We (2 adults, children 8 and 4 years) booked the day tour "Wild Landscapes of the Camargue" in English and were very satisfied. Our guide was very friendly and showed and told us a lot. First we were in the Flamingo Park, which we could visit for about 1 1/2 hours. After that we were in Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer for almost 3 hours, a very nice place with bathing possibilities in the sea (you should pack your bathing suit). Then we were 1 1/2 hours in Aigues-Mortes, which is also a beautiful place, known for its salt lake. While driving in a spacious open-plan car (with child seats), we could see the typical white Camargue horses and black cattle and of course vineyards. We were completely satisfied. We had food with us, which I would recommend, so you have more time to visit the cities. Mouth protection is mandatory in the current situation and was also observed by the guide. We were very satisfied. Thank you for the nice day, Merci!
