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!

Mike's knowledge is really great and he gives you a complete history of the area and wine growing. We went to two wineries and the tastings were really extensive and... More

I have done three wine tours with Mike to date (two in 2012 and one in June 2014). Each tour was unique and fabulous. Mike took away all the worry of coordinating a day of wineries and sight-seeing. He picked us up at the hotel each time, drove us around, took us to wonderful places for lunch, and of course... More

My wife and I joined Mike on a full day tour today - it was awesome. Very relaxing while Mike showed us several regions within Cote du Rhone. Mike picked us up at our hotel in Avignon first thing in the morning and dropped us back at the hotel end of the afternoon. Enjoyed wine tasting at a winery in... More
