A good tour of the area around the Palace of the Popes and inside the Palace. The tour of the palace felt a little rushed; we stayed behind and didn't go for the wine tasting. Lots of interesting information with the guide, Silvie, speaking good English. I thought I'd booked an English language tour but it turned out it was bilingual for French and English, which I guess reduced the amount of time available.

Very good tour because our guide was informative and charming. The city walk was great! The organisation as to the meeting place was bad so we lost about 45 minutes standing around trying to find the other people on the tour. This meant the tour of the palace was very rushed. Our guide was not able to go inside on the tour with us and that was not according to the advertisement. Also our tickets did not include a tour of the garden so you should know that before you book.

Very pleasant guide with extensive knowledge. Pleasant small group

Just the right dose of information. Unfortunately, we didn't know exactly what was being viewed beforehand. A little more “city” instead of just the Pope's Palace would have been nice, or at least a few more tips on what is worth seeing (which streets and squares are beautiful, etc.). But overall very positive experience, thank you very much!
