    The highlights: sites included, people in this group of 8, the place we chose for lunch, and the weather. It was soon apparent our driver/guide Christian and the group had very different expectations. He expected to drive, drop off with instructions, and return. The group expected a tour guide. He was knowledgeable and friendly; he wanted to please so he finally accepted our insistence that he guide us and stay with us. He had not done the necessary planning for this full day tour. He had poor sense of time and pace of this elderly group. Parking was a huge issue and he scraped his and another car in a space too small for the vehicle. Many disasters.

    We felt safe with our driver/guide Caroline. She communicated throughout the tour about the sites we were to visit in preparation for our free time at the stops. We also learned about the surrounding areas as we travelled through this region. A pleasant and informative tour which we enjoyed.

    J'ai apprécié ce tour d'une journée, baignée dans la culture romaine, tant architecturale que par les anecdotes de la vie quotidienne de cette époque.Les arènes de Nîmes sont majestueuses et bien conservées.La ville d'Uzès est un havre de paix, quant au Pont du Gard un édifice à couper le souffle. La clé de voûte de ce circuit a été pour moi la dégustation d'huile d'olive et ses dérivés.Notre guide a su mettre en valeur durant le trajet les éléments historiques, culturels et gastronomiques voire oenologiques intéressants. J'ai trouvé ce concept de mini-bus ( climatisé!) fort approprié et convivial pour découvrir la Provence en petit comité . J'invite vivement à tester ces circuits variés et pertinents pour un séjour sans tracas de voiture lors d'un séjour en Provence.

    My son and I took this wonderful and informative tour with guide Julian. Since it was during Dec.and we were the only ones booked for that day, it was like a private tour. Julian was an excellent driver and always made you feel safe. The Amphitheater in Nimes was such an incredible sight and although there are many, we were told that this is the best preserved one. On from there we visited the quaint town of Uzes and were given time to just stroll around the town and take in it's quaint beauty on our way to Pont Du Gard. The Aqueduct was the pieces de resistance and was breathtaking. Julian explained a bit about the history and then gave us tickets to enter on our own. We had the time to take it all in and marvel at the brilliant and innovative Roman design. We really enjoyed this tour and would recommend Julian as a guide for anymore who visits the magical walled city of Avignon.

    We were very pleased with our guide and the tour itself. There was a group of 6 of us, all of whom had seen Pont du Gard, so the driver agreed to spend more time in Uzes which was a beautiful village.

    We didn't see all the Roman sites listed for Nimes Uzès was an attractive town we found a great patisserie and this was our second visit to Pont du Garde, but from the other side of the river which didn't have as good a view.
