Francois clearly loves what he does, and truthfully there is nothing more contagious then spending time with someone who is in love with showing off the wines and the region he loves most. He made the day fun by creating a sound track of music to enhance the experience. We also love learning and Francois offered a wealth of knowledge... More

He has wide ranging International experience in all aspects of wines as well as a very detailed knowledge of the various and wonderful wines of Provence.

Francois offers five different wine tours (Wednesday and Saturdays are the same- Chateauneuf du pape), and we took all five! The first tour was to the Tavel area and it was pouring rain! The weather doesn't affect the wine tasting, and we had a great time. The other tours were in nicer weather, and just as much fun(we enjoyed the... More

Francois Marcou picked us up at 9 am as scheduled. Chateauneuf du pape is one of our favorites and we had a great time. We may have basic knowledge of French wine but we learned a lot from him. I am teaching my friends and family what we learned!! We were 6 people in his private van and it was... More

My friends and I didn't have a whole day and contacted Francois the day before and were lucky that he could accommodate 5 of us. He is an owner operator and takes great pride in his knowledge and business relationships. He provided great insight into why Chateaunuf-du-Pape wines were distinctly different from others. (I'll leave that for him to describe).... More

I was afraid I'd got my hopes too high after reading the appraising reviews. I shouldn't have worried - the whole tour with the wonderful Francois was a fantastic experience. We took the Tuesday tour to Luberon and the scenery was amazing.

I won't repeat what other reviewers have said, I'll only agree with all of it. Francois is so wonderful, as was his tour. I went in a wine novice preferring sweet whites from Germany and not really straying from what I know. After, I feel confident to try (and might actually really like) so much more. His wine tasting lesson... More

This was my second time taking the Chateauneuf du Pape tour. I took it for the first time three years ago and wanted to bring my friends along. Francois picked us up at our b&b and returned us 9 hours later. He entertained us with his stories and sense of humor. He also taught us and trained us on how... More

I can’t recommend this tour enough. The 5 star’s awarded on tripadvisor is well deserved. Francois was punctual, professional, knowledgeable, entertaining and made the wine tour throughly enjoyable. Francois turned up at our hotel on time, he was smartly dressed in his red trousers & jumper and made us feel at easy straight away. He was polite, courteous and even... More

Vincent of Avignon Prestige Tours was our guide to two Chateauneuf du Pape wineries and a chocolate factory. His knowledge of the area and the wines that they produced was outstanding. The four of us on tour , two from USA and two from the Caribbean, all purchased wines and chocolates as per his recommendations, and all were totally happy... More
