We had a fabulous day on this tour! Highly recommend. Very knowledgeable local guide who gave us lots of great tips on what else to see in the region too. The transport is super comfortable and the groups are small so there’s plenty of time to ask questions. The day didn’t feel rushed at all like some tours do. Thanks!

Excellent trip. This really saved our weekend.

Had a pretty poor experience in Marseilles overall, but this was our final day, and we wished we had gotten out of the city earlier. The surrounding area is beautiful, our guide was knowledgeable and adjusted our trip to dodge the rain as necessary. Overall a great experience that saved our weekend excursion.

This really an Avignon tour - other stops were interesting but not overwhelming. Lots of walking on streets with inclines. Mostly a self guided walking tour!
