    The tour was a good taste of some of the more popular sites in Provence. It was a treat and a time saver to have a knowledgeable driver familiar with routes and access to sites. Our group was a mixture of French and English which the guide diligently tried to handle but it left no time for in-depth discussions including history etc. We found the time spent at each site sufficient and the in between driving not begrudged due to our less than perfect weather conditions. One word of caution is lunch options are poor. A packed snack would have been better.

Impressive

We loved the trip, it was exiting to see these old buildings, and our guide was very well informed, nice and gave us very good tips on where to go when we had free time:-) I would recommend this to anybody interested in Roman times and impressive buildings. We choose it for Pont du Gard, but Usez and Nimes have made just as much an impression on us.
