The tour is interesting and the cognac is delicious. The tour guide was knowledgeable. I didn't understand the little boat ride, though...looked to be a bridge we could have used.

I think everyone should have... More

This tour was informative and enjoyable but not as friendly or professional feeling as Remy. It was still a very interesting tour and if you are able to do more than one this gives good additional information - the view inside the machinery used in making the eau-de-vie and the fact that you can take photos inside.

We didn't have a reservation but it was a slow day so we were able walk in and join the next English-speaking tour. The tour guide gave an informative presentation but it didn't feel very personal. The tasting was okay, as expected.

This was the first of three Cognac houses we visited. It just happened that we popped into the Tourist Office in Cognac, who were most helpful and provided us with a booklet that entitled us to a discount when visiting the cognac houses and other establishments in the region. Phoned Hennessy and was told that the English speaking tour was... More

We only had a couple of hours in Cognac on the way from Dune of Pilat to Mont Saint-Michel. We popped in to the tourist info office and the lady was very helpful by finding us the fist available tour in English to a cognac house. Our guide was knowledgeable, the presentation was interesting however it's a shame that we... More

Hennessy, by far the largest Cognac producer, has created a sort of theme-park stage for showcasing the unique process by which the region's famous spirit is made. This is a good introduction to the process that includes a visit to the museum and a tasting.

Very professional tour, we did Hennesy, Remy and a local producer and found that it was a really good balance as each tour offered something slightly different

The tour must be interesting, but this time we didn´t have the time to do it. So, we went to the shop where most of the different types of cognac of Hennessy are sold, and we tried one of them at the bar. The bartender wasn´t that busy, so we had a nice chat about the differencies between the different... More
