A marvellous way of getting to know the north of the Rhône Valley and its wines. Olivier is a very friendly and knowledgeable guide who explained us perfectly the intricacies of the region and its wine making culture. From picking us at the airport to dropping us at the hotel, everything was perfect. We visited three different wineries and tried... More

Thank you Olivier for a wonderful day discovering the Syrah and Viognier of the Cotes du Rhone! We learned so much about the local wines and their history. Olivier had a great depth of knowledge and has a great ability to teach. The day was so enjoyable!

My partner and I couldn't decide which wine tour to go on while visiting Lyon, so we booked two - the Beaujolais half day tour and the Cotes du Rhone half day tour. The tour guide and driver, Olivier was very knowledgable about the wines we tried and the areas we explored. With each tour we visited two wineries and... More

The winery experience was comfortable and enlightening. The food at lunch was tasty and delicious. Perouge was a delightful surprise and a must see. All other supporting establishments were... More

Visited two local wineries with very friendly hosts and got insight into making of nouveau from one of the owners. Olivier took us to beautiful tiny village between tastings and stopped for photos in best places.

My husband and I took the half day tour of the Northern Cote du Rhone. Setting up the tour at the tourist information office in the Place Bellecour was incredibly easy. Olivier was a wonderful guide. He was extremely informative, not only about the wines, but also about the region and the history. We felt comfortable asking tons of questions... More

We did the full day Beaujolais tour and had a wonderful day. Our tour consisted just of ourselves and one other couple, so a wonderful small group. Very comfortable mini van to travel in. Olivier was a pleasure to communicate with from the start (over email) and was great with us all on the tour. He speaks great english. We... More

We did the Original Syrah tour. Highlights of this tour were stopping at Viene to see the view of the Rhone river and the roman amphitheater, as well as the vineyards situated on the steep slopes of the hills. Overall disappointed with the quality of the wines tasted.

Bonjour Rosie, Thank you very much for your feedback about the tour I gave you last Thursday 16th of October. I feel sorry that you did not like the wines that you have been tasting at the 2 wineries we visited along the afternoon. Both are considered very good wineries and highly rated by wine critics. Syrah and Viognier from... More

We did the Beaujolais and Perouges tour on October 18, and had a wonderful time! Olivier is an excellent guide and driver and explained a lot about the area. The vineyard visit was very good- an excellent explanation of the whole process and nice wines to sample. The lunch stop was at a lovely place and Olivier was very helpful... More

Being from a wine area and having travelled to many other wine regions, a day trip to the Beaujolais region was a must during our two week Lyon stay. Olivier of Kampai tours did a great job.
