Description

Explore the iconic locations of Provence on this full-day tour. Visit the remarkable Palais des Papes in Avignon, see the magnificent Pont du Gard, taste local vintages in the wine-centric town of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and discover the charming hilltop village of Les Baux-de-Provence.

Avignon is famous for playing host to the Catholic pope during the papal schism of the 14th century. See the imposing Palais des Papes, and admire the city’s magnificent riverfront ramparts. Enjoy the relaxing Provencal atmosphere as you explore quaint streets and elegant squares lined with shady plane trees, and catch a postcard-worthy view of the famous Pont’Avignon

From there, head to the world-renowned wine-making village of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Stroll down twisting narrow streets and by beautiful fountains, and take in the 360-degree panoramic view over the Rhône valley before a tasting of the area’s exceptional local wine. Continue the Pont du Gard aqueduct, one of the most beautiful vestiges of Roman architecture in the region.

Reach the hilltop village of Les Baux-de-Provence, listed as one of the most beautiful villages in France. Perched a top a rock in the heart of the Alpilles, this citadel boasts a massive medieval castle. Admire the breathtaking view over the Provencal countryside and then explore the cobbled alleys, soaking up the charm of its stone houses, art galleries, craft shops, and traditional restaurants.

What an amazing trip! The tour guide (Mark) was so attentive and made sure that the day was great. We saw so much and his knowledge was superb so we didn't miss a single thing. Baux de Provence is so beautiful, we had such a special time despite the biting cold December mistral wind. Mark really wanted to ensure that everyone on the trip got as much out of it as possible and we would definitely book this kind of trip again next time we are back in Provence.

The tour was as advertised, and I liked the itinerary. However, I do not think it was good value for the money, as it was basically just a means of transportation to see many places in one day. The driver did not give us any guided tours of the towns we visited. We were on our own. No admission fees were included at all. So basically it was just an expensive ride around the area.
