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.

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.

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.
