    What to Expect
    Your 6-hour tour begins with afternoon pickup by comfortable minivan from your Avignon hotel. Enjoy sun-kissed river views as you arrive at your first stop, the UNESCO-listed Pont du Gard. Considered an ancient work of art, this three-tiered construction is the highest of all elevated Roman aqueducts. View the perfectly preserved masterpiece of ancient engineering and the rushing Gardon River below.

    Next, head south to the Les Baux de Provence – a fortified medieval village carved straight from the limestone-rich earth. Meander through the narrow stone streets to view the many original 16th-century houses, the labyrinthine ruins of Château de Baux and other main attractions such as the Museum of Santons and St Vincent Church. From this lofty vantage point, spot other hilltop towns that decorate the the landscape like the gorgeous village of Gordes – which is your next stop!

    Tumbling down the hillside in waves of white rock and terracotta, Gordes is a masterpiece of stone architecture. Tour Gorde’s charming shops, have a look at the reconstructed Renaissance castle and enjoy more sweeping vistas of the Luberon valley.

    If you’ve purchased the standard tour, you’ll return to your Avignon hotel from Gordes. Upgrade your excursion to visit the stunning village of Roussillon for an unforgettable look at the region’s famous ochre cliffs, painted in swathes of red and yellow. Grab any last souvenirs before heading back to Avignon, where your tour ends in the evening.

    4.5 hours of this 7 hour tour was spent in the car driving, which was a terrible experience. This tour is ideal for people who want to maximize the look of their vacation on social media by proving that went to 4 different locations. You have 45 mins or less in each location.
