If all you did on this tour was taste Taval it would be 5 stars. The rest is icing on the cake.

Small group tour of two wineries. Drive/tour guide was knowledgeable and nice. He picked us up right on time in Avignon and the van was comfortable and had air conditioning. Would recommend.

We really enjoyed this tour mainly because our tour guide Nicolas was very knowledgeable and engaging. He told us interesting history and fun stories. The wineries we visited were very nice and it happened to be the perfect length of tour, as more than 2 tasting locations would have put me to sleep. The scenery was beautiful and we even stopped on the way to take pictures at a historical place with a great view of the valley. I highly recommend this tour if this you are new to Avignon and want to know about the wine and history of the region!

This was an excellent wine tour! Got picked up in nice SUV near hotel. A small group of 7. Saw some amazing scenery, in addition to a great wine tasting at a winery which had a long history. Interesting tour earning about the casks of various size and age. Thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this activity.

Wonderful visit to two wineries. Beautiful countryside. Guide showed us vineyards in addition to going to two different sites. The C-d-P site included an informative tour of the facility.

Excellent tour. Julien was great and gave us a real insider's look at the vineyards and wineries. It was like spending an afternoon with a friend you've come to visit who is proudly showing you around his piece of the world. Both wineries were very interesting and Alexandre was most informative about the process of turning grape juice into fine wine and production of wine barrels as he showed us around Tavel's cellars.

Fabulous tour guide - knew his stuff, was from the region, spoke English well. Kept us moving but didn't rush us.
Stops at Tavel, Chateauneuf du Pape, both great. Fun tastings.

Great Guide and visits to small town and vineyards - and of course tastings! Even brought empty! Chateauneuf-du-Pape bottle designed by artist Pere Anselme home - which caused some raised eyebrows at airport security LOL!

This was a wonderful tour! Our guide was amazing--thoroughly knowledgeable and so helpful. We enjoyed both wineries very much! We were on a Viator tour in 2013 in Epernay which was also wonderful. We will highly recommend Viator to any travelers and look forward to our next Viator experience.

We have enjoyed this trip very much. It is a half day excursion, just not too long and not too short.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable, new several languages and was a very nice person.
We recommend this tour if you happen to be in Avignon.

Loved it. Driver was very informative. Stopped many times so we could take pictures of the beautiful countryside. Wineries we visited were friendly and we loved the rose at Tavel. Would recommend this tour to wine lovers.

The afternoon vineyard tour to Tavel and Chateauneuf du Pape was excellent. The tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, and the tastings were superb. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Avignon. My only regret was not buying any Tavel or Lirac.

This was a wonderful tour! Our guide picked us up at our hotel and for this tour, it turned out, it was only the two of us and one other person. Our guide, Caroline, was very personable, knowledgeable and enjoyable. She also provided a mini-tour of Avignon as we headed out of town toward the wine country. We first went to a Tavel winery which specializes in Rose wines. We tasted three different wines - a white, a red, and a Rose. All were wonderful. The winery guide provided a lot of interesting information about the Cote-du-Rhone wine region. Very informative. After this visit, we headed to Chateauneuf-du-Pape where we went to another winery. At this winery we received a tour of the winery and the various wine aging areas. After the tour, we tasted 4 or 5 different wines - one white and the rest reds. Also very wonderful. Our winery tour guide was very entertaining and lots of fun. All in all a very enjoyable and worthwhile afternoon. I highly recommend it!
