Arles, Les Baux De Peovence and Aix

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Our group of (4) are on Koningsdam and will be in Marseille on Monday Oct.15. Dock at 8am and ship departs at 6pm. I had a private tour booked to see the 3 places in thread title but last week heard from Provence Tours that this itinerary is no longer "available"; they offered Arles and Les Baux OR Les Baux and Aix . Wanted to see Arles for Van Gogh ( not necessarily including the mental institution ) , Les Beaux for "Carrieres des Lumieres" and Aix to walk around a bit. I don't see this particular itinerary available anywhere else and have not had any luck rebooking. Has anyone here done something comparable? The map looks like the distances are doable but am not on the ground there so there must be something I am not taking into consideration. Appreciate any advice - thanks!

We could certainly do that itinerary with a rental car, although we would personally not want to do that much in a single port day. I have no clue as to why tour companies are not doing that itinerary. If you do not want to rent a car you could certainly try to hire a private car/driver/guide and advise them of your desired itinerary.

Does Provence Connections still offer it? I remember them offering Arles, Avignon and Les Baux. Maybe Aix is what makes it difficult for them.

No, they don't. We have already seen Avignon so wanted to see Aix on this trip which appears to be on the way back to the ship if we go to Arles and Les Baux first. Still trying.... Thanks for responding though!
