It was great seeing the flamingos, but a half day trip would have been better. The two towns we visited were mostly closed due to the time of year, and over two hours spent in Saintes Marie’s de la Mer was way too long. By the time we got to Aiges Mortes the cafes there were closing up too. The morning was great, but the afternoon wasn’t so great due to it being the off season. The rain didn’t help either as there was no where to shelter out of the rain.

Fantastic tour and a wonderful tour guide. She was so personable, informative and helpful! The white horses were amazing and beautiful. I had some grapes with me and they ate them right from my hand…very gently. The flamingos were also incredible to observe. We stopped for lunch in a very sweet walled town and had plenty of time to walk around too. I highly recommend this tour and the guide as well! She was a very safe driver as well.

Highly recommended! Pink flamingos, Camargue horses in the wild and characteristic bulls of the place already make the tour noteworthy for those who love nature and discover new landscapes. St Marie della Mer is the stop where you can enjoy the beautiful Mediterranean Sea (beautiful water). Agues Mortes, with its walkable walls and tower of intense human significance, is the perfect ending. And last but not least a phenomenal guide! Veronica is the guide that everyone dreams of: passionate, super nice, very helpful, punctual, organized, brilliant. In short: to do! 10+
