Nicolas was the best guide. Incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Was an amazing tour for an English only speaking couple. We learned way more than we ever expected about wine and the entire process from soil to sip. We also learned about the climate of the area and history. Would’ve taken many more trips with Nicolas!

It was a great trip! Nicolas - our guide has done a really great job! He is very nice, funny and has a big knowledge about the Lavendel, Wine and a great knowledge of the area. We had also the Lavendeltour (half a day to Sault etc.) with him. I would definitely recommend my friends to book the tours with Nicolas. Thank you again Nicolas - it was a pleasure! :)

Our experience on this tour was fantastic. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the local wine appellations and towns and he went out of his way to make tour unforgettable. The wineries visited were smaller and family owned with exceptional wines rather than the larger tourist traps. We were able to sample a good cross section of the Southern Rhône in half a day.
