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

Francois, the guide and owner of Avignon Wine Tours is professional, experienced, full of knowledge of wines and the wine industry with a great sense of humor. We loved our tour and the experience. We visited several wineries with excellent wines. If you want to buy a bottle at the vineyard, it's excellent value but there is no pressure. The... More

We booked this tour on a Rick Steve's recommendation, and it was the most informative wine tour we have ever been on (having travelled through numerous wine regions around the world). We spent the day with David, a French sommelier, who returned home to Avignon after many years working at high-end restaurants around the world. David was a wealth of... More

So we booked Francois for 2 days. His love of the region is infectuous. its really more than a wine tour. Its a great wine tour that celebrates the beauty and culture of the region. You may think you can do this on your own...but you will miss a great experience if you pass up Francois and Avignon Wine Tours.

We just finished a day of wine tasting in the Chateauneuf du Pape region with Francois. We learned a great deal about how French wines are categorized, how to read the label, and most importantly how to taste them. It was both informative and fun. As ours was a Chateauneuf du Pape tour, we learned a lot about this type... More
