Relaxing yet informative tour
It was a great pleasure to have Victor as our guide for a one-day tour to Loire Valley. He has great passion and knowledge in wine. The site and winery that we visited were perfectly arranged. I would highly recommend this tour/Victor to anyone who is interested in exploring Loire with a true expert.

A wonderful day in the Loire
Our tour was with Victor and we got the luck of the draw and no one else booked on our day. The tour opened with a personal pickup complete with croissants and bottles of water. Victor took us to Château Chambord where we explored the castle and gardens at our leisure. Afterward we ate lunch at a fantastic restaurant carved into the face of a hill. The food was fantastically prepared and we got to chat, eat and have several wines of the region. Finally we visited an organic and biodynamic vineyard where we walked among the vines and Victor explained the uniqueness of the terroir. After the gorgeous walk and talk we got to sample several wines from the region and tour the caves with one of vineyard employees. Truly a wonderful day and quite a value.

Fantastic Trip
My wife and I enjoyed this day trip with Victor Chevrot of Wine Passport last week. I cannot overstate how much fun we had. Victor selected three Champagne Houses for us to visit--one very large, one small and one medium sized. Each was different but all greeted us with friendly and knowledgeable staff. We had had a very nice lunch, paired with different champagnes at one, and tastings at the other two. We visited the extensive cellars of the large house and had a tour of the processing equipment and fermentation tanks at the other. We also visited the Chapel at the Abby of Hautvillers and Dom Perignon's final resting place. Victor is very knowledgeable. We could not imagine a better guide or better experience. Without hesitation, I recommend this excursion.
