Excellent half day tour to the wineries with an extremely knowledgeable and friendly guide, Thierry. We visited three wineries in the region and Thierry added wonderful details about each town and the wines produced by them. The wines we tasted were fabulous and we ended up picking up a bottle from each winery (including one in Chateauneuf de Pape of course). Friendly folks at all the wineries, I would highly recommend this tour if you have half a day to spare in Provence.

We had a fantastic tour with a very friendly and knowledgable guide named Thierry. We visited two excellent estates but missed out on a third owing to it being a Monday and the fact that harvest was still taking place. My wife and I really loved the experience and can highly recommend anyone wanting to make use of the tour. Perhaps next time we come we’ll make it a full day tour. Really very good indeed!

Terry was very good! We got lucky and got a private ride even though it was booked as a group event. The wines were excellent. We bought 4 bottles. The time allowed for this trip is too short and we could only cover 2 wineries instead of three but this was enough.

Very nice and extremely informative tour with a very experienced guide who knows the answer to all questions about the region and the wine. The tastings were wholesome and give a nice insight into one of the top wine regions in the world.

Excellent communication and the guide provided invaluable information
