“Best Wine Tour in France”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

JP is an awesome tour guide. Funny, knowledgeable and happ, he is the best tour guide I have had in many trips around the world.

The wines are great and the cheese is well worth tasting.

Only suggestion I have for anyone is to take some water with you as the drive is non-stop to the first destination and also from the last to return. It is however well worth it and you get to meet many nice people from other countries also. 10 out of 10 JB!!

“Great way to experience the French view of wine”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

We found out about JB and the wine day tour through some new friends that we met while we were in Paris. We can confirm all of the positive things everyone else has said in other reviews.

What we found to be special about this day was the extensive knowledge JB shared about the wine culture in France, which we had absolutely NO understanding of. If you want to go to as many wineries as possible as quickly as possible, skip this tour. HOWEVER, if you want to understand what is unique and different about wine in France in comparison to the United States, or any other country, this is the tour for you. For instance, we were amazed to discover how much soil types affect the taste of a wine.

We cannot recommend this tour more if you love wine.

“Best tour we experienced !”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

We took the wine day tours on May 7th. JB was our guide. He was passionate about wine, informative, fun and gave us a wonderful tour, not just on wine but also the countryside and the beautiful villages in the area around the vineyards. We thoroughly enjoyed our day. We would highly recommend this for a great one day trip outside of Paris.

“We had an amazing time!”
Reviewed May 7, 2014 via mobile

I did this tour with my girlfriend and her parents. They are Chinese and all three were very much looking forward to this tour after watching a couple of Chinese documentaries on wine making and France.

They loved it! We visited a traditional market, a vinyard, the small town of Sancerre, and an old family owned Chateau/Castle.

JB was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about wine, the region we visited, and about the tour as a whole. He took a personal interest in us all, making the time to get to know us all individually on the bus.

He took loads of pictures and shared with us all at no charge. My girlfriend's father had no english but was very curious about the the wine manufacturing process to the point where he'd wander off and start pulling bottles of wine out of crates, or pushing buttons on the power hose while JB was trying to enlighten us all on the drawbacks of aging wine in oak barrels.

Both JB a the vineyard owner were very polite and understanding :)

At the end of the journey JB asked us what we'd be seeing next in Paris. He had some great suggestions and answered all of our questions about what to see and do in Paris.

I've been to Paris 8 times and this is one of the best things I've done. I'd strongly recommend.
