Excellent trip visiting 3 wonderful vineyards. Gigi was a great tour guide and made the day so fun she had a lot of knowledge on the vineyards and the local area. Max people on a trip is 8 and we were with such a fun and friendly group of people. The only thing I would point out is get your guide says the pick up is at 8am but it is actually 9am.

Absolutely amazing tour. Our guide was super friendly and made sure we had a wonderful experience. The wine tasting was our favorite, but the stops at Grasse and 2 small villages along the way were a cherry on top! It was a day full of lovely experiences and we would highly recommend this tour.

Great experience with Gigi in the Provence area visiting three different vineyards, all great! Each one offered something unique My boyfriend and I are big Provence rosè wine lovers, and we were super happy with our day!

We would be picked up on time at the agreed meeting point. The tour was very well organized and Hedwig was a wonderful tour guide and first class driver. Many thanks for the nice day.

Really fun trip - Gigi was very fun and informative which made the tour! Fab wines as well
