My husband and I went on the Avignon wine tour with Francoise and we are so glad that we did. Francoise was informative, funny, and attentive. We had a great time with our fellow tour guests as Francoise lead us around the beautiful region between tastings. I walked away from the tour with some new knowledge about wine and had... More

I was able to attend a tour with Francois during my brief stay in Avignon at the end of July. Francois picked me up at my accommodation and along with the rest of the group we learned about wine, visited beautiful vineyards and towns, had enjoyable conversations and one of the best lunches that I had during my stay in...

Francois brought us to four wineries in southern Provence. I simply cannot speak highly enough about his tour, explanations, knowledge and stories. I was originally hoping to visit some CDR vineyards and was slightly disappointed that Friday's were for a different set...until we went. The tour included a local market at a small Provence village, an introduction to several new... More

We have done numerous wine tours in different countries over the last few years with this one being by far the best! Francois is a great host and takes time to let you experience and learn how to taste wine. The tour included a great restaurant and scenic route. I would strongly recommend that if you are looking for a... More

When he picked us up in the morning I did not know Francois. After a day touring Chataneuf-de-Pape with him, he is now my friend. He is a passionate oenophile who has found his calling in life and is clearly living his dream. I've been on a number of wine tours, and this one was more educational, entertaining, and enjoyable...

François was a superb host, contrary to the ridiculous 1* rating I had read, his knowledge was superb and so was the wine. I could not recommend him enough and we intend to come back and work our way through all of his tours, as so should you!

We were a group of 5 and we all had a wonderful time. Francois was highly entertaining and also very very informative. We were all novices with wine and now know so much more. We visited 4 wineries plus had lunch at Restaurant Provencal & Cave. This was one of best meals of our trip and Francois ate with us... More

I'm sure Francois is a good tour guide...however he totally forgot about our booked tour! I contacted him via email about a month prior to visiting Provence and arranged a tour of Chateauneuf du Pape for the 6 of us (3 couples). I mentioned that he did not need to pick us up from our hotel as we were staying... More

Everything everyone else has said about Francois is correct. His tour is entertaining, informative, and enjoyable. We learned more about wine and wine tasting in a day than we had learned in our collective 100 plus years of living. Very accessible for the non wine expert, the scenery is great, and the company excellent.

This was one of the highlights of our holiday in Provence. Francois was extremely professional and charming. The lunch stop was one of the best meals of our stay. I cannot recommend Avignon Wine Tours highly enough.
