Her aim is to provide you with an experience that you can’t easily create for yourself and during the day you will explore the regions, meet some of the most interesting vignerons, taste their wines and enjoy a superb lunch.

When spending a cruise stop day in Sete, we arranged for a tour with Vin en Vacances. Marcel, our guide, picked up us at the ship with a great day planned. He was friendly, informative and knowledgeable. We first hit the market to sample local products, then ventured to a lovely winery and oyster farm before a fabulous seaside lunch.... More

A full day, visiting 2 vineyards, 3 course lunch (with wine) a market and Minerve Village. Our guide and driver Marcel was extremely knowledgeable. I recommend this tour early in your holiday, as you may well want to revisit some of the locations. We returned to the restaurant "Auberge de l'ecole" for a second visit, as we particularly enjoyed their... More

Some say I am cheap, I prefer to say I am frugal. ☺ So, at first glance the Corbières & Lagrasse tour conducted by Vin en Vacances for €125 per person seemed pricey. But, I reasoned, I am spending thousands of U.S. dollars for airfare, accommodations, and expenses for a one week visit to Languedoc. It should be worth the... More

Having experienced a great day out last year, we re-booked for this year's holiday. Once again, it was a fantastic day out with Marcel, visiting some wonderful vineyards. Would thoroughly recommend for wine beginners and experts alike.

We treated ourselves to a wine tour for our anniversary whilst we were on holiday in Carcassonne. From the moment Marcel collected us from the end of our street, to the moment we were dropped off, we had a great day. After much deliberating we picked the La Clape tour so that we could go to the seaside. The first... More

We went on a wine tour with Wendy and Marcel last year and we had a great day so when some friends decided to come and visit we booked another tour. Wendy needs a wheelchair, we were warned that there would be a little walking around one of the vineyards which we not be able to manage. This did not... More

What a wonderful three days we had this summer with Wendy, Marcel and Kate, seeing the countryside and sampling the wines of Languedoc and Roussillon by minibus. Highly professional but good fun, visiting a range of producers, large and small, modern and traditional. Three superb and very different lunch experiences (including a wonderful picnic). Suitable for wine lovers, both knowledgeable... More

We had never been to the Languedoc region before so the day trip incorporating Minerve & the Minervois was a great introduction to the region. Wendy was great sharing her knowledge about the wines grown in the region and what we could expect on the tour. Lunch was spent at a lovey cosy restaurant which we loved. I would highly... More

Enjoyed a fantastic tour to Corbierres and Lagrasse with Wendy on 4/8/14 and a tour to Domains Gayda with Wendy and Marcel on 8/8/14l. I have now been on four tours with Vin en Vacances and enjoyed every moment of all of them. They are a great way of seeing the Languedoc Roussiillon area of France, learn about wines, enjoy... More
