Excellent half day tour, Roman theatre in 'Orange' followed by wine tour Chateau nerve du pape, well worth the money, guide excellent, wine tasting even better. Learnt a lot about wine, as it was our first wine tasting tour.
Really enjoyed this trip. I love wine, but had little knowledge of French wine. This tour helped to educate me, and I walked away with a greater understanding. Plus, the wine was delicious and the area was beautiful. I am very glad I signed up for this.
We were met promptly at 8:45 by Julien, a young man who grew up in Avignon. He was extremely pleasant, spoke very good English and had a wonderful sense of humour. There was six of us on this tour (four in our group) and it was wonderful chatting with the other two ladies. We arrived promptly at the Winery however had to wait for the other tour groups, which was fine as it gave us time to look around ourselves. The tour in the winery was excellent and very worthwhile . The tour guide in the winery was incredibly knowledgeable and showed a passion for wine making. We sampled three wines at Chateauneuf-de-Pape and then went to Brote where Julien our guide described the wines after we went through a small museum of historical wine-making equipment. This was my favourite part of the tour as it was just the six of us along with Julien. We sampled three more wines and were able to talk amongst ourselves about the tastes, etc. rather than in the large group at the first winery ...where of course there are always those people who need to let know how knowledgeable they are! Definitely would go on this tour again, especially if our guide was Julien.
Extremely pleasant and knowledgeable courier and tour really good.
Fabulous day at two wineries with very knowledgable and friendly people. I loved the small group size and convenience of being picked up from our hotel! Wine in Provence? What's not to love?
Excellent. Our guide arrived on time at the prearranged location. Her english was very good and the wine tasting locations very interesting. Great tour and highly recommended.
We enjoyed our tour very much, particularly the Skalli winery and the brief stop in the town of Chateauneuf du Pape. Madeleine was a fantastic tour guide!
I went alone and had a wonderful time. The guide made things so easy for us. It was a magical day.
Our guide, Vanessa, was amazing! Great tour of the area and the wine tastings were fun :)
We had a very knowledgeable guide, and I had a good time.
Great tour guide and great tour stops, but even though the title states wine-tasting day trip, the focus was not wineries or wine tasting. There was one stop out of about 4 tour stops that was at a winery.
Truly disappointed with this tour. The description is a half day wine tour and we only went to one winery (for 1 hour). The rest of the tour was spent traveling to a historical sites.
