      Meet your english-speaking wine expert guide at 1.30pm in front of our meeting point (centrally located) in Aix en Provence. Your guide will drive you in a clean, comfortable & A/C minivan accommodating up to 8 people maximum. You will arrive around 2.30pm in the wine region of Bandol before heading to Cassis for the 2nd winery. Get a private visit at 2 wineries, family-owned and awarded estates. Taste some deep reds, structured or delicate rosés and elegant whites (about 9 different wines in total). Enjoy 30min free time in the charming fishing town of Cassis. You will be back to Aix en Provence around 6.30pm to the same place where we met at the beginning of the tour. We select different types of wineries in order to offer you the opportunity to see different ways to work. We have developed partnerships allowing us to take you behind the scenes: from the winemaking & aging rooms to the bottling lines, you will see everything! Your guide will also explain you about the soil, the climate, the grape varieties, the famous "terroir" but also the picking, pruning, green harvesting and many other subjects in a relaxed and educational way.

      Wonderful private wine tour with our guide Jean Paul Garcia from Provence Tours
      Jean Gabriel was fantastic and took us to three wonderful wineries in the AiX region. The drive to the various wineries had beautiful scenery Two wineries in the morning followed by lunch at an outside cafe in AiX. After lunch we walked around a bit in AiX with Jean Gabriel pointing out various historical details. Finally we visted the third winery and then back to the ship 4pm. Jean Paul was a great host who really enjoyed sharing his passion for the AiX region abd its wonderful wines. Highly reccomend booking wih Jean Paul.

      We seriously loved this tour!
      What a fabulous tour! We had 7 people total - a very nice size. Our guide, Gabriel, was excellent. He shared history and knowledge about Provence and wines all throughout the tour. I was very impressed. The tour included 2 wineries with a stop where we could choose to get some lunch and then we went to another winery. The town we visited where we could get lunch or shop was charming. We bought wine at two of the three wineries, it was that good. We decided to get a bite to eat and it was great. Overall, I highly recommend it! Gabriel made this tour memorable.

      Fabulous wine tour of Luberon
      This is the small group tour to book. We were a group of 7 in total and were picked up in an immaculate people mover at a location that was easy to find. Eric’s knowledge of Luberon, its wine and people was exceptional. What ever your level of wine knowledge, Eric was able to answer and explain the wines and wine making in an enthralling way. The tour includes 3 wineries which are magnificent for their Architecture, landscape and their story. The wines were mostly affordable and there was something to please the palette of each member on the tour. Eric kindly gave the group the option of a short lunch and walk around or long lunch sampling local produce and wines. We opted to join the Danish gentlemen who had also joined the tour. The afternoon was full of laughter and amazing terrines, fish ceviche, vegetable tart and steak paired with rose and beers. Eric’s being the consummate host, was very caring about everyone’s comfort, learned everyone’s name and shared stories of his life and friends in Luberon. The final winery was exceptional as was the wine and the whole experience.

      All Day Wine Tour around Luberon from Marseille
      Erick, our guide was on time and drove us to the wine region in a new Mercedes mini-van. The scenery was fantastic, especially as we drove through the vineyards. Erick was very knowledgeable, and had a great personality. At the three wineries we visited, we had a total of 16 wines we tasted. We visited the town of Lourmarin for a delicious lunch. I highly recommend this tour.

      Half day with the incredibly knowledgeable host Eric and good wines tasted
      We joined a small group of 6 others on the half day tour from Aix to two Provence wineries and return. Our guide Eric was incredibly knowledgeable and very accommodating, spending a good amount of time explaining the process from grape to bottling. Really interesting behind the scenes tour of the first winery. We tasted six wines at each winery, two of each colour. Albeit not an expert, it was clear the wines themselves varied in quality. Some - in particular the white wines - were not to our taste. From memory they ranged from €8 to €16 a bottle. I’ve been on wine tours before where you’re able to taste premium and exclusive / limited edition wines but it was not the case here as both wineries we visited were commercialised rosé producers. At €85 per person it did seem quite expensive for the quality of wine tasted. Overall, nice half day out with a good group of people and 10/10 fantastic host Eric.

