Best of Eastern France question

Does this tour visit Pon du Gard in Provence? I saw pictures of it on one of Rick's videos and noticed that it is close to the road when we travel from Vaison la Romaine to Aix en Provence. I would love to see it if possible.

Sorry to say that the Pont du Gard is quite far from that route and was not not on the tour when I took it. The aqueduct is about 18 miles northeast of Nimes and you'd need a good two or three hours for a visit. Since the afternoon in Aix is free time, I think it would great if the tour were change to include the Pont, have the walking tour of Aix in the afternoon and do away with the free time that day. I visited the Pont the year after my tour and thought it was a really great sight to visit.
