Review on tripadvisor: My wife and I had a very pleasant day with Romain, touring both Chateauneuf-Du-Pape and Avignon in a single day. Romain met us early on a Sunday morning, picking us up at our Cruise Line Terminal in Marseille. Romain is quite knowledgeable about the region and was very flexible about how we spent our day, as we were his only clients that day. We first visited the Chateauneuf-Du-Pape region, where we took some awesome photos while exploring a vineyard and the unique terroir of the region. I was surprised how rocky the soil was. From there, we toured 2 private wineries that were open on Sunday. The first, Les Clefs D'or, was completely private with just Romain and the two of us. Romain explained the process, and we tasted directly from the large barrels and sampled 4 wines - 2 whites and 2 reds. The reds were very impressive and had recently received WS scores of 93 and 92 pts. respectively. We then toured a castle and tasted at a 2nd winery which was also a very pleasant experience, though not quite as exclusive as Les Clefs D'or. We had lunch at the castle adjacent to the 2nd winery, which Romain had recommended to us and if was awesome - very representative of French Provencal dining. My wife was very interested in seeing Avignon, so after lunch Romain guided us back to Avignon and we spent 3 delightful hours seeing the highlights and "whatever we wished". Romain was very familiar with Avignon and I felt like we were in great hands in both Chateauneuf-Du-Pape and Avignon. Romain is very knowledgeable, accommodating and flexible. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience of our day with Romain and consider it one of the top highlights of our 10 day cruise. My wife and I both recommend Romain to any "cruisers" or others wanting to enjoy a magical day in Chateauneuf-Du-Pape and/or Avignon.
