A highlight of our trip!
Aug 2019
My husband and I couldn't find any interesting excursions with Royal Caribbean so we booked this on Trip Advisor. It was our first time traveling overseas and our first time booking through Trip Advisor and the experience could not have been smoother. We took this tour in August of 2019. We were able to easily connect with our tour guide and the rest of our tour (a family of four). It was so nice to be in a small group where we could ask lots of questions and get a more personal experience. Our tour guide was so knowledgable and shared so much information about the wine, the area, and the culture. The wineries we went to were absolute gorgeous--beautiful views and delicious wine--what more could you ask for? We came with very little background knowledge of the wine making process so it was so fascinating to hear all about it. We got back to the ship with plenty of time to spare. This tour was one of our favorite excursions and I would definitely recommend it, as it is fun, informative, and an amazing value!

Great excursion!
May 2019 • Couples
We went on this tour May 2019 and Stefan was our tour guide. He was a fantastic guide giving lots of information about the region we were in as well as the wineries we visited. The first winery we went to was gorgeous and offered reds, whites, and roses. Then Stefan drove us to Cassis and stopped along the way for breathtaking views and pictures from the second highest cliff in Europe. Then he drove us down to the town area of Cassis where we had free time to explore the area and eat. In the town of Cassis there are ample restaurants along the water and area to shop as well. We then rod to the second winery where we tried a few whites and roses. There wasn’t as much area in this winery to tour compared to the first, but it still had nice views. After our second tasting, Stefan drove us back to our cruise ship with plenty of time to spare. We would highly recommend this tour!

Delightful Wine Tour in the Aix en Provence Region
Oct 2018 • Couples
We were on a cruise that docked in Marseille on October 16th ... there were no shore excursions offered by Royal Caribbean that interested us, so in the course of my research I stumbled across Provence Wine Tours and their shore excursion options for cruise passengers. The idea of a small group winery tour through Provence sounded like perfection and reviews here on Trip Advisor were stellar, so we booked independently and had an amazing day!
Eric, our guide, was waiting for us in the cruise terminal that morning - the weather was cool and rainy, which turned out to be perfect for wine drinking. There were a total of 8 guests, all from the same cruise ship, and we visited two wineries during the day, with a stop at Aix en Provence for a quick lunch. Our first winery stop was Chateau Vignelaure, an estate about 35km from Aix, which was just stunning and which is known as the first to plant Cabernet Sauvignon grapes in Provence. Eric took us on a very thorough and fascinating tour of the winery, including the cellars, and then followed it up with a tasting of four fabulous wines: a white, a rose', and two examples of their cabernet sauvignon blends (2011 and 2004).
We had a quick stop in Aix en Provence for lunch - we were on our own, but asked Eric for a recommendation and his suggestion to try La Belle Epoque was spot on; terrific food and drinks with a charming atmosphere.
Our second winery stop of the day was Domaine de Saint-Ser, a gorgeous vinyard located on a hillside in the Cotes de Provence Sainte-Victoire area. This is a much smaller winery than the first we visited but the product was absolutely delicious and has won numerous awards over the years. We were fortunate enough to try five wines on this stop and enjoyed every one of them, along with discussion from the winery owner.
I really can't say enough good things about this entire experience - the company itself was easy to work with and very friendly when we booked the excursion, Eric was a charming and knowledgeable guide, and our winery stops were both award-winning examples of Provence wines that made us wish we could ship a few cases back home to the US!
If we have the opportunity to visit this region again, we look forward to booking another winery tour to a different area with Provence Wine Tours - we know we will be in good hands.

Wonderful day in Provence
Our cruise ship didn’t have a shore excursion that interested us, so I found this tour on trip advisor and booked it. I received feedback and information from the company immediately along with important port of call info.
When we got to Marseille, our guide Eric, met us in the terminal (we were a small group of 8) and we proceeded to our van for transportation to first winery. Eric was very informative, personable and knowledgeable. He made sure we were comfortable and answered every question we had. The first winery was set in the gorgeous French countryside where we got a tour of the production faculty as well as the beautiful gardens, sculptures and art collection of the owners. The wine tasting was intimate and refreshing.
Next we went to Aix en Provence for a little free time/lunch/shopping. Would liked to have had a little more time here though.
The final winery was smaller but landscapes were breath taking. All in all a wonderful day in Provence!

A most enjoyable and educational day
May 2018 • Couples
Thanks to Fabienne, whose knowledge of the wines of the region was a sound education, we had a most enjoyable day. Met from our cruise ship, we spent many hours being delighted with the scenery and information about the Bandol and Cassis wine regions. If you are on a cruise ship, best to request the ship notify the port authorities of the Provence Wine Tours attendance, or they deny them access to the ship side afrea to pick you up. Makes meeting a little difficult. However we managed and had a fabulous day in Fabienne’s capable hands.

One minor detraction, the timing of lunch made getting space in any decent restaurant a little difficult. If all you need is a sandwich or pizza and a coffee, there is no problem.

We would gladly recommend Provence Wine Tours.

Cassis Provence wine tour Marseille shore excursion-looking for more guests! June 19, 2018
May 2018 • Couples
This tour gets such excellent reviews we would love to go on one but they are so popular they are already booked. :-( Is there anyone out there on RCCL Symphony of the Seas in Marseille on Tuesday June 19th, 2018 looking for a shore excursion (or just in Marseille looking for this type of tour) who would like to start a new group with us for their Cassis/Provence wine tour? Need 2 or more to start a new tour. Touch base with me through trip advisor or directly with Provence Wine Tours.
