This wine and Champagne tasting experience—which includes six tastings—takes the guesswork out of wine, with a guide on-hand to teach you about the different varietals and demystify the complex labels and classification systems of French wine.

      Not flexible or fair
      My friend and I were booked on this tour. We also paid for the extra bottle to go. The day our tour was set the traffic was horrible because Biden and other heads of state were in for the Normandy celebration. It took us over an hour to get to pick up point because of traffic and then we had trouble locating the meeting point so we were literally 5 minutes late. We could not board. Asked to at the very least receive the bottle we paid for and they said they couldn’t. Asked to AT LEAST be refunded the price of the bottle we paid for but would not be able to enjoy after we were already eating the cost of the tickets and were told no. DO NOT BOOK WITH THIS OUTFIT. They are keeping all money with no services or goods rendered. There are plenty of alternative Seine wine cruises you can book with that can be more flexible if something goes awry to get you onto another cruise. I didn’t feel like I was asking too much to be at least refunded the cost of the bottle to go as we were not receiving it and they were still able to sell it to someone else but they declined so I felt this review was warranted.

      Cruise on Seine
      The weather was a damper which couldn’t be helped. The cruise guide spoke in French and English, which was great but hard to follow along. The river was also too high to go near the Notre Dame, so that was disappointing.

      Great champagne lesson on the Seine
      Great knowledgeable champagne tasting with lovely views. Also it was a plus to have access to the front of the boat to get photos and videos. Only downside was that the river was too high to see some sights.

      An easy way to see the city.
      Do the evening cruise around sunset. When the lights turn on, the city becomes more magical. Pay for the champagne upgrade as you are on the front of the ship and not locked inside.

      Fun experience for Champagne (and Paris) lovers
      Everything was great - our sommelier, the Champagnes we tasted, the views of Paris. Even if you're already a bit of a connoisseur you can have a lot of fun!

      Definitely recommend this experience
      This was a very nice experience. You can pay 15 euro to get a charcuterie board to add to the cheese and bread they provide. We did this and it made the tasting a meal as well. This was a good chance to hear others' questions about wine. The sommelier was very open to any type of questions and of course he could answer all of them. We had 2 reds and 3 whites, one being champagne. A different cheese for each. He talked a lot about how to balance the right wine w cheese, I should have taken notes. lol

      Have fun and learn about wine
      The sommelier was great. Knowledgeable and funny. He made the early afternoon fun. The room was full but he was able to involve everyone. I would not get the additional charcuterie board for $15.00 additional however. Highly recommend.

      Unclear instructions and poor customer service, do not recommend!
      It was my mom’s first time in Paris so we booked this tasting. The instructions were to meet at Vedettes de Paris at 6:30pm. That was all that we were told. We arrived at 6:20pm to the ticket booth that had in large letters “Vedettes de Paris” and waited there almost 10 min before my mom realized there was a group of people 2 ports away. We went to check and there was a small booth at the front of the line which was not clearly visible and had the name Vedettes of paris on it. So we got in line and it was about 6:29pm when the man at the booth told us we had missed the boat. He informed us that we had to get there at least 20 minutes early to board. This information was never shared with us anywhere on the instructions or the where to meet section. I reached out to customer service who just said they couldn’t refund us but didn’t give us any explanation or take responsibility for their very limited and unclear instructions. I travel quite a bit and often use tripadvisor for bookings, but I will no longer be booking with them for future trips. I am very disappointed that customer service was dismissive and declined my refund request without any explanation.

      Quick cruise on the river with champagne
      Great views from the river and great champagne and tour guide. Wear a coat if you get cold easily or it's a cool day. Make sure to get there 15 minutes early to avoid almost missing the boat like we did. 5 stars.

    One of our best experiences in Paris. We tried amazing wines from different regions of France and our guide was very knowledgeable about each region and the wine making process. We purchased a cheese tray and charcuterie tray which really complemented the wines. The tasting was in a cellar room lined with wines. Everyone had a good time and our guide made it a very relaxed atmosphere.

    Really fun experience! Our sommelier was incredibly knowledgeable and did a great job providing an overview of French wines. We were able to try one champagne and four wines- all were excellent, Wines were also paired with cheese and a charcuterie board. We went for the lunchtime tasting. Would highly recommend it.

    I have done this wine tasting previously and wanted to make sure my husband and I went back during our recent trip to Paris. The atmosphere is lovely and our host was extremely knowledgeable and energetic! I highly recommend this to anyone who loves wine and wants to learn more about French wines.

    Honestly, I was expecting this to be a bit tacky and tourist trappy, but I was so wrong! It was one of the highlights of our week in Paris.
    Lily, our sommelier, was great. She was funny, engaging, unpretentious and shared so much information with us about the wines and the regions they came from. It was such a fun evening. The wines were delicious and I would also recommend taking up the cheese and charcuterie options - yummo!
    The wine bar itself is really nice too, so after the tasting I'd suggest heading upstairs (the tasting is downstairs in a cellar) and soaking it all in. It's a really pleasant place to spend an evening.

    We had a wonderful afternoon of wine tasting with O Chateau. Our sommelier Charlotte was very knowledgeable and engaging. She was great for both the newbies and the most experienced customers, answering everyone’s questions and sharing her love of wine and France.

    It was an amazing experience. Great host. My boyfriend and I finally learned how to properly taste wine hahaha. We were served 6 different types of wine, also bread. You could get a cheese only, charcuterie or a mix tray for an additional cost, we did and it was worth it.

    Our sommelier was amazing. So knowledgeable and comfortably built strong rapport quickly. He didn’t only relay information but he also made it personal and relatable by sharing his own experiences. He’s now motivated me to learn more about wine because he didn’t make me feel awkward or ashamed that I walked in with zero experience or knowledge

    What a wonderful way to spend the afternoon- the wines were delicious, the cheese and meats went very well with the perfectly chosen wines. He was very knowledgeable about all wines, not just the French ones. I would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys wine

    The French are proud of their wine. They deserve it. The wine was so good. I don’t have words to describe it. We did the Tour of France wine tasting. Clement, our sommelier, was excellent. He was entertaining as he was knowledgeable. They gave us a color coded map of France and he explained why the wines from each region tasted the way they did and the different processes that go into growing the grapes and creating the various wines. We elected to get the cheese and meat plates as well. Sigh. The cheese. I actually took notes on my map and Clement talked to new a bit afterward so I could find the cheese. Americans kind of crack on the French for their attitude about their wine and cheese. I’m here to tell you they deserve that pride. It is unbelievable!

    The sommelier was very knowledgable with the wine we tasted. There were 6 wines that showcased different regions in France. If you add on food and you are there with someone else, I recommend one person getting the meat platter and another getting the cheese. There is a better selection of both doing it this way compared to how I did it getting the combined meat and cheese platter. They also provided a TON of fresh bread for the table. It was warm and delicious! You are seated at a huge table in the basement that is very cozy and charming.

    This is a great way to taste some wines if you are just going to Paris and not other regions. I ended up buying 2 wines and bringing them home with me!!!
