This was a great event. About 2 hours, 10 wines 5 w,5 r. And matching cheeses end bread. You actually discover new flavors and wine types. You could never do this on your own. All in English. Sat with 8 total and a sommelier with a masters degree in wines. I may add this to every Paris trip we do.

Super great tour with small group! The bikes are in great shape and there were a lot of stops. Our guide explained everything in detail and the stops were never more than 10 minutes away.
