Francois picked My Wife and I promptly as scheduled for a full day of private wine tastings (four wineries) in Chateauneuf du Pape with a tour of the Chateau and Chateauneuf winery country side. He went into detail on the art of growing, making, tasting and appreciating wine with a lot of fun. Lunch was at Le Verger du Pape,... More

This was an outstanding tour. I have been on wine tours all over the world and Francois met the most important test. When we went to the chateau the help all knew him, he was able to take us all over and get us the best tastings. It made you feel like you were on a real tour and a... More

Francois is one of the most delightful men I've ever met! My friends and I spent an enjoyable day learning about the wine's of the region, tasting, singing and laughing our way through Chateaus and vineyards. His knowledge and passion for wine and food is incomparable. I highly recommend his tour. You will spend a day you will never forget!

My husband and I did 2 days of wine tasting with Francois--the La Vallee du Luberon and Cairanne, Gigondas, & Beaumes de Venise. We wanted to enjoy wine and leave the driving to someone else. What we got was a fun filled day, seeing lots of the countryside and places we wouldn't have gone. My husband and I have traveled... More

My sister and I were lucky enough to have 2 days of wine touring with Francois. He picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel, and we spent 2 days learning about the steps to wine tasting, how to properly open a bottle of wine, and visited charming, remarkable wineries when they were just beginning harvest. Francois is... More

My boyfriend and I took a full day tour with Francois through the Luberon Valley in July 2016. Francois was incredibly charismatic and knowledgeable. We still refer to him on a regular basis! He taught us a great deal about wine and the region as a whole. He also took us through charming little towns buried deep in Provence that... More

I only had a few days in Provence and was so happy to have booked the Friday tour with Francois. A perfect day with a perfect guide. Only wish I was able to do a few of his other tours. Next time . . .

Excellent full day tour of Cotes du Rhone and Chateauneuf du Pape. Very informative, made great fun by Francois who is a knowledgeable and amusing guide. A lot of information but not intimidating if you are a wine novice. You become a wine tasting expert in one day!! Also superb lunch included. Tours to different wine regions available on each...
