The excursions, except for one, were very nice. One suggestion. On the Thursday we went to the Chateau du Clos de Vougeot in the afternoon and before then we went to a rather ordinary winery. I would suggest skipping the morning winery and instead participating in the 11:30 am guided tour in English followed by lunch and winetasting at Chateau du Clos de Vougeot. The food on L'Imppressionniste was spectacular--particular kudos to chef Arneis.
