    We had an excellent day on this tour! Nicholas picked us up from our hotel lobby and immediately made us feel at home. He was extremely knowledgeable about the wine and the region and we both learned a lot. One suggestion that we loved about another tour we did s to have bottled water and snacks in the transportation (we each had small charcuterie baskets on the other tour), which was great between wineries. We will definitely book another tour when we’re back in France.

    Wonderful wine tour

    We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Our guide, Thierry, was spectacular. He has so much knowledge of wine in general and Châteauneuf du Pape, Côtes de Rhône, Tavel, etc. in particular. The included lunch was delicious and in a beautiful setting. We highly recommend this tour.
