For €11 to see it was OK, a little boat ride over to river to see the various stages of the production process, decent explanation in English by the guide. Then a sample of two Cognac's at the end and a chance to buy... PS book in advance so you know when to go for the English tours.

We did a day tour in Hennessyl, Cognac. There after lunch at some restaurant nearby. Staying over for one night in Château de Bagnolet. Château de Bagnolet was amazingly beautiful & huge. This château is one of the best love château. Throughout our stay in Château de Bagnolet, we did our tour in cognac as well as Grand Marnier. It... More

Entertaining and informative. The guide had charm. If I had properly read the booklet from the Tourist office, I could have saved a euro with a money off token. Still, good value You can always buy a tasting of XO after the basic tasting if you get seduced by the information on the expertise that goes into it.

Cute boat trip along the river (only a couple of hundred yards bit further than necessary to go straight across and was a nice little interlude). The warehouses were full of barrels and everyone spent the time looking for one from their own birth year for photos. Numbers of people seem random, we did the 4.30pm Saturday English tour and...

We went for the X.O tour which allowed us tastings of the X.O. It costs 22 euros per person, and we think it was definitely worth the money. The tour included a boat ride across to the other side of the river where the distilleries are located and a walk-through the warehouse where we got to see some of the... More

My partner and I visited the Hennessy attraction in Cognac at the end of June The tour was outstanding and gave us an in depth look at how Cognac is made and what values and traditions Hennessy stands for. In my opinion the cost of the tour was definitely worth it and with a selection of different tours to choose... More

We stopped here as part of a tour group and had a tour of Hennessy. Our tour guide was very informative and made the tour interesting. The sampling at the end was delicious, and provides the option of non alcoholic grape juice (I had it and it was delicious). Apart from the sampling, the highlight was finding cognac barrels with...

Having looked at other cognac house tours, we went for Hennessy as we wanted a tour and tasting without the apparent add-ons of other tours. While purchasing the tickets we were advised on English- spoken tours timings. The tour itself is comprehensive while not being overwhelming. Our guide spoke good English and really got going when asked questions. The tour... More

We visited the Cognac region and attended two "commercial" tours and one private. This tour is very informative with excellent displays and the boat crossing is a little different. The tasting at the end was good value and corrected a few cognac points for us. Down side - people should not bring their children on such tours if they cannot... More

While I would not make a special trip….or drive more than perhaps 45 minutes to see the Hennessy tour alone, if you are near Cognac, I highly recommend you go. Parking is on the street and by the scenic river area (the river is the Charente). Walk into the marked tour area, through the glass doors and purchase a ticket.... More
