What People Are Saying About Avignon
Would recommend this trip to everyone wanting to get some imformation about the area and the history . Guide was most imformative and we enjoyed the experience. We were picked up from our hotel on time.
Me and my three friends really enjoyed this tour. It was intimate with 8 people in a van, and our guide, Melanie was very informative, polite and attentive. My favourite thing about the tour was the focus into the area (Chateauneuf de Pape and Orange) and the things we did and saw that we would have been oblivious to without Melanie and this tour. I would recommend to any wine, culture and history lovers.
Solene most professional, inclusive of all guest travellers and with a very pleasant manner. We found also that the guide at the winery was similarly very good. Orange was stunning and it was a privilege to see the theatre. Travel efficient and well planned. We would use this company again.
I was on business - but took an afternoon vacation for myself. It was a perfect afternoon.
Our tour got off to a poor start with an unexpected hour plus delay, however we experienced one of the best and most rewarding tours which was solely due to the knowledge of our tour guide and his absolute delightful personality and hospitality. Thanks Thiery for a wonderful afternoon.
