The tour was incredible. The roman arena in nimes is in very good condition. You could imagine all the things that happened there. Then we wento to Uzes a very charming town and the last stop was Point du Gard which was beautiful and serene. Julien was a very good guide. Don't miss it !!

At the suggestion of our guide, our tour began half an hour earlier than was previously advertised which turned out to be to our advantage as it enabled us to see all the sites in the daylight. It turned out that we were the only ones on the tour which was wonderful as we were able to decide how long we wanted to stay at each site. Our guide, Sophia, was very knowledgable and spoke excellent English
