If you take Francois' tour you better be because he will have one for you around every corner. We took Tour #4 (Thursday) and it was one of the most enjoyable days of our entire trip to Provence. Francois' is prompt, personable and a true wine professional. He is a teacher as well as an entertainer. He will take you... More

Seriously, Francois is the best! You think you know wine? Francois will school you. Also our tour ended late and there were not open dinner options near our hotel. Even though he was obviously late to get home to his family he drove my husband and I to a grocery store to get food for a picnic. 5 star wine... More

This is a must if you're staying in or near Avignon and love wine. Francois is an exceptional guide. His background as a maitre de (I think that's how you spell it) obviously gives him an edge regarding explaining how to taste and enjoy wine. However, his humor and attention to detail are what makes this tour special. My wife... More

We did the tour with Francois on 26 August - a gift from our children for a special birthday. It will go down as one of the most enjoyable days we've had while travelling. Francois is just so knowledgeable about wine (and food matching) and he's particularly good at bringing this knowledge to life for his guests....he makes wine tasting... More

We did 2 wine tours with Francois. It was both an education in French wines and wine tasting but we also saw the sights of wine regions which were incredible. We also were able to enjoy two incredible lunches which combined good food and good wine. Francois was on time and very helpful and a really good host. I would... More

Francois is very helpful, nothing is too much trouble and he is very knowledgeable about wine: he picked us up in Arles in a clean and comfortable 7 seater. His own personal rating as a host is near 5*, however as I am reviewing the wine tour I can only give 3, these are the reasons why: 1 - The... More

Day 6 of our holiday in Avignon and my wife and I decided to take a day out. The tours on offer take you into the Provencal countryside and offer the opportunity to see small towns and villages off the beaten track, many of which we wouldn't have known they were there! Needless to say, they were stunning and visiting... More

Francois guided our group (including 2 lovely couples from Australia and the US) through the Chateauneuf du Pape wine region and taught us the secrets of wine tasting at 4 superb wineries. He hosted a delightful lunch along the way and also performed an entertaining sightseeing tour while conducting a French version of 'cash cab' with a dramatic musical score... More

This man Francois was supposed to pick us up for a days wine tour and tasting. This was confirmed via multiple e mails. He had both our phone numbers and when he never arrived to pick us up as promised we called him and he was rather flippant and said that he could not make it and had no manners... More
