What people are saying about Avignon

Our guide picked us up on time and took us to firstly Arles where vince van gogh lived most of his life and also later in St. Remy where he was in his asilum. He guided us to some of the main attractions in arles and told us many interesting facts about the history, why arles was the capital of Provence etc. We had a lot of free time also to explore the city by ourselfs afterwords. It just has an amazing vibe and you get the idea why Vincent stayed here to create his work.

It was such a lovely day out. We did two wine tours which complemented each other, one showed how the wine was made while the other show you how to best taste wine. In the afternoon we did the Lubernon tour visiting three towns. You get around an hour in each which may feel short but the point of this tour was to see the towns, we’ll definitely visit for more time again. The towns were amazing!!

Mark was a very knowledgeable, articular guide. The tour was very interesting. Definitely recommend it.
