My husband and I are going to be in Provence for six days in May. I have found a tour company named Provence Reservation that is putting together a customized tour for us which includes hotels, shared sightseeing tours and airport transfers. I gave them a "wish list" of about 15 towns/sites I wanted to visit, and they worked in almost all of them. They have us staying in Aix en Provence for three nights, Arles for one night, and Avignon for two nights.
During our first afternoon in Avignon, we will be visiting St. Remy , Les Baux and Pont du Gard. The following day is a tour to Orange and Chateauneuf du Pape for wine tasting in the morning and a tour to Nimes, Uzes and the Pont du Gard museum in the afternoon. Our flight out is at noon on the third day. My concern is the only time we have to explore Avignon are the two evenings and early morning of departure date. Is that enough time to see Avignon on our own? Or should we sacrifice one of the three tours to give us more free time in Avignon? If so, which one is expendable? They all sound wonderful.
On our day in Arles we will be visiting Cassis and the Calanques for half a day, and while Aix we will have a morning walking tour and then whole day visiting four or five Luberon villages. I know it sounds very ambitious, but this is a once-in-a-lifetime trip for our 40th anniversary and sadly we won't be going back.
The price of the tour is 980 euros/pp. We will be staying at 2 star hotels. Does this price sound reasonable?
Thanks! I greatly appreciate any thoughts and/or advice that anyone wants to share!
