I found the tour interesting. We got to know 4 cities. Every city has its charm. We were picked up from the hotel on time. A Mercedes Mini Van with 8 people. Our guide explained the most important points and sights to us while we were on the way. You have a certain amount of time to explore the area. I can recommend this tour.

Reservation of a visit in French. The guide does not speak the language well (a few words). On the ticket, it is noted "pick up between 7:30 and 8:30". It was necessary to contact the agency the day before at the end of the day to claim an hour of passage. The guide was 20 minutes late. The excursion lasted 8 hours in total (and not 10:30 am as announced on the web page). Car with 8 tourists + driver without social distancing. The guide just taxis from town to town: before stopping the car, he summarizes in 2 sentences what there is to see and what to come back in 1 hour. We are abandoned in the city without really knowing where to go. The meal (optional, not selected): soup, dish (chicken, pork, omelette), pastry, coffee €17/pers. We do not recommend this excursion. No explanation from the guide, journey in silence (except discussions between couples / friends).
