We had a wonderful tour with Christopher. We drink a lot of wine and are very familiar with California's Napa and Sonoma but his explanation of the French methods was still hugely helpful to us and helped us navigate wine lists throughout the rest of the trip. Shipping wine home was a breeze, and coordinating the tour was simple. He and his company were extremely responsive to any questions. Highly recommend it.
The tour was great! Loved driving through all the small towns and learning about all the different classifications of the wine there. The wines and cheeses we tasted were delicious!
Tour guide Christophe was pretty ice. Enjoyable tour I would say.
For the price I think it could have been better. Liked the small group, tour guide/driver was very knowledgeable. I felt rushed at the castle, lunch was okay. I expected more on the wine tour/tasting. The vineyard representative was difficult to understand. He seemed to want to rush us as well. The drive to the locations was great able to see the countryside.
Great fun. Christophe our guide was informative and friendly.
this tour was fabulous. Isabella, our guide was very knowledgable, interesting and delightful. we tasted a number of white and red wines which were delicious and well priced. we bought multiple bottles and brought them home. the countryside was beautiful and I would like to go back and stay for a we
Great Trip. Good guide and very good timing. Plus we got to see all that we wanted
Our tour guide was very helpful and knew a lot about the area and wine. The tour ended up being a private tour as no other groups were scheduled for the day. This is a great tour if you are interested in seeing the wine region quickly and if you do not have a lot of time in the area. We stayed in Dijon for one night and did not have a car, so this was a great option to see the wine country and learn a lot about the region.
The countryside and sites visited were terrific. The wine tasting was nicely done. We originally thought that the tour would include several others but was just my wife and I with tour guide, Francis. He was outstanding. The downside was the early start at 0630 and lengthy drive both ways.
Easy pick up at our location. Beautiful scenery. Christopher was outstanding - Knowledgeable guide. Great suggestions for places to visit after the tour. Very good cellar with reasonable choices in prices.
This tour was our first as wine novices. We only knew what the basic types of grapes were......until this trip and Christopher, our guide.
Since this was off-season, we were fortunate to have been the only two people on this tour. But there was no less attention to the quality of the explanation and the attention to detail in educating two amateurs. We understood enough about the history, the culture and the classification of the wines and the areas geology and the geography as we watched the vineyard workers burn the winter foliage preparing for the spring.
I cannot appreciate enough the time that Christopher took and the attention to his explanation. As a native of the area he had personal knowledge of the region. His English was very good and he truly made a personal effort to make us feel not so novice.
We truly enjoyed the visit, the wine, the people and the knowledge of what makes the C'dOr so special in the hearts of wine lovers and connoisseur. Great Tour.
Note: The address was the Dijon Tourism Office. Thanks to some wonderful towns people who were very tolerant of my poor French, we figured out where to meet the tour at the previous location of the Tourism Office which recently relocated. Just arrive early and enjoy Dijon.
I would highly recommend a day trip with Christopher to this beautiful region of France.
His knowledge of the area and of the wine was superb. I learned more on this little trip than in all of my days in France.
I would recommend requesting Christopher if you are thinking of booking this trip.
Very interesting stops and activities. It was a long quiet trip to and from Paris. I feels our guide could have done more to explain French history art and architecture along the way to make things move more smoothly.
I loved this Burgundy wine-tasting tour. Our guide was very friendly and informative, and offered a detailed account of Burgundy's wine production as we drove along the beautiful Route des Grands Crus through several small villages. The Côte de Nuits wine region is absolutely stunning, offering postcard-worthy views at every turn. We even saw the vineyards of Romanée-Conti, which produces the most expensive wine in the world! The wine tasting at the end was the perfect way to wrap up the afternoon.
This wine trip was extraordinary! It was great! We are so pleased with it. It exceeded our expectations.
Julia was so kind with us all the time. My wife and daughter and myself enjoyed it so much.
Thanks Julia for a super wine trip.
We thoroughly enjoyed this wine tour.. It was very informative and covered a good range of both wines and topics. Our guide was very knowledgeable and shared this well with our group.
We had a day where the guide was just trying to get through the tour. As he was French his mastery of English was fair and therefore difficult to understand. Upon answering questions he would go from English to job bearish very quickly. Beautiful countryside!
Excellent and knowledgeable tour guide.
This tour allowed to see this beautiful region as we did not rent a car.
Two excellent wineries were visited.
We could not have had a better tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly, and made the experience one we will never forget.
Learned a lot about the region and the wine making process, and saw some beautiful countryside along the way.
Highly recommend.. Thanks Adrian for taking us through the country side and giving us 11 wines before lunch :) very informative..
I would suggest to the organizers to propose good wines for tasting ... I was a bit disappointed with a Cellar Visit (We have tasted sour and cheap wines.)... But everything, except wine tasting, was good.
Excellent tour! My fiancé and I had a great time. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and this is a very personal tour. Recommended!
Great trip and very informative. The guide was really nice and friendly. It was my first time wine tasting like this and I really enjoyed it.
I would recommended to other people. Beautiful region of France.
the wine tour is excellent. The tour guide Christopher is very informative and helpful in explaining the details about wine production and tasting. We have tasted in total 13 wines (mostly red, 2 wine cellars).
Guide very friendly and knowledgable. Good range of wines sampled. Could have been a little longer, perhaps, but maybe long enough. My wife and I did have a very good time.
