We were the only two people on the tour so we travelled by car with our guide, Gus. Gus was very friendly and knowledgeable and he accompanied us on the whole tour, apart from entering the arena in Nimes which we had to do ourselves. Pont du Gard was very interesting and we also visited the museum. Uzes was a lovely little town - we could easily have spent more time there. In Nimes we entered the Arena and wandered around but we didn’t have any other time to see any other sites in Nimes. We could also have spent more time there. All in all, it was a good tour though with a good guide.

Although it rained for the duration of our tour, we'd a thoroughly enjoyable tour. Our tour guide was very sociable and informative. I would like to suggest that some form of step should be provided to enable the less able to climb into your minibus. Having booked tickets to enable us to jump the queue, there wasn't any queue. I feel that this was an unnecessary additional charge and as such the difference should be paid back to us together with compensation for misguided information.

A five-star guided trip (Emanuel)

We were very happy that we signed up for this trip on our first day of stay in Avignon. My husband and I enjoyed our 5 hours trip tremendously with the guide, Emanuel. Not only that he was knowledgeable about the history and character of the places we visited, we have had great time just talking and chitchatting about almost anything with Emanuel during the drive to our various destinations! He was witty, speak very good English and offered us fantastic information about the places we visited. Love it. Absolutely a highly recommendable guided trip!
