“Small,varied and well thought out”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

This was our small (including tall Roger) groups second long weekend trip with Wendy and she did not disappoint us. We visited six small but quite different vineyards with different techniques, terroir and grape varieties (important to Mark, unlike Alison who just requires it to be red, white or rose and in a glass ASAP!). All the vineyards were run by very interesting people with a story to tell. Lunches and dinners were all memorable and we would never have been able to find them without Wendy's local knowledge. A third trip will be planned.

“Fantastic Day Out”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

This must have been our 10th Wine Tour that my partner and I have been on with wonderful Wendy of Vin en Vacances. And again it did not disappoint. The domains we visited were fabulous and of course Wendy's easy going and carefree manner, along with her in-depth expertise made for an enjoyable and very informative experience. The lunch was again another winner... where Wendy finds these incredible restaurants tucked away in small villages is beyond me. Do not hesitate to book any of her tours. You will not be disappointed.

“Fantastic Wine Tours”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

We did three one-day tours with Wendy and they really couldn't have been better. Wendy knows the windy roads of Languedoc and the excellent wineries along the way. The van was comfortable and well air conditioned. We visited some great wineries and in most cases met the winemaker. We had a lovely picnic lunch one day and ate at two fabulous restaurants on the others. Wendy is very knowledgeable about the region - it's history and its wine. I am not a wine novice and I learned a lot on these tours. I hope to do more wine touring in France one day soon and I hope in the region that I choose there is another Wendy!

“Informative, great wine and great fun”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

Marcel was our guide for the wine tour. He's a very friendly Dutch sommelier with an infectious enthusiasm for wine. The tour took in two leisurely visits, the first to Domaine de la Dourbie hosted by co-owner Laurent. I enjoyed the informative tour followed by tasting 6 wines followed by an excellent picnic by the lake in the vineyard, accompanied by more wine. The second tour to Domaine Sainte Cecile du Parc hosted by owner Christine was exceptional too. We tasted 6 wonderful wines while seated in her wonderful garden with stunning views of Languedoc. The aim of the tour is to demonstrate the growing production of exceptional wine in the region and it certainly achieves its aim. I particularly enjoyed the small group tour (there were 6 of us) and the warm welcome offered throughout. The door to door pick up and drop of is great and the tour is very good value for money. I loved the wine so much that i bought a number of bottles and the tour company arranged for these to be shipped for a very modest fee. Book now!

“Excellent value for money”
Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

We had a fantastic trip today! Peter Core, owner of the winery Mas Gabriel is a great guy and his wines are very, very good.
Our host Marcel van Baalen was as expected exceptional. Very knowledgable, positive, sociable and kind. You should book this tour when in the area, highly recommended.
