I was with a group of 15 friends, and we had booked to go on the tour of the wine cellars. We were called to enquire about our whereabouts 30 minutes before we were due to arrive. We arrived on time, but were told that we were going to have to wait another 30 minutes in order to be joined onto another group. My friend who had orgainsed this was very disappointed. The receptionist, and tour guide suggested we wait in the restaurant and have a drink. However, the staff at the restaurant said NO! So, no points to St. Martin for the organising of the pre-booked tour, and no points for the restaurant staff for not allowing us to have a drink. The weather was hot and sunny around 28 degrees C.
There were 2 redeeming features
1) Our (Dutch) tour guide was excellent! She had the right mix of facts, figures and humour!
2) The wine tasting at the end was wonderful. I'd never tried Pinot Blanc before, but really enjoyed this. Also, I don't really do Champagne/Cremant, but I did enjoy a glass here!
