We spent a wonderful three-and-a-half hours with Karim on this tour. He certainly is a professional wine enthusiast and is passionate about sharing his knowledge of wines. We enjoyed walking through the Mouffetard area (5th arrondissement) of Paris and then spending time at two bars becoming immersed in the dos and don’ts of French white and red wines. Karim was extremely likeable and pleasant, and was very attuned to his group’s lack of or minimal knowledge of wines. He made sure that every member of the group understood what he was saying by never moving onto a new concept too quickly. His games were fun and it makes one want to continue learning more about wines and even wine pairings with different foods. Thoroughly enjoyable and very worthwhile!

Our guide, Kirim was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about both the wines he selected and the sights of the area. Tour lasted 4+ hours and could have gone even longer. I highly recommend it!

Our guide was really knowledgable. He was pleasant and discussed more than just wine. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour.

Fantastic had a great time, althought I feel that at the last stop some nibbles should be provided, with the wine.

Karim gave us an excellent crash course in French wines. In addition to tasting some truly remarkable French wine, we also got to see a few historical wine "secrets" along the way.

Great wine tour - we were treated to a private tour with a very knowledgeable guide Karim. He took us to the off the beaten restaurants and wine bars with a stop at a gorgeous church en route. We were signed up for three hours but the tour lasted close to 4 hours - a real bonus. We enjoyed three unique wines that are not readily found in the U.S. Would highly recommend this tour!

This was a terrible experience. If our guide knew anything about wine, she did NOT share it with us. We went to three average cafes that we could have found on our own and had average wine without an explanation. She wasn't even able to answer our most basic questions about wine. Most disappointing thing we did on our trip! And it was what I was looking forward to the most. Do NOT recommend at all!
