    We’re a family of 4. Our family is really history lover. We have visited many different countries, like Italy, Greece, Turkey, Egypt etc and this time we wanted to see the famous Pope’s Palace. We were quite curious about the palace and wanted to visit the palace knowing that it was the place where the pope lived for some centuries. But especially our guide Jean explained all the details about it very well. The extent of the place was incrediable. The size of the palace is gigantic and so impressive. Apart from that, Avignon is a beautiful city. It has a nice atmosphere. There are also nice shops that also sell local products. We enjoyed our day and recommend this tour.

    My mother and I had a great time in Avignon with our perfect guide Pascale. We were so lucky because weather was sunny at the end of October. The Pope Palace was a huge building. It has so impressive and interesting history. Pascale is very intelligent and knowledgeable guide,she explained all history and details about the building. ThePope palace garden was beautiful as well. The city was like a work of art. The operA square was so enjoyable.Pascale helped us to find local and tasty products. Considering everything this was an amazing day!
    Many thanks,I hope we see eachother again in coming years.
