We did Tour 1 Lirac, Tavel et Costières de Nîmes which was absolutely brilliant. Francois was an outstanding tour guide and we learnt a lot from him about tasting and classification of wine. The many suprises he planned along the tour were one of the highlights for me. We were lucky enough to be on a tour with just 4... More

A day out with Francois is a special experience and a "must do" when visiting Avignon. Francois' passion & knowledge for this region and for wine is infectious. 100% recommended!

We booked the Saturday wine tour to the Chateauneuf de Pape region and had one of the best days imaginable with Francois. From the moment Francois picked us up at our hotel, he was entertaining us and teaching us at the same time. Each individual component of the tour was great (the wineries with tastings, the lesson on wine tasting,... More

Our main reason to visit Avignon was to take a wine tour. Francois is rated number 1 and it is no surprise. The most he takes is 6 people and he switches easily between english and french. I had picked the Thursday tour because I wanted to go to Vacqueyras. I had enjoyed wines from the co-operative there. But now... More

Booked a tour to Chateauneuf-du-pape for my wife and daughter (note: children usually not allowed during high season). Francois picked us up and drove us around in a nice clean van. While in the van he talked about the economy of avignon and france, talked to us about winemaking, and his experiences in other countries. We thoroughly enjoyed our conversations.... More

Francois was very knowledgeable and informative yet gave a very lively and enjoyable tour. We tried some very nice wines from a variety of vineyards while also learning how to appreciate and discover the various wine attributes. Along the way we also visited some local historic landmarks and learned about the beautiful surroundings. Thank you Francois.

Doing this tour in february is a great idea. The weather was cool and fresh and it seemed like the two of us were the only tourists around. The actual tour was much more than just wine (and we learnt A LOT) it also gave a great insight into the region in general. The vineyards and wine that we tasted... More
