We completed the full day Rhone valley tour with Francois in June and had a spectacular day. Francois places as much importance on teaching you how to taste the wines as he does in showing you the wines of the Avignon area. His lessons were fun and informative even for an experienced wine drinker. The wineries visited were superb, including... More

We recently completed two days of tours with the wonderful Francois from Avignon Wine Tours and just had a magnificent experience exploring the wonderful countryside of Provence. Whilst planning our trip, I was unsure of which wine region to explore as neither my travel companions or I had much knowledge of French wine. So glad we found Avignon Wine Tours... More

The wine tour with Francois was one of our favorite activities from a week in southern France. He was very personable, entertaining and knowledgable. We did the Sunday tour to Chautenauf du Pape and realized that we had tried a wine from that area back home, so we asked if he had heard of it. He knew exactly where the... More

My husband and I traveled to France for our honeymoon. Spending the day with Francois was one of the best days of our trip!! We took the Monday tour. Francois was so knowledgeable and entertaining. He had many "surprises". We went to a lovely lunch (one of the best meals I had on our 2 week vacation), and Francois even... More

Francois was the BEST wine tour guide you could ever imagine. He is entertaining - but really knowledgeable and a good teacher. We saw the cobble stones where the vines grow and learned that they are 20 meters deep because of the glaciers. We learned the 6 steps in tasting wine - Wine drinking will never be the same for...

Incredibly knowledgeable and wonderfully personable, Francois provides a wonderful and entertaining tour. We learned to not only appreciate traditional white and red wines of the region, but also how rich and varied the roses can be. On our Monday tour of the Lirac, we were fascinated with the tour of one vineyard that continues the 2000 year old tradition of... More

My wife and I had a great time with Francois, so much so we ended up booking three days in a row! On our advanced request Francois gave us a private tour in the northern Rhone valley, in Hermitage, which I STRONGLY recommend! The vineyards are about an hour drive north of Avignon by car or very nearby the TGV... More

We had both an educational and entertaining day. From the wine tasting lessions, beautiful views of the countryside to the Friday market visit and lunch in a small village, it was all a delight with our host, Francois - a long day but highly satisfying. We found the 6 steps to "proper" wine tasting somewhat complicated but ultimately it was... More

Just came back from the Thursday tour with Francois. It was wonderful! The wines, the scenery, the food and the company made our last day in Avignon so memorable. Francois is charming and entertaining as well as very knowledgable about wines and the area. Don't miss it!

Francois picked us up at our vrbo in St. Remy for a day of touring Chateauneuf du Pape. It was an experience of a lifetime. He was entertaining, knowledgeable, and did he best to make our day enjoyable. He succeeded. We went to a nice little place for lunch and had a great meal (plus a little more wine!). I... More
