Such an amazing experience! Definitely will recommend you to book it! I would advice you to have some breakfast before that tour! Our meeting point has been changed, but we've been notified 2 days in advance. Small group of 8 +Guide/driver (Christopher, if im not wrong), perfectly speaks English and gave us all information during the tour. 3 stops around Golden Stones Village. 1st picknick stop by the Chapel with the beautiful views. 2nd stop -walk around Old village. 3rd stop by the vineyard Dominans where we learnt about grape planting, cultivation and how wine produced. Finished with the lovely wine tasting with some snacks.

With my husband and our children, we very much enjoyed our musical visit to Lyon. Our Spanish guide has a perfect command of his subject with his knowledge of history and music. He did a lot of research to talk to us and make us listen to all types of music from Lyonnais now or in the past! Interesting, surprising and instructive! And the drink break was good, especially in this cold weather! We recommend this musical ballad!

We are novices when it comes to this sort of thing, and so booked without knowing fully what to expect. However, we were totally blown away by the experience. Our guide, Vladimir, was superb and his knowledge of the area and its residents really shone through. The intimate size of a group of 6 meant that we all felt part and parcel of the discussions. This was the highlight of an altogether fascinating long weekend in Lyon.

Beaujolais is a very pretty area and well worth visiting. Ian our guide was knowledgeable both about the wines and history of area. We drove through little villages and saw lots of places you would never take yourself. Highly recommend.

There is not much I can add to the beauty of the French country side and the smooth taste of the Beaujolais wine. I would recommend everybody to take this one or better; the longer daily trip.
