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

Avignon Wine Tours was hands down the best decision I've made for a holiday excursion. A group of six of us stayed in Barbentane, a short drive from Avignon but David collected us from the house so we could enjoy a day of wine tasting. From the start, his charm and jokes had us in a jolly mood. David gave... More

What an amazing experience. We learnt so much with Francois and would recommend his tour to any and everyone. This tour was not about tasting wine rather an experience in the wine industry....from the classification of French wines, the growing of the vines to the subtleties of the senses and the impact wine has on all of them. We will... More

My review is long over due. I've had the pleasure of enjoying five wine tours with Francois. They get better each time! As an avid wine enthusiast and aspiring sommelier (I've nearly completed my studies) - I cannot say enough about Francois and his wine tour. The tour is a perfectly balanced combination of wine, scenery, education, culture, food, and... More

Francois is a treat! He will regale you with stories of Avignon, teach every thing you need to know to appreciate wine, he will feed you an excellent lunch, show you amazing sites, remind you to hold your glass by the stem only, get you a bit tipsy, test your knowledge of opera, provide you with door to door service,...

First and foremost Francois is passionate about wine. He is the consummate professional yet incredibly entertaining. Francois picked us up at 9:00 am at the Avignon Tourist office and we were dropped off at just after 6:00, so spent over nine hours with Francois. Francois took us into the vineyards of Chateauneuf du Pape and explained the rocks and geographical... More
