Marc was our driver/tour guide to Arles and Baux de Provence. He did an excellent job describing the region, telling us about the history and answering all of our questions. He was very personable, very organized and an safe driver (important to us with 2 children in our group). We were extremely pleased to have our own private van for our family of 6. The tour included the right amount of guidance and free time. Thanks to Marc for a wonderful day! The only minor glitch (not Marc's fault) was that the tour company gave us a vague meeting time (on ship arrival), so we waited not knowing when/if our driver would arrive.
