I actually went on Mike's wine safari several years ago and struggled (at that time) as to how I would review, as it frankly fell below MY expectations. Then by pure coincidence my cousin booked him last year and felt the same sentiments. So, I felt I should share my opinion. On the plus, Mike is knowledgeable, professional, punctual, and... More

Do not hesitate to book a wine safari with Mike. He is a wonderful and knowledgeable guide and a very nice and accommodating person. We were a family of 7, including 4 under the age of 18, so Mike accommodated us by building in some general sightseeing as well a couple winery visits. He made it fun for all, and... More

I can't say enough good things about about the day we spent with Mike. He imparted his knowledge and passion for Cotes d'Rhone wines, and really opened my mind. Provided a great overview of the region and we saw tremendous sites, also. I shall now add this wine region to my favorites.

If you're looking to explore the wine country of Provence AND small villages, this is the perfect guide! My boyfriend and I were staying in Aix en Provence without a car and really wanted to spend a day in the wine country so we booked a day with Mike at Wine Safari. He picked us up first in the morning... More

We had a fun, informative full day tour with Mike. Lots of information on the geology, history and wine-making business. A wonderful experience for those interested in Rhone Valley wines. The scenery was just incredible as well.

My wife and I did a tour with Mike at the end of September. Mike is friendly, funny, and has a very impressive wealth of knowledge to share on wine, winemaking, and the history of the Rhone region overall. We saw some beautiful parts of the Avignon countryside and even had a chance to see workers harvesting grapes in the... More

My husband and I did a wine tour with Mike at the end of August. It was so much more than what we were expecting. Mike took us to two vineyards where he gave us a tour and taught us about the wine making process starting with the grapes outside to all the machinery inside. Not only did we learn... More

Please consider doing this. Mike was wonderful, passionate, and knowledgeable. My wife and I did the all-day tour, involved wine from CDP and Gigondas. His insight into the wines we were tasting made the experience worthwhile. By far one of the highlights of our trip!
