Another of our favorite tours on our trip. We had booked this tour assuming there would be 6-10 people on the tour, but we got very lucky and it was just the two of us and our guide. Since it was just the 3 of us, we were able to take our time and enjoy our guide's extensive wine knowledge and knowledge of the history of the area. We drank glasses of wine and walked and talked and had a terrific day. We know the tour ran longer then its scheduled time, but that's because we were enjoying each other's company so much that we ended up just sitting at cafes and chatting while drinking (and learning) about wine. A great great great tour!
Tour was excellent! We learned so much about wine. He guided us through the different smells in a very unique way that we all enjoyed. We were shown how to taste the wine and pick up the different tastes. We learned that when ordering wine in France you order by region not grape. He was willing to answer all our questions and we never felt rushed. He spoke about the part of the city we were in which was very interesting. This was definitely a highlight of the trip. I highly recommend to anyone who was interested in wine. Our guide was outstanding!
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!
We really enjoyed Kirim and the wines he chose and his company. Great tour.
We met our guide, Charlotte, on an old cobblestone street in the middle of Paris on the Left Bank. She took us to three different bars showing us how to smell the wine before we taste it. She also taught us how to describe the odors that we found there. She incorporated some to the sites and history of Paris along with the wine tasting. My husband and I really enjoyed the time that we spent with our guide. Charlotte was friendly and informative. It was a good time had by all. I would absolutely recommend this tour.
We had a wonderful time. Our guide, was knowledgeable, helpful, patient and funny. We enjoyed our time with her very much. It is always nice to learn something new while having fun!
Great tour, learned a lot about wine tasting, great guide.
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 is the most over price tour you can take. $300.00 for two. We went to 3 bars. Had one different glass of wine at each. I had to buy Cheese at the last one as the 4 of us needed something. Told us where the grapes were grown - very little else. Terrible - These people could have included a lunch and so many other things to justify the price. Don't bother
For the price of the tour, it was definitely not worth it! Fabriano did not know any history about where we were walking - only knew wine which was expected since it was a wine tasting tour. He was not familiar with the buildings we were passing whenever I asked a question. He mentioned he has been only doing this for a year and a half so perhaps more training is in order. If this was the only tour we took, I would not recommend Viatour. However, the other 3 tours more than made up for this waste of time and money.
