What people are saying about Les Baux-de-Provence
We had a fantastic tour with Conny on 16th May. Despite being a public holiday we managed to cover 220 kilometres and really see the best of Provence. We saw beautiful villages and had enough time to have a good impression of each - we liked being told the information on the way into the villages, dropped off, shown where to go and then having the freedom to wander ourselves before meeting up again. Impressive views and time to take scenic photographs. Loved going to St Remy de Provence and then Pont du Gard at the end of the day. We would recommend this if you are short of time (ie don't have many days in the area) or if you want a taster to know where to return to. Sadly we were too early for the lavender fields but we saw plenty without that. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made it interesting.
This tour was amazing for giving us a good sense of the history, culture, and architecture of Provence through visits to some of the smaller towns. We appreciated being given time for individual exploration of some of the sites we visited. Our guide was pleasant, helpful, and friendly. We enjoyed the information provided by our guide, and would have liked more information about the area as we were travelling. This day trip is ideal for visitors travelling without their own vehicles. All in all, an awesome day trip well worth the cost.
Our tour guide, Jean Baptiste (JB), was informative and very knowledgeable of the whole area of Provence. He took us to eight or nine different stops throughout the whole day. My wife and I loved the "all day" tour because we came to France to see a lot of the countryside and Provence......not just one or two towns. JB drove us from city to city while explaining facts of the area along the way. Then we would have time to get out and walk around at each city. This tour is the best for your money.
Provence has always been on my travel list only because of two things of which I know: Vincent Van Gogh and lavender fields. I got the two but ended up with more - Provencale cuisine, the three ancient olive trees still standing, the history of the people of France, ochre cliffs, white horses and pink flamingos, and a lot more in my memory bank. Oh and everyone must try lavender ice cream. Merci, Emmanuel.
David did a great job of providing interesting commentary about the history of the various areas we saw during the day. It was an aggressive schedule, but necessary to cover the diverse areas we saw. We could have spent much more time at each site but as a highlights/overview tour we were able to spend just enough to appreciate the special nature of each site.
