Fantastic tour. Our tour guide Christopher was fantastic. Very friendly and knowledgeable. The tour is great value and a good introduction to burgundy wine and the region.
We met up with Guillaume outside the tourist information centre in Beaune and after meeting the other six people on the tour which accommodates a maximum of eight people we headed out of town to begin our tour through the small villages of the Beaune Valley.
Thirty kilometres later, a delicious lunch, three wine tastings, memories of beautiful villages and verdant vineyards and a lot of expert information from our guide Guillaume, we arrived back in Beaune well satisfied and contented.
The bikes were comfortable, in very good condition and Guillaume was well prepared for the two children who were part of the tour with their parents, having appropriately sized bicycles and a trailer should the youngest child become too tired to continue. This proved to be prescient as her father did tow her much of the way and it didnt slow down or inconvenience our group in any way.
Probably the only suggestion would be that another wine tasting earlier in the day would have been good, for example: lunch provided a perfect opportunity for a wine to be matched with a meal on the lunch menu.
Doing what: Burgundy Bike Tour with Wine Tasting from Beaune
Our tour guide Christopher, was very knowledgeable about the Burgundy wine region. Despite the rainy weather conditions, we had an awesome tour. Besides the beautiful countryside we had two awesome wine tastings. Our first stop was with Paul, who gave us several wines to try accompanied with a baguette and different types of cheeses. The next winery included some special Grand Cru wines which at home would be very expensive. We had a very pleasant and informative afternoon and would highly recommend this tour. Thanks again Christopher!
Christopher was an excellent guide... Full of knowledge of the region and wines. I was picked up from my B and B and he was before time so I wasn't waiting which I like. He also gave me the option of being dropped off in the town or back at my B and B. Very helpful and I would thoroughly recommend this tour.
Thor me, the crux of my expectations on this trip was wine, wine production and wine tasting. Most of the trip focused upon the chateau and basilica. While they were interesting, they were not, in my opinion enough to warrant the price of the trip. The tasting in Chablis was rather short, but their cave was very interesting. The countryside was breathtakingly beautiful, especially with the canola blooming rapeseed,I believe. Generally, I thought the trip was overpriced and skimpy on the wine focus
This was a most interesting and enjoyable trip out of Paris to Burgundy. We just loved the beautiful scenery of Burgundy. Our first stop was at the most lovely 800 year old Chateau Bozoches. The rural setting was most picturesque and learn of the history of the chateau and admire the furnishings was very special. Next we travelled to the most beautiful village of Vezelay. Our very informative guide took us through historic Basilica and explain the history and detail of the architecture and art works. We enjoyed some free time to explore this lovely little village and have lunch. In the afternoon we travelled to Chablis for a tour of the town then a visit to a winery for a wine tasting. This was a very special day out in picturesque areas with an excellent guide.
This was a really excellent experience! My guide was Stephane who was very knowledgeable and a professional wine taster who really knew his stuff. I learned a lot about wine in the region and it was fascinating to hear about reasons that different wines are of higher quality based on the terroir etc and to see prestigious Burgundy vineyards and villages. The countryside is beautiful and the cheese tasting location couldn't have been better with amazing views. Would highly recommend.
Our tour guide was prompt in picking us up. Very personable and friendly. Christopher was also very knowledgeable about the Dijon area and the wines produced there, He was patient with our questions. did not try to hard-sell anything. Highly recommend this tour.
The tour guide was great, friendly and knowledgable. His downfall was having a coworker with him and she was loud and never stopped talking. Someone doesn't pay for that at 6:30 in the morning. Wine tasting was wonderful, but this coworker dominated the hostess. It made us feel uncomfortable.
Outstanding tour with Christopher. He was extremely informative, friendly, a good driver and the wine was wonderful. A great way to experience the area.
Our guide Christopher grew up locally and was really knowledgeable about the wines of the Burgundy region, and was very flexible with great communication. We tasted some very delicious wines with the two cellars that we visited and had a relaxing time. Thanks Christopher!
very good on time very professonal the guide was very informative and didnt try to push the sale of any wines loved the whole experience watched the sorting and looked in the cellars.
Wonderful tour with a terrific tour guide!
This tour was great. I learned so much. Christopher, our tour guide, was wonderful. He provided a lot of great information. He's very knowledgable and his passion for the wine industry is evident. We saw some great vineyards and tasted great wines. I highly recommend this tour.
Fantastic tour guide. He was very knowledgable and personable. He also had the thoughtfulness to bring along extra drinks/ snacks for our kids. The tour itself led us through some beautiful parts of the countryside to some nice wine cellars.
Stephane was a great tour guide. Full of knowledge and enthusiasm. The route through the wine villages was memorable
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.
