We had a lovely time on the tours and I definitely learned a lot. Thanks


Pleased we chose a different month to visit this year, it was great to be able to walk close to the vines whilst you explained everything and it was good to have seen the grape harvest machines at work. We both enjoyed the day many thanks.


Friendly and informative.

Thanks we had a great day Again!


Could have had a shorter lunch period but now understand most venues close for lunch, but still enjoyed our very good tour.

You made our visit very special/thank you and our best to madame Beatriz


Going to bore dinner guests now with what we know!


The tasting at Henri's was a real treat. Thank you!


It's a thumbs up!



The four of us had a great time, thanks, you chose some really interesting places to visit over our two days which we would not have found on our own.


The places you took us to were all so interesting and we enjoyed meeting the charming people. Certainly spoilt for choice when it came to the tastings so will always remember the day we had with you.


Had a very interesting day, my husband so enjoyed all the Cognacs. But for me Pineau saved the day!


We had a fabulous day, and decided to return to Cognac for the day, so here enjoying ourselves in the town center. Will be contacting you soon to book another trip. Cheers.


Thank you very much, we have had a wonderful time.


Thanks, we had a great day!


We had an excellent time. The highlight was talking to the private owners and seeing their operations.


Well we've had a great day, thank you, especially liked the private visits to those great producers this afternoon. Wish we had more luggage space!

Philippe looked too young to have such a breadth of knowledge, no wonder you take visitors there. Thanks, a great day.

Many thanks for an excellent tour last Tuesday, we all loved it and in particular Beatrice, she was so enthusiastic about it all.

Saint Emilion: All in all - A terrific day!

We all really REALLY enjoyed today and look forward to tomorrow.

We had a wonderful time and thanks for making it special for us. The drive and information along the way was priceless and we will remember your hospitality as well as your friend Daniel and his estate.

Thank you so much for making this a tour of a lifetime!

Great ! The visit at the barrel maker was amazing, had no idea of the work and skill involved, just wish we could have picked a cooler day! Something I will remember for ever.

Well, the quality of the Cognacs you took us to taste was far superior to what we imagined we would be trying. There is certainly plenty to even surpass the corporate giants. Thanks for a great day and the introduction to the real thing.

Disappointed Hennessy was still closed but your tour made up for it and we probably understand the whole process more now.

Really enjoyed our visit to Remy Martin and look forward to engaging you again for a Bergerac wine tour.

Finally made it to Cognac and we were glad we made the journey. Your tour was spot on, thanks again.

Great Day! Great start to our tour of Europe, but above all we tasted some amazing Cognacs, had no idea there are so many quality producers. Thanks for a really enjoyable day.... hope to be back to taste all the others soon!


Greetings and thanks for the information. We certainly enjoyed our tour of Cognac thanks to your pleasant company and great information. We will certainly recommend your tour to others.

It was a pleasure to meet you yesterday. We had a wonderful visit to Courvoisier and enjoyed it enormously.  As we were all driving our degustations were carefully controlled ( with some difficulty) but we made up for it later that evening back at our hotel! Thank you too for your restaurant recommendations- we ate at Bistro Claude and had an excellent meal . Vieux Cognac is delightful. 

We have moved on now to Limoges but will always have good memories of Jarnac ,Courvoisier and the Yeuse despite a rather brief visit. 

With best wishes from the 6 of us.

Thank you for a wonderful day. The assessment was unanimous: we all thoroughly enjoyed our introduction to Cognac


Thanks for such a great day we all so enjoyed it  better than we expected. Watch out for photos on facebook! Will be sure to recommend you.

Hi Jane

Thanks so much for the great day you planned it so well. The visits have awoken my interest in Cognac now I know the different ways to enjoy it - hubby still a traditionalist though! THANKS  we will definitely recommend you and hope you will be able to provide same itinerary for my sister and husband when they visit later in the year.



Sorry for a bit delay with my mail back. I'd like to thank you very much on behalf of the group.

It was actually a brilliant program on the very wild cognac factory (the first visit) and for all of us it was one of the most flash during the whole trip.

No doubt that we will come back and start program only from visiting Christoph.

Wish you a nice day and send you pictures a bit later

Dear Jayne,

We had a wonderful time with you, Stephen and Christophe.  As I said in my last e-mail, I shall highly recommend your tours on Cruise Critic.  

Very best regards

I would just like to thank you for the very enjoyable day Phil and I spent with you last Thursday. We learnt a lot  about Cognac as a town and a drink. Our three days in France were perfect. 


August 2013

Thank you for a wonderful tour for my mom and her friend.  They had a fabulous time!

They are both home and talkative about their trip!  I will write more to you soon.

We just got back to Dubai yesterday and slept all day ! Paris was a wonderful and tiring trip. 

The highlight of our holiday was definitely the tour of Cognac, and I cannot thank you enough for such a wonderful time we had.

We will definitely come back again and stay in Bordeaux and spend more time in Cognac. 

The rains were bad when we were leaving Paris to the airport, I hope it is all settled now.

Again, thank you so much Jayne for your time and effort, it was so much fun.

See you soon,

Hi, Jayne, thank you so much for yesterday - your planning and 

understanding of what we were looking for is greatly appreciated.

Hi Jayne,

I just wanted to thank you and your husband for a really wonderful day.  Ranj was over the moon with what had been organised and you really did make the whole trip very special. Thank you so much for the attention you put in and we will both highly recommend you to work colleagues and friends. Thanks again.

Dear Jayne,

We had a lovely day.  I think, if I were to be very critical, it would have been nice to have had a little longer for our lunch break.  Through no fault of Bacchus, we were a bit rushed and did not have time to enjoy a relaxing desert or coffee afterwards as Le Lion D’or was very busy and the service was consequently compromised.  What we did have we enjoyed but had to go and pay the bill whilst still having food on our table and, even then, we were a little late at our next appointment. I realise that we had a very full schedule and we didn’t want to miss out on this but another half hour for lunch would have made all the difference.  

We would, however, have no hesitation in recommending Bacchus to others. We were pleased to find that Marion, at Rollan de By, knew of your company and holds you in high regard.

Thank you...Your tour was certianly beyond our expectations in terms of how you were both so kind and warm. The personal service blew us away. You truly do go above & beyond for your clients offering a quality second to none so thankyou ever so much once again We had a very early night and are ready for our adventure to st emilion. We are particularly excited about this destination, as we were about cognac.

Best of luck for the summer season and i hope your business generates the success it deserves.
