We did the tour on a whim and although we didn't see the modern factory, we did get to see the old technology and practice making Mustard for ourselves. Lovely staff ensured we thoroughly enjoyed the tour and we all bought much more product than we expected to.

I recommend this tour in Beaune as a break from wine-tasting. The staff were very friendly, the tour was interesting - I learned a lot about mustard - and the mustard tasting was fun. The price is reasonable and so is the time required.

Billed as the only family run mustard factory in Beaune which is very misleading as nothing is actually produced there. Our family found the tour boring although we did buy some mustard (which you can do at many places in town)

If you love mustard, you won't be dissapointed. The tour was okay, nice to see the process. Call ahead to see if they will have a tour in english. However, the great part was tasting all the different flavors from the bar and the selection of products to choose from.

during your visit to Beaune, take the time to tour the Edmund Fallot Moutarderie, a small (20 employees) family owned mustard 'factory.' it far exceeded our expectations, and we were amazed at how much we learned about mustard production, and actually seeing the process from start to finish. English speaking tours are available, and our tour guide was smart, witty... More

We are big fans of mustard and longtime residents of France. So we were surprised to learn the interesting history of French “Dijon” mustard and the steps the small-sized Edmond Fallot company has taken to protect its artisanal mustard and safeguard the culinary heritage of Beaune. Who knew that 90% of mustard seed is imported, from primarily the US and... More

We had no idea there were so many different types of mustard available. We did take the tour which was only OK. We missed a bit of the dialogue since we do not speak French and missed the announcement about the audio guides. On the other hand, the lady helping us with the tasting in the store was outstanding. She... More

The tour was to short for the money. Very commercial with an advanced tour system wich would be suitable for a visit frpm school children. The mustard is good but skip the tour and go to the mutardie and taste the samples, which seemed to be free for all, and buy the mustard you like.

The entrance to the mustard experience was very promising, good shop with continuous tasting and some little game for kids. The tour itself was rather boring, the guide told us the story of mustard making in the region and inside this information was repeated several times, we could all open now our own mustard factory, we learned it... The museum... More
