We are a group of 12 from HK. The tour gave us much insights about Martell Cognac. The tour guide lady was very nice and she even speaks Cantonese. 導遊做得非常好

Boring tour. Tasting ok but you had to pay an extra 6 euros to try the other cognac (otherwise you got the basic stuff) and get a macaroon! Guide was a bit robotic .

I have toured a few of the Cognac houses, and the Martell tour compares well compared to the others. A Cognac house tour is well worth it if you are in the area, the Martell tour is very convenient as it is at the entrance to the Cognac town centre, is easily bookable online or on the phone and there...

Tour was good and the host extremely knowledgeable and approachable. Not having tasted brandy before I went for their duluxe package which was 6€ more. Unfortunately I didn't really feel my experience of the luxury brandy plus a tiny macaroon was worth the 6€ but I'm sure many other people would. Definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Cognac. The... More

Good information on the website led me to phone them and book a tour. I started talking in french - but they quickly started to talk to me in English. You can park onsite and follow the directions from the centre ville. If parking is full, there are lots of free parking nearby. The receptionist was polite and we paid... More

We were lucky to find Martell just before the start of the English tour. Interesting. The lady who ran the tour was very informative and patient with guests. Very pleasant smell in the entire complex. Finally tasting and of course, the passage through the hall where you can buy everything what you have listened to during the tour.

The tour guide was very informative and knowledgeable. She explained a lot about the region and not just the Martell company and how they produced cognac.

Visited today this Cognac processing plant closed down now and only used to show visitors how the process is done. Excellent show. Good English speaking guide. Samples after the show and reduced price on purchases.

A brief trip round the old Martell distillery and a small taste. Nothing is produced here, it's a bit like a museum.english tour was a bit short on information. Truly, at 12 euro each we think we'd have been better to buy a decent bottle of cognac for 24 euro and a book on distilling.

Shared a tour of the distillery with two friends. Were advised to come back in two hours so wandered down the street and found a delightful restaurant where we enjoyed a pleasant lunch. A little shopping beforehand to pass the time (France closes from 12 noon until 2pm), even some of the cafe's etc!! Arrived back at Martell at 13.30... More
