Tour description

Forget the hassles of hiring a car and finding your own way! Take a small group tour of Provence and its exquisite highlights: Fontaine de Vaucluse, Pont du Gard, Les Baux de Provence, Gordes and Roussillon. Your minivan holds a maximum of eight passengers, and a small group tour is the perfect way to get to out-of-the-way places in one day.

You will visit the famous Pont du Gard bridge classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site and dating back to the 1st century. You'll also tour the historic center of Les Baux de Provence, with free time to enjoy lunch on your own. After a stop at the Antiques of Saint Remy de Provence, a triumphal arch and funeral monument in a field of olive trees painted many times by Vincent Van Gogh, you'll journey to the Luberon, made famous by Peter Mayle in his book A Year in Provence. You'll also visit Roussillon and the dry-stone village of Gordes, one of the most beautiful villages in France.Stroll in the typical provençal markets in Gordes on Tuesdays and in Roussillon on Thursdays (no market in winter season). Finally, you will enjoy some free time in the refreshing village of Fontaine de Vaucluse : walk to the spring of the resurgence, which depth has never been discovered so far.
