What a fabulous day with Carlos!! Throughout the years my husband and I have taken countless small groups tours and rarely have we ever had a tour with a better guide, more perfect weather, more delicious wine and exciting vistas!! Carlos was so knowledgeable, not only about wine and history, but also about basic humanity! Our very long 10 hour day was filled with wine, delicious lunch, much laughter and two amazing Castles high above Languedoc/Roussillon!
Carlos went out of his way to make the tour both interesting and insightful! I cannot recommend this tour group highly enough and will be touting its advantages to all my clients and friends!! Many thanks again to Wendy and most especially, Carlos!!

I contacted Wendy since she offers wine tours in the nearby area. Our ship was docked in Port Vendres for the day and we wanted to do a wine tour. Wendy planned a nice tour for us even though many local businesses are closed on Sundays. We went to a lovely small winery and the owner seemed very genuine and nice. He explained everything about the wines and then we sampled many different wines - he even took the care to serve the wines in the correct glasses. Our guide Carlos was great and assisted with translation and explained the wine making process. We also went to the medieval village of Castlenou and walked around the pretty little town. A three course lunch with wine was included and was fantastic. We ate at a locally owned restaurant which we would not have found on our own. The food was great and we ate in a pretty little courtyard surrounded by greenery and flowers. We then visited Collioure and sampled some olive oils. We enjoyed the beautiful town which has been painted by many artists. Overall, Wendy and Carlos provided us with a wonderful tour despite that it was Sunday and many businesses were closed.

Both the Walking With Wendy Tour and the Travel from Barcelona to Carcassone tour with Carlos were beyond our expectations. Vin en Vacances understands that they aren't just in the tourism business, but also the hospitality business; we learned so much but we also felt a warm welcome to the region that made us want to stay forever! The wine tastings in Catalonia and Lagueduc were pairings of lovely wine and the unique experience of meeting the wine maker. The breath-taking scenery, the food, the wine and the sense of history we experienced during these two days gave us a real feel for the region that we could never have captured without these excellent guides.

We had a fantastic day. Was perfect. Marcel was expert in keeping us going and also giving us space and time ourselves. The boat trip was just long enough and time to wet our appetites with some nice wine.

Can thoroughly recommend this trip. Excellent lunch at lovely local restaurant since the weather was a little tricky and great fun was had at the olive growers and the winery after lunch.

Much appreciated

We had a wonderful experience traveling the region with a very knowledgeable person. The wind tasting was excellent and lots of fun having a tasting on the Midi canal. It was a wonderful day
