What people are saying about Avignon

Overall very nice tour with lots to see. The only comment is a choice of timing: we arrived very early to Les Baux village - all shops and restaurants were still closed and starting to open; and then we arrived to Avignon around 13:00, so some of restaurants were going to close for a day-rest break in an hour or so and only touristy bistros were opened (not what I enjoy).. For wine tastes can differ, so I will not say enything here. But otherwise it was a very interesting journey if you like historical places and a feel of Provance. I am glad I went and would recommend.

If you like wine this is a must to try. Christian was an amazing and patient guide and he took extra time for us at the end to explain why Châteauneuf du Pape is unique in its way-it is made out of 13 different grapes. Plus he told us some funny local stories of the Pope which added an extra smiles to the trip. We saw 2 wine producers and got some wine tasting lesson to compare the wines between each other. You could understand better why wine is important in the French culture. It is a whole science behind it. Warmly recommend it.

Nicolas was fantastic. The tour went to Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Seguret. I am pretty familiar with wines from this region, and I learned so much more information. The others on the tour were not as familiar, and everything was presented so that any level of wine experience will have a wonderful time. Would go again!

Nico was a fantastic guide and provided so much information (and wine!) during our half day tour. We really enjoyed our tour and our only regret was that we didn’t book a full day tour.

Wonderful guide. Very knowledgeable about the region and the wine. Two good stops for tasting and a brief stop at th Chateau ruins for the view. Highly recommended
