Thanks to the good offices of Elohim Balest, we were able to walk through a vineyard where the pinot noir grapes were being picked, and to talk to the pickers. Elohim knows (probably!) everything there is to know about the Burgundy vineyards, the grapes, the terroir, and wine production there in general, and has first-rate contacts with the relevant people....

This full day tour has made our stay in Dijon one of the most memorable experiences of our trip. We were the only couple booked so Damien, our guide, drove us in a very comfortable car for the entire day. His enthusiasm for the history, culture and gastronomic delights of Burgundy was evident in the information he gave us and... More

"Superbe" is the word we would use if we were French. My husband and I decided to take a wine tour in the Burgundy region around Dijon. We chose "Alter and Go" and the only tour which suited all our criteria was "Beaunny Times". Our guide and driver was Damien Bretonnière. He was "Superbe" as a tour guide. Although we... More

I had no intention of going on a wine tour in France. I had some time to kill on my way from Switzerland to Dieppe, France for the International Dieppe Kite Festival. Stopped for one night in Dijon, France on the way. Extended that to 3. Had some time to kill the 2nd day. Decided to take a tour. Lonely... More

We did a half day tour with Damien and it ended up being a highlight of our trip to France. The tour is perfectly paced with ample opportunity for questions/ photo taking. Damien is obviously very passionate about the region and takes the time to explain the wine making process and classification. Anyone visiting Burgundy should do this tour!

Loved our half-day tour of the wine country with Damien. We enjoyed the historical perspective, the local background, and easy stops along the way for photos and examination of the vineyards. These four hours were the highlight of our trip to France! See my full review at http://www.laurieborman.com/touring-burgundys-wine-country-in-a-day

Damien was a perfect tour guide who kept us interested and informed. From the time we started on the tour at 1.30 there was never a dull moment. He kept us informed with the wine production and all the interesting features associated with wine. We had a great day and would recommend it to anyone. Kiwi travellers

This was a last minute inclusion on a trip to Dijon and turned out to be a highlight. We booked at the Tourism office and then received a courtesy phone call from our guide, Damien to confirm our attendance and meeting place. The tour began with some insights into the history of the region and a visit to some significant... More

We had a trip in early May 2014. This is the first experience. Amazing and wonderful trip. Our guide Damian from the company Alter and Go knows and loves the heritage of Burgundy, very friendly, polite and attentive person. Lot of memorable experiences. Highly recommended.
