Uncomfortable Host. Not worth the money.

Host was difficult to understand and sweating profusely. No detail given on wine cellar. Host made derogatory allegations against California wines instead of comparisons to explain differences only.

I learned a lot about French wine! I tasted 3 types of wine. The history of wine and how it’s grown, processed, and categorized was fascinating. The wine sommelier was excellent! I really enjoy the tour/tasting.

Average tour…nothing special. Short tour with 3 wine samples only. IMO not worth price of admission.

Wonderful tour for newcomers to French wine!

I brought my cousin on this tour (pictured) as it was her first time out of the United States and first time in France. She enjoys drinking wine but doesn’t know much about production, harvest, different regions etc. so I thought this tour would be a fun way for her to learn. Our sommelier/guide was so knowledgeable and engaging. The location is unassuming, but the cellar and decor itself are quite lovely. You get three pretty nice sized glasses or wine throughout the hour tour and at the end, you can go through caves du louvre shop and buy some wine, crackers, tapenade etc. I’m not one for very long tours in which I feel like I’m in a classroom, and this tour never made me feel that way. Perfect amount of time and great experience. I highly recommend, especially for people who don’t know much about wine or never been wine tasting in Europe.

Great experience as a birthday gift. Learned a lot about wine in France and the three tasted wines where very good. We liked the location and the funny guide. One hour is not much time, nevertheless we did not have the feeling of a hurry.

This is an amazing tour. You should do this at the beginning of your trip it will not disappoint you. We tasted some great wine and I purchased some to bring home with me. I visited in April 2019. I was travelling alone as I went to visit family in Paris. My tour was LES CAVES DU LOUVRE

This was a great experience. we learned so much about wine and its history. The cellar was filled with so much interesting artifacts and it was so great to be there an experience it. The wine tasting consisted of 3 different types of wine. We were a small group so we were able to ask more questions. It was fascinating!

We all loved this tour, the sommelier was well versed on wines, from creating them, what regions produce the best wines and even how to store them. She was sweet, kind and funny. I bought 4 bottles before I left and love them.

Thoroughly enjoyed the visit and the group I was with was also fun to be with. The sommalier was knowledgeable and made learning about wines interesting and answered everyone's questions. At the end of the tour you can purchase wine including the ones you tasted during the tour.

Right from the time we planned our trip to Paris, we were very keen to experience the French wine culture and this tour totally gave us what we wanted. Right from giving us a history of the importance of wine in French cuisine, to identifying the the various kinds of wine, to tasting the different varieties and understanding the entire marketing and branding of the same, this tour was an absolute match winner. Special mention to our sommelier for making the entire tour very lively, engaging and knowledgable. The tour started right on time and kept us wanting for more at the end of it.

You have to do this tour if you are in PARIS , as soon as you arrive, or you will regret that you did not learn as much as we did. this was wine 101 class. The origins, the regions, the soil, the weather, the types of grapes. The somallier was so knowledgeable, and so excited, welcoming, and happy about his tour group, and answered all the questions, and even quizzed us on our knew knowledge. I will take this tour again, and again. Money well spent. The gift shop is and wines are very reasonably priced, that you can purchase from the 3 glasses of wine you sampled during the tour. I highly recommend it , and will do it again.
