What people are saying about Pont Saint-Bénézet
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.
Heading to the main tourist attractions of Marseille which is far from the city and completed on one day was really very fruitful trip. My trip was a lucky one as there was no traffic slow down on the road and I finished with enough time for each tourist attraction:) Sebastian is tour guide for the day who is very helpfully and very kind to wait for me when I am late for the tour and I recommend him to be the best tour guide:)
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.
Had a pretty poor experience in Marseilles overall, but this was our final day, and we wished we had gotten out of the city earlier. The surrounding area is beautiful, our guide was knowledgeable and adjusted our trip to dodge the rain as necessary. Overall a great experience that saved our weekend excursion.
We had a fabulous day, it's a great range of medieval towns, each with unique aspects. Our guide was very knowledgeable and has a great personality, very warm and lovely! It was terrific to be in such a small group so tour was very a informal and personal experience.
