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.

Enjoyed the quick tour of the distillery, which was both informative and well presented. The only part we didn't like was how the place pandered to the Mainland Chinese, who I guess I should not be surprised to learn, have invaded this part of France as well. As I learned from our guide, they now represent the majority of the... More

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

Cognac tasting tours tend to be very similar but they all have their own quirks and qualities. In this case the number one quality making the tour special is a guide, Mike, who we've usually had whilst there. He is English and does tours in both English and French - we've done both and Fench people with us have said... More

The distillery was officially closed,but opened especially for another large group and we were included with no problem. A really interesting visit and our guide even covered some of the tour in English to assist us

We liked the martell tour as it is informative and interesting with some good visual displays. The tasting is also unhurried and you can decide on the quality and therefore cost of your tour based on this. Generally they seem to have helpful guides. Good value

We were so very impressed with GH Martell Cognac and their facility and tour. We learned a lot about Cognac that we did not know. The tour is very nice as are the staff. It is a beautiful facility. The tasting was very nice and they have an outstanding Cognac. We were very impressed and would highly recommend.

Not thrilled with the blandness of the tour (compared to some tours of US Distilleries and German Breweries), but it is a nice place to stop and see. I enjoyed the shop which included a small taste-testing area (for a fee).
