Private Provence Tour: la Camargue, Les-Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer and Aigues-Mortes

2 reviews
Set out on a private tour from Avignon to la Camargue, a wondrous natural river delta filled with marshes where black bulls and white horses reside. Explore the coastal town of Les Saintes Maries de la Mer, a stop for gypsy pilgrams, then embark on a Rhone River cruise to explore the surrounding ecosystem. Afterward, spend some time in the walled town of Aigues-Mortes, with its gothic style church and impressive tower that initially served to protect the town and later as a state prison.

Such a great way to explore the Camargue. We had the 2.5 hour ride (I think it just the minimal time to really enjoy nature). We were a bit disappointed that the horses are not the Camargue white ones yet the horses were very friendly and experienced. Our guide was great making sure everyone is safe and comfort. I don’t know how but she managed to make everyone feel good even though the level of experience was so different between the group members. We did walking, trotting and galloping. What else can you ask for.

first time riding, started riding, 10 minutes after the horse wasn't compliant, ignoring my commands. the guide, although reluctant agreed at the end to let me off the horse and allow me to return. asked for a partial refund, got none. (costs 43 euro) very bad experience, try another farm.

I enjoyed our horse ride to the beach. The price is significantly cheaper than riding in England. I was disappointed not to be on Camargue horses but they were nice all the same. My husband was a bit nervous as he is a beginner and wasn't given much instruction when the horses had to walk through the water and we had to take our feet out of the stirrups. Once out of the water his horse started trotting before he could get them back in so that was a little nerve wracking for him. They have helmets if you don't have your own. Wear insect repellent, lots of it, ALL over, they can and do bite through jeans etc. as my legs are testimony to!

Brown-coloured horses, instead of the lovely white/grey Camargue horses, slow pace during the trek, no way to speed up or change course (a little) for the fun, we were dissappointed by this horse riding set up, and didn't feel - either with the mounts or the explanations given by the guides - that we were in the heart of the Camargue. I must say that our previous expériences have been far more pleasurable and more typical of the area ! We'll have to make sure that we book up in advance next time with the Centre Equestre that we frequented previously (unfortunately, but not suprisingly, fully booked when we'd phoned last minute). Sorry, but we can't recommend this place, for Camargue lovers such as ourselves in any case.

The riding, horses, scenery, guide, communication and value for money were great. I was told to bring closed shoes. What they didnt tell me to bring was mosquito repellant or preferably not to come unless you are fortunate enough not to be allergic to mossi bites. The scenery and riding was absolutely great - but the whole way for over 2 hours I was bitten by huge mosquitos. Through my jeans and top as well as socks that I had to wear for my closed shoes. There wasn't a minute of respite. My lovely tanned legs that Id been looking forward to parading when we got back now look like I have chicken pox or worse. I would estimate over 500 bites. Face mouth eyes ears. Legs are the worst though. And that was with jeans on. Never ever again
