A wine tour with very little wine
suzanne watson 07/23/2022
I was happy to get onto this tour as everything else was fully booked up. I liked the tour guide Theo, he was great, but I’ve never been on a wine tour that offered so little wine. The tastings were only 4 glasses ( 2 at each chateau) with the smallest pours I’ve ever seen. I’ve been on many many wine tours in different countries (including France) but I’ve never had such little value for money. Sorry, I wish I didn’t have to say this but it’s true.

An afternoon wine tour in St-Emilion
Kelly and Stephen Yong 07/21/2022
This was a great tour. Convenient, efficient, and fun. Our guide was knowledgeable and took us to two wineries plus the village of St. Emilion. She walked us around the main sites of the town and had us stop by a famous macaron shop. Seeing and visiting St. Emilion and a part of the Bordeaux wine country was well worth the effort, and the access and convenience offered by the private tour was worth it. I wish we could have had more time in wine country and would recommend this tour to others.

Darren Marcangelo 07/09/2022
Remi was absolutely amazing. He taught us so much about wine and the whole day from start to finish was perfect. Lunch at the château was wonderful and the wines we tastes and (bought!!) were exceptional. Would highly recommend

A sunny afternoon in Medoc
Philip BAKER 06/15/2022
Had a great experience, there were 6 of us on the tour, Remy our driver was very knowledgeable on both the area and wine production. The two Chateaux we visited (one being a 1855 Cru) were very different, the second, Lamothe-Bergeron had a very high tech visitor centre using light shows and holograms to illustrate the wine production. Great afternoon out, the sun was shining, wine and snacks were flowing, even if you are not a wine buff, this tour is equally enjoyable for all the family!

Wonderful tour of the Medoc region
Joyce Tse 06/14/2022
Our group had a fun time learning about left bank Bordeaux wines, and of course sampling and tasting them! The wineries we visited were beautiful and made delightful wines. Our guide's restaurant recommendation for the night was absolutely delicious as well! Thank you so much for a fun day! (I forgot the name, so sorry, but we took the morning Medoc tour on June 9th)!
