The tour description needs to better. We thought we were going to spend more time at St Paul de Mausole. Our driver gave us more time after our entire tour protested. Too much time in Arles. Not enough in Les Baux.

Our trip was wonderful, memorable with many beautiful photos thanks to Veronica who guided and showed us every corners of the beautiful Arles city and surrounding area. Thank you Veronica again!

Very nice tour, Arles, Les-Beaux and St. Rémy are beautiful places, in addition we saw the ruines of Glanum. The multi-media show in the carrières of Les Beaux is incredible and a must-see.

A wonderful tour! Nico was extremely nice and very informative. He has a great understand of the Provence region and was a great all-around host!
