This is the best tour hands down! Abdu was such an awesome guide! Segways are extremely easy to drive, it becomes second nature in just a few minutes. If you like adventure, personalized guide and visiting most of Maresille’s landmarks in a couple of hours you cannot miss this tour!

Good tour if you have limited time to visit these places. You get to see the main points. The guide was really friendly, and knowledgeable. This your was perfect for the time we wanted to spend in these locations.

Perfect activity to discover Camargue! Our guide was excellent! sandra knew everything about her lovely region and it was such a pleasure to travel with her. Thank you! Et bonne continuation!

Brilliant 2 hours. Bit tricky at the beginning getting used to the controls and the maps but we soon were ok. Would recommend. We were on our own rather than following an instructor

Everyone was very nice and comfortable. I had a great time
