Very good tour because our guide was informative and charming. The city walk was great! The organisation as to the meeting place was bad so we lost about 45 minutes standing around trying to find the other people on the tour. This meant the tour of the palace was very rushed. Our guide was not able to go inside on the tour with us and that was not according to the advertisement. Also our tickets did not include a tour of the garden so you should know that before you book.

Nicholas was an incredible guide. He shared so many stories that helped bring to life the Avignon papacy, including the competition between the Italian and French popes. He is most knowledgeable and speaks in an easy to understand and relatable manner. Will certainly recommend him to friends!

Very pleasant visit. Our guide knew how to make us discover the history of the city of Avignon and its points of interest with very complete comments, punctuated with anecdotes and humor. The tour ends with a small wine tasting for our greatest pleasure. Magnificent city to discover!

Great way to see the Palais des Papes! Pierre was very knowledgeable & made the tour an enjoyable experience! Recommend!

Nicolas was informative, spoke excellent English, and clearly communicated his enthusiasm for local history
