  • 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.

  • This was a good fun activity and provided some really good insights in wine tasting. The selection of wines was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the activity.

  • Nice wine tour for wine lovers!

  • Yummy! The set up was gorgeous and the details of wine was highly informative. If you cannot go out to the vineyards yourself, do the next beset thing!

  • Highly recommended. Sommelier was great and made it an enjoyable experience.

  • Interesting and amusing for everyone who wants to get aquatinted with French wine.
