Every one we have taken here has enjoyed the visit and found the level of information given was exactly right and presented in an easily comprehensible way. We will be... More

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

This tour is a must if you're in Cognac but book ahead if you want the English tour! Great boat trip over to the museum where the tour guide explains about the whole process of brandy making. The best bit was seeing the old barrels with different ages of brandy in them and some going back to the 1800's amazing.

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.

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

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...
