Great wine tour

Francois is number 1 for a reason! My husband and I had such a wonderful experience! We did the Wednesday tour of Chateauneuf du Pape, but Francois described others that seemed just as wonderful. It was Provençal scenery at it's best with such interesting vineyards. Francois was great entertainment the whole time. He had specific music for each moment of... More

Francois, our host, shared his excellent knowledge and clear passion of both the local region and the wines they produce in a fun and interesting way. An excellent day - highly recommended.

We took the tour to Chateau Neuf Du Pap and it was the highlight of many surprises I planned for my husband's 60th birthday. Entertaining, exciting, educational and it taught us first and foremost to appreciate the wine through his 6 steps in wine tasting. We definitely learnt a lot more on how to choose our wine. Francois was lovely,... More

We spent a most interesting and informative day with Francois of Avignon Wine Tours. His knowledge of wine and local geography was impressive, and he delivered the information in a humorous, entertaining way. Although advertising himself as 'French', he clearly understood the cultural differences of the many nationalities who might take his tour. A terrific way to experience the Avignon... More

Francois clearly loves what he does, and truthfully there is nothing more contagious then spending time with someone who is in love with showing off the wines and the region he loves most. He made the day fun by creating a sound track of music to enhance the experience. We also love learning and Francois offered a wealth of knowledge... More

We came off of a Viking River Cruise and decided to spend an additional four days in France. At our son and daughter-in-laws recommendation we decided to spend our time in Avignon with day trips. They had recommended Francois's wine tour and we are so glad we decided to do it. First of all our group was eight adults which... More

Francois offers five different wine tours (Wednesday and Saturdays are the same- Chateauneuf du pape), and we took all five! The first tour was to the Tavel area and it was pouring rain! The weather doesn't affect the wine tasting, and we had a great time. The other tours were in nicer weather, and just as much fun(we enjoyed the... More
