We thoroughly enjoyed this tour of two wineries in the Medoc region. Our guide Lea met us on time and shared her impressive knowledge of wine growing in the Bordeaux region as we drove through the beautiful countryside to and from the wineries. The experience at each of the wineries, although quite different, were both very informative and enjoyable including tastings. we were not hesitate to do additional tours with this group and highly recommend them.

Did the half-day wine estate tour- nice guide and driver- safe- visited 2 wineries and stopped at the premium Margeaux Chateau for photos. Nice intro to the exceptional Bordeaux wine region and tasty samples of several levels of red wines. Would do it again or take the full day tour.

Hugo was excellent and very informative. We stopped at two wineries and had an explanation and tasting at both. Estates were lovely.

This half day tour was the greatest. Two wineries is the perfect number to visit in a day. Each winery was unique with their respective winemakers being very knowledgeable, and wonderful people. The two wineries also complimented each other very well with little overlap. Helen, our tour guide was fantastic. She was energetic, entertaining, and fun. The time went by quickly and the ride home was made quite amusing with a game that she played with us.

Picked up by our lovely, helpful, knowledgable and enthusiastic guide Helen, spot on time in new Mercedes mini-van. I had low expectations as these types of tours can be touristy and poor, but it surpassed all expectation. Seven of us on the our, I'd say all 30s to 50s. We visited Ch. Prieure- Lichine and Ch Marquis de Terme, both 4th growth Margaux. Both had exceptional visitor centres including 'lifestyle' shops and gave us a wonderful tour of vinyard , wine making process and cellars. Both guilds excellent. We tasted one red and one white at the first and a rose and two reds at the second. I'd expected to visit lower classed chateau, but we sampled the Grand Vin at each and both were beautiful properties. As someone in my 50s who buys some pretty good wine and has WSET Level 3, I was still impressed and learned a bit too. Superb all round.

Our guide, Hugo, was absolutely fantastic. The tour involved two tours of different vineyards in the Margeaux region; both of which were truly interesting, supplemented by Hugo's great knowledge of Bordeaux wine. Both vineyards involved tastings of high quality wines. Just as a disclaimer, my wife and I selected the Medoc tour as we are both very fond of wines that have a heavy Cabernet Sauvignon content, but by visiting Margeaux, the wines that we tasted were much more Merlot-heavy. Not to say the wines were bad, because they weren't, just not consistent with our preferences. Overall, a really fun day.

This tour exceeded my expectations! Our guide Luigi was knowledgeable and incredibly patient. He made sure to answer all of our questions even the 'stupid' ones and gave us time to take photos of the Chateaux' and surrounding areas. As well as this, he made the experience fun and light hearted we played a smelling game on our way back. We were a group of 4 young girls with little to no knowledge about wine, but thanks to Luigi we've come home confident that we know all there is to know about Bordeaux wine. It's one of the best tours I've taken and I recommend it 100

Really enjoyed our tour with Ugo. The size of the group meant you could ask lots of questions and Ugo was really knowledgeable about the region and the wines, as well as being very friendly and enthusiastic as well as being very polite. We couldn't have had a better host. We visited two chateaus and both were interesting for different reasons, and the wine was lovely. The tour was not too long to be tedious, and we would definitely recommend this company. Also excellent value for money, especially when looking at the prices of the competitors.

An excellent tour of 2 chateaux in the Medoc region. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. The conversation was informative and fun between stops which made the time pass quickly. We were in the Margaux area specifically and stopped at Chateau Haut-Breton and Chateau Dauzac. There was also a brief stop to view Chateau Margaux itself though only from the gate. Both chateaux had friendly and helpful reps to guide us through the grounds and the wine making process. The wine tastings were excellent as well. In all an excellent tour and well worth the cost.

Excellent tour guide and very knowledgeable personnel at the chateaux. A great opportunity for tasting some of the higher end priced wines.

We learnt a lot about the region and appellations. The small group meant that we could ask more questions and we got to taste and blend wines which was fantastic. The visit to the wineries was good and also very interesting to learn about the wine-making process.

It was a very fun and informative tour. Our guide, Marion, was very knowledgeable and attentive towards us during the trip. We liked that she also showed us attractions in Bordeaux itself and not only the vineyards and chateaux. Overall, it was a great tour and a nice way to spend the day.
