We were picked up at 9:30 as scheduled in front of the tourist office. It happened that nobody else other than my wife and I had booked this tour. Ava, our tour guide was excellent. She has tons of wine knowledge and did not hesitate sharing that with us. We visited a couple of wine makers and walked the famous vineyards. She suggested a lunch place that was very good for the hour we were not together in the center of Beaune. I bought some wine to be shipped - although I have not heard from the shipping company that was supposed to contact me yet! The most important factor is wine selection in Burgundy is “the map”! Have the map of vineyards handy when selecting your Pino. Unlike Napa that is equipped with irrigation system Burgundy relies exclusively on natural climate conditions. Check your years yo make sure too much rain did not make it a bad year!
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.
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.
Thoroughly enjoyed biking through the vineyards and small villages in the Beaune region. Our guide Eric was very knowledgeable, comical, philosophical and genuine. Stunning views throughout the trip. Lunch was fresh and traditional. The tour of the winery was great. Would recommend this tour to everyone. Amazing.
Excellent tour with Cedric !!! We enjoy every moment.. Cedric explained us everything about Bourgogne wines while we rode our bikes and enjoyed the beautiful landscapes . We tasted good wines . For sure I’ll recommend this tour to ours friends. Good value for money!
