Extraordinary and enjoyable tour

For our excursion to Avignon, Pont du Gard and wine tasting at the Chateauneuf du Pape our guide was Annissa Bencherif. She too was delightful as well as extremely knowledgeable – about French history, culture, architecture and art! She was most energetic, tirelessly herding us graciously from one place to another while sharing a wealth of knowledge. We loved the charming café selected for lunch. The menu choices were again excellent and representative of French cuisine. The other guests on the tour were most enjoyable company, well -traveled and delightful.
