Great wine tasting experience. The wine expert Daniel was engaging and informative and I walked away feeling that the event was both educational and fun!

I have a complaint about the sommelier. She was very haughty. One of the first qualifications is to be entertaining, interesting and inclusive of the entire group. She didn't even pay attention to some of the questions I asked and was not trying to get the whole group together. I felt the other guests were more friendly than her. We had to ask her a lot of questions to get any information out of her. I think she should have gone over the basics at the beginning since wine connoisseurs are not going to come for this tour.

We felt we had to take this tour, being in Paris and wanting to sample the luscious wines. We enjoyed it, but the group was really too large, maybe 40-50 people, and it was noisy and disorganized, they seemed unprepared for our group, and we did get good information, the wine and cheese examples were good and delish-just wished it was a smaller group and more attentive.
