The tour was completely as advertised. We had the right amount of time in Orange and the wine tour was great for a first-time wine tasting. It was a relaxing afternoon but we also saw a great deal. Our guide was very knowledgeable both about the items on the tour and more generally in answering our questions about the Avignon area. She used perfect English and also was very patient in letting us practice our French.
Great tour. Our tour guide Emilie was very informative and sweet. She picked us up from the hotel and we saw Orange and the vineyards of Chateauneuf de Pape and had a very nice wine tasting at one of the wineries. I recommend this tour
The Roman arch and ancient theater in Orange are wonderfully preserved and important to see. The theater has a very good audio guide that comes with the tour. We enjoyed the tastings at the working winery and also the visit to ruins of the Pope's old chateau. Our guide Julian was excellent, fun, helpful.
It was good, and the tour guide quite helpful. I really would have preferred to have a wine tasting at several wineries in Chateauneuf du Pape, but that was not an option.
Wine and antiquity. What a combination! We thought the tour was fantastic.
Virginia was our tour guide and she was WONDERFUL! We loved our experience. Thank you!
Excellent tour. Vanessa was a great guide and tour was pitched just right to cover a lot without rushing
Extremely enjoyable - a really helpful guide and a very good tasting at CNduP but the theatre at Orange was magnificent well worth the money
My wife and I enjoyed this trip very much. Our tour guide was wonderful (our 2nd trip with her) and knowledgable. We think that such short or full day trips are the best way to see many local sites in an efficient, comfortable and relaxed way.
Tour guide was professional, cheerful, engaging, and knowledgeable about the sites visited. The tour was conducted promptly (pick up and drop off, keeping to schedule). The size of the group was just right (8, including our party). I would highly recommend this tour and the guide, Virginie. We had a wonderful time.

We really liked our tour to Orange and Chateauneuf du Pape. Our tour guide,Virginie, was just great! She was friendly and she answered all questions.We enjoyed the wine tasting and visting Orange. We recommend this tour to anyone.
The tour of the countryside and theatre were fantastic but the Chateauneuf du Pape was even better. The wines were great and the sommelier was not only knowledgeable but friendly and funny.

This trip turned out to be even better than expected! It was a nice sized small group and guide. Everyone was nice and friendly and from all over the world. We ended up seeing, and tasting, more than we had hoped and had a great time! Would recommend this tour and Viator in general, great stuff!
This was a very good trip. We enjoyed the visit to chateau neuf particularly. Our guide was knowledgeable and able to give lots of information about the area. There were plenty of photo opportunities.
We had a wonderful host and had a great time! We had just expected to visit a more countryside-like village area, but still enjoyed walking through the small town.
Really great tour run by a very friendly and informative guide! We loved the trip to Orange and the Antique theatre was a welcome surprise - definitely recommended for all history buffs. We would possibly have liked the wine tasting section to be a little more in depth and longer, but Marion made full use of our time and even took us on a slight detour home, as we had a little time left. Thanks again Marion!

This trip was short and sweet - just a quick stop in Orange at the Roman amphitheater, and a drive through the Chateauneuf-du-Pape vineyards followed by a stop at a wine cellar & shop with a quick lesson and tasting. We thought it was well timed, and of course the scenery was fantastic. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgeable, and obviously passionate about wine.

Orange was great! Spent just the right amount of time that allowed us to fully explore the ancient theatre and even visit the museum. It wasn't rushed like many of the other day trips were. We only visited one winery, which was a disappointment. I had hoped that we would experience more wineries than that.

The guide was excellent. She was informative and friendly. We spent just the right amount of time at each location. Definitely fun and informative.

The tour was very nice, and the guide was very gentle. The roman theater in Orange is simply fantastic: immense and very well preserved. I liked the visit to Chateauneuf du Pape, although I'd imagined we would have more contact with the cellars and the production.
My husband and I really enjoyed trip to the Theatre of Orange and the wine tasting at Chateauneuf du Pape. The wine tasting was very professionally conducted and I felt like I learnt a lot more about wines. However, these are places that are easily accessible by car, so if you are in the mood for driving, there may be no need to sign up for this tour.
The Roman Theater in Orange is really spectacular. Wine tasting at a Chateauneuf winery was fun owing to the reputation of the area. Our guide was not as good as we expected. She sent us in to the Roman Theater in Orange and left us for 1 1/2 hrs on our own. It would have been so much better to have heard from her about the history and events. The audio guide was OK, but you can't ask it questions and you can't adapt it for the interest of those on the tour. Same thing at Chateauneuf - she could have added greatly to the tour by being there instead of leaving us.
