What people are saying about Beaune

We thought the first tasting was great with a presenter who was passionate about her winery and the Burgundy region overall. The lunch tasting and meal was excellent and the travel through the region was wonderful. The last tasting could have been more professional as it was simply wine poured as we stood in the cellar poured over barrels. If they were trying to give us perspective regarding a small vineyard/owner, understood but was a bit uncomfortable.

The first and most important for me it’s everything was exactly as I had booked. Punctuality, excelent car(Mercedes), very good guide (Hubert) that I highly recommend. Very good wines to taste, no hurry and I have never felt in the obligation to buy anything.

the guide was very knowledgeable and gave the facts in an interesting manner. The little towns one travels through are quaint and picturesque. The wines tasted were quality wines and the experience was fun and interesting.

A very enjoyable tour - very informative and very tasty. Our guide Sebastian was excellent: Both knowledgable and passionate about wine and the area. I thoroughly recommend this tour.

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.
