A half-day tasting tour was prefect for our planned trip. The guide, Gilbert or Hilbert, was very welcoming and knowledgeable. He provided us with background knowledge, not just on the Burgundy region, but other regions in France as we shared with him our travel plans. When we return to Burgundy, we will be sure to book a full day tasting tour.

The sommelier was very friendly and knowledgeable. Wines were fantastic! I wanted to buy but couldn’t because I already bought several wines the day before.

My husband and I had the best time on our private tour. We learned a lot about the region, tasted fantastic wines, and loved our tour guide.

Our tour guide was Jereme who is knowledgeable and friendly. We had an enjoyable afternoon sightseeing Burgundy countryside.

Super friendly guide and extra tastings. I recommend !
