A wonderful way to experience the Camargue! Jean Michel is a wonderful, fun guide who gives more than information - insights and stories to make this area come alive. He was so good about finding animals and allowing time for our photographers to get all the pics they wanted.

I had my excellent tour guide parfait/perfect he was amazing and did a very very good job. He showed us around the top places for photos and was amazing!
