Two tours, the half-day "Discovery" tour and the full-day "Passion" tour. The guides for both were very knowledgeable. The wine tasting on the Passion tour was first rate, with a terrific overview of excellent burgundy wines, but the two tastings on the full-day tour appeared last-minute and were unremarkable. The free time in Beaune was very nice. Both tours offered... More
