Rainy day tour - It was a rainy day but it didn’t impact us much. Nice visits to two wineries. We also ate lunch at a restaurant. Eddy was a knowledgeable guide who was very accommodating for our group. He even made sure to bring umbrellas.

A Great Tour - Eddy our tour guide was fantastic. The two wineries we visited were amazing and the staff at both wineries were attentive and engaging. Our tour guide took us to an amazing lunch that included wine we could not easily get in the US. Overall it was a great experience.

Educational, Relaxed, Fun Wine Day - Our tour guide, Eddy, was extremely knowledgeable about wine. He was also very passionate about the Beaujolais region where he also lives. He went above and beyond to ensure everyone felt included and a valued participant in the day.

Fun Day Tasting Beaujolais - My wife and I are from southern California and we love wine and enjoy touring our local wineries. While visiting Lyon we thought it would be fun to tour the Beaujolais wine growing area. This tour, guided by Matilde, was just perfect for us. The timing (start, duration and ending) was casual and just right. We toured two wineries, and the local wine makers were knowledgable, informative, fun and generous with their offerings. Lunch at a local restaurant was not included, but was delicious and very reasonable. We really enjoyed this tour, and if ever in Lyon again we would sign up for another of this company's tours.

Eddie is the best! - My husband and I had a fantastic time with Eddie traveling to three wineries in the Beaujolais region. Immediately he had some fun conversation starters/games in the van to get the group aquainted. It was a great ice breaker and from that point on we could tell he had a great knowledge of the region and the wines we were going to taste. This wine tour is not just about drinking wine but experiencing history, architechture and culture of an incredible area of France. On our second stop we had a great lunch. The restaurant had a great selection of soups and main courses and a fix prix selection of menus. I insist on ordering the lamb if it is available. Eddie is the type of guy you would invite to your house for a dinner party any chance you get. We feel we have a friend in France for sure and hope to stay in touch as he had wonderful recommendations for restaurants etc in Lyon. We are big fans of this wine now and once home ordered a case of the amazing Rose from Matthieu at Chateau des Bachelards. One bit of advice I will give you is when making your reservation please be sure to share a number where Eddie can call you if he is looking for you at the meeting point. He is very diligent and concerned about making sure he collects all of his guests to get on the road and make the most of the day. It's a full day and he packs a lot in so be early! Merci Eddie! A bientot, Kerry and Michael

Beautiful Beaujolais - Raphaelle was a wonderful guide and did a great job of translating for our group of 7 English speakers. We visited three family run wineries and had lunch at a great local place with a panoramic view. We would never have found these places without the tour so it felt very special. A great group, and a memorable experience

Small group experience of family run vineyards - Wonderful experience, the vineyards were small, family run businesses that I would never have found on my own. Eddy, our tour guide, was knowledgeable and helpful, and was very patient with my 85 year old father, who I brought with me on the tour. The small group size made it personable, and it was an experience I won’t forget. I highly recommend this tour.

Great tour, great wine, but lunch logistics unclear - We had a great time overall and Eddy was a very knowledgeable and friendly guide! The one negative point was related to the lunch. Since we saw in the tour description that lunch was not included in the tour, we packed our own sandwiches. During the tour, however, the guide brought everyone to a pre-picked lunch restaurant where we were told after we sat down that it would be rude not to buy anything. Not wanting to be rude, we ordered a couple of small plates at the restaurant and then ate our sandwiches after leaving, but it would have been much better to know beforehand that there was a predetermined lunch restaurant, especially since we were not really given any alternative for lunch.
