Repetitive and overpriced

The tour felt rushed and repetitive. At the first winery no one could understand the woman giving the presentation from the winery. Her accent was very strong and I thought it was just me until after I spoke to other people and we agreed no one knew what she was saying. The wineries were okay, I expected a bit more of a chateau setting. Both wineries gave the same presentation on how the wine is made. I would have liked more time in St. Emilion. At the beginning of our tour a couple showed up eating so we had to wait for them to finish to start the drive. Maybe that’s what delayed us. We should have just gone without them. In the end not worth $99 Euro. I’d find another tour.
Poor Contact _ Great Tour

Instructions to meeting guide was initially good when purchasing tour. However when following initial instructions of location and type of black van and name written on side of van it did not exist. The lady who then pointed to our meeting point was quite rude and nothing like what was described. Different location, Grey vac and nothing written on the side of the van. Once united with our guide all went smoothly and enjoyed the experience and the tour.
Great afternoon

This tour with Theo was excellent and a memory making part of our trip. The wineries selected were great, Theo was always helpful and entertaining, and the walk through Saint Emilion was wonderful. Highly recommend this trip to other visitors to the area.
