We did the 1/2 day private Beaujolais wine tour with Olivier and had a fabulous time! The tour lasted ~5 hours (including driving), which was the perfect amount of time for us. Olivier was very knowledgeable about the wines and was all around a very nice person. In addition to the facts about wine, he gave us information about the... More

The Beaujolais and Perouges tour run by Olivier at Kanpai Tours was a remarkable experience! To begin the tour, Olivier took us to the medieval village of Oingt, which was insanely beautiful. Olivier was sure to point out places where we could glimpse spectacular views of vineyards and the French country side. Olivier guided us through the streets, explained the... More

This was a fabulous day which totally exceeded my expectations. Olivier drove us through beautiful countryside and gave us time to explore two gorgeous villages, one in the southern Beaujolais (Oingt) and the other being the medieval village of Perouges. Add to that a wonderful wine tasting at a small, family owned vineyard, lunch at Theize and a delightful small... More

We did the half day Syrah wine tour. We went to two vineyards and the tour lasted from 2:00 to about 6:30. Our only problem was locating the meeting spot at the tourism office in Bellacour Place. Once we found it, Olivier was just where he said he would be waiting. Although I do not drink wine, my family does,... More

I booked very late but Olivier was very accommodating and helpful. Meet up location is very convenient next to the tourism office in central Lyon. The mini bus parks outside the door. I took the half day tour to Boujalais. We drove around an hour north of Lyon. After we departed the main road the drive through the countryside was... More

I am writing this review on behalf of my parents who visited Lyon last week. I booked tours for them through Kanpai Tours whom I just found by checking out tours available in Lyon. I have to say my parents said that they could not recommend them highly enough. Olivier was fantastic and they enjoyed their trip which was very... More
