We chose a wine tasting for our honeymoon trip and absolutely loved it! We learned so much and had a fun time. Thanks to Jean Claude for sharing his knowledge with us!
While it was a rainy day, it was a great walking tour. Toured the Left Bank and Jean-Claude was an excellent guide AND an excellent wine master. Very informative about the area, history, the wine regions of France and educating us on how to better understand the wine regions and also how to get the most of our tasting experience. Made three stops at local wine bars and tasted three different wines. Great experience.
The guide or better the expertize was perfect.
