We had a wonderful time on this tour. Our driver Thierry was very attentive and ensured that we saw all the things on our bucket list. The Flamingo Bird park was spectacular and we saw horses and bulls albeit not in “the wild”. We visited St Marie de la Mer and had plenty of time to climb to the roof of the the Notre Dame church and get some spectacular views of the town and the Mediterranean. Thierry also dropped us off near our accommodation and saved us a train ride. Merci Thierry.

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.

Bien mais on passe peu de temps aux Saintes Marie de la mère max 45 min et 50 min aux parc ornithologique. Donc c'est un peu la course. Pour les chevaux et les taureaux on les voit en vitesse en passant à côté en voiture. Le tour vaut dans tout les cas la peine mais faut pas espérer découvrir et déambuler dans les les saintes Marie.
