What people are saying about Avignon

One of the best wine tastings of my life (and that’s saying a lot). Our guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and was able to be flexible with the schedule given that my wife and I had already tasted a few of the wineries on the agenda. The wines were FANTASTIC. Overall a wonderful experience and we would highly recommend!

We think the tour is a great way to visit not only several picturesque and unique villages but also magnificent Pont du Gard in one day. Our tour guide, Frederic (spelling?), was very knowledgeable and passionate about his work, accommodating and kind. We don't think we'd have enjoyed it as much if it weren't for Frederic.

Very nice activity! I recommend for anyone with little time to visit Provence. Our guide was excellent! As we were in low season, we were only 2 in the activity. Our guide was kind enough to personalize our visits according to our tastes and the season.

My wife and I had a great time on this tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and extremely happy to give information about not only this tour but all of France.

Very knowledgeable and kind guide. Perfect English speaker.
