We had the best time and the guide was wonderful. Lunch at the castle was very good and the wineries had marvelous wines to taste. I would do this tour again. Before the tour I e-mailed Viator about parking and was given several options. I was a little skeptical that they would reply but they did promptly and with good information. This was test for us and they passed with flying colors. We will use them on other trips in the future.

Great tour! Thierry was great, and we learned a lot. We changed one winery to another since it was crowded, which was a good move, and then he added a fifth winery for us to try. Highly recommend.

Our Tour Guide, Jacques, was great awesome sense of humor and knew his wine and vineyards. Went to two smaller vineyards prior to lunch fabulous! and Chateauneuf du Pape visit. Jacques wanted to take us to more, but we finally were totally satiated with all the different grape varietals. Wonderful trip!!!

There were only four on our tour. Our driver/guide, Terry, was very knowledgable and accommodating. We visited serveral wineries and tasting rooms for a good variety of wines in the area. We had lunch at a lovely hotel in the garden overlooking vines and olive trees. I highly recommend this tour.

Thierry met us in front of the Avignon Tourist Office, in total there were 3 groups and 5 people total. Thierry made the introductions and did a magic job of making everyone feel like they knew each other for years. Theirry's knowledge of the region, terroir and wines of Provence is vast. We learned so much! Theirry's choice for our lunch spot was fantastic! This day was the best of our 3 week trip to Europe... thanks to Thierry!

Absolutely amazing tour, a must for not only wine lovers but anyone curious about the region, it's history and customs.
JB, our tour guide and a local to the region, was a wells of knowledge.
Wine expert himself, JB was, in a very entertaining manner , telling us about the wine also explaining the history of why the wine laws and traditions the way they are today.
The lunch was such a pleasant surprise! Set in a historical Chateau , great food and service.
Overall, that day was one of the most memorable experience we had in our Italy-France vacation this year.

Its an expensive tour, in fact I think it is rather overpriced for what you get. Nevertheless we had an amazing day, we tasted some great wines, learnt a lot about Provence and its wines, and our guide JB was fantastic.

This wine tour was our main reason for visiting Avignon and we were not disappointed. We got lucky and the weather was perfect for the day of our tour. Additionally, our tour became a private tour as we were the only bookings for the day. Our guide, Thierry, was outstanding. He was extremely knowledgeable about the region and had a great passion for the wines. The wines we tasted were amazing, but our guide made the day so much more enjoyable. He
