What to expect
  • Meet your guide in the morning at Marseille Vieux Port for your whirlwind tour from Marseille to Avignon, Les Baux-de-Provence, and the prestigious wine estates of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. An hour-long drive through rolling hills of lavender and vineyards brings you first to Avignon. Though Avignon boasts an ancient Roman origin, the city is known as the home of the Papacy during the 14th and 15th centuries, when the French Popes adorned the city in opulent architecture and art. With your guide, visit Pont Saint-Bénézet – Avignon’s fabled 12th-century bridge – the lovely Notre-Dame des Doms Cathedral and the lavish Popes’ Palace. Take an optional interior tour of the UNESCO-listed palace (own expense) to see fresco-adorned chapels, galleries, and the papal apartments. You’ll then have free time to purchase your own lunch before leaving Avignon. Next, travel south to Châteauneuf-du-Pape, a lovely town in the Rhône Valley surrounded by prestigious wine estates. Marvel at the rolling vineyards, learn about the region’s distinct viniculture and terroir, and stop at a charming winery to taste fine wine and tour the wine cellars. Then hop back in the coach for a short drive to the UNESCO-listed Pont du Gard – a massive, three-tiered Roman aqueduct that spans the mighty Gardon River.   Finish your tour with a trip to Les Baux-de-Provence – a fortified medieval village perched in the Alpilles Mountains. Take some time to wander the cobblestone streets, visit the labyrinthine ruins of the Baux Castle (own expense) and snap dramatic photos from the lofty vantage point over the Luberon plains.  After a full day of sightseeing, enjoy a relaxing ride back to Marseille Vieux Port. You’ll arrive by early evening.

This tour was so enjoyable. Our guide was knowledgable and fun. Best timing for seeing a lot but not to rushed. Best tour ever. The Castles, bridges,food and wine, all excellent places if you want history, scenic views and vibes. Thank you so much for the history book that came alive for me.

This was a busy tour as we visited a number of places in one day. All the places we visited were interesting and there was enough time to see the main attractions. We particularly liked Les Baux and Chateauneuf-du-Pape where we had a wine tasting. There was quite a bit of travelling in between which also gave us a good view of the countryside. This has spurred us on to visit Provence again and spend some time exploring the area.

Very impressive. A real photo shoot. The rest of the trip was ordinary for a European town. Lots of shops.

We chose this tour in order to see as much of Avignon and the area around it a one-day excursion - we were not disappointed. The tour visited Les Baux de Provence, Pont du Gard (a massive, impressive ancient Roman bridge), Avignon and a Chateauneuf-du-Pape wine tasting room. The first three sites were excellent choices, the last was OK and I would have preferred seeing Chateauneuf-du-Pape as opposed to a rather generic wine tasting . The tour guide was attentive, knowledgable and personable; we especially enjoyed the restaurant she directed us for lunch in Avignon. However, the tour was mixed French and English speakers, causing her to present in both languages and reducing the opportunity to communicate with th us. I would recomend this tour, nonetheless.
