Viator Traveler's Reviews

A highlight of my vaction! As we drove from location to location, the guide gave a wonderful explanation of the history of the region, the development of Cognac, and the people of the area. Everything was very well done, and I learned far more than I ever expected to. The cooperage and both distilleries were very welcoming. The tastings were outstanding as well. Both producers were very generous, sharing even thier oldest and most valuable Cognacs. I highly, highly recommend this tour.
