Good value for money as the tour included tasters at the end. Interesting tour of the production of the liquor and the history. Must book in advance so that the guide you are given can speak English.

Standing in front of the building, parking on the right of the premises. Great tour, good explanation in different stages. The complex looks like a nice working environment. 10% discount in the shop, supermarket still cheaper. Except for some products only available in the boutique and tax-free shops. Nice bottle of Remy-Martin cognac available for deep pockets.

Visited after looking at parts of city centre, with three other (adult) family members and me in wheel-chair. Tour very good, with English-speaking guide (Thomas) who made it all very interesting. Quite a bit of walking involved but worthwhile. After the tour the tasting was very good, and we bought some bottles to take away.

Niki was very keen on visiting and even though I am not a big drinker, I was keen on going as well. We did the tour at 10 euros each - well worth the money, and found out all about the history, the advertising and the production. Really interesting with a guide that also spoke English. We were also given... More

The tour was very informative and iPad's they loaded us gave us great info in English. The tasting was the highlight with Cointreau neat and... More

It was really interesting to learn about the history of Cointreau, and seeing the production facility. Some of their old marketing materials (and their new ones) might not be the most appropriate for children - someone brought their son on the tour we were on, who could not have been older than 12 years old. The tasting after the tour... More

The visit to the Cointreau factory was AMAZING! We started off with a very detailed tour of the whole factory that lasted about an hour and a half. It was the tour guide's first tour in English but he did an amazing job detailing the production process, history of Cointreau, and advertising of Cointreau. Then after the tour was a... More

Didn't know a lot about this specific liquor but after the tour I was an expert! Lol! The drinks were good and to actually see it get bottled was pretty cool! Interesting and fun tour.
