There were only four English speaking tourists on our visit, the rest were all French speaking. The tour lasted about an hour, but our guide spent almost no time explaining the process to us and most of it was repeated repeatedly. The best part of the tour was the mustard sampling and the complimentary mustard gift at the end.

Having wanted to visit la moutarderie for many years, I took some long suffering friends and all of us were enthral led and delighted with the 90 minutes we spent in the company of our guide ( the excellent and English speaking Caroline ) and a lovely tourist from NZ. The company, a small independent, has been in the same... More

An educational tour and tasting which lasted nearly two hours, conducted fluently in both French and English. This was the "historical" rather than "factory" tour which was a mixture of talk, video footage, guided commentary around old machinery, make-your-own mustard, and a tasting session of different mustards with canapés. At the end of the tour we each received 2 small... More

After our visit to this beautiful place, we liked the proposed products, the history and the staff especially Adil Menitel who kindly welcomed us and has told us about the history of its establishment. We will come back to continue our conversation Adil.

It was a very interesting tour. I was very surprised how many different flavors of mustard there are. Tour was a bit long, since it was in French and then in English.

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.
