This trip was fantastic, I did the 5 hour St-Emilion tour. Quentin was our guide and he was wonderful, highly recommend!

Yan was a fantastic guide! We only had one full day in Bordeaux, so this tour allowed us to take our time in the morning then meet up to leave. We went to two Chateaux, one larger and one smaller, both with incredible wine. Yan was also very knowledgeable about the wine making process and the many Chateaux around. Overall an amazing tour!

Our guide Guillaume was friendly and informative. We had enough time in between places to really take in the Chateaux(s), experience the wine and walk around. We didn't feel rushed at all which was good. Even the car ride to and from was filled with interesting facts about the city's history and Bordeaux wine. All in all I highly recommend this tour for anyone (couples or solo) who want a great 1-day experience without doing any of the heavy lifting.

Cannot fault this tour! From the moment we left with our Tour guide Jerome, we had the most amazing experience and learnt so much about St Emilion, wine and much more. Truly worth every penny spent...

Great wine tasting tour of small family owned and larger wineries. Guide was very knowledgeable. Although, he spoke Spanish a lot because there was a Spanish couple but more English speaking group got annoyed.

This tour was a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Worth it to see some of the countryside surrounding Bordeaux. The 2 wineries visited were both stunning but the highlight was the town of St Emilion. Our guide, Remi, was super knowledgeable of both wine and history. Highly recommend.

Our tour was a focus on the sights and tastes of the St Emilion wine region near to the beautiful city of Bordeaux. Everything about the day tour was first class the guide, transport, sightseeing and the wine tasting. For people who have a strong interest in learning about the best in French wines this tour is a must small tour group, gorgeous vineyards and chateaux and an easy and friendly approach to the tastings of the best vintagest with great food also supplied.....no skimping there at all.

After a fantastic day touring and tasting the best French wines in the St Emilion area near to Bordeaux, we decided to follow it up the following day with another tour of vineyards and wineries this time in the Medoc area. We were certainly not disappointed and once again we had a memorable experience provided by friendly and knowledgeable guides and the owners and winemakers who happily opened up their facilities, processes and gorgeous chateaux to us. The tour gave us the ability to compare and contrast the wine styles and tastes in the Medoc with those in St Emilion which we had experienced the previous day. We can't recommend these tours highly enough and, whether you just want to experience the best in French wine and food accompaniments, or you are serious about your choice of wines and want to taste the best, this may well be the tour for you.

Our guide was fabulous! Very knowledgeable and personable. Everyone loved her. The scenery is breathtaking, and the vineyards we visited in St-Emilion were amazing. Nice tastings! I bought a very nice bottle that I was told would be good for 20 years. I plan to drink it way before that time!

This was a fabulous tour of two very different chateau vineyards. The tour guide was very knowledgable about the area, although the wine tastings were conducted by experts from the vineyards themselves. St-Emilion is a delightful little town.

This was exactly what I had wanted. Small group of 8 people, St-Emilion wine tasting and a wonderful driver/ guide. I could only fit into the 1/2 day trip because the full day, small group wouldn't take a single person. That would be my only complaint, is that people traveling solo are limited to a very few choices unless they go on the big group tours.

Great guide. Loved that they take you to one big and one small family vineyard. The small group size is a nice plus.

Wow getting to know wine and the beautiful village of St Emillion. A wine experience that shouldn't be missed.

I love this tour. The tour Leader Manon was very informative. 2 Chateaus we visited were great and great comparison one over the other. What a contrast. I wished that we would spend more time at St Emilion village, we were there only for 10 minutes, I could stay there for 1 hour.

Our guide was very knowledgeable about the entire Bordeaux region. The wine tasting at two vineyards was fun and educational. I highly recommend this tour.

Visited Chateau Soutard, Chateau Baleau and Sain Emilion. Enjoyed some wine tasting, looked at wine making processes. It was a good experience.

The tour Medoc was very well organized with a lot of personal flavor guide: Louis and competent, charming explanations by the local staff in the Chateaux. It did not feel at all like just a program execution, but more like a joyful afternoon with a lot to discover, taste and learn.

We went to St-Emilion for half day. The chateaus we visited are Chateau Soutard, Cahteau Cote de Baleau and we also went to Jubile de Saint Emilion. I like both of chateaus where we visit!
