Excellent tour, informative and fascinating history
A really good tour with Angeline, her first in English and much better explained regarding the cognac process than the Hennessy tour we did a few years ago. The château history and architecture extremely interesting.

Getting soused in Cognac
Oct 2018
You can sample them all, and crawl away happy in Cognac. Our British friends live not far away and recommended the Otard tour as the best. The Chateau is more than just a cognac distillery. Lot's of great French history and you'll get that with the tour, along with a tasting.

informative and entertaining
Jun 2019 • Friends
We just did the short tour with some history of the castle and a visit to the cellars both parts were excellent.There was a good mix of general and technical information to keep you interested but also give an understanding of both the castles history and how a great cognac comes to life. Elisabeth certainly knows her stuff and her English was excellent. I would definitely recommend a visit to the chateau.

Cognac Chateau Tour at its best
Apr 2019 • Couples
We recently had a tour of this Chateau and were very impressed by its history and architecture. Corinne our tour guide explained all its history in perfect English and gave a very interesting and informative tour. We would recommend visiting this Chateau if you find yourself in Cognac, they do French and English tours at different times throughout the day. Don't miss it.

Interesting Tour
Oct 2018 • Couples
Prior to arrival in Cognac, we booked the 1 hour Discovery Tour for 11 euros online. Payment was made online and it was super easy.

We arrived in Cognac on October 2. The town was quiet and made for a nice place to walk around for a bit prior to our tour. I really liked the town of Cognac. If you visit, make sure you walk around. We had lunch at Creperie L'Olympia which I highly recommend.

Our guide was Elizabeth. She took us to the Chateau, explained the history and we saw the cellar and tasted the VS and VSOP. All in all, we did enjoy the tour and tasting and found it interesting. Our tour lasted about 1 hour and 20 minutes.

Corinne gives an EXCELLENT tour
We did the english language discovery tour at chateau royal with corinne. We keep on saying how glad we were that we booked because the cognac tour was an incredibly good mixture of history (france, the cognac region and of cognac making) and architecture and science. We learned so much and corinne really made it fun. She is very knowledgable. The castle is beautiful and the cognac amazing.
