We were together for a day and a half ( wish it had been longer) I have visited and toured many wine regions— this. Informative, professional, and oh yes - the wines.was the tops. Tracy did a wonderful job in matching my interests and then providing top notch recommendations.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Michael, Thanks for the feedback, I am glad you enjoyed it as it was a lovely end to the season. Enjoy your wine and I hope hope you enjoyed the ballet and the opera in Paris, I bet it was stunning. Hope to meet you again some time, there are still many little places to be discovered, Kind regards, Tracy
Tracy took us on a great day out! Beautiful locations. She was very accommodating of the fact that we had 2 tired children. She was friendly, informative and gave us the perfect amount of free time at each location. We had a lovely lunch together in Flavigny which we would never have tackled on our own without speaking French. We learnt so much in our day together. A must do tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Joanne, Thank you for your lovely comments, as a mum to a mum, I understand! It was lovely to meet you all and I am glad you enjoyed the day, your kids were absolutely charming, well done, Kind regards Tracy
Tracy has a busy life apart from her guiding activity. She handled the latter competently with us but not with degree of animation and enthusiasm we have experienced in similar situations elsewhere. Fifteen minutes at the start spent on introductory discussion would have been good. We did not consider the total experience particularly good value.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am sorry to hear the tour did not live up to your expectations as all my prior feedback has been extremely positive and your friends told me what a lovely day they had had and how much they learnt. Changing the itinerary on the spot due to you having visited the highlight the day before did throw me a little at the start so I apologise for that. As for value, I find it hard to comment as I have never given people a discount before and doubt I will in the future now, Kind regards Tracy

Our tour of Burgundy was excellent. Tracy accommodated our late arrival into Beaune by adding a tasting the following day. She was extremely knowledgeable about the region and its history and provided us with access to a couple of great winemakers. We were very satisfied with our experience and highly recommend this tour and Tracy.
Shellie ScottUnited States
She is an Expert in the Burgundy wines. Her selection of wineries was broad and perfect for a first time overall experience. Learned so much. Can even read French wine labels now and able to judge prices. Although we have taken tasting courses and toured California, Oregon, and New Zealand tasting wines we stilled learned a great deal about wine tasting from Tracy. She is a native English speaker and has a wonderful open personality. Our short visit was maximized by her experience. Highly recommend
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Shellie, Thank you for your kind words, it is lovely to hear that you really enjoyed your two days and I am glad that we achieved your objectives.

Tracy was very knowledgeable about the Medieval Burgundy area, great tour all around!
Stephen LuongoUnited States
My wife and I were very pleased with the tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided a comprehensive overview of the Burgundy wine region. We learned far more than anticipated. The pace of the tour was comfortable and we were given access to a number of excellent wineries where we met some very gracious owners.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Stephen, Thank you for the lovely comments, glad you enjoyed your day as much as I did and hope you and your family enjoy the wine. I received a lovely email from the winery in Pommard thanking me for the WineFlite information and apologising for the confusion we seemed to cause! It certainly finished the day on a high All the best Tracy

Great first visit to the region. I had not pre-planned places that I wanted to see which I think was best - there was so much there that I would have been disappointed had I missed something! Tracy was a great guide and modified our outing based on my interests - which was greatly appreciated. We traveled around the Beaune area in a very comfortable vehicle and ended the visit in the town center of Beaune.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Melody, Thanks for the feedback, I'm glad you enjoyed our day and your stay in your little french apartment without a corkscrew! You'l be pleased to know that it is even colder now than when you were here but I will be heading back to Chateauneuf for another of those delicious hot chocolates!

Tracy managed to check all my wish list items for my dream tour in Burgundy. The wineries were varied and the history lessons along with the wine facts were right on target. Tracy had great suggestions on buying wine area maps. The whole day was very relaxed and we never felt rushed at any winery. Tracy took the time to show us the different land parcels and stopped often so my husband could take all the photos he wanted. The best part was she knew how to arrange for the wine to be shipped back to USA.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was lovely to meet you Dawn and I thoroughly enjoyed our day, it was great to have the company of a lady that knew her wine and knew what she liked.
Tracy was very knowledgeable and very nice. She tried to show us the best of Bourgogne with a day tour which is very difficult. Definitely we will use your services in the future
We had booked both the wine tasting tour and the historical tour of Beaune on two consecutive days and Tracy contacted us ahead of time and suggested combining the two over two days, in other words some history and tastings on each of the two days. This proved ideal as we were learning the nuances of the Burgundy wine district and lunching and tasting on both days. Tracy is very knowledgeable on both the history of the district and the wine industry.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Noel and Lyn, Hope you managed to avoid the traffic on black Saturday and your retirement is continuing uninterrupted! Have a great time relaxing in your villa and enjoy practising your wine tasting with the wines you bought. All the best Tracy
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks very much for the feedback. I hope you sorted out your 'retirement' and you are both happy with the result. Don't hesitate to keep in touch and all the best for the future Tracy

Tracy was well-prepared, flexible, and delightful. She can ably guide tours for amateurs seeking an introduction to Bourgogne as well as sophisticated wine connoisseurs. She brought us to 3 vineyards of various locations and quality, and got us a taste of a grand cru at one of them. She offers local color and insight, including interesting perspectives on life and raising a family in this part of France. Despite the rain during our tour, we had a terrific time and learned a lot. Joe, Philadelphia, PA
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Joe, I am so glad you enjoyed the day and the rain didn't spoil it. Believe it or not the weather has got worse - we are now looking at the end of August for the harvest. However - I will finally be away on my own holiday and enjoying some time with the family. Hope your wife enjoyed her course and your friend enjoyed her rose wine! Tracy

Tracy organised and conducted a thoroughly enjoyable private wine tasting tour for our small party. We were particularly impressed with her knowledge, enthusiasm and easy, clear communication skills; as well as the care she took to tailor the visits and tastings to our specific requirements. The day included big hitting villages and domaines, however, we were delighted with an introduction to less well known (and affordable!) wines and growers, as we'd requested. We firmly recommend Tracy & will use again
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So pleased to hear had a great time, I thoroughly enjoyed your company and look forward to seeing you again. Savour your wine when it arrives and think of Burgundy every time you drink it. PS I'm back at Domaine Conte Senard this week for some more of those delicious potatoes :-)
