A wonderful afternoon in Chateauneuf du Pape! Our guide Benoit was very knowledgeable and authoritative, regaling us with many stories about the area’s long wine-making tradition. The four tasting stops were outstanding; we especially enjoying the tasting in the Roman cellar. The final surprise, a chocolate tasting, was the perfect ending to a lovely afternoon. Merci beaucoup pour tout, Benoît !

Good in theory and spirit, but poor execution. We were a large group and got divided up into two vans. About half way through, my van had to go back to Avignon to pick up people who had booked just a half day tour, resulting in less time for lunch in one of the villages. Since we then had new people, some of the same information was repeated. The two vans had different experiences, timings, and information. Our guide, Jerome, was hustling to give us a good experience and stopped at a few extra sites, which was appreciated. However, we drove around in circles, took short cuts that actually took longer, and it was clear there wasn’t a set established driving route. Also, we were driving waay to fast and still it took 11 hours. Maybe less is more? The website advertised a skip the line experience at Pont de Gard so I thought that included the museum/experience/top of the aquatic-duct, but really it was just access to the site itself. In the end, we did make it to all the sites as advertised, mostly, but it was an experience and a little more finisse is needed.

Nicolas the guide was excellent and very professional. The walking tour was for different places in Avignon, gardens, streets, Restaurantes, buildings and of course Pope’s Palace. He knows Avignon history very good. Congratulations !!

Excellent tour! Nicholas was knowledgeable, amicable, and a great driver. Both stops on the tour were interesting, scenic, and worthwhile. We very much enjoyed the wines that we tasted and also liked being in a smaller, more intimate group for the tour itself. I would absolutely recommend this experience.

Our guide, Natalie,was very knowledgeable, professional and entertaining. She took us on a small group tour from Aix en Provence to the processing plant for L'Occitane then to the picturesque mountainside village of Moustiers-Sante-Marie were we had time to explore and grab lunch. Then on to the Gorges du Verdon. Finally a stop at the lakeside village of Sainte-Croix-du-Verdon. All along the way she educated and entertained us. I would highly recommend this tour. The scenery was spectacular!
