Having done a context travel tour before, this one was a bit disappointing. While it was nice to get an overview of the city and regional history, can't say it it really "came to life." There weren't any really interesting stories told about the Popes in Avignon or the court, just a high level view of the Avignon Papacy that we probably could have read up on line or with an audio guide. The points made on some of the art history were also pretty basic. Overall, good to get oriented with the city and overall history but not "wow-ed" by this tour.
