Delightful Vineyard Walk - From the moment we set foot on the picturesque vineyard grounds, we knew we were in for a treat. Our guide, Marc, was a font of knowledge and passion for all things wine-related. His anecdotes about the region's winemaking history and Swiss viticulture added depth and context to our experience. We were treated to an array of interesting wines, from crisp whites to robust reds. Marc's expertise truly shone as he guided us through the tasting notes, helping us appreciate the nuances of each pour. The wine walk also offered stunning views of the Swiss countryside in an idyllic setting. No hiking experience is required.

Memorable wine making tour - I’ve been to a few wine tours, but this is by far the most interesting and memorable. Marc is truly knowledgeable about the history of wine making in Lutry, and obviously passionate with what he does. He also paid special attention to details, e.g walking gear and food allergies. The vineyard we visited has a very unique way of storing wines (no spoilers), and we even have an expected performance at the cellar! Our tour was around 3 hrs with a stop for some tasting and bites. If you are in Geneva or Lausanne, this tour will be the highlight of your trip.

Amazing guided tour of Lavaux!! - We had the most amazing experience touring Lavaux with Marc! He was an extraordinary tour guide - both extremely knowledgeable and also super personable and fun to be with. We had a blast getting to know Lavaux with Marc and his storytelling and intimate knowledge of the area kept us engaged throughout our time together. We've done a lot of wine tours of different areas and Marc was by far the best guide we've had. Plus he's a great guy and gave us tons of recommendations for the next leg of our trip in Zurich and places in NYC to visit to continue to experience Swiss wines. We enthusiastically recommend Marc - he's the best!!

A Walk to Remember - We had the pleasure of touring the Lavaux wineries with Marc. To start, he is knowledgeable, personable, and extremely customer oriented. The 3 hour tour through the beautiful Swiss countryside was made all the more enjoyable with great wine and cheese selections. This is exactly the tour we had in mind and Marc did not disappoint! Thank you!

A fun walk with picturesque views, friendly locals, and great wine - We’ve done a lot of tours and this one is definitely one of our favorites. They reached out weeks ahead of time to help coordinate the train and after I told them we couldn’t check into our hotel by the start of the tour, they arranged accommodations to pick up and drop off our bags. Marc led the tour - an informative and personal walk through the vines with stops at wineries along the way. He’s fun, and passionate. Marc lives and is clearly known in the area so our breaks at the wineries felt more like stopping in to see friends. Great photo opportunities! Almost looks unreal. The wine is great too.

Unique Wine Walk Experience - Marc's tour is a unique experience and a great way to feel like a local! We enjoyed our wine walk with him greatly and cannot thank him enough for being flexible in re-scheduling after we had travel delays. We hope to see Marc again on another adventure, whether in Europe or the US. Thanks again Marc! Sarah & Jason

Wonderful afternoon tour… do not miss - We stumbled on this tour and so glad we did. We took the train from Geneve which required one change but was easily managed. We visited Lutry before the vineyard walk. Our guide Marc is a highly qualified and knowledgeable sommelier. The walk and wine tasting were a feast for senses. Marc engaged the group with interesting vineyard and wine making discussion. The tour was completed at a lovely spot that I will leave as a surprise. Cheers to Marc! Thank you for a great afternoon in Lavaux!
