This was an excellent day our, right from the point we met Eric. The tour pick up point was accurate and on time. The guide certainly knows his wine and provided a steady narrative with some great insights to the wine making process in southern France. We visited 3 different wineries with approximately 4 wines per visit. There is no hard sell (or even a soft sell) so no pressure to buy anything. Hosts were all knowledgeable and polite and keen to show off their own products. As some of the group were staying in Cassis anyway, the itinerary was amended to suit everybody and allow different drop off points. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a great day trip around the local area.

We really enjoyed the pleasant trip. It was a special and fun experience that I would love to do again. A special thanks to our guide who was willing to share their knowledge, always kind and a very safe driver.

Amazing! Worth every penny. Eric was an amazing guide, super knowledgeable, engaging, and entertaining. I would do this tour over and over again. Oh! The wine was also amazing and views went on for ever.
