"Colin was amazing! Best Day in France! He was knowledgeable and friendly. We tasted our way through a small portion on the Loire valley. Great wine! My only complaint was that we didn't have enough time! I wish we would have stayed longer. Absolutely do his tour if you plan to come to the Loire valley. Worth every penny!
Thank you Colin!"

"If you want to learn about wine from an expert, take Colin's tour. He has a great personality and knows so much about wine (and history) that you will gain tremendously from his wisdom. We have been on many wine tours that basically provide nothing but transportation; Colin provides so much more. We are already looking forward to our next trip to the Loire Valley and plan to bring more people along to enjoy Colin's wine tour. I particularly enjoyed his sense of humor, which helped make the tour even more enjoyable. Colin's tour was definitely the highlight of our two weeks in France.."
