From Avignon : Culture & Wine Tour in Châteauneuf-du-Pape
- Duration: 4 hours
We had an excellent day on this tour! Nicholas picked us up from our hotel lobby and immediately made us feel at home. He was extremely knowledgeable about the wine and the region and we both learned a lot. One suggestion that we loved about another tour we did s to have bottled water and snacks in the transportation (we each had small charcuterie baskets on the other tour), which was great between wineries. We will definitely book another tour when we’re back in France.
Our experience on this tour was fantastic. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the local wine appellations and towns and he went out of his way to make tour unforgettable. The wineries visited were smaller and family owned with exceptional wines rather than the larger tourist traps. We were able to sample a good cross section of the Southern Rhône in half a day.
It was a great trip! Nicolas - our guide has done a really great job! He is very nice, funny and has a big knowledge about the Lavendel, Wine and a great knowledge of the area. We had also the Lavendeltour (half a day to Sault etc.) with him. I would definitely recommend my friends to book the tours with Nicolas. Thank you again Nicolas - it was a pleasure! :)
Our guide, Ginny (Virginia), was very friendly and informative. She made the journeys in between the locations fun and was very happy to answer questions etc. Each location was worth stopping at although it would have been nice to have longer in the village near the Quarry of Lights. But overall it was very enjoyable and we are glad we signed up.
Nicolas was the best guide. Incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Was an amazing tour for an English only speaking couple. We learned way more than we ever expected about wine and the entire process from soil to sip. We also learned about the climate of the area and history. Would’ve taken many more trips with Nicolas!
