We saw so many sights in one day and somehow it didn't seem too rushed. The villages were beautiful. Lea, our guide, was a good driver and very friendly. She gave us a lot of information along the way. My only criticism of her would be that there were a couple of occasions where she would forget a few facts- but I understand that she is new to the tourism industry so that will improve. I'm also thankful that she said she forget, instead of just making stuff up. Everything considered I would 100% recommend this tour.

We think the tour is a great way to visit not only several picturesque and unique villages but also magnificent Pont du Gard in one day. Our tour guide, Frederic (spelling?), was very knowledgeable and passionate about his work, accommodating and kind. We don't think we'd have enjoyed it as much if it weren't for Frederic.

We knew very little about the area before this trip but enjoyed the group and the tour very much. The guide, Caroline(?) was very informative and was trying to make our experience as pleasant as possible. The only backdrop is that the more I learn about the area, the longer I wanted to stay.

Nicholas was a fabulous guide. There were only 3 of us and we had an informative and relaxed day. Merci beaucoup!

The driver was very nice , he halped us în everything
