Margaux était vraiment "la magnifique"!
André Lefrançois 07/10/2019
Une guide délicieuse, soucieuse de rencontrer les intérêts du visiteur et experte en oenologie, trois domaines représentatifs de l'appellation et assez différents (quel bonheur de visiter le Marquis de Terme!), et le confort d'un mini-bus délicieusement climatisé pendant la canicule (et harmonieusement piloté!). Quoi de plus pour recommander cette activité, surtout si elle est gérée par Caroline?

An afternoon in Margaux with a squeaky van
ann 06/19/2019
This trip offered two vineyard visits with tasting and a look at the Margaux vineyard from the gate. The tour was well structured with two different experiences and the guide informative and organised. Unfortunately the passenger van had an annoying squeak/ rattle in the rear which made hearing the guide very difficult and uncomfortable for the three back seat passengers. We advised the guide, who couldn’t rectify the problem, and then provided a sound recording to assist the mechanics in sorting it out. Sadly we haven’t heard back from the Tour company in over two weeks which is disappointing.

Hi Ann, It is nice to see you enjoyed the tour despite this mechanical problem. We are working on fixing it and we also use a micro so that the guide can be heard in the back of the van.

Excellente expérience. Le guide était très aimable et compétente. On aurait apprécié plus de temps libre pour explorer St Emilion mais je n'hésitérais pas à recommander cette excursion.

Answer from Max Travel

interessante giornata bordolese
Tiziana 06/14/2019
La giornata è stata ben organizzata e la visita alla vigna degli chateaux con relativa degustazione molto interessante. La nostra guida, Carolina, brava e cordiale ci ha accompagnato per tutta la visita avendo attenzione che tutto funzionasse. Ho apprezzato il pranzo organizzato presso il primo chateaux, mangiare all'aperto con vista sulla vallata di Bordeaux è stato molto bello e rilassante. Sicuramente consiglio la visita.

Beaucoup d'explications fournies lors de la visite du Château.Très agréable et instructif. Déjeuner sympathique dans un petit restaurant typique à St. Emilion. Malheureusement le guide n'a pas participé au déjeuner. Il nous a simplement déposé, ce qui brise un peu l'atmosphère. Il aurait certainement pu nous raconter beaucoup de choses sur la région pendant le déjeuner. La visite guidée du village de St. Emilion s'est passée un peu trop dans la hâte. Toute l'excursion était sur une demi-journée et le guide voulait "en venir" dans les délais impartis. Malgré le fait de se sentir un peu brusqué à partir du début de l'après-midi, je recommande cette visite.