      Travel with a Pro
      Our guide was a former wine sommelier, an excellent driver and had special privileges at the 3 wineries we visited. He educated us along the entire way about the area, wines and private estates we visited.

      Gorgeous morning, amazing wines
      Our wine tour was incredible! It was a nice number of people (only 8) and our guide was awesome-- super knowledgable and took amazing pictures of everyone. And the wine was fantastic! It was an absolutely lovely way to spend a morning in the countryside. I would do this tour again in a heartbeat. Highly recommended!

      1000/10 Recommend!!
      To start, my group and I showed up at the wrong pick up location, and the Provence Wine Tour organizers were extremely patient and understanding. I called them on the phone and they were able to organization a pickup for us to ensure we didn't miss the tour. Our tour guide was an absolutely incredible. This guy was a certified sommelier, and he knew everything there was to know about wine. I mean, I'm talking grape varieties, terroir, and the region's history. He basically turned us into wine nerds in a matter of hours. What was really interesting was how he clued us into the bigger picture: the impact of climate change on wine production. It was like a wine and climate change crash course. He explained the challenges vineyards face and what they're doing to adapt. Very eye-opening. He was also a walking, talking wine encyclopedia, answering all our questions, no matter how silly they seemed. Plus, he had a great recommendation for a restaurant to hit up for dinner, and the food and wine pairings were spot on. I'd jump at the chance to do it all over again, and you should too. Trust me, this tour is a must do when vising the Provence region, and it'll leave you with great memories and a newfound love and appreciation for wine. Cheers to that! 🍷🥂

      Scenic and delicious
      Great tour that provides some lovely views over Cassis and the surrounding bays as well as great in depth knowledge on the region, each vineyard and their wines, and the process to get from the vine to a glass. Eric was welcoming and was able to field every question we had with ease and made the whole thing very relaxed.

      Excellent Wine Tour!
      This is the second time we used Provence Wine Tours and we were just a thrilled as our first time in 2015. This time we had a group of 6 on the tour. Our guide Eric showed us two wineries (which were different from the ones we visited in 2015). Eric shared his vast knowledge of the wine industry in Provence and guided us on how to properly taste and experience the wines offered. He took us to one of our favorite places in Europe - Cassis. The sea side town looked the same as when we were there 8 years ago. We made sure to get the mussels Provencal which were outstanding. Eric was a wonderful guide and we highly recommend Eric and Provence Wine Tours!

    This wine tour of Bandol & Cassis was a great half day outing. My boyfriend and I stayed in Marseilles, but took an early train to Aix-en-Provence and explored the city in the morning. At 1pm, we met our tour guide Stefan and the rest of the group easily - the group is intimate, the perfect size! Our van was spacious and comfortable. We started at a winery in Bandol & received a tour and tasting, and then did the same in Cassis. The wines were fantastic and there is an option to purchase - however you are never pressured to buy anything! Some of the group did, and some didn't. Stefan was extremely knowledgeable about everything wine related and is definitely an expert on the region itself. He was personable & cheerful and made the tour amazing! We were lucky enough to have a great group and had a fantastic time on the tour. After the tour, we had a nice dinner in Aix and headed back to Marseilles. It was a great day!

    Our guide for the half day wine tour to Bandol and Cassis, Stephan, was perfect for this tour. He is extremely knowledgable about the wines of both these areas and provided just the right amount of information for our group. The wines were excellent and we also spent about 1/2 hour in the port at Cassis which was lovely. Stephan is a careful driver and after having experienced other company's tours where this was not the case I was very thankful for his attentive driving. The van was comfortable and seating was spacious. I would definitely recommend this tour.
