Full description
This full-day tour takes you into the vineyards of the Côte de Beaune. After adjusting your helmet and a short briefing about how to use the bicycles, you will ride into the heart of the Burgundy wine region. This bike tour in Burgundy has everything from wine tasting, to visiting the charming 13th century medieval castle which was home to a Count and Countess of Burgundy. Enjoy a breathtaking cycle through the hills of the Côte de Beaune passing vineyards, villages, and fields. Take in the sights, smells, and sounds before sitting down to a full lunch at a small restaurant nestled amongst the Beaune hills. After lunch you will ride downhill to the Grand Cru of Puligny-Montrachet. You will enjoy a wine tasting session at the vineyard and learn about the different vines in Burgundy.

Here you will sample 3-4 wines from the area. You also have the chance to buy some bottles directly from the seller – the winemaker will deliver the bottles to your hotel or could send it home for you.

Ricky was an excellent guide, wealth of knowledge about area and local wine production. Meal at local restaurant was excellent. 2 wineries we did tastings at were great representation of the area. My only concern is the description of the bike riding. There were some pretty steep hills in the beginning. Great day all around.

Best way to learn more about Bourgogne and wines from the district.

This was a perfect way to see more of Burgundy/Beaune and to learn more about the wines from this district. We were only 8 persons in the group which is a perfect size for a private guided tour. The tour we biked was beautiful, through vine yards and castles. The bikes were also perfect and our guide Eric was good at explaining and gave a lot of useful information which inspired us. The wine tasting in two different vine castles were professional and well arranged. We thought that the price was quite high, but lunch was also included (except wine for lunch) and the tastings we got was of a good quality, which makes the cost for this tour reasonable! We are really happy that we decided to go on this tour, it was one of the best days on our whole vacation!

The bike ride was both informative and fun.

We had a wonderful time on the bike tour through the Bourgogne vinyards. Our guide was very knowledgeable and did everything to make us comfortable, even with the weather not cooperating all the time (rain). The castle we saw was neat, and we got to taste plenty of different wines as well as had a great lunch. I am so glad we got to experience Burgundy this way.
