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.
The trip was very interesting, but I think there should be more time to visit Avignon rather there spending an hour in Les Boux or watching the Roman Pont du Gard, which you could do in 15 minutes. Very dissappointing wine tasting; the sommalier was extremely unfriendly, not explaining anything about wines we were trying. I guess they think their wines are so good and famous that they don't need any marketing, but what she was presenting was in fact anti-marketing. It spoilt somehow the overall impression of the trip.
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.
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.
Our guide, Ginny (Virginia), was very friendly and informative. She made the journeys in between the locations fun and was very happy to answer questions etc. Each location was worth stopping at although it would have been nice to have longer in the village near the Quarry of Lights. But overall it was very enjoyable and we are glad we signed up.
