    This was one of the best tours we've ever taken! Emmanuel is a walking encyclopedic story teller who makes everything about Dijon/Beaune and wine interesting and understandable - and humorous! He really makes it a personal experience and caters to individual tastes, questions and ideas and is in no hurry to finish the tour. We also appreciated how quickly he responded to all our preliminary questions and he kept us apprised of covid changes. Exceptional experience!

    Lovely, knowledgeable guide but if you’re expecting a wine tasting tour like Aus or US then this is not for you. 40 mins spent tasting some nice and mainly red wine wines followed by a drive to Beaune through the vineyards. You will learn about the classification system but you wont visit producers or see a winery up close. Beaune is beautiful but an hour is not enough to give it justice - go see it separately.

    Sebastian has a very deep knowledge of Burgundy wines. We learned so much on the day about the soils and growing conditions and this made the tasting experience so much more meaningful.

    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.

A very pleasant day in addition to being instructive in the company of Thomas, a warm guide with in-depth expertise, and quickly knowing how to put all the members of the group at ease. We recommend without hesitation this activity of tasting high quality wines and exploring the route des grands crus. We thank Thomas once again for the good memories we will have on this day.

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.

Wonderful activity, excellent company, nice wine and beautiful country side
