    We spent three fantastic days with our guide Romain showing us around Provence. We first went to Arles where we visited the amphitheater, the night cafe, hospital and then the asylum at St Remy. Along the way Romain continually explained the impact and importance to Van Gogh of these locations. We also visited St Remy, the Pont du Gard and the Luberon. As a guide, Romain was knowledgeable, fun and extremely easy to get along with. Nothing was too much trouble and if we wanted to spend more time in one location, Romain was more than happy to accommodate our wishes. We highly recommend Romain as a guide and this tour company.

    We had a great tour from our MSC cruise in Marseille to Arles and Saint Rémy de Provence with Roman.
    Before we arrived in Arles he stopped by the Langlois bridge painted by Van Gogh. I felt priviledged to picture myself next to this bridge because any other tour I have been looking for weren’t stoping there and this bridge is one of my favorite Van Gogh’s painting.
    Then we went to the center of Arles where you can discover a 2000 year old Roman marvel next to a Van Gogh’s painting at every corner. For me this city is the best I ever toured in. It is not overcrowded, it is not made for tourists only, it is authentic, real, not perfect but so beautiful.
    Roman recommended us the Caesar restaurant decorated by Christian Lacroix where we had a delicious lunch.
    If you come to Provence an if you like Van Gogh do not miss Saint Paul de Mausole psychatric asylum in Saint Rémy de Provence. It is an ancient monastry where Van Gogh arrived after he cut his hear. There you will enter his bedroom and see so many reproductions of his masterpieces axactly where he painted them by the fields outside the asylum. Just MAGIC !
    Thank you Roman and all the staff from Provence Private Tour.
    See you next year.

    This tour is exactly what I was dreaming about Provence ! Arles is such a simple and lovely city. So authentic ! Its heritage is amazing. Out tour was perfect with Sylvie. Standing exactly in front a painting of Van Gogh where he painted it was amazing. Saint Rémy Asylum is also magic. It is more than just art. Its highly spiritual. Thank you for the emotion you gave me.

    My wife and I spent a joyous afternoon in the company of Sylvie visiting Arles and St Remy to explore Van Gogh’s time in Provence. For anyone who likes his paintings from that time, it’s a joy. You can still see where it was and you can still see the railway bridge that’s in the same painting. The night cafe is also there, now painted bright yellow. The Fondation Van Gogh, while not officially on the itinerary, is well worth a side visit time permitting.
    We were also able to visit St Paul de Mausole, the mental hospital where Van Gogh admitted himself from 1889 to 1890. Still a hospital for mentally ill patients it exudes an atmosphere of calm and peace. Some of his best loved paintings were done here including Starry Night and the Irises. The bedroom used by Vincent is open to visit; it felt a privilege to step inside it.
    Many thanks for Sylvie for making it a memorable afternoon.

    We are 5 friends and usually we prefer to visit the cities ourselves. Every year we arrange a different route.We took a cruise on the Mediterranean in this year (September 2019)
    We decided to want to do something different this year and We wanted to do something about Van Gogh. My friends and I have decided that this tour will not be handled without guidance, especially if the subject is Van Gogh. (We knew that this tour could not be done without guidance) So I found the Provence Private tour company. Our guide was Romain. We were warmly greeted by him at the port. I’m not really exaggerating, he was superb! An unprecedented guide,awesome! The tour was extraordinary, we loved every minute of the tour. We are very happy to do this tour with Romain.
    Thank you very much for this wonderful tour and guidance.
    For those considering this tour, ask for Romain! He is terrific!

    We recommend to anyone who plans to visit Van Gogh.

    I did this tour with my elder sister and my mother. It was an absolutely great tour. The tour guide, vehicle, driver were simply perfect. The tour was very exciting, very emotional, very inspiring. I think I should write more details about the guide, because I think thanks to him we had a great tour.
    His name was Roman B., he was an expert of Van Gogh and his paintings. He has a fantastic skill. When he explains the details of Van Gogh’s life, as if you can feel to touch to Van Gogh. He was so successful, so knowledgeable.
    Would strongly recommend. Thanks for this unforgettable day.
