Caroline was an exceptional host, very knowledgeable and attentive. We visited 3 chateaus, all of which were quite different experiences highlighting the various approaches to wine production, and their impact on taste explained in detail during the tasting sessions. Caroline showed us how to properly taste and discover the full flavours of the wines, which was very enlightening. Overall, a great day and a tour which we highly recommend! Thanks Caroline (from Ecosse)!

We had a wonderful day. Our guide Jean-Jacques picked us up in Cotignac and took us on a tour through the wines and landscape of Provence. With an extensive knowlegde of the cultural history of the area in general and of the local wines in particular, he gave us a great introduction to the tasting and production of wines and to the wine related history in the area. With a few surprises during the day and delicious lunch on one the chateaus it All added up and resulted in an excellent experience.

Spent a week with my parents in Cannes. We did this tour as my father has difficulty walking. This tour was perfect, our guide had a box to get in and out of the van and helped my father every step of the way and did not rush us. His knowledge of wine and wine making really impressed us and took the time to explain the making process which hasn't happened on a lot of tours we have taken. This is a must do tour if you like wine

My husband and I did a shared wine tour from Nice to Provence. Our tour guide Hélène was warm, welcoming and very friendly. There were a total of 8 people on the tour. We were touring in the midst of a heat wave in France. We were all taken in a van and drove about an hour out to begin the wine tours. The van only has air conditioning in the front row, so people in the 2nd and 3rd rows got very hot. During the first two vineyards, we would taste wine and then walk around the property. It’s not comfortable to walk around after having alcohol in the middle of very hot temperatures, but this was done at every vineyard we went to, up hills, stairs, and even once parking on the side of the road to look at Roman ruins. After the second wine tasting, we were given a cold lunch consisting of 3 pieces of meat (similar to salami/prosciutto), 3 pieces of cheese, a cold egg tart, salad and a cold tomato soup. This cost an extra 27euro. I would have preferred more variety or at least information about the planned lunch. It was clearly overpriced given the food served. I think it would’ve been better if the itinerary was adjusted due to the heat as it made the experience much more uncomfortable. Then we rode back in the hot van for an hour. It also would have been great to know how long the tour would be, as we left at 0930 and didn’t get back until 1830. Nine hours in the heat left us both quite exhausted and that was not how we planned on spending our last day in France.

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to write your review of your experience. Firstly, we are sorry that your experience was anything other than excellent, the standard that we strive to achieve. Naturally, we are very pleased that you recognised the qualities of Helene as your guide – being someone who is by nature warm, welcoming and very friendly. Helene is qualified sommelier, with a passion for the wines of Provence, and we know that we can always count on her to give of her best on every tour that she leads. On the specific points that you raise: 1. The van that you were driven is our back-up vehicle, and was only put into service due to a technical problem with one of our other vehicles. As you rightly say, it does have A/C, but it’s not the system is not very powerfull. This was of course exacerbated by the heat wave conditions that you rightly mention – over which we naturally have zero control. We are very sorry that you didn’t get to be in one of our “regular” fully A/C vehicles, as this seems to have been the single biggest problem on your day out with us. In the event – it was either use this vehicle, or be faced with having to postpone/cancel your tour – and perhaps we took the wrong option? Only you can judge that. 2. With regard to the cold platter lunch, this is provided and served by Chateau Saint Martin, to whom you paid the price of 27€. In the description of the tour, we say in the section “Not Included” [in the price of the tour] that “Lunch is available at one of the vineyards, or in a local medieval Provencal village - budget from 25€ per person.” 3. In previous seasons, the vast majority of our guests who have had the cold platter/buffet lunch at Saint Martin have enjoyed it. This is especially so, given that the fixed price also includes plenty of wine to accompany your lunch (your choice of the same Cru Classé wines that you have enjoyed during the tasting), desert and coffee. We will be raising the point that you make about the choice, variety and value-for-money with the owner of the vineyard, in order to help them to improve this offering. Naturally, we want our guests to feel fully satisfied with their lunch. 4. As far as the length of the tour is concerned, it is stated in the description that it lasts “8 to 9 hours”. The departure is at 09.30am as you said, so an 18.30 drop off time is not over-running the expected timetable. Obviously, there does have to be some flexibility built in to the timetable, as there are elements that we do not control – e.g. traffic conditions, weather, occasional late arrivals of guests at the morning pick-up, etc. However, we note your valid point about adapting the tour, in this case, to the weather conditions. Again, this is something that we do try to do as a matter of course when the circumstances require it. If you come back to the Riviera again sometime, please do get in contact with us directly via our website and we’ll be delighted to suggest some other vineyards that you might like to visit, and also do everything in our power to ensure that you have the type of experience that is befitting a tour by Azur Wine Tours. A bientôt!

