  • We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and our guide. This was a great way to learn about Avignon and the papacy in France.

  • This was a great, quick tour of the major sights in Avignon. We've taken skip-the-line tours before and they were sometimes too abbreviated, but this was not. We saw everything you would see if you went on your own, with a lot of explanation and commentary by our wonderful guide, Melanie.

  • Intriguing history and edifice. A little difficult to hear all the information as the area is crowded. Recommend audio-tour or headsets with guide. Had good time, nonetheless.

  • Recently completed the tour with our guide Remy who was terrific- very knowledgeable and patient. I was a little disappointed as the description of the tour made it sound like it was more of a city walking tour and we saw very little of the actual city which is what I was really interested in. The tour of the Popes Palace is included, but I think you can get more insight to the palace with one of their audio guides. Overall the tour guide was great, but the actual tour left me wanting more.

  • This tour was excellent. The guide spoke English very well and was very informative. One thing to be aware of is that the and #34;climb and #34; involves over 100
    steps however if you can make it the view is fantastic and well worth it
    We had to leave the trip early but no reflection on the tour or guide

  • Was an enjoyable morning with a pleasant and knowledgeable guide. It covered a very limited area and was VERY expensive for what we got. I'd suggest booking the walking tour through the Tourist Office. More comprehensive and much better value

  • Great tour. Marc is very personable and knowledgeable.

  • great tour to get to know about the history of the popes place and avignon

  • This tour was great. This tour was definitely worth booking. Our tour guide was great and informative. Avignon is not a large town, so the amount of walking is easy. I highly recommend this tour.

  • Lots of fun. Informative. Great your guide
