Sightseeing Tours in Provence
Who and where we are
FranceOneTour is a small private tour company of a human size located near Avignon in Provence, southern France.
What we do for you
Our aim is to make you visit Provence or other parts of southern France comfortably and convivially, driven by your private English or French speaking accompanying driver, all at a competitive price. All our Provence tours are personalised to your wishes. We can make suggestions for what to visit. We pick you up anywhere you want.
How we drive you
We use air conditioned minivans for up to 6 passengers.
Cruise passengers arriving at Marseilles cruise port often visit the Roman amphitheatre in Arles and continue to the villages Baux de Provence and Saint Rémy de Provence, or they go to Aix en Provence and Cassis.
Contrary to popular belief, Marseilles is a beautiful city to visit in itself, and one can easily spend a day there with the markets, churches, the old port, the splendid view of the Mediterranean, perhaps interrupted by a visit to an authentic bouillabaisse restaurant.
Where we take you sightseeing
Many tourists like to visit the quaint villages of the Luberon: Gordes, Roussillon, Bonnieux, Lacoste, Fontaine de Vaucluse, l'Isle sur la Sorgue, Oppède le Vieux, Ménerbes... Peter Mayle made the Luberon famous with his book A Year in Provence. The many local food and antique markets are worth a visit, and so is the Sénanque Abbey.
From June to August, many like to see the coloured landscapes of Provence's lavender and sunflower fields.
Wine tours of famous vineyards such as Châteauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, Beaumes de Venise, Vacqueyras or Côtes du Rhône are also popular.
Hikers, bikers, and other nature lovers will be spoiled with the three natural parks la Camargue and its exceptional wildlife, the Luberon and its unspoiled nature, and the Alpilles.
The most courageous bikers try to follow the path of the Tour de France and climb the Mont Ventoux. Others use a car, but it is not for those with a fear of heights and no crash barriers.
Rhône river cruise passenger stopping in Avignon often visit the Roman arena in Nimes, the Roman aqueduct Pont du Gard, and the historic city of Uzès. Of course, many visit Avignon itself to see its historic Pope Palace and the Pont d'Avignon that ends in the middle of the Rhône.
Roman ruin lovers struggle to find time to see all the ruins: amphitheatres in Arles and Nimes, Maison Carrée in Nimes, Pont du Gard, Glanum in Saint Rémy de Provence, the theatre in Orange, Vaison la Romaine, Pont Julien, and several remains of small aqueducts in the Alpilles.
We have many years' experience in Provence and the rest of southern France.
