Francois was fabulous! We were in heavy rain most of the day, but somehow he convinced us we would have fun anyway and we did. Certainly he is very knowledgeable in all things wine and he did his best to impart that information to us. But more than that he is an entertainer ( a very good one) and that... More

We were lucky enough to find ourselves as the only guests on our tour of Chateauneuf du Pape with Francois. A guide not only to the vines, the vineyards and some excellent cellars, we were entertained both by Francois' knowledge of the area but also with carefully selected music appropriate to the beautiful and dramatic scenery ranging from Puccini to...

So much more than just a wine-tasting tour! Our day with Francois was an informative and very enjoyable day learning about tasting wine, the history of the region, its food, farming practices.... and we got to sample some great wines, have a fantastic lunch at a charming little restaurant, and see sights that we probably would have struggled to find...

Our driver/guide was very good, at both driving and knowledge of the area, history and the wines. The tour was well organised, though being off season I am sure made it even better, and the reception at the wineries was very good. 3 roses were tasted at Tavel with 1 white and 2 reds at Chateauneuf-du-Pape. My only disappointment was... More

What a fun day with Francois! My husband and I had the opportunity to join the group at the very last minute. Not only does Francois share information about wine and the region but he is an entertainer too. He is a safe driver, his van is immaculate and he taught us how to really taste wine! We were able...

This was more than just a wine tasting tour - it was very educational and also entertaining. My wife and I went on the Chateauneuf de Pape tour (Saturday) and it was great - you will get picked up around 9 AM and get back about 5 PM; you'll visit 4 tasting rooms (only small samples at each place so...

This tour was very educational and we learned so much! We got to taste some REALLY good wines and did the tour #4. Francois was one of our favorite parts of the tour! :) He's funny and keeps you entertained the whole time. You can tell he loves what he does and he's even created a few tips to help... More

I was born and grew up in Avignon, and one of the bests things to do there while in vacation is to take the Wines Tours. You wouldn't be disappointed.

This is a very complete wine tour where you will learn everything about Cote du Rhone wines from the soil to enjoying the wine with food. Francois starts with an excellent wine tasting lesson so that guests get a good understanding of the characteristics of wine and how to get the most from drinking. We did Tour No1 and visited...

I took Francois's tour #6 (Châteauneuf du Pape). He began the tour with very good tips on wine tasting. We did tasting in 4 wineries, visited a nice wine museum and had an amazing lunch at Le Verger des Papes for reasonable price. Everybody had a lot of fun and learned a lot about wines!

Thank T M G
