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

This was our second wine tour with Francois. The first one we did in 2010 was his Luberon tour and our most recent one was his Chateauneuf du Pape tour. Francois is delightful and educational. He is very knowledgeable about wine and also about the countryside in Provence. His day of teaching about wine is enriched by his outgoing personality,... More

I've done wine tours in many places (all over the U.S., several in France and a few in Italy). Francois was without a doubt the best guide/host yet! He took us to some fantastic wineries, an amazingly delicious lunch and kept us entertained all day. I highly recommend Francois to anyone...he seems to be a celebrity throughout Provence. Everywhere we... More

Merci Beaucoup to Francois for an "unforgettable" wine tour in Chateauneuf du-Pape. Francois, a sommelier, has insider knowledge of wine and a humorous and unpretentious way of sharing his passion. We visited 4 wineries, a museum and experienced an amazing gourmet lunch at Le Verger Des Papes. Highly recommended. We hope to tour with Francois again some day.

We love Francois! We did his Monday tour, which is fantastic. This tour includes Roman Ruins such as the Pont du Gard, which is a nice way to break up a day of 4 wineries + lunch. Francois has been working in the food and wine industry for many years, so he truly understands good hospitality (in addition to being... More

We had the best wine education and wine experience ever in Chateauneuf du Pape. Francois engaged our group mixing culture, knowledge and humor. Wine tours elsewhere can learn much from Francois. He has passion for the Rhone Valley and its wines and wine industry. He throughly cares for his customers. We can't recommend Francois and Avignon Wine Tours any higher.

I recommend this wine tour for numerous reasons. You get picked up and dropped back at your hotel. The guide, Francois, makes sure he keeps the groups small so he can give individual attention (we were 4 in our case). He's great fun to be around, always cracking us up. He took us to 4 vinyards, whose produce always skim... More

And ofcourse with wonderful French music. We will come back for sure and advise all our friends to... More

It has been a couple of years since our wine tour. While looking it up for a friend recently, I read some of the reviews. We have had tours in at least a half dozen places around the globe. Bar none, I am convinced that this tour was THE BEST WINE TOUR WE WILL HAVE ENJOYED IN OUR LIFE! It... More

I would thoroughly recommend taking a wine tour with Francois. My wife and I did the Chateaneuf-du-Pape tour, and it turned out to be a very personal one since it was just the two of us.Francois certainly knows all there is to know in the wine department, and obviously enjoys passing on that knowledge to others, and makes it all...
