If you plan to visit the Avignon, or the surrounding area, scheduling a tour with Francois is a must. You not only get a chance to visit renowned vineyards and consume delicious wine, you also spend the afternoon with a wonderful gentleman. He kept our group engaged for nearly 8 hours laughing and learning. Francois is quite knowledgeable about the... More

We had a wonderful time on Francois' tour. We are a family of 8, aged from 24 to 71, and came away super happy. Francois taught us about the wine of the region, the vineyards, and everything random we asked him about France. In total we were on the tour for 8 hours, including a very nice lunch that was...

Francois was the ultimate guide for our wine tour. We have been on two different tours, and both were fabulous. We had an amazing day sampling wines and touring the region around Chateauneuf du Papes in Provence. We went to 4 wineries and had a great lunch (not included in price), but Francoise really helps you understand the tasting process... More

Francoise helped provide us with such and amazing day sampling wines and touring the region around Chateauneuf du Papes in Provence. We went to 4 wineries and had a great lunch (not included in price) but Francoise really helps you understand the tasting process while you do it. Have you ever wondering why a $30 bottle of wine costs more... More

I did the Avignon Wine Tour on Friday which goes to the vineyards and tasting rooms around Baux de Provence. It's the quiet season for Provence which meant the wine tasting rooms where largely empty which granted an exceptional experience. It's obvious that Francois (the guide, owner, operator) is well respected by the vineyards that we visited. This tour was... More

François' wine tour is fantastic. François delivers a comprehensive, yet very understandable tour from the moment he greets you until he delivers you back to your destination. His knowledge of vineyards, wine tasting, and wine appreciation is extensive. But it's his familiarity of and love for the Côtes-du-Rhône area, his contacts at the vineyards, and his relationship with the community... More

Francois is a fantastic guide. My wife and I had an amazing day touring the vineyards of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. This is by far the best wine tour I have been on. We hope to return to Avignon and go on another tour with Francois.

This was an amazing way to spend a full day of our honeymoon in Provence. We took the full-day tour of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The guide:François = perfect English, funny, knowledgeable, and great music choices in the van. Full of surprises, he could not be a better guide. He has years of experience in the business and his wife is an enologist.... More

Francois led us through the Chateauneuf Du Pape wine region. He is a wealth of information and made the trip both exciting and educational. I highly recommend a day with Francois.
