          Expertly guided comprehensive tour of central Burgundy wine region
          This was an outstanding experience from start to finish. Pieter Smits, who operates the tour, is a true expert and curates the tasting both before and along the way as he learns more about your interests and experience level. The full day tour included four different tasting sites with a wide range of producers and vendors, from negociant to small volume producer to specialty caveau, with personal touches from staff and/or owners at each site. In particular, Damien at Philippe LeClerc in Gevrey-Chambertin and François at Le Caveau à Auxey in Auxey-Duresses took the time to explain in detail which vineyards and plots each wine came from and shared their vast knowledge and passion with us during our visits. Pieter also took us to see many of the vineyards and other sites over a wide range of the most important areas in Burgundy. He arranges shipping for the bottles that you purchase and follows up to ensure that everything works out. I will be recommending this to everyone I know who is going to France, and I am hoping to do his tour of Alsace when I later visit Strasbourg.

          Day trip from Colmar to Eguisheim, Riquewihr and Haut Koenigsbourg Castle
          Colmar is an enchanting town but it's great to get out into the nearby towns, villages and countryside covered in vineyards. This day trip organised by Ophorus Tours was the perfect opportunity. Our tour guide was Thierry who gave us a wonderful explanation of all things Alsace. He had a lovely sense of humour and a wide knowledge of the region which he imparted in an informative and entertaining way. The nine seater van we travelled in was comfortable and stops frequent and well-timed. We started with an enjoyable wine tasting in Eguisheim followed by a stroll around its quaint circular streets within ancient walls. We had the chance to look at other towns such as Turckheim before having free time including lunch at Riquewihr. Thierry pointed out suitable restaurants to choose from. In the afternoon the highlight was a visit to Haut Koenigsbourg Castle. Thierry had spent time there previously as a guide so was able to expertly bring its history alive for us. It was a delightful tour which we can highly recommend.

          Perfect Day in Burgundy
          Our tour with Pieter was one of the most special days we had in France! The experience was worth every penny. He was very knowledgeable and his guidance gave us the opportunity to get a "taste" of Burgundy stress-free. We had one of our favorite meals in France at the restaurant we stopped at for lunch. We sampled so many wines from a variety of wineries and vineyards. He was helpful even after we returned to the states, through the ordering/shipping process of our wine. Book this tour if you can! You won't regret it.

          Excellent wine tour around Beaune. Lean't a lot and enjoyed myself
          I really enjoyed this. We had a tour either side of Beaune in the heart of Burgundy. The car picked us up at our hotel in Beaune and returned us there at the end of the day. We were taken on a tour through some of Burgundy's principal wine growing areas and visited a number of establishments where we tasted various wines. We were also taken to an excellent restaurant (at our own cost) in a rural retreat. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable and interesting and gave us a summary of which areas we were visiting the classification of different qualities of wine. This is the kind of stuff I wanted to learn. The best winery was saved until last, so pace your wine consumption. A tip to the uninitiated: at the tastings, spit most of it out. Otherwise you will be a bit of a mess at the end of the day. I thoroughly enjoyed the day.

          Best day of the trip!
          We had a group of 5 people including 3 teenagers. Pieter was absolutely fantastic! He was informative and kept us all engaged. He helped us cater the trip a bit to our liking and offered amazing wine tasting knowledge. We felt comfortable with him and look forward to another excursion with Pieter

          Amazing day trip through Burgundy wine country
          Our private wine tour was amazing. Pieter was an excellent guide. He was knowledgeable, organized, and fun to talk to. Pieter picked the four of us up from our hotel in Beaune in the morning, drove us in his car to two wineries, a delicious lunch, and then two more wineries. Pieter then dropped us back at our hotel in the early evening. We drove through the beautiful Burgundy wine country and learned about the different classifications of wine and what to look for when purchasing a Burgundy wine. It was so nice to have someone who knew the area pick out which wineries to visit, schedule the visits...we were just along for the ride. At each winery, we were not pressured to buy bottles, but when we did (and we certainly did!), Pieter kept track of everything. After we left France, Pieter organized the shipment of our wines from each winery. Our bottles arrived at our apartment in NYC four weeks after we got home, everything we ordered in perfect condition. I could not more highly recommend this wine tour with Pieter!

          Wines of Burgundy Day Tour with Pieter Smits
          We were staying in a vacation rental north of Lyon while attending the Women’s World Cup and had initially wanted to take a Beaujolais Wine Tour on one of the off-days. Unfortunately, we couldn’t find a tour or private tour guide that wasn’t already booked. As a result, we moved further North and started looking at Burgundy wine tours. Luckily by-chance, we booked The Wines of Burgundy Day Tour with Pieter Smits. We had a wonderful tour with Pieter as we visited several villages, chateaus, and wineries. Not only were we able to sample some fine wines but Pieter also selected a restaurant where we had a great lunch. Pieter is very engaging and knowledgeable which helped make the tour very enjoyable. It's an experience I will always remember.

