Four of us ended up on a private tour (the other 2 in the group bailed b/c of weather). We had originally requested regular bikes, which were loaded onto the trailer when we arrived. Decided we better have the electric ones just in case and we're glad we did - we're in decent shape, but the electric ones made it less of a workout and more of a joyride. Paul drove us about 20 minutes up to our starting point, a beautiful overlook. From there he was to ride along with us, but b/c of the potential of bad weather, he decided he lead us in the van, but stopped every few minutes to talk about our surroundings. The scenery was stunning, the wine tastings (one that Paul led) were informative and interesting, the little towns were incredible to ride through and the lunch was a treat. We chased some pretty scary looking rain clouds and Paul let us make the call if we wanted to continue, stopping often to consult w/ us. His knowledge of the area, the history, and the wine was excellent!

Ricky was an excellent guide, wealth of knowledge about area and local wine production. Meal at local restaurant was excellent. 2 wineries we did tastings at were great representation of the area. My only concern is the description of the bike riding. There were some pretty steep hills in the beginning. Great day all around.

Best way to learn more about Bourgogne and wines from the district.

This was a perfect way to see more of Burgundy/Beaune and to learn more about the wines from this district. We were only 8 persons in the group which is a perfect size for a private guided tour. The tour we biked was beautiful, through vine yards and castles. The bikes were also perfect and our guide Eric was good at explaining and gave a lot of useful information which inspired us. The wine tasting in two different vine castles were professional and well arranged. We thought that the price was quite high, but lunch was also included (except wine for lunch) and the tastings we got was of a good quality, which makes the cost for this tour reasonable! We are really happy that we decided to go on this tour, it was one of the best days on our whole vacation!
