This was a great experience and I would recommended doing this wine tour/tasting. I learned so many things about wine and the tasting was really good. The vine yards he took us too was such a experience and so beautiful! Such a knowledgable guide if you are in Avignon don’t leave without doing this experience!

The tour was amazing thanks to Benoit, our driver, who shared with us his passion for Avignon area. We received a lot of information about Avignon, vineyards and wine. Benoit gave us some nice recommendations, insights and tips (including about other tours and what to do in the area) and optimised perfectly our time so as to enjoy each moment, while still having plenty of time to do some additional stuff that we wanted to, without him pressuring us and still being back on time. At one winery the sommelier was busy with other people and Benoit was the one pouring us the wine. I personally can say that his presentation was wonderful and I’ve enjoyed it more than the ones done by the actual sommeliers.

The activity itself is superb! On the other hand, we had a lot of difficulty finding the place where the latter was to pick us up. We were twice sent the meeting address as being in front of the Amirande hotel and no one came to pick us up. We managed to find a phone to call and without email notice, the meeting point had changed. It was now at the other end of Avignon center. We got to the famous no-one meeting point… we still had a hard time calling again and the man on the phone told me in front of the tourist office there would be a white van W. The street was pedestrian… a little further on we saw a van but no one inside or on the horizon. In short, it was really unpleasant to start the tour. It made everyone late and made us uncomfortable in front of the other travelers who were doing the tour with us. It has to be improved at all costs. We were really unhappy. A chance that the guide was hot
