Good but we spend little time at the Saintes Marie of the mother max 45 min and 50 min at the ornithological park. So it's a bit of a race. For horses and bulls we see them quickly passing by by car. The tour is worth it in any case, but do not hope to discover and wander around the Holy Mary.

Beautiful

Very beautiful trip, with a lovely and friendly guide, all I can say is that we would have liked to spend more time in the bird park, then in the little village. I would recommend it to anybody who would like to get a bit out of Avinon to see some nature, and of cause flamingos.

Lovely trip with a friendly guide

With only 3 of us on the trip, our guide had plenty of time for us. We got to see the back bulls and white horses from the Camargue and our guide was happy to stop whenever we saw a photo opportunity.
