Such a great event and loved having a virtual option in order to gift experiences during the pandemic. Ruth and Mike are so knowledgeable and all the guests had a good. Would definitely do this again for another event!

Our team had a great night with Tara and Bon Beer Voyage virtual beer & chocolate tasting. Tara was knowledgeable, engaging and entertaining. Everyone loved the event and we couldn’t have asked for a better “holiday party” given the times. I’d love to go on one of BeerBonVoyage’s trips one day.

Here’s our linkedIn post about the event:

Super fun event. Bon Beer Voyage was great to work with!

In these times of Covid we are searching for ways to still entertain out customers. We organized 2 virtual Oktoberfest events with Bon Beer Voyage and they really hit it out of the park. The hosts were engaging, knowledgeable and fun. We will definitely consider Bon Beer Voyage for future events, both virtual and in person

Ruth and Mike entertained us, shared their amazing knowledge and created a very fun experience for our team!!!
Look forward to one of the Europe tasting tours with you both!
Thanks from the Netwoven Team!

Microsoft Finance Rotation Program had a fantastic time tasting beer and chocolate with Ruth and Mike for our program graduation. They were responsive and easy to work with during the planning process and the actual event was so much fun. They are very knowledgeable and do a great job keeping things interesting and keeping everyone engaged during the event. We have already booked another event with them!

It was a great event. You made it fun and informative. The pairing of the beers and cheese were perfect. Never would have thought of those. Thanks for a fun time.


– Gary Sibner, B'nai Israel Brotherhood

This was a lot of fun. Great to try new beers and pairing with cheeses. Thanks for doing this

Mike and Ruth made everyone feel comfortable and were knowledgeable and entertaining.

Bon Beer Voyage is the perfect addition to your team building exercise. It was great. thank you.



This fundraising event raised money for my campaign and was fun for everyone. It was interactive and kept everyone’s attention. There were attendees at all knowledge levels, from novice to expert, and we all learned something from the class. Highly recommended!

We loved you two – so nice how you both play off of each other and interact!

It was a pleasure working with Ruth and Mike! Their beer knowledge is matched by their hosting skills. I was skeptical about a virtual beer tasting at first, but now I’d gladly take part in another. And I’d love to take one of their beer tours!

We enjoyed the variety of activities–from eating chef-prepared meals in our chateau and truffle-hunting in our small group to the more expansive visit to Carrieres du Lumieres. Most interesting, of course, were the tastings of wines in some exquisite settings in and near Chateauneuf-du-Pape, including at the chateau we stayed at.

– Michael Walsh, Arizona

Ruth and Mike’s knowledge of, and connections in the places we visit are what sets their tours apart. We also like the small group approach, as it makes it easy to get to know our fellow travelers. Dining experiences are first rate, as are accommodations. I also liked the fact that while this was a wine tasting tour, we had plenty of opportunities to sample local craft beer. With Ruth and Mike you will experience things you could never do on your own, or with a large group.

There is no way to see and do on your own all that Ruth and Mike organize for you on one of their trips. Their access to top-notch locations, experiences, and experts is unparalleled! Having all the logistics handled so you can just relax and soak in the beer, wine and sights, makes for the perfect vacation. It’s like traveling with your most efficient, and fun, friends! 

– Kristine L., North Carolina

Likely the best vacation of our lives!

– Janet Hunter and Tom Ralston , Florida

I was expecting a fun, interesting, well-planned, high quality tour and my expectations were not only met, but exceeded. Ruth and Mike share their knowledge of and love for this beautiful area of France and have created this most wonderful “Provence Dream” itinerary.  For me, this is what living in Provence is all about – okay, well-to-do living. If you enjoy wine, great food, a beautiful room in a Chateau overlooking vineyards & lavender, day trips to unique hilltop villages, cooking class with a French chef and many other unique stops and experiences are all perfectly planned out for you. Truffle hunting was my favorite activity. Johann did a great job teaching us, he was charming & funny plus served up a spectacular truffle tasting. More champagne, anyone? 

– Denise Z.

Such a great trip! Ruth and Mike thought of everything and I was able to just relax and enjoy my vacation as everything was taken care of. The Chateau was so awesome! Couldn’t have asked for more. Can’t wait to book my next tour with Bon Beer Voyage!!

My wife and I have been on six commercial beer travel tours (week long) and dozens of shorter not-for-profit tours. BBV’s German River trip was the best organized, most activity packed, and most fun of any! We had a great time and will certainly travel with BBV again.

– Dave Olds, Fenton, Michigan

Traveling with Ruth and Mike is like traveling with old friends! We have gone on beer trips before with other companies and nothing compares to traveling with them! Our first trip to Germany was spectacular! The beer was outstanding and a great time was had by all!

– Annemarie M. , Stamford, CT

This was the best beercation I’ve been on. The planning was second to none and they packed in so many tours, tastings, food and adventure in one week that is hard to imagine. If you just want one tour to go on for your bucket list this would be the company. For me it’s gonna be the standard that will be hard to beat. Can’t wait for the next one. Cheers to Ruth and Mike.

Thank you or your professionalism and for giving us a trip of a life time experience. I thought it was beyond perfect. Ruth and Mike were amazing. Everything detail was well planned and thought out, and the execution was flawless. They added fun surprises along the way, keeping things even more fresh and exciting. The itinerary they came up with was amazing and we loved everywhere we visited. The beers were all delicious! Not only did we visit cool places, we really got unique experiences, meeting the brewers and getting very personalized tours. The barge was great and staff and food was fantastic. Thank you!

– Dayle Layhee, Huntington Beach, CA

This is not a regular river cruise- it is  a beer tour designed for those that want to discover and learn and then end up with a great adventure!

– Arick Pinsk, Delray Beach, FL

We have been on several Beercations with Bon Beer Voyage and they are the best! Mike and Ruth go to great lengths to make these a great experience. They are fun and educational. They have a good balance between activity and free time. The meals are excellent, the beers are out of this world. And there are always a lot of laughs and joviality. You will not regret your decision to go on on of these trips.

– Bill McFee, Boca Raton, FL

What a great beercation! Everything was well planned and thought out, Mike and Ruth are fun and informative. I would book another trip with Bon Beer Voyage again!
