The tour itself was excellent. Our guide was knowledgeable and very easy to listen to. We only have one complaint. We had booked a hotel which was near the original place of pickup. Unfortunately, construction was in full swing in that area and the pickup location was changed. There is no problem with that, we totally understood the reasoning. Our complaint was that when we checked into our room, we read our emails. There was one that just arrived that late that evening, changing the pickup location. We left the hotel in plenty of time, but could not find the new pickup spot. Thank goodness my husband had a feeling that a large van thT was parked up the road was our ride. There were no markings on the van, or signs stating this was the tour van. That would have been very much appreciated. Other than that very stressful start to our day, it was an excellent tour.
The tour was amazing. 3 great wineries (2 in Bandol and 1 in Cassis) and some very good wines. The tour guide (Eric) was fantastic - entertained us with stories and history along the way. The best was a trip to the top of the cliffs over Cassis far an incredible view of Cassis and the coast.
Little time in Cassis. The ideal would be 3:00 pm. The guide knows a lot of wine, was very fruitful to learn a lot. It is an excellent guide.
