Dijon: Wines of Burgundy Half-Day Tour of Beaune
- Small group
- Duration: 5 hours
We were picked up at 9:30 as scheduled in front of the tourist office. It happened that nobody else other than my wife and I had booked this tour. Ava, our tour guide was excellent. She has tons of wine knowledge and did not hesitate sharing that with us. We visited a couple of wine makers and walked the famous vineyards. She suggested a lunch place that was very good for the hour we were not together in the center of Beaune. I bought some wine to be shipped - although I have not heard from the shipping company that was supposed to contact me yet! The most important factor is wine selection in Burgundy is “the map”! Have the map of vineyards handy when selecting your Pino. Unlike Napa that is equipped with irrigation system Burgundy relies exclusively on natural climate conditions. Check your years yo make sure too much rain did not make it a bad year!
Very good tour from the beginning to the end. The guide (Ann) explained everything and showed a huge knowledge concerning the wineyards, wine tasting and the history of the region. Very impressive ! She had an answer for every of our questions... Thank you very much Ann for this half day tour on our first anniversary of wedding. We will enjoy the Grand Cru we bought after the tasting.
This was by far one of the best experiences of all of our many travels !! We highly recommend this tour, we are only sorry that we did half day and not whole day. Ann, our guide was extremely knowledgeable and personable. We are avid wine drinkers and we learned so much about this beautiful and historic area . Don’t go to Dijon without booking this tour !
This is an excellent tour and we enjoyed it very much! Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and very passionate! He was easy to understand with excellent English. He was patient and was able to answer all our questions fully. The vehicle we traveled in was in excellent condition and well maintained.
Excellent tour with Cedric !!! We enjoy every moment.. Cedric explained us everything about Bourgogne wines while we rode our bikes and enjoyed the beautiful landscapes . We tasted good wines . For sure I’ll recommend this tour to ours friends. Good value for money!
