We loved the tour and all that it included. Perfect combination of wine tasting , quaint villages, and historical landmarks. We covered a lot of ground in one day.

The best way to see Provence in a day. A long day, but full and enjoyable. Our tour guide was excellent I appreciated that she didn't "perform" and really just talked to everyone and was interactive. LOVED the tour and tasting at Chateauneuf du Pape - our hostess was wonderful. A lot of driving, but it was beautiful.

Our guide, Caroline, was very informative and friendly. The wine tasting was exceptional. We never would have seen so many things if we were navigating with a GPS ourselves. It gave my husbanddriver a day off to just appreciate the sights. I give it an A.

Our tour guide was amazing. She did her very best to get us from site to site quickly and safely. The places she took us were fabulous and unforgettable. The wineries she took us to were great they talked to us and showed us around. The atmosphere was unbelievable. Thank you so very much for providing such a wonderful service.

Our tour through the Provence wine country and villages was one of the highlights of our trip. Our guide was wonderfully friendly and knowledgeable. We saw some breathtaking sights such as the cliff-side village of Gordes as well as two great wineries, where we were educated on wine and even the history of Chateauneuf du Pape. During the drives to the different sites, the guide kept pointing out landmarks and spouting so many facts; I was thoroughly impressed. Very much worth our money, and we would do it again.

This tour is great for weary travelers. Leave the driving to the locals and enjoy. We were alone for the AM leg, so we got to decide just how long we would spend at the different sites. The PM leg was a little more rigid but still loose enough to get a decent visit. I have motion sickness but it was not a problem (just lucky?) even though there was lots of driving involved.

The title indicates a wine tour, but in reality it was 2 wineries followed by nearly all the same stops found on the Provence in One Day trip offered. Slightly disappointing, not because of the guide or tour, but because it was not the 'wine tasting' we were expecting.

The guide was great for the morning part with the wine tasting. Then we had to sit on a bus for 2 hours whilst we dropped people off and picked more people up to see the rest of the tour. Why couldn't they drop us off in Avignon so we could have lunch whilst they did this???? We ended up haveing lunch at 2:30pm and were starving so had 10minutes to see Gordes - not good. The guide had no input at all for the afternoon vists to Gordess, Le Baux de Provence (needed at least 2 hrs there not the 45 minutes given) and Pont du Gard. Very lacking afternoon part just dropped us off at the towns and said to wander. Why couldn't the wine tasting be in the afternoon - much better to drink wine at 2pm than at 10am!!!!

We were disappointed that we only visited two wineries when your on line catalog stated 3 to 4 wine tastings.

Our tour guide was great and extremely helpful! I did, however, think the tour was not worth the amount of money as we only had less than 1 hour in each town after the wine tour--which was the first half. I figured since the tour was a total of 10 hours and we only visited 3 places in the afternoon, we would have more time in each, not realizing how far away each place was. This meant that a lot of time was spent in the car driving to the destinations, only to jump out, rush around, and be back in about 40 minutes. Very pretty towns, though, and a great guide at our wine tour.
