Tracy did a wonderful job for us yesterday. She was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions and more! The tour was a delight, and Tracy showed us the particular vineyards that produce our favorite wines. We would highly recommend her to everyone!

Tour: #112390, Private Walking Tour of Historic Beaune, Beaune, France    view tour
Date: Oct 7/19

I was very underwhelmed with this walking tour of Beaune given that I paid over $300USD. Tracy was great at finalizing our tour arrangements but the actual tour itself was lacking in depth and interesting information. There was a lot of walking around without much commentary on what was around us. The tour of the Hospice was excellent but given that I paid over $300 USD, the €17 entrance fee should have been included in our tour fee. Tour just not worth all of that money.

Tracy was an excellent guide. She is clearly extremely interested in the region and loves what she does. Our group of 4 had a lovely day with her; well-planned, great choices and a pleasant time all around!

Tour: Private Wine Tour in Burgundy around Beaune, Beaune, France
Date: Jun 15/19

Tracy is knowledgeable and loves this area. We were delighted with the tour. Big plus for us: she's English so she understood us, and because she's also fluent in French she was able to interpret when needed. Like at lunch, where the menu and all waitstaff were French and we weren't sure what we were ordering. Tracy, your tour was the highlight of our visit to Burgundy.

This my second tour with Tracy, very professional. Her knowledge of the region, history or wines are exceptional. This tour included my brother and his wife who had nerve ray been to Burgundy, Tracy found a way to balance both levels on knowledge. I would use again - and hope too.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Michael, it was a pleasure to see you in Burgundy again - it's fabulous when people come back and as usual the day passed all too quickly, one day is just never enough. Look forward to next time, hope Bobby enjoys his Marc de Bourgogne.

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

Date: Jul 16/17

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

Tour: Best of Burgundy, Beaune, France
Date: Jul 13/16

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

Tour: 1 Day Wine Tasting in Burgundy, Beaune, France
Date: Jul 2/15

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.

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.

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

Tour: Wine Tasting in Burgundy, Beaune, France
Date: Jul 28/11

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

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 :-)
