We had a great time learning about the Roman ruins in Provence. Since we were traveling by train, it was nice to see a little bit of the towns outside of our base in Avignon. Our guide was from the area and he was very adaptable to changing situations, even when there was a miscommunication on the meeting point the app gave us. We had a great day in the end!

Our guide Flora was extremely capable and knowledgeable as she showed us the Pont de Gard, the superb small city of Uzes, and Nimes. Everything was great, and my wife and I strongly recommend this half-day tour.

We enjoyed a beautiful walk through Nimes and were able to learn about all of the major sites as well as the little details of the town along the way. Highly recommend!

Our guide knew a lot and was able to explain in several languages. You have just enough time to get an impression of the places visited.

Wonderful friendly guide with lots of interesting facts! Small group and a very comfortable journey!
