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

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.

Francois was great. Friendly, informative, entertaining and he gives points for answers to questions, but remember the rules are made up,but the points don't matter. Seriously, Francois know wine, knows Provence and is a fabulous host.

On a recent trip to France, my husband and I were caught up in the chaos of the French rail strike. As independent travelers, we found this very stressful. However, by the time we reached Avignon, our final destination, we found the perfect antidote for our stress. We went on a day-long excursion with Avignon Wine Tours, presided over by... More

We only had a few days in Avignon and were unsure whether to spend a precious day taken up with a full day tour. Thank heavens we did! Francois's tour is just wonderful. He is a great host, a thoroughly entertaining showman, an extremely wise and knowledgable expert on all things wine. Once you learn his "6 steps" your approach... More

Went on our 1st wine tour with Francois 7 years ago and promised ourselves we would do another if visiting Avignon. So pleased we did, a great day again, wonderful lunch (Thursday tour) scenery amazing and good fun. Booked via email, prompt response and pick up directly from our hotel. Thank you Francois and good luck with your future plans.
