What people are saying about Gordes

It was such a lovely day out. We did two wine tours which complemented each other, one showed how the wine was made while the other show you how to best taste wine. In the afternoon we did the Lubernon tour visiting three towns. You get around an hour in each which may feel short but the point of this tour was to see the towns, we’ll definitely visit for more time again. The towns were amazing!!

We enjoyed our full day tour with Remy, from the wine tasting to the villages. He was very informative and told us everything we needed to know about the different wines as well as the local culture. We even stopped by two lavender fields and a sunflower field for photo ops. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip and would recommend to others.

Great tour! We loved learning about Provence wines and exploring the hill towns. We tried to do this on our own without a car but couldn't so we were thrilled when we found this tour. We really enjoyed exploring the countryside and loved not having to worry about the logistics. Our guide, Pierre, was very friendly and informative.

Nice way to see the old historic hilltop villages all in one day and have some wine tasting. We even stopped at one of the lavender fields that was along the way. It is a long day and starts off with wine so make sure to eat breakfast. It was a great day.

Nellie was an awesome guide and we really enjoyed her knowledge and company. She kept us on time so we could enjoy each stop and did all she could to ensure we were closest as possible to park and walk to the destination. Fun and easy going nature! .
