The tour was fantastic, well-organized and fascinating pace despite the rainy weather that we didn't even notice sometimes. Thanks to our knowledgeable guides and wonderful group, we managed to see and to learn a lot at moderate pace. I would definitely go again one day. THANK YOU!

Beaujolais Wine Tasting Half-Day Trip from Lyon

Lyon, France

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

I can give only 3/5 but only because I'm passionate with wine regions.
As a wine lover, I could have imagined that Beaujolais region would have been a marvellous idea to visit. Despite rainy weather, driving through vineyards was fascinating and inspiring. However, unfortunately, I was very unlucky with the guide. As I was the only English-speaking tourist in our little mini-van, I noticed that our guide was talking mostly in French. Of course I told her that I didn't speak French a single word, so she had to translate everything into English personally for me. I didn't expect such attitude from her side, e. g. she could say a couple of words for me in English and then 5 sentences in French. It seemed to be very unfair that I paid the same amount of money to get unequal service. I could only guess what she was talking about because I have already had several wine tours before. I was very frustrated and disappointed: I tried to ask questions first but then gave up pulling out the information from the guide.
I wouldn't ever recommend this tour with this particular guide (I even don't remember her name, strange, isn't it?). A guide should be more enthusiastic and sociable. If he/she plays a role as an interpreter, she/he should give the same amount of information in both languages, so that tourists wouldn't feel any communicative gap. My previous travelling experience shows that our guide failed to demonstrate the abovementioned.

Thank you
