'Elia' was an excellent tour guide- interesting, fun, insightful but not pretentious. Good tour overall.

Enjoyable and informative morning with a fun and knowledgeable driver. Both chateaux were well selected to provide different experiences. Chateau Larrivet Haut Brion was particularly interesting with innovative vinification methods and of course great wine - the white graves was fantastic.
Enjoyable and educational

The tour was a great introduction to the wines of Bordeaux. Our guide, Hugo, was very helpful and gave lots of great information and was always willing to answer questions. Lunch was incredible and seeing and visiting the wineries was wonderful. The trip was laid-back and relaxing. I highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to learn about Bordeaux wines and see some of the countryside.
Great tour!

We really loved our afternoon in St-Emilion. Mathilda was our guide and she was so good in explaining everything and giving tips and advices. If you make the tour, ask for Mathilda as a guide. Didn't had such a good guide in a long while. The chateaus we visit were very interesting and also there the guides spoke very good english. Chateau Cote de Baleau will stay forever in our memories, the place is just beautiful and their wine is excellent. The short visit of St-Emilion village was also great. I recommend this tour, its really worth your money. We did the day afterwards also the great Margaux tour which was okay, but our afternoon in St-Emilion was so much better. It is important to have a powerful guide. Thank you Mathilda, you are awesome! Jennifer & Otto

The guide brought coffee and croissants and we had that on top of the dune - that was great.
