What people are saying about Avignon

Interesting tour around unique towns in Provence

On a hot 36 deg C day we toured provence in airconditioned minivan. The locations were unique and have good vistas of the countryside. Our guide was restricted to his vehicle due to drop off arrangements so we received suggestions on places to visit and we explored the locations from there. Would have been nice to tweak the times in the different locations due to heat. Two locations have streams/rivers and would have been nice to have more time there and less in the hotter locations. Pont du Gare was probably my favourite - impressive architecture, river, nice breezes, and museum which I only had time to race through.

Nice places to visit, not the best schedule

The trip was very interesting, but I think there should be more time to visit Avignon rather there spending an hour in Les Boux or watching the Roman Pont du Gard, which you could do in 15 minutes. Very dissappointing wine tasting; the sommalier was extremely unfriendly, not explaining anything about wines we were trying. I guess they think their wines are so good and famous that they don't need any marketing, but what she was presenting was in fact anti-marketing. It spoilt somehow the overall impression of the trip.

An excellent overview of Provence’s highlights

David did a great job of providing interesting commentary about the history of the various areas we saw during the day. It was an aggressive schedule, but necessary to cover the diverse areas we saw. We could have spent much more time at each site but as a highlights/overview tour we were able to spend just enough to appreciate the special nature of each site.

Great trip combined history and wineyard visit

We joint Friday morning tour, was little worried if too early for wine, but turned out there were a nice place (Theatre Orange) to visit first then wineyard after. Perfect for the half day. Our lady guide Doreen explained every places well and took us around smoothly. Timing was good and we enjoyed it all.

This tour is very well worth undertaking!

Gille, our tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly and made the trip a real highlight of our stay in Avignon. The Luberon valley has a lot of interesting sites to enjoy and of course the lavender fields delivered a true delight to the senses.