The Azur Wine Tour is a fantastic wine tour of the Cotes de Provence region in southern France. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our wine tour with Raphael, who was incredibly knowledgable about wine making, the Provence region, and French culture and history. We were picked up directly from our hotel in Antibes and toured and enjoyed tastings at 4 vineyards - the wines were great and the views surrounding the vineyards were beautiful. The region is primarily known for their rose wines, but the reds are particularity good and we bought several bottles to take home with us. We opted for the restaurant lunch (not included in the price) and had an amazing lunch in a medieval town over-looking the lush mountain side. This tour is better than any of the other tours that we have been on in Napa/Sonoma, NY, or in Greece. Overall, we thought that the wine tour was great fun, and I would highly recommend this tour for a day to learn and sample some wonderful wines from the Provence region.

We were on a cruise to celebrate my 50th birthday, and decided to plan our own excursion for my birthday. I am so glad we did. Rapheal picked us up right at the port, to begin our day. Because we were in Villefranche, and had to be back on the ship by 5:00 pm, we could only visit 3 vineyards instead of the usual 4. But oh what wonderful vineyards they were! The wines, especially the rosés. We also managed to have lunch at an amazing restaurant named Auberge de Deux Pins. Rapheal took such great care of us, he was professional, friendly, knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. I was skeptical to plan such a special day, based on reviews on a website, but I am so thrilled that I did. It was everything and so much more than I could ever have imagined. Thank You Raphael for giving me such wonderful memories on my 50th birthday.

We recently took a trip to Nice, France and booked a tour of wineries in nearby Provence with Azur Wine Tours. We were picked on on-time by our host, Raphael. Being a winemaker himself, he was quite knowledgeable about the art of making wine and took us to some of the finest wineries in the area. He was very personable and spoke fluent English. Our lunch stop was a great location in a perched village overlooking the mountains. I would absolutely book this tour again if I returned to the area. Don't miss out!

This was an an amazing experience for my entire family. We even brought our children who sampled juices and treats. Peter, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the region, wine making process and the wine characteristics for each bottle we tried (and there were many!). I would highly recommend this company. It was a memorable experience for all!

So happy my girlfriend and I chose to do this wine tour. Our tour guide Yannick was super knowledgable with 17 years of experience in the wine industry. We visited Château Font du Broc first, Château Saint-Martin second (where we had a tasty prearranged lunch), and Château Saint Roux third. The first and third are organic wineries, while the second still adheres to respectable and traditional practices. I listed these out so folks were aware that you could visit different wineries from what is explained in the description.

I learned so much on this tour, from general wine tasting techniques to the styles and practices that are common in the Provence region. Yannick did a fantastic job explaining everything to us, and he definitely knew what he was talking about.

I would highly recommend this tour option to friends.

My wife and I spent a week in France and the highlight was Raphael's tour. The wineries selected are terrific and Raphael is an A+ guide. While he is fluent in English and French, his strongest asset is knowledge. We learned more on this trip than all others combined...and the presentation of the knowledge is without prevention or ego. We highly recommend this for anyone in the Nice area, especially English-speaking travelers. Great scenery, great wine, great food and an exceptional value at 90 euros.
