What people are saying about Beaune

Wonderful Tour and Wine Tasting of Burgandy

Despite a minor hiccup with our meeting point (apparently there are 2 Tourist Offices in Baune) our guide took the time to locate us and picked us up in a comfortable Mercedes van for our tour. There were a total of four of us on the tour, my wife and I and another couple so a nice small group. Our guide was Sonia who was an amazing host. While touring the Cote du Beaune and Cote du Nuit regions she educated us on the what makes Burgandy wines special such as the importance of terrior, climate and the appellation. We toured and viewed the finest vinyards in the region and also in the world. We stopped for 2 extensive tastings one in the late AM and one in the PM with lunch and a tour of Clos de Vougeot in between. During the tastings Sonia showed us the proper techniques to evaluate wines examining color, aromas, and flavours. You have the chance to purchase wines at both tastings. I would definately recommend this tour and guide, it was a great and memorable experience.

A great tour. Fully recommend. For the time - best option

Our guide Dylan was great. He knew all about the burgundy wines and wine making. He was very professional, told loads on the history of the region, of the local wine making, and the wines. So I could actually navigate in the burgundy wines after that. And he was fun, 5 hours with him went in a jiffy. It was really nice, to learn the key stuff about burgundy wines. He helped choosing wine after tasting, too. Which was quite helpful. I truly recommend the tour.

Great way to experience the regional wine

Had a great time learning about the different wines of the burgundy region. Thomas was a fantastic, knowledgeable, and very funny guide for the tour. He kept the experience interesting and was delightful to have as a guide. It was nice to explore the area by van. One hour of visiting Beaune on our own. Sampled probably 5 different wines. Had one other couple in the group, so the personalization was nice. Would definitely recommend this.

Excellent, once in a lifetime experience!

We so enjoyed our full day wine tour of the Burgundy! Our guide, Ava, was so knowledgeable and friendly, it was so refreshing to be educated and guided by someone who clearly loves her job. We loved how the day was sculpted: visits to legendary vineyards, tastings, castles, etc - it was just right! I will be recommending this tour to friends and hope to book it in the future when I return with a tour group.

A comprehensive tour of all the relevant aspects of this region

Do this tour if you want to know what this sublime place is all about and DO visit the 500 year old hospital in Beaune, it is a gem! Allow an hour for this visit. If you are a wine buff you will probably love the wine tastings and maybe learn things you didn’t know you didn’t know. All in all a wonderful day out with a knowledgeable guide.
