our guide, Florence, made the tour an unforgettable experience. She explained all issues with a deep knowledge and in an interesting way. she had an excellent English. She was very attentive to our questions and wishes. the tour was well organized, has good balance between the the visiting time and the ride to them. the car was comfortable and suited the number of passengers.

One of the best wine tastings of my life (and that’s saying a lot). Our guide was very friendly, knowledgeable and was able to be flexible with the schedule given that my wife and I had already tasted a few of the wineries on the agenda. The wines were FANTASTIC. Overall a wonderful experience and we would highly recommend!

Great guide Lucile and activity! We really enjoyed the tour to Avignon and Beaux. Very punctual and comfortable car. The guide was very kind and helpful.

The guide was kind, well-studied, and I understood the historical background very well. Also, the French guide's English was almost perfect.

Florence was a terrific and knowledgeable guide. We learned so much, and enjoyed the sights!
