We had a wonderful morning visiting the camargue with our excellent guide Jean-Paul. We learned so much about the area, the agriculture, the wildlife and the local customs. Our guide was knowledgeable and passionate about his heritage, very caring of his clients, with many amusing anecdotes, whilst exuding Gallic charm! We felt that the tour was great value for money. Other tours with 'Get your Guide' seemed over-priced by comparison. Our only complaint would be the comfort of the rather ancient vehicle. Sitting on the benches over the wheels in the back was spine rattling and it was difficult to see out, leaving me feeling rather car sick!

Very experienced local guide - Sandra - her knowledge and enthusiasm was a big plus. Wouldn’t necessarily recommend for young children, but overall a very worthwhile experience

We could have rented our own car and done this, but we wouldn't have known where to go or what we were seeing or the history of the region. Definitely worth the time and money.

Very good time in the Camargue. 4 hours of pure pleasure with a very good guide who knows the region perfectly. We were never bored for a moment

Ariana was a delightful and knowledgeable guide through the Canarsie, a region she clearly loves.
