of extra time in the van, which was unfortunate. We got off to a really late start due to traffic, and then were delayed again when our guide figured out we had left someone in Avignon. Luckily we didnt have to go back for them, but all of these delays ended up costing us lunch time. The first part of the tour was nice the winery tour was good, and seeing Orange was also interesting. However, for the second part of the tour we picked up passengers who had requested Spanish. What this meant was that the tour guide would say everything in English, and then repeat herself in Spanish. This was fine while we were in the car, but was really horrible during the walking tour of Arles. We would hear a spiel about a site for a few minutes, then just stand around while it was repeated. I think it really slowed down the tour. I probably would not book tours through this company again.

Stuart E

This tour gave an excellent overview of the Provence region, and every town we stopped at had something different and special to offer, and our tour leader provided an excellent and informed commentary. All three key aspects of the tour were very enjoyable and time was available for us to enjoy the features of each, e.g. the Arles market, the Roman amphitheatre in Orange and the beautiful village of Les Baux de Provence.
