The guide chose a good route. He's a good entertainer and gets everyone involved in the conversation. He could have described a few monuments in more detail, for example Saint-Trophime.

Les carrieres les lumieres, a great show. To be able to visit the interior of the sanatorium we liked it a lot. Ricardo, a great guide, who has been telling us everything about Van Gogh.
