Olivier was amazing, his knowledge of the area and his passion sharing his knowledge is wonderful. He guided s to three great wineries in the Rhone valley and ended in Tain l'Hermitage. We enjoyed our trip and his professionalism. I would love to return and have him guide me again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, Thank you so much for your comment. We had a great day despite the wind. I hope to see you again in the future. Best regards. Olivier

Date: Oct 15/16

Olivier planned a perfect wine and food experience for us. We visited two wineries we would never have found on our own, or, been able to fully understand the process, not having enough French for an in depth conversation. On our journey we had a history lesson on all things wine as it related to the Rhone river valley, thousands of years ago. He scheduled a most fabulous lunch at la Pyramide in Vienne as the highlight of our day! We highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mary, Thank you so much for your comment. I had great time with you and Baxter. Please don't hesitate to contact if you still want to order wine, I would be pleased to organize the shipping. Best regards, Olivier

Fantastic tour. We spent a beautiful afternoon going to two wineries and touring some of the wine country. The choice of venues were excellent - a small/family run establishment and a larger operation. Olivier was very informative and brought us to some beautiful places. He also provided the most delicious cheese and bread to supplement our tastings! Highly recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mary Ellen. Thank you so much for your comment. What a nice day we had with your family ! Hope to see you again for a longer stay in Lyon or in Burgundy. Best regards. Olivier

We appreciated that Oliver was able to modify the tour to accommodate our late afternoon travel schedule without compromising the key elements of the tour. The museum in Vienne was a wonderful surprise and should not be missed. The winery visits were interesting and informative - particularly meeting the winemakers. Oliver put together a wonderful personalized tour which made for a very enjoyable day.

Great day. Olivier proposed a well thought out tour with tasting appointments at two wineries and lunch reservations at an excellent restaurant with fantastic views. The two wineries we visited were very different; one modern and the other was a small family run winery. Our day included a brief tour of a museum and walk through Roman ruins. Olivier brought a bottle of wine for us to taste. The wine was produced using a recipe from Roman times and was a wonderful addition to a fun day.

This review is long over due...My experience with Olivier was exceptional. I arranged a one-day private guided tour of Cornas and Tain Hermitage with Olivier. From being greeted at the train station in Lyon to the private guided tour around Tain Hermitage and up to the panoramic views for a delicious handmade lunch and wine at Le Rhône vers le Nord depuis Tournon, Oliver and his business partner, Alexandre, provided a tour beyond my expectations. Five Star Rating! Thank you Oliver and Alex!
