  • A WONDERFUL tour! During the heatwave of July ’22, my husband and I joined Brent for his Cocoa & Grapes tour around Carcassonne. Not only did we get to taste some of what the areas has to offer in terms of incredible wine and outstanding chocolate, but we finished the tour having learned so much about the wine industry/production and the history of the area too. We found ourselves referring back to “remember Brent told us that…” throughout the rest of our stay in France, linking it to what else we saw and experienced! Brent was very informative but in a conversational way and we easily found ourselves in extended discussions with him and sharing a few laughs along the way. He was a considerate tour guide when it came to coping with the heat but he also gave us an understanding of Carcassonne as a community. This was out first day of our holiday, and the tour really helped us get our bearings of the town both geographically and culturally. We made some purchases of wine and chocolate during the tour but there was no pressure to do so. Brent added a few extra treats along the way which we were so appreciative of too. If you are pondering doing this tour, I would highly recommend that you book, you won’t be disappointed.
  • Brent is an absolute pleasure of a guide, and an absolute expert on all things chocolate, wine, and Carcassonne! The history facts Brent shared throughout the tour added such an interesting perspective to a beautiful city. Each of the local businesses we visited (and their owners) were incredible, and their food and drinks divine. I cannot recommend Cocoa & Grapes more!
