Stevie was our guide for the Passion Tour. And passion just about sums it up. Stevie shared so many insights and wonderful wines, and his love for the region and its produce was abundantly clear. He ensured that we enjoyed every part of our journey through Burgundy, and of course made sure we tasted the best wines the region had to offer. No hesitation in recommending this tour to anyone.

Our Authentica tour of Burgundy exceeded our expectations. Our guide was Michel, a retired high school principal, whose knowledge of wine-making, geology and the ways of Burgundy was impressive. His exceptional knowledge (and excellent English) made the tour informative, interesting and enjoyable. Two tastings were included on the tour (we purchased a third on our own during lunch break). The first of the two tastings was excellent; the second not as good, as the winery had less interesting wines and a less knowledgeable hostess. But Michel filled in the gaps whenever needed. We had a great time, and would highly recommend it for anyone interested in learning more about French wines.

I booked a half day "charm" wine tour from Authentica as part of my partner's birthday present. We travelled by train from Lyon to Dijon where the tour started (close to the railway station). The company had helpfully said they could accommodate our bags in the mini-bus. The tour was designed to go to Beaune and back to Dijon but we were staying in Beaune (like a party of four on the same tour), so the guide adjusted our tour to cover as much on the way down so we didn't miss things that would normally be covered on the way back to Dijon. The driver/guide was English as the whole party was English speaking. The guide was very knowledgeable about the area, wine making and burgundy in general. He made the tour very interesting. There were at least five stops on the tour ending with a tasting of six really good burgundy wines, three white and three red at the chateau Aloxe Corton which was interesting and informative. A very enjoyable wine tour. Would recommend.

Great day with Stevie and Authentica. We learned a lot about the Region it's wine, and all key sites and history. No trip to Burgundy is complete without them.

Our guide - Stephen - was fantastic. We took the Grand Cru wine tour, and we learned so much and got to taste some very nice and interesting wines. The people we met were awesome and it was a super treat for us. This is highly recommended!!! My mother (80) also loved it! It was only the two of us experiencing.
