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!

More a tour of Le Palais des Papes than of Avignon.

Efficient office, prompt arrival of our guide who was very good - pleasant, friendly, informative. Billed as a tour of Avignon but did not go beyond the area around Le Pont, the gardens above it, the cathedral and Le Palais des Papes. Nice little spot chosen for a glass of wine at the end of the tour. Possibly a bit pricy for what it was.
