This was my third tour with Vin en Vacances over the past few years, and I can say without hesitation that this last tour was as interesting and enlightening as my first tour with them in 2015. Each time I have walked away with a better understanding and appreciation of Languedoc wines. If you are curious about the wines of this region I highly recommend Wendy Gedney and her team. You will learn about a variety of wines and also about the region. Their knowledge is imparted with grace and humour which makes a day spent with Vin en Vacances a real highlight of any vacation. Highly recommended!

We wanted to book a full day private tour which included a visit to Carcassonne. Tom organized the day for us. Carlos picked us up at 9am and we enjoyed a morning tour of Carcassonne, with a trip to Lagrasse for lunch and an afternoon tour of this picturesque village. Carlos was an excellent guide, combining his knowledge of the area’s history with good humour. Lunch in Lagrasse was a highlight of the week. Tom and Wendy were easy to work with and created a memorable day for us. I hope we can find an opportunity to work with Vin en Vacances during a future trip.

This is the second time we've worked with Wendy and the team and they are truly exceptional. Their knowledge of the regions history, landscape, wine and food is extensive. Their story telling is engaging and entertaining. They know the small wine makers that are taste makers for the region. We curated 3 different experience for our group of 20 with the team and each day was as good as the other. I highly recommend working with them and / or enjoying one of their pre-planned tours. You won't be sorry.

We've had the pleasure of two work trips organised with Vin en Vacances, and both have been fabulous. Forget your usual tours around a winery; this is always special, getting to small, local producers and making us feel like we've had a real treat.

Kate was fantastic again and the variety of an olive oil tasting, a trip on the Canal Du Midi including wine, a trip to Minerve plus a great array of wines gave us another thoroughly enjoyable experience. The service of Vin En Vacances is fantastic and has never disappointed. A great trip!

This was a great evening. We tasted different wines with each course and both food and wines were really good. The surprise was a muscat to drink with the cheeses and it really worked. Highly recommend it.

Wendy arranged the most incredible trip for my group of 40 guests who travelled to Carcassonne to celebrate my wife's birthday. We visited a wine chateau in the Minervois countryside where we were greeted by the owners and tasted many of their delicious varietals. The had the most perfect al fresco lunch outside on the grounds of the chateau then enjoyed a cruise on the Canal du Midi. Wendy's team were incredibly friendly and seemed to be having just as much fun as we were. It was truly a perfect day and the highlight of our time in France. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

We did two full day tours with Wendy and Kate and totally fell in love with the area. We tasted many wines at four vineyards, toured several quaint villages with uniquely French scenery. Their extensive knowledge of the wine making processes and vineyard peculiarities really expanded our knowledge base. We were impressed with the quality of wine in the region and can’t wait to come back! Thank you Wendy and Kate!!
