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.
I found the tour on line and booked it because I couldn’t find better value. I was astounded by the value! Wendy is a great hostess, very knowledgeable, kind, very friendly and very well informed. I have been on a lot of wine tours and this was undoubtedly the best.
We spent a wonderful day at the Narbonne Food Hall followed by lunch at salt flats in Gruissan then went wine tasting, it was an absolute pleasure and privilege to spend the day with someone as knowledgeable as Kate, We left full of food and knowledge, I'd definitely recommend.
My husband and I spent a fantastic day with Wendy near the end of our visit to the south of France. For us she was part wine expert, part tour guide, part history buff, and part limo driver.
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!
