Mr & Mrs Goodchild - St Emilion Tour
Simon Goodchild 06/13/2024
My husband and I went on this tour and it was excellent - Emmanuel was fantastic, very friendly, knew everything about the area, the wine and of course St Emilion. He was very helpful with my husband who has mobility issues. Would recommend this tour 100%:)

An ideal way to spend half a day exploring Saint-Émilion
Eimear 06/03/2024
The location for pickup was easily accessible, Emmanuel drove safely and shared lots of interesting information on the journey to the lovely, family run vineyard we visited. We enjoyed our wine tasting at the vineyard after an insightful tour. The pitstop in Saint-Émilion was a nice, swift walking tour of some of the highlights of the area.

Great experience with a green mission!
Jacob Steadman 04/15/2024
We did a half day tour to Château Coutet and Saint Émilion. Emmanuel is incredible and very knowledgable about the region, the wines, and much more. Emmanuel speaks English which was great for my non-francophone partner. I love the mission of Vert Bordeaux! We toured an organic vineyard and the company is very green-forward. Emmanuel also gave us awesome recommendations for some Bordeaux Canelés and dinner. We would definitely do a tour again with Vert Bordeaux next time we’re in Bordeaux.

Five star experience of this St Emilion half day tour
Stephanie Giudice 03/21/2024
Highly recommended tour! Excellent half day tour of Saint Emilion that included a visit to a winery where we learned so much from the owner who explained how their vineyards were harvested, how the climate impacts the production & the different grape varieties including the fermentation process - this experience was the highlight of our weekend stay in Bordeaux. Everyone on the tour loved the wine tasting & experiencing the taste of the different grape varieties. The tour guide was very professional, informative & we would highly recommend this trip!
