Can I show up without a booking and join the tour?
No, Avignon Gourmet Tour needs to be booked online since we need to know the exact number of participants in advance to organize the tastings and advise our food providers. The spot on the tour is confirmed once the booking has been paid for.

Can the tour be cancelled in case of bad weather?
Although it’s unlikely that you get bad weather while on holiday in Provence, the few rainy days we have down here don’t stop us from showing you our beautiful city, even with a grey sky! Rain or shine, our tours will run!

 

I have food allergies/restrictions, can I still join the tour?

We do understand the different food choices and lifestyles and are able to adapt to some specific diets. However, the aim of our tour is to share with you the traditional specialties and local produce. Provençal traditional food includes meat (pork), dairy and cakes/bread. Therefore, strict vegetarians or vegans would miss a lot of tastings although we always try to find tasty altertatives when available. Please let us know of serious food allergies beforehand.

 

What is the amount of walking involved?
Avignon is a small town and on the tour we will be covering one part of the old city center. The walking involved is no more than 1mile/1.3Km so anyone can join the tour. Since it is a flat town, there will be no hilly surprises! Just wear comfy shoes and appropriate clothing (temperature can go up to 40°c in July).
