We took this tour. The driver was nice and gave us some history of the area but there is not much to see. One cathedral and walking around a shopping area! Then one stop at a winery for 30 minutes. No tour of the winery etc.

This trip was worth the entire vacation. W were me inside the cruiseship terminal in Marseille. Our guide lived outside if Avignon and grew up working the vineyards at Chateauneuf-du-Pape. He really explained it all. Seeing the Roman wine making ruins was truly a once in a lifetime experience. Lots of steps but well worth it.

If you had more time in port, I would have liked this excursion to be extended to a full day because there was so much to see.

It was an amazing excursion. Florence is interesting and very knowledgeable guide. My husband and I had a wonderful time in Avignon and Chateauneuf-du-Pape. I highly recommend this excursion for people who want to visit Avignon and learn/taste great wines of Chateauneuf-du-Pape in one day.

We spent a lovely day on a private tour of Avignon and an enjoyable experience touring and sampling the wonderful wines of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. We would recommend this as a lovely getaway from the large group tours and truly enjoy the beauty of the surrounding areas of Marseille.
