Very enjoyable

With the time constraints of a 1/2 day trip, we saw as much as expected. Could have had longer at St Remy to allow more time to see where Van Gogh was in the asylum, especially as this was a Van Gogh tour. But Carrieres de Lumiere was amazing and the highlight, having long enough there to see the whole show, although longer time would always be good. Good walking tour in Arles, and our guide was very interesting and informative about Van Gogh . Overall very good.
