We did the escape room experience. We took our daughters aged 8 and 9, sadly we speak little French and it was purely in French but many of the puzzles were not language related combined with our small amount of French understanding we managed fine. It lasts for an hour and we didn’t manage to escape but some of the challenges are really good fun.our kids loved it.

Really recommend this tour - our guide was great and spoke excellent English. This was the first tour that we took and compared with the others we did, this was the most informative and clear. The wine tasting afterwards was great and our guide was very knowledgeable.

Popped in on the off chance they had an English tour slot and they offered to run the next tour starting in 10 minutes in French and English. Was a great tour with a knowledgeable lady who also did the wine tasting at the end. We sampled most of their still and sparkling wines and left with 2 cases - was tough not to buy more. Worth a visit. There website does mention the regular tour times

My partner and I specifically came to Saumur to see the Chateaus and learn more about the wine made in this region. We saw this place on Trip Adviser the day before. It was incredibly inexpensive to go on the tour and the wine was absolutely delicious and also fairly inexpensive. After learning about this wonderful family business and going into the tunnels, we tasted 5 different sparkling wines and ended up buying 5 bottles!! Thank you to Laura our guide who was incredibly knowledgeable and amazing at switching from French to English. A great perk for us was the car park was private and had some shade so we could leave our pup for the hour or so, in an air-conditioned van in the shade. Thoroughly recommend!!

We love visiting the caves of Louis Grenelle. This small wine house in the centre of Saumur give a great tour of their cellars and the process of adding the bubbles to their wine to make the cremant de loire. Tasting of the wine takes place after. There is a small charge for the tour and tasting but if you get hold of a copy of the local passport magazine (which is also available at the boutique) you can get 2 free adult entries. children are free and they get fizzy grape juice to taste afterwards.

What a brilliant tour and capped-off with a friendly and knowledgeable guide who spoke perfect English ☺️ the facts surrounding the caves’ uses and development over the centuries is astounding - as is the sheer number of bottles of wine stored underground...which stands in the millions...😳😳. A must tour - finished off with some exceptional wine in the tasting session!!

Another hot day in Saumur so we had respite from the heat by doing a wine tour in the caves. This turned out well, nice and cool and an exceptional guide who explained everything clearly in French and thankfully in English as well. A most enjoyable tour with wine tasting at the end, excellent, and a special thank you to our guide, Laurene, for making it so interesting, oh and yes we did buy a dozen bottles of our favourite for when we arrived home!

Superb afternoon spent walking the caves with a fab guide. Party was part French part English and so the guide did the tour in both languages... really lovely to learn the secrets of the Louis de Grenelle fizz. The tasting afterwards was equally superb. Tasted 5 different wines which were all fabulous. The lovely guide also offered to research local suppliers back home for us as we were restricted with what we could buy as flying home. Did buy a lovely large bottle of Si Irresistible which is cooking in the fridge as I write. Great way to spend a couple of hours whilst in Saumur.

Visited at the begining of September,We have visited there times before. We always call for our stock of sparkling wine.The main reception area has been extensively modernised since our last visit which i think has lost a little of its charm. The staff are always very friendly and helpful. The wine tasting is great. I would definately recommend a visit.
