We had a wonderful time on this tour. Our driver Thierry was very attentive and ensured that we saw all the things on our bucket list. The Flamingo Bird park was spectacular and we saw horses and bulls albeit not in “the wild”. We visited St Marie de la Mer and had plenty of time to climb to the roof of the the Notre Dame church and get some spectacular views of the town and the Mediterranean. Thierry also dropped us off near our accommodation and saved us a train ride. Merci Thierry.

it was an excellent trip, very educational and engaging, with interesting stops along the way showcasing the Camargue breathtaking landscapes, white horses, bulls and even flamingoes in late October!

Despite the rain, the safari went very well thanks to Jean's passion! A big thank you for this moment of sharing!

Brilliant activity with a perfect guide. The proposed tour allows you to discover the Camargue and learn a lot.

Our guide was very knowledgeable. She grew up in the Camargue and her pride in the area was evident.
