We used vin en vacances for a private day tour for our group of seven adults plus a baby. Wendy was very helpful and responsive during the booking process, adapting things to deal with a couple of requests we had - needing a van that could take a baby seat and a lunch that could cater well for two vegetarians....

We were a group of 10 and did the Canal du Midi tour with Kate and Marcel. Honestly we hadn't really put our minds to what would happen on the tour nor how long a day we had ahead of us. We were on holiday and happy to put ourselves in our guides' hands. We left at 915am, wondering what... More

We did the three day Spirit of Languedoc tour and it was a magical and enlightening experience from beginning to end. Wendy is a true expert and shares her knowledge in such a fun and informative way, that you don't even realise how much you are taking in...that's the information, and of course, the delicious wines. She and her team... More

Great day out with a knowledgeable guide tasting some great wines! Kate picked us up at 9am and we headed straight for a tour of a local Olivier to see how the oil is made and also to taste some different olives and different oils - very interesting! From here we headed down to the canal du midi for our... More

We were picked up by Marcel first of a group of 7. While deiving Marcel explained a lot about wine and the region. We visited 2 wineries, a market and had a nice lunch. I really loved the day as not only we tasted great wines, but were also exposed to people that by choice make organic and biodynamic wines.... More

Have just been on a wine tasting day on Tuesday 4th August with Wendy. It was a superb day with lots of great information, wines, good company. We also had a brilliant lunch at The Domaine St Hilaire after an entertaining and informative wine tasting with Daniel. To visit two completely different winemakers was excellent planning on Wendy's part. Wendy's... More

I chose to go to Carcassonne in order to see the Cathar Castles and Cathar countryside. I am so happy I chose Vin en Vacances for our tour guide. It was over 100F outside and the van was very comfortable inside. We got a lot of great description of the countryside and the two castles, a DELICIOUS lunch, and a... More

We had a fantastic day with Wendy and Alphonse visiting Mas Gabriel and Domaine Roquemal. As someone with little knowledge about wine, i learnt so much and the two wineries Wendy picked contrasted really well. We had a delicious lunch at the Abbaye with more wine and Wendy's knowledge of the area as well as wines in general made for... More

Wendy is a very professional and informative tour guide. She takes an interest in her tour group, provides loads of information and is very generous with what is provided in return for the tour fee. Everything ran smoothly and we learnt a lot about both wine and the Cathar castles. This tour was the best we have ever been on... More
