I did the Avignon Wine Tour on Friday which goes to the vineyards and tasting rooms around Baux de Provence. It's the quiet season for Provence which meant the wine tasting rooms where largely empty which granted an exceptional experience. It's obvious that Francois (the guide, owner, operator) is well respected by the vineyards that we visited. This tour was... More

François' wine tour is fantastic. François delivers a comprehensive, yet very understandable tour from the moment he greets you until he delivers you back to your destination. His knowledge of vineyards, wine tasting, and wine appreciation is extensive. But it's his familiarity of and love for the Côtes-du-Rhône area, his contacts at the vineyards, and his relationship with the community... More

Francois is a fantastic guide. My wife and I had an amazing day touring the vineyards of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. This is by far the best wine tour I have been on. We hope to return to Avignon and go on another tour with Francois.

This was an amazing way to spend a full day of our honeymoon in Provence. We took the full-day tour of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The guide:François = perfect English, funny, knowledgeable, and great music choices in the van. Full of surprises, he could not be a better guide. He has years of experience in the business and his wife is an enologist.... More

Francois led us through the Chateauneuf Du Pape wine region. He is a wealth of information and made the trip both exciting and educational. I highly recommend a day with Francois.

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
