Richard is a knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide, very ably assisted by the lovely Corrine. We visited 2 vineyards and enjoyed the tastings at both. Richard was even kind enough to drop off some forgotten purchases the next day to our door.
Richard was a fantastic tour guide. He presented in-depth knowledge of the Bandol area and the winemaking process from the planting of the grapes to the enjoyment of the wine. The lunch was at a beautiful French restaurant in a quiet French village. The food...More

Hi, this full day tour starts at 9.30-9.45 at the dock in Bandol where your ship's tenders come in. Bandol is too little a port to take your ship so you all come in on the ship's tenders. This is right in the centre of town. We will get back around 4 or so to the same point so you will have plenty of time for a potter around the town. Hope this helps!
