We can understand why Francois is a top rated tour. My wife and I enjoyed our first day with him so much in Chateauneuf-du-Pape that we booked a second for the Luberon. Francois has a clear love for the Avignon region, and deep relationships with area winemakers. Given the depth and focus of his long career in the restaurant and... More

In September (2016) we took Tour #4 with Francois, and we are still talking about our great experience. Francois taught us a lot about wine, and he took us on an incredible journey through the vineyards of the beautiful Rhone Valley. Francois is both a teacher and an entertainer. We really enjoyed the restaurant he picked for lunch, and the... More

We took our third and fourth tours with Avignon Wine Tours this week. It was our first Monday and Tuesday tours with Francois. Both were excellent with wine, food, sightseeing, and commentary. Francois keeps you entertained during the day. The Tuesday tour through the beautiful Luberon was great even without wine. There is a lower fee during the winter and... More

This was our second wine tour with Francois - why go with anyone else as he is the best! This trip we went to the Luberon and its environs - Menerbes, Bonnieux, etc. Francois provides an excellent education in all things wine. Food pairings, food recipes, and a stop at a great restaurant for - food! All things considered, it... More

Francois picked My Wife and I promptly as scheduled for a full day of private wine tastings (four wineries) in Chateauneuf du Pape with a tour of the Chateau and Chateauneuf winery country side. He went into detail on the art of growing, making, tasting and appreciating wine with a lot of fun. Lunch was at Le Verger du Pape,... More

This was an outstanding tour. I have been on wine tours all over the world and Francois met the most important test. When we went to the chateau the help all knew him, he was able to take us all over and get us the best tastings. It made you feel like you were on a real tour and a... More

Francois is one of the most delightful men I've ever met! My friends and I spent an enjoyable day learning about the wine's of the region, tasting, singing and laughing our way through Chateaus and vineyards. His knowledge and passion for wine and food is incomparable. I highly recommend his tour. You will spend a day you will never forget!

My husband and I did 2 days of wine tasting with Francois--the La Vallee du Luberon and Cairanne, Gigondas, & Beaumes de Venise. We wanted to enjoy wine and leave the driving to someone else. What we got was a fun filled day, seeing lots of the countryside and places we wouldn't have gone. My husband and I have traveled... More

My sister and I were lucky enough to have 2 days of wine touring with Francois. He picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel, and we spent 2 days learning about the steps to wine tasting, how to properly open a bottle of wine, and visited charming, remarkable wineries when they were just beginning harvest. Francois is... More
