“Excellent Experience and Very Informative”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

While visiting Aix-en-Provence, my husband and I toured 2 wineries with Marion, our guide from Provence Wine Tours. We were very impressed by Marion's informative and educational program, and we were pleased with all the wines we sampled. Due to a dismally rainy day and a cancellation in our tour party, we ended up with a private tour, and we had a great time exploring the surrounding area of Provence, including 2 of its reputable wine producers. Marion was very friendly and answered all of our questions patiently and thoroughly. We have toured wine-producing regions in both Italy and California prior to this, and we agreed that Marion's tour taught us the most about appreciating--and recognizing the nuances of--good wine. Highly recommended!

“It was a very nice experience.”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

With the half-day tour program, we visited two wineries - (alledgedly) one very well-known, and the other small, organic, more like family-businese like. At the first one (the former), we learned the wine-making process and really looked around the winery; while at the second (the latter) we only tasted different wines.
It was quite educational and interesting. My husband and I enjoyed a lot.

“Great wine experience”
Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

We had a wine trip to two wineries from Marseille. We had a great time with our guide Marion: we traveled along Provence landscapes, discovered the peculiarities of wine making process, visited cellars, tasted different wines. We'll certainly repeat it next time we'll get to Provence.

“Great Fun”
Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

Marion is a delightful, friendly person. We visited two wineries and there was no limit on how much wine we could taste. In fact, we tasted many more wines than we had expected. The only downside to this tour was that we were given only two hours to wander around Aix en Provence. Given that we had to eat lunch after all that morning drinking, there wasn't much time left to sightsee.

“1/2 day tour great value”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

We had a fabulous 1/2 day tour with Marion around Bandol and Cassis. Whether you are a wine novice or conissuer the tour is very informative and worthwhile. Both wineries we visited had great wines of course, and the staff were good fun to chat to also! Highly recommend this tour!
