We loved this tour! Nelly was a great guide, responsive to the group and fun. We really liked the format of the tour - in a van with guide commentary and then on our own in the various locations.

We bookend this tour mainly because of our interest in van Gogh. Great was out disappointment upon arriving at the Musée Estrine Présence Van Gogh in St Remy just to discover that the musée only opened at 14:00 and we would therefore not be able to visit. The guide didnt know about the times, surely they should be informed as to opening times of the sites. Her response was a mere, Im so sorry Well, not good enough. The second dissappointment was the fact that the Monastery Saint-Paul de Mausole as well as the archeological site were also both closed and the guide yet again unaware of the fact... The reason was that the 1 November is a public holiday in France and nor Viator not the Travel Company informed us about the fact that these sites were going to be closed. The next stop was Les Baux de Provence, which was a hightlight. The light show, Carrièrs de Lumièrs, was a breathtaking experience! At the last stop at Arles, we decided not to join the group and walked the route of Van Gogh and view some of the sites which he painted. Little info was given by the guide about Van Gogh which is a pitty. All in all not worth the amount of money one pays for this tour, seeing that none of the entrance fees are included.

Tour Guide didn't give us any introduction that is related to Van Gogh, therefore, we had missed Saint-Paul Hospital in St. Remy. The whole trip was very little in relevant to Van Gogh. I don't recommend this tour.

I thought the trip was great but it should not be called on the trail of Van Gogh because not much was discussed about the famous painter.

Great day visiting two villages and Arles. Cedric was a lovely driver and guide. Our only suggestion is to add 30 minutes to the Arles visit. Merci beaucoup. This was my second Viator tour and the day trips are wonderful.

Rémy, our very enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide for the day, brought us around the Les Alpilles to follow the trails of Van Gogh in Saint Rémy and Arles, and then to the beautiful village, Les Baux-de-Provence. It was an experience of a lifetime!

This tour is worth the price as we visited so many places including the hospital where Van Gogh stayed in France and the restaurant featured in one of his paintings. Our tour guide was also very good. She was told us about the history of places and even how Napoleon Bonaparte had the trees planted for his soldiers to get a shade. We visited a busy market in Saint Remy. If you are craving for paella, you have to bring your own plastic fork as they only had a shell for you to use as utensil. There were soaps, fruits, vegetables, dried vegetables, ceramics and a lot more. We also visited this wonderful place Le Baux where we had our lunch. A spectacular show called the Carrieres de Lumieres CDL is really worth the price you pay. My suggestion though is to have lunch in Saint Remy so we would have more time to watch CDL. Due to the heat in France during our recent visit, we decided to sit in a coffee shop to relax after taking photos around another quaint town Arles.

The guide was very poor. She never spoke a word to us on our way to our first stop, Arles. When we arrived, she handed us a map and a departure time. She spoke a little on the way to Les Baux de Provrnce. Same scenario on arrival.....map and departure time. Then we proceeded to the Roman ruins and mental hospital outside of St Remy. She drove through the town, never stopping, as was advertised in the brochure. We returned 45 minutes early.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. We learned so much history and loved seeing the scenery that inspired Van Gogh. It was a busy day that did not leave a lot of time to fully explore each town. But overall, well worth it.
