Then move on to Les Baux de Provence, a picturesque medieval village built on a rocky ledge more than 800 feet (245 meters) high. Your expert local guide will introduce you to the village on a comprehensive walking tour, before allowing you time at leisure to explore on your own.

Caroline and Francis were stellar tour guides, making the most of every moment of the day. We saw so much of Provence that could not have been possible otherwise, and the train ride from Paris was fast and pleasant. One of the best features of this tour was the friendly human contact reassuring us every step of the way. We were greeted at Place des Pyramides at the very start of the day, accompanied to Gare de Lyon by a kind guide, and we were greeted in Avignon by another representative from Viator who led us to our guides for the rest of the day. Effortless and anxiety-free, the reassuring presence of qualified, capable guides took the potential stress out of a phenomenal experience. Caroline and Francis were friendly, funny, articulate, and extremely informative in their explanations of all we saw and did. We highly recommend this trip!
