Julien provided an excellent afternoon with exceptional knowledge, visits (2) to family run wineries, pridefully producing delicious wine. Overall a wonderful afternoon. Definitely recommend. Well worth the cost.
We had a great time on this tour. Our driver/guide was knowledgeable, friendly and spoke English perfectly. We especially enjoyed the Rosè tasting in Tavel. She explained the 3 different soil types used and then poured samples of each so we could taste the difference. We stopped at a vineyard to take a close look at the vines and soil. We also liked the trip to the Chateauneuf-du-Pape ruins before going to the next winery. We recommend this tour for anyone who likes wine and wants to learn more about French wines.
This was a great tour, just the write length and content - great tastings and informative tours - our driver Jeremy was very friendly and helpful, even making suggestions which supported the rest of our stay in the area.
My adult daughters and I were part of an 8 person wine tour in the Rhone valley. Anna, our tour leader, was interesting and fun. The wine pours could have been more generous and/or allowed us to taste additional wines. I expected a setting where we could sit outside tasting wine while overlooking the vineyards, but the tastings take place while standing inside a tasting room. The wines themselves were very good, especially the Tavel rose.
I find it hard to recommend this tour. We did go to a Tavel vineyard, and try 4 generous wines - all which were great. Then we did a tour of a vineyard in Chateauneuf-de-Pape and tried their wines. However I thought our guide was a bit arrogant and I didnt learn as much about French wines as I thought it would on the tour. Its worth nothing that the vineyard in Chateauneuf on this tour is the same vineyard you go to one Le Grand Tour of Provence trip. I did both trips in two days, so that was disappointing - and I was surprised that wasn't raised with me when I rang Provence Reservation to confirm my bookings. I'd definitely choose Le Grand Tour over this one. Also, given the price of this tour I think I would have rather gone to a nice restaurant and tried a bunch of wines there. You can also get a train direct from Avignon to Chateauneuf de Pape where there are lots of cellars you can walk into and do tastings, which may be worth considering.
