Further information

Beyond the discovery of the climates, go to meet the soul of the terroir of the great emblematic wines of the Côte de Beaune and discover the keys. Follow the guide along a route designed exclusively for you. The excursion includes a private tasting in situ in the vineyards of a white or red wine according to your preferences from a great Burgundy wine house.The appointment is fixed 5 / 10 minutes before departure to be able to equip the helmet (mobcap available on request), motorcycle goggles and know the latest instructions on the tour. The start is fixed at Meursault, capital of the great white wines of Burgundy,Always surrounded by the best vintages of the south coast of Beaune, the route will take small roads with little traffic to reveal the most secret corners of the region. The tour is designed to offer you the very first keys to understanding the Burgundy terroir.This experience is to live as a private ride, the sidecar carrying only two passengers. It is an ideal concept for couples. However, the circuit remains adaptable according to your wishes. Don't hesitate to talk about it. Similarly, it may be possible to extend the outing on simple request and if the next time slot is free by half-hour increments.Photo stops are planned very regularly at the best places (see highlights of each circuit) but we can make a stopover on simple request from you if you particularly like the place.Strong points: • Firstly: the unique experience of traveling aboard an exceptional vehicle • Then being as close as possible to the vineyard • The "mountain" of Saint Christophe and its fantastic panorama over Meursault and the vines• The landscape reading table in the middle of the Grands Crus of Puligny and Chassagne• The sensational view of the village of Saint-Aubin from the road to Blagny• The crossing of the villages or hamlets of Blagny, Gamay, Saint-Aubin, Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet, Santenay, La Rochepot, Orches, Saint Romain.• The unexpected and grandiose view of the castle of La Rochepot from the top of the village• Crossing the village of Orches at the foot of the cliffs• The fantastic panorama from the top cliffs with a view of the Jura and the Alps (depending on the weather) • Crossing the village of Saint Romain and its cooperages • Finally, the commented tasting of a wine from a great Burgundy house

It was fun to ride the motorcycles through the vineyards, but one of the two guides was unprofessional and odd

The primary guide knew wine, the vineyards, topography and villages. His partner - the guy that evidently helps from time to time - took far too many pictures of my 16 year old daughter. I had to ask him to stop. He also told her that he could only speak English at midnight when he was drunk. Amazingly unprofessional - I would not recommend for women, unfortunately. The scenery is beautiful.

Version translated by google translate I am truly sorry that you experienced this in this way and I sincerely apologize. To begin with, thank you for your comments about the main pilot (myself) and the beauty of the landscapes. On the other hand, it is true that the second pilot is an occasional pilot who has no tourist culture. However, this person is of impeccable honesty and was simply looking, without thinking twice, to take souvenir photos of this experience. You did very well to ask him to stop taking pictures if it didn't suit us. I have to admit that I wasn't careful enough at the time. I personally put hospitality at the heart of Rétro-Tour Bourgogne's concerns from the beginning so that this activity is recommendable to everyone without distinction and your comment, I thank you, encourages me to redouble my efforts. The anecdote you mention about "speaking English at midnight" is a misunderstanding between this casual guide and you. I am responsible for this to the extent that I certainly did not insist enough with him on the notion of professionalism and the necessary discretion and kindness to be had with clients especially from different cultures and I will be particularly attentive to this in the future . Without excusing him, he simply wanted to ask in a very clumsy way for your indulgence regarding the fact that he does not speak English because it can be frustrating or annoying not to be able to make yourself understood in your own environment. I'm sorry that you misinterpreted it. His touch of humor which I agree was not very subtle but was not insulting at all only served to mask his discomfort in the face of this situation which was not at all comfortable for him. I certainly won't be able to erase the unpleasant impression you felt, but I hope I have been able to clarify things with you and the people who will read us. Thank you for your understanding. Please know that as far as I am concerned, I had a great pleasure in welcoming you and I wish you great experiences whatever the places you visit. Version originale Je suis franchement désolé que vous ayez vécu cette expérience de cette manière et je vous prie bien volontiers de m’en excuser. Pour commencer merci de vos commentaires à propos du pilote principal (moi-même) et de la beauté des paysages. D’autre part c’est vrai que le deuxième pilote est un pilote occasionnel qui n’a pas de culture touristique. Néanmoins cette personne est d’une honnêteté irréprochable et cherchait simplement sans penser à mal à faire des photos souvenir de cette expérience. Vous avez très bien fait de lui demander d’arrêter de prendre des clichés si cela ne nous convenait pas. Je dois reconnaitre que je n’ai pas été assez vigilant sur le coup. Je mets personnellement l’accueil au cœur des préoccupations de Rétro-Tour Bourgogne depuis le début pour que cette activité soit recommandable à toutes et à tous sans distinctions et votre commentaire, je vous en remercie, m’encourage à redoubler d’efforts. L’anecdote dont vous parlez à propos de « parler anglais à minuit » est un malentendu entre ce guide occasionnel et vous. J’en suis responsable dans la mesure où je n’ai surement pas assez insisté avec lui sur la notion de professionnalisme et la nécessaire discrétion et bienveillance à avoir auprès des clients surtout de culture différente et j’y serai particulièrement attentif à l’avenir. Sans l’excuser, il voulait simplement solliciter d’une manière très maladroite votre indulgence quant au fait qu’il ne parle pas anglais car ça peut être frustrant ou vexant de ne pas pouvoir se faire comprendre dans son propre environnement. Je suis navré que l’ayez mal interprété. Son trait d’humour qui j’en conviens n’était pas très subtil mais n’était pas insultant du tout ne servait qu’à masquer son incommodité face à cette situation qui n’avait rien de confortable pour lui. Je ne pourrai certainement pas effacer la désagréable impression que vous avez ressentie mais j’espère avoir pu clarifier les choses avec vous et les personnes qui nous liront. Je vous remercie de votre compréhension. Sachez qu’en ce qui me concerne, j’ai eu un grand plaisir à vous recevoir et je vous souhaite de vivre de belles expériences quels que soient les endroits que vous visiterez. Gilles Goin
