We wanted to see the Roman Aquaduct and the arena in Orange, but mostly due to the enthusiasm of Nico, our guide, the entire tour was fun and informative. We know it was the luck of the draw, but we enjoyed the other three people on the tout tremendously. This was our first Viator tour and are now interested in booking other ones.
The wine and chocolate tour included a visit to the Pont du Gard and the Roman Theatre in Orange. The driver and guide Nico was both very informative and friendly. He gave us just the right amount of time at each place and was considerate of our energy levels! He booked us a table at an excellent restaurant in the market at Uzes. This was the best day tour I have ever experienced. Merci beaucoup.
Our guide, Jean-Baptiste, was excellent: knowledgeable, personable, flexible and all around great. He gave us great lessons and insights on wine in general and particularly Rhone Valley wines and some of the towns, villages and estates. This was interspersed with many amusing insights and anecdotes along the way. The only minor issue we had with the tour was that the chocolate part of the tour was merely one stop at a touristy chocolate shop that didn't seem all that special. We had seen a couple of really great boutique chocolate shops in Nimes a couple of days prior and specifically refrained from buying from them because we anticipated much more from the chocolate part of the History, Chocolate and Wine tour we had arranged a few days later. Nevertheless, it was a wonderful day and my friends and I all had a great time and learned a lot.
