Francois Marcou is a true connoiseur of wine and all things of viniculture. His tours are filled with all things wine which is what his clients want. He picked us up at our B&B in the morning, and then went to pick up the other 4 people with whom we spent the day. After a drive northeast of Avignon, we... More

We were thoroughly delighted with our whole experience with Francois, his delivery was excellent with matching soundtrack and commentary, made us laugh and enjoy the whole day, it was a small group so it felt very personal and we had a great time with the other family on the tour. great introduction to wine tasting and vineyards and would definitely...

My wife and I have traveled all over the world together, and taken plenty of tours from so-called experts. Sometimes they are interesting and sometimes they are experts in their field, but rarely are they both. Francois Marcou, the owner and tour guide of Avignon Wine Tour, is one of the most consummate professionals I have ever had the chance... More

The previous reviews sum up the experience. Francois is a wonderful host and guide. His wine knowledge is excellent but what makes the tour such a success is his ability to also entertain throughout the day. The tastings, and his secret six steps, have helped us learn to appreciate wine even more. The wineries we visited were first class and... More

For wine lovers, novices, designated drivers who are tired of being "designated", all of you! Book a day with Francois, and you will be wishing you booked 2 or 3, or stayed the week. I cannot tell you what a wonderful experience we had roaming the countryside, tasting beautiful wines, eating delicious lunches fit for a king, sightseeing in places... More

A few weeks prior to our recent trip to Provence I came across Avignon Wine Tours on Trip Advisor and contacted Francios. I explained my ideal itinerary and shared with him that I planned to propose to my girlfriend during our tour. Francios put together the perfect day visiting some historic sites around Avignon and Chateauneuf-du-Pape, as well as touring... More

Splendid day of touring the vineyards of Chateauneuf-du-Pape with Francois - but actually an amazing education as well. We learned so much not only about the tasting of wine, classification, but history as well. Wonderful, wonderful day. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

My wife and I are from Canada and booked a full day tour with Francois. Francois picked us up from our B&B at 9:10am. An early start for a wine tour to be sure!! To be honest we weren't sure that an all day wine tour would be sustainable, but as it turned out, Francois made it an extraordinary day.... More
