Emmanuel was an excellent guide! Kind, knowledgeable, jovial and entertaining—a true man of Burgundy who is well connected in Beaune. As a Certified Sommelier, I was looking forward to visiting the vineyards and châteaus of the wines I love so much, but I ended up learning so much more from him about the wines I adore. He chose fantastic wines to try, we all had a beautiful lunch together, and we were always laughing or commiserating over stories and experiences we’d had in this great wine country. Highly Recommend to anyone who doesn’t know wine or studies it like me—-you’ll feel as if you’re visiting an old friend in Beaune :)

Our guide, Emmanuel, was terrific. He knows a tremendous a mount about wine, and when we asked a lot of questions he answered them all in a way that made sense to us. The itinerary was thoughtfully produced. We enjoyed having lunch as a group. And the wine we tasted was excellent. Five stars for this tour!

Emanuel was a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. France Intense was also very helpful in rescheduling our trip from one day to another. Despite the horrible weather we had a great wine tasting trip, pleasant company and a tasty lunch. Honestly the best way to spend a day in Burgundy!

Emmanuel knows Burgundy very well, and has the patience to explain what you need to know about the complexity of this region. You can be relaxed and enjoy wine and the explanation about Burgundy. without the feeling to rush through the tour. Highly recommended.

Knowledgeable, friendly and very informative guide!