          Very Good
          We were on a riverboat excursion and were taken to Strassbourg, so this canal ride was included. We enjoyed going around this absolutely lovely little town. It is so charming! You can see really well as the boat has glass roof. Thankfully, it was a beautiful day so you could see all the darling hpuses with their flowerboxes under all the pretty. I highly recommend not only the boat tour but coming to this town. It was one of my favorites on the whole trip.

          Best Day of our Trip
          We had the pleasure of traveling in December to Geneva, Strasbourg and Zurich. Hoping to see some of the countryside, we booked a day-tour with Pieter to travel along the northern part of the Alsace Wine Route. Based on email correspondences and discussions as we started our tour, Pieter put the perfect itinerary together which matched our interests. We spent time in Rinquewihr and Colmar, taking in the village sites and their Christmas markets. We also visited two wineries in the region and could not have been more pleased with his selections. In addition to their superb wines we enjoyed at the tastings, the winery staff carefully packaged our purchases to ensure safe passage in our checked luggage for the return home. Pieter is clearly knowledgeable about the region and the wines produced in its vineyards. We were particularly impressed in the manner which he made mental notes as to our wine preferences at the first winery, and then made the suggestions at the secondary winery based on that information. This attention really allowed us to fully experience and appreciate the offerings at the wineries with the limited time that we had. Regarding practical matters, Pieter was very responsive to email communications before the trip and payment was very easy via PayPal. He met us at our hotel precisely at the agreed meeting time. He automobile was clean and comfortable for travel. And I felt he was a safe and responsible driver. Above all, he is very personable, and we enjoyed the day that we spent with him. We have to say that his day tour was the highlight of our trip. If we ever turn to the region, a second tour with Pieter without a doubt will be on our agenda.

          Full Day wine tour of Burgundy
          We’ve toured with Pieter before in Alsace & we were thriled to find out he does wine tours in Burgundy. Pieter speaks English & French and has wonderful relationships with exquisite, special & boutique wineries in the famous Burgundy region. He’s very knowledgeable about the region, the wine making process & takes you to view the most famous Pinot Noir vineyards & sights. Our full day tour included 2 visits & tastings in the morning & 2 after lunch. You pay for your lunch & Pieter will select a place for lunch based on your culinary preferences & desired price range. He will even make excellent suggestions for dinner if you ask. He made dinner reservations for us at a Three Star Michelin restaurant, which was on our bucket list! He picks you up and drops you off at your hotel & shows you famous Chateaus & museums of the region if you would like & have time. Our group included my husband, our 11 year old son & my mother in law. He’s understanding & accomodating to our well behaved son & my mother in law who needs help with waking, steps & such. I’m always impressed with Pieter’s vast wine knowledge & was delighted once again by his special relationships with the people at the places we toured & tasted. I’ve taken many guided wine tours & I feel like we get extra special treatment when we are with Pieter. The best part is, Pieter coordinates affordable wine shipping so you can purchase & ship the amazing Burgundy wine home to the USA! We look forward to touring another wine region with him in the future!

          Amazing Day of Wine Tasting
          Pieter was absolutely fantastic! We had such a special day touring the vineyards in Alsace and trying the various different types of wine in the region. Pieter was so knowledgable and helpful. Can’t wait to organise another tour with Pieter

          The tour and Pieter were PERFECT
          We were fortunate to have a personal tour from Pieter. His knowledge of the region and wines were insightful and helpful to both of us. There are hundreds of producers in the region and his selections gave us a great view from small to large producers. He read each us perfectly in a short time and could easily pick our favorites before we did by mid day. He was personable and knowledge talking about wine or casual lunch conversation. We were not easy customers. My wife is a very serious and knowledgeable on wines from many French regions, though not the Alsace. I am much more the novice. He easily spanned back and forth between us to ensure a great day. When challenged by my wife to estimate the cost for the day. I rated 25% higher than cost. Pieter was worth more than we paid, a rare treat. Thank you for a great day

          Whatever you want from Alsace -- Pieter can do it!
          From tasting the best of Alsace to lovely villages and chateaux and castles to some really great lunches to Colmar's Statue of Liberty (just like ours but not as tall), our three days with Pieter went by far too quickly. We had a very general idea of what we wanted, Pieter filled it in with energy, experise, and enthusiasm. Beginning with the 7 main grapes of Alsace and vineyards in the hills, we visited small boutique wineries to large super-colossal establishments and all were pertinent, tasty, and, well, fun! Most importantly, wines presented & tasted were well planned, chosen with purpose, their place explained thoroughly: compare and contrast. We visited a friend of Pieter's who is building an earth-friendly modern winery -- we interrupted their construction to say hello. We went to a winery guarded by a blind dog, he never moved. We went to the greatest Christmas store in the world. Castles, chateaux, quaint towns -- I don't know how we packed so much into 3 days. And, of course, the wine. Red, white, and rosé, still, bubbly, and sparkling, sweet, dry or in-between -- truly we had it all. Pieter's English is perfect, his French must be good because he fits in like a Frenchman, and he seems to know everybody and everything pertinent in the region. We had such a great time, we're trying to get him over to Bordeaux next September for another visit to other vineyards.
