A Recent Review of this tour

We spent one of the most enjoyable days of any vacation going to Cognac with Beatrice. A perfectly planned day was spent in touring the château of Francis I, now the home of cognac producer Otard, as well as a personal tour of the house of Rémy Martin. Lunch, on our own, was arranged at a marvelous, atmospheric restaurant in the heart of the old ville. This tour was an outstanding combination of history, information, personal attention and comfort.
