That was awesome day-trip! I thought we just visit three places, but actually stopped by a few more on the way which had very nice view points. Joe, the driver, had explained a lot about the places with relevant history and culture, and tried us not being bored. As we didn’t have a car, it was a great opportunity to explore inland area of South France.
Spectacular scenery, and an opportunity to experience an other part of France that we would have missed if we had remained in Nice. The road was narrow and extremely twisted. Our driver was a pro. I originally planned to rent a car but I'm glad I didn't. It would have been imposible to drive safely and enjoy the scenery at the same time.
It was a long sitting trip. There was not so much time to walk in nature or enjoy the view. But the view of nature, time in villages was fascinating and the trip was worth the money that I spent. The information and stories that guide told were interesting but hard to hear in the back of the car.
Such a cool experience. The guide was French and knew a lot about the sites. He took great photographs for us as well! If you get carsick, take medication beforehand! These are windy roads and the drive is a total of 6 hours (back and forth).
The visits to the town along the way was a great experience. i just wish we had more time to spend at the Gorge. we basically stopped to take pictures and that was it.
