    Absolute must if you have a spare hour or two!

    Amazing experience learning about the history of wine and what is important when growing grapes to produce a good wine. Very informative, the sommelier has great knowledge and answers each question thoroughly. We tried three wines, One white, One Rose, and we had a choice then of Red or White, all of which were really nice (good enough to buy a few bottles at the end!) We paid for the personalised bottle of wine but unfortunately the machine to customise the label was not working, we still got our bottle albeit unpersonalised but it still tased great and you’re not getting a bad wine at all 10/10 definitely recommend and when we return to Paris something we will hopefully do again

    This is a fantastic tour and we really enjoyed learning about the wines as we tasted them. The app offers a personalised bottle when booking with a tour guide but this is not part of the package. I ended up paying an extra €7 to exchange the token for a bottle of wine and I ended up paying more than the wine was worth. It didn’t dampen the experience but just be wary when you book!

    A little touristy but we had fun

    This was not the most authentic wine tasting experience we had in France but we had fun. You go through different rooms where you can test out the different skills a sommelier uses to determine tastes in wine. It is a little gimmicky but we had fun , it was pretty cheap and the wine at the end was delicious!
