- La Bourgogne
We are just back in the US and able to share our thoughts on our tour with Sonia. In a word “excellent” but will not leave it there. In our three weeks visiting Portugal, Spain and France we only booked three tours. We wanted to make our own agenda as we traveled. We must say though we are so glad we book this tour. It well exceeded our expectation. Our entire trip was about wine and food and Sonia added a level of knowledge of both, especially the wine, that taught us French wine that we did not know. The country side was magnificent and she could tell us wine history from each of our stops. You could also see the level of respect she had for the business owners we encountered as well as their respect for her. The lunch at La Maison was much more then a lunch. It was a dining experience as well as an education in wine pairing. We loved Damian and Ben also, who we met along the way. We never felt rushed at any stop and certainly feel this tour added a special day. We will never forget it and would recommend you to anyone. Thank you, Sharon
It was an enjoyable experience with a very knowledgeable guide. Jacky
Our tour was very enjoyable, our tour guide was fantastic - lovely young lady with amazing knowledge of the wines of the area and a great willingness to share what she knows. She was extremely patient with us and allowed all of our comments and questions to come out in a great manner. Jackie
We’re certain to come back and relish Burgundy with you again. It was truly unforgettable, thanks to you, truly.
First, I wanted to say THANK YOU again for such a great experience in Burgundy. Shannon and I really enjoyed spending our 2.5 days with you! Thank you so much Sonia! Hope all is well!
Many thanks for Saturday, you provided a very professional service. Thanks again and hope to use you again.
We hired our driver, Sonia, for the three days in Beaune. She was incredible and very professional. We got a van for the four of us. Very comfortable, very reasonable. Based out of Dijon. Very highly recommended! We did not have to drive once after arriving in Beaune.
I appreciate the excellent service that you have provided me over email and would really hope to engage your services the next time we plan our trip to France.
Excellent dans tout les aspects: explications, palette des vins dégustées, foto stops, visite de Beaune, voiture, itinéraire, connaissance d'anglais etc. Un grand merci à notre guide Sonia pour une expérience inoubliable!
We booked a full day, and it was one of our favorite days of the trip. Our tour guide Sonia was EXTREMELY knowledgeable about the local wines, geography, and culture. We are hardly wine connoisseur, but felt more than adequate to tackle fancy wine with her help. The day included a visit to a larger winery in the morning on the way to Beaune. This included a tasting of three chardonnay and three pinot noirs, including premier and grand crus. The cellar was amazing to look around in, and the ambiance while tasting was great. Sonia told us about the different years and what kind of crops those produced, as well as what to look for when buying the wines. It was very helpful. We drove along the roads and even stopped at Domanee Conti just to take a picture outside the winery known for some of the most EXPENSIVE wines in the world. Sadly, we didn't taste any, but they don't really do that there. On the way back to Dijon we stopped at another winemaker, but this one, a small "boutique" winemaker. The house was absolutely beautiful with a gorgeous Burgundy roof. We loved our visit here and loved the wines. Once again, three Chardonnay, and three Pinot Noir. On our way back to Dijon, we took the road through each of the little villages just to get a feel for each little town. I would recommend to anyone, wine expert or not. It was a great day in a great region of the country!
Beautiful scenery and educational tour. My knowledge of Burgundy wine was very limited before this trip, but I learned loads in one day about the regions, the classifications, and how to read the labels etc. The drive through all the vineyards is beautiful (we were helped by perfect weather), and our guide (Sonia) was very knowledgeable and lovely. (Sonia so sorry we didn't think about tipping until later; please let us know if there is a way we can transfer it to you). We tasted 12 wines, including grands crus, and didn't feel any pressure to buy (though I did a couple of bottle). Highly recommended.
Sonia is an excellent guide. Sonia's knowledge of the area and the wines is amazing. Having her take us through two Châteaus and the tasting of their wines was truely educational and fun. The villages and vineyards are really beautiful. We are very thankful for the full day tour. Thank you Sonia for a memorable Burgundy wine experience.
I would like to thank You for an unforgettable day,I have really enjoyed it. Everything(the planning,the guide,the atmosphere of the tour and its format)was great. Especially I would like to mention Sonya's performance. It was very pleasant,clear and convincing.. I would definitely return and take your other tours, especially the ''EMOTION'' one,which was not available on the dates I was Dijon. I have also reviewed the tour on the ''TripAdvisor'' where some pictures where also added(See the link below and picture below) Kind regards, Andrey
We were totally happy with the tour. Our guide, Sonia, arrived exactly on time. The car was very comfortable. Sonia was an excellent tour guide. She was very knowledgeable about the history of wine making, the Burgundy area and the individual vineyards and their wines. She has a personality which made our afternoon both informative and also a lot of fun. We thoroughly enjoyed her company. We would certainly recommend the company and our duide to friends.
Nous avons passe une merveilleuse après midi avec Sonia qui a partagé avec nous ses connaissances et son amour de ce patrimoine viticole si particulier ! A recommander !!
Hi Sonia, Many thanks for these photos. We had such a wonderful time with you in Burgundy. Best, Peter
Nous avons passé une excellente journée en Bourgogne avec Sonia. Grace à elle, nous avons vu tant de choses pendant une journée seulement: des vignobles, caves, une table d'hote, nous avons appris beaucoup sur le vin bourgignon, et elle nous montré des paysages magnifiques. Une très belle experience!
Absolutely wonderful experience. Sonya's attention to detail is amazing. We chose the Grand Cru tasting. She picked us up in a brand new Mercedes. Car was perfectly clean. She provided us with an amazing experience. Sonya may not be the cheapest option but she is by far in a way the best option. Myself, my friends, and my family will continue to use Sonya as long as she will allow. What an amazing trip.
The Grand Cru Tour of Grand Crus! Sonia is the ABSOLUTE BEST when it comes to planning exclusive unique experiences all over Burgundy. For our last trip (we are repeat customers!), she organized several days of Grand Cru tastings. My favorite was the horizontal tasting of Grand Crus from each of the 7 Chablis vineyards while overlooking those vineyards! My husband's favorite days were focused on reds - the tasting she arranged at *** " and Clos de Vougeot were out of this world. Sonia can truly handle anything you ask her to do for you - her driving is impeccable, she's professional, well spoken (excellent English), she is extremely knowledgeable about all things Burgundy, and she organizes truly one of a kind experiences that you should not miss. We can't recommend Sonia and Burgundy Emotions highly enough. She is amazing! For our next trip, we'll put everything in her hands, from lodging to tastings, a hot air balloon trip, and who knows what else she will have come up with by then. We are already looking forward to it.
Exceptional Experience! Sonia was truly an exceptional tour guide for us during our tour. My girlfriend and I are by no means experts in wine and yet she was very patient with us and happy to answer any and all questions we had. The wines we tasted were truly magnificent and the lunch we had was one of our favorite meals we had in France. Would highly recommend this to anyone with a love of wine or if you are just getting interested in it.
