    This was by far one of the best experiences of all of our many travels !! We highly recommend this tour, we are only sorry that we did half day and not whole day. Ann, our guide was extremely knowledgeable and personable. We are avid wine drinkers and we learned so much about this beautiful and historic area . Don’t go to Dijon without booking this tour !

    We had SUCH a good time doing this tasting! A 3 hour tour worked perfect for the day trip that we took out of Paris. The wineries that we visited were absolutely delicious, and our guide did a wonderful job explaining the wines of the region (and France) to us! 10/10 would recommend to anyone visiting the area.

    Lovely tour

    Our guide Matthew was really great! He showed us two different wine producers in Gervay-Chambertin where we got to taste beautiful wines accompanied with some cheese and charcuterie. He gladly answered all of our questions with as much detail as we wanted. We got to see beautiful places and learnt a lot about Bourgogne and their wines - and still we had only been away for 3hours and had the whole rest of the day to keep exploring Dijon! And still it didn’t feel stressful, really on the contrary - just relaxing and enjoyable! Thank you so much for this experience!
